Oh my god, they’ve killed Colton! Those b@st@rds!


Relax, guy. I’m not being seriously. He’s fine. He dies in every episode! Inside. Because editing so many podcasts makes him want to suck Chef’s chocolate salty balls. Last week he went insane and said “screw you guys, I’m going home.” Last I heard he went off to hunt for ManBearPig with Al Gore in a quiet pissant mountain town. Don’t know where he is now, but he’s probably fighting the frizzies, at eleven. They mostly come out at night. Mostly.

Me? I’m super! Thanks for asking. But with Colton MIA I had to get someone to sub for him. So I some calls and got Rod Stewart to play a gig at New Year’s in Las Vegas…but it turns out he doesn’t read manga, so he wouldn’t come on the podcast. So, I just got my brother Varun aka VlordGTZ to come on instead! And if you don’t like it, well…you go to hell! You go to hell and you die! Or blame Canada. Their cartoons destroyed Colton’s fragile little mind  Plus, they bombed the Baldwins. Those uncle farting savages.

Well, you gotta do what you gotta do. As long as what you’re doing is cool and popular with everyone. This week we go over a couple of lists that highlight some anime adaptions and Shonen Jump heroines that are about as popular as Scott Malcomson. Plus we run down some other hella kewl news including Spice & Wolf author Isuna Hasekura coming to New York Comic Con, Active Gaming Media’s Tezuka-inspired digital card game, and the upcoming Manga Translation Battle Contest!
