About Me: I have grown up with anime for most of my life. Whether it's been Robotech or DragonBall Z, I have loved Japanese animation. Enough that i've gone out of my way to explore the many different facets of anime from Angel's egg to Akira. My goal is to bring awareness of classic anime shows and movies that anime fans, stuck in there Naruto or Bleach rut, should see and would enjoy.

About Me: Watching anime has always been a hobby of mine, but I hope that starting this podcast would spur me to watch more anime, and open up my eyes to gems that I have yet to even discover.
Check out my Anime List, and my Manga List to keep up with what I'm reading and watching. Check me out on Crunchyroll as well.

Favorite Anime: One Piece, Dragonball Z
About Me: I have been watching anime for about 3 or 4 years now, and I have thoroughly enjoyed each anime I’ve watched, examples being Seto no Hanayome, Fairy Tail, and Kuroshitsuji. I enjoy watching Naruto Shippuuden, Bleach (even though it is no longer airing), One Piece, the new anime, Sword Art Online, Fairy Tail, and waiting for the continuation of Nurarihyon. If you have suggestions for new anime, or anime that have already been created, please leave us your favorite anime that you have seen and perhaps we will review it in our future podcasts!!

Favorite Anime: Darker Than Black, Nurarihyon no Mago, and Sword Art Online
Favorite Mange: Gantz
About Me: The first anime that I watched as I was growing up would be Sailor Moon and Pokemon. I would only watch them when I could, but I wouldn't go out of my way to do so. Eventually, I started watching DragonBallZ, but I never really got into the anime scene until I began watching Bleach. From there, my archive of anime watched has increased dramatically. I am always keeping my eyes and ears open to other good anime. As for genres, id be willing to watch just about anything.

Favorite Anime: Steins;Gate, Fate/Zero,Ghost in the Shell, Neon Genesis Evangelion
About Me: To start things off, at first glance, I look like your stereotypical jock who likes to play sports and stay active but I’m actually your stereotypical nerd at heart. Back in high school I was in a lot of different sports but never really enjoyed them as much as I enjoy anime.I started watching anime ever since I was a child; Dragon Ball, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Gundam Wing to name a few. Ever since then, I’ve been watching, reading, and just enjoying anime whenever I have the time. An interesting thing about me is that I’m in college right now (studying Computer Networking and Information) and also learning Japanese.

Favorite Anime: Eureka Seven, Soul Eater, Angel Beats
About Me: Hey all! I have been watching anime for the last couple years with my first anime being Eureka Seven. Since then, watching and acquiring anime has been a hobby of mine. While I seem to be acquiring it faster then I watch it, I will someday delve into the deep reaches of my collection. My genre of choice would definitely be science fiction, but I have grown to like some others like the harem “Shuffle” and the period piece “Baccano.”My goal is to continue to support the anime industry and add an interesting perspective to the podcast.
