Brum to the Hills! It’s the Birmingham podcast!
The podcast is back in record time with a bonus episode.
Jeremy Graves, Jerome Mazandarani and Andrew Hewson recorded live at the Birmingham Comicon.
00:00 Introductions; Deadman Wonderland confirmed for 1st July on DVD and Blu-ray, and Steins;Gate. Plus an interlude while Jerome talks to his wife, and the slippage noted on Oblivion Island. Appleseed XIII announced for DVD and Blu-ray. An inadvisable plea for audience participation, which is sure to be regretted later on.
08:00 Jerome speculates as to what the plot would be to Schoolgirl Milky Crisis, if he were writing it — it involves girls with udders, and appeals to a “man with a mullet and and axe.”
10:00 The skinny on Hellsing Ultimate, including details of all the extras — a whole blooming disc of ’em. And speaking of Hell, Jerome describes British transport, and narrates the tale of the sandwich he dropped, plus twenty minutes marooned in Northampton with no sight of Alan Moore.
14:00 One Piece coming to the UK on 27th May.
16:00 Surprise Announcement! Fairy Tail season two coming to the UK. Plus the slightly less surprising news about K-on, and the hope that there will be K-on Oyster Card holders on sale in May at the London Comicon. Jormungandr, also coming soon.
19:00 Jerome attempts the Harlem Shake while Jeremy quizzes the audience about their social media habits. Following on from the last podcast, we ask them if they would be prepared to pay Japanese prices for Japanese choice, and take the first Questions From The Audience.
30:00 Jerome on the reasons why dubs can sometimes take time to sort out. What games would the panel like to see an anime based on? The logistics of compressing media onto DVDs. The difference in quality between opening and closing credits and the anime itself in terms of quality. Licensing music rights from the record label. Is there a difference between ramen and Pot Noodles…?
