Breaking SilenceOkina

Sat, 03 Mar 2012 06:17:58 +0000

Mike speaks for the first time in almost two years as he looks back on the podcast’s past on the sixth anniversary of the first episode.  He also shares some of his thoughts on the Japanese earthquake and tsunami on the eve of the first anniversary, and the offerings of NHK World beyond its news […](image)

Anime Roundtable #78Okina

Thu, 09 Sep 2010 05:29:18 +0000

After four months of sitting (and a load of wondering from a few places), here’s the episode taped on May 29th 2010, the second night of Anime North. I am sure plenty is out of date still but some things remain timeless…like issues in the biz, Christopher Handley, our annual appearance by Norm, and the […](image)

Anime Roundtable #77Okina

Sat, 29 May 2010 03:59:30 +0000

So after almost a year, the Roundtable comes out of hiding at Anime North. In the return episode, the group shoots the breeze talking about cosplay as an indicator of what’s still popular, convention going at AN, culture shocks as an anime fan after being in Japan, and how times have passed with the end […](image)

Anime Roundtable #76Okina

Sun, 28 Jun 2009 17:53:43 +0000

In this episode, allergies hit the roundtable so hard that it knocks out one of them. Unfortunately for Mike, he wasn’t one of those hit. Therefore he has no excuse for taking almost two weeks to put this up. In this episode, which was already outdated at the time of taping, we talk about further […](image)

Adam’s appearance on BiteTV and updateOkina

Tue, 26 May 2009 02:57:48 +0000

Since it was brought up extensively in the last few days, here’s Adam’s appearance on BiteTV’s The Surf with The Conventioneers. It was actually really good. It’s actually worth watching the rest of the show too, so check it out. Also for those of you wondering, Mike will hopefully add the links of interests […](image)

Anime Roundtable #74Okina

Sat, 23 May 2009 03:45:00 +0000

Night number one from Anime North, so of course we start off with first day impressions along with wondering how the H1N1 flu and the recession have affected the attendance numbers. Then we talk a little bit more about elitism and fan behaviour in light of recent incidents. Among the bullets, Capcom releases, publishers getting […](image)

The Roundtable @ Anime North…and email usOkina

Wed, 20 May 2009 17:23:28 +0000

A final reminder on the tapings of the Roundtable this weekend at Anime North. We’ll be taping two late night shows on the Friday and Saturday at 11pm in the Doubletree Hotel in Video Room #4 (The New York Room), same place as last year.

Anime Roundtable #73Okina

Tue, 12 May 2009 03:00:05 +0000

So with Anime North about 10 days away, the gang talks about what we’ll be doing there…at the end. But before that, thoughts on the flu (which has now hit the Roundtable), Star Trek, the anime bubble, the vultures around CPM, and Sakura Wars sort of making it to North America. This time sort of […](image)

Anime Roundtable #72Okina

Fri, 01 May 2009 03:00:24 +0000

After a week off, Mike is so rusty that everything he talked about this week is really a blur. He does remember Megan returning, and quite a bit of the conversation centering on her ex. Then he recalls some stuff about further eManga prospects, and Pirate Bay. And that’s before the bullets, which he can’t […](image)

Anime Roundtable #71Okina

Fri, 17 Apr 2009 03:00:12 +0000

This week, after complaining about the Toronto transit system and a brief history about SNK (while playing various Samurai Shodown games), we start with two items, one about Amazon and its treatment of mature material, the other about the Philippines and its version of a loli porn ban. In the bullets, James singles out a […](image)

Anime Roundtable #70Okina

Fri, 10 Apr 2009 03:00:00 +0000

Mike decides to take a week off from taping, and returns after dragging James and Adam to see Dog Sees God, and spends the entire first segment reviewing it and talking about fan fiction in the process. Then we tape the bullets twice because of technical difficulties with Mike’s MacBook, where we talk about Taro […](image)

Anime Roundtable #69Okina

Fri, 27 Mar 2009 03:00:00 +0000

Mike rationalizes this episode as something to nicely prepare him for the headache that’ll be taping at Anime North. The episode takes many different tangents as there is no real topic this week. Mike does remember talking quite a bit about the mini convention that passed last weekend in Toronto, the end of yet another […](image)

Anime Roundtable #68: Back to York UOkina

Fri, 20 Mar 2009 03:00:21 +0000

The return to York University, and the likely retirement episode for the iBook that had recorded the show over the past three years. After talk about the York strike aftermath, James’ latest adventures with the exchange student from Osaka, and a tangent about anime DVD re-releases, we’ll take on the second part of the Ryerson […](image)

Anime Roundtable #67Okina

Thu, 12 Mar 2009 03:00:02 +0000

So after Mike does a final check of the equipment, James begins this week with stories about the Japanese exchange student currently at his place.

Mike dropped his jaw and had to pick it up while listening to this again. But here it is, as good as it’ll get, all of what was recorded for the now infamous episode #50. Along with an intro and further thoughts from Mike nine months later. We didn’t get all of it, but you’ll […](image)
