Episode 162 – The Spooktacular Surprises!

Episode 162 - The Spooktacular Surprises!

Well THIS sure became a meaty show, didn’t it? Between the offerings and goings-on at New York Comic Con, Crunchyroll doing a bit of good and QUITE a bit of bad (you all know what it is), and another fantastic Discotek Day event happening, there’s quite a lot to get to in this show. There’s also a neat rundown of the dub cast for The Boy and the Heron, a pair of curious manga anecdotes to take a laugh or two at, even more manga and light novel announcements, and ALL of the goods that Discotek brought to all of us last week. And yes, we get VERY blunt and serious in regards to one upcoming show’s home video release and of how barebones it absolutely should not be. Don’t make it a recurring thing, Crunchyroll.

Next time? PLUTO. Be ready.
