Episode 168 – The February of Our Discourse Discontent.

Episode 168 - The February of Our Discourse Discontent.

As we inch closer and closer out of the winter doldrums, we find more and more cases of rabid internet discourse popping up and it just makes us ask one thing: whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. We don’t like talking about these things, but alas, it is our duty to discuss certain elements of discussion with these topics, namely the topic of what NOT to do when you’re working on a major anime dub production (yes, THAT) as well as the unknown future of a post-Funimation world with that side of the service set to shut down and sunset on April 2nd. Not a very fun time, right now. But we can take solace in the fact that the five-year “LOLsuit” saga seems to finally be at an end, AnimEigo is under new and well-known ownership, and Crunchyroll has more than four Blu-ray releases set to come out in May for the first time in a while. See, it’s not ALL bad, it’s just sorta bad. But we’ll all wade through the murky waters together, and our good friend Sketch is back to fill in for this treacherous journey.

P.S. March may be a bit spotty with shows due to some outside circumstances. Apologies in advance.
