Episode 48 – The Earth-Shattering Expo! (Part 1)

Episode 48 - The Earth-Shattering Expo! (Part 1)

Anime Expo has come and gone, and in its wake came a good bit of announcements, projects, and even some hype-AF premieres as well. And for the third year in a row, we are here to do a deep dive in all of the momentous excitement, or lack thereof, that AX had to offer in Los Angeles. And we’re joined by our good friend Robert, who actually WAS at AX this year! (Isn’t he lucky…)

In the first part of our show, we have a good bit of news items from before, and even during (but outside of) AX, that range from the wicked cool to the “oh that’s neat” to the kind of things that require referencing GTA San Andreas memes, followed up by the first half of our AX deep dive – and that’s not even EVERYTHING from day 1. Stick around for part 2 of this jam-packed show, folks, because we’re just getting warmed up.
