Episode 50 – For Kyoto Animation (Season 5 Premiere)

Episode 50 - For Kyoto Animation (Season 5 Premiere)

While the start of a new season of shows is always a momentous occasion for this program, real world events find a way to ground everyone and take a much higher priority. On July 18, 2019, the main studio of Kyoto Animation in Japan was the target of a criminal and deadly act of arson, one that resulted in 34 injuries and 35 confirmed deaths, as of July 28, 2019. We can only offer our sincerest condolences to the victims of this horrific tragedy, and to their families and loved ones. If you would like to support the studio, a GoFundMe campaign set up by Sentai Filmworks has been ongoing, and has since raised over $2 million in proceeds to go toward assistance for the studio: https://www.gofundme.com/help-kyoani-heal

For us, though, we’ve got some business to get to for our 50th edition of the show, and we’re joined by our good friend Sketch to talk shop, including some updates for the live-action One Piece and Akira projects, some interesting home video releases coming in the fall, a really neat project coming from Kamikaze Douga founder Junpei Mizusaki and country musician Sturgill Simpson, and the main event of our show – the summer season preview, 30 shows with our first impressions to roam through the best of the season.

Note: the first 35 seconds are intended silence, in remembrance to those who perished in the Kyoto Animation fire.
