Episode 80 – The Discotek SmackDown!

Episode 80 - The Discotek SmackDown!

Even in the midst of cataclysmic chaos the world over, Discotek finds a way to bring us all together to join in the glory of old-ish anime titles coming back for a second chance at fandom life, and with how big of a deal these Discotek Days are you just know that we’re on the case to dive deep into the announcements, the plunder, and all of the joyous wonderment that such a day can bring to all of us. And also on deck, rounding out a fairly-sized show, are the announcements of Funimation acquiring Violet Evergarden, the Shirobako dub cast, Akira coming to 4K Blu-ray this Christmas, and the final stop of a long-running joke of this show for many years: BIG ORDER has a new home.

Also, Stephanie from Dub Talk is back with us – mostly to dunk on Andrew and praise the glory of Satoshi Kon. Not necessarily in that order, either.
