Mid-Spring 2012 Podcast

Podcast   01   Banner

Random Curiosity is proud to present our first ever podcast! In this inaugural episode, the topic is a mid-season retrospective where we introduce our lovely voices and personalities to the world, talk about the shows we like and love but didn’t get to blog about, and discuss some of our favorite characters, music, and animation from this season. Because of the length, we’re offering two different versions: a full-length one including the section about our favorites, and a shorter one with only the series retrospectives. Also, seeing as it’s only our first attempt, please free to give us your suggestions for our next podcast!

    I can totally imagine “theme by Moomba” accompanying a magical girl transformation sequence :)

    • June 4, 2012 at 4:52 amSeishun Otoko

      Would definitely work for Ayumu’s transformation scene XD

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:15 pmKyzel

    Holy yes. *Waves Verdant fanclub flag* *Downloads to listen to later*

    • June 4, 2012 at 11:41 pmverdant

      Haha, I didn’t know I had a fanclub, but uhh… thanks!

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:16 pmCybersteel

    When was this O.o yesterday? Wait that was metanorn…

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:18 pmUnknownSoldier

    Retrospective! How I’ve missed you!

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:19 pmZephyr

    Forgot to mention: People should be watching Sakamichi no Apollon too. :D

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:23 pmSkattack

    A suggestion I have is that instead of having a retrospective of shows already being covered (and so few of them) it’d probably be more productive to shed some light on the series we don’t see on here weekly.

    And at another glance, it looks like you guys mentioned this at the top but the content seems to tell otherwise.

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:23 pmLuxor

    The best season to date just happens to be Diablo 3 season… dammit dammit dammit

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:29 pmNeikeri

    Mmmmm Not have script??¡ No information in spanish only english so bad!! T_T

    • June 3, 2012 at 11:51 pmZanibas

      Attention everyone that desires a transcript: I’m working my butt off right now transcribing this beast after I read this comment. Give me some time because it’s hard as hell, but I guarantee one will come out as soon as I humanely can.

      • June 4, 2012 at 2:42 amBakaMochi

        O: Let me know if you need help with that Zanibas!

      • June 4, 2012 at 6:44 amStilts

        M! Zanibas is an M because he’s doing a transcript of the podcast!

      • June 4, 2012 at 8:08 amMasterDragonKnight

        Indeed. To undertake all of this hard work by yourself, you MUST BE AN M!!!

        And since I will sit back and simply wait for you to produce results, I must be an S!

        ((In any case, thanks for doing this.))

      • June 4, 2012 at 10:47 pmZanibas

        IT IS DONE!

        Thanks to Mochi, Cherrie, and Zephyr for the assistance ^^.

      • June 4, 2012 at 11:27 pmKusabi

        Very much thanx for your hard work… ^_^

      • June 4, 2012 at 11:56 pmkuro

        I can’t believe you actually bothered :O I don’t need it personally, but still. Kudos to you and the others who helped!

      • June 5, 2012 at 8:28 amD-LaN

        Thks, Zani for the subs!!! [/le me tk out reward]

        You get to get some spoilers for my oft-delayed RC fanfic:

        Plz spare me……

      • June 5, 2012 at 8:42 amCherrie

        Yay! Glad to see it up =) thanks for all the hard work Zani! Next time I would suggest transcribing it before we actually post up the podcast.

        @D-LaN: We have a fanfic? o_O I thought Stereo would be paired with Moomba…

      • June 5, 2012 at 9:30 amMoomba

        @Cherrie: I- what? o.o

      • June 5, 2012 at 9:58 amMasterDragonKnight

        A fanfic? Will there be an anime adaptation following? ^^

      • June 5, 2012 at 10:36 am†Croos†

        @Cherrie love triangle makes things burn much better. Moe Moe !

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:29 pmCherrie

    Yay! All the readers can finally hear the writers’ voices =)
    And very well done on the intro Moomba!

    • June 3, 2012 at 10:42 pmLuxor

      Except yours, ma cherie Cherrie. :D

    • June 3, 2012 at 10:55 pmJason

      I thought something was missing from the podcast D:

    • June 4, 2012 at 8:14 amCherrie

      Thanks guys… we’ll see when the next podcast comes around…

      • June 4, 2012 at 8:20 amMasterDragonKnight

        Pretty please with a cherry on top? ^^

      • June 4, 2012 at 9:37 amJason

        Oh thanks. Hope it works out.

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:37 pmClick

    This is why I think that having 14 writers is so great. Previously, this kind of thing would have never been possible.

    Oh, and Stilt’s voice totally did not match my image of him, lol. j/s

    • June 3, 2012 at 10:56 pmStilts

      Ohoho, really now? I’m curious, what’d you think I’d sound like? I’m curious as to what voice my writing projects…and a little scared to hear the answer, heh

      (I’m curious, I’m curious…what am I, Chitanda over here? ^▽^)

      • June 3, 2012 at 11:36 pmClick

        Well, my image of you sort of matched with a person such as this guy.

        But in all seriousness, I just didn’t expect it to be so deep and crackly (not an insult, really!!!). I thought it would be softer and errr… more gushier, if that makes any sense, lol.

        Oh, and verdant’s voice is really soothing. It’s just so smooth and serene.

      • June 3, 2012 at 11:50 pmStilts

        My name isn’t actually Stilts, and I’m definitely not THAT guy >_<>_<

        *hides in a corner and sniffles* So mean!!

      • June 3, 2012 at 11:57 pmClick

        Hah, just what a sex offender would say. You people make me sick.

      • June 4, 2012 at 4:56 amSeishun Otoko

        I pictured you sounding like Sugita Tomokazu but the real thing is sooooo much better. Perfect blend of sexiness and virility ;)

      • June 4, 2012 at 6:45 amStilts

        I need an adult, I need an adult!!

      • June 5, 2012 at 2:34 amSlushiZ

        Your writing- with its abundance of giggles and cute type faces ^▽^ and *hiding in corners* as well as you blond sparkly eyed avatar….well i was basically imagining your voice belonging to a hyperactive uni student with a love of loli’s + japan. Your real voice is DEEP so like- now I imagine you as a bearded old dude that looks like a professor… :)

      • June 5, 2012 at 7:24 am2606

        You sounds like a grumpy old man. D:

      • June 5, 2012 at 3:52 pmStilts

        Alas, I am neither bearded nor grumpy (unless I’m at work, in which case I’m only not bearded). I’m more like a blonde version of Stephan Merchant.

        (SeishunOtoko is going to be after me even more now, isn’t he? >_<)

      • June 5, 2012 at 11:00 pmClick

        Blonde version of this guy, huh? I’m on to you, you sick son of a bitch.

    • June 6, 2012 at 3:29 am2606

      NOW I finally know why did a certain individual answered my n00b English question with a certain inappropriate answer. Hoh boy.

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:43 pmIntricateRadiance

    That’s okay. I love you all too. Seriously. <3

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:47 pmbertman4

    Awesome! Downloading now!

  • June 3, 2012 at 10:50 pmKikkun

    Stereoman’s a girl? lol sorry if you’re not (really sorry!!) but it’s kind of hard to tell with your voice.

    Listening to it now. You all sound like how I pretty much imagined. And you must hear it all the time Moomba (or maybe not because you live in the UK…) but that British accent. ♥

  • June 3, 2012 at 11:19 pmEx14

    MAy7be normalise the voices? It’s kinda annoying some people sound so soft…my hands constantly playing with the volume while hearing this.

  • June 3, 2012 at 11:22 pmFT5Havok

    I want to hear Divine !! :>

    • June 4, 2012 at 2:44 pmYangorang

      and Omni if he’s still around heh…

  • June 3, 2012 at 11:26 pmJhacks

    Niceeee!!!

  • June 3, 2012 at 11:28 pmJustinnnnnn

    It’s 4:00 am here after watching my Game of Thrones finale, but I’ll be glad to hear this after I get some sleep, Verdant. Nice to see this…That time index is a very nice touch too!

  • June 3, 2012 at 11:44 pmIntricateRadiance

    Yes, Zephyr, more people need to watch Sakamichi. ;3 Sad to see there was no mention of it. Oh, and I’d love to hear your thoughts on old shows too. Like past seasons/years and some of your all-time favourite anime series. :)

  • June 3, 2012 at 11:55 pmZen

    Wow that’s long! But good. I’m glad to see the site finally expanding beyond just simple blogging. Keep up the good work, guys!

    • June 4, 2012 at 1:34 amZen

      Edit: Just finished listening to the full version. I thought it was quite well done overall; all of you performed commendably, especially Verdant who did an exceptional job keeping things on track as the host. Hearing the voices of the writers really adds personality to the site- everyone who listens to the podcasts can now attach real, live human voices to the posts- breathing life and humanity into them in a way that digital text alone cannot…

    • June 4, 2012 at 11:46 pmverdant

      Thanks, I don’t think I really had to do much as the host though, the writers were really great by themselves already!

  • June 3, 2012 at 11:56 pmBabu

    Awesome podcast guys and girl ;p :D
    But Stereoman your voice is kinda gender-confusion :P

  • June 3, 2012 at 11:57 pmcow

    this sounds amazing.

  • June 4, 2012 at 12:02 amXziled

    its official, stereoman is our resident genderbender writer :D

    stilts which do you prefer? perverted or moe?

    other than that I’m loving this podcast idea and hope this will become a new trend in randomC

    • June 4, 2012 at 12:10 amXziled

      now the best next thing is to have some kind of physical representation in video format like stick figures or something

      • June 4, 2012 at 12:18 amXumbra

        Would you be interested in having a video podcast instead? That’s totally doable with G+ or a Skype premium account.

      • June 4, 2012 at 12:48 amXziled

        a video podcast would be cool but I think what we have right now is also a great addition to RandomC. the reason why I suggested a drawing representation of each writer was because I thought it would be an intrusion of personal privacy since not alot of people like having their actual faces appearing online unless its like some kind of social site like facebook.

        I brought up the drawing thing because on another podcast I saw the people talking using it in a hilarious and engaging way that kept peoples attention + you can add subtitles for those that have a hard time hearing or just couldn’t process what was being said. I personally had to rewind some parts of the podcast every once in awhile because I had a hard time understanding what was being said sometimes.

        all in all it was just a suggestion for future podcasts, and I think google+ would be better if you want a video podcast since its free while I think you have to pay for premium skype.

        or we can just throw everyone into tinychat. just my 2cents and sorry for the long comment

      • June 4, 2012 at 2:38 amBakaMochi

        The input is greatly appreciated! =D If you have any other feedback, please let us know!

      • June 5, 2012 at 10:45 pmkuro

        That would so cool. Like the OreImo commentary. Though perhaps, less animated lol. Since I don’t think the staff have so much experience with that.

  • June 4, 2012 at 12:12 amKnillinux

    Fantastic podcast guys! There are so few good anime podcasts these days that have such good discussions on current shows. You guys are all really pleasant to listen to – the podcast was very organized and well-paced, staying on track while also being tons of fun.

    I really hope this becomes a regular feature – it’s been years since I’ve heard an anime podcast about current shows that was this good!

    • June 4, 2012 at 12:33 amKnillinux

      Just heard the Nyaruko shout-out from Stilts. ^_^

      Yes, more people need to watch it! That show is hilarious!
      I don’t think I’ve seen so many great references in a single show since Lucky Star. xD

      • June 4, 2012 at 2:25 amStilts

        Agreed! I wanted to talk about it too, but alas, Acchi Kocchi has my top spot. I feel like Nyaruko is sorely underrated for it’s awesome romcom ridiculousness, so I had to muscle it in there somewhere : )

  • June 4, 2012 at 12:32 amMc-Taz

    It was fun to listen to this podcast. Nice to hear what everyone sounds like. Stilts’ mic was a little low though. It was very entertaining to hear everyone pick on him though! I guess he’s the resident moe/ecchi fan that everyone gets to tease. :) I’m surprised with all the talk of yuri that Saki – Side A wasn’t even mentioned. At least Stilts is covering that show too–go figure! Verdant did a good job of guiding the entire thing as well.

    A lot of the stuff I’m watching wasn’t talked about though, so maybe those shows will end up on the next podcast. I guess it makes sense since a few of them aren’t being covered on RC.

    • June 4, 2012 at 3:27 pmMoomba

      I’m not sure how we managed to neglect to mention it during the podcast! Funnily enough there were some short comments both before and after the recording that went along the lines of ‘Dammit Saki just released but we can’t watch it until we’re done with recording! QQ.’

  • June 4, 2012 at 12:34 am†Croos†

    I knew it! you guys were keeping a secret from me ( *3*) .

  • June 4, 2012 at 3:15 amMike F.

    I really enjoyed this podcast

  • June 4, 2012 at 4:25 amSpace Dreamer

    (v);,,;(v)

  • June 4, 2012 at 4:50 amSeishun Otoko

    Thanks for the shout out Stilts. Now I feel bad for not listening to the whole thing lol
    Interesting discussions and excellent first attempt but personally, I find the podcast a tad bit too long. The 86 minutes could have easily been split into 5 different podcasts and it would probably help in retaining listeners’ attention.
    tl;dl: WATCH IT! Just watch that damn anime XD

    • June 4, 2012 at 9:12 am†Croos†

      Lets not distract Stilts in IRC anymore, Seishun.
      I will only distract him when he calls/pokes me.

  • June 4, 2012 at 4:56 amstarss

    Woooooah….

  • June 4, 2012 at 5:07 amBob

    I personally prefer the podcast being long
    Good stuff should never end early
    XD

  • June 4, 2012 at 5:12 amMasterDragonKnight

    At the end of the podcasts, Divine should leave us with some words of wisdom, just like Io. ^^

  • June 4, 2012 at 5:26 amMrRei

    Takaii as shoe?!!

    • June 6, 2012 at 9:33 amD-LaN

      LMAO LOL MrREI!!!

      Actually, my first though is –> MAH RIGHT HAND!!! MAH POWERS OF KIIIIIINNNNGS!!!

  • June 4, 2012 at 5:29 amhaizaraa

    Fantastic theme, Moomba! Umm, could you please make a post with the full version?
    I’m loving it so much, I already downloaded it from the link you gave in IRC. I think others would love to hear the full version too!

    • June 4, 2012 at 4:34 pmMoomba

      A post on the subject somewhere in the future is a definite possibility, but for now, a link to where it can be downloaded has been added to this post!

      • June 5, 2012 at 12:22 amhaizaraa

        Yay! Thank you :3

  • June 4, 2012 at 5:44 amRoguespirit

    Perhaps not the best idea to release your first episode during E3 eh? Might take a while before some people(me) get to it.

  • June 4, 2012 at 6:06 amEunichi

    I thought there would be a mention of Sakamiichi mo Apollon because it’s direction is very good

  • June 4, 2012 at 6:53 ambelatkuro

    -Stereoman and Bakamochi are girls?! O.o
    -Verdant, Zephyr and Stilts’ voices make me gay :P Stilts gets a mention for DEEP voice.
    -Takaii was pretty silent most of the time lol
    -Dat accent for Moomba.

    Great podcast. Enjoyed it very much.
    Hope we see more of this in the future, next time with the other writers participating too.
    And Divine. I want to hear the divine voice :P

    • June 4, 2012 at 8:03 am†Croos†

      Divine makes people curios who *CENSORED* is.
      ONE OF RANDOMC UNLIMITED HIDDEN MYSTERIES

    • June 4, 2012 at 8:12 amIntricateRadiance

      I’m in love with Verdant’s voice. And I was surprised by Stereoman, too.

      Now we need to hear Divine and Enzo! >:D

      • June 5, 2012 at 12:25 amverdant

        Thanks for the kind words, we love you too!

    • June 4, 2012 at 2:45 pmStereoman

      We never said we weren’t girls :]

      • June 4, 2012 at 11:54 pmkuro

        I always had an inkling. But I think it’s your screen name that threw me and probably a few others off. :P

        I already knew Bakamochi and Cherrie were girls though.

      • June 6, 2012 at 2:19 amviss

        The thing is, people were caught of guard by the fact that Stereoman is actually Stereogirl lol. That’s all.

    • June 4, 2012 at 6:15 pmTakaii

      I was at work, trying to actually help customers :p

  • June 4, 2012 at 7:03 amahelo

    Kinda noticeable how you guys didn’t mention stuff like MGX, Sakamichi no Apollon and Sankarea since if you guys did watch more this season, I’m sure the favorites part of your podcast would be more — varied. Or maybe it’s just the lack of Enzo (since he seems to be watching everything).

    • June 4, 2012 at 11:03 amBakaMochi

      My fault! Originally I was going to discuss Sakamichi but I changed my mind to Jormungand after watching last week’s ep XP It might get a mention next podcast though so stay tuned!

  • June 4, 2012 at 8:49 am†Croos†

    Needs more music touch and this Podcast would be perfect. :3
    A little volumed and not distracting BGmusic while you guys talk just to make the atmosphere of the conversation rise a bit. Just make sure its fits the background of course.

    -Just my suggestion and feedback.

    • June 4, 2012 at 12:57 pmLord Shiiro

      Just gotta second this! A little light BG music would give this podcast a +1000 from me. As it is, the podcast is already A material as far as I’m concerned. :D

      Also, an intermission would be good at some point, for a minute or two. This is mostly because I would love to be introduced to some new music, but also because intermissions make the transitions between different segments clearer.

      Lastly, I love your voices, and hope that the other 7 bloggers will grace us with their voices! :D

      • June 4, 2012 at 1:00 pmLord Shiiro

        Missed something.

        It would be awesome if the podcast were like a bi-weekly thing. I’m really really really looking forward to the next one!!!

  • June 4, 2012 at 8:56 amNitro

    this is the kind of thing that makes me insanely regret not applying as a writer :(

  • June 4, 2012 at 9:11 amLightnDark

    Why Stereoman..

    /me cries in a corner filled with mushrooms
    /me cries on Moomba’s shoulder
    /me v0ids..nevermind

    Personally I would prefer a shorter version since not all of us have X amount of time to sit down and listen through the whole thing?

    Small issue but the timer on the player is in 61min 70min and so on so it is easier to use that instead of the 1:10 for 70mins, yes I’m lazy to do the conversion.

    Transcripts or a short summary is also a good addition.

    Frequency-wise probably 1-2 per season? 1 for midway (to discuss the developments) and 1 towards the end (to sum up the season), assuming the previews don’t already take up too much time.

    • June 4, 2012 at 9:14 amNitro

      but if it was shorter, it would probably defeat the point of a podcast…

  • June 4, 2012 at 9:56 amjoeshen

    Adjust the levels.

  • June 4, 2012 at 11:05 amRen

    Go Koko!!!
    It would be nice if you added some background music to the conversation.

  • June 4, 2012 at 12:43 pmSyaoran

    That was really enjooyable to listen to. I laughed considerably, I look forward to more of these.

  • June 4, 2012 at 3:03 pmRay Stanz

    Very nice, randc has become very active lately :)

  • June 4, 2012 at 3:06 pmQuikbeam

    I really enjoyed this podcasts, it was really well done. the writer’s voices were not quite how I had envisioned them. The only thing that really worries me is I seem to have a lot of opinions in common with stilts….

    • June 4, 2012 at 3:15 pmStilts

      Comrade! >:3

  • June 4, 2012 at 3:28 pmJustinnnnnn

    Well I finally finished hearing it all; had to take some breaks to get some things done over here…

    Nice podcast :) Hopefully this’ll be the beginning of something great. I’d like to leave some personal opinions regarding to the show now, if I may:

    -First off, just so it’s clear from the start, I like hearing about the analysis part. I like hearing why you guys think this or that is good. The more of this, the better. In other words, I like deep discussions of what makes something good, but keeping the casual tone too. Some jokes here and there are always welcome, this is a friendly conversation after all and I welcome that.
    -Adjusting levels, hehe. This is the first show and all of this is understandable, but the sooner you fix it, the better. For the record, I thought Zephyr‘s audio was the best, added with a clear English too (always thought you were a girl btw~). Tell ‘em which mic to buy, yo :) !!
    -While I’m at it, Takaii and Stilts also had the clearest English. I think that was the hardest in Stilt‘s case, given how his mic seemed more muted in comparison to the rest…Takaii, I also thought you had the best Japanese pronunciation, nicely done. As a listener, it’s a drag to have to pay extra attention to the speaker to understand him/her…There were times when I couldn’t even make out what show he/she was talking about :P So yeah, I don’t mean to be rude, but the clearer you all speak, the better for us :)

    I don’t know how the show’s regular schedule will be like, so I won’t comment on that now. On a more personal note, I’d like to hear some news in the industry, if possible. For example, this studio is working on this new project / that influential guy left x studio and joins/creates this / x movie/series being the top show in Japan charts…Simple stuff like that, and to hear your opinion on the matter. Just my 2 cents.

    I’ll eagerly await Podcast #2…Until then, wish you all awesome writers best of the best! And Stilts…Keep it up; your inputs and comments were the best; don’t let the haters bring you down (don’t know if you even have haters though :x …) !

      Why thank you!

      I was actually on little iPod earbuds since I was going through my iPad :/

        Speaking of which, tell the guy who was on Skype to log off while recording! XD

      • June 4, 2012 at 7:48 pmJustinnnnnn

        *head clicks in* Maybe the call was made via Skype…

  • June 4, 2012 at 3:40 pmJustinnnnnn

    -Also, very nice job hosting and sticking to the schedule, Verdant. Everyone listened to each other and there were very few moments in which you stumbled upon each other. This is a major feat considering the number of voices…

    Moment that did it for me:

    Verdant saying his favorite character of the season was Kerry/Mage Killer, and someone (Stilts?) replying Enzo was gonna kill me.

    LOL. Nicely done, nicely done.

    Yeah!

    mind if i ask is the header/banner(dont really know what it is called) on top featuring the personalization of the people in randomc or is it from some anime/game/manga?

    • June 4, 2012 at 5:57 pmJustinnnnnn

      If you mean the site’s banner, the one at the very top with many chibis, it’s the personalization of RandomC’s writers.

      If you mean this post’s banner/image, the image below “Mid-Spring 2012 Podcast”, that’ from an anime.

    • June 4, 2012 at 5:57 pmCherrie

      Each of the chibis correspond to one of the writers =) There was a contest on it not to long ago….http://randomc.net/2012/06/01/rc-contest-guess-that-chibi/

    • June 5, 2012 at 9:41 amecho

      ahh, yes. I was referring to the banner. Looks nice, I’ll wait to see the result for who is which character :)

  • June 4, 2012 at 7:07 pmghost013

    is this on Itunes?

  • June 4, 2012 at 7:36 pmislidox

    2 words: More Podcasts.

  • June 4, 2012 at 8:14 pmshamaticgrl

    Verdant- you forgot Marika knows how to cook too!

    Why is everyone tallking about Fate Zero! *cries* it’s too painful!

    • June 4, 2012 at 11:28 pmverdant

      But all she knows how to make is Pot-au-feu! Besides, I don’t need a girl to cook for me, haha

  • June 4, 2012 at 9:38 pmukato

    No homo but verdant’s voice is so sexy

  • June 5, 2012 at 2:56 amSlushiZ

    YAY great podcast guys-just my personal opinion but maybe you should consider breaking up these podcast into smaller ones. For example This podcast is brought to you by…*insert 2/3 writers* and we’ll be talking about the show’s we’re covering this season or w/e. Because if the podcast becomes more regular then people might like a short summary to know what they’re in for and if they would be interested/to make them interested.Also you won’t have to compromise on discussion depth which I was awesome here. Its a tad disorientating to associate 7 different voices to different people at once and it might be easier to coordinate with less people. Otherwise, sexy voices guys AND girls so thanks for letting us hear them :D

    This is a very well done podcast when consider this is the first time for RC. My congratulations to all of you RC writers and looking forward to listening to the next podcast.

  • June 5, 2012 at 8:04 amShugima

    It was very interesting podcast, I for myself really like following and listening too podcasts, certainly when it’s not only news but mostly opinions. Whereas this happened in this podcast, there wasn’t much discussion or conflict here, which I missed. Though you probably agree on the most points you guys mentioned, I hope that in future podcasts you guys won’t be afraid to discus some matters from two opposite views.

    Well, that’s my advice anyway, I seriously hope you go on with these podcasts.

    • June 5, 2012 at 9:06 amJustinnnnnn

      I’m with this guy :) !

  • June 5, 2012 at 10:02 amGodEmperor

    This podcast was really cool. looking forward to the continuation

  • June 5, 2012 at 12:15 pmFT5Havok

    Now I finally know that Stilts is a guy :3

    • June 5, 2012 at 3:45 pmStilts

      That’s what you get for trusting the gravatar :3 Didn’t you know that Char used to be a trap? A reverse one, but still!

  • June 5, 2012 at 4:40 pmleah

    Wow, its so weird to hear everyone’s voice! Very interesting…I really wasn’t expecting Stilts to sound so, well, low, lol! And I was really surprised that Moomba has a british accent. Although now it seems really obvious when I read his posts. Haha, now when I read all your blog posts, I hear them in your voices! I want to hear the other writers’ voices now :)
    This was a really good idea, and it was so much fun to hear all your opinions in your actual voices. You guys all rock, thanks so much for all the time you put into the blog!!

  • June 5, 2012 at 5:53 pmMaster of Perzpektiba

    Great Podcast everyone! It was fun hearing everyone’s voices, especially Stereoman’s, it was surprising for me to learn that Stereoman is a FEMALE!!! If Infinite Stratos were to be dubbed, Stereoman can voice Charlotte Dunois!!! Also the way everyone was talking it felt like I was listening to a dubbed version of “Sket Dance”, lol! I think Stereoman should change her gravatar to that of Stilts, it seems more appropriate and Stilts’ voice reminded me of “Chuu-San” from Sket Dance!:D I also think you should split the podcast into segments so people can just listen to whatever part of the podcast they want rather than listening to the whole thing. Hope you guys will continue this, and I hope to hear the other writer’s voices as well! And lastly your outro sounds like it came from this video! :3

  • June 5, 2012 at 7:15 pmkureejii

    podcast!!! This is so exciting! I really enjoyed listening to everyone’s opinion.

  • June 5, 2012 at 7:44 pminnerchihiro

    I enjoyed this guys! You all sound wonderful. I definitely like the retrospective style.
    My only suggestion would be to make it a bit shorter and to the point. It’ll enhance the responses as well too if you have a time limit. Good job writers!

  • June 5, 2012 at 8:50 pmChristopher

    when is the next release?

  • June 6, 2012 at 10:26 amD-LaN

    I still haven’t hear this yet.. (As of writing I am tking a break frm doing assignment) but my reaction –> IT’s (ALMOST) ALL LIES!! D: (In the Motoe twins voice)

    Defin. gonna watch it. With subs. When I am not rushing my h.work.

  • June 6, 2012 at 10:54 amKappa

    Verdant you sound like a host. No not a radio host but like a host club host.

    Not that I would know what that would sound like…

    Looking forward to more. Even if you weren’t talking about anime it’s just interesting to hear you guys’ voices and personalities off paper. Hopefully more writers join in next time. Interested in hearing them too.

    And yeah I prefer podcasts long despite what some have been saying. I listen to podcasts for train trips and stuff like that. They’re meant to be long! So keep at it.

    Suggestion. Perhaps instead of just retrospective looks you guys could also go into discussions such as things Stilts talks about in his corner. I also wonder how you would go about putting humour and anime together.

    You think this is going to be a biweekly or monthly thing or what?

  • June 6, 2012 at 12:21 pmverdant

    Thanks for the kind words everyone, we’ll definitely try to take your suggestions into account for our next podcast, which will hopefully come sometime either in late June or early July. Many thanks again for listening to us, and remember if you want to get to know us better, you can always talk to us on our IRC channel too!

  • June 6, 2012 at 11:42 pmfoshizzel

    Hell yeah more Mouretsu Pirates! I haven’t been as impressed since they kept up with Gruier and Grunhilde…those two girls kind of get annoying really fast for me, but they do bring some cute moments to the series and now with the recent episode around 23 introduced a crazy powerful spaceship xDD

    Eureka Seven Ao! YES BEST FREAKING OST EVER!! Three weeks until we get the first releases, but yeah I would say you might want to watch season one of Eureka but you might be able to watch season two without knowing to much? It definitely helps for those inside references. There are so many fun characters to enjoy like Fleur and Elena I just can’t help but laugh all the time whenever Elena makes some random anime comment, but Ao is great not the normal weak main character like Renton xD

    Tsuritama is soooo colorful! I loveeee it matched up against something like Smile Precure your eyes are raped by the colors in a good way lolol

    Accel world…OH MA FATTY! Just kidding…I hated the series at the start but it actually got a lot more fun with the recent episodes with the new “red king arc” because there are more mechs of course hooraaaay! But yeah Haru is kind of boring and dull to me…LOL Shu…

    YES!! Best characters from Kore wa zombie and Andy? HELL YES dem hole puns…

    Fav male for me Ayumu from Kore wa zombie and Fav female Elena from Eureka Seven Ao.

    Mix and Andy! YES! Or Mikono Kagura/Amata? Lots of good ones and Unoha with that other <3 LOL Marika and Kane? Hell yeah muhahahah~

    Best opening for me Haiyoure! Nyaruko-san! So addictive and crazy along with Eureka Seven AO! For ED I like Aquarion EVOL ED2 with Unoha singing <3 and of course Eureka Seven AO…oh damn I forgot about Dusk Maiden that opening song is amazing.

    Best OST = Eureka Seven AO and yes to Fairy Tail Osts! I have all three and they are easily the best and of course the main fairy tail theme.

    Fav animation is a tough one for me but I will go with Eureka Seven Ao! Gotta love Bones oh and yeah AKB0048 has some fantastic scenery porn ahahah

    HOORAAAYY! Great recording xD

  • June 13, 2012 at 10:28 amD-LaN

    Hmm…. Opinions huh.

    I’d say tht maaaaaybe you guys could mk something lk Zero Punctuation with subs or just produce a voice and sub will do.
