Otaku, No Video Podcast Episode 6
The first nine minutes of episode 6 of the podcast Otaku, No Video. Check out: http://brentnewhall.com/otaku_no_video/ to hear the entire thing in higher quality, our other episodes and don't forget to check out the forum!
We discuss Studio Ghibli's diversification of directors, the debacle of Youka Nitta's tracing of existing photographs (not worth quitting manga over, we agree), Viz reviewing aspiring artists' portfolios at the next Comic-Con (and the oddity of Viz doing this, considering their primarily Shonen Jump stable), the difficulty of translating Japanese to English, our preferences for translation of attack names and such, the unfortunate online petition asking that Final Fantasy XIII not be released on the X-Box 360, and the current video game console market (including the PS3's problems). Plus, our thoughts on Gundam 00, and Brent's reaction to the first episode of Touch.
