Oldtaku no Radio # 003.5 – Au Revoir Autumn 2016, Bonjour Winter 2017

We were planning on lightly touching on the saving graces and disappointments of the Fall 2016 anime season before talking about Moribito for our official fourth episode, but with so many titles to comment on, we ran a little long. After noticing the clock, we decided tack on our thoughts on which Winter 2017 anime we are looking forward to and recorded the whole thing as a separate podcast. Much silliness, including some dramatic readings of plot synopses, ensued, and much fun was had. We hope you enjoy this Oldtaku no Radio b-side, and make sure to come back for our regularly scheduled episode on the 11th!

  • Jared Nelson's profile

    Jared discovered anime in the early 1990s through stacks of third-hand fandubs and Streamline Pictures tapes. By the tender age of 16, he was humming Macross 7 songs in art class, dreaming of Asuka Langley and hanging Rurouni Kenshin posters on his wall. A few years later he moved to Japan where he worked as an ALT (assistant language teacher) in Ibaraki and Fukuoka Prefectures. While he returned home with a deep appreciation for Japan, its culture, and its public transit system, Jared fell out of anime fandom and only returned in 2010. A self-proclaimed 3rd-level bard, Jared enjoys tabletop gaming and game design, video gaming, giant robots, history, comics, and most recently manga. He is also eternally late to the party.
