Podcast Episode #0070

Episode #0070 of the podcast is available for download! This week, in response to… uhh… responses… that our video from Episode #0068 received, we took a look at fandom, itself. What about the Japanese version flat-out offends some of today’s fans? What would drive these people to such anger? We examined their placement (or displacement, if you will) in relation to the show and other fans, which eventually leads us into FUNimation’s treatment of the show (and their inability to decide whether or not today it should be viewed as “nostalgia” or “new hotness”). Definitely check it out.

Episode #0070! VegettoEX, Meri, and Julian discuss today’s fans with regards to the series and the way they view it (both the Japanese version and the English version, in relation to their [dis]placement)… the way FUNimation treats the property (is it “nostalgia” or “new hotness”?)… and more. Our conversation touches upon ideas that cross generations of fans, and moves into an interesting Q&A e-mail session with quite the amusing “fan”.
