Podcast Plug: Gainax Invasion

No news or wall-of-text column right now, just a quick plug for a podcast I appeared in, over on wildarmsheero’s inimitable Mistakes of Youth site.


Topics discussed include, but are not limited to, the time that Antony and I assaulted Gainax headquarters twice in one day. I’ll give that story a proper writeup someday, but in the meantime, here is some oral history of otaku insanity for you.

Tokyo Teleport Station: On the Viability of Manga Cafes in North America

Me again, returning to my roots with a fresh TTS post! The rest can be found here, for those of you playing along at home. It’s true, I have actually written for HD before, back in the cretaceous period. This is how I’ve managed to sneak into Shingo’s web site without him being around.

Speaking of not being Shingo, I want to make it clear up front that unlike some people I could mention, I am not in Japan. I have been, in the past, and will be in the future, but for the moment I remain in exile. Previously in Boston, I just very recently migrated west and found myself in San Francisco. As much as I loved being in Boston (Cambridge, anyway, and if you’re in the area please do show some love to the Tokyo Kid) I absolutely love being in San Francisco. The food is good, the weather is actually quite pleasant (which is to say NOT shoving sunshine and triple-digit temperatures in my face all the time) and the “Japan Town” is nothing short of glorious.
