The Speakeasy #055: GTO, So You Want to Run a Panel

July 28, 2014
Drink #055: GTO
So You Want to Run a Panel

We talk in-depth about panel preparations thanks to us being fully immersed in our own panels for upcoming Otakon 2014. We tackle the topic from many angles starting with the decision to run a panel, then on to submitting to a convention, then of course to the intense creation of the presentation. At the end, we also talk about troubleshooting and worst case scenarios. We hope this will be a helpful guide, but we are still learning a lot about doing panels ourselves!


And now your helpful bartenders at The Speakeasy present your drink:


  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz rum
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz Southern Comfort® peach liqueur
  • 4 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz amaretto almond liqueur
  • 1 oz grenadine syrup

Mix all ingredients in tin over ice. Strain into shot glasses and enjoy!

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA 2wei! #003: Dark Side of the Illya

July 25, 2014

hisui_icon_4040 So this episode seemed to determined to make sure someone finished their anime fetish bingo with a single episode. If your card has BDSM, incest, lolicon, yuri, and non-con all in a row then you were probably a winner. Or a loser.It all depends on how you want to play it off. I don’t want to beat a dead horse but there was a distinct squick factor to the first season but it was all the same level of squick that was in the manga. That one OVA chapter was pretty horrible but such are OVAs for a show like this. While nothing this season has fully reached the depths of depravity of that hell-scape they seem to be making already sort of questionable scenes in the manga even more intense.

To have some positivity I will say that this, the end card has set the bar insanely high. I feel like all the other end cards are now just competing for second place. 70’s shoujo Shiro is probably the best part of the whole affair.
