Pre-Otakon 2019 Podcast

hisui_icon_4040_round Much like Junk Dog, the Speakeasy podcast is not quite dead yet. While it is on hiatus for most of 2019 I felt it wrong to not do a pre-Otakon podcast.

If I am known for anything it is as the dude who REALLY likes Type-Moon which truth be told is a fairly reasonable reputation. That said my closest friend will tell you I have an extreme fondness for Rumiko Takahashi. Her work was some of my first expose to anime, it was her series that seriously got me into fandom, and Maison Ikkoku is still my favorite manga.
