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. Thankfully I was able to get Carl from Ogiue Maniax and Patz from The Cockpit to be on the podcast so I had someone to bounce off of preventing this from being utterly lame. We mostly talk about our plans for the convention as well as some guests and events you might want to check out. I’m still not sure what I’m doing podcast wise for Otakon proper but I have some ideas. Keep your eyes on the web page for further news.
This Saturday post is the weekly Type-Moon news in addition to the regular APB post on Sunday. If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on the Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup drop me a line via email or Twitter.

I’m going to talk about my impression of Rumiko Takahashi’s newest manga MAO in a bit but if you would indulge me I want to give everyone a bit of context. 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. So anything Rumiko Takahashi is rather personal to me.
