If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on an APB drop us a line via email or Twitter.
- Less Than Zero
Andrew proves himself to be to be a true die hard Macross fan as he defends the often infamous Macross Zero. That is hardly the popular opinion in the Macross fandom. Will we ever see a podcast trying to defend Macross II? Only time will tell. Also on the comedy front.
- Hayate Update!
Kenjirou Hata recently mentioned that his hiatus is not due to illness or exhaustion. I was a bit worried about him so I am glad to see he is doing well. Hata also recently mentioned that Hayate the Combat Butler is about 60% complete. It is always a mixture of happiness and sadness when something you love is over. You are sad to see the title end but you look forward to seeing what they do next.
- Like a Zombie Wizard Who Also Knows Kung-fu They are Back!
After a long hiatus the Ani-Gamers are back. They have a review of the Lychee Light Club and look at the Floating Ink panel and Anime Next 2011. Glad to see those guys back in the game and producing content.
- I Was Made in England
Another resurrection comes in the form on a revival of the UK Anime Network podcast. At first they discuss what they have been watching and what is new on the site. Then they discuss the fall of Bandai Entertainment and Beez Entertainment.
- Enter the Rave Master
The Fast Karate Gentlemen look at the Lensman anime. They of course bring the standard Fast Karate random train of though to the review. But that is always what makes it so wonderful.
- What People Say They Want, What People Think They Want, and What They Actually Want
The common cry amount anime fans is that they should make more anime with a mass market appeal. But the question is does anyone really know what that is and would they really want it. Carl tries to warn people that they should be careful what they wish for.
- Just How Big IS One Piece?
This info-graphic puts it in simple terms.
- Long-lost Animated Version of The Hobbit
We all love the animated version of The Hobbit from the 1970’s (and if you don’t, I don’t care about you). But an insane story emerged just recently about the first ever version that was made in 1966 but was never public. It was done in just one month and was pretty much a shady cash grab. If you’ve watched TV cartoons from the 60’s, the style should look immediately familiar to you.
- Kickstarter Campaign Reaches Goal in Just 2 Days for Tezuka’s Barbara
DMP’s fundraising to re-release Swallowing the Earth worked so well they are trying it again with another Tezuka work, Barbara. In just two days the $6500 goal was reached, that is an incredible turn around! Perhaps this will be the future of niche manga releases in the U.S.
- DC Comics Getting a New Logo?
This logo makes me sad, it is really nothing special or iconic in any way.
The one true pairing involving Hinagiku:
