This Episode OP/EP: [No Game, No Life] This Game by Sapphire
The Summer 2015 Anime Season has begun! What shows are worth starting? What shows are nothing but unnecessary moeblob? We're here to tell you! We give our first impressions on this seasons best shows thus far! Are you ready?
After a long 3 months of preparation, and only a heart attack's worth of stress, it's finally here...the Anime Summit Podcast
Welcome, boys and girls, Onii-chans and Onee-san!
Three months ago I started putting together this podcast project. After some bumpy starts I recorded multiple practice sessions alone, and pitched them out to members of the /r/anime community. I got lots of good feedback, but finding co-hosts was difficult. Eventually I wrangled in 3 such co-hosts and we got to recording more practices. At one point, we were recording 2 practice sessions a week as we upgraded our equipment and got more familiar with our software, and each other.
We managed to get a hold of some very talented artists and designers to give us our amazing Mascot character seen below. We still don't have a name for her, but I think we may go with Kaylee-chan. Tell us what you think in the comments!
Learn the tropes our hosts like and those that really grind our gears, oh and K-On! University Confirmed!

Our hosts explain how they rate shows, and what numbers mean what to them. On top of that, they also discuss the merits of gore in shows, and what genres they've grown to love!
