The Speakeasy: The main podcast where we discuss what we’ve been watching, reading, and playing, plus occasional other topics.

Feb 20, 2012

For our after Valentine's Day podcast we decided to go with a twist on the normal February topic. While we look at relationships in anime we examine couples in series where they are not the key focus. There is often romance in all genres of anime and we look at some of our favorites. A bit of warning in the fact that to speak about most of these relationships we have to spoil most of the series we talk about. Therefore be warned that we discuss BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, Spirited Away, Cardcaptor Sakura, Planetes, Hayate the Combat Butler, Here is Greenwood, Crest of the Stars, and Princess Tutu in part 1. And in Part 2 we discuss Gundam Seed, Eureka Seven, Gundam X, Turn A Gundam, The Vision of Escaflowne, RahXephon, and the Macross series. We ask the audience many questions so feel free to answer them in the comments.

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


  • 1 oz lemon vodka
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1 candy lemonhead
  • 1 tsp sugar


Wet the rim of the 2-oz shot glass with lemon juice and put sugar around the rim. Pour lemon juice in the glass with the vodka. Next drop a Lemonhead candy in and wait a few seconds. Lick the sugar around the rim, shoot the shot down fast. Don`t swallow the Lemonhead, but instead suck on it after swallowing the shot.
