Anime! Manga! Conventions! Fandom! Reviews! News! Editorials! Seasonal Preview Guides! Classics!

The Reverse Thieves look at so much anime and manga that it can’t be contained within a single podcast. Join Kate and Alain as they discuss everything from what they just watched to what is going on in fandom.

SWAT (Seasonal Watching Anime Taskforce) Reviews: A look at the first episode of the best (and sometimes worst) anime of the new season.

Case Closed Reviews: A final wrap-up of the anime we finished this season. Did they knock it out of the park or crash and burn?

The Speakeasy: What we've been watching, reading, and playing, plus a look into the news from the last month.

Rewatch Podcasts: We go back and watch a classic show to see if it lives up to our memories.

Dec 17, 2012

As is tradition, for our final episode of 2012 we look back on the news and licenses for the year. It is always nice to reflect on what was the most important trends and new pieces from the year now that we have a little distance. Certain things that seem so bloody important when they first happen can fade wordlessly into the woodwork just as easily as some minor points turn out to be monumental in reflection. It is also a great to be thankful for what titles we get. This is always a nice way to round out the year so we can go into 2013 hoping for the best.

I hope to see everyone for another year of podcasts as The Speakeasy enters its third year with a new opening and closing. Until then: Cheers!
