The Truth Hurts…

Sad news, but true. It seems this may be the end for ANON (90% sure). It’s been a good run, 16 episodes, wish it could have been longer, but you can’t force something into being. Also we don’t want to throw out some crap at you guys (though at times it seemed like we did?). Maybe a bit of history is in order…?

First Sven and I started with the Anime and Television in Toronto podcast, just because we wanted in on the podcasting world, had pretty strong opinions on anime and television, and felt that people may have wanted to hear those opinions. Of course we had news and reviews which we of course transferred onto this podcast. Keeping fans up to date on info and giving insight on shows was something that we felt we could give to the community. It sort of became our hallmark. With over 2000 downloads, I personally think that ATTO did well, and made us proud. Hopefully there are those out there that agree with my opinion. Our last episode of ATTO was released in August of 2007, and funny enough I don’t really remember why. But the important thing is that in May of 2008, ATTO was somewhat resurrected as ANON.

The Anime Online podcast really is just ATTO, scrapping the television news/reviews. But we hoped to at least improve on our quality and a few other things as well. ATTO may have had more downloads, but it has been out for much longer. With around 500 downloads in such a short time, ANON has done just as well.

Most importantly though, is all the listeners and downloaders who have stuck with us for this long haul, even from ATTO. Huge thanks to Zetzuei for really keeping us motivated. Sometimes we even wonder whether people are listening or not, but an email from you always keeps us going.

Hopefully we have somewhat enriched a few lives (as if…lol), or maybe just entertained others. Thank you all for the 2+ years of support. Typing all this makes me feel like I’m writing a blog… hmmm not a bad idea… All the episodes will still be available for download for as long as possible. Was our existence just a minor blip in the inflated podcasting universe? Who knows…? Moving along, make sure to keep on watching all that good stuff, shout-outs to all the other podcasts out there: keep it alive!, and “minna arigato gozaimasu”!

P.S. Sven may or may not have his two cents in the coming days, but if not I think he shares the sentiments of above.

Difficulties, technical… etc.

An episode should have been out by now, but … it isn’t. Please bear with us, episode 17 will roll out soon. How soon, I’m not sure. Thank you all for your patience, rest assured we’re not dead (at least not yet). Hopefully you’ll all hear from us in the near future.

Tis the Season for Delays

So you all might have been wondering where the hell is Episode 15. Well, maybe not but with all the hype around it we thought we should give some feedback. Yes it has been delayed for one reason or another. A lot of things have happened lately and the Christmas season doesn’t help (supposed to be a happy and fun time?). Anywho fingers-crossed that Episode 15 will be out around Christmas time, hope that’s not too vague. It seems that a lot of other podcasts are taking their Christmas breaks as well, so at least we don’t feel as bad. So as promised Episode 15 will contain a review of an anime and also something special. That something will be a review of a manga, due the results of the poll (which is now closed FYI). I have a feeling that’s it’s going to be good, so stay tuned. In the meantime, get into the holiday spirit. If Christmas isn’t your thing, it’s still a good time to be with family and hang out with friends. Go outside!!! (Kind of hypocritical, but I’ll end my rant here). Keep on listening, and if you don’t hear from us before Christmas; happy holidays!!! ^_^

ANON Poll #1


If you’ve listened to Episode 13, then you’ll know what this poll is about. Of course you’ll have to cast your ballots before we do Episode 15, so you have about a month. Even so, don’t delay, cast your votes today! Be it Movie + Anime, Manga + Anime, or just Anime (don’t vote for this one, it’s boring, therefore it won’t win).
