12 Days of Anime Christmas: Day 12
December 25, 2011 1 Comment
I was not always a blog writer/host of Anime Afterlife Podcast. I started off as a measly guest on episode 2 with Gabe. Later on, I made my second appearance as a guest on episode 10 with Jose. And soon after that I became something of a regular on the podcast. I had become a regular not only on the podcasts but also on the daily Skype calls. I was around so much that by the end of the winter season earlier this year, Dave allowed me to become a blog writer for Anime Afterlife Podcast where my first post(aside from my introduction post) was my Spring 2011 impressions post. It was a short while later where Dave not only made me a co-host for the regular show, but allowed me to start up my own side show, Anime Movie Friday. And the rest is history. This is my favorite thing from this past year. Being able to talk to Dave, Vensito, King, Gabe, Zekana and Richard about anime on almost a daily basis(because when they aren’t talking about anime they are talking about Marvel vs. Capcom or whatever other
shitty button masher fighting game they play) is some of the most fun I’ve had this past year. Whether it be Gabe and Ven arguing over some marginally dumbass topic that truly has no right or wrong answer or just listening to the bunch of them rag on each other about what they like/dislike and their opinions on anime, it just never gets old. So if I have never said this before, I will say it now: Thank you to all of my co-hosts and fellow blog writers Dave, Ven, King, Gabe, Zekana and Richard for one, allowing me to be apart of everything that goes on here at Anime Afterlife Podcast and giving me a medium in which I can spout everything from my distaste for Sunrise to my love for everything Kimi ni Todoke and Kotomi, but also just being great friends. You may not know this, but you guys truly do have an influence on not only what I watch, but how I watch anime. If it wasn’t for you guys I wouldn’t be the anime otaku I am today. So here’s to hoping for a great year in anime in 2012 and another great year for Anime Afterlife Podcast(hopefully with more podcasts).
