Hey fellow Toku fans. Just so you know, me and my best friend run an ever-more-popular College Comedy/Talk Radio Show. This coming week, on Thursday 12/15/11, we'll be having our yearly Christmas special. We'll have special guests, song premiers, and a super-secret celebrity interview!

Throw us your support and tune in from 9-12 this Thursday, at our official website:
And hey, while you're there, join the Cool Side Army!

After a long debate with myself, I've decided to go ahead with a new web series on youtube. The web series will be a weekly news/review style show featuring toku, anime, and Japan news that catches my interest. Once a month I plan on doing a focus episode on one such Toku/anime show, where I will be inviting guests that are far removed from the fandom (and guest from the fandom) where available. Stay tuned for more on that!
