Episode 30: Theories on Crunchyroll-Funimation debacle
We're now on our 30th Episode! Thank you very much for listening all the way. I've got Anime Corner Philippines' Marlo Barcellano to talk about the possible impacts (if there are any) of the dissolution of the Crunchyroll-Funimation partnership. (This segment has been edited for clarity after we experienced technical issues beyond my control.) This also includes a brief chat with Sofia Abigaile Sanches, Student Category Winner of the 2018 Nihongo Speech Contest as we look forward to this year's contest (I've featured her on the online journal). It's just a few weeks before Otakufest 2019 in Cebu, and I'm looking forward to see you all there alright.

Episode 29: Meidolls Cafe, revisited
As part of my 10th year in the anime/cosplay circle, I'm bringing back an old recording from 2011. Meidolls Cafe was then the first maid/cosplay cafe outside of anime/cosplay events, and when the recording was done, they were at one corner inside Saunterfield Building in Cainta. After a month, they were able to move to a noticeable space in the same building, until they stopped operations around a year after. More on this story from Reuters in 2011: https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-philippines-maid-cafe/customers-pampered-at-manilas-first-maid-cafe-idUSLNE71602620110207
