Podcast Special Feature: Q&A with a real Voice Actor (Ft. Brian Beacock)
You may know him better as Agumon (Digimon), Renzo Shima (Blue Exorcist), Ail (Sailor Moon R), Sakon and Ukon (Naruto), or even Lloyd from Tales of Symphonia. but Brian Beacock is his name. He came to town this past weekend for Superior Con—a small anime/video game/comic book convention that takes place at one of the local universities.  He spoke for close to an hour offering insight into the world of acting and voice over. It was a good presentation. I can share the whole thing if you all are interested, but here is a brief intro, and the Q&A session from the end of the presentation.

First, Derek explains why shouldn't get too excited yet about the One Punch Man Season 2 announcement trailer.

A Theory as to Why Darling in the FranXX was a Narrative Mess

Lastly, in a segment inspired by some recent discussion on the blog, Derek outlines a narrative about the production of Darling in the FranXX that may very well be more interesting than the story of DarliFra itself.

First, we'll take a look at Yahoo's numbers on the "most searched" anime during the first half of the year. Then, it's Attack on Titan, Overlord III, and Steins;Gate 0 in the Week In Review. Lastly, should a studio strive to remain as faithful as possible to the source material it's adapting, or should they have the freedom to make changes? If so, what kind?

Then it's the weekly recaps of Megalo Box, Steins;Gate 0, and Darling in the FranXX. Oh, also more talk of Steins;Gate bewbs, but no one watches anime for that, right?
