Animecast: Rulers of Anime


It’s time for another jam-packed discussional Animecast! Kicking things off, we talk about some news regarding Funimation and Pony Canyon. Following the news, we answer tons of great community questions about pronunciations, importing, second chances, visual novels, and being the king of anime! After everything, we discuss a bit about the Winter 2015 season before moving on into a spoiler discussion about episode 1 of Aldnoah Zero Season 2.
