#63 - Super KonMari-o Bros. 2 - A Review of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

#63 - Super KonMari-o Bros. 2 - A Review of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

February 16, 2019

Back in Episode 44, Sully, Bill, and Austin discussed the Konmari method of tidying up. Since then, Marie Kondo has become an online sensation with her recent Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo that released in January. In this episode, we take a look at her new show and reevaluate our thoughts on her method and how to apply it to anime/nerd fandom. We also answer twitter questions, both related and unrelated!

Note: This episode was recorded BEFORE Kingdom Hearts III was released so Austin gushes a bit about his anticipation for it in the catch up segment. Look out for the next episode to get his brief thoughts on the game, and look forward to a special bonus episode dedicated completely to Kingdom Hearts III sometime in the near future. 

The theme music this week is the opening song from Cheers. Listen and you'll know why. 

Have you seen Tidying Up with Marie Kondo yet? Are you a fan of her method? Not a fan? Tell us about your tidying adventures over on twitter www.twitter.com/TI_Anime or in our Facebook community, www.facebook.com/groups/thirdimpactanimecommunity

#62 - Interview with Tiffany Grant (Voice of Asuka in Neon Genesis Evangelion)

#62 - Interview with Tiffany Grant (Voice of Asuka in Neon Genesis Evangelion)

January 30, 2019

We are so excited to share with you all our interview with the legendary, the iconic, the incomparable Tiffany Grant!

You may know Tiffany from her performances in innumerable ADV Films and Sentai Filmworks dubs, including her most iconic role as Asuka Langley Soryu/Shikinami in Neon Genesis Evangelion and the Rebuild of Evangelion films. Tiffany was kind enough to give us some of her time to pick her brain about voice acting, how anime dubs/conventions have changed over time, what Evangelion means to her, and what happened with the original 3.0 dub. 

If you'd like to connect with Tiffany online, check out her official fan club: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2405597801/

Also, most importantly, since Netflix is bringing back Neon Genesis Evangelion with a brand-new english dub this year, definitely sign the petition for them to bring back the original cast to reprise their roles! Also, please share it with your friends, @ Netflix, and include the hashtag #TiffanyIsAsuka

Petition link: https://www.change.org/p/netflix-netflix-use-the-original-voice-actors-for-evangelion-re-dub

Special thanks again to Tiffany for coming on the show! This will not be our only NGE related podcast coming this year. Look out for many more!
