#74 - Pride Month Special! Localizing LGBTQ Anime with David Wald

June 25, 2019

To celebrate Pride month, Sully sat down with voice actor, script writer, and ADR director David Wald to discuss his work in working to dub and license LGBTQ themed anime, including Love Stage!! and Hitorijime My Hero

David is known for voicing Gajeel Refox in Fairy Tail, Bulat in Akame ga Kill!, Berg Katze in Gatchaman Crowds, and Tetsutetsu in My Hero Academia, and has been the ADR director for Love Stage!!, Hitorijime My Hero, Kokkoku, Bloom Into You, and the upcoming dub of Cutie Honey Universe.

In this episode, David discusses pushing to get more queer anime into the West, the place that LGBTQ fans have in the anime community, and introducing anime to a wider audience. Sully and David also talk about how anime can play an important role in the coming out narratives of LGBTQ fans.

Note: Due to connection issues, there are some drop outs on David's end from the mid point until the end of the podcast. Austin tried to edit around them the best he could but unfortunately, the sound quality is not the best.

#73 - Con-flicts Vol. 2: Animazement 2019

#73 - Con-flicts Vol. 2: Animazement 2019

June 18, 2019

So while some jerks were in Atlanta on Memorial Day weekend, the rest of us were in Raleigh for Animazement! The con brought us out as Featured Panelists, doing what we do best: talk way too much about Japanese cartoons.

We had a total of 24 hours of content to provide over the weekend, some new, some old. As we’ve never really talked in-depth about our panels on the podcast, we break all of them down in this Dynamaxed episode of the Third Impact Anime Podcast. If you missed Animazement, or are still feeling those post-con blues, this podcast will transport you right to the halls of the Raleigh Convention Center, that’s the Third Impact Anime Guarantee™.

#71 - Interview with Linda Young (Voice of Frieza in Dragon Ball Z)

June 2, 2019

Last weekend, at Animazement in Raleigh, NC, Sully got the chance to sit down with voice actor Linda Young, most famous for her iconic portrayal of the evil Frieza in the first Funimation dub of Dragon Ball Z!

Besides Frieza, Linda has a long history of acting and voice work, from stage and commercials, to other anime roles. Notably she can be heard as Genkai in the dub of Yu Yu Hakusho, and the land lady in Double Decker.

Huge thanks to Linda for coming on the show, and to Animazement for making this possible!
