Episode 65 – Anime / Ai-Kon

Infinity +1: Powered by Geekdom House.

The only podcast that reads from right to left, it’s Infinity +1! This week Jason, Allison, and Kyle are joined by Jacques Labrie from Ai-Kon to talk about everything anime! The Question of the Week and a very special Conundrum are just around the corner from Allison’s first Sweetdiculous Award and a strange tale from the town of Riverdale.

Question of the Week: What is the weirdest anime you’ve ever watched and still enjoy?

Then in the second segment, the hosts and Jacques tackle a few different angles on the history of anime. From Studio Ghibli to Dragon Ball Z, anime has as much variety has any other form of animation. What are some of the harmful stereotypes associated with it, where does it shine and what are its pitfalls? You’ll have to listen to find out!

Sweetdiculous Award: Thor (2014) – From Marvel veteran Jason Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman, this reboot of the Thor series starts with a mysterious female figure having taken the mantel of Thor. You may have the 3-year-old spoiler spoiled for you by now, but Allison says this series is Sweetdiculous!
