The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 42

Heather is back! And this time we teamed up to bring you our report on all the cool vintage anime-related panels we went to at AnimeFest 2016–which were surprisingly a lot! Hear us talk about seeing the iconic seiyuu for Lum & Ataru, getting to watch Akemi Takada paint in person, and how Heather is definitely not responsible for anyone’s sanity if they watch Shoujo Tsubaki.
