Episode 1: Understandable Skepticism
The premiere episode! This is the first of two roundtable discussions looking back at anime on Canadian TV, musing about some missed opportunities, and speculating about what the future may hold.
00:00 - Introductions
02:40 - Some fond reflections of anime on Canadian broadcasters. Some appreciation of Witch Hunter Robin, weird movies on SPACE, and lots of Sailor Moon.
37:00 - Some of the biggest missed opportunities. and many tears shed for CHUM.
55:55 - Hopes or expectations for the future of anime on TV. Quite a bit of skepticism, but maybe there's hope for Attack on Titan and Sailor Moon?
