KissAnime shutdown, and MORE Virtual Youtubers: September 2020 Podcast Update

  • Podcast

It’s that month again where I grow up a year older! How time flies. Now for the monthly podcast update:

Japan’s Crackdown on Piracy Sites: What now? (September 07)

The Crackdown on Piracy Sites has just started as KissAnime is taken down, leaving the highly-visited website no choice but to say goodbye for good. This puts anime fans who are currently watching by season on a rush to find alternatives.

On this discussion, we round up what’s happening with the anime community and what can the industry’s producers do to spread the anime culture in amenable ways. Joining me are photographer Donnie Medina of Chiisu Studio, Geoffrey Kutsukawa, and Anime Corner’s Marlo Barcellano.

Quarantine Food Special! (September 24)

Serena of The Lily Cat joins me once again – this time, we talked about the food we ate to survive this quarantine period. This is a special Quarantine Food episode featuring our recommended de lata food. Yep.

MORE Virtual YouTubers (September 28)

It’s my birthday last week, and what a way to celebrate it than to talk about MORE Virtual YouTubers.

I have with me JM Melegrito of Anime Pilipinas, Sky-desu and Kurt (Kurumeme), my fellow VTuber fans, to talk about their discoveries as well as why gatekeeping exists in the community. Of course, we won’t leave the latest plethora of news go unmentioned.
