Some Unnamed Anime Podcast Episode 12: Leek’s Seiyuu Talk and Book Club

After a little chat between me and Uki on twitter, I threw together a few topics for us to cover to get back on the topic of seiyuu. It’s been awhile since we’ve had an episode where I really lectured, so I’m back to lecture once again.

On the wings of Yukari Tamura retirement rumors and Akio Ootsuka’s first publication, “Seiyuu Damashi”, I round up Uki to talk a little more on the seiyuu world. But instead of talking about the fluff, we bring a bit more reality into the equation this time. This episode does feature explicit language, as always.
