Hey guys and gals,
Here are just a few of the shows we have posted on the podcast feed. We had a few interviews with new up and coming artists and writers, here are the shows:
Our first interview showcases Molby Jean of Comanga LLC. We had an awesome time doing with interview. Our second interview with Molby is just around the corner. Keep an eye out for some of the content coming out from Comanga LLC.
The second interview features Issac Shapro and Scott Ferguson. In the interview, we talk about how much we love anime and manga while also some of the ridiculous nature of the art form. We here at Otaku American are scheduling a follow up with those guys soon.
Last but not least, we have our interview with Jerome Walford of Nowhere Man by Forward Comix. We have run into each other for quite sometime, but not until now have we done a interview. We here are looking forward to what comes out of Forward Comix in the near future.
So, that’s just an update of some of the shows we have just released. As always, For Otaku By Otaku thanks for reading, listening, and soon watching.
Why I have changed my mind?
OK, initially I was pretty cold on seeing the new Deadpool movie. First of all, I’m not the biggest deadpool fan growing up. Honestly, I thought deadpool is a bit over the top for my liking. Yes, he’s an assassin and I like those type of characters, but his persona is just a tad too much sarcasm for me.
So, the picking Ryan Reynolds was the obvious choice. Based upon the sarcastic nature of Reynolds it seemed like a cop out on Marvel/Disney side, I mean he is basically playing Van Wilder again. However, as the movie release date draws near and I’m being bombarded with their marketing. I have actually took the time to see the two trailers that have been released. So, I’m pleasantly surprised to see a bit more origin and maybe a little (and I do mean a little less of Reynolds sarcasm). That’s a good thing, don’t get me wrong I loved Van Wilder back when it came out back in 2002. But, I’m a bit older now and I have out grown that humor (not entirely lol). Now, if they cast a different actor I might……..better yet I would be more open to it.
Also, the movie will be released Feb 12th. Yes, Valentine’s Day weekend I’m sure it would do well regardless, but seems like it is trying too hard to be a date movie which it’s not in my opinion. Maybe that is just the tone they are going for. Unfortunately, It’s not all bad, I did like the cameo of Colossus and the other X-Man. In the end, I will go and see this movie but I will still be a bit cautious nonetheless.
So, we have the Eric Dean Seaton interview up for your listening pleasure. We ran into Mr. Seaton while at C2E2, also BigL and I talk a little about his book, “The Legend of Mantamaji” and how we felt about it. Check out that show here. We are thinking about doing a spin off of OA dealing with sports. When we say sports we don’t mean we talk about sports in American. No, we talk about those and other cultures sports (cricket, 9-man, Rugby, etc.). Along with anime sports ( e.g Kuroko’s No Basket, Ace of the Diamond, Baby Steps, and so on), We are really stoked about this addition to the family. So, keep an eye out for these projects and more of our C2E2 and other shows.
For Otaku By Otaku

Mykey Fresh here and this is the first of our C2E2 coverage, we have a few interviews coming out. On a personal note, I really enjoyed C2E2. We met some really awesome people, the city of Chicago was great to a couple of Jersey guys. I definitely have to make a trip out there to really get to know the city.

Starting today we have began recording new episodes together, due to the work being done here we had to record Roundtables and Solo Acts. But we are back together, these shows will be posted before C2E2. Now speaking of C2E2, I for one can’t wait to get over there. If anyone else is going hit us up
