Show #27 Live from Otakon 2006
Music in this episode: "Time is Running Out" by Muse. "Yatta" by Green Leaves, "It's My Life" by Bon Jovi, who is weirdly not dead yet, and "Cell Block Tango" from the musical Chicago.
The Muse and Bon Jovi are brought on by two AMVs from the contest that were pretty good. Yatta is included because of some guy in Artist's Alley performing the yatta dance. Also be sure to check out the lyrics translation in this AMV.
Soar is from the Randomization Podcast:
Weekly Anime Review (on hiatus, but sometimes new episodes anyway)
I start right off the bat comparing Otakon to AX. Answerman did the same this week in his column.
Guy dressed as Harlock every year since 2003:
New Harlock I saw this year! (After this recording.)
Soar talks about the FMA movie, which is getting a theatrical release later this year.
Noah's assertion that the filler will end on episode 225 is a 4chan rumor that should be disregarded (not that Noah hangs out at 4Chan... necessarily). Noah and I are on episode 179.
Amychan visited Dan Kim of the Manga Clone Army webcomic, Nana's Everyday Life

- "...with a giant L on his shirt"
Notice, Noah is hotlinking to images like some kind of myspace user!
Daryl compared Otakon to the 1979 film, "The Jerk" starring Steve Martin.
Dave and Joel's Fast Karate for the Gentlemen
(Update: we officially love Fast Karate, our eternal allies, and in our eyes they can do no wrong. _However_ their promo might be a little explicit (not that there's anything wrong with that), and we here at NC just want the parents of the various 5th/6th/7th graders who listen to this podcast to realize that, uh, we're sorry. Mostly we had to join them in warning the world about Koi Kaze, a series about incest that passes itself off as a romance.
My badass Nausicaa gas mask:
No, it's not from "Desert Punk":
Me as Takami from Host Club:
I have a badass anime-cons.com T-shirt which says "Con Whore" on it. I got from Patrick D (pdelahanty).
Daryl Can't Stop Talking!
