Show #50 - Even the Answerman is Wrong Sometimes
Show #050 Direct Download:

Show 50 is also available in a lower quality format (in case you have a Nano or something) follow the link and add "LQ" to the end of the filename. It sounds much better as a 30 MB file, trust me.

"Even the Answerman is Wrong Sometimes" is based on a Japanese saying "Even a monkey falls out of a tree sometimes!"



We've been traveling a lot this year:

- Japan
- Michigan (twice)
- Boston (a bunch of times)
- roadtrip across America
- L.A. (twice)
- Baltimore
- San Diego
- Cedar Point
- Atlanta
- Erin commutes to Connecticut 4 days a week.

We've been watching:
- Nana anime & (manga)
- Le Chevalier d'Eon the anime as opposed to the manga. We love Chevalier and have to do a response to Dave & Joel's review.
- Claymore
- Toppa Ten Gurren-Lagann (probably the breakout hit of the season)

Misc.
- Buy Otaku USA issue 2!
- Jason Thompson wrote The Complete Guide to Manga, available this October.
- Thompson also does a webcomic/doujin called "King of RPGs",
- Thompson used the "Yakfist" example. Sadly, "Yakfist" does not exist! (Yet.)
- You can listen to 100 manga magazines in 60 minutes on the Mangacast
- Shaenon Garrity writes Narbonic and the Overlooked Manga Festival
- Speaking of "Yakfist", the movie "Zebraman" was really awesome!
- We recently watched Ratatouille (Recommended)

Japanese Lesson for this episode:
- Hisashiburi da ne? (Long time no see! Or, it's been a while! What every badass says to the hero from off-camera before making a big entrance)
- Sentai (guardian)
- Bakamono (monster) ---> THIS DOES NOT MEAN MONSTER! IT MEANS "STUPID PERSON!"
- Shinpai Ja Nai (don't worry)
- Tenshi Ja Nai (I'm no angel)
- Alien Ja Nai! (I'm not an alien!)

Noah Vocab:
- "Hackles" as in "His hackles stood up."

On The Answerman:
- There will never be another episode of Weiss Krutz, Berserk, or Dragon Half.
- My moment of fame on Answerman's column (yellow butterflies question -- it's at the bottom!)
- Alison's relabeled Azumanga comic
- Our beef with him is that he said that AMVs are not legitimate art.
- Here's the episode of AWO with Zac bitching about Otakon 2006.
- The March 2nd 2007 Answerman column that I read on our show.
