Show #50 - Even the Answerman is Wrong Sometimes
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:
- roadtrip across America
- San Diego
- Cedar Point
- Erin commutes to Connecticut
4 days a week.We've been watching:
- Nana anime
- Le Chevalier d'Eon
as opposed to the manga
. We love Chevalier and have to do a response to Dave & Joel's review
- 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
