Week in Geek: Inspired by last week, Andrew starts watching Cowboy Bebop while Dan checks out the new sketchbook by one of his favorite working artists, Giannis Milonogiannis, called Never Be Game Over.
Sub Vs. Dub: Dan and Andrew tackle what is possibly a moot issue in the world of digital home video and media, but they still find the issues underpinning the perennial debate over which is a better experience: subtitled anime versus English dubbed versions.
Toshiro Mifune: Despite being a bit of older news, Andrew and Dan discuss the importance of Hollywood recognizing the contributions of Toshiro Mifune to not only Japanese cinema but American (and worldwide) cinema as well.
