The Anime Nostalgia Podcast ep 12

iTunes subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

All March long (or as I've been calling it, RanMarch! *rimshot*) we're celebrating Ranma 1/2 in honor of Viz re-releasing both the anime and the manga here in the US. So what better time to do a Ranma 1/2 themed podcast episode?! Join me and my friend, Ranma-superfan Chevelle (or as you might know her on Tumblr, Kappatea), as we talk about things like the history of Ranma's release in America, the struggle of collecting unnumbered $30 VHS tapes, and my horrible Shampoo impersonation (among other things.)
