The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 94: 2020 Year In Review with Zee

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

2020 is finally almost over! So you know what that means–that’s right, it’s the Year in Review! And much like Krampus, Zee is back to help discuss the results of my annual year-end survey as filled out by you, the listeners! What older anime titles were you excited to buy (sometimes again) this year, and what titles are you looking forward to coming out in 2021? We also talk about all the memorable news stories from throughout this long, endless garbage fire of a year (though if you are utterly exhausted from hearing about 2020 news things, once you get around the time stamp 2:02:49, you can skip to right around the 3:36:56 mark!) I should note that, due to the year 2020 being ABSOLUTELY cursed, my original audio for this ep didn’t turn out great, so I was forced to fall back on my basic Skype recording, ON TOP OF the fact that the survey results got a little borked. So apologies that this episode is far from perfect, but hopefully it’ll still give you some laughs as we try our best to cast out the demons of this wild ride of a year in this extra long episode (with some bonus bloopers after the ending theme! Happy holidays!!)

It's that time again!


It’s become tradition that in December, I do a Year in Review podcast episode. And once again, I need your help! So please, dear listeners, take a moment to let me know your opinions on older anime titles that were re-released this year (among other things) on the survey HERE! In the spirit of the season, several lucky listeners who live in the United States & fill out the survey will be chosen at random to win special prizes, which I’ll post more info about really soon! You have until December 18th to fill out the survey, so hop to it!!  
Thanks to everyone who participated! The survey is now closed!
I’ll announce the winners on the new episode of the podcast when me & my special guest will discuss the results!
Want to get a special holiday shout out in the last episode of 2020? All you have to do is tip me a coffee at my Ko-Fi account here! Thanks, and look forward to an awesome Year In Review episode this year!!
