This is our first episode and we’re glad to be here to deliver the oddest slant of panel podcasting for anime that we can deliver. In this episode we cover a ton of anime news that has flown down the pipes, and by a lot we mean a little though there are quite a few topics. We also cover a review of Fullmetal Alchemist which we love so dear and sadly no call-ins or email to speak of. But that’s OK because its the first episode.

Panel: Chris (132 Productions), Angelo (from um.. World of Warcraft?)

News:

4Kids Stopped production of One Piece at episode 104, aired 78 of them and still stays alive in Japan at 289 episodes(as of this podcast), The Annie Awards have no Anime for consideration, Death Note drops from 4 weeks at #1 to 3rd place, not to mention a possible Death Note spin off, Funimation gets a block of anime in Sacramento, Prince of Tennis and MAR move from Jetstream to full Toonami, Detective Conan(Case Closed) Movie 11 to be released in Japan in April, Broccoli gets some titles, RomeoxJuilet gets a trailer to pick up, Coyote Ragtime Show preview up on IGN, Oscar shines on Paprika which has a sound track up for one, JASRAC jumps on the sue YouTube banner, Canada has a Maid Cafe, and Witchblade Manga will be out in February with both a flipped and unflipped format.

Review:

We talked about the anime that dethroned Evangelion, Fullmetal Alchemist. We laughed, we cried, we kissed this anime’s ass.

So hi everyone! From my office at work.

Let me just get everyone up to speed on what’s going on. Our last episode of 132 was back in June. We did have some delays related to Chris’ issues at work and scheduling a time but that got sorted out. Then the issues at my work began. Long story short, I ended up the only one in the department which meant I was taking on the workload of 3 people so on top of overtime, I had absolutely no time to plan, record or edit episodes of the show. This is especially bad given the amount of awesome stuff to talk about. Including:

E3
Anime Expo
Suicide Squad
Batman V. Superman
X-Men Apocolyse
Independence Day 2
Classic Nintendo
Summer Steam Sale 2016
SGDQ 2016

Just to name a few. Fast forward two months later and we’re finally hiring a new guy to the department but that’s someone I have to train so no relief in sight right away. But, that means relief will be in sight soon. Once I’m back to a reasonable schedule expect normal Projekt 132 episodes to continue. Hopefully as fun as we have made them. I’m really enjoying this show so I really don’t want to let that die out again.

Now the advantage to extra work means extra pay. Extra pay that can go back into the show and future projects. I’ve already put in a big order for a new microphone for my own studio bringing the total count to 3 condenser and 2 directional microphones. Plus some extra cables as well as some more organizational stuff to make recording better and easier. It also makes recording in one spot easier too. We’re also looking for better ways to record as well as record when we are at conventions, which has always been a challenge. But I would love to have episodes done at conventions we visit such as PAX East and Anime Boston, or at the very least segments recorded at conventions. It also means we are secure with our webhosting for the moment as well. Sadly doing the podcasts costs us time and money, and while a lack of content can bring some money to the show… it’s still not bringing you content.

By October I’m projecting I’ll be free enough to return 132 to normal podcasting greatness. With any luck I’d love to expand with two side projects as well if things take off as well as I hope. But that’s a tale for another day. Honestly, I miss sharing everything with you all so please bear with us as I get everything back in line so that we can get back to providing the fun podcast you all want to listen to! Thanks!
