  1. Patrick Macias says:

    I like your style!

  2. Wow, thanks. Ditto on what Patrick said.

  3. (o_O)? It figures Anime Diet would win an award. They really put in a lot of hard work in what they do, which kind of makes me anvy them. My hats off to them. Good job!

    I’m surprised that in 13 years that I have been writing and producing radio shows for Sailor Moon Classics NET Radio, I have never won anything.

    Series Of The Year, I think it should have went to the Japanese Anime, “Noien” Now that is a great anime. it was well worth the $70 dollars for the complete DVD set.

    It’s in both Japanes and English Dub and Sub.

    Voice Actor/Actress Of The Year: My vote is with, “Horie Yui” and, “Megumi Hayashibara” These two are hot looking, sing great, and have cute Anime voices.

    American Company Of The Year: Bandai Entertainment, Oh god I wont even go there.

    Movie Of The Year: My vote is with, “Final Fantasy The Movie – the spirits within” and “Final Fantasy VII Advent Children” Now this Anime was off the hook.

    To bad you don’t have one on best Hentai film, because I can name a few good ones worth seeing.


  4. Opp’ that should have been “Noein”

  5. Fantastic episode, I do like the longer episode format better, I must admit.

    Thanks for your kind words, I’ll certainly have to check out Anime-Diet radio, which I have yet to do.

    When are you going to release darn promo, son!?

  6. Oh yes, thanks for the “runner up” award!

    Yes; Very exciting!

  7. I was about to mention Paprika as Film of the Year worthy, but then I realized it came out in 2006! Where did 2007 go?

    Best wishes for Anime Genesis in 08, Cutie :)
