We're finally back after a month+ hiatus. Don't worry, things may have slowed, but they certainly haven't stopped. We're hoping to get back to a more regular release schedule soon.   This week, Tori and Austin interview two brothers behind the anime-inspired apparel and lifestyle brand BOOMSLANK. If you frequent conventions in the United States, chances are high that you've ran into these guys multiple times. Heck, you might be wearing one of their shirts right now!   We discuss their anime origin story, what it's like running a business as Nigerian-Americans in the anime sphere, the convention artist alley grind, how they began working with Crunchyroll, and how David gives back by teaching art classes for kids.   Be sure and check out all their amazing products on their website: https://boomslank.com/   Show notes are available on our website: www.thirdimpactanime.com More helpful links: https://linktr.ee/thirdimpactanime Follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/TI_Anime Subscribe on Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | YouTube | Stitcher | Podbean Support on Ko-Fi | Patreon

Welcome to a brand-new sub show on the Third Impact Anime Podcast; Kotatsu Corner! Kotatsu Corner is a mini-sode series where we take a break from our typical, highly organized episodes and just chat about whatever is on our minds.

In this episode, we discuss coping with COVID-19, cancelled conventions, Animal Crossing, FFVII Remake (which we hadn't played yet at the time), the almighty MOFA, and more! Please enjoy!

Andrew returns in his very first hosting role to discuss one of his and Tobias' favorite comedy anime of all time, the now-classic series Azumanga Daioh! Bill comes along for the ride to give the non-superfan perspective. They discuss the series' origins, its impact on anime fandom of the early 00's, how it holds up and doesn't hold up, and whether or not Yotsuba& deserves an anime (hint: yes). Note that we are releasing this episode towards the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak across the United States. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe, healthy, and have peace of mind during this time of fear and uncertainty across the globe. We'll get through it! It does appear that conventions are going to be hit pretty hard with conventions both in Japan and in the US being cancelled every day. Check out our recent blog post on what you can do to help those who rely on the convention circuit for their livelihoods. Stay safe and stay healthy! Love to you all.

Note: This episode was recorded before Halloween and intended to be released before we went to Anime Weekend Atlanta but hey, we had a convention to prep for so please pardon the outdated info in the beginning. To stave off the inevitable arrive of Thank-Christmas-giving, we're here to extend the Halloween season just a bit with our post-Halloween special on legends and yokai in the TV series Yamishibai. For those unaware, or if you didn't listen to last year's Halloween special, Yamishibai is an anime anthology series consisting of a bunch of spooky short stories. This year, we picked 2 episodes each to explore the urban legends, yokai, or cultural elements they were based on. Please enjoy!
