To celebrate Pride month, Sully sat down with voice actor, script writer, and ADR director David Wald to discuss his work in working to dub and license LGBTQ themed anime, including Love Stage!! and Hitorijime My Hero. David is known for voicing Gajeel Refox in Fairy Tail, Bulat in Akame ga Kill!, Berg Katze in Gatchaman Crowds, and Tetsutetsu in My Hero Academia, and has been the ADR director for Love Stage!!, Hitorijime My Hero, Kokkoku, Bloom Into You, and the upcoming dub of Cutie Honey Universe. In this episode, David discusses pushing to get more queer anime into the West, the place that LGBTQ fans have in the anime community, and introducing anime to a wider audience. Sully and David also talk about how anime can play an important role in the coming out narratives of LGBTQ fans.Note: Due to connection issues, there are some drop outs on David's end from the mid point until the end of the podcast. Austin tried to edit around them the best he could but unfortunately, the sound quality is not the best. Show notes are available at www.thirdimpactanime.comFollow us on Twitter at Play:
So while some jerks were in Atlanta on Memorial Day weekend, the rest of us were in Raleigh for Animazement! The con brought us out as Featured Panelists, doing what we do best: talk way too much about Japanese cartoons.We had a total of 24 hours of content to provide over the weekend, some new, some old.

Last weekend at Animazement in Raleigh, NC, Bill and I had the pleasure of having Robert Woodhead on the show. Robert is the Founder and CEO of Wilmington, NC's AnimEigo, one of the oldest anime licensing companies in North America. Anime fans these days would know them best for their highly successful Kickstarter campaigns to re-release titles such as Bubblegum Crisis, Otaku no Video, Riding Bean, and most recently, Gunsmith Cats. Huge thanks to Robert for coming on the show! And thanks to Animazement for making this possible. Note: Please pardon the audio quality on this episode.
