You guys should really set up a tumblr feed or something just so you're out there and can have an easy way for people to click on your episodes.

That would be a fun discussion. Too bad, huh? Probably wouldn't matter though because if I was on Dakazu would probably feel obligated to shit-talk gundam just because I was there and I like it. :lol:

Dakazu, would you say no5 compares well to ping pong or Tekkonkinkreet?

no.5 is like tekkonkreet street meets Yellow submarine. It's fucking weird.

If you listened to the podcast then you'd know I'm watching Z.

I would, but as I've already discussed, I'm currently behind like, 5 months of podcasts. Plus I can't even get Manga Machinations into my podcast-app to listen to because there's no RSS feed for it or anything (something I actually spent an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out a workaround for and eventually gave up with). Add to that extenuating circumstances, I feel like MM is unfortunately in part of my self-imposed off-limits zone. :(

Edit: You should get darfox to figure out how to set up an RSS feed for it, that'll probably help a lot with people trying to get into and keeping up with your podcast.

That's the RSS feed. I set it up on my podcast app easily. Pretty sure whatever you're using is the problem.

Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough? But I don't know how I was supposed to know that, since it isn't posted in any recent updates, or on the tumblr, or on the alltalkpodcast.com, or on the OP of this thread. Thanks for the link though, many appreciations.

The retardation of Naruto is hitting new, profound levels. The new and exciting ways they've found to dump on Sakura as a character is ridiculous. Sasuke's idiocy has now been warped from psychopath to full-on autistic dad. And for a comic about Naruto's son, and Naruto, there's a disturbing lack of either.

The only positive I can think about this comic, is that it's attempting to undo all the damage the original comic's ending unwittingly did to the show's main themes of nurture beating out nature. But it's doing that in the dumbest of ways. Salad going full-emo and taking it out on her mom is beyond stupid.
