With robots in anime, recorded live January 19th, 2009.

 ... ( Lakefront Brewery ) ...
This week we discussed robots in anime. Including cyborgs and androids. We argued a bit about whether or not mechs count... and decided that's a show in itself! Listen this week, as we try to define what's considered a robot in anime. Plus there was feedback, contest entries, segments and more. Join us this week for another installment, another discussion and for more of our nerdy otakutainment. What are you waiting for...? Put your pants back on! ...and download already!

Mentioned Stuff and Link(s) (during the show)

OG "guess the character in the envelope" Contest
Bryce once and a while has a great idea for a contest... long ago... this was something we used to do. Now it's back!

We picked an anime character for the new-run of the contest... we wrote it down on a piece of paper, and sealed it up in an envelope. You the listener must figure out who the "character in the envelope" is...

The prize will be a pack of goodies, and maybe something more *hint*hint*cough*...

What are the rules? They're pretty simple. First off, we will only accept one guess per email, once a week. If you put more than one guess, in an email, we will only take the first guess.

You cannot enter more than once an week, and not more than once per email. Please pay attention to the use of the word "character", it could be a person, animal, a lobster pig, a monkey butler, a plant, a dog (assuming they are portrayed as "character" some how), almost anything... cept bryce; it can never be bryce! =D

Each week will reveal a little more about the "character in the envelope" in an anime, until someone guesses it right, and wins.

As usual listen to the show for more details, and email your guesses to: contests@otakugeneration.net, and use the subject line of: OG CHARACTER IN THE ENVELOPE CONTEST

We insist at least 10 people give their guesses, before we give another clue.

NOTE: We will only count guesses that make it in before Monday at 5pm EST. If there any dups we will carry them over as your guess for the corresponding week. So get them in before Monday by 5pm EST! Only 1 guess allowed per week.

Have and enjoy!
