  7. Kyokai says:

    • Tofu says:

      Kyo, is it alright if I ask you to add the link to Sekijitsu in my name on the Top 15 commenter ranking box? and if you’d like, could you put it on Elyon’s too? ^^

  8. anaaga says:

    …Can I listen to it without me being all red?

  9. Ness says:

    Damn Jrow, giving me only 5$!! PFFT. I do not gamble! I thought I made myself clear in EP.01><; Hahah, I love Junko's stranded on an island answer. So awesome. Pretty entertaining episode. xD

  10. Toori-chan says:

    Kyokai I shall charge over your dead body. K-ON is awesome. Thx to it I am now starting to be interested in drumming (Ricchan!!!) Its a must watch.

    Seriously, I don’t like following long episode anime. It gives me a feeling of no-end towards it. No offense, I cheered when I first saw Gintama ending before it came back with new episodes (Did the same on Naruto).

    I will miss you, Tomoko Kawakami. Love your work on Kara no Kyoukai and Air. I didn’t watch Darker than Black and Bleach (Sorry…).

    Shoot!!! You freshmeats really make me regret not apply for Metanorn. Argghhh!!! (Don’t bother about the current me for now)

    Love the picture of Miku and Luka in Magnet. Really fits Zabobinator and Anaaga.

    I had a good laugh for another episode. Good job people.

    • Hato-kun says:

      DRUM. DRUM TO YOUR HEARTS CONTENT. (I’m a drummer. Drumming is awesome)

      • Toori-chan says:

        Lets rock!!! (Drumming is the coolest instrument, requires lots of synchro though)

    • anaaga says:


      • Toori-chan says:

        I’ll pretend I didn’t see the second sentence.
        Plss don’t infect yaoi into yuri…

      • Toori-chan says:

        Listening to Magnet now reminds of the two of you

    • Kyokai says:

      Oh really? Asking for impossible aren’t you? =P

      At least you had enough take-home laughter.

  11. Hato-kun says:

    Well, if any of you are stranded on an island, you wont be getting any help from me.

  12. Namika says:

    Too bad I can’t listen to this for now 🙁
    My computer is like…… dying slowly and painfully. And I can’t even watch anime ><""""

  13. Overcooled says:

    Will download and listen after I finish my essay. Sounds like it was an awesome episode…*hurries up with work*

    • Overcooled says:

      LOL you guys still remember me becoming Hato’s waifu? Uh oh, Sassy’s not gonna like me if that actually comes about.

      Now I know what Junko sounds like! And Scanty & Kneesocks theme UNF, YES.

      Sorry I wasn’t there for the E3 talk D: *cries* But otherwise, nice wrap up, boys~

      Aww Zabob, your reaction to getting accepted was adorable XDD Kawaii~~ I’ll do my best to be a good senpai for all of you!

  14. Karakuri says:

    I can’t believe I had to miss this. SIGH but at the same time is seems I managed to avoid some pretty awkward questions lol

    Congrats to Zab and Anaaga!

  15. Trusx says:

    Zabobinator I’m with you on AnoHana and AnoHana’s OP theme!

    Poor Hato!

    anaaga xD I also save my money for yaoi

  16. The embarrassing stories were hilarious! (Not to laugh at you guys or anything). Zabobinator I actually thought your father would have thought you snuck a guy over and did..never mind. Anaaga, I actually respect you more now because of that story because I’m an environmentalist too xD ENERGY CONSERVATION,WASTE REDUCTIONS, AND TREES FTW!
    Congratulations Zabob and Anaaga! You have my blessing (just as long as you three don’t involve me in your explicit twitter activities *coughcough* I’m fine xD )!
    Everybody seems to have awesome hobbies. I really love your drawings Junko – Uwah they’re amazing :3
    Thanks a million for the shoutout Zabobinator & Kyokai. I LOVE YOU GIRLS. It’s so nice to hear that Daifuuku is doing well xD. Thanks again Kyokai for introducing me to the KK. We would still have been stuck at without you xD

    • Zabobinator says:

      There is no way I could have snuck a guy in and I have no desire to do so anyways. I don’t wanna die. xD

      <3 you Starburst-chan! ^_^

    • Kyokai says:

      DAWWW~ We love sweet things and so Daifuuku love. You are very much welcome! Budding anibloggers are exciting! xD

  17. Oracion says:

    Man. You guys are really too cool! Your team is so cool! Wish I knew how to blog! You guys really add to my love of anime and manga with all your commentary and updates!

    • Kyokai says:

      DAWWWWWW~ Thank you! Your first comment too!

      Making animanga fun for everyone is easy because it’s fun for us. :3

    • Toori-chan says:

      Continue to stay at Metanorn. I may be a new commentor but i’ve been lurking in Metanorn since Dec 2009 and i’ll tell you that this blog is awesome as well as the team.

  18. Alynn says:

    Ohboy, this is distracting. I’m supposed to be studying for exams, but here I am listening to this amazing goodness of a Metanorn podcast.

    • Yvoon says:


      learn from me and just accept that you will never be able to escape from the awesomeness of Metanorn

    • Kyokai says:

      Aww shuck, you two! *glomps Alynn and Yvoon*

      Hope your exams went well, Alynn.

  19. anaaga says:


    • Toori-chan says:

      its related to blood, maybe that’s why

    • Kyokai says:

      What’s wrong with it? The relevance was from the right amount of girls and boys. And you know what? You are the twin tailed! xD

  20. Yvoon says:

    there’s been a lot of marriages lately haven’t there?

    what the occasion? 😀
