How is it that Kyokai is able to run the awesomeness that is Metanorn? That’s exactly what the AAA Podcast wanted to know!
When you go to A.A., the goal is to get rid of that drinking habit. But when you go to AAA (Anime Addicts Anonymous), they go a totally different direction and actually worsen your anime addiction! Sounds like a club I should sign up for… oh wait, I already have.
Kyokai joined the AAA team (featuring Chiaki, Kimiko and Mitsugi) for episode 96 of their podcast as the AAA girls and boy interviewed Kyo about the ins and outs of running an aniblogging site like Metanorn. Not only do the AAA folks do the standard weekly audio podcast. They also record the podcast live over on ustream.tv, and you can watch the folks talk with Kyokai here. Kyo wasn’t on camera… she’s very camera-shy! #UnconfirmedTrueStory
You can find the mp3 of the episode on their iTunes feed, or you can check out their Ustream channel to watch the AAA folks as Kyokai also talks impressions on some of the recent airing anime series, and she gives a nice review for Natsume Yuujinchou.

The AAA Podcast records every Sunday evening at 8:00 PM EST on UStream. We are a proud member of their very own AAA Network, which adds another location for people to find Metanorn and the MetaVerse podcast among several other great anime and gaming podcasts. Shout out to Mitsugi, Chiaki and Kimiko once more (and the absent Ryouko, also) for having Kyokai on the podcast!
