Otaku 5-0 Season 1: Episode 15

Aloha everybody!

The first leg of our journey has come to an end...

I am proud to present to you the final episode of Otaku 5-0's inaugural season. This is our first attempt to produce a podcast with a 4-person panel. If I do say so, I think it turned out pretty well. And of course, I think it interesting to note that this episode is CURRENTLY the longest we have ever produced!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank every member of our growing audience for taking the time to download and/or listen to our episodes. We hope that you'll continue to listen to us when we return. And for those who are just now discovering our podcast, we welcome you with open arms.

On behalf of the entire staff of Otaku 5-0, I wish you a very heartfelt, "Happy Holidays!"

See you all next year for our Season 2 premiere!

~Totoro (Creator/Executive Producer, Otaku 5-0)
