Otaku 5-0 Season 2: Episode 2

Aloha everybody!

I know it's been a while, but we've had a few minor setbacks in the scheduling area. However, I am pleased to present the next exciting episode of our podcast!

Not only is this currently the longest episode we have produced, but this is the second episode that carries a disclaimer statement (for history's sake, the first episode can be found here.) After the recording session was completed, all the panelists unanimously agreed that this episode would serve as a perfect example of what would happen if Otaku 5-0 "went extreme." Rest assured, this is probably as extreme as I'm willing to take it.

However, let me apologize in advance for any content that you (our audience) may find offensive or objectionable.

THANK YOU for giving Registration props! Really appreciate the comment. This year we hope to make things go faster, especially with the new system. Anyways keep up the good work!

Yes! Registration is one of the hardest jobs there is at Kawaii Kon and they deserve major props to them. Also, about the game show, we are working on improving it, so never fear - it will be coming back better, faster, stronger, and (hopefully, not too much) harder. Sorry that Smilex will not be present to see the changes we are implementing.
