Otaku 5-0 Season 3: Episode 1

Aloha everybody!

It's hard to believe that 365 days ago, myself and two friends (Cetic & Mr.A, who was then known as Cupid) got together and recorded the FIRST episode of our podcast. It should be said that until that time, none of us had ever done anything like this and we weren't entirely sure as to what the end result would be. But nonetheless, we were optimistic.

And as we enter into our second year, I am happy to say that my optimism hasn't faded at all. We have a LOT of stuff in store for you, so please stay tuned as we start our second calendar year!

To our longtime listeners, we would like to thank you for staying with us this long. To those of you are just joining us, I would like to welcome you with a heartfelt "Aloha" and hope that you find our efforts both informative & entertaining.

glad to see you all back for your 3rd season - I am looking forward to hearing it and getting inspired for our own (which got side-tracked for a bit - will hopefully get back on soon). Awesome to hear you all again and hope to be able to participate again this season too!
