Otaku 5-0 Season 3: Episode 10

Aloha everybody!

In our latest episode of Otaku 5-0, we preview TWO topics that we'll be doing for our 4th Season!

1) Moviematic 5-0
Leave it to Mr. A (Executive Producer) to come up with something both quirky and entertaining at the same time. His latest effort is a two-part topic that begins and ends in the same episode. The first part (which we have called "The Pitch") involves me, at the beginning of an episode, announcing a word to the other contributors. They now have until the end of that episode (which sets up the second part, named, "The Return") to create a plotline for a movie with the announced word in the title.

2) Topic From The Past
When writing the format for each episode of Otaku 5-0, my most difficult job is to NOT re-tread over any ideas that we've done in the past (a rare exception being that we did two topics involving comedians in Seasons 1 and 2 respectively.) As such, I keep an updated database of every single topic that we've done since our premiere episode. However, I also understand that our staff has changed since then (the departure of Cetic & Star, and the addition of Maka & Zell) so I determined that we will go back and revisit topics from our previous episodes of a particular season (in this case, Season 1.)

And finally, we are joined on the panel by Zell's friend (and newest member of our podcast team) Ross, which we have nicknamed Gears. (Although originally named "Gear" by Mr. A, I mistakenly added the "s", and after that the name stuck) Also, in an effort to get to know him a bit better, we actually took him through a shortened version of "The Gauntlet" at the end of the episode. We look forward to working with him as a panelist on future episodes.
