A few days ago Scott Spaziani kindly invited me on to the first episode of his Otaku in Review podcast to discuss the best, worst and most overlooked anime shows of 2009 – something I’m really grateful to him for, not just because it was a lot of fun but because it also got me out of having to write one of those ‘review of the year’ posts. Yeah, I know. I’m a lazy bastard.

Also on the show was my good mate and occasional sparring partner Jon Ingoglia of Janaiblog and Chuck Gaffney of Chuck’s Anime Shrine. So if you want to hear what (a pretty hungover) me and the other guys picked as our high and low-lights of 2009 hit the link below. Oh, and Happy New Year.
