OTDT Roundabout 29 June 2014

In case you were busy researching what Luis Suarez and Zero Kiryu had in common, here’s some of the news you missed this week.

-We mentioned earlier how in Tokyo, women can get heckled about being unwed.  Apparently in Osaka, you can get chided for having a child.  Different strokes for different folks or just a single shade of short-sighted?

-Moving on to lighter things, Nintendo continues to build hype for Hyrule Warriors. Smash Brothers 4 needs no hype, but it does need a theme cover using nothing but kazoos.

-As someone who has an interest in meta-fictionally real people (shout-out to my prior gig), this is practically old news.

-In freshman seiyuu news, a midfielder does Pokemon and a talento does robots in disguise

-I’m not entirely sure how this will work, but I’m sure it will be full of amusement

-Someone pointed out that PreCure is now just as voluminous as Dragon Ball.  Only 1750 behind Sazae-San.

And I’d be remiss not to point out OTDT’s menagerie of work, from Gundam days to Netflix Knights.
