Konnichiwa!

In what is probably the worst episode of the Gaijin-Rock Show so far, Parv depresses everyone with really serious news, we talk about anime which is so bad it’s good, Kogie leaves early for some duck, and Sparkles* breaks the entire studio! Surely that’s reason enough to listen?! SURELY?!

Discussion: Is “fan service” a positive or negative thing?

Thank you so much to everyone who tuned in for Gaijin-Rock with Area 11 yesterday. Admittedly just shy of the 50 level that would have made Leo do something crazy in your honour, it’s still a record for us, and one we’re extremely proud of. We just hope that if you were one of the 48, and you enjoyed what you heard, you think about checking out some of our other shows.

Still, from the bottom of my socks: THANK YOU! Happy Dru is happy!

As well as this exciting news, we got £200 donation from Osku and Kralian for getting over 40!!!

Thank you again to everyone who tuned in, and especially to Osku and Kralian for their amazing generosity!!!

*Dru runs off to do the OMGHappy Dance*

Anare asked: How did you get your nickname?

Sadly I can’t think of any funny or weird answer to this… Odie (from Garfield)= Osku in Finnish. It’s my name, well nickname, but it might as well be real name since I always introduce myself as Osku. I don’t know where it started but I’ve always liked Osku better, only my mom calls me by my real name and its confusing sometimes: who? 🙂
