Questions from #CrunchyCast

  • Why did you choose to name Case Closed instead of Detective Conan? (Nicholas “Picky33”)

  • Emperor J ‏@emperorj  How far can each of you punt a football?

  • If you had to choose, would you want a few really well animated shows, but to minimize risks, the companies only produced idol, harem and loli-shows; or would you want a lot of different shows, but with lower animation quality and a lot of copy/paste looking (and acting) characters? - From Anton in Sweden

  • all talk of anime by film buffs is limited to Mamoru oshi, Otomo, Miyazaki, Takahata, Shinchiro Watanabe and Satoshi Kon, What other anime directors deserve to be  know outside the anime circle?
