After the initial convention chat, we proceed with our Anime and Manga corner: talking about Dragonball, One Punch Man Season 2, what we are watching this anime season and what we are reading, and the Kyoto Animation tragedy. In the aftershow, we talk about the latest monumental manga chapters of Attack on Titan and our general thoughts on whether the manga has lost its way the past few years.

Episode 81: Anime North 2019

We recap our time at Anime North 2019, held in Toronto, Canada. We cover our experiences at the convention, including taking part as panelists and media, cospalying, organizing and running photoshoots, and seeing the exhibitor hall and artist alley. We take a no holds barred approach to evaluating the positives and negatives of Canada’s largest anime convention.

Notes:  The convention weekend marks the seventh year anniversary of the founding of the Bastards of Kingsgrave podcast!

Episode 80: Convention Season 2019


Bastards of Kingsgrave starts our coverage of the 2019 convention season with a recap of our time visiting as press at Calgary Expo 2019, including a live interview on the floor with Andrew Phung and Paul Sun-Hyung Lee from CBC’s Kim’s Convenience TV show (starts at 7 minutes in, audio quality improves around 7min 40 seconds in).

In the aftershow, we talk about our time at the Otafest anime convention and about our upcoming conventions this year. We also discuss the recent movies we have seen (Alita: Battle Angel,  Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) in a spoiler full discussion.

Episode 78: Detective Conan

Episode 77: Anime North 2018

Overlapping partly with recording an episode for A Podcast of Ice and Fire, we do a recap of our time at Anime North 2018, held in Toronto, Canada. We cover our experiences at the convention, including taking part as panelists, cosplaying, organizing and running photoshoots, and seeing the exhibitor hall and artist alley. We are not sure if we will be attending next year, so we take the time to evaluate the convention as a whole, both the positives and negatives, based on our last few years of attending the largest Anime convention in Canada.

Notes:  The convention itself marked the sixth year anniversary of the founding of the Bastards of Kingsgrave podcast!

Episode 76: Anime and Manga Corner IX

Bastards of Kingsgrave returns with a Anime and Manga Corner for Winter 2017/2018. We complete our earlier review of Orange with a discussion about the recent lackluster movie. We move from Orange to a discussion about Citrus and other shows we checked out this past season. We also cover the latest manga chapters of One Punch Man manga and Masamune’s Revenge.

Notes: All discussions are spoiler filled, as usual. Sunset is one of (and apparently the main one) of the two reasons why the show got its name.
