Tim took over hosting duties while I was away, but don't listen to the shameless lie he feeds you at the beginning of this episode: I was NOT snowboarding. I was skiing, which is completely different! Skiers are graceful athletes who deftly traverse a sparkling winter wonderland with style and aplomb; snowboarders are slackers who are always sitting on their butts in packs at the top of the trail, blocking everyone else from getting down the mountain. Please don't confuse these two things.
In my absence new Japanator editor L.B. makes his podcast debut, and the crew discusses the usual slate of anime (plus some new stuff) while Tim tries to constrain his massive mountain of hate for everything that has ever existed since the beginning of time. Fortunately, the otherwise-friendly L.B. seems to hate (or at least dislike) a few of the same things that Tim does, so it looks like his prospects around here are pretty solid. Also on the plus side: Ryuko Matoi's new outfit, which has been known to cover her entire butt.

Tim Makes Up His Own Segment Where People Talk About Stuff
Note: You can tell I wasn't around for this episode, since the conversation about Unsung Story took four minutes instead of four hours. Also, our coverage of Imocho (otherwise known as My Little Sister Pee Pee Dance) should be returning next week, so err...look forward to it?
