Episode 24 – Talking with Digibro Part 1

“I came away with the impression… “an otaku I could depend on” “

~ Mitsuro Kubo

You are listening to Senpai Coast to Coast – the best damn anime podcast! This episode, as the title implies, I sit down to talk with Digibro and as we discuss the issues of the fandom we try and think of solutions. The honest conclusion is that better communication and collaborative efforts are better for us all – and something we should strive for. This is part 1 of 2 parts, so make sure to subscribe to catch the second part when it comes out!

-Raising the Level of Communication-


YouTube anime personality extraordinaire, and self described “Otaku Gonzo Journalist” Digibro has been making videos since 2012. His channels, Digibro and Digibro After Dark, focuses on the analysis of and personal thoughts of anime.Recently he made the video, On the Need For A Cabal of Anime Gurus which was the cause for this interview.

    It’ll be long wait for part 2.

    I feel that Digibro’s comment on “Everyone being on their own island” isn’t just an anime thing and feels like it’s a problem across many mediums in general. The only difference is that most other mediums cover the required topics to get audience up to speed on their own eventually.

      Like, they’re the type of otaku that Miyazaki hates the most? The type who dive deeper and deeper onto the anime world and don’t have interest in the world they’re inspired upon?

    Not the episode I wanted, but at least I don’t have to look at that hairy face here…

    Last week I asked, “When western bloggers and vloggers will be quoted with the same level of respect and authority that we reserve for otakus with a degree from some whatever japanese university? Both study, think, and debate equally hard and deep.”.
    For more that western otakos like to talk among themselves about anime they like, they seem to have a considerable aversion for two things: animes that spark discussion, ironically, and known faces within the fandom “banning” their understanding of particular animes.
    Or is just the state of things in hueland.
