DocHaus has disappeared, but the rest of the AlphaVictorians have moved on. So instead of dragging on and waiting for him, the team of Kurt (damswedon) Firehawk12 and the Crazy Canuck have started an offshoot podcast called Bravo Whiskey. Who knows, DocHaus may one day return to it, but if you want an amateur animu-related podcast that actually updates more than once-a-"whenever," check out Bravo Whiskey at http://thatothersquadcast.podomatic.com Will there be other podcast-y goodness in this space? Maybe. Who knows.
Whatever the fate of AlphaVictor, thank you for listening.

This was supposed to go up over a month ago. Is AV dead? Fuckin DocHaus needs to actually join us in one of these things again.
On this episode DocHaus is out fighting in the 4th dimension but the show must go on! He can't stop us from talking about K-On! or Bioware! Muwahahahaha!
This week Kurt, Crazycanuck, and Firehawk12 talk about Tari Tari, bait-and-switch anime, and what can be done about the resent licensing issues removing sub tracks from blu-rays. In an attempt to be topical we talk about the Olympics just in time for the start of the London Paralympics.

Several weeks ago, we recorded a podcast. Things happened and the original file of mine got destroyed. Luckily CrazyCanuck had a copy of the whole chat so we could put this out. Unluckily, the sound quality is...sub-optimal. Things we talked about:
- The end of EVO Fighting Championships and Persona 4 Arena preview (still relevant at the time!)
- Impressions of various shows this season
- Kurt still hates everything you like, especially Upotte!
- other stuff I forget
Sorry for this low-effort description. I feel like this episode could have been better, but dammit it's been like 6-7 weeks so we need to say something. Just listen to the show. We appreciate it.

Finally, everyone was here and we got a theme! So let's see, what did we talk about in this podcast? CrazyCanuck talks about the various deaths of characters in anime and how they were drained of meaning, not all that much better than their western counterparts. Also, Fujiko Mine solved the Cuban Missile Crisis, Kurt hates "that fucking gun show" anime, and we decide to not bother previewing the next anime season. Yes, it really does look that terrible, unlike this podcast!

Oh crap oh crap its been a month and change since we uploaded something...where's that episode description? Ah, here we are:
DocHaus was out partying again, so the other AlphaVictorians talked about random things without him, including manga readers, mahjong, and Final Fantasy (again!).
Really? That's it? You suck. You all suck at descriptions.

Whiskey Media may have split, but we can't be bought off by our new corporate overlords (unless they give us money, then we can talk)! Among the topics discussed, DocHaus talks about Daily Lives of High School Boys, the crew talks about other anime that ended by the time you hear this podcast (for better or worse) and Kurt decides to let out some flamebait--or was that jailbait?--about J-Pop idols. Something like that. I probably should have edited that bit out. Uh oh. Send me a postcard from prison, Kurt!

DocHaus has yet to actually play Mass Effect 3, but everyone else won't shut up about it, so he rants about another topic instead: Crunchyroll using "spec work" to get one of their fans to create a mascot for them where the "winner" gets no tangible or intangible prize and forfeits their rights to ownership of said mascot if they win. Also, Kurt still hates everything you like. Except Mass Effect 3.

DocHaus recovers from celebrating the shit out of Presidents' Day as we try (and fail) to not rage at length about recent shows we hate, then we briefly preview upcoming series for the Spring anime season that we hope will do better. Kurt looked for a copy of Wandering Son and walked out with 4 volumes of K-on, and talks about his love-hate relationship with DC Comics. Also, there's talk about Gotham City Imposters for a bit (they got better) and anime golf games.
On a semi-related note, your friendly AlphaVictorians Kurt (damswedon) and Adam (DocHaus) guest-starred on a podcast about Mass Effect 3 on Giant Bomb, where we wildly speculated about the game before it came out. You can find it at http://www.soundcloud.com/slowbird/mass-effect-3-speculation
The Doc was recuperating after dealing with the podcast. "I don't give a shit, talk about what you want," he said. So we AlphaVictorians decided to talk about space donuts, Final Fantasy 13-2, and also some anime-related things. Hey, does anyone actually read these descriptions? "My name is Adam and I love to smell people's farts." He totally said that. His words, not mine. Uh-oh, gotta go before he finds out I borrowed his account and password from Anonymous in exchange for a pack of gum and a hacked PSP...
