Just finished watching today's News of the Week! Just curious, but was it taped before Viz Media made their announcement about their license of Sailor Moon, or was there just not enough time to add it to the discussion? I would have liked to hear your thoughts on that; in particular, Viz Meida's plan to eventually stream all of the old TV episodes - including the Sailor Stars arc - as well as the new Crystal anime set to debut this summer.

After watching today's episode, I have one suggestion. When you guys get to The World is Still Beautiful during your New Simulcasts episodes, Justin should intro it as such - "The World is Still Beautiful - Margaret Likes That Sh*t." She totally was going to say that.

I kid of course (although that would be hilarious ).

Anyways, keep up the good work. Have fun at A-Kon.

I just recently caught up on the first couple episodes of Blade & Soul and then watched your intro episode for it now. Loved it BTW, keep up the great job you two!

In regards to the "Aruka" versus "Alka" pronunciation of her name, I've studied Japanese and know why you may be confused about her name. Both are the same exact name and are correct ways to say it in English. It's just a matter of translation preference which you prefer to use when you pronounce it.

アルカ in katakana is spelled "Aruka" in romaji, which is how we can closest approximate the spelling of Japanese words using the English alphabet. However, when you pronounce this name in a native Japanese tongue it sounds closer to the "Alka" spelling in English. The reason why is the "U" in "RU" is almost silent and the "R" in "RU" is somewhere in between an "L" and an "R" sound in English; as the Japanese "R" is not quite the same as we have in English. So, when you say her name again on the show rest assured either way of saying it is fine in English.
