About Episode 117: Prison School and FUNimation

You’ve heard Cody shill for them for years, but now the once great FUNimation done screwed up royally, completely botching a PR nightmare the likes of which the anime industry has never seen before. But what really happened? Why do so many people seem so mad at what seems to be a throwaway line? Let The Other Side walk you through why, exactly, certain people at FUNimation need to lose their jobs.

    • Max-Vader

      Ducks are an exception. Or eggception. Whichever you prefer.

      • Aythya

        I will accept “eggception”, thank you.

    Also, someone needs to put those panel links in here, dangit. Auditory medium, remember!

    • …What panel?

      • Aythya

        When Max and Andrew were talking about the weird things in the manga.
        Not…not, like, a con panel. Looking back I can see how that was unclear.

    So how the hell am I supposed to know about the other side if you guys don’t show up on A3K?

    • Obviously there’ll be a formal announcement for where we’ll be moving to.

      • tccboss

        I keep my eyes open for what’s to come then.

      • I miss you guys and can’t wait to hear any new info on whats going to happen with the Other Side.

        • Our return’s been pushed back later than we wanted, but we ARE on our way back. We’re hoping for a late February/early March launch. Rest assured, everyone will be updated when the day gets closer!

          • I see. Thanks for the reply. 🙂

  • tccboss

    Rip A3K. Rip TOS. You left too soon.

  • Kinda miss not having a new show from you guys.

    • They are producing new episodes on

      • Thanks, I didn’t notice that happened. Hopefully the older episodes are available here as the Libsyn links appear to be gone now.

        • The entire catalog is indeed available.

          • Thanks, I just discovered it while I added the new feed to my player and saw all the classics having been added last April with the episode numbers going backwards as I scroll down!
