    I personally found this highly entertaining! Keep in mind, I’m not a huge anime fan, either.

      Glad to hear you enjoyed it! We’ll do our best to keep it that way 🙂

    Not to be critical, but this episode of the podcast was a good example of how I don’t feel that operation rainfall as a site and a group has really become cohesive around a specific subject. I just feel like there is too much different stuff going on that doesn’t really tie well together, and I’m struggling to figure out what the goals and aim of this site is. I know there was a poll awhile back regarding what direction to go, and I have my own ideas, but I still can’t shake how fractured it all feels right now.

    • Randy_Thompson

      Critical you are not, and gave your feedback in a super respectful manner. We certainly appreciate your thoughts and we will take this into consideration going forward.

      As it pertains to the podcast show, do you have any thoughts/feelings as to what we can do to better improve?

      Hmm. If I were to make suggestions for the podcast itself, it might be good to add some structure to it. IIRC right now there is a news section, and then a “topic of the cast” basically. Maybe add in a few segments. Given that this is a primarily video game (JRPGs?, Nintendo?) site, with a side focus on Anime(s), maybe make a segment about what your playing (common in most of the game podcasts I listen to), and then maybe a highlight about an upcoming game, maybe something about the anime of the week/month or something. Could also maybe highlight a piece of game music, or have interviews – especially if you can get some with Japanese companies (preferably in English though).

      In the end, I think the podcast will naturally become more cohesive as the rest of the site figures out what it wants to be.
