Trying something new for the podcast, although this is not entirely new. The “Centaku Media Journal” has been seen through a couple of formats: published on the original blog as “The CEN.TAKU.ME Journal”, as well as attempted for opening our weekly gaming livestreams. This will be a feature published on a bi-weekly basis to accompany the monthly episodes, highlighting the latest news in the anime, gaming, and Japanese and Korean entertainment industries. This way the main episodes won’t be as long as the pilot episode. ?
In this episode: a character from Pokémon: Sword/Shield will be introduced in the Pokémon Journeys anime, the future of Tokyo Game Show 2020, and Stray Kids to make Japanese debut with anime theme songs.
