Animé News Editorial

Running Time

On October 20th, 2009, MarzGurl produced an Animé related editorial show where she takes a look at Animé news items of the week and discusses her opinion of the news.

Originally intended to be a small rant about pirating, an administrative mistype that gave the Editorial a mistitle of "Episode 1", caused her fans to expect and demand more episodes and news, and caused her to create additional episodes.

Most episodes are under 10 minutes long, and the show is usually updated weekly.
