08 My Skin Tone is Not Your Prop (aka Anime Expo 2018) - Black N Animated Podcast

July 15, 2018

In this episode Bre and Way bring on guest Clayton D’andrade as we talk about our experience at Anime Expo 2018 last week. We discuss cosplaying characters that are not specifically your skin tone and why it’s great to cosplay any character you want, as well as our favorites of the expo, and previous convention experiences we’ve had. (There’s quite a bit of cosplay talk in this ep!)

Black N Animated Podcast Episode 02: Black N Nerdy for Anime

Black N Animated Podcast Episode 02: Black N Nerdy for Anime

April 22, 2018

Welcome to the second episode AND our first WB Episode! WB or BW? (Whichever floats your boat)  WB episodes are casual chat episodes that take a break away from the interviews discussing topics in animation and how they relate to black culture. On this episode we discuss anime that inspired us growing up and how it impacted our artwork. We also touch upon the unfortunate circumstance of racial stereotypes and minstrel looking characters in anime and while it may not be intentionally malicious it’s not okay to have designs that are rooted in negative characterization.  Can’t forget to bring up the boondocks as well, and how artists like Aaron Mcgruder and LeSean Thomas were part of the wave of Ameri-anime that paved the way for young black artist.

Thanks for listening folks!

Here is a Google Doc of ALL the characters, and Anime mentioned in the episode! https://bit.ly/2HPUYBH
