About Tooning Japanese

Tooning Japanese is a podcast where three dudes in their thirties sit down each week and review anime from their teen years.  We have reviewed all of Excel Saga, Trigun, Gurren Lagaan, and are currently reviewing Wolf's Rain.

We love creating this podcast for our fans.  We will always give you the best content that we possibly can.  That being said, there are some things beyond our control that your contribution to the show will help us with.

1.  The cost of hosting, the website, & advertising
  • We are in the process of moving over all of our old and current episodes from Podomatic to Podbean. While this will enable us to keep all of our former content live, it comes with a cost of $108/year.
  • Aside from the hosting costs, our website ( currently costs $26/year. We also promote our podcast at local conventions, which incur costs for the booth and printing promotional materials.  These cost comes directly out of the pocket of one of our hosts, Andy.  Anything that the fans can give back will help alleviate those costs.
2.  The time put into editing and releasing episodes
  • Every episode takes Andy around 2-5 hours to edit and put together.  He currently works two different jobs, both of which require substantial work at home as well.  Add everyday life and work on The Shadowvane Podcast, and it's become difficult to keep up the schedule for Tooning Japanese.
  • Your donations will allow us to eventually hire someone to edit and produce our episodes.  This will free time to create more bonus content for our listeners.
3.  Recording Equipment
  • We want to do more interviews with voice actors and people within the anime community.  We had a blast interviewing Jessica Calvello and Dorothy Fahn, and we hope to bring more of that to you all!  Good software for recording remotely is an added cost we just don't have right now.
Anything that you can contribute will be go directly to the show!  We will pay it back by providing for you additional content laid out in our donation tiers as well as our overall goals.  Take a look at our page, give our show a listen, and contribute if you can!  Otherwise, we are excited to continue to bring you our brand of humor and reviews of our favorite shows!
$25 of $50 per month
If we reach $50/month, we'll release a bonus episode every month of a movie review! The movies will be voted on by our Patrons, and they will be released on the main feed for everyone.
