Japancast is for people who love anime, manga, the Japanese language, otaku culture, as well as Japanese food, customs and culture.

We've been podcasting since 2005 and now we need your help.

From 2012-2013 we upgraded all of our equipment.  Thanks to our fans in iTunes, we were the #1 HD video podcast in education and quite often we were in the top 25 of all video podcasts in iTunes!

But all that success came at a cost.  We've lost every hosting service we've used because we have too many fans!  

We would like to host the downloadable HD version of Japancast on something like Amazon S3, Azure or Google Cloud Storage.  In order to make that happen, we need help covering the bandwidth & production costs.

Take a look at some of the rewards we're offering.  If there's something else you'd like to see, just let us know.

Thank you very much for continuing to support Japancast!
