On this episode of the CaliConBlogCast, the crew have a feeling that something's in the way as they look at the continuing trend of "things that won't die" and discuss new...Kingdom Hearts? We also dive into Matthew's weekend in Roseville, what the Persona 25th anniversary has brought us in the wake of the Kingdom Heart announcements, a rash of hackings that includes Anime Expo's Twitter account, Dalton's love of The Prince of Tennis, FanimeCon canceling Swap Meet (supposedly), Netflix's recent fall and what it means for anime streaming, and the battle over unionization within the US anime dubbing industry & how Nintendo plays into this conversation.
