Manga Dome Podcast on Hiatus

Manga Dome headerI know I did an episode already about how much it sucks for something you like to go on hiatus. I’m making a big assumption that people like my podcast, but this is something I need to do. It’s been starting to weigh on me for a while. Coming up with topics, doing the research, the recording and editing and video; I’ve been coming to dread it. It’s become more of a chore than something fun. I’ve been putting it off more and more each week, a sure sign that I’m not enjoying it anymore. Added to this is stress from RL, and doing the podcast just seemed to add to my frustration instead of taking away from it.

So, as of this weekend, I am putting the podcast on hiatus. If and when things settle down I may come back to it. One of the things I’ve come to realize is that I want to work more on my writing, and I’ve found that working on the podcast has been eating up those precious hours I have on the weekend. I will continue to write and review manga. I may even bring some of my podcast segments to written form and try to post more often. I’ll see how things work out.

In the meantime, thank you to all who have listened to my gravelly voice as I have ranted and reported about manga over the past year and a half. It can’t have been easy. I truly appreciate any and all who have listened and maybe found something I said interesting, or completely disagreed with everything I said. I hope that you will continue to follow my blogs and enjoy my silly ramblings.

This week I make a minor change. The Weekly Wish List is now This Week’s Manga. I check out a few stories In the News, new titles at Crunchyroll Corner, what’s new in the Top Ten Department, and then I review Marvel Comics’ poor attempt to lure in manga readers with the unbelievably bad X-Men the Manga. It has to be seen to be believed.
