The A-01 Podcast is back with episode twelve right here at The Outerhaven where we aim to bring you honest thoughts from three of The Outerhaven’s biggest anime and manga fans. Even though it is a monthly podcast, we made it one entire year and have enjoyed every single minute of it. 2017 is right around the corner and we look to continue to bring you our thoughts on the anime and manga world next year! 

A big thank you to all who continue to make this podcast possible!
