I like the classic look they're going for. New VAs for Zenigata, Fujiko, and Goemon. The voice of Jigen is the only one left of the original cast. I hope this special doesn't suck as much as the past few have.
Otaku Revolution is run by myself, Falldog, and long term associate PenguinTruth. We've had a few other contributors over the years as well, including Juu-kuchi and singled_out. It's been mainly just a place for our various nerd musings since 2008. At some point I thought it would be nifty to have a full blown anime site, but tallent and ambition aren't always hand in hand.
OtakuRevolution.com was born from another site, OtakuRevolution.net, which was a web forum and sprite comic site dating back to the early 2000s. I was a member at that time, and somehow snagged the .com TLD when it popped up. The Otaku Revolution name lives on in remembrance of that simpler time.
