The ANN Aftershow

The ANN Aftershow

We’ve long joked on the podcast about the quality of light novel writing, but the news is out that the developers of the RyokoAI project have scraped Shosetsuka ni Narou…are fully machine-generated LNs in our future?

Plus: Things get gorier in Kaiju No. 8, the world of yatagarasu politics unfolds, and the newest episode of Delicious in Dungeon introduces monster-mommy Falin.

The ANN After Show streams live on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter Spaces on Tuesdays at 6pm PT/9pm ET. You can listen to the podcast version on Wednesdays on Spotify, Apple Music, and wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts. The ANN After Show is part of the BLEAV Network.
