Time to leave my desk and head out to another public venue in Anaheim, CA, called Anime Impulse.

This venue travels along California and in Arizona, with a host of vendors both small and large. Some of these vendors, especially at the Artist Alley, may be local to the area where it appears. It also has several voice actors from a variety of entertainment media, mostly anime and video games.

This week, I roam around Anime Impulse, trying to find people to interview about video game music. Half the people I asked hardly listened to VGM at all, which I admit left me starving. With a handful of interviews recorded, we’ll also be listening to a block of tracks from games and anime mentioned. My thanks to those who gave their time to be interviewed.

Enjoy these tracks, despite my frustration and nervousness in finding people…
