In the spirit of this proclamation, we at Pamachu Productions would like to welcome each of you to Crap Fic Theater. We are dedicated to crafting first-rate audiobook productions of some of the -- ahem! -- more infamous works of anime fanfiction produced on the internet. Of course, the expansive network of terrible fanfiction curdling in every corner of the internet is far too intimidating for one person to handle; for this reason, I hope to focus my attention on the flabbergasting and exasperating, the bad and the goddamn beautiful, the most dreadful of the dreadful. In other words, we're going to create audiobooks of those precious few fanfics that have attained some "cult status" as the cherries atop the proverbial shit-sundae. Think of us as the Criterion Collection of garbage anime fanfiction. The audio technicians and dramatists at Pamachu Productions promise to deliver (at an irregular schedule... hey, until this starts paying bills, that is!) two fists full of furious fanfic entertainment; we are your tour guides through a rich, borderline traumatic history of garbage fanfiction.

"Specialis Revelio" is the spell to reveal an object’s hidden secrets or magical properties, and that’s exactly what we do on this podcast. We’ll be starting at the beginning of the series and taking you through chapter by chapter, making connections with later books and revealing hidden things we haven’t discovered yet. We’ll also be uncovering some questions we never thought to ask. I’d like to note that this podcast is meant for diehard fans rather than brand new readers. Even though we'll be going chapter by chapter, we won’t be touching on everything that happens since most listeners will have read the books multiple times. There will also be spoilers galore. We’ll mostly be focusing on connections between later books, new findings and questions for discussion, news and a little trivia for fun!
