What is the Watercooler?
It's a haven in the middle of a harsh, 9-to-5 world. A place where you can gather with your fellow human beings and bond over a paper cup full of cool refreshment.
All sorts of randomness is welcome here. Post pictures, videos, special Chat information, or just discuss news and current events.

The Bootleg News Reporter said earlier that a young boy imitating a Sand Ninja attack has died, most likely due to respiratory problems (official reason has yet to be given).
While this is a sad and tragic event, it brings up a series of questions that leave some a bit uneasy. As we are the Watercooler, I ask for the opinions on this event and what might happen, if anything does, as a result of it.
How much did "Naruto" play in this event? How much did the parents? Is there going to be an upsurge to ban the program, much like "Pokemon" and "Yu-Gi-Oh" from years past? How will this event alter the perception of anime, especially ones aimed at children and pre-teens? The list goes on, but these are a few ideas to get a start.

To make things easier for the Anime Pulse guys, if you have any news to report, please post it on Bootleg News Reporter worldhttp://www.theotaku.com/worlds/bootnr That way all of the collaborated information is in one place.
For those who have information to post or just want to join, please post a comment here, so that I can add you to the guest poster list.
Thank You for your attention.
Sorry, the original post got moved when I went to modify the post, so I had to repost it. Sorry for the troubles..
After looking at how this guest poster format is set up, I think for our podcast discussions it would be easiest to create a post announcing a new episode, and then carry on with our comments and conversations in the comment box. This way things stay organized. Everyone making a new post out of their comments would be too chaotic.
If you're not already a listener of Anime Pulse, you should check out our show. With the advent of Worlds, I will now be cross-posting Anime Pulse and Manga Pulse shows on The Anime Pulse World. So go check it out, and then check out our site too!
