Mike Toole got into this anime thing in 1994 (yep, that makes it over 20 years!) and turned pro in 1996, working as a critic and features writer for the likes of Animerica magazine, Anime Insider, Sci-Fi Magazine, and Otaku USA. He had a stint working as a spec copywriter and web designer for the late Geneon, developing websites and writing for favorites like NieA_7 and Vandread. More recently, he's been developing extras for Discotek DVD releases, and is featured on commentary tracks for the Lupin the 3rd films Bye Bye Lady Liberty, The Hemingway Papers, and Napoleon's Dictionary. His guided commentary also features on the stand-alone DVD releases Ringing Bell, Adventures of Horus: Prince of the Sun, and the forthcoming Night on the Galactic Railroad. He's been lecturing on a variety of anime topics nearly as long as he's been a fan, and has reliably filled rooms for years with fun fare like Dubs That Time Forgot and The Worst Anime of All Time. Currently, he's a biweekly columnist and sometime podcast guest at Anime News Network, and occasional contributor to the Topless Robot geek humor blog.
