streaming virtual hell questions

After a year without anime cons but with four online streaming Anime Hell events, I've been getting questions asking if these virtual Anime Hell shows will be available to watch online or download.

Short answer: no. 

Anime Hell is, or should be, a live event that happens at anime cons. If Anime Hell is available for everyone to watch any time, the live event that happens at anime cons won't be unique, it won't be a surprise, it won't be unexpected, and it won't be as much fun for you, or for me. 

I did four streaming events last year, all of which were in conjunction with online anime conventions. These streaming events were still available to watch for days after their scheduled broadcast. All told, I wound up doing about twice as much Anime Hell as I usually do, potentially to a vastly wider audience. 

If you happened to miss any of these events, please rest assured there will be opportunities to see Anime Hell in the near future, both streaming and hopefully, once we get this COVID thing finished, live and in person.
