Another episode! Another batch of shows! Another bunch of first impressions and thoughts! In this episode we're covering Higehiro, To Your Eternity, Osamake, Shadows House, Zombie Land Saga Revenge, Godzilla S.P., Koikimo, Vivy: Flourite Eye's Song, SSSS Dynazenon, Pretty Detective Club, and Combatants Will Be Dispatched! There's a lot of "meh" feelings in this episode but that's why we have first impressions cause we don't know what a lot of these shows will end up like, you know? It doesn't mean that Amelia isn't wrong about To Your Eternity though cause she is. Speaking of Amelia, you can catch her on YouTube at www.youtube.com/c/MOESODA and on her podcast Otaku Host Club with her co-hosts Geoff and Dan!

We're doing Friday episodes for a minute cause we just had so much content we wanted to pump out but just didn't have the Tuesdays in the month for it. When Brad says you can do seasonal previews, you do seasonal previews! After the banging season that was Winter 2021, how do you come back from that? What can you possibly throw out that means anything compared to what we just got? Well, Spring 2021 is here to try and hook us with the shamisen, tan bully waifus, and even more slime! We watched all we could and we're talking about it in this (first) episode including 86, I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level, Dragon Goes House Hunting, The Slime Diaries, Tokyo Revengers, Mars Red, Don’t Toy With Me Miss Nagatoro, Those Snow White Notes, Full Dive: The Ultimate Next-Gen Full Dive RPG Is Even Shittier than Real Life!, and Odd Taxi! Is any of this crap actually good are is it all just aimless fluff to distract you from the fact that you're going to die some day? It can be both! It can be good yet also keep the creeping thoughts that soon the grip of death will coil its hand tightly around your life and remove you from this mortal coil!

We're dedicating this whole month to anime's most well known (and possibly greatest) auteur: Hayao Miyazaki! In this merry month of May-azaki, we're going to be seeing where Mr. Miyazaki started from and where he ended up as we review four of his movies from his very first (this very episode you're about to be listening to or might be listening to already, I dunno) to his latest! In this episode, we're discussing his feature length film debut: Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro! We break down all the fun things that Miyazaki brought to the Lupin lore and what this movie brings out in us as well as all the little things we enjoyed including clock towers, Wikipedia articles, and whimsical castles! Does this film stack up against Lupin III: The First or is it just an overhyped piece of adventure cinema that has been overblown by time because of the name attached to it? I mean, it's Miyazaki so you know it's not gonna be the latter option but I have to raise the stakes or why would you listen? This description business is rough.

Imagine this: some crazy CGI god has the audacity to force you to fight for his job (which he isn't really that great at) with your future predicting cell phone while this kinda crazy kinda hot girl that you casually said at one point that you might marry murders anyone who would make the foolish mistake of even breathing the same air as you? If you can imagine that then congrats! You can kind of imagine this week's episode (and also you have a great imagination, I'm so proud of you) of WAS IT THAT HYPE (name subject to change) where we talk all about Mirai Nikki (or The Future Diary if you wanna call it that). We're talking all about how much we love Yuno Gasai, how much we don't love Yukiteru Amano, and Brad comes to the revelations that he might be the very thing he despises. Is Mirai Nikki an actual classic or is it just coasting on its pure edge? We'll probably find out all about that and more in this week's episode!

Netflix dropped a new "anime" so you know we had to talk about it especially since it's an adaptation of a manga which means that the fact it isn't like the manga is basically the only thing Matt talks about. Don't you get tired of hearing "well, in the manga" all the time? Yeah, there's like five episodes and they're all basically ten minutes long but we can stretch this out content! We're discuss all of Tatsu's hilarious antics and what makes a good adaptation and a little bit about Eragon too! I'm super tired so I'm wrapping this up. Have a great time or something!

We're back at it again with the seasonal reviews and we have 11 shows to discuss and talk about this time which I guess is an okay number for doing this seasonal watching thing. We also have time stamps so you can skip all the useless stuff like us talking about our day and lives and favorite things and our actual thoughts and all our hopes, dreams, and fleeting ambitions. You know. All the stuff that no one cares about. We also have our seasonal correspondent Amelia from the Otaku Host Club podcast and her soon to be hit YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/MOESODA) back so it's an extra fun episode too! Listen in and find out what in this packed season was actually worth watching according to Matt and Amelia while Brad interjects every now and then! Can you believe that he watched like 7 shows this time last year but only 2 this one? The competitive sport of seasonal anime watching really does destroy the most promising athletes. It's tragic. He can barely walk now. I see him gazing out the windows of his room every now and then. His face echoes a sentiment he has long since abandoned of chasing waifus and love that he will never be able to grasp now that he's confined to his wheelchair. He was so young and full of promise but it was ripped away from him in just the blink of an eye. Anime truly is hell.

We're back at it again with the siscon anime so you know we had to get someone else involved to suffer with us! If we just covered these shows by ourselves then it would be just two guys creepily discussing all the ways that incest is cool (or not cool, I GUESS) or something but if we get other people involved then we're not absolutely culpable for all the weirdness that happens and we can totally deviate all blame onto them or something. We got Courtney and Karl from the Strictly Series (that includes the Strictly Anime and Strictly JoJo podcasts which you should totally go check out right now don't even finish reading this sentence do it now k thanks) to check out 2018's prestigiously bad siscon anime My Sister, My Writer and it was a ride. Or maybe it wasn't? I have to leave like a hook or a line or something that will make you curious and check out the episode, yeah? That's what being a good showman is all about and the circus has definitely come to town in this anime as we see and talk all about characters with eyes that pop right out of their head and girls who have just the kind of oppai that make just the kind of noises that make you question the physical world around you. Listen in and see if this show is just enough bad to be good or if it's just too good at being bad! Be sure to check out the Strictly Series network of shows and see all of their info by visiting their website at www.thestrictlyseries.com and follow them on Instagram at @thestrictlyseries and Twitter at @strictlyseries. You can find both of their podcasts, Strictly Anime and Strictly JoJo, wherever you get your podcasts including Apple, Spotify, Google, and Amazon!

It is finished (for now)! No more double episodes! We had a lot of fun but all good things have to be put on hold as we conclude the first part of Attack on Titan's final season and think a little bit about just how we got here but it's mostly more Pieck discussion. Does she lose points for saving Gabi? Yeah but she's still best girl. It was a ride up to this point, though it had some ups and downs, and we enjoyed getting to hang out with you each weekWe.  can't wait for when Attack on Titan returns so we can talk about it with you folk again!

Does a show being sad actually make it hype? From a literal standpoint, no. It's very hard to rave with tears in your eyes. That said, we already picked a terrible name for this series of episodes and we have to keep to it so... Here's our episode on Angel Beats! Is it a trip to anime hell, anime heaven, or anime purgatory? Technically, it's the last one but I'm tired. Listen in, hear us talk about the meaning of life or something, and just hang out or something, I guess. I'm tired. I can fix this description later, right? Does anyone actually read this? Secret pro play tip in the show notes: crack a raw egg in your fresh and hot steamed rice to make it super creamy and delicious! It's really good! I don't even like egg and I do it! Bet you're really psyched that you read the description now, right? Come back next week for more cooking tips in the next Otaku Melancholy episode description section!

It's Attack on Zeke-tan (that sounds better out loud) as we get double episodes both kinda focusing on the Monke Titan's bearded boi. The gears are really moving in this double feature with friends and foes breaking their ties with one another and even breaking a few bones in the process too. With one more episode due, this final season of Attack on Titan is burning it's plot fast as we see all the pieces fall into place for Paradis to change... And maybe not for the better. Listen in to this episode and fill your ears with out thoughts of what these episodes mean and how we think the story might wrap up for AoT. Also included is a rant on Zack Snyder's Justice League for free too!

Made in Abyss

Made in Abyss

2021-03-1601:25:10

We stare into the Abyss in this episode as we discuss the adventures of Riko (no relation to Starship Troopers Riko) and Reg (no relation to that other Reg you might know) as they delve deep into the cursed Abyss to find Riko's mother and why Reg is part Go Go Gadget Extendo Arm and how they maybe should've packed some extra bottles of club soda to get all those pee and blood stains out of their sheets in 2017's classic Made in Abyss! You might want to get advice from your local religious leader because this episode is especially hole-y! I hope you'll dig it! I'm gonna keep shoveling this hole puns at you cause I've got plenty of this dirt and... Yeah, that's it. We discuss stuff. You know how it goes. Is Made in Abyss good? Yeah. I mean, we all know it is. What we don't know is why Sentai Filmworks wants to charge me 20 dollars to rent a movie and I'm not going to let this go at all. ANSWER ME YOU COWARDS. TELL ME WHY I HAVE TO PAY TWENTY DOLLARS TO SEE THE COOL WHITE WHISTLE DO BAD THINGS.

We go 1v1 with the creative process in this episode as we figure out just what characters we'd put in our version of anime Smash Bros! It's in the title but also I'm just clarifying for any mild confusion. We decide who is "classic" and "iconic" enough to be put in the illustrious roster of this imaginary game that we concoct and one of us also throws a character from 2020 just because. So who is really Smash-worthy and who is assist trophy worthy? We answer part of this question as we wavedash ourselves right into a corner and jump off the map as we try to pick characters, move sets, stages, and even a little bit of taunts in this episode! It's fun.

Heaven got a new angel in this episode... right? I mean, someone got something. I don't know if you get rejected from going to heaven just because you made someone eat their own "stuff". It doesn't say that you can't not do that in any religion, yeah? Anyways, stuff actually kinda happened in this episode and we actually kinda talk about it. I think a lot of this episode is us sincerely praising Attack on Titan though. Pull up your special chair for this episode and don't blow up if we miss the point in this episode of Attalk on Titan!

Lupin the Third: The First

Lupin the Third: The First

2021-03-0201:03:26

Since the dawn of time, man has asked: "if it's completely CG, does that still make it anime?" Many wars have been fought and so much blood has been shed seeking for the final answer to this cursed question. You cannot convince me that The War of the Roses wasn't about anything else. Anyways, Lupin the Third pops his head out and says "I'm gonna refuel the fires of war once again" and now here we are watching a CG anime(?) all about the latest exploits of the master thief and SWEET LITTLE BABY JESUS WITH HIS BABY EINSTEIN EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS AND GERBER'S BABY FOOD MADE WITH REAL ORGANIC FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. This movie is absolutely gorgeous. But is it good? Looks can only get you so far because you have to have a personality too if you actually want to make anything of yourself. Unfortunately I don't have either but does Lupin the Third: The First have what it takes to be a modern masterpiece or is it just all thrill with no kill? We talk all about this and a lot more including Fujiko Mine's ara~ and what series we think could have another solid CG adaptation.

I'm not doing spoiler buffer for this one. I'm about to drop some real truth that you need to hear. THAT HORSE IS 2021'S BEST ANIME CHARACTER, YO. Calling it right now so just go ahead and check on me in a year when that horse wins my best boy/girl in the OtaMel Aniwards or whatever. Anyways, in this episode, we get a lot of Falco and Gabi and that's okay, I guess. We talk about the obvious lessons that we've already learned (like not to be racist), we defend season two of Attack on Titan for some reason, and we discuss the creativity bankrupted nature of a certain "wizarding world" author. It just kind of descends into that. I'm tired. I got this new tea and it tastes really good but it just relaxes me too much so now I can't even finish these descriptions without yawning.

WAS IT THAT HYPE?: K-on!

WAS IT THAT HYPE?: K-on!

2021-02-2301:24:04

Joined by our friend SilentKitten from our Discord (and real life too, I suppose), we join the light music club and rock out to some of our favorite moements (it's a combination of moe and moments!) and ask if 2009's K-on! really is worth being one of the popular anime of that year and maybe in general. Which girl is best? Which girl is worst? Which girl is most mediocre? Why does Ritsu's forehead make me feel weird things? We dive into a discussion on what makes moe and what makes for some great cute comfort as we talk all about the beloved KyoAni's past works and compare them to each other just to see what works and just what doesn't. Is this anime really worth the time or a vast majority of weebs just suckers for moe blobs? You should definitely listen in and find out although I don't think we really answer it but I'm trying to wrap up this episode description so hey. The bottom text is where nothing interesting happens. I doubt anyone really ever reads it anyways.

Why, hello. I see you're here ready to listen to another episode of Attalk on Titan. Specifically, you're here to listen specifically to our discussion on episode 69. How do you feel? Are you ready for our long and hard discussion on (episode) 69? I bet you are, you naughty weeb. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Anyways, that's enough immature spoiler buffer. Badly timed flashbacks, bandage revelation, and pregnancy reveals galore in this episode of AoT! That's all the ingredients for an awful soap opera and we're gonna break that down as we dive into another rousing talk on one more massive lore dump episode of Attack on Titan! Well, it's as rousing as any other talk that involves 69, I guess. Hey yo! Ba dum tss.
