Description

Do you love anime? Like seriously love anime? The hosts of Otaku Melancholy do too. That's why every week they're going to bring you a discussion about Japan's animated export... and probably talk a lot of trash about each other's terrible taste in the process. From mecha to moe, no series will be left unwatched! (Except the ones we drop after episode three.) Be sure to join our Discord server at https://discord.gg/rUHYUyW to continue the conversation!

WAS IT THAT HYPE?: K-on!

WAS IT THAT HYPE?: K-on!

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. As per usual, you check out new episodes every Tuesday by going to our website at www.otakumelancholy.com to see all our links including our social media and join the Discord at https://discord.gg/rUHYUyW to continue the conversation! Moe moe kyuun~!
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.

We're talking all about therapy dogs, why you need to just shut your kids down and tell them they aren't princesses and that Santa is a corporate lie, and what it means to be the loneliest number 66 in this episode! Joined by the very big wrinkly brained hosts of The Weebology Podcast, we also talk about 2017's Scum's Wish but you know that's just a pretense for us to talk about anime dicks or something. It's all just a segue into having a conversation about anime butts at this point. It's also a Valentine's episode so maybe go listen with your partner or something? I'd do it. The sultry tones of Ethan and Rick will be the perfect thing to have in the background as you hold hands in front of the fire, you sick degenerates. I bet you don't even wear gloves when you do it. You're just asking for an anime pregnancy at that rate. So join us as we dive into another "interesting" romance anime with some of our fellow anime podcasters and go to https://weebology.buzzsprout.com to check out all of The Weebology Podcast's links to their awesome and thought provoking content! And also maybe after that go check all our links out at www.otakumelancholy.com like the ones to our socials and join the Discord at https://discord.gg/rUHYUyW to continue the conversation! Ganbatte! Happy Valentine's Day! Even though that was like two days ago! I'm still waiting on the chocolate you sent me! I'm sure it's just lost in the mail! Right???
The big info dump episodes return as we get another episode of people talking about people and how those people treat other people that they don't really see as people and how those people (who aren't considered people) feel about those people. Alright, now that the spoiler buffer is out of the way, in this episode we see the origin of the Marley heist (it's not really a heist but hey I think it sounds cool) and we see a little bit of the fallout of the loss of our dearly beloved. Also Brad was totally right about them just throwing crystal Annie in jail. That was weird.

Kizumonogatari

Kizumonogatari

2021-02-1001:22:08

The Journeymonogatari continues (after like 2 months or something, huh?) as we dive into the series of Kizumonogatari films that feature the real hottest vampire "dommy mommy", Kiss-Shot Acerola-Orion Heart-Under-Blade! And there's a lot of Tsubasa here too! But... something is definitely off about her which you'll find out all about in this episode! Hop all aboard the waifu train with us as we talk wicked cool fight scenes, awkward watch parties, and confusing time lines in this episode! I don't really know what to type for this description. I hope you'll listen to this episode even if you know nothing about Monogatari cause I think it's pretty good. Like it's a solid episode. Probably a 7.5/10 one. Definitely not an 8. Well, maybe if you crank up the speed to like 1.5x speed? Maybe it's an 8 that way. I don't know.

All these other podcasts that are doing weekly Attack on Titan episodes just immediately put THE BIG EPISODE SPOILER in the first part of their episodes description but I respect you, my dear listener, and how you're waiting for all of the last season of Attack on Titan to come out so you can binge it. Thusly, I'm gonna stall for time so this first line you see when you see this episode is posted isn't THE BIG EPISODE SPOILER. So let's chitchat. How are you? Is work going well? Is your favorite sports team winning their matches? How about those sport teams? I think this is enough buffer, yeah? You shouldn't be able to see the fact that I HATE GABI SO MUCH SHE KILLED POTATO QUEEN AND I WANT HER TO DIE AND IN THIS EPISODE WE TALK TOP TEN WAYS TO PUNCH GABI IN THE FACE I DON'T CARE IF SHE'S A KID SHE KILLED MY BAETATO AND SHE MUST SUFFER. NOTHING ELSE MATTERS IN THIS EPISODE BUT HOW MUCH I DON'T LIKE GABI. GOODBYE. SEE YOU LATER.

We're talking an incest anime (that isn't really incest) this time so we brought on two brothers (who aren't really brothers) to come on and talk all about the forbidden fruit of familial love (that isn't really the forbidden fruit of familiar love). We're talking all about 2019's Domestic Girlfriend (or Domestic na Kanojo if you wanna be THAT guy) in this episode in a brazen attempt to just straight up turn off one of the brothers on romance anime completely. Does it work? Spoilers: not really. This episode is still worth checking out to see the very lax Hina vs. Rui fight and to learn all about the "pedophile clique" that this show has. We also talk about our awkward first sexual experiences and we even feature like 10 seconds of a very Nickelback song (that we VERY OBVIOUSLY don't own the rights to so please don't kill me RIAA or whoever does the suing for this kind of thing) that is very special to one of the brothers and his romantic conquest of a mattress. We talk a little bit less about anime than normal in this episode but it's probably still fun, yeah? Probably. Craig laughed at part of it so you know it has to be a little good. Or maybe it isn't. I don't know what Craig likes.

Just like how the Scout Corps assaulted the Marleyans, MAPPA decided to assault our opinions on their CG skills. Not only do we get to see some hype beast Titan vs Titan vs Human vs Human battles, but we also get a nice B-story on some Titan cuisine, like BBQ and jawbreakers. Even Armin shows up to show us MLG level Alabama fishing. Oh and we talk about some CG techniques and behind the scenes production shenanigans or something. Yawn. JUST GET TO THE FOIGHTIN'!

WAS IT THAT HYPE?: Toradora

WAS IT THAT HYPE?: Toradora

2021-01-2701:20:08

Is it good? Is it bad? Whatever it is, it's Toradorable! We're starting a new series where we review the most popular show of each year (according to MAL numbers so we might easily make us look stupid in a few years or something) and reviewing them to ask the question: is this show actually that good or is it just overhyped? We're starting with 2008's Toradora which is basically just tsundere central with Taiga and other characters who are just there, I guess. Do you really care about anyone else but Taiga? Like for real? I remember the bird and the mom but I don't know if that's exactly something I SHOULD remember. I also remember that Ami is best so don't @ me, guys. We were both really tired today from a bunch of work stuff but at least we put out an episode though!

We finally get to see the War Hammer Titan in this episode! And some other things too but they're not as important as the War Hammer Titan! Some CG was on display in this episode and maybe it wasn't the best? Just maybe? I'm not judging. Well, I am but that's what this thing is, right? Like we have to judge and talk about the episodes or there wouldn't be content. Anyways, new Attalk on Titan episode! We talk about if the CG was actually THAT bad, what we think could happen in the future, and you know. More stuff. Doing this Attalk on Titan descriptions every week is exhausting. like what do I say about the show? How many more times do I have to do this? At least ten, I think. I can't wait to be done with double records EVERY week. Anyways!

I honestly thought we would've dropped out before we got to a year of doing this but here we are. There is no reason for us to survive a year of doing this really. We're taking an entire episode to talk about what happened in the past year so this kind of counts as like a recap episode or something? I mean, it's important so don't skip it like you would with anime or anything! We reflect on wrapping up what I guess is the first season of this show as we talk about why we did it, the fun experiences we had, and we get really sentimental or something. I get sentimental. Like legitimately teary-eyed. Enjoy this softer episode as we talk about the friendships, the moments, and all the things that made this year of doing the podcast an amazing one! We love our listeners and thank you so much for making us a part of your life and year or whatever! Special shout out to everyone who called in and left us e-mails! You guys are the best and I'm so stoked to get to do this with people like you.

Are we sure this show isn't actually called Attalk on Titan because good lord was there a lot of chit chat in this episode. Willy was talking, (spoiler character) was talking, Reiner was talking... Everyone was just talking. But is that a bad thing? Maybe not. I dunno. A sleep deprived Brad is featured in this episode and it is a treat just like this episode of Attack on Titan. We continue to make wild guesses, theories, and just generally made outlandish claims in this episode so you know. Put us on and welcome to the dumpster fire once more.

We watched a lot of anime in 2020. Like a lot of anime. We were stuck inside and had nothing else to do but watch anime, think about anime, and put off watching the anime we had to go through to actually have discussions for this podcast. And maybe we watched the most anime of what was actually airing in 2020, you know? So here we are giving our review of all the anime in 2020 that actually mattered (that we watched) and all the trash that robbed us hours of our precious life! We're dishing out our personal top 10s of the anime from this year and giving out a few saucy awards (saucy was the best I could come up with) including "Best Girl of the Year", "Studio of the Year", and the coveted "Anime Was a Mistake" award! Watch out though. This is another LOOOOOOONG episode so be sure to prepare a lot of housework for yourself or whatever it is that you actually do when you listen to podcasts (I like to cook while I listen, thanks for asking <3) and get ready for what is sure to be an awful collection of opinions as we close out this year.

Just as a warning, we're both tremendously drained and have kind of low energy in this episode because life just threw both of us for a wicked suplex from the top rope. That's how suplexes work, right? Well, you can't have a good season every season, right? I mean, I'm not talking about the quality of the shows in this season but about the sheer few numbers we managed to get through this time. Life happens and you can't do a whole lot but we tried at least! We'll try to do better next season and watch at least three times as many shows next season, I swear! We're talking all about the latest and last shows that graced out screens in 2020 and they were a tremendously mixed bag. In this episode, we're covering the delightful treat of Wandering Witch: Journey of Elaina, the thrilling Talentless Nana, the hilarious Sleepy Princess in Demon Castle, the touching comedy The Day I Became a God, the lovey dovey doki doki Tonikaku Kawaii, and the simply badass Akudama Drive.

It's festival arc time! Hard to believe this is Attack on Titan with all the joy in this episode? Also hard to believe since we're hardly still seeing any titans but hey. I'm not complaining; I'm just pointing it out. We see a lot more of Falco and Brad's new favorite AoT character and we learn more about the world of AoT in some fun world lore and development. That ending though! That ending! We can't wait for the next episode and if you want more of us then check out ATTALK ON TITAN every Friday and check out our regular episodes every Tuesday by going to our website at www.otakumelancholy.com to see all our links including our social media!

(This episode contains talk on sexual violence that may not be suitable for all listeners.) We had so much fun talking bad anime with these guys that we brought them on to talk good anime! We brought out friends from the Otaku Host Club to talk all about the first animated adaptation of Kentaro Miura's manga masterpiece: Berserk! We dive deep into the journey of Guts and the Band of the Hawk as they aim to accomplish Griffith's dream of... something? Yeah, I think he wants a kingdom or something. We talk all about dreams, how to make the perfect sexy time anime weeb playlist, and awkward talks on a certain character from Berserk who was thankfully removed. That's all I'm saying, folk. I don't want to get in any more trouble than I already am. Check out the Otaku Host Club's podcast every other Thursday and their Attack on Titan discussions every Monday!

Ganbatte! If there's anything you learn from this podcast then it's that you shouldn't hang out with guys named Griffith during an eclipse, kids. 
It's a big ol' flashback to the initial invasion of Paradis as we see from Reiner's perspective just what the toll of war has on the people who dive into it.  We also see a bigger amount of backstory on what it takes to be one of the Nine (just a little bit) as well as some more of Annie after about two seasons of her being largely absent. Maybe that's for the better as we see her just brutalize a bug and that's just kind of creepy. Anyways, it's a whole bunch of Reiner so if you're not a Reiner fan then what are you gonna do? A certain character does make an awesome appearance at the end of the show though and that's pretty hype! We talk about all of that and more in this week's episode of ATTALK ON TITAN!

ANIMISERY: Kodomo no Jikan

ANIMISERY: Kodomo no Jikan

2020-12-2201:19:01

Praise the sun, Animisery is over. No more of this. Last one for a long long long time. The evil is dead or at least severely hospitalized for an extended period. In this Animisery, we're covering Kodomo no Jikan and it's... Man, it's just hard. Do you think it's easy watching this? Do you think we're happy watching little kids show their panties and stuff in an anime? I'm not. I'm uncomfortable. I'm in distress. How am I gonna handle the social media for this? "Hey guys, we're talking about the show about a little kid who likes her teacher a little bit too much and tries to seduce him please share and support our podcast I promise this is a one time thing"? I don't know what I'm supposed to do here. We're doing this for the lols and I do not think anyone is laughing. Anyways, the show's about a little 3rd grader trying to seduce her teacher. Enjoy. We get uncomfortable and talk about some spicy topics so LISTENER DISCRETION IS ADVISED or something. Maybe I should put that at the top? Speaking of being on top of things, keep up with us on our website at www.otakumelancholy.com to see all our links including our social media and join the Discord at https://discord.gg/rUHYUyW to continue the conversation!
The sun saw fit to rise for another episode of Attack on Titan: The Final Season so we saw fit to talk about it! We're talking all about the trains, the strains, and the pains of this latest episode which sees the Marley gang going to their home and dropping tons and tons of lore on us! We see more discussion of the Nine and what it means to replace one of the members and Reiner reminisces on unfair potato sharing practices in this episode and we're gonna talk all about it and hopefully you'll listen! Join us to the very end for this wild ride on the Attack on Titan train on ATTALK ON TITAN!

Ah, the time loop. What was once a curse that only the most kawaii of all anime characters Bill Murray had to experience in the movie Groundhog Day is now something that almost every Japanese high school student has to go through once in their lives from the S.O.S. Brigade to Natsuki Subaru. Well, college students are no exceptions as Okabe Rintaro finds himself repeating a few days in his life trying to prevent an event he would really not see for the 100th time and also a dystopian future where a secret organization has taken over the world. Changing world lines, Okabe is on a quest to change the future and also maybe preserve his immortal metabolism since the man drinks enough soft drinks to make his pee corrosive to steel. That's Steins;Gate and that's what we're talking in this episode! It's Matt's favorite anime and he got to pick the coping mechanism this week as 2020 draws to a close and he chose rewatching his all time great for the fiftieth time! Get your Juicy Karaage Number One heated up in the Phone Microwave (Name Subject to Change) and listen in with us as we talk all about the craziness of time travel in not just anime but EVERYTHING, why you need a neko chuuni cat maid in your life, and what makes a 10 out of 10 show... if only for like a second.
