A Small Update.

2022-05-2502:24

Thank you for listening to us. We'll be back soon. I'll try to upload our episodes that never made it so you won't forget about us. Ganbatte.
It's the start of another merry month of May-azaki where we cover (almost) exclusively the many works of Hayao Miyazaki and we're starting it off with one of his Ghibli before it was technically Ghibli works: Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind! I mean, that's basically it. We talk Miyazaki and Miyazaki's work. Maybe when we run out of Hayao Miyazaki movies and anime then we'll just change Miyazaki and cover Goro. Actually maybe not. We'll probably just play Dark Souls and Elden Ring and make it Hidetaka May-azaki month. I'm sure nothing could go wrong with that.

Winter 2022 Season Review

Winter 2022 Season Review

2022-04-2502:05:14

Introducing in this episode: rampant violence! The winter months may be cold but the anime is (supposedly) fire enough to keep warm, right? We break down and discuss (in this order!) Akebi's Sailor Uniform, Sasaki and Miyano, World's End Harem, Sabakui Bisco, Love of Kill, and My Dress Up Darling because those were the shows we said we were gonna watch and at least one of us watched all six of them! Honestly MAYBE KINDA SORTA just prepare not to like one of us as much as you did before especially if you like Akebi or even a certain MEGA WAIFU. You know the one. I'll even include time stamps so you can skip past the Love of Kill section cause you probably didn't watch that! Or maybe you don't want to hear about how good the yaoi show is, you coward. We'll try to keep doing seasonal episodes! Sorry for such a long long draught between this and the last seasonal review! [Time Stamps for Shows] Akebi's Sailor Uniform: 5:49 Sasaki and Miyano: 29:09 World's End Harem: 46:50 Sabakui Bisco: 1:03:11 Love of Kill: 1:17:30 My Dress Up Darling: 1:27:23 You can listen to Amelia's podcast, Otaku Host Club, on Spotify by clicking HERE!

I was gonna call this episode a rehash on the old streaming episode but that would be too funny because, uh, someone showed up to record... hashed up? Is that what the cool kids say? The only drug I get high on is life (and antidepressants). We retread old ground on what we've already talked about before except now we live in an awkward future where Crunchyroll and Funimation have fused into what could only be called the Veku of anime streaming services. That's a Dragon Ball Z reference. Particularly a Fusion Reborn reference! That's right, shonen bronen. I can speak your language. We discuss the nature of streaming, anime censorship, and piracy all in one handy dandy episode. It's like sixty episodes in one!

Remember when we did this with Himouto! Umaru-chan and Neo Yokio back in 2020? Of course you don't because we had only two listeners at the time and one of them was me making sure Craig didn't screw up our audio. Well, we're trading shows again except this time with the intent not to make the other person suffer! We've grown weak and flabby with the shame of a frail constitution if this is our behavior now. Anyways, Audrey gave The Devil is a Part Timer and Matt gave Kaguya-sama: Love is War and one of these shows got A LOT of discussion and the other one was just "yeah it's alright might watch the next season" so I wouldn't be too excited if you really like both of these shows. Listen to this episode to hear some ABSOLUTE CRINGE HIGH SCHOOL ROMANCE STORIES, find out why Yu Ishigami should be your spirit animal, and learn about the shame of working at your local McRonald's.

Attack on Titan finally ends... except it doesn't again cause Final Season Part Three is on it's way in a year. At least it's not a movie, I guess. We talk the "final" episode of this part and give our tentative scores and complain about 60 hour work weeks all in one handy dandy episode! There's so much content in this episode that it's like you're getting two episodes in one except you aren't! Remember kids that real weebs don't forgive anime for beach episodes no matter what.

It's the start of APRIL and we're kicking off a series covering a very underground anime and manga series. You might've heard of it before but I don't know. It's kind of indie. Anyways we were FOOLS not to start this franchise sooner and we regret it. YOU folks all requested it and we were STUPID not to listen until now. Well, none of you really requested it but we thought we'd be IDIOTS not to cover it on our anime podcast that loves shonen anime and all that. Please as you're listening remember that everything, in the end, is just one big joke including this very podcast.

A'ight, I know this is a week late and everyone has already talked this episode out but we're just so sensitive and hurt by all the events in this episode and we just needed some time to really process everything like these wild yet tender emotions that are running rampant in our hearts from this episode and also I got food poisoning. It was my first time! It's a beautiful battle at the boats in this episode as we see scout on scout action and even edgy Hot Topic Mikasa AMV [Animal by Three Days Grace] Compilation #3 makes an appearance too! We also discuss a little Toonami and a little Adult Swim and maybe even a little Attack on Titan in this episode too! Really special content. It's kind of sad we're about to be through with the TV series (cause yeah I'm banking on a movie or something so hard) but hey! No more double episodes every week! That'll be nice. You know what else is nice? You. You're nice. I think you're cool. Message me later?

You send out a distress beacon for peeps to talk Yu Yu Hakusho and you do, as it turns out, get peeps. This week we're joined with three special guests including two shonen specialists and a Chapter Black advocator so maybe it'll be an actual good episode, yeah? It will be. All three of these guys are great and you love them and it's a solid episode. It's a deeper trek into Yu Yu Hakusho as we discuss what is considered by some (or many? I don't know) to be the best arc of the series with some of the coolest stand powers (I mean, PSYCHIC ABILITIES) and some of the most satisfying encounters so far at least in my opinion. Listen in to find out who our favorite evil portal to hell squad members are, how much arguing two men can have over Shadow the Hedgehog and anime Elvis, and JD's amazing "Texan" accent. Be sure to return your evil VCR tape with all the sins of humanity ever committed on time to your local Blockbuster!

REWIND REVIEW: Gunbuster

REWIND REVIEW: Gunbuster

Break out your VHS player and finally get that old tape of Disney's The Jungle Book unstuck from it's vice grip because we're rewinding the clock to review an anime classic! We're breaking down a marvelous major marvel of mecha in this week's episode which launched Hideaki Anno's career into the stars and super robot goodness into so many hearts! I love this show, my dudes. I'm not even gonna lie. Go watch it now. We talk mecha moé, moé mecha, and mecha malcontent all in this week's episode so even if you don't watch anime that's a season old then you should totally listen in regardless!

You know, now that we're almost at the end of the Attack on Titan journey (at least, I THINK we are) it really dawns on me that we probably should've just called this episode series something else. You can't Google ATTALK ON TITAN and expect to have it end up as a search result because Google will just think you have fat thumbs trying to type Attack. So many new friends lost that way. Speaking of lost friends, some friends murder other friends in this episode! Exciting! You can really see the moment that Connie's heart is destroyed into a thousand pieces! Thrilling! Also what kind of name is Daz? I really thought these were just filler characters who needed to be lost so that other people would feel bad but nope. Apparently they were in the same Training Corps too? I'm big stupid dumb and didn't pay attention enough.

[Warning: mild spoilers for the ending of Bleach if you care who Ichigo ends up with but you'll know it's coming] It's cannon vs. canon in this episode as we talk love... fictional anime love between fictional anime characters in fictional anime settings with fictional anime romance! Mostly. We talk our favorite fictional pairings that did and didn't happen like LeBron James x Bugs Bunny and that one guy x that one girl who kinda liked him or something. Listen in and find out what ships really set our sails (also Ro if you're reading this then please let me on your pod to talk MY BIG SHIP I would ask you personally but I'm pretty sure you hate me)!

We talk about an episode with a lot of talking this week on ATTALK ON TITAN! Do we have as much to say as the characters in Attack on Titan had to say about each other? Not really. There was an awful lot of talking but does that mean this episode is all kinds of awful? Listen in (or don't I'm not your mom) and find out!

Special thanks to animeoftheweak for requesting this week's show! One of us certainly enjoyed it a lot more than the other but who was it!? Anyways, we're talking calligraphy, iyashikei, and Barack Obama impersonation in this week's episode where we cover Barakamon! Also demons. One of us is a demon apparently.

Oh boy, it's another double feature due to poor planning and anxiety attacks! We're discussing two episodes this week and both are a part of the Connie villain arc! Truthfully, I don't really know what to put here. I'm tired. I recorded this episode somewhere different from normal and I didn't account for microphone mobility so my big head kept slamming into the mic so... there's some forehead action in this episode? Not much but it's there just so we're both aware.

You got characters. You make them fight. This is the essence of the tournament arc and also little kids playing with their action figures but in this instance we're talking about the swole super veiny beefy muscles of the Dark Tournament arc from Yu Yu Hakusho. It's got a cool name but does it have the style to rock the pompadour and shirtless flair it throws at the viewers? We'll find out by discussing amongst ourselves the things we liked, the fights we hated, and the original Shadow the Hedgehog known as Hiei. You only hate me because I bring you the truth.

Attack on Titan went back to basics in this episode as we saw plenty of Tighty Fighty and "we gotta make some bad decisions" just like in the days of yore and Connie gets his own personal villain arc as he goes to help his mommy while the march continues (even if that march is at a wonderful 10 frames per second). After the hype beast that was the previous two episodes, can this we even hope to measure up? Maybe. We talk DOA and the horrible future that could be the Attack on Titan movie finale all in this episode while talking about the episode sometimes too!

I was originally gonna call this New New to Yu Yu but that sounded really dumb so I'm not going to do that (for now unless someone tells me it a good idea then I'll totally double down forever on it). Alright so you may be looking at this title and thinking "oh wow they're gonna talk about a longer anime for once that isn't Attack on Titan wow mom go get the presents out early cause it's a Christmas miracle in February" but this is sadly not the case because Audrey isn't in this episode and it's just me talking for an hour about how much I love Kuwabara and MAYBE some Yu Yu Hakusho or something in between those long passionate declarations of undying love. So Yu Yu Hakusho. Is it good? Yeah. It's pretty good. You know that already though. It's 30 years old at this point! You don't talk about something for 30 years unless it can actually manage to hold up. How well it does manage to do that though? Pretty okay, I guess. You can just listen to the episode and find out unless the audio of a man casually going insane by rambling to himself is off putting to you at which point I'd stay away. We'll probably do this again. I hope. Maybe I can have friends join me? As if my work schedule would allow me to have friends join me on a podcast.
