We're joined by our good friends Danny and K from the Anime is Lit! podcast to sell a bunch of unwatched anime to one another, as well as catch up on normal conversation and what shows we're watching this season. Oh, and lots of jokes are made along the way.
We're breaking from the formula this week: revisiting our regular segment "My Oh no, Anime! List", examining some anime that are having their 20th anniversary in 2017, and answering a LOT of your listener questions!
We're at the midway point of the Fall 2017 season so it's time to discuss what shows we've dropped and what shows we're still wrapped up in. We also continue our new segment that we're calling My Oh no, Anime! List where this time around, we discuss Rurouni Kenshin.
Marc takes a deep dive into horror manga author and artist Junji Ito and his long-form works, and analyzes what makes them so unique.
Patrick takes a look at why TV anime studios are producing more films nowadays, and why that results in a steady stream of original content.
Music for this video in order of appearance:
Tofubeats - I Believe in You (Cherryboy Function Remix)
Patlabor is without a doubt one of anime's most under-appreciated franchises. Join Marc in this video tour, as he takes you through the history and legacy of Patlabor: A Forgotten Franchise.
The summer anime season is here in a big way, so of course we had to talk about it in-depth. That's pretty much the entire show this time around, so settle in and let's talk about some anime.
All intro/break/outro music for this episode is by Toshiki Kadomatsu and can be found on YouTube: Intro: Lucky Lady Feel so Good Break: Fly by Day Outro: Take You to the Sky High
We have one final AX wrap-up video to annoy you with, featuring some interviews with the likes of the Anime is Lit! podcast, and good friends of the show Steven Shifke and Claude Ashton. Check out the description on YouTube for all relevant info,
Day 2 was by far our busiest day of the convention as we saw, among other stuff, the world premiere of the FLCL 2 trailer, 3 new Trigger properties announced, and much, much more. Check out our recap video then hit the jump for our individual takes.Read More
Day 1 was a pretty busy day for us splitting ends and going to industry panels, and as a result hearing and seeing some exciting stuff. Watch our short roundup video and then catch Marc and Patrick's takes after the jump.Read More
Macross hasn't come to the United States or really any western territory in over 20 years. In our new video Patrick takes you through why that is, and why the American company Harmony Gold is holding us all back.
It's time for us to sit down and listen to some new additions to our anime vinyl record collection. Featuring selections from Macross, Ghost in the Shell, Space Cobra, Armored Trooper VOTOMs, Devilman, Perfect Blue and more! PSA there's some audio sync issues in the latter half of the video so sorry about that :L
We recorded two of our Holiday Matsuri 2016 panels and here's the first one! Look forward to the other at a later date.
Enjoying DRIFTERS but wondering who the hell Abe no Seimei is? Wonder no longer, cause we've got the deets!
It's time for us to join the R E V O L U T I O N. That's right, we were able to strap on the ole PSVR headset and take a look at some of the good, the bad and the downright weird of Playstation VR. Come hang out as we experience a Touken Ranbu stage show, get motion sick playing Rez: Infinite, get terrified playing Thumper, then get creeped out trying to teach a high school girl kanji that we don't even know in Summer Lesson. It's a fun time, so let's LINK START!
It's been a while, but we have a new short video for you! Join us as we take a walk through the short but broad history of cycling anime.
