Megalo Box

9/12/2018
More
In a world of contrasts, megalo boxing seems to be the one unifying sport regardless of social standings. It's the classic tale of the underdog who goes form being "Junk Dog" to becoming Joe. In this dog eat dog world the podcast tries it's best to keep the conversation on track as we follow Joe's remarkable journey and sacrifice for that one shot at eternal glory.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

9/5/2018
More
The podcast takes a crack at Mamoru Hosoda's critically acclaimed sci-Fi drama, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Most of our issues with this film probably stem from the obvious fact that we aren't the target demographic. Two men watching a teenager using her powers of time travel to solve first world teenager problems regrettably wasn't a huge source of entertainment. Nevertheless we still celebrate and recognize the skill and craftsmanship that went into creating this movie.

Darling in the franXX - THE END

8/13/2018
More
If you're still not fed up with Darling in The FranXX our podcast did a quick rundown of the series. A more extensive discussion is also in the works, scheduled for late August. We apologize for the lack of content.

Yuru Camp

7/9/2018
More
In a world where it never rains on camping trips the cutest and most unlikely duo demonstrate the joys of camping so you don't have to. Yuru Camp is honestly one of our favorite shows of 2018.

A Weekly Viewcast - Darling in the FranXX ep 20

6/10/2018
More
Darling in the FranXX is rapidly approaching its conclusion, but the show seems fine with replacing a nondescript organisation with an extraterrestrial nondescript organisation. Recorded in an early morning low energi session, appropriate enthusiasm was probably lacking as we discussed the events of ep. 20.

Summer Wars

6/4/2018
More
A rogue AI takes over the internet in Mamoru Hosoda's Summer Wars. The podcast try and fail to keep an interesting dialog going, but ultimately come up short in regards to family values and the dangers of AI.

Hunter x Hunter Greed Island

5/31/2018
More
On our 4th episode covering Hunter x Hunter we discuss Greed Island, a diabolical "videogame" for hunters, made primarily to develop Gon's Nen. One would think that as a father Ging would have a moral obligation to raise his son, but with this game he probably thinks he's sidestepped that responsibility. All in all, it does make for a lighter toned playful arc in preparation for the grimmer, grittier chapters ahead.

A Weekly Viewcast - Darling in the FranXX ep.19

5/27/2018
More
The life and lies of Doctor Werner Frank. A character hardly explored takes the center stage of the 19th episode. As this series continues it's absolute incomprehensible storytelling. The podcast soldiers on :3

Redline

5/25/2018
More
When you spend seven years making an anime it's paramount it succeeds. Regrettably that was not the case for Studio Madhouse's immaculately crafted Redline. Hear us speculate the reasons why it didn't fill cinemas, and lament the fact that we will probably never see projects as ambitious ever again.

A Weekly Viewcast - Darling in the FranXX ep 18

5/21/2018
More
The tale of two weddings and the lesbian subplot - The hosts from The Casual Anime Podcast dives deep into the rushed pairing of Mitsuru and Kokoro, and makes their prediction that there will be a massive showdown some episodes down the road.

A Weekly Viewcast - Darling in the FranXX ep. 16 & 17

5/13/2018
More
The weekly viewcast makes it's triumphant return while Karsten tries his hand at Photoshop. :3 Coming of the hype of episode 15 it seems almost inconceivable that ep. 16 could fail to capitalize on any of it. This is truly the darkest timeline.

A Weekly Viewcast - Darling in the franXX 15

4/25/2018
More
The podcast has a lot of praise for the 15th episode, and that is certainly a welcome change. This episode cashes in on all the pent-up feelings this show has accumulated over a 15 episode runtime. As the opening music is played over the final fightscene you somewhat lose the motivation to scrutinize this episode with a fine-tooth comb, and basically accepting that sometimes the whole can be a lot better than the sum of its parts.

Perfect Blue

4/23/2018
More
The podcast makes a royale mess of analyzing Satoshi Kon's debut film, Perfect Blue. Maybe it's our punishment for making something that isn't Darling in the FranXX? Incidentally ep. 15 will be out Wednesday

Darling in The FranXX - Round table discussion w/Ian

4/21/2018
More
We join forces with Ian from the Retro Anime Podcast for a roundtable discussion of Darling in The FranXX. With his considerable knowledge of mecha genre we gain valuable insight and perspective into a series that had become rather stale. Does this mean the weekly viewcast perceivers? Tabun ~

A Weekly Viewcast - Darling in the FranXX ep. 11 12 13

4/13/2018
More
Being three weeks delayed we cram episode 11, 12 and 13 into one incoherent podcast. Now that we are all caught up, our weekly format will resume as normal.

Porco Rosso

4/2/2018
More
"When Pigs Fly " is a common figure of speech that might need some revision after watching this movie. Overall not Miyazaki's best work by any stretch, and certain childhood illusions were definitely shattered by this rewatch.

Kakegurui

3/29/2018
More
It seems quite fitting that this week's topic, an anime about gambling, was chosen on a whim. Face-contortion with high stakes could definitely been an alternate title, and seems to be the name of game as the podcast casts the die on studio MAPPA's Kakegurui.

The eve before easter

3/24/2018
More
Before going on a brief hiatus we recorded a quick podcast were we announce future plans and discuss everything we couldn't fit in a regular episode. Weekly episodes of Darling will be back for episode 13.

A Weekly Viewcast - Darling In The FranXX Ep 10

3/19/2018
More
Episode 10 and watcher’s fatigue is rapidly setting in. What is probably supposed to be an episode with shock value feels more like A-1/Trigger’s overly convoluted way of saying “we don’t understand pacing”. This show needs to seriously pick up pace to not end up as the innuendo collab show that failed.
