Death Parade

4/18/2019
More
As if dying wasn't depressing enough, the arbiters of the underworld aren't an especially cheery bunch either. For being the Japan's answer to St. Peter at the pearly gates, these stoic individuals are surprisingly bad at their jobs. It is in this prosess of judgement Death Parade inserts itself as we follow people of varying degrees of sinfulness face their final(?) judgement.

One Punch Man

4/3/2019
More
Despite a slight delay the podcast finally covers the anime that could arguably be defined as the best widely accessible "gateway anime". Hopefully that is a sentiment that will still remain true even after season 2 is finally released. If rumors and public reception is to be believed, it seems quite obvious that preview footage and general marketing for the new season has done irreparable damage to One Punch Man's spotless reputation.Luckily that controversy will remain a topic for later...

Maquia

3/20/2019
More
Mari Okada's 2018 fantasy drama is an array strange timeskips, broken promises and tragic goodbyes. Although this film seems to have certain underlying messages about motherhood, sanctity of life and the compassionless ebb and flow of time, it is rarely consistent and would almost seem that narrative is at odds with itself. I guess it just goes to show that you never really stop being a parent no matter what happens.

Wolf Children

3/6/2019
More
The Casual Anime Podcast once again tries their hand at a Mamoru Hosoda film. Although this film seems far more relatable (to us) than his other work, this film is adamantly targeting the primordial parental instinct, thereby making it less about "coming of age", and rather more about "coming to terms" with your children growing up.

Mob Psycho 100 S2 Preview

2/23/2019
More
Mob is back, but certainly not with a vengeance. He is just his usual self going trough the motions of puberty in a body exploding with psychic potential. It seems evident that success follows in the wake of web manga creator ONE and his bizarro take on the classical hero franchises. Season 2 of Mob Psycho 100 is no exception, and might be a AotY contender when 2019 comes to a close.

Domestic Girlfriend Preview

2/14/2019
More
Tune in to a 3 episode preview of the morally dubious show Domestic Girlfriend. 3 episodes is probably also all you'll need to figure out that this is no fairy tale romance and that people will get hurt. Our podcast is slightly delayed, but hopefully the topics are still relevant for the currently airing show.

Roundtable Discussion with Ian | SSSS.Gridman

2/6/2019
More
For our first collaboration of 2019 we once again join forces with Ian from @retroanime to discuss Trigger's 2018 SSSS.Gridman. This series seems to be pretty decisive within the general anime community. A divide probably created by the tokusatsu inspired settings, and is only amplified by the extreme high and low points this series hits.

Dororo Preview

1/30/2019
More
Dororo is shaping up to be one of the hottest new anime of 2019. Being solely judged on the merits of 3 episodes this is certainly a show that leaves an excellent first impression, and still leaves room for potential development. True greatness seems within reach.

Harmony

1/27/2019
More
In a dystopian future who could have guessed that the World health Organisation would be a proprietor of a totalitarian regime that provides you perfect health in exchange for your silent obedient consent. Harmony tries it's hand at a wide variety of animation techniques without particularly mastering any, and being pretty average across the board seems to be a recurring theme for this film.

A Weekly Viewcast | Goblin Slayer Conclusion

1/16/2019
More
A new season of anime is a foot, so it only seems appropriate that we wrap up the previous season in a timely manner. While it didn't break into any favorites lists Goblin Slayer certainly left an impression on the 2018 Fall anime season, and for better or worse it seems we just can't to stop talking about it.

The Secret World of Arrietty

1/11/2019
More
It seems it's once again time to take a look at yet another exquisitely detailed Ghilbi film. In a reverse BFG universe tiny "borrowers" are living in your house and stealing/borrowing your food without you even realizing. Depicting both sides' reaction to discovery, Arrietty casts a wide net without being especially appealing to any age-group.

Black Lagoon S1

1/3/2019
More
Another episode from the archives. Tune in as the Casual Anime podcast gets everything wrong about Black Lagoon. With the start of a new year and thus a new season it seems we will have some catching up to so. Stay tuned for coverage of the series that peaked our interest in 2018.

Tokyo Godfathers

12/25/2018
More
Sometimes the stars align to create a perfect set of circumstances that can only be described as a miracle. For 3 homeless people in Tokyo the prospect of Christmas miracles is but an unhealthy daydream not afforded the likes of them. Nevertheless, on this auspicious Christmas night dreams really do come true, but perhaps not the way they were originally envisioned.

A Weekly Viewcast | Goblin Slayer Ep 10

12/10/2018
More
The blatant theft of the works of legendary fantasy writer J.R.R. Tolkien continues in the 10th episode of Goblin Slayer. The is a certain calm before the storm as Goblin Slayer per usual neglects his harem and prepares his equipment for the inevitable next onslaught.

A Weekly Viewcast | Goblin Slayer Ep 9

12/2/2018
More
With the realization that the mirror discovered in ep. 8 is the source of the goblins in the sewers, the Goblin Slayer disposes of it in the most boring fashion imaginable. And that pretty much sets the tone of the entire episode. The tamest outcomes comes to fruition as the ragtag group move on to their next adventure.

A Weekly Viewcast | Goblin Slayer Ep 8

11/26/2018
More
Faces are revealed and innocence is lost in the 8th episode of Goblin Slayer. Despite the episode ending in a massive fireball, not a single goblin was slain that day. Could it be that the series is finally moving on to bigger and better enemies?

A Weekly Viewcast | Goblin Slayer Ep 7

11/18/2018
More
The tables seem to be turned on the goblin slayers as they walk into a trap and sustain heavy injuries. The laws of storytelling dictates that no main character can die in episode 7, but that certainly doesn't stop a certain host of the podcast getting his hopes up.

Duration:00:16:46

A Weekly Viewcast | Goblin Slayer Ep. 5 and 6

11/13/2018
More
Ep. 5 of Goblin slayer really didn't merit it's own podcast episode, so we merged it with the much more eventful ep. 6. The podcast is still decisively split in it's opinion of the show and that decisiveness will hopefully spark passionate future debates. As for the format, the weekly schedule will return as the show picks up pace.

11/8/2018
More
Fall 2018 calls for another installment of our round table discussions. Ian, from Retro Anime Podcast @retroanime was kind enough to join us in our musings as we dissect the story of 4 girls trying to reach Antarctica. This was indeed a very welcome break form the current fantasy dominated fall anime season. ‏

Vampire Hunter D - Bloodlust

10/29/2018
More
As promised and only slightly delayed, The Casual Anime Podcast discuss director Yoshiaki Kawajiri's 2001 adaptation of Vampire hunter D. A hunt to catch a "Nobel" before he can turn the girl he has kidnapped quickly devolves into a Shakespearean tale of forbidden love and unlikely alliances.
