End of the Year Potpourri Spectacular!

Shane and Curtis tackle the pop culture of December 2018 in this end of the year special. We've got Captain Marvel, Gundam, LGBTQ representation in anime, Netflix, My Hero, She-ra, Lord of the Rings, and more! Programming note: UNinFORMED Anime will be taking a short end of year hiatus after this episode due to the holiday season and ever changing schedules. We will return in January of 2019 for more Anime fun with our next episode, 91 Days episode 1. And please, give us some feedback! Did...


Episode 26 - Ping Pong the Animation

Ping! Pong! Ping! Pong! Smack that ball back and forth until one person overzealously smashes the ball at an impossible speed and ruins the game for everybody. The guys tackle Ping Pong the Animation, a fun anime following the rise (and fall???) of a high school pingpong master. Maybe. Lots of potpourri this episode, actual anime talk starts about 20 minutes in for those that don't want to listen to us rant about Dragonball Super manga vs anime. Series: Ping Pong the Animation Episode: 3


Episode 25 - Erased

It's a race against time itself as the guys go back in time to try and change the past. At least, that's what they think happens in Erased, an anime that's a serious day in the life show until about halfway through. Also a big discussion on media and literary critique. This show's totem would be a Gunpla. Series: Erased Episode: 8


Episode 24 - Hajime No Ippo: New Challenger

Let's get down to business, to defeat pervy guys! Did they send me boxers, when I asked, for giant fighting robots? The guys tackle Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger, their first sequel series and take on antiquated sexual mores that make them pretty uncomfortable. Oh, and lots of ancillary talk this week too. Series: Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger Episode: 13


Episode 23 - Planetes

A dub??? That's right! Shane and Ryan tackle Planetes, an anime that was so difficult to find online that they could only find the dub. Bets on if they talk about Gundam this week? Series: Planetes Episode: 7


Episode 22 - Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

Melodrama and mecha, what more could you ask for. Sunrise present this... hey, wait a minute... That kind of sounds like Gundam. The guys tackle Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion but end up segueing into Gundam talk. Are you really surprised at this point? Series: Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Episode: 19 (Island of the Gods)


Episode 21 - Kemono No Souja Erin

How do you catch em all if you don't have pokeballs? The guys tackle animal husbandry, the show with a lot of detours. The first ten minutes are more Gundam talk, spilling over from last week! Series: Kemono No Souja Erin Episode: 37


Episode 20 - Gundam Build Divers

Shane's gone! Quick! Let's watch that Gundam show he really hates. Which one is it again? MMO Mobile Suit nonsense continues as Curtis and Ryan tackle Gundam Build Divers, a show where we still don't know what makes a Gundam a Gundam. (Sorry we switched the schedule up!) Series: Gundam Build Divers Episode: 23


Episode 19 - Space Brothers (Uchu Kyodai)

The guys are back from I-Island and are ready to go to space! First, they need to navigate the intricacies of government bureaucracy and dodge symbiotes in this slice of life anime starring Two Brothers... who go to space... because they're brothers! Oh, and there's pug! It's Two Space Brothers! Series: Space Brothers (Uchū Kyōdai) Episode: 73


Bonus Episode: My Hero Academia: Two Heroes

Curtis goes Plus Ultra in this bonus movie review episode of My Hero Academia: Two Heroes. Does he love it? Probably. I mean, he's brought My Hero up on almost every pod since he started watching. Geez. I guess it's better than the incessant DBZ talk though... Series: My Hero Acadmia Movie: Two Heroes


Episode 18 - Sword Art Online

Jack In!! UNinFORMEDAnime.EXE, transmit! Ryan and Shane tackle Sword Art Online in this patented Very Special Episode, a show Curtis watched when he was bored in grad school. Will they master the art of dual wielding in time to clear the 75th floor? Or will the weight of all the cliches overwhelm them? Series: Sword Art Online Episode: 9


Episode 17 - Fairy Tail

Brightly colored characters utilizing unique skills competing in a tournament. If you can tell me the name of the anime I'm describing, I'll give you $100. I mean, not really. In this case, the guys tackle Fairy Tail, a show that's not as good as My Hero Academia or really any of the other shonen stuff we've watched before. Just go watch literally anything else, please. Series: Fairy Tail Episode: 159


Episode 16 - Mushi-Shi - Next Passage -

Once upon a time, there were some bird spirit things that hid in shells when there was an ocean disaster on the way. Maybe it's an allegory, maybe it's all literally happening, who knows! The guys tackle Star Trek the Next Generation... wait, no... The guys tackle Adventure Time... hmmm. Well, this is an interesting one. Series: Mushi-shi - Next Passage - Episode: 2


Episode 15 - Revolutionary Girl Utena

You say you want a revolution well, you know, we all want to ride an elevator into the sky while we transform into cool combat costumes. The guys tackle Revolutionary Girl Utena, their first foray into the magical girl genre! Do they know the tropes? Kinda. But this looks like it might be a subversion of those tropes. We don't know! That's the point of the show! Series: Revolutionary Girl Utena 1997 Episode: 29


Episode 14 - Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad

For those about to rock, we hope you like high school melodrama! The guys tackle Beck, a pretty straightforward story of a band performing its final show and then breaking up! Hey, that's actually the plot of That Thing You Do, starring perpetual favorite Tom Hanks. You should definitely watch that movie. It's not anime, but it's still really good. Series: Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad (2004) Episode: 25


Episode 13 - Your Lie In April

Woof, this one's a downer, huh? I mean, it's probably going to be hard to make jokes about such a serious show. Surely no jokes about stangely timed affairs or ghost children. The guys tackle Your Lie in April, a show that might be about the perils of growing up and the difficulties we face, or it might be a prequel to one of the other shows we've watched. Series: Shigatsu Wa Kimi no Uso (Your Lie in April) - 2014 Episode: 20


Episode 12 - Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World (2003)

Breathe in... and out. In... and out. Close your eyes and relax as the guys tackle Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World, otherwise known as Kino's Journey. A nice palette cleanser of a show where things are perfectly normal and there aren't any magical crystals or gods, just talking motorcycles. Huh. Ok then. Couldn't go one show without something coming out of nowhere. Series: Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World - 2003 Episode: 8


Episode 11 - Fate/Zero

Re-roll. Re-roll. Re-roll. Look, you can't start a gacha game without a top tier character, right? The guys tackle Fate/Zero, a part of the apparently massive Fate saga about... sexy historical figures. All I can picture is that sexy dugtrio picture now. You know, the one where he's super buff underground? This is that show. Series: Fate/Zero - 2012 Episode: 14 (Season 2, Episode 1)


Episode 10 - One Punch Man

Who would win in a fight, Saitama or Papa Smurf? The guys tackle these kinds of questions while watching one of the most popular shows today! It's One Kamehaha Man. I mean One Punch Man, a show about superheroes and a striking parody of shonen anime, kinda. Series: One Punch Man - 2015 Episode: 9


Episode 9 - Gosick

Time for a detour from silly fantasy and into a very realistic depiction of World War I. With a giant ghost Virgin Mary statue. Hm. I feel like maybe that wasn't actually a part of World War I? Did the history book skip over this section? The guys tackle Gosick, an anime that's definitely very serious and not at all about cults and ghosts. Maybe. Series: Gosick - 2011 Episode: 16
