Anime World Order Show # 167 - Beating Multiple Dead Horses Enhanced By Cybernetics

Anime World Order Show # 163 - This Episode Appropriately Delayed Due to Severe Rainstorm

Daryl and the gang review 2010?s Rainbow ? Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin, a show about criminals for which the biggest crime is how overlooked it remains. With the timing of this episode, it is likely to remain that way. Visit for full show notes and supplemental links.


Anime World Order Show # 162 - We Need More BORT License Plates In the Gift Shop

Anime World Order Show # 153 - You're STUPID Tieria, so just SHUT UP, STUPID!

Though technically it's already like a year late, we finally review Mobile Suit Gundam 00! Note: this isn't edited. Like, at all in fact.

Anime World Order Show # 152 - Nudity and Violence Instead of More Singing Is Why Anime Rocks

It's been entirely too long since we've reviewed something from before the 1980s, so we all checked out the Toei Douga 1975 film adaptation of The Little Mermaid to see how it compares to the original story...and yes, the Disney film everyone knows!
