Episode 579: Fall 2018 Previews #4

Anime Pulse is back, no breaks, no cuts, no more vacations... at least for the foreseeable future. IRL news comes in cold with Joseph reminding us that winter is scary, and Andrew filling us in on how his trip to Hong Kong went. Then comes the Industry News with gender swapping coffee mugs, the details of what Crunchyroll is losing, and another DBZ voice actor passes away. And lastly the Previews are still here with Joseph rolling around in fluffy demons and making babies to save the...


VG Pulse 316: Overtime Madness

This week on VGP, I’m sick and we’re unsupervised! We start off with talk of work and all that fun jive, before diving into the regular news where we discuss the current status of the arrested serial swatter, the games included on the PlayStation Classic, and the surprising arrival of Deltarune! After the news we give some excuses about why there’s no review, and then finish things off with talk of anime! All this and more up next on VGP 316! -Aki Show Notes Music Intro – Atom Bomb Baby by...


After Dark 34: When They Bone

Greetings dear listeners. It was Halloween when Ryo and Blonde recorded this. With that in mind enjoy Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni now with 92% more sex. Enjoy this "story rich" series if you can decipher what the fuck that story is of course. Recite your lines and prepare for the coming festival with this episode of Anime Pulse After Dark!


Episode 578: Fall 2018 Previews #3

Another week and another episode of Anime Pulse, bringing you yet another episode of previews for the Fall 2018 season.

Industry news comes at you with animation issues hitting a new Fall 2018 series about little sisters, a split between popular streaming services, and the amazing...


VG Pulse 315: Instant Shenanigans

This week on VGP, we have to deal with a very sleepy and somewhat delirious me! We start off with side notes about why I’m in the state that I’m in, before heading off into the news where we discuss what little bits of news we were able to find for the last two weeks (it’s been a bit of a dry news cycle, lol). After the news we head on off into the forums, before Millennium and I give two duel first looks at Super Mario Party and the ever-elusive unicorn that is the SNES Classic Edition!!...


Episode 577: Fall 2018 Previews #2

We're two episodes back in and this week we got Joseph coming in under the weather and Andrew getting ready to head back to Scotland, we also have InnocuousBlond jump on to read her comment about equality between men and women during the birth of a child. Industry news sees Joseph talk about the horrible experience con goers found at NYCC Anime Fest as well as VTubers made by prominent artists, and Andrew has a plethora of new anime seasons being announced as well as the lawsuit filed by...


After Dark 33: Hump the Dragon

Dearest listeners, we have returned. This time we're bringing you fluff and scales. The contrast is stunning. Want to know what that means? Us too. Plug into your various fantasy machines and get ready for this episode of anime pulse after dark!


Episode 576: Fall 2018 Previews #1

Aaaaaand we're back! Anime Pulse returns from its month of hiatus, and boy are we refreshed. Joseph rolls in with IRL news of his month, featuring his luck in FGO and FEH. Andrew is calling in from Octoberfest, and he cheats on Anime Pulse with his own YouTube channel; the audacity! Industry news comes in with a hot topic like Bowsette, as well as the announcement of a new Ikki Tousen anime. Lastly, Anime Pulse is back in time to start previews for the Fall season, with Joseph talking...


Popcorn Pulse 93: Rental King

Considering the recent news on the passing of Burt Reynolds, we figured we should do something of a tribute episode. Which is why we choose an Uwe Boll movie to jointly review. In the Name of the King[2007] is what happens when someone watches the Lord of the Rings and decides to push their fanfic off as a screenplay. Jason Statham is the main character who is called Farmer. Not a problem in a universe where other characters have ridiculous names like, say, the Discworld series. Quite a...


Manga Pulse 388: Re-Zelda

Which is why there can never be peace between East-asia and Oceania. On a brighter note, we will always have manga. Which seems to be in larger supply as it’s getting sent in. This saves us from having to select something and forces our hand in reviews. Mostly because we’re incredibly lazy and gladly take shortcuts. Tim reviews The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess. A manga done which appears to cover all the beats of the game. Tim finds it unsettling as Link isn’t a silent protagonist...


Popcorn Pulse 92: Getaway Maniac

As we’re getting on in episodes, we must be getting crotchety and senile. Today we’re focused on a film from the seventies when men were men and people drove nothing but muscle cars. Smoking was breathing but for cool people who didn’t do pussy things like save for retirement or plan for their future. People who did such things were clearly communist sympathizers that needed to be shipped to Cuba. Today’s joint review is The Getaway(1972). It stars Steve McQueen who’s character is...


VG Pulse 314: Overtime Chronicles

This week on VG Pulse, Kas is back in the UK! We start off with side-notes of the visit, as well as discussions about mine and Millennium’s work schedules, before we dive into the regular news where we discuss Sony finally allowing name changes… kinda… and Skybound Studios adopting and finishing Telltale’s The Walking Dead! After the news we have a three-way first look at Valkyria Chronicles 4, and finish off with talk of anime and our lack of time for it! All this and more up next on VGP...


Script 2 Script 18: The Crow

Do you, like Buzzfeed’s target audience, remember the nineties? Jnco jeans, ska band music, the discontinuation of Planters Cheezballs? Sometime we also awaken in cold sweats remembering the kids who wore The Crow makeup to school. Something Vanessa actually had in high school. Tim only saw about half a dozen people dress up as The Crow for every halloween until nineteen ninety nine. If you hadn’t figured it out already, we’re talking about the comic turned movie, The Crow. Now it’s just...


Manga Pulse 387: Totally Odd

A full request episode lays ahead. This is what happens when people send us manga. We are obligated to review it even if our personal bias says there’s no way it could be good. We will do our best to give it as fair a shake as we possibly can. But it’s really, really hard to do considering that the following two are prominently bearing the Tokyo Pop label on the spine. Tim reviews Totally Spies. It is just like any cartoon manga cash grab that was made around that time in that it’s just an...


Script 2 Script 17: Die Hard

Holiday movies suck rancid balls. That may be a controversial statement around here as we’re sure everyone reading gets quite a kick out of watching Lifetime crank out more Christmas movies than could be supported by an advent calendar that starts on Halloween. So what are you to do when people pester you what “holiday” movie you want to watch. The threat of such turds such as Jingle All the Way and The Santa Clause may make you grasp for the safety of irony and latch onto Die Hard. So you...


Popcorn Pulse 91: Rainbow Legend

Time to put on your puffy winter vests and hop into your Deloreans as we go back into the eighties and theme the episode around movies that Billy Barty appears in. This time at Weltall’s prompting to look back at Legend(1985). In one of Tom Cruise’s earliest roles directed by Ridley Scott before he decided to butcher the Alien franchise in its crib. If nothing else it should be required viewing for Tim Curry’s performance as basically the devil stealing every second he’s on screen. Tim also...

Manga Pulse 386: RyoPuff

Fall is coming and the pumpkin spice must flow. Even so, nothing stops the flow of manga reviews. Unless it’s something like sickness, late nights working, or a projectile vomiting dog. Other than things of that nature, nothing will stop our manga vengance. Tim reviews Souzai Saishuka no Isekai Ryokouki. What happens when a nearly useless salary man die of mundanity in Japan? Usually their family dies of collective shame at being so pathetic. Out hero is given a chance by a goofy god to go...


VG Pulse 313: Telltale’s Kingdom

This week on VG Pulse, we have an IRL Kas!! We start off with side notes of Kas’s visit, before heading off into the regular news where we discuss the sad closure of Telltale Games, as well as talking about Twitch being banned in China and the PlayStation Mini! After the news we head of to the forums, and Millennium and I give a joint review of Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom! We finish off with talk of food and anime!! All this and more up next on VGP 313!! -Aki Show Notes Music Intro –...


Popcorn Pulse 90: Absolute Pussy

We like to celebrate landmarks in our show sometimes. Especially considering how long it can take to get to any particular number as we alternate. So we decided to do a movie that neither of us have seen before but is infamously bad, widely mocked, and is often seen on a list of terrible super hero movies. We’ll give you a hint, it’s not from the nineties. We did Catwoman[2004] together and just shortly after the anniversary of the release date. And hey, it’s the ninetieth episode which,...


After Dark 32: Knights of the Pound Table

Greetings dear listeners. Ryo and Blonde and a mishap last week and also Ryo was dying so the episode is a week late. But never fear, your hentai is here! It's here to save you from a fire that broke out for some reason. Swear an oath and enjoy this episode of Anime Pulse After Dark!
