Episode 170 – The Pitfalls and Depths of the Industry, Consortium-Style!

4/6/2024
As of this episode going up, we’re in the middle of WrestleMania weekend, and that means many things to many people, and it means hoping that a certain someone finally “finishes his story” on Sunday so that we can all be done hearing about it. But for us, the grind continues as we put a bow on the winter season and lament the continued cannibalism of the anime industry with a tale of what happened the last time a company or two or three went under. It was a dark time. But we also have a recap of the major announcements from this year’s AnimeJapan, all the good and bad and “what is this” because we all don’t quite know everything new coming out, and also a case where ALL the monkey’s paws have curled in regards to Macross… and Disney. Convention season has also begun, so play it smart and safe if you’re going to one. intro - did you all stay up for Smiling Puppet Friends? 6:24 - the best and worst of the winter season 21:19 - main stories 45:15 - the AnimeJapan 2024 rundown 1:08:43 - other announcements 1:19:12 - home video releases 21:19 - Funimation is officially dead; a brief history of the 2007 home video crash* 36:37 - Apothecary Diaries creator indicted on charges of tax evasion 38:31 - Dragonball Super manga on indefinite hiatus 39:27 - GKIDS acquires four Mamoru Hosoda catalogue films for release 40:58 - Macross catalogue is headed to Disney+ later in 2024 44:31 - a new Sgt.

Bonus Episode: End the Crunchyroll Awards.

3/2/2024
No jokes, no hyperbole, nothing over-exaggerated - this "awards show" needs to go away and never come back. The corporate overlords at Crunchyroll can put together all of the window dressing they want, but if these events are going to continue awarding themselves and ignoring what the people at AniTrendz and Anime Corner and r/anime put the time and research into awarding then they'll be talked about in an equal manner - with corporate-focused cynicism and exhausted apathy with a whole bunch of "whatevers" to it. This bonus audio was recorded on a day off to just get the corporate nonsense from earlier this (Saturday) morning out of the way while also highlighting the Anime Corner and r/anime awards and honors for their much better and (usually) more thought-out selections. Go to the people and leave the corporations to the side. We'll be back next time to talk about more pressing matters involving Crunchyroll - namely, THAT interview from The Verge. It won't be fun.

Episode 168 – The February of Our Discourse Discontent.

2/20/2024
As we inch closer and closer out of the winter doldrums, we find more and more cases of rabid internet discourse popping up and it just makes us ask one thing: whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. We don't like talking about these things, but alas, it is our duty to discuss certain elements of discussion with these topics, namely the topic of what NOT to do when you're working on a major anime dub production (yes, THAT) as well as the unknown future of a post-Funimation world with that side of the service set to shut down and sunset on April 2nd. Not a very fun time, right now. But we can take solace in the fact that the five-year "LOLsuit" saga seems to finally be at an end, AnimEigo is under new and well-known ownership, and Crunchyroll has more than four Blu-ray releases set to come out in May for the first time in a while. See, it's not ALL bad, it's just sorta bad. But we'll all wade through the murky waters together, and our good friend Sketch is back to fill in for this treacherous journey. P.S. March may be a bit spotty with shows due to some outside circumstances. Apologies in advance. intro - a reminder that it’s tax season 4:59 - news items 48:42 - announcements and updates 1:05:31 - home video releases 4:59 - dissecting the very stupid Lovely Complex discourse 21:22 - Funimation’s funeral is set for April 2 33:44 - THE END (hopefully) of the stupid LOLsuit saga 39:54 - Justin Sevakis acquires AnimEigo (yes really) 42:08 - Toonami gets an old friend back at 2:30am 45:47 - AnimeNEXT 2024 cancelled 47:10 - another class action data breach lawsuit is settled (AMC Networks/HiDive) 48:42 - the new Kinnikuman anime is set for July 49:24 - Murai In Love set for fall for Disney+ 51:27 - a case of irony: Quality Assurance in Another World is delayed 52:50 - the Rent-A-Girlfriend author needs to be stopped 56:43 - Look Back to become a movie 58:00 - SPYxFAMILY movie coming stateside in April 59:40 - Your Name gets an audiobook 1:01:00 - a really cute SuBLime manga pickup worth mentioning 1:02:13 - NEET Kuroichi anime announced 1:05:31 - Crunchyroll May home video releases (Mob Psycho 100, One Piece, Uzaki-chan) 1:15:02 - A Place Further Than the Universe Blu-ray coming in April Apple Podcasts – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/podcastona/id1348141210?mt=2 Google Play – https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5wb2RjYXN0b25hLnN1cnJlYWxyZXNvbHV0aW9uLmNvbS9mZWVkL3BvZGNhc3Q Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/show/2JZLO3LfoeHepomejTw4TP iHeartRadio – https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-podcastona-43099114/ TuneIn – https://tunein.com/podcasts/Podcasts/PodcastONA-p1249922/ Where to find us: Alex – @AuraOfAzure, https://xandersmachinations.wordpress.com Andrew – @MangaMan9000, youtube.com/DubTalk Jet – @Divinenega, https://thenerdyabyss.wordpress.com Sketch – @Sketch1984, soundcloud.com/toonamifaithfulpodcast As always, check out surrealresolution.com for more content, and follow @SurrealReso for more updates on the show, our continued news posts, reviews, and our fellow podcasts.

Episode 167 – The Fate-ful Winter Payday!

2/6/2024
HEADS UP: some of the audio is a little crunchy. Weird things happened with some of the recording. We’ll try to not let that happen next time. The sluggish days of winter are here and we're all feeling it around here. We're all a bit tired and we're still trying to wade through our shifting schedules, so pardon any additional dust around here as we work to make the best of an ever-evolving situation. In the meantime, while there are some serious matters to discuss here, there are also a bit of good matters worth talking about, a large amount of dub cast for the season, and hopefully the first bit of the END of a five-year saga that's so unbelievably stupid it's not worth going all the way back to for discussion. Let's just laugh at the disgraced sex pest who will owe half a million dollars to those whom he attempted to silence into submission and committed career suicide as a result of it. Enjoy the festivities on Sunday, too. You know the ones. intro - we’re all very tired 4:37 - main stories 31:14 - the winter dub cast rundown 57:36 - announcements and updates 4:37 - death penalty verdict on the Kyoto Animation arsonist 8:31 - a $376,000 payday from a stupid lawsuit 16:57 - Expelled From Paradise sequel announced 19:37 - Netflix nabs The Imaginary and gets a Studio Ponac partnership 22:22 - Fate/stay night Remastered announced for Switch and Steam 28:54 - From Me to You updated with English dub on Netflix 31:14 - the winter dub cast rundown 57:36 - the new MHA movie is named 1:02:00 - Digimon Adventure 02 The Beginning gets distribution deal 1:03:55 - a whole lot of new Viz book licenses 1:22:47 - more Shield Hero is coming… yaaaaaaay… 1:25:05 - Mayonaka Punch and Takusetsu anime projects announced 1:28:24 - Oshi No Ko live-action series announced for Amazon 1:31:19 - not a lot of recent home video releases announced except Blue Giant in April Apple Podcasts – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/podcastona/id1348141210?mt=2 Google Play – https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5wb2RjYXN0b25hLnN1cnJlYWxyZXNvbHV0aW9uLmNvbS9mZWVkL3BvZGNhc3Q Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/show/2JZLO3LfoeHepomejTw4TP iHeartRadio – https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-podcastona-43099114/ TuneIn – https://tunein.com/podcasts/Podcasts/PodcastONA-p1249922/ Where to find us: Alex – @AuraOfAzure, https://xandersmachinations.wordpress.com Andrew – @MangaMan9000, youtube.com/DubTalk Jet – @Divinenega, https://thenerdyabyss.wordpress.com Duelist – @HeartofSword75, youtube.com/DuelistG As always, check out surrealresolution.com for more content, and follow @SurrealReso for more updates on the show, our continued news posts, reviews, and our fellow podcasts.

Episode 166 – The 2-For-1 Bonanza Blitz!

1/23/2024
Welcome to 2024 and welcome to a new year of this stilly dog-and-pony show we do every so often. We're back in a big way, basically putting together two whole shows in one, recounting the fall season and 2023 as a whole while looking forward to "award season" in one certain aspect and going through the latest pants-filling announcements from Discotek media - one such announcement was very "berserk" in a way, hint hint. And along the way, we've got news on the next show premiering on Toonami next month, how much money the Macross II Kickstarter raised, Monogatari making a comeback, and even a pair of pretty *ecchi* shows making their way down the pipeline. You heard that right. To go along with this, there is also an update for the future scheduling of this show - going forward, there will be no set schedule for when the show will go up besides "it'll be up when it's up," and that's mostly due to our very varied and ever-evolving schedules conflicting with our fun passion hobby of talking anime amongst one another for a few hours every few weeks. So just keep a look out on your podcast platforms of choice (shoutout to Overcast, for one) and on the main site for this show for when new episodes will be up and available. Thanks for reading. Enjoy the show. intro - happy(?) 2024, Duelist talks the Gurren Lagann movie 13:03 - List-Mania 2023 1:01:58 - this year’s Crunchyroll awards nominees 1:48:09 - main-ish stories 1:56:58 - announcements and updates 2:11:41 - Sentai April home video releases 2:14:37 - EL GRANDE DISCOTEK DAY 10 13:03 - the best and worst of fall 2023 45:00 - Oricon manga and light novel charts for 2023 56:31 - Polygon’s top anime of 2023 58:36 - the ANN mega-poll results 1:01:58 - this year’s Crunchyroll awards nominees 1:48:20 - Ryu Nakayama defects from MAPPA, forms his own new studio 1:50:43 - Dorohedoro anime returning soon 1:51:56 - new Monogatari anime series announced 1:53:40 - The Boy and the Heron wins at the Golden Globes 1:55:18 - One Piece new episodes being simulcast on… Netflix? 1:56:58 - the Macross II Kickstarter finishes at nearly $405k 1:59:31 - Plus-Sized Elf anime announced 2:02:05 - Ninja Kamui premiering on Toonami in February 2:04:39 - some new Yen Press licenses 2:10:21 - Crunchyroll picks up an… infamous title (Manyū Scroll) 2:11:41 - Sentai April home video releases (Rozen Maiden, Otaku Elf) 2:14:37 - EL GRANDE DISCOTEK DAY 10 (Reborn, Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple, MOTHERF-ING BERSERK) Apple Podcasts – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/podcastona/id1348141210?mt=2 Google Play – https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5wb2RjYXN0b25hLnN1cnJlYWxyZXNvbHV0aW9uLmNvbS9mZWVkL3BvZGNhc3Q Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/show/2JZLO3LfoeHepomejTw4TP iHeartRadio – https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-podcastona-43099114/ TuneIn – https://tunein.com/podcasts/Podcasts/PodcastONA-p1249922/ Where to find us: Alex – @AuraOfAzure, https://xandersmachinations.wordpress.com Andrew – @MangaMan9000, youtube.com/DubTalk Jet – @Divinenega, https://thenerdyabyss.wordpress.com Duelist – @HeartofSword75, youtube.com/DuelistG As always, check out surrealresolution.com for more content, and follow @SurrealReso for more updates on the show, our continued news posts, reviews, and our fellow podcasts.

Episode 165 – The Year Jump Festa Went Crazy!

12/24/2023
As 2023 comes to an end, you all may have varying feelings about the year as a whole. For some it was good, for others it was bad, and for the rest it was just very... meh. But we hope to leave the year for all of you on a better note, namely with about two and a half hours of anime discussion to listen to while you're all doing things during your Christmas holiday. Namely, a good bit of wild announcements from Jump Festa across the board, some interesting bits from Netflix regarding what people were watching this year, some upcoming second and third and fourth seasons recently announced, and even a good bit of news for Macross fans - the Macross II Kickstarter is live, so go to it and prepare your wallets for that sweet goodness to come next year. Thanks for listening throughout the year, and have a merry and happy whatever holiday you celebrate.

Episode 164 – Yet Another New York Minute!

11/26/2023
After a long Thanksgiving weekend, the grind continues onward - if only for one more week as Anime NYC was quite the event to look back on as opposed to the litany of terrible news we have to go through on this episode. We're all really just limping to the end of the year, in a way. But we carry on, if only for our own sense of self-worth and in honor of the greatest man who ever lived: Kento Nanami.

The Black Friday Discotek Day Marathon! (Best-Of)

11/24/2023
Happy Black Friday and/or Small Business Saturday and/or Cyber Monday - the best time of the year for reckless spending on random stuff nobody really needs but the deals are just way too good to pass up - and to help bide the time while you're out shopping (or endlessly browsing Amazon) here's a very long best-of compilation of our past "Discotek Day" events for you all to listen and look back on... for nearly NINE HOURS. Now, in response to the question of "but WHY tho?" the answer is simple: sometimes some ideas are just dumb enough to work. This is nearly a half-gigabyte of audio that took up 22 gigabytes of project files to put together and it will serve as a fine resource of the wonderful madness that the people of Discotek Media give to all of us - to note, this is NOT sponsored in any way, we're just big fans of their work.

Episode 163 – An Unprecedented F-ing Up & The Final Finale… Maybe?

11/3/2023
November is here, the fall season is in full swing, and things have been pretty quiet for a bit all over the place, which means it's the right time for someone to screw up in spectacular fashion. There are not-so-kind words being sent out to a certain voice talent over how a certain recent situation played out, and our punches aren't being pulled in this case because WOW this was bad. But, in happier news, Toonami has things worth talking about again, (most of) the fall season dub casts are run down, we have a reminder that PLUTO is worth spending your time watching on Netflix, and Attack on Titan is finally ending this weekend... we hope. Not just for our sakes, but for the sakes of everyone at MAPPA dealing with a madman for a boss. It's a short show for once, too. Fancy that. We'll all bitch about the $550 Code Geass box of crap next time. intro - spooky season is now over 6:37 - main stories 1:15:24 - announcements and updates 1:21:44 - home video releases 6:37 - how NOT to handle a dub casting snafu (RE: Bleach) 39:03 - Toonami HAS THINGS (Demon Slayer and HD IGPX) 45:12 - Crunchyroll subscription channel now on Amazon Prime Video 48:28 - the fall 2023 dub cast rundown 1:11:29 - PLUTO is good, watch it 1:15:24 - Attack on Titan ENDS this weekend… with MORE coming???] 1:19:54 - Sentenced to Be a Hero anime coming… soon 1:21:44 - Aniplex December releases 1:23:22 - Stone Ocean Blu-ray in January Apple Podcasts – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/podcastona/id1348141210?mt=2 Google Play – https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5wb2RjYXN0b25hLnN1cnJlYWxyZXNvbHV0aW9uLmNvbS9mZWVkL3BvZGNhc3Q Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/show/2JZLO3LfoeHepomejTw4TP iHeartRadio – https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-podcastona-43099114/ TuneIn – https://tunein.com/podcasts/Podcasts/PodcastONA-p1249922/ Where to find us: Alex – @AuraOfAzure, https://xandersmachinations.wordpress.com Andrew – @MangaMan9000, youtube.com/DubTalk Jet – @Divinenega, https://thenerdyabyss.wordpress.com Duelist – @HeartofSword75, youtube.com/DuelistG As always, check out surrealresolution.com for more content, and follow @SurrealReso for more updates on the show, our continued news posts, reviews, and our fellow podcasts.

Episode 162 – The Spooktacular Surprises!

10/22/2023
Well THIS sure became a meaty show, didn't it? Between the offerings and goings-on at New York Comic Con, Crunchyroll doing a bit of good and QUITE a bit of bad (you all know what it is), and another fantastic Discotek Day event happening, there's quite a lot to get to in this show. There's also a neat rundown of the dub cast for The Boy and the Heron, a pair of curious manga anecdotes to take a laugh or two at, even more manga and light novel announcements, and ALL of the goods that Discotek brought to all of us last week. And yes, we get VERY blunt and serious in regards to one upcoming show's home video release and of how barebones it absolutely should not be. Don't make it a recurring thing, Crunchyroll. Next time?

Episode 161 – The Devilishly Dashing Drops!

10/8/2023
For this go-around, we've got a little bit of everything for everyone here - big announcements, business news, recapping a MID season, terrible bullcrap nobody likes, hilarious overreactions from light novel and manga announcements, and even a terrible correction to what we thought was something cool from the last show, only to find out it was all a multi-tiered mistake that was never going to happen to begin with. Such is life, in a way. But at least there's a cool Devil May Cry project coming soon, along with other weird and cool projects for Netflix coming as soon as this month - this is a reminder that we are mere weeks away from PLUTO. We will talk about it. And sadly, we also have to talk about the news regarding the status of Rightstuf - or rather, the lack thereof, going forward. It won't be fun. At least there's a Discotek Day happening next week along with NYCC. So we'll have plenty to talk about next time. intro - another late show and a late Rascal correction 8:45 - the best and worst of the summer 22:20 - main stories 1:00:46 - announcements and updates 1:34:08 - home video releases 22:20 - WGA strike over, SAG-AFTRA updates 25:22 - Studio Ghibli acquired by NTV 29:36 - Rightstuf being phased out and migrated to Crunchyroll 42:13 - when machine translation goes wrong (Crunchyroll/Yuzuki Family) 45:57 - Manga Plus gets caught cheating with AI 50:24 - Kinnikuman 2024 new details 54:23 - FLCL Shoegaze dub cast 57:52 - Luffy’s heading to New York City on Thanksgiving 1:00:46 - Netflix DROP 01 announcements (Blood Dragon, Devil May Cry, Tomb Raider) 1:10:08 - Kaguya-sama movie dub was shadowdropped 1:13:39 - Misfit of Demon King Academy season 2 continues in 2024 1:15:20 - Beyblade continues to exist 1:16:54 - some new Seven Seas licenses 1:26:40 - The Tunnel to Summer, The Exit of Goodbyes comes to theaters in November 1:27:29 - Tadaima, Okaeri anime announced and coming soon 1:28:30 - Time Patrol Bon anime announced for Netflix 1:30:28 - The Concierge film coming next year 1:31:51 - some interesting Discotek titles now on Crunchyroll (Gunbuster, GaoGaiGar, Angel Cop) 1:34:08 - Gundam Blu-ray titles delayed once again 1:34:45 - GKIDS releasing Spirited Away stage play and Masaaki Yuasa box set 1:39:39 - To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts Blu-ray out in October 1:41:31 - Magical Witch Punie-chan Blu-ray out in November 1:42:37 - Discotek Day next Monday (10/16) Apple Podcasts – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/podcastona/id1348141210?mt=2 Google Play – https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5wb2RjYXN0b25hLnN1cnJlYWxyZXNvbHV0aW9uLmNvbS9mZWVkL3BvZGNhc3Q Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/show/2JZLO3LfoeHepomejTw4TP iHeartRadio – https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-podcastona-43099114/ TuneIn – https://tunein.com/podcasts/Podcasts/PodcastONA-p1249922/ Where to find us: Alex – @AuraOfAzure, https://xandersmachinations.wordpress.com Andrew – @MangaMan9000, youtube.com/DubTalk Jet – @Divinenega, https://thenerdyabyss.wordpress.com Duelist – @HeartofSword75, youtube.com/DuelistG As always, check out

Episode 160 – It’s Kagurabachi’n Time!

9/25/2023
(Producer’s note: this episode is late due to a very busy week. Apologies for the delay.) Have you all heard about the smash hit new shonen series Kagurabachi? It's gotten three anime seasons, two movies, and has sold one trillion copies of its manga - it's the new MORBIUS SWEEP... okay, jokes and memes aside, sometimes Morbius-meme-ing a series can work, but we'll see in the coming weeks and months if Kagurabachi has the legs to live on in the pages of Jump. And along with talking about that, there is good news for the future of One Piece on Netflix, a rundown of everything from the Aniplex Online Fest event, Demon Slayer and SPY x FAMILY getting Switch games that may or may not be deemed shovelware, and a rundown of Crunchyroll's fall simulcast slate... MOST of it, rather. P.S. next time we'll be going hard on the Rightstuf news.

Episode 159 – The Surprisingly Successful Voyage!

9/9/2023
As was made famous on an episode of The Simpsons many years ago, it was the best of times and the BLURST of times. In the case of the former, it's the smashing success of One Piece on Netflix - and yes, it IS good - but in the latter, it's a crash-and-burn of a supposed upstart company with too much ambition and not enough capital. Such is life, in a way. As for what it all means for this show, it doesn't mean a whole lot, but this IS the shortest show we've done in quite a while as not a lot has been going on lately. The end of summer means things are slowing down a bit, but we'll be back next time for a meatier show. And if you want some more audio, check out this week's Dub Talk episode about the new Urusei Yatsura series here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPa9ZwZSOiQ intro - fragile egos and an abridged abridging 6:53 - main stories 45:13 - announcements and updates 1:02:37 - home video releases 6:53 - Netflix One Piece was… GOOD? 24:42 - a stupid update to AniMedia and its demise 34:18 - an interesting addition to the Justice League x RWBY voice cast 39:14 - NTV makes a new anime block for Frieren 41:08 - a third season of Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You announced for Netflix 45:13 - Given two-part film sequel announced 46:30 - Dead Dead Demons Dededede Destruction two-part anime film announced 48:18 - Naruto 20th anniverary episodes postponed 50:11 - The Apothecary Diaries premiering with its first three episodes 52:27 - Sola-produced Lord of the Rings movie release postponed due to SAG/WGA strikes 56:00 - even more new Crunchyroll titles coming soon 1:02:37 - Discotek November home video releases (Chargeman Ken, Street Fighter II 4K, Crying Freeman) Apple Podcasts – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/podcastona/id1348141210?mt=2 Google Play – https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5wb2RjYXN0b25hLnN1cnJlYWxyZXNvbHV0aW9uLmNvbS9mZWVkL3BvZGNhc3Q Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/show/2JZLO3LfoeHepomejTw4TP iHeartRadio – https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-podcastona-43099114/ TuneIn – https://tunein.com/podcasts/Podcasts/PodcastONA-p1249922/ Where to find us: Alex – @AuraOfAzure, https://xandersmachinations.wordpress.com Andrew – @MangaMan9000, youtube.com/DubTalk Jet – @Divinenega, https://thenerdyabyss.wordpress.com Duelist – @HeartofSword75, youtube.com/DuelistG As always, check out surrealresolution.com for more content, and follow @SurrealReso for more updates on the show, our continued news posts, reviews, and our fellow podcasts.

In Memory "Bray Wyatt" Windham Rotunda 1987-2023 The summer heat is still lingering around and it's affecting all of us in various ways. Namely, we were all a bit off on some things today, like forgetting certain voice actors' roles or figuring out whether or not Sentai's upcoming Familiar Of Zero rerelease has the season one dub because of website formatting. Here's to cooler temperatures coming sooner for all of us because we could use it, but in the meantime we have some looks at the upcoming Scott Pilgrim series on Netflix, some updates for HiDive, some Shonen Jump updates for two of its bigger titles, and a fantastic series showing up on a very unexpected platform - at least it's free, so there's that.

Episode 157 – The Digital Wizardry Unleashed!

8/6/2023
Otakon has come and gone, and in its wake... well, we think you all already know what happened. Quite a bit of things were brought to the table from Discotek, including some very unexpected good news in the form of absolute mental wizardry and devout dedication to the craft of Digimon - with one notable omission, of course. We're all pretty excited, too. And we made sure to dedicate some time to The First Slam Dunk and its amazing... well, everything, as well as the dub casts for a rather paltry summer season, some Macross updates that also came out at Otakon, and plenty of time spent tearing apart the people in charge at Bandai for trying to dictate the narrative of Gundam: The Witch From Mercury's finale - along with the rest of the world doing the same thing because they absolutely deserve it. P.S. we know Gear 5 happened.

So who could have guessed that an actor strike would mean San Diego Comic-Con would end up being more like the SDCCs of old? With that, so too comes quite a bit of announcements, namely from the likes of Adult Swim and Crunchyroll as it relates to this program. We also take a brief look back at the spring season now that it's been over for a month, show our surprising optimism for the Netflix One Piece series with its new trailer, go through quite a bit of Dengeki Bunko event announcements, and try to make sense of a certain interview from a certain studio head on this edition of the show.

It’s that time of year again, when the convention season meets its apex in Los Angeles for the cluster-mess known as Anime Expo - where all of your dreams may not come true but there’s bound to be some cool announcements. In the second of this two-part episode, we continue with the rest of the first day of AX with even MORE manga to go through, and afterwards we roam through the rest of the convention for some questionable discussions, curious yet head-scratching reveals, and a LOT of One Piece talk, both very good and very not-good. And it wouldn’t be AX without a “one more thing” to tickle some folks’ early-2010s Hot Topic itch with a certain series getting revived… because apparently someone asked for more Black Butler to be a thing. What else got announced? Tune in and find out. P.S. to the listeners: all of us have a zero-tolerance policy on BS rhetoric. Welcome to WRATH MONTH. We say trans rights around these parts. start - Anime Expo: Day 1 (continued) 32:00 - Day 2 49:43 - Day 3 1:35:24 - Day 4 start - TOHO 7:30 - Bandai Namco Entertainment 11:06 - J-Novel Club 18:00 - Comikey 18:37 - HiDive 23:06 - Square Enix Manga 24:41 - Yen Press 32:00 - MAPPA discussion panel 34:13 - Dark Horse 35:27 - Viz Media 39:32 - Production I.G./Wit discussion panel 46:00 - Azuki 49:43 - the poorly-planned One Piece 1000 event 55:23 - WB Japan/Wit (Suicide Squad Isekai) 1:03:27 - Aniplex 1:05:04 - Mangamo 1:06:24 - Denpa/Kuma 1:08:38 - AX Cinema Nights 1:10:28 - Crunchyroll 1:35:24 - Tokyopop… because 1:38:28 - Undead Unluck coming to Hulu Apple Podcasts – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/podcastona/id1348141210?mt=2 Google Play – https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5wb2RjYXN0b25hLnN1cnJlYWxyZXNvbHV0aW9uLmNvbS9mZWVkL3BvZGNhc3Q Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/show/2JZLO3LfoeHepomejTw4TP iHeartRadio – https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-podcastona-43099114/ TuneIn – https://tunein.com/podcasts/Podcasts/PodcastONA-p1249922/ Stitcher – https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/podcastona/ Where to find us: Alex – @AuraOfAzure Andrew – @MangaMan9000, youtube.com/DubTalk Jet – @Divinenega, https://thenerdyabyss.wordpress.com Duelist – @HeartofSword75, youtube.com/DuelistG As always, check out surrealresolution.com for more content, and follow @SurrealReso for more updates on the show, our continued news posts, reviews, and our fellow podcasts.

7/8/2023
It’s that time of year again, when the convention season meets its apex in Los Angeles for the cluster-mess known as Anime Expo - where all of your dreams may not come true but there’s bound to be some cool announcements. In the first part of this two-part episode, there is some pre-AX news to go over as well as a Discotek stream to recap - which had some interesting announcements in its own right - before kicking off with the first day of Anime Expo… well, most of the first day, anyway, since it was especially packed this year. You’ll be hearing about TRIGGER’s plans for Panty & Stocking, a unique Gundam project coming soon, more information on the upcoming Pluto series, and LOTS of manga announcements - with more to come in the second part, too. intro - the internet is dying because Elon can’t pay his bills 8:12 - pre-AX news items 28:47 - pre-AX Discotek Day 1:20:49 - Anime Expo: Day 1 8:12 - Toei establishes a new company 10:28 - Natsume’s Book of Friends gets a SEVENTH season 12:46 - new Spice & Wolf anime coming in 2024 15:27 - Naruto is back for a four-episode ratings bump 19:08 - …a Gundam SEED movie is happening 21:14 - The First Slam Dunk dub cast 1:20:49 - AX Day 1: the grievances 1:26:11 - TRIGGER 1:36:23 - Bandai Namco Filmworks 1:39:17 - Fate/strange Fake TV series announced 1:42:12 - Kodansha manga 1:58:03 - MAPPA 2:01:56 - Netflix Apple Podcasts – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/podcastona/id1348141210?mt=2 Google Play – https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5wb2RjYXN0b25hLnN1cnJlYWxyZXNvbHV0aW9uLmNvbS9mZWVkL3BvZGNhc3Q Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/show/2JZLO3LfoeHepomejTw4TP iHeartRadio – https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-podcastona-43099114/ TuneIn – https://tunein.com/podcasts/Podcasts/PodcastONA-p1249922/ Stitcher – https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/podcastona/ Where to find us: Alex – @AuraOfAzure Andrew – @MangaMan9000, youtube.com/DubTalk Jet – @Divinenega, https://thenerdyabyss.wordpress.com Duelist – @HeartofSword75, youtube.com/DuelistG As always, check out surrealresolution.com for more content, and follow @SurrealReso for more updates on the show, our continued news posts, reviews, and our fellow podcasts.

Episode 153 – The Summertime Reload!

6/24/2023
Welcome to summer, where it's hot and muggy and probably storming three times a week. While you're all dealing with the humid heat, stay inside and enjoy our not-always-luminous voices going through the last bit of news bits before Anime Expo happens and we're all spending hours and hours dissecting every major announcement to come from it. We also talk about how great Across the Spider-Verse* is, how *meh* the third season of Demon Slayer really was, the vibes of the Netflix One Piece trailer, and how cool some video games can be when presented right. And we also go through how terrible union busting is in regards to one particular company we're all continually losing patience with. But at least Discotek Day is happening on Monday, so enjoy the fun shenanigans before AX next weekend. We'll be here to run everything down next time. *This was recorded before details regarding the production of Across the Spider-Verse were reported. None of us support excessive crunch. We all support quality art taking as much time as needed to be made. intro - welcome to summer 3:38 - the good: Across the Spider-Verse 27:20 - the bad: Demon Slayer season 3 35:22 - main stories 1:14:36 - announcements and updates 1:55:20 - home video releases 35:22 - SAG-AFTRA ready to strike 37:30 - Crunchyroll has been union-busting 48:45 - Serial Experiments Lain gets a shady ARG project 51:16 - the “Not E3” recap 54:04 - Persona 3 Reload remake announced with a new voice cast 1:04:31 - The Rising of the Shield Hero “Goodwill Redemption Live Event Tour” is a thing 1:07:56 - Toei putting some big shows up on Hulu 1:12:02 - (most of) the DBZ movies up going on Crunchyroll 1:13:22 - Discotek Day on Monday 1:14:36 - Netflix One Piece premiering August 31 1:21:34 - GKIDS acquires Blue Giant film 1:22:58 - Lonely Castle in the Morror dub cast 1:26:23 - Zom 100 dub cast, dub premiering in August 1:29:44 - Crunchyroll gets the new TONIKAWA specials 1:31:51 - Dropkick on My Devil!
