Episode 96 – The Infodump Speedrun!

3/25/2021
And with this show, we’re back on proper schedule. All is well… at least for this show, anyway. Consider this another one of those infodump shows where we go through a good amount of news and announcements in a rather swift setting, all in some kind of preparation for what should be another long show with AnimeJapan coming up. But in the meantime, enjoy our discussion on the game Scarlet Nexus getting anime series, the long-awaited theatrical rollout for Mugen Train, some info on the release...

Episode 95 – The (Belated) Master Discovery!

3/19/2021
Apologies for this show being about a week late, as we had some issues out of our control that prevented us from meeting up to do our show on schedule. Thanks a lot for everything, Kabletown, we hope you’re enjoying giving WWE those $200 million checks for the next five years. But gripes aside, we’ve got a good bit of stuff to talk about, even if the overall mood is a bit more… subdued, as it’s a three-man affair for this and the next show. We’ve got an interesting new project from MAPPA...

Episode 94 – The 5ecret 5star 5ystem 5endoff!

2/27/2021
Yes, the episode title is a big Daft Punk reference, kind of obvious. But this is also a sendoff in a different way, as while we give our thanks to the acclaimed French electronic music duo for their years of excellence, we are also sending Andrew off on this show as he will be undergoing a bit of a “training arc” of sorts for a little while. But he wanted to be on for these last two shows we did, to both groan at the CR Anime Awards and also give a verbal smacking-down to Sentai for their...

Episode 93 – The Crunchyroll APATHY Awards.

2/25/2021
Maybe it’s just the disillusionment we’ve all felt over the past year, but this year’s Crunchyroll Anime Awards just didn’t have anything to them. It was virtual, pre-recorded, and pretty boilerplate across the board, and while that did mean there was a significant drop in awfulness and cringe that did come with the catch of just being a pretty forgettable hour that just came and went. There were some good award choices, some bad ones, and some that are just “eh whatever, who cares,” and the...

Episode 92 – The Memories Remain!

2/12/2021
Here are some hard realities of life that we all need to accept: Tom Brady is an eldritch god living among the humans, Hunter x Hunter and Berserk both have the same billion-to-one odds of ever coming back full-time, and nothing that any other studio makes could match the avant-garde glory that is Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1995 anthology film MEMORIES. Try as they might, very little can even stand in its league, and we caught the Discotek Media global dub premiere of the film and had some high...

Episode 91 – The Winter Binge & Purge! (Part 2)

1/30/2021
With the start of a new anime season comes our seasonal discussion of the good, bad, and quite certainly ugly that the season has to offer. And with the large amount of shows this season has in store, we’ve got two loaded episodes to unpack a season filled with sequels, quality, and even some dumpster fires as well – and we have our good friends Megan from Dub Talk and Sketch from just about everywhere to join us and help us out with the chatter and snark that the season has given us. In...

Episode 89 – The Roast and the First!

1/21/2021
Yep, it’s that time again. Awards season is upon us, and even though it’ll look a lot different this time around the guarantees of salt and disappointment are sure to remain the same. And as our very long-winded discussion on this year’s nominations for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards are anything to go by, we’ll be in for a salty night next month. But it’s not all about the hot-dogging and grandstanding, as we’ve got a movie to go over, in the form of LUPIN III: THE FIRST – consider it our...

Episode 88 – The New Year’s Training Arc! (Season 8 Premiere)

1/9/2021
In Memoriam Brad Venable 1977-2021 To say that the year 2021 has gotten off to a hectic start would be the understatement of the decade, as there has been a LOT going on in only the first week of the new year. And we hope that, in some small way, this show will help clear your mind on the outside world for a short while, because while things are still very much on fire we will always find a way to converge and shoot the stuff on this fascinating hobby and interest that we all share. And...

Episode 87 – The Fate of the Industry and the Sale of the Century! (Season 7 Finale)

12/18/2020
2020 just couldn’t end without one more major bombshell announcement, now, could it? After weeks and weeks of rumor-milling and speculation, it finally happened: the sale of Crunchyroll to Sony and Funimation, in an effort to start curbing off the massive debt building up within the big blue Death Star known as AT&T, will cause a seismic shift in the anime industry across the globe, but what will that exactly entail? Nobody really knows right now. It will be a long process from transaction...

Episode 86 – The Infinity Train: Five Minutes to Midnight

12/11/2020
As you might be able to ascertain, this episode isn’t covering a certain major announcement that broke out that has to do with big companies and the like. Suffice it to say, this show was done *before* said announcement was made. And in all honesty, this is more of a buffer show to get to the next one, but we still have plenty to chat about, be it how Demon keeps making all kinds of money, some interesting Blu-ray topics ranging from good to bad and even “huh,” and the return of LIST-MANIA –...

Episode 85 – The Everlong Dichotomy of Life

11/26/2020
In Memoriam Kirby Morrow 1973-2020 As we step closer and closer to finally closing the book on the year 2020, it’s important to know the tremendous weight it has brought along with it has been, in so many ways, insurmountable. From the major calamities to the more personal struggles, this year is leaving a gigantic impact on just about everyone. And as we step closer to casting this year off, it is just as important to remember the calamity that wreaked havoc, from the macro to the micro,...

Episode 84 – The Way of the Pile!

11/8/2020
Let’s keep it real, it’s been a VERY long week. A very long and drawn-out week that’s just about worn everyone out. But the cycle for this show continues in earnest, all in spite of an ever-shifting climate or climates. So, for this show, we have the low-down on the Netflix anime presentation event and a certain househusband that’s coming along with it, some dub casts with some wishes being granted, those damn MONKEY PAWS curling up time and time again, and the latest on just how much money...

Episode 83 – The Autumnal Round Table Buffet!

10/31/2020
It’s finally starting to cool down, the leaves are changing colors, and pumpkin spice lattes have been back on the menu for a while now. Yep, it’s fall, and with it comes an absolutely LOADED anime season for us to dig into – so loaded, in fact, that we had to call on some outside help just to get through most of these shows. So join us, along with Megan from Dub Talk and Sketch from… well, everywhere on the internet, as we go through the highs and lows and everything in between for the fall...

Episode 82 – EVA’s 25th Anniversary Jackpot!

10/10/2020
You would think that we’d install some kind of fire-retardant materials of some kind to make sure our newsroom doesn’t explode when something big happens. Alas, it keeps happening, hence why another episode is coming out so soon. Such a cause of an explosion? Several, actually – a GODZILLA anime, Log Horizon seemingly finding a new home over here, the first look at the latest installment in the Gridman universe, and the long-awaited return of… THE BEAST. The impossible dream has been...

Episode 81 – The Progressive Future Outlook

10/2/2020
In Memoriam Kosei Tomita 1936-2020 At the heart of it all, this is a very silly show where a group of folks come together to talk and snark about anime, so please keep that in mind when listening to some very hammy and over-exaggerated reactions happen over certain shows. With that in mind, as we prepare for our fall season undertaking, we’re also looking ahead to see what the winter season has in store for us while also taking some detours into the world of strange Kickstarter project...

Episode 80 – The Discotek SmackDown!

9/18/2020
Even in the midst of cataclysmic chaos the world over, Discotek finds a way to bring us all together to join in the glory of old-ish anime titles coming back for a second chance at fandom life, and with how big of a deal these Discotek Days are you just know that we’re on the case to dive deep into the announcements, the plunder, and all of the joyous wonderment that such a day can bring to all of us. And also on deck, rounding out a fairly-sized show, are the announcements of Funimation...

Episode 79 – The Virtual Crunchy Hook-Up(s)!

9/10/2020
2020 sure has been all over the place, and nowhere is that more evident than with the shift to “virtual” anime conventions. Such was the case with VCRX, or the Virtual Crunchyroll Expo, an event that certainly did happen and that people watched from the comfort and safety of their own homes. There were some pretty significant announcements made throughout that weekend, as well, from the surprising to the REALLY surprising, and an old relationship seems to have been rekindled once again…...

Episode 78 – The Confidence of the Pretender!

8/29/2020
In Memoriam: Chadwick Boseman 1976-2020 While it may seem that on the surface we’re just a good-natured group of folks who like talking about this fascinatingly strange interest of ours. the seedy truth is that we’re really a bunch of corporate shills. Why else would we be so vehemently against piracy, besides the risk of computer viruses that come with associated illegal platforms? Nope, we’re just deep in the pocket of the big companies, getting paid in clout more than anything else....

Episode 77 – The Power is Back On! (Mostly)

8/15/2020
Power outages sure do suck, and because we had to deal with a few of those quite recently it’s messed with our schedule going forward. But we’re back, even as a three-man group, to discuss the latest happenings that have been backlogged in the newsroom, from both the good and bad with a bit in the ugly department as well. And if you’re into soundtracks, there’s a lot of upcoming releases to look at, along with a long-requested show finally getting a dub, a look into upcoming shows for 2021,...
