Do you love anime? Like seriously love anime? The hosts of Otaku Melancholy do too. That's why every week they're going to bring you a discussion about Japan's animated export... and probably talk a lot of trash about each other's terrible taste in the process. From mecha to moe, no series will be left unwatched! (Except the ones we drop after episode three.) Be sure to join our Discord server at https://discord.gg/rUHYUyW to continue the conversation!

    WAS IT THAT HYPE?: Toradora

    WAS IT THAT HYPE?: Toradora

    Is it good? Is it bad? Whatever it is, it's Toradorable! We're starting a new series where we review the most popular show of each year (according to MAL numbers so we might easily make us look stupid in a few years or something) and reviewing them to ask the question: is this show actually that good or is it just overhyped? We're starting with 2008's Toradora which is basically just tsundere central with Taiga and other characters who are just there, I guess. Do you really care about anyone else but Taiga? Like for real? I remember the bird and the mom but I don't know if that's exactly something I SHOULD remember. I also remember that Ami is best so don't @ me, guys. We were both really tired today from a bunch of work stuff but at least we put out an episode though!

    ATTALK ON TITAN: Episode 65 - "The War Hammer Titan"

    ATTALK ON TITAN: Episode 65 - "The War Hammer Titan"

    We finally get to see the War Hammer Titan in this episode! And some other things too but they're not as important as the War Hammer Titan! Some CG was on display in this episode and maybe it wasn't the best? Just maybe? I'm not judging. Well, I am but that's what this thing is, right? Like we have to judge and talk about the episodes or there wouldn't be content. Anyways, new Attalk on Titan episode! We talk about if the CG was actually THAT bad, what we think could happen in the future, and you know. More stuff. Doing this Attalk on Titan descriptions every week is exhausting. like what do I say about the show? How many more times do I have to do this? At least ten, I think. I can't wait to be done with double records EVERY week. Anyways!

    A Year of Otaku Melancholy! - What We Learned (and Didn't Learn), the Anime We Watched, and Reflections

    A Year of Otaku Melancholy! - What We Learned (and Didn't Learn), the Anime We Watched, and Reflections

    I honestly thought we would've dropped out before we got to a year of doing this but here we are. There is no reason for us to survive a year of doing this really. We're taking an entire episode to talk about what happened in the past year so this kind of counts as like a recap episode or something? I mean, it's important so don't skip it like you would with anime or anything! We reflect on wrapping up what I guess is the first season of this show as we talk about why we did it, the fun experiences we had, and we get really sentimental or something. I get sentimental. Like legitimately teary-eyed. Enjoy this softer episode as we talk about the friendships, the moments, and all the things that made this year of doing the podcast an amazing one! We love our listeners and thank you so much for making us a part of your life and year or whatever! Special shout out to everyone who called in and left us e-mails! You guys are the best and I'm so stoked to get to do this with people like you. Thanks so much for everything again! As always, check out new episodes every Tuesday by going to our website at www.otakumelancholy.com to see all our links including our social media and join the Discord at https://discord.gg/rUHYUyW to continue the conversation!

    ATTALK ON TITAN: Episode 64 - "Declaration of War"

    ATTALK ON TITAN: Episode 64 - "Declaration of War"

    Are we sure this show isn't actually called Attalk on Titan because good lord was there a lot of chit chat in this episode. Willy was talking, (spoiler character) was talking, Reiner was talking... Everyone was just talking. But is that a bad thing? Maybe not. I dunno. A sleep deprived Brad is featured in this episode and it is a treat just like this episode of Attack on Titan. We continue to make wild guesses, theories, and just generally made outlandish claims in this episode so you know. Put us on and welcome to the dumpster fire once more.

    Anime 2020 In Review - The OtaMel Aniwards!

    Anime 2020 In Review - The OtaMel Aniwards!

    We watched a lot of anime in 2020. Like a lot of anime. We were stuck inside and had nothing else to do but watch anime, think about anime, and put off watching the anime we had to go through to actually have discussions for this podcast. And maybe we watched the most anime of what was actually airing in 2020, you know? So here we are giving our review of all the anime in 2020 that actually mattered (that we watched) and all the trash that robbed us hours of our precious life! We're dishing out our personal top 10s of the anime from this year and giving out a few saucy awards (saucy was the best I could come up with) including "Best Girl of the Year", "Studio of the Year", and the coveted "Anime Was a Mistake" award! Watch out though. This is another LOOOOOOONG episode so be sure to prepare a lot of housework for yourself or whatever it is that you actually do when you listen to podcasts (I like to cook while I listen, thanks for asking 3) and get ready for what is sure to be an awful collection of opinions as we close out this year.

    Fall 2020 Season Review (Or What We Watched Of It)

    Fall 2020 Season Review (Or What We Watched Of It)

    Just as a warning, we're both tremendously drained and have kind of low energy in this episode because life just threw both of us for a wicked suplex from the top rope. That's how suplexes work, right? Well, you can't have a good season every season, right? I mean, I'm not talking about the quality of the shows in this season but about the sheer few numbers we managed to get through this time. Life happens and you can't do a whole lot but we tried at least! We'll try to do better next season and watch at least three times as many shows next season, I swear! We're talking all about the latest and last shows that graced out screens in 2020 and they were a tremendously mixed bag. In this episode, we're covering the delightful treat of Wandering Witch: Journey of Elaina, the thrilling Talentless Nana, the hilarious Sleepy Princess in Demon Castle, the touching comedy The Day I Became a God, the lovey dovey doki doki Tonikaku Kawaii, and the simply badass Akudama Drive.
