Oldtaku no Radio #052 – Speed Grapher
After an economic bubble burst in Japan, the Tennouzu Group buys a city and a nation by catering to its leaders’ perversions. The underground (literally) club that serves the basest desires of the rich and powerful is only open to those willing and able to pay lifelong yearly dues to the tune of ¥24,000,000 … ¥120,000,000 if they want to see others of the same tier face death or monstrous transformation by kissing a mesmerized “goddess.” But everything starts to crumble when a celebrated war photographer with a heart of gold disrupts the ritual and runs off with its centerpiece. Listen in on a vaguely spoiler-ish discussion hashing out the road buddy monster movie that is Speed Grapher.
AGP#151 – Reading Indie Manga with Glaeolia 2
The boys are back from their New Year’s break! Evan kicks off 2021 with a review of Glacier Bay Books’ fascinating new indie manga anthology Glaeolia 2. Before that he and David discuss the big “FUNimation bought Crunchyroll” news, then Star Wars Squadrons and Final Fantasy IV in the Queue segment. Topics include: fans win, a whole town dedicated to hating the player, and Wario’s entrepreneurial spirit. Send us feedback at email@example.com!

Soft & Spicy...
Pretty great podcast if you ask me. Evan and David have a laugh, talk about anime, games and all things in between. Intelligent dudes who know their stuff and certainly make my journey to and from work a hell of a lot better whenever they release a new episode. Keep on keeping on guys!
