    Nerdom and Other Nonsense Anime Podcast #123 - The Peace Sharks' Shocking Victory

    Nerdom and Other Nonsense Anime Podcast #123 - The Peace Sharks' Shocking Victory

    Kat, Bcom, and Leo are back to break down the 7th week of the Winter 2020 anime season. This episode contains some hilariously outdated takes on Coronavirus. We were all so optimistic back in early March. Bcom is disappointed that the Queen match doesn’t get enough focus in the latest episode of Chihayafuru. We learn about Tsubame’s long history of studying human movements and how it informs her animation in Eizouken. ID: Invaded reveals the identity of the main villain, John Walker, but we get the feeling we can’t take the writers at their word. Bcom is ecstatic as Dorohedoro delivers one of the best animated baseball episodes he’s seen in anime. We learn that Honey Badgers love the feeling of pain in the latest episode of Seton Academy. The BOFURI characters decide to try their hand at speedrunning dungeons to get even more broken upgrades than before. We find out that Tsukishima could jump higher if he wasn’t such a lazy bitch, in Haikyu. We talk about some thicc eggs in our discussion of the latest Interspecies Reviewers episode, which succeeds at one-upping an infamous Monster Musume episode. Recorded March 9, 2020. Timestamps: 2:16 - Nonsense (Bcom learns how to win by watching Uncut Gems, Leo gets his freighter in No Man’s Sky and gears up for Call of Duty: Warzone, Kat’s dog has a dangerous encounter with some coffee beans and drinks her worries away at a volunteer beerfest) 21:49 - Chihayafuru 3 (Ep. 19) 28:01 - Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!

    Nerdom and Other Nonsense Anime Podcast #122 - Magical Muffholes and Midseason Cuts

    Leo, Bcom, and Kat are back to break down the 6th week of the Winter 2020 anime season. It’s midseason, so after our normal reviews we also talk about other shows we’ve been keeping up with this season, as we decide on any midseason cuts we want to make. Recorded March 2-3, 2020. Timestamps: 1:28 - Nonsense (No Leo’s Sky runs into technical issues but he also learns how to break the game’s economy wide open, Bcom watches the second Girls und Panzer das Finale movie, Kat does battle with her garage door and visits a strange restaurant) 12:57 - Chihayafuru 3 (Ep. 18) 21:59 - Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!

    Nerdom and Other Nonsense Anime Podcast #121 - The Mystery of the Ball State Larping Disaster

    Kat, Leo, and Bcom are back to break down the 5th week of the Winter 2020 anime season. Bcom talks about Chihayafuru, but his voice floats into a soundless void where no one but Shinobu can hear him. We get into a discussion about the safety concerns at the Eizouken girls’ school, which leads Leo to debunk a myth about Kat’s university. During our conversation about ID: Invaded, we figure out what the results of drilling holes in your head has in common with the plots of Beastars and American Pie. Our Dorohedoro segment devolves into an advertisement for Texas Roadhouse. Chimpanzees cheat on Seton Academy’s field day, but Bcom is too distracted by a random “skunk” girl to really care. Maple becomes a walking environmental disaster in the latest episode of BOFURI. Haikyu continues to proceed a little slower than we would like. Between mushroom lolis and Cyclops eye fetishes, all of our hosts are pushed a bit too far by this week’s episode of Interspecies Reviewers. Recorded February 28, 2020. Timestamps: 1:39 - Nonsense (Bcom watches F1: Drive to Survive season 2 which leads into a discussion of reality dating shows somehow, Leo spreads the good news that another Japanese TV station has picked up Interspecies Reviewers, we have a very early discussion about Coronavirus which is very quaint in retrospect, Kat goes to a dinner that gives out free rubber duckies) 12:10 - Chihayafuru 3 (Ep. 17) 20:04 - Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!

    Nerdom and Other Nonsense Anime Podcast #120 - Unrealistic Wolf Licking

    Nerdom and Other Nonsense Anime Podcast #120 - Unrealistic Wolf Licking

    Bcom, Kat, and Leo are back to talk about the 4th week of the Winter 2020 anime season! Bcom recaps the lead-up to the Meijin and Queen match in the latest episode of Chihayafuru. We argue over whether Eizouken’s imagination sequences are worthwhile or whether the show would be more effective in a documentary format. Bcom breaks down how ID: Invaded references an early 20th century detective story this episode. Dorohedoro goes balls to the wall with some of its craziest plot developments and animation yet. We talk more than we really should about what is realistic vs. unrealistic wolf licking when it comes to Seton Academy. BOFURI introduces the cutest turtle in the history of anime – get rekt Squirtle – and Maple appropriately names him Syrup. Tall guys sometimes need a boost to their confidence to as we learn in the latest episode of Haikyu. And finally, we close out the episode with a scintillating and titillating review of the latest escapes of the Interspecies Reviewers. Recorded February 24, 2020. Timestamps: 1:27 - Nonsense (Bcom reviews Memories (1995), Leo is convinced to give No Man’s Sky another shot, Kat has a wild Mardi Gras) 9:50 - Chihayafuru 3 (Ep. 16) 19:06 - Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!

    Nerdom and Other Nonsense Anime Podcast #119 - Children of the Porn

    Leo, Bcom, and Kat are back to talk about the 3rd week of the Winter 2020 anime season! We chat about the Heian period practice of “morning after” poems, stemming from the latest episode of  Chihayafuru. Bcom loved the Eizouken club’s conflict over prioritizing rule-of-cool or sakuga animation for their first project, although Sayaka’s steel chompers distracted Leo. ID:INVADED still has us arguing over how to pronounce the title. The cast of Dorohedoro basically find themselves in a George Romero zombie movie this episode, and we lose our heads over the background art and OP. Leo wishes he had his own pride of gal lion girls, while Kat ponders how tiny naked mole rats make love to their half-human queen in Seton Academy. Kat imagines a real-life fruit that tastes like a Starburst, inspired by the inventive food and wine that characters can eat on level 2 in BOFURI. Leo enjoyed Haikyu! Leo enjoyed a sports anime! Rejoice! Unfortunately, Kat watched a censored version of Interspecies Reviewers while Leo and Bcom watched the episode in all its glory, which leads to a LOT of pointless arguing. Nonetheless, our bickering is hilarious. Recorded February 20, 2020. Timestamps: 1:41 - Nonsense (Kat purges her friend’s negative emotions and stomach contents, Leo checks out Age of Wonders: Planetfall, Bcom goes gaga for A Star is Born and has a nit to pick with Star Trek: Picard) 12:19 - Chihayafuru 3 (Ep. 15) 20:33 - Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!

    Nerdom and Other Nonsense Anime Podcast #118 - Winter 2020 First Impressions - Part 2

    Kat, Leo, and Bcom are back with the second half of their first impressions of the Winter 2020 anime season! There are a lot of trashy shows to be covered among the anime that premiered a bit later in the season, but we do our best to find some hidden gems hiding beneath Funimation’s rejection pile. Certain shows always manage to rise To The Top, and The Wall commands you to stay tuned until the end of the podcast when we vote for our 8 favorite shows this season! Recorded February 16, 2020.
