AGP#173 – Planetes
It‘s another Golden Ticket episode! On request from patron Nice (that’s their name), Evan and David review the 2003 hard sci-fi anime series Planetes, about space debris haulers. But because Evan is Evan, he also read the manga, so this discussion includes both the anime and Makoto Yukimura’s original manga series. How does this beloved series hold up nearly 20 years later? Topics include: space ninjas, frozen poop, and GO TO THERAPY HACHI. Send us feedback at email@example.com! Show notes, links, comments, and more can be found at http://anigamers.com/podcast.

UNLOCKED: Ani-Gamers Book Club: KonoSuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World! Volume 1
(Originally published on March 4, 2020 on the Ani-Gamers Patreon) What's up, readers, hope you like stories about getting sent to other worlds, because we got another isekai light novel for you on this second episode of the Ani-Gamers Book Club, run by me, David "at-sign QX20XX" Estrella from the Ani-Gamers Podcast. I have a nice chat with my cohost, Anarchy "Uncle Nax" Inaki, about the first volume of KonoSuba, a book about a bunch of underachieving dimwits in a fantasy world struggling not to get each other killed by their unrepentant stupidity. Catch us next month when we discuss a book about a girl reborn in another world as a spider.
Been listening for years
Evan and David are great at what they do and I’m always stoked to see a new episode show up in my feed! The three houses episode alone convinced me to get the game and ai’m glad it did.
Good mild curry soft boys
These guys are the best boys of anime and video games. I came ‘cause I’m a weeb but stayed for Evan’s high level jokes. On the real though, David and Evan have a great podcast and everyone should listen to them.
Hottest Takes From the Softest Boys
