Best anime podcast out there.
I’ve been through so many other podcasts about anime that feature nothing but snide “nerds” who haven’t seen anything made before 2010 and are more annoying than enjoyable. I love this show and it’s nice to hear three different opinions plus a huge knowledge of all types of anime. Do I disagree with their opinions? (Especially Gerald?) Sometimes, sure. But most of the time they are right on and when they don’t like something, at least they explain why. Please keep going forever.
Fallen from grace.........
I've been listening to these guys since 2006, and even wrote a review for them back in 2007.
The show has fallen far indeed. They can't seem to keep their mouths shut about politics in this ANIME podcast. In the latest episode #204, it only took them 90 seconds into the episode to take stabs at Trump. I personally can't stand Trump, but that's not the point. This is an ANIME podcast. And you guys were one of the first ANIME podcasts.
You simply must do better. You've been better. You can do so again. Or not, it's your choice.
Best place for anime fans
This is not a show to listen to if you’re skimming the top titles in the world but for people who are going deeper in the subculture. It’s not easy to find people who have been in the subculture as long as I have on any media so this is a nice podcast to relate with.
