Anime World Order Show # 228 – The Gang Attempts to Lose Patreon Backers
In a last-ditch effort to not review Hand Shakers, we decide to make a bunch of anger-inducing statements about anime, mecha, and conventions before reviewing the latest--and perhaps actually final this time--Hayao Miyazaki film, the critically acclaimed The Boy and the Heron. Visit www.animeworldorder.com for full show notes and supplemental links.
Anime World Order Show # 227 – Not Much Ion Fury but Very Much an Ion Maiden, Featuring Shoujo Sundae
For our first episode of 2024 we are joined by the two cohosts of the Shoujo Sundae podcast, Giana Luna and Chika Supreme, as we review the manga ION by Arina Tanemura. Apologies are in order, for despite the episode number, this podcast does not contain Jackée. Visit www.animeworldorder.com for full show notes and supplemental links.
Anime World Order Show # 226 - The Second, and Perhaps Ultimate, Holiday Roundup
We're finally legal, for this episode of AWO marks the start of our 18th year of anime podcasting! Let's celebrate with another holiday roundup of anime Christmas episodes, organized from "least evocative of Wham's Last Christmas" to...MOST EVOCATIVE~!

Anime World Order Show # 225 - 2x2 Ninja Consultant Nonsense Trivia, 2023 Edition
After vanishing--NINJA vanishing--for nearly a decade to start raising a family in NYC, we're reunited with Erin and Noah of the long-defunct Ninja Consultant podcast (and Livejournal!) for the annual pre-Thanksgiving tradition that is THE TRIVIA EPISODE~!. Lots of new gimmicks this time around, be it game types or the fact that our Patreon supporters at the $5 and up tiers were able to watch this carnage unfold live on video courtesy of our Discord! Just take a gander at what you missed out on. Visit www.animeworldorder.com for full show notes and supplemental links.
Anime World Order Show # 224 - The Crime Is Drinking Budweiser After Showering, The Sentence is Death
Mike Toole returns to the show for this MONSTER CHILLER HORROR edition of AWO released on Halloween, in which Gerald reviews the polar opposite of The Poe Clan: Go Nagai's Shuten Doji! Now that we've done this, the YouTubers can follow in our wake and make this one a meme darling. Visit www.animeworldorder.com for full show notes and supplemental links.
Anime World Order Show # 223 – Some Might Consider This Moto Hagiography
This is perhaps our most tragic episode ever, for not only have we lost our sole sponsor Right Stuf due to Crunchyroll shutting it down, but Clarissa is reviewing The Poe Clan, one of the great shojo manga masterworks by Moto Hagio. Visit www.animeworldorder.com for full show notes and supplemental links.
Essential Since 2006
You can’t find another anime podcast trio with the knowledge and chemistry they have even after all these years.
The only anime podcast you need
Top reviews about anime classics, hidden gems and occasionally mainstream. Very knowledgeable hosts with much experience.
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.
