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.

Kat, Leo, and Bcom are back with the second half of their first impressions of the Winter 2020 anime season!

Leo, Bcom, and Kat are back to finish off the Fall 2019 anime season and give you their final scores.

Nerdom and Other Nonsense Anime Podcast #115 - Oberstein's Expired Dairy Milk
Kat, Leo, and Bcom are back…from the future…with a review of weeks 3 and 4 of the Fall 2019 anime season. As you’ll hear Leo say at the beginning of this episode, we were “trying to catch up,” but we totally didn’t. This episode was delayed for various reasons, but mostly because Bcom had a lot on his plate towards the end of 2019 and couldn’t get the episode edited. Despite the tardiness of the episode, we hope our listeners will still enjoy our early thoughts on the shows we chose to follow during the Fall season, and our usual shenanigans. Recorded December 3, 2019.

Nerdom and Other Nonsense Anime Podcast #114 - Fall 2019 First Impressions - Part 2
Kat, Leo, and Bcom are back with the second half of their first impressions of the Fall 2019 anime season! Bcom kicks off the podcast by dishing out info on all of the anime screenings he saw in or around AnimeNYC. These included Konosuba – Legend of Crimson, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!, Fragtime, and Weathering With You. Then we cover the second half of new premieres for the season. Bcom explains why Kandagawa Jet Girls is the greatest anime of our generation. The Stars have aligned, whether they be Beast or human, but Leo’s more concerned with beasts Rising Up. Kat and Leo try to understand Chihayafuru since they ignored Bcom’s pleadings over the past year to catch up on the previous seasons of the show, which was as frustrating as it was hilarious. Kat makes a case for covering My Hero Academia season 4, and Leo makes a case for only paying attention to the pictures while “reading” the manga. Stay tuned until the final segment of the podcast where we vote on the top 8 shows that we’ll be following throughout this season. Recorded November 20, 2019.

The comprehensive package
Excellent podcast with great hosts. Spoiler filled, but great for keeping up to date with the current seasonal lineup. This is where you go if you see an initial episode of anime, but aren't sure if you should follow it!
My alias is traceur
I just wanted to say thank you guys for everything you do, I’m very sick and listening to you guys talk about my favorite entertainment brings joy to my life. I hope you keep it up and bring a lot of joy to everyone else’s life like you did mine sincerely traceur.
Lots of fun
Just recently started listening but I enjoy the atmosphere of the podcast. Plus the hosts seem to have a good time. Looking forward to future episodes!
