    Sakura Diaries: When Daddy’s Away My Cousin Comes Out to Play!

    Sakura Diaries: When Daddy’s Away My Cousin Comes Out to Play!

    Love has many faces and the Japanese really capture this, especially when it's romance between two family members and this 90's classic fits this trop perfectly. Sakura Diaries centers around the complicated relationship of high school student Urara and her childhood crush Touma. Touma comes to Tokyo to study at Cram school, but little does he know that his cousin has the hots for him, but it's not as simple as that because Dad is gone, leaving the house in their hands. Let's just say things don't stay PG.  Join us this week as we review Sakura Diaries and discuss how Netflix is influencing the anime industry.

    Tokyo Sinks 2020: The Moral and Ethical Debate of Sharing Bottled Water

    Tokyo Sinks 2020: The Moral and Ethical Debate of Sharing Bottled Water

    We've finally arrived at our small achievement of reaching 10 episodes and this will be our fifth Netflix review; these are't great odds! Come to find out, Netlflix is stepping up their game and producing exceedingly better content. This is not a bad thing per say, but our general distaste for Netflix's Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045, lingers on and it's hard to imagine this being better than BNA or Beastars. Well we took the leap of faith on a last minute binge and decided why the f**k not?! If you love Musaaki Yuasa as much as we do, then you'll want to listen to this episode! Plus we have some bonus material at the end of the episode as we discuss overhyped anime shows from years past.

    Trigger's BNA: Brand New Anime!

    Trigger's BNA: Brand New Anime!

    It's been almost a year since we saw Trigger premiere Promare at Otakon 2019, along with a sneak-peek of BNA: Brand New Animal; and with great anticipation, it's now on Netflix! You might even notice a trend on our podcast, don't worry we are not affiliated with Netflix in any shape or form. Even with some disdain from some of us, Netflix is pumping out some pretty great content and this is no exception. From Baki to Dorohedoro, from Beastars to BNA; we are continuously being surprised. This week we break down BNA and compare it to other Trigger's work we know and love. Find us and more content at https://www.otakuhostclub.com/ and join our discussion at  Dischord.

The kind of anime pod that you should be listening to

I absolute adore the hosts and their discussions. It's so apparent that they are all knowledgable about anime as they will highlight and peruse shows ranging the gamut from the far forgotten past to the recently released. There is an obvious chemistry between the group and I enjoy getting to hear their takes as they feel like the kind of people you could easily meet and talk with at any convention. This is the kind of podcast that it benefits all anime fans to listen. I recommend them and I cannot wait for them to release more content.

Mommeeeeeeeeeeeeee ,

Great Discussion

I love the discussion. The presenters have an art and business background in the subject and the discussions come from a place of knowledge, passion, and anime lifestyle. This is a go to for anime lovers.
