    Episode 168 – The February of Our Discourse Discontent.

    Episode 168 – The February of Our Discourse Discontent.

    As we inch closer and closer out of the winter doldrums, we find more and more cases of rabid internet discourse popping up and it just makes us ask one thing: whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. We don't like talking about these things, but alas, it is our duty to discuss certain elements of discussion with these topics, namely the topic of what NOT to do when you're working on a major anime dub production (yes, THAT) as well as the unknown future of a post-Funimation world with that side of the service set to shut down and sunset on April 2nd. Not a very fun time, right now. But we can take solace in the fact that the five-year "LOLsuit" saga seems to finally be at an end, AnimEigo is under new and well-known ownership, and Crunchyroll has more than four Blu-ray releases set to come out in May for the first time in a while. See, it's not ALL bad, it's just sorta bad. But we'll all wade through the murky waters together, and our good friend Sketch is back to fill in for this treacherous journey.



    P.S. March may be a bit spotty with shows due to some outside circumstances. Apologies in advance.

    Episode 167 – The Fate-ful Winter Payday!

    Episode 167 – The Fate-ful Winter Payday!

    HEADS UP: some of the audio is a little crunchy. Weird things happened with some of the recording. We’ll try to not let that happen next time.



    The sluggish days of winter are here and we're all feeling it around here. We're all a bit tired and we're still trying to wade through our shifting schedules, so pardon any additional dust around here as we work to make the best of an ever-evolving situation. In the meantime, while there are some serious matters to discuss here, there are also a bit of good matters worth talking about, a large amount of dub cast for the season, and hopefully the first bit of the END of a five-year saga that's so unbelievably stupid it's not worth going all the way back to for discussion. Let's just laugh at the disgraced sex pest who will owe half a million dollars to those whom he attempted to silence into submission and committed career suicide as a result of it.



    Enjoy the festivities on Sunday, too. You know the ones.

    28:54 - From Me to You updated with English dub on Netflix
    31:14 - the winter dub cast rundown
    57:36 - the new MHA movie is named

    Episode 166 – The 2-For-1 Bonanza Blitz!

    Episode 166 – The 2-For-1 Bonanza Blitz!

    Welcome to 2024 and welcome to a new year of this stilly dog-and-pony show we do every so often. We're back in a big way, basically putting together two whole shows in one, recounting the fall season and 2023 as a whole while looking forward to "award season" in one certain aspect and going through the latest pants-filling announcements from Discotek media - one such announcement was very "berserk" in a way, hint hint. And along the way, we've got news on the next show premiering on Toonami next month, how much money the Macross II Kickstarter raised, Monogatari making a comeback, and even a pair of pretty *ecchi* shows making their way down the pipeline. You heard that right.



    To go along with this, there is also an update for the future scheduling of this show - going forward, there will be no set schedule for when the show will go up besides "it'll be up when it's up," and that's mostly due to our very varied and ever-evolving schedules conflicting with our fun passion hobby of talking anime amongst one another for a few hours every few weeks. So just keep a look out on your podcast platforms of choice (shoutout to Overcast, for one) and on the main site for this show for when new episodes will be up and available.



    Thanks for reading. Enjoy the show.

    Episode 165 – The Year Jump Festa Went Crazy!

    Episode 165 – The Year Jump Festa Went Crazy!

    As 2023 comes to an end, you all may have varying feelings about the year as a whole. For some it was good, for others it was bad, and for the rest it was just very... meh. But we hope to leave the year for all of you on a better note, namely with about two and a half hours of anime discussion to listen to while you're all doing things during your Christmas holiday. Namely, a good bit of wild announcements from Jump Festa across the board, some interesting bits from Netflix regarding what people were watching this year, some upcoming second and third and fourth seasons recently announced, and even a good bit of news for Macross fans - the Macross II Kickstarter is live, so go to it and prepare your wallets for that sweet goodness to come next year.



    Thanks for listening throughout the year, and have a merry and happy whatever holiday you celebrate. We'll see you in the new year.

    Episode 164 – Yet Another New York Minute!

    After a long Thanksgiving weekend, the grind continues onward - if only for one more week as Anime NYC was quite the event to look back on as opposed to the litany of terrible news we have to go through on this episode. We're all really just limping to the end of the year, in a way. But we carry on, if only for our own sense of self-worth and in honor of the greatest man who ever lived: Kento Nanami.

    The Black Friday Discotek Day Marathon! (Best-Of)

    The Black Friday Discotek Day Marathon! (Best-Of)

    Happy Black Friday and/or Small Business Saturday and/or Cyber Monday - the best time of the year for reckless spending on random stuff nobody really needs but the deals are just way too good to pass up - and to help bide the time while you're out shopping (or endlessly browsing Amazon) here's a very long best-of compilation of our past "Discotek Day" events for you all to listen and look back on... for nearly NINE HOURS. Now, in response to the question of "but WHY tho?" the answer is simple: sometimes some ideas are just dumb enough to work. This is nearly a half-gigabyte of audio that took up 22 gigabytes of project files to put together and it will serve as a fine resource of the wonderful madness that the people of Discotek Media give to all of us - to note, this is NOT sponsored in any way, we're just big fans of their work.



    Stay tuned for our next new episode coming up this weekend, talking Anime NYC and a whole lot more.
