    Episode 131 – The Hunter’s Emergence!

    Episode 131 – The Hunter’s Emergence!

    Are you all ready for a super-deluxe-loaded fall season? We sure aren't, which is why we're all hoping for the summer season to be a bit easier for us so that we can lead into fall with a bit more ease - though that's not going to be easy with several big shows slated for premiere in October. And with the approach of summer comes convention season, with industry panels big and small and, in this case, a bit Discotek-y as well. Let's hope that Anime Expo won't leave us melting in the summer heat next month, too. Also, HUNTER X HUNTER IS COMING BACK... MAYBE... POSSIBLY... PRESUMABLY. And along with all of that discussion, there are more projects announced that have gotten our curiosity perked up, a good small morsel of sportsball integration, even more plans for trips to the movies, and yet another moment of Andrew breaking down into hilarious hysterics over a rather saucy title.



    Will ONA.exe return next time? We'll see what everyone has, first.

    Episode 130 – The SPRING x RUNDOWN!

    After some additional delays and time needed to get our spring season rundown ready, it’s finally here, and it’s another extra-packed edition that, somehow, managed to find 10 minutes to talk about the trash known as Trapped In A Dating Sim. Don’t ask us how it happens. But that’s not what you’re all here for, you’re here for the biggest new hotness since the last biggest new hotness, and we will be talking all about the spies and the families along with some big sequel titles, other notable fares that fall in the com-of-the-rom variety, and even try and piece together what the baffling mess known as Estab Life actually is.

    Episode 129 – The Spring Dub Rundown Bonanza!

    Episode 129 – The Spring Dub Rundown Bonanza!

    With our last show before diving into the spring season, it's only fitting that we have a giant slate of spring season dub casts to run down for this show - hence the surprised Anya face to serve as Andrew's exhaustion over cobbling together all of that information. And along with that, we have a wide discussion over Netflix's very bad week, some movie talk over what and what not to go see, pondering how deep that mysterious Blu-ray master vault really goes, and trying to find a way to end this show on a high note. There's enough horribleness going on in the world as it is, anyway. Stay tuned for next time, as well, where we finally go in on the spring season and probably spend a lot of time gushing over SPY x FAMILY. Which you all should be watching.

    Episode 128 – The Perplexing Season Padding Plan… PAIN.

    Episode 128 – The Perplexing Season Padding Plan… PAIN.

    Many years ago, people were comparing Attack on Titan to The Walking Dead in tone and structure. Today, those comparisons continue, only in a different form with its recent announcement. But to go along with that bafflement, there’s a lengthy discussion on some other rumblings in relation to the anime dub production scene as the spring season prepares to launch, along with some interesting updates to various productions, the latest one-shot from the cinematic auteur known as Tatsuki Fujimoto (Chainsaw Man Part 2 who?), and yet another layer to the wild Prince of Tennis dub saga. All in a day’s work for us, though.

    Episode 127 – The Announcement Barrage & The Spring Ruminations!

    Episode 127 – The Announcement Barrage & The Spring Ruminations!

    April means many things to many people, but in this case it means the end of the winter season and a long list of announcements to talk about from AnimeJapan, in which there were plenty - for good and bad - to go along with the usual rundown of Netflix projects getting revealed and dated, a small bit go house-cleaning of the winter season, an assessment of some good and awful April Fools shenanigans, and maybe, just maybe, some cursed energy sprinkled throughout. All very sudden and all unwarranted, as well.



    No, we will not be talking about THAT thing. But yes, we will talk about the thing of a certain "final season" next time.



    intro - more cursed live-action and trending scares
    6:12 - how meh was Yashahime’s ending?

    1:15:51 - Ranking of Kings manga to be retranslated
    1:19:15 - the strange saga of Sol Press
    1:25:19 - a lot of the new Prince of Tennis dub is available
    1:31:11 - RWBY: Ice Queendom anime from Shaft announced
    1:46:06 - sidebar: April Fools’ shenanigans
    1:49:23 - Masamune-kun’s Revenge S2 announced
    1:53:35 - Gundam: The Witch From Mercury details revealed
    1:57:33 - Dead Dead Demon’s Dededededestruction anime announced

    2:26:37 - second SAO Progressive film and G-Reco films dated
    2:28:27 - LiSA documentary coming soon to Netflix
    2:30:40 - June home video releases (Sentai, Aniplex, Discotek, etc.)
