    Episode 85 – The Everlong Dichotomy of Life

    Episode 85 – The Everlong Dichotomy of Life

    In MemoriamKirby Morrow1973-2020



    As we step closer and closer to finally closing the book on the year 2020, it’s important to know the tremendous weight it has brought along with it has been, in so many ways, insurmountable. From the major calamities to the more personal struggles, this year is leaving a gigantic impact on just about everyone. And as we step closer to casting this year off, it is just as important to remember the calamity that wreaked havoc, from the macro to the micro, so that we can work to better ourselves, and each other, in the year and years to follow. The sad truth is, though, that we all have a lot of work to do to get to the point where we can all better ourselves and each other, and that we cannot forget what has come about and those we have lost throughout the year.



    We live, we lose, we learn, we move forward. That is the nature of life, and is also the nature of this show, with moments to mourn from our past and present but also moments to look toward our future.

    Episode 84 – The Way of the Pile!

    Episode 84 – The Way of the Pile!

    Let’s keep it real, it’s been a VERY long week. A very long and drawn-out week that’s just about worn everyone out. But the cycle for this show continues in earnest, all in spite of an ever-shifting climate or climates. So, for this show, we have the low-down on the Netflix anime presentation event and a certain househusband that’s coming along with it, some dub casts with some wishes being granted, those damn MONKEY PAWS curling up time and time again, and the latest on just how much money the Demon Slayer film has made in Japan so far. But that’s just the tip of what’s to come from THE PILE: when all of the news builds up after a season recap show so we have to spend extra time going through it all. As has become tradition, really.



    And a wild Stephanie from Dub Talk will appear every so often in this show, as well. We enjoy the company.

    Episode 83 – The Autumnal Round Table Buffet!

    Episode 83 – The Autumnal Round Table Buffet!

    It’s finally starting to cool down, the leaves are changing colors, and pumpkin spice lattes have been back on the menu for a while now. Yep, it’s fall, and with it comes an absolutely LOADED anime season for us to dig into – so loaded, in fact, that we had to call on some outside help just to get through most of these shows. So join us, along with Megan from Dub Talk and Sketch from… well, everywhere on the internet, as we go through the highs and lows and everything in between for the fall anime season – you’ll be left with tons of questions from Yashahime, bewildered and amused by Hypnosis Mic, and left wondering who in their right mind thought Noblesse was a good idea, with tons more discussion to be had all throughout the show!



    Also, make sure to do your part by Tuesday evening. There’s a lot at stake.

    Episode 82 – EVA’s 25th Anniversary Jackpot!

    Episode 82 – EVA’s 25th Anniversary Jackpot!

    You would think that we’d install some kind of fire-retardant materials of some kind to make sure our newsroom doesn’t explode when something big happens. Alas, it keeps happening, hence why another episode is coming out so soon. Such a cause of an explosion? Several, actually – a GODZILLA anime, Log Horizon seemingly finding a new home over here, the first look at the latest installment in the Gridman universe, and the long-awaited return of… THE BEAST. The impossible dream has been achieved, Evangelion is coming back to home video next year, and not just in the UK this time – all of that and more in this show, do enjoy.



    Side note, did you all know that Eddie Van Halen was part of the Brian May “Star Fleet” track? Yeah, he’s on there.

    Episode 81 – The Progressive Future Outlook

    In MemoriamKosei Tomita1936-2020



    At the heart of it all, this is a very silly show where a group of folks come together to talk and snark about anime, so please keep that in mind when listening to some very hammy and over-exaggerated reactions happen over certain shows. With that in mind, as we prepare for our fall season undertaking, we’re also looking ahead to see what the winter season has in store for us while also taking some detours into the world of strange Kickstarter project ramifications, the world of Pokémon in both the anime and meta contexts, and some home video stuff that can certainly consist of the good, bad, AND ugly.



    Also, be on the lookout for a cameo from a wild Stephanie from Dub Talk. She manages to find her way onto these shows and we welcome the added snarking and dunking provided.

    Episode 80 – The Discotek SmackDown!

    Even in the midst of cataclysmic chaos the world over, Discotek finds a way to bring us all together to join in the glory of old-ish anime titles coming back for a second chance at fandom life, and with how big of a deal these Discotek Days are you just know that we’re on the case to dive deep into the announcements, the plunder, and all of the joyous wonderment that such a day can bring to all of us. And also on deck, rounding out a fairly-sized show, are the announcements of Funimation acquiring Violet Evergarden, the Shirobako dub cast, Akira coming to 4K Blu-ray this Christmas, and the final stop of a long-running joke of this show for many years: BIG ORDER has a new home.



    Also, Stephanie from Dub Talk is back with us – mostly to dunk on Andrew and praise the glory of Satoshi Kon. Not necessarily in that order, either.
