    #124 - Con-versations: Animazement 2022

    An anime convention happened, and we happened to be there. Here us chat about the good, the great, the so-so, and the unexpected of Animazement 2022! Topics include the panels we did, popular cosplays, the great tornado evacuation, and other choice reflections.

    Huge thanks to the convention for bringing us out as Featured Panelists for a second time. We had a blast and really appreciate it!

    #123 - Night on the Galactic Railroad (& other Kenji Miyazawa anime)

    #123 - Night on the Galactic Railroad (& other Kenji Miyazawa anime)

    Put on your otter-skin coats for a journey into some classic Japanese children's literature. On this episode, Austin and Bill are talking about the 1985 classic anime movie Night on the Galactic Railroad based on the influential children's novel by Kenji Miyazawa. We're also talking about some adjacent anime including 1997's Spring and Chaos and 2012's The Life of Budori Gusuko. In the pre-show we talk about what we've been watching in the current anime season including Spy X Family, Ya Boi Kongming, and Birdy Wing. We recorded this a few weeks back so we're not completely up-to-date but it's good enough. Anyways, hope you enjoy the episode! Why are they cats? I guess you'll find out.

    #122 - Our Top 15 Anime MOVIES of the Two-Thousand-Tens

    #122 - Our Top 15 Anime MOVIES of the Two-Thousand-Tens

    Here it is! Our Definitive Top 15 ranking of the best anime movies of the 2010s. We said we were going to do this all the way back in episode 89 where we talked about our favorite TV series' of the decade, but shortly after that a little global pandemic came along and garbled our brains. Two years and 20+ episodes later, we finally came through! Please enjoy this fun episode that pretty well defines our tastes as a podcast.



    Shout out to the Insert Credit Podcast for the template that we borrowed to do our rankings. If you have an issue with our list, cry to us on social media about it! Do it! For those that don't want to listen and just want our list, you can check it out on Austin's Anime-Planet profile here.

    #121 - Junji Ito’s Fragments of Horror (Manga)

    It's almost April, and you know what that means... we're only 6 months away from Halloween! Why not get the party started early with another episode covering a Junji Ito work, this time his anthology piece Fragments of Horror.

    Published between 2013 and 2014, this is one of Junji Ito's more recent works and many of the stories therein were adapted into the 2018 anime series, The Junji Ito Collection. The short stories in this collection are Futon, Wooden Spirit, Tomio: Red Turtleneck, Gentle Goodbye, Dissection Girl, Blackbird, Magami Nanakuse, and Whispering Woman.

    Hosted by Tori (@WorstWaifu) and Bill (@wbforeman999)!

    #120 - Girls’ Last Tour feat. BokuSatchii

    #120 - Girls’ Last Tour feat. BokuSatchii

    To continue our recent seasonal theme of reviewing anime with snow in them (see: Fate/Zero), we're back with a review of the post-apocalyptic iyashikei (meaning healing) series, 2017's Girls' Last Tour! But wait, is it possible for an anime to be post-apocalyptic and an iyashikei series at the same time? Excellent question. Listen to the episode and find out.


    Austin hosts the show this week joined by long-time absentee member, Andrew, who provides commentary on the series' iyashikei elements as well as its World War aesthetics. Additionally, we have a brand new guest to the podcast; anime panelist and blogger Robby a.k.a. BokuSatchii. You may know him from Twitter and/or his numerous panels at Anime Weekend Atlanta, NakaCon, Anime Lockdown, and Crunchyroll Expo Online. Robby has been a friend of the show for a good bit and was happy to come on to discuss his favorite anime of the 2010s.


    You can check out BokuSatchii's work over on his blog here: https://satchiikoma.wordpress.com/

    #119 - Best Anime WE Watched in 2021

    #119 - Best Anime WE Watched in 2021

    We watched a LOT of anime in 2021, and not all of it was released then. So instead of doing a "Best of 2021" list, we just had a casual conversation about some of the shows we watched including Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Hinamatsuri, My Life as a Villainess, Wave! Listen to Me, Sound of the Sky, and Giant Robo; and of course some actual 2021 releases like Odd Taxi, Godzilla Singular Point, Zombie Land Saga R, Pui Pui Molcar, and Evangelion 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time (yes, you legally have to write out the full title).


    Hosted this time by Austin (@bebopshock) and Bill (@wbforeman999).

Third Impact Anime is my favorite anime podcast

The hosts all have great insight and the range of topics covers a lot of aspects of anime. Each episode on a show I love makes me think about it on a deeper level, and every episode on something I don’t know always leaves me wanting to experience something new. Definitely recommend for any level of anime appreciators.
