Another week, another episode of Anime Pulse. On this show Joseph has gone full Shokugeki on some chicken breast, and Andrew went skiing into some big burley men. Industry news sees topics like anime previews on YouTube being too risqué, and a top politician in Japan dressing up like Kirito. This is also our fourth and final week of full-on previews with Joseph talking about a gamer girl, and Andrew lining up and knocking down several anime about cute girls doing funny things.

This week on Anime Pulse Joseph and Andrew are taking a second stab at recording, because Joseph forgot to charge his headphones. After not making a big deal of losing 10 minutes of recording, the two jump into IRL news where Joseph talks about getting lucky in Fire Emblem Heroes and Andrew asks us what anime character we’d like to meet IRL. Industry news brings us topics like a manga about trolling being canned and an anime film about Made in the Abyss being announced. And finally the previews roll in with Joseph talking about demon lords, and Andrew glosses over Idols and Music.
Hello dearest listeners.

Something’s happened. We seem to have some sort of fever and lightheadedness. Accompanied by the smell of sulfur and an acrid smokey smell. No, Tim’s mother hasn’t appeared within a pentacle. We’ve caught the fever of Amon and he’s contagious. Continue reading Manga Pulse 384: DevilDevilDevil Man

As the second episode of Summer 2018 previews, Joseph and Andrew have plenty more anime to introduce. Before they get to that though, IRL news comes in with Joseph getting a raise and Andrew talking about your favorite killers in anime. Afterwards there’s the industry news with topics like proposing with Pokemon, a new Evangelion movie, and watching movies in a bathtub. And then the previews hit us with more disappointment for Joseph, and Andrew heading to the beach to play extreme beach volleyball.
This week on Anime Pulse, Joseph regales us with his loss of interest in Fire Emblem Heroes and Andrew quickly moves into the forum topic of favorite AMVs; Joseph shares his and so does Andrew. Afterwards the two get to news from the industry, with topics like a man who spent over $1000 on cardboard cutouts and old visual novels making their way to English fans after a successful kickstarter. Finally come the previews, as Joseph talks about gender reassignment and straight shota and Andrew brings up happy times in murder and psychological horror.
We decided on doing something a little unorthodox for us. Instead of settling on a movie that Tim has to scour second hand or that Weltall has just happened to see we picked something in the theaters. And so we choose Upgrade.
Or at least we would have jointly discussed it if Tim had bothered to go and see it. Sure he made some excuse about going on vacation in Tennessee as though they have yet to have received the gift of the motion picture in the south. It wasn’t helped by the fact that the movie was released on June 1st and has vanished from most theaters in just over two weeks. Apparently this movie is Hollywood’s awkward junior high phase and they want to bury it with all of those bad memories. A shame considering that it’s a much better movie than even the trailers make it out to be.
Michael Keaton has had quite an interesting career. Per request, Tim is talking about White Noise. It’s one of those films that takes a lesser known paranormal phenomenon and has no idea what to do with it. In it, the wife of Keaton dies and starts talking to him through EVP. This leads Keaton to finding a murderer who was also listening to the dead but they were telling him to kill for reasons that no one can even postulate.
Weltall then talks about Death Wish. One of the few newer movies that Tim has actually seen and was able to comment on. If only he was as prepared when it came to the movie we planned and agreed upon. It features a large measure of restraint from Eli Roth who didn’t turn it into an hour and a half of Bruce Willis practicing street surgery on those anyone within a mile radius of his wife’s death.
