And finally in reviews, Andrew is the only one to offer anything with his super powered take on hot froggy girls.

This week on Anime Pulse, there’s no intro music! That’s right, Joseph has put his foot down and has decided to make our dear listeners find something better to use for the intro; because apparently they don’t like the current one. After that bit, Joseph talks about enjoying Labor Day and Andrew reads several essays in response to this weeks forum question.

Manga Pulse 385: King Stalker

I think it may be time once more for a couple of manga. Handpicked by our inexpert staff who can barely manage to punch manga titles into the mighty oracle itself. At least they actually remember to prepare and be read by this episode. Instead of desperately attempting to catch up on the chapters required while the other mumbles their way through a review.

Tim has a request, The King’s Avatar. It’s a manhua where a man stumbles into a gaming cafe and takes over for the manager and demonstrates how awesome he is by making her win the match in a few minutes. It’s revealed he played pro in an MMO but, for reasons we have yet to see, was forced to give it up and leave. The interesting part is him trying to work his way back up while going over meta strategy of gaming. The dull part is seeing him “in the game” as his character which drops it to a Borders.

Weltall’s review, Ijousha no Ai, begins innocently enough when our main character is in elementary school receiving a confession. Elated, he offers to walk her home later. Shortly after, another girl confesses. Main finds her creepy and says he would but there’s this other girl see. So she goes off to kill the other girl. Main is still troubled seven years later when another girl becomes interested in him after he starts seeing his crazy stalker out of the corner of his eye. As with so many psychological slashers we review, it gets a Read It Now.

Practice your evil laughter with us on this episode of Anime Pulse After Dark! Continue reading After Dark 30: Convoluted Non-con Corner

Popcorn Pulse 89: The Light

Let’s say you managed to make a horror movie using a, then, relatively unknown paranormal phenomenon. You’ve managed to recoup your costs and make a tidy profit to the surprise of everyone. A sane person would pick up their chips and head to the cashiers window, turn it in for a check, then head up to their now comped room for a nice rest before celebrating with a nice dinner. Someone with a gambling problem would say to let it ride and be surprised when the roulette wheel doesn’t land on thirty six a second time.

Which is how we got White Noise 2[2007]. Nathon Fillion replaces Keaton as our dad figure. When he wife and son react to their diner breakfast like they had just sampled from the desert bar at Golden Coral, they get shot to death by a passerby who turns the gun on himself. When Nate tries to kill himself and fails, he can now see auras of people who are about to die. What in the grand hell this has to do with EVP is beyond anyone’s guess.

Tim’s movie is Swiss Army Man[2016]. Daniel Radcliffe plays a corpse who befriends Paul Dano. Which makes it sounds like the autobiographical tale of Michael Cera meeting John Mcain. Dano plays a loser who may or may not get lost on an island who escapes because Radcliffe’s corpse saves him and has odd abilities like being able to snap his fingers and start fires. And the boner compass. Can’t forget the boner compass.

Weltall goes back to Youtube and finds something amazing in that it’s completely politically neutral and awesome. Ants Canada is a channel by a man who own ant colonies that put those silly farms to shame. Episodes are done with a focus on topics like trying to protect them from outsiders, finding them proper food. Getting rid of rogue escaped ants. All done with nature channel quality and enough science to keep the nature minded happy.

This week on Anime Pulse a groggy Andrew keeps on keeping on to bring us his part of the show, and Joseph gets a bit heated about officials in Switzerland denying a man his hentai. IRL news sees Joseph talk about his upcoming birthday, and Andrew rolls over into a discussion on how we Otaku feel about Moe. Industry news is jam packed this week, with Andrew hitting us with a broken Torii gate from Lucky Star and Joseph requesting a refund from a figurine maker. And with the fusion review over we jump into hybrid shows, as Joseph reviews season 3.5 of Food Wars and Andrew inspects antiques and runs a shop full of living toys.
