Ever have one of those shows where you started three times over, finally think you’ve solved the problems, only to find out as you are editing the show that everything went horribly wrong? Yeah, this is that kind of show. TC talked about seriously buying a new microphone to upgrade his old equipment handed down by Ichigo, and Red thinks thats’s a really good idea, like, today. Alas, dear listeners, you will need to put up with this terrible quality for this weeks show. After a brief talk about the passing of Leonard Nimoy, TC and Red jump into news with talks about body pillows that don’t like to be touched, McDonalds Japan trying to be more like a Starbucks, and tropes that even female anime watchers are sick and tired of. Then Red ushers in the discussion thread, bringing up the question of what makes an anime an anime? And finally it’s into reviews. Red kicks it off with the fujoshi bait Black Butler – Book of Circus, and TC with Wife bring up the rear with the not-so-virgin Maria the Virgin Witch.

This week on VG Pulse, we again tread forth into the unknown without any supervision, but hopefully we navigate the darkness alright! We start off with sidenotes of school and snowstorms, before diving into the regular news where we discuss Nintendo’s latest mind-boggling developments as well as the good news of jail time for swatters! After the news we decide to let the forums go for another week, and finish off with Millennium’s first look of The Evil Within! All this and more up next on VGP 218! -Aki Read more>>

Finally, a show that focuses on the manga. You’d almost think we’ve done one of these once in awhile or something. Through the magic of circumstance we both managed to do some slice of life mangas at the same time. Considering how dull they usually are, it’s nothing short of a miracle if we generated some entertainment from them.

Tim talks about Saikyou Densetsu Kurosawa. It’s a slice of life about a socially awkward construction worker who wants desperately to be popular. He decides that he will find way, in his simple and methodical way, to win the hearts and minds of his coworkers. Being socially inept, he fails multiple times. And while the story isn’t as excruciating as some it only earns a borders.

Weltall then discusses Cheese in the Trap, a manwha. Like the lives of some people we must all know, at some point, it goes nowhere and does nothing. Sort of like a fat pigeon glued to a manhole cover. It’s about a girl who resents a boy for reasons the author doesn’t want to elaborate upon. Without any character growth or substance to speak of, it too earned itself a borders.

Hello everyone, Red here. As you may or may not know the 2015 Podcast Awards are now beginning, and as they always do it starts out with nominations. We were able to make it into the nominations and into the main voting round last year, but we fell short in the final voting round behind The Moth. Personally I think NPR related shows hog way too much of the podcast awards, but as they are a publicly sponsored production I can’t rail on them for being corporate slaves.

So as with last year I would like to take a moment and ask that you guys, our listeners, our fans, our members, our subscribers, everyone, go and fill out the nominations for the Podcast Awards. I’d like to see us shoot for the People’s Choice and the Cultural/Arts categories, so go ahead and add us in for both of them.

Now you can only vote ONCE, so if you have any other podcasts you’d like to submit for a certain category, take your time and do so. Now if you don’t have any other podcasts or you don’t want to be bothered to do more work then I’m asking you to do, that’s ok, you can just fill out the two categories I’d like Anime Pulse to be entered into and submit that.

Here is the link to click that will take you to the Podcast Awards website:

http://podcastawards.com

Assuming we make it past nominations, then I’ll make another post to remind everyone to vote.

I’ll also mention this on our next show this coming sunday, just in case you don’t visit the front page as often as I do.

Thank you for your time, and wish us good luck!

Originally, we were only scheduled to have an interview with Laura Post. Lucky for us, she brought along some friends of hers, who just happened to also be guests! So we sat down for a nice little chat with Laura (Ahri in League of Legends, Rosalia in Sword Art Online), Lisle Wilkerson (Tekken, Street Fighter), and Julie Rei Goldstein (Risai in Paradise Kiss and Precia Testarossa in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha).

So as many of you have seen on the TV or the internet, a magnitude 8.9 earthquake hit about 80 miles off the coast of Sendai, Japan. Over the following 3 hours about 13 6+ magnitude aftershocks also hit. Sendai was hit by a catastrophic tsunami, Tokyo ground to a halt, lots of chaos. I just wanted to let you all know that I am fine, my wife and the rest of my family and friends in Osaka and Tokyo are all ok. Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and queries via email and twitter.
