As we didn’t attend the yearly pilgrimage to the San Diego, as press, we aren’t dedicating an entire show to recapping. Weltall did go solo and was able to note a few major changes. Such as the complete absence of con funk! And if you didn’t know we were lying, you’ve never been to a con. Weltall does report improved crowd control and access which has smoothed things out quite a bit.

The joint discussion is on a relic from the nineties, From Dusk Til Dawn(1996). It features George Clooney attempting menace while Quentin Tarantino tries to swallow Selma Hayek’s right foot. We decided that the movie has a point where Quentin lost interest and just said “fuck it, everybody turns into vampires and dies.” A mister R.R. Martin would probably mistake the end for a wedding if he glanced up at it. Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 57: Ghost Dawn

So we haven’t heard any threats, veiled or otherwise, regarding the site’s visual facelift. If anyone was going to send us a murder-gram, we figure it would have happened already. Having not, we assume that everyone is pleased and glad to see. Also, we want to remind folks that the forums are alive and ready for action. We have pruned down the maze into something more straight forward regarding the shows. Continue reading Manga Pulse 352: Dino Ming

IRL news about Hacksaw Ridge, Pokemon Sun, and new jobs that smell like overbearing fruits and flowers. Industry news covers topics like the difficulty in addressing homosexuality in anime, and who is earning the top dollar working with anime. Reviews this week are of Pan de Peace and JoJo, one is about a group of girls who like bread a little too much and the other is about muscle bound men fighting each other with their personas. I’ll let you guess which one is which.

This week on VG Pulse, we have a lengthy show full of stories and rants! We start off with side notes of Pokemon, the uselessness of the post office, and animes! Then diving into the regular news where we go over the stupidity of pirates, Ubisoft’s current situation with Vivendi, and four guys using Fifa to commit fraud! After the news, I give a review of FNAF: Sister Location, and we finish off with talk of anime, Gamestop adventures, and politics! (Because we really needed to have FNAF and politics in the same show!) All this and more up next on VGP 268! -Aki Continue reading VG Pulse 268: Five Nights At Hillary’s

Manga Pulse 351: Stuff and Things

This week we did the show just before our local Comic-Con. Which was impressive as we’re pretty lazy and tend to slack on shows around convention times. The only thing we figure is someone left us a brick of cocaine which we dropped into our tea. Nothing quite like powdered motivation to ensure we get things done.

Tim reviews, apparently, a sequel to something we’ve already reviewed, Freezing Zero. Way back when we were still in the one hundreds(Tim believed it was in the 120’s though it was 177) one of us did the manga Freezing. This is the spin off which features, presumably, the same main character. Tim describes it as Evangelion, swapping out Shinji for a Tits McGee and Angels for Novas. While it attempts to spice things up with exposed nipples, it’s far too boring to be interesting. It gets Burn It for being an obnoxious clone.

Weltall then talks about Musunde Hiraite(by Minase Mayu). We specified the author as just image searching the name pulls up pictures that have nothing to do with the manga Weltall reviewed. It’s a bit confusing as it doesn’t follow the format we’re quite used to. The first chapter revolves around one person desperately trying to confess to a girl. Then a character from that chapter gets a promotion to protagonist for the second chapter. The unique storytelling device was interesting by not buttressed by enough story to earn more than a Borders.

It’s another episode of Anime Pulse, like Red always introduces it as such. IRL news is up first with discussions of Hellsing Abridged, job hunting, and Dr. Strange. Industry News has monster girl contests and yummy pocket monsters, and reviews consist of a lazy computer programmer in “Battle Programmer Shirase” and a reluctant magical girl in “Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara.”
