Joseph’s all alone again, playing both the host and cohost this week. After explaining why this is, he proceeds to announce the winner of the contest for cohost! A big round of applause to everyone who participated, and look forward to hearing more detailed reviews from Andrew Chan. Aside from the announcement there is your usual fair of IRL and industry news, followed by Joseph’s review of the humor educing KonoSuba. Season 1 that is.
Another week another participant in the race for cohost, this time it’s Andrew Chan who brings a little European to the show. He also has quite the introduction for us, one that even has Joseph happily chiming in. Speaking of the host, he’s doing rather well at his new job. Industry news comes in pretty late with topics like getting Otakus to run, and the top 10 anime of spring 2017. Reviews also run pretty long with Joseph jaunting through a magical academy’s story, and Andrew detailing in great depth why a video game about being a lawyer does not transition to an anime very well. Hope you went to the bathroom, because this is quite the lengthy trip.
It’s round 3 this week on Anime Pulse and that means a new co-host, this time it’s Catam the pizza maker. After introducing himself and allowing Joseph to reminisce on the old days of Toonami, we hear a little more about how Joseph has been with his new job. Then it’s onto industry news with topics like an old sword returned to its rightful owners, as well as the horrifying news that a live-action Cowboy Bebop might be on its way to being made in the USA. Lastly are reviews with Catam taking us to a city called Lawless during the prohibition period, and Joseph introduces us to Arslan and his epic tale.
Round 2, fight! Joseph welcomes aboard yet another who is trying out for the position of co-host, this time it is Roxas Lamprugne from the forums. After some brief introduction, we get IRL news from Joseph who has at long last landed a job! Then we move on to industry news about Dragon Ball being shunned, and people who think blaming fiction for their behavior is a reasonable defense. And to wrap things up is a joint review of Bones: The Anime, pretty but boring.
Round 1 of the Anime Pulse co-host selections have begun, our first participant is Adrien from Belgium. After introducing himself and giving us his life story till now, Joseph picks up IRL news and tells us about his opinions on Wonder Woman. Then is Industry news where we talk about the idol industry in Japan, and the financial problems that animators in the industry face. Ans last but not least are the reviews, Joseph having fun in the virtual world of Overlord and Adrien playing us a tune of Hibike! Euphonium.
Holy schmoly, these episodes go super fast with just one person! With Ryo gone, Red has decided to change some things. First up is his identity, followed by some really fast IRL news. Industry news brings us untrue rumors of Miyazaki retiring, as well as a warning about the foul-tasting sandwich served at the Tokyo Ghoul themed cafe. Then is probably the fastest review on Anime Pulse to date, as Red quickly covers the anime Jitsu wa Watashi wa.
That’s it folks, Ryo is out of the game. This week on Anime Pulse we learn Red’s co-host is leaving, meaning if you’ve ever wanted to be the co-host on a semi-successful anime podcast well now is the time! Aside from this shocking bit of news, there is still the usual show. IRL news covering Ryo’s hectic lifestyle, and Red’s thoughts on the most recent Pirates movie. Then there’s industry news about Sanrio Boys and Japan amending their constitution, swiftly followed by reviews of very young landlords and really bad anime.
