This week on Anime Pulse we get to hear Joseph perform his voice acting as a southern bell for one of our listeners, and Andrew grimaces at a poll for the top most interesting anime that came from light novels. The IRL news is all about how unfair Fire Emblem Heroes has been treating Joseph, and Andrew has plenty of community stuff to cover. Industry news brings us a way to import your waifu in the real world, and a new life sized figurine that will put a $15k size hole in your wallet. And then finally the reviews are here one last time before we head into previews, with Joseph working as an author and Andrew stops talking until he can sing.
Did you like that joke episode? I hope not, because it sucked to edit. Back to the way things should be, we start off with IRL news about Joseph sneaking about in Dishonored 2 and Andrew getting around to playing Doki Doki Literature Club. The community section runs a bit long, but that’s only because there’s plenty to talk about when it comes to popular YouTubers. Industry news is rather depressing, but that’s what you get when the co-founder of Ghibli passes away and Japan’s second favorite pastime is showing sings of dying off. At least the reviews break away from the bad news, with Joseph dating a perverted girlfriend and Andrew thumbing his nose at a collection of horror stories.
Don’t you just love it when you get through almost all of something, your on the downward and out, and suddenly the thing you were working on just decides to crash? Yeah, Joseph hates that too. Technical difficulties aside, welcome to a special April Fools edition of Anime Pulse. We got IRL news about Joseph’s bad luck in Fire Emblem Heroes, and Andrew’s community segment. There’s also Industry news with topics like a bad break up in Japan, and an anime being canceled before its final two episodes were released. And in reviews Joseph has the third season of foodgasms, and Andrew flips gravity around a few times.
Ever wonder what it’s like to be the only girl in a room full of guys? Try asking Queen Inoue, she’ll know that answer. After learning that tid bit of information, come back for IRL news about lackluster Fire Emblem draws and the community section. Then industry news sees Joseph talk about virtual YouTubers, and Andrew shakes his head at the backwards thinking of Toei Animation. And finally we got reviews, with Joseph fueling his drunk wife’s bad habit and Andrew petting some pussy. Yes, I mean catgirls.
Happy Saint Patrick’s day everyone! And you know what that means? Drinking of course! Not that it’s any different from how Joseph and Andrew work a normal episode, but at least there’s more of a reason this time. IRL news hits us with Joseph finishing Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Andrew quickly jumps into the forum topic and front page comments. Industry news hits us with an explanation for why we hear noise in a vacuum like space, and the announcement of a new season of the Ace Attorney anime. And finally are the reviews, where Andrew plays basketball and Joseph neuters a cat.
We’re finally back to doing live shows folks! So If you’ve ever wanted to participate in the production of Anime Pulse, now is the time to sign up to be a Patreon! That said, the first live show in years goes off without a hitch. Joseph fills us in on his reason for taking off from work for the first time in 10 months, and Andrew says “fuck life” and talks about show comments and forum replies. Then they cover some interesting news about a Virtual Youtuber becoming an Japanese Ambassador, and the fallout of the Author behind Rurouni Kenshin’s child porn arrest. And finally are the reviews with Joseph sweeping up what is left of Rumiko Takahashi, and Andrew warns you to not get too attached to anyone in a zodiac war.
Let the alcohol flow through you! Let it consume your speech, and rid you of your coherent thoughts. That’s right, buzzed Joseph is back with a drinking Andrew this week. First up Joseph talks about Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Andrew quickly blasts through some opinions on anime he’s not going to preview. Industry news sees Joseph talk about an email from a listener, and Andrew mentions how PSG fans used a really expensive banner of Goku. Then comes a joint review of a very violent man and a very dumb girl.
Ho boy, you feel that? That’s a good buzz! Holy crap! That Gran Gala is some good stuff! Oh, but you didn’t to hear a drunk man rant, so here’s the highlights: We got Joseph talking about how bad Mass Effect Andromeda is, and Andrew rushing past his IRL news to go straight into AP community stuff. After wards Joseph covers news about how Harvey Weinstein was “defeated” by Studio Ghibli, and Andrew brings up the fact a very old hotel that inspired Hanario will be closing it’s doors. And then comes the finale, a hybrid show! Andrew has three previews ranging from cute cardcaptors to fruity yuri, and Joseph reviews his favorite anime of 2017.
Joseph and Andrew are back with their second ever joint review, this one with the question of “what if the world was a clock?” in mind. Before we get to that though, Joseph bought a handful of new video games and Andrew saw the new Marvel movie about a black cat. Industry news also comes ahead of the joint review, with topics like a mangaka who think piracy isn’t totally to blame for the poor sales of manga and Goku has a new power level.
This week Anime Pulse is all about being serious, all the anime they preview this week is serious and not joking at all. That said, IRL news sees Joseph talking about work and taxes, and Andrew mentions Fire Emblem Heroes in passing before jumping into the front page and forum comments. Then in industry news we cover topics about a cafe revolving around boobies being separated by a strap, and a thought provoking bit about fan translators being arrested. Finally previews comes along with Andrew’s serious previews of a serious anime and seriously not serious anime, and Joseph’s not-sure-if-want reaction to more deadly sins.
