Ho boy do we have a show for you this week ladies and gentlemen, as Joseph and Andrew get really talkative over a slew of subjects. Hope you don’t mind more than a couple off-topic discussion, as the spirit of Manga Pulse seems to really be with us today. Andrew leads us off this week though with his continuing love of golf, and Joseph has had one of the worst experiences in a movie theater yet. Industry news comes in with topics like the best imoutos, and Netflix trying their hand at making an original anime. (Spoilers; It’s pretty bad.) And for reviews Andrew goes all in on gambling for your life, and Joseph takes a trip to the ‘W’ dimension.
Joseph and Andrew are back with another episode of Anime Pulse, this week Joseph is taking a Z-Pak and Andrew explains his disappointing ending to a local convention. Industry news is small this week with just two topics, one about Pokemon companions and the other about a potential Fire Emblem anime hinted in weapon text. Reviews come in with a look at the “Forgettably Medieval Infinite Stratos” by Joseph, and the movie for Accel World by Andrew.
Wait one second, who is this deep voice imposter claiming to be Joseph!? Oh wait, it’s just Joseph recovering from a summer cold. Well if you weren’t fooled then congrats, not like Joseph tried to hide the fact it was him anyways or come up with a skit about being someone else and then forget about it before starting the show. Anyways, Joseph and Andrew are here again. Andrew talks about going without hot water and internet, and Joseph became a year older all while being sick. Industry news sees topics like training kids to be YouTubers, drawing manga on your phone, and a potential squeal to the live action Death Note. And lastly in reviews Andrew talks about a love triangle with music, and Joseph eats some Japanese snacks.
This week on Anime Pulse our condolences go out to TC’s family as they deal with his passing, and we invite anyone out there to comment on this weeks show with your own thoughts on the loss of a beloved host and co-host. But TC wouldn’t want the show to not go on because of him, not after everything he dedicated to taking Anime Pulse where it is today. As such, Anime Pulse dedicates this show to TC, and we hope that we can continue to bring you as many smiles, laughter, entertainment, and joy as he did.
Ho boy, we got a long one for you this week folks. A lengthy review of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. from Andrew taking the cake, with Joseph’s review of Heavy Object tailing along behind. First things first though, IRL news of Andrew catching more Pokemon and Joseph’s first really bad customer experience. However the largest share of this episode goes to Industry News, with topics covering the thoughts from the Death Note creators on the new Live Action adaptation and how the voice actress for a major female protagonist in Food Wars! won’t be in the third season.
This week on Anime Pulse things return to more of a normal, with a review of the second season of Durarara by Joseph and a review of Eromanga by Andrew. First up is IRL news about Andrew’s struggles to obtain better internet, and Joseph talks about spending Saturday with his mother. Both hosts address comments on the previous show as well as an email, and then jump into industry news of Japanese Deer and FUNimation being bought up.
This week’s episode of Anime Pulse is a bit of a hybrid, as Joseph tackles a review while Andrew continues on with previews. We got your typical tangents about movies, life, and baking. Then industry news has us discussing the ideal Japanese husband and that mini-game in DoA: Extreme Beach Volleyball about bumping butts, followed by a review of a Lolita Goddess who gets off on killing and a couple previews about fake magical girls and a strange centaur anime.
