We kicks things off this episode with talk about Net Neutrality, a regulation and law that will be ending on December 14th if the idiot FCC chairman has his way. Afterwards we got IRL news, with Andrew’s career as a Street Fighter returning and Joseph dreading the coming of winter in NYS. Then in the reviews Andrew bets it safe on his second major gambling anime, and Joseph stares lustfully at a masochistic crusader.
This week on Anime Pulse Joseph has a new computer and Andrew has a cold, but a simple cold can’t stop Joseph’s co-host from being on thew show. Industry news brings us a follow up to the article on the guy discovering his friend is a Trap, as well as a piece on why you should never trust your girlfriend around your anime collection. And in the world of reviews, Joseph talks about a semi-hentai and Andrew is annoyed with a wimpy wet noodle of an excuse for a main male protagonist.
Gobble gobble, it’s another episode of Anime Pulse. Coming off of Thanksgiving, which isn’t something you should really be thankful for, Joseph brings us news about a new digital card game he is thoroughly enjoying. Andrew on the other hand, who has no such holiday, surprises Joseph with his lack of experience with Cowboy Bebop and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Industry news features a fun bit about a Trap being discovered by his friend, as well as some rather terrible news about the author behind Rurouni Kenshin. As for the reviews, Andrew berates a man’s plot to get revenge on a former love interest and Joseph sighs at the sequel to a Rumiko Takahashi work.
You know what sucks? This new Skype. God it sucks so much. Joseph and Andrew talk about how bad it is and a bit about Microsoft in general, there’s also some discussion on harassment prevention classes. In industry news we got killer cats and a sad piece on the passing of one of the great voice actresses of the century, oh, and people are upset that Pikachu was talking in the new movie. Reviews round things out as Joseph relives his days in high school, and Andrew goes into a forest to find white haired men wearing masks.
Welcome to a new area for Anime Pulse, where gone are the music themes that lined up with the shows we cover; you can thank greedy corporate copyright types for that. Fair use my ass. Music aside, in this episode we’re back to reviews. Andrew talks about stripping the undead, and Joseph has some foodgasms. There’s also discussions of the site, forums, and news involving everyones favorite American president feeding fish, and a Japanese politician throwing video games and anime under the bus.
Welcome to the obvious edit show, where Joseph had to fix a minor mistake he made by announcing the wrong episode number. Can you spot the edit? I bet you can. Well amusingly bad alterations aside, Joseph also starts things with IRL news of his plans for December and Andrew’s news is more about the forums than anything. Industry news sees an article about a crossover between one of Joseph’s and one of Andrews’ favorite anime, and a bit about a Japanese school girl who was forced to dye her hair. And then at long last we reach the final run of previews for this Fall, where Andrew is talking about sandy whales and cute girls after the world ends and Joseph gushes over an anime about shōgi.
Well it’s still not an hour, but at least it’s not two. This week we got another episode of previews for the Fall 2017 season, with three shows up for display. But first Andrew reports from London where he attended his first big anime convention, and then Joseph tells us of his continuing good fortune at his job. Industry news see Joseph talk about what anime character would make a good prime minister of Japan, and Andrew brings the horror in with Sony acquiring the rights to Funimation. As for the previews, Andrew has people killing each other for a wish and more cute girls doing cute things, and Joseph talks about a man without a little sister.
Our longest show yet! Holy crap let’s not do this again. Anyways, we do a whole lot of ranting about Fire Emblem character pairings this episode. Oh, and we talk about some forum discussions that Andrew worked on. That’s right, the discussion questions are back! Sort of… we only have one guy responding to questions right now, but hey, it’s a start! In the news side of things we talk about the results of Japan and America’s first official mech battle, and a small story about one mans thoughts on an otaku couple during the newest Fate/stay movie. And lastly are the previews, of which we have four more. Joseph has a comedy about a budding relationship between a high school couple, as well as the newest season of foodgasms. Andrew on the other hand talk about marrying a big cow skull dude, and a very interesting story about the latest attempt at a new Bleach/Naruto.
We’re all falling down in this episode because it’s back to previews; looking at what the Fall 2017 season has for us. So far, nothing mind blowing. So let’s talk instead about how Joseph really feels about Aho-girl, how Andrew really feels about New Game!!, and let us not forget to mention Overwatch, Patreon, and baking Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins.
This week on anime pulse we talk about Fire Emblem Heroes, the voice of Erina Nakiri, food poisoning, and planning a visit to Scott Loves Anime. We also review a couple anime before we go into previews next week, with Andrew trying to get us to visit a town in Japan with ‘Sakura Quest’ and Joseph beating a useless male protagonist to death with a sack of rocks in ‘Seisen Cerberus’.
