Another week, another episode of Anime Pulse. On this show Joseph has gone full Shokugeki on some chicken breast, and Andrew went skiing into some big burley men. Industry news sees topics like anime previews on YouTube being too risqué, and a top politician in Japan dressing up like Kirito. This is also our fourth and final week of full-on previews with Joseph talking about a gamer girl, and Andrew lining up and knocking down several anime about cute girls doing funny things.
This week on Anime Pulse Joseph and Andrew are taking a second stab at recording, because Joseph forgot to charge his headphones. After not making a big deal of losing 10 minutes of recording, the two jump into IRL news where Joseph talks about getting lucky in Fire Emblem Heroes and Andrew asks us what anime character we’d like to meet IRL. Industry news brings us topics like a manga about trolling being canned and an anime film about Made in the Abyss being announced. And finally the previews roll in with Joseph talking about demon lords, and Andrew glosses over Idols and Music.
As the second episode of Summer 2018 previews, Joseph and Andrew have plenty more anime to introduce. Before they get to that though, IRL news comes in with Joseph getting a raise and Andrew talking about your favorite killers in anime. Afterwards there’s the industry news with topics like proposing with Pokemon, a new Evangelion movie, and watching movies in a bathtub. And then the previews hit us with more disappointment for Joseph, and Andrew heading to the beach to play extreme beach volleyball.
This week on Anime Pulse, Joseph regales us with his loss of interest in Fire Emblem Heroes and Andrew quickly moves into the forum topic of favorite AMVs; Joseph shares his and so does Andrew. Afterwards the two get to news from the industry, with topics like a man who spent over $1000 on cardboard cutouts and old visual novels making their way to English fans after a successful kickstarter. Finally come the previews, as Joseph talks about gender reassignment and straight shota and Andrew brings up happy times in murder and psychological horror.
Someone help Joseph, because he has fallen prey to the pay-to-win game of Fate Grand Order. How will he ever pay for his car insurance if he keeps throwing money at digital waifus? Andrew on the other hand is melting in a heatwave currently turning England into an episode of Hells Kitchen, but that doesn’t stop him from covering the community and forum question. Then the industry news comes at you with a resolution to the Love Live! debacle, and an anime studio has finally done away with the traditional ways of earning money. And finally comes the last week of reviews before we hit the summer 2018 previews, with Joseph cringing at “Mamas” and Andrew is rolling his eyes at the cash grab version of SAO.
This week on Anime Pulse Joseph talks about how he saved the life of a turtle and is now on vacation, while Andrew mentions that he has moved to London and brings up the community forum thread about your favorite animal in anime. Then industry news comes about with topics like Stu Levy stirring ire with Anime Expo artists, and the director of Full Metal Alchemist hates on the current anime scene. And finally the hybrid show comes back with Joseph previewing an older anime about Mamas, and Andrew talks about boy who can travel back in time when he has unpleasant experiences.
We got technical problems galore this week, as Garageband has decided to rebel against Joseph and fights him to work correctly. After duking it out with his iMac, Joseph revels that he has been pulled into the Fate’s world with Fate: Grand Order. Andrew picks up by quickly going over a few anime he hadn’t previewed, and then jumps into community stuff. Afterwards the guys get to industry news, with topics like Dragon Ball Z being remastered and Otakus picking up the pieces in Osaka after an Earthquake. Reviews hit us hard as Joseph deals with hating an alien hater, and Andrew deals with bad animation in a Dragon Ball series.
Happy Father’s Day! This week Joseph has plenty of Fire Emblem Tharja and Overwatch to talk about, and Andrew celebrates the recruitment of the VG Pulse hosts to AP’s discord before going into the community section. Industry news sees topics like a bullet train colliding with a person, a proud moment for an otaku is shared with his waifu, and Kill la Kill announces a new video game. And finally are the reviews, as Joseph talks about an emotional board game and Andrew is at last done with previews and tackles an awkward romance.
This week Anime Pulse is brought to you by, Joseph drinking Koshu Plum Wine. We begin by listening to Joseph go on about his success with being placed on the waiting list for an apartment, as well as him slapping his knee about how “he knew it” with the latest Darling in the Franxx. Andrew brings up the upcoming Summer season of anime, and then he gets into the community section with this week’s forums topic. Industry news see topics like the salary of Japans top cosplayer, an animation studio going bankrupt, and a new K-On! manga featuring no one from the previous series. This is our last hybrid show of spring, just in time for summer too! We got Joseph reviewing a badass butler, and Andrew previews a girl from space and space battles in space.
This week on Anime Pulse Joseph talks about Fire Emblem Heroes, and seems to be suffering from the effects of a glass of riesling that hit him harder than he was expecting. Andrew is more entertaining anyways, but his IRL is as short as ever with the community segment taking over. The industry also saw fit to give Joseph nothing to talk about, though Andrew had news about Japanese manhole covers and mascots for subways in Japan. This is also the third hybrid show where Joseph reviews a snack anime without snacks, and Andrew previews a disturbing anime about slavery and a third season of FMP.
