Have you ever had one of those friends who tires to make everything anyone says into a sexual joke? Yeah, Red is that guy this episode. Though you can’t blame the guy entirely, he did go see the god awful “Sausage Party” this past week. At least Ryo takes it all in stride, but then again she has been writing poetry about her dreamy sensei.  This week your two hosts got news on One Punch Man and Love Hotels, and finish off with reviews of Log Horizon’s second season and Oshiete! Galko-chan. Let’s get it on!

It’s just that kind of episode folks, two Netflix level reviews and more news; at least the news is interesting. First though Red and Ryo fill us in on what’s been going on with them, with Ryo going back to school and Red continuing his crusade against his previous employer. The industry news has a pretty fun poll about hated Jump heroins, a bit about a hack mall sign displaying hentai, and the dark side of Pokemon. Oh, and there is a bit where Red and Ryo reminisce about old commercials.

In this episode, Red makes it very apparent that pissing him off is not what someone wants to do. But so long as you don’t pull your phone out during a movie, fire him for no reason, or take forever to deliver his mail you’ve nothing to fear from the tenth unit of red. Aside from Red’s angry rant we have news of leaked photos from Ghost in the Shell, reactions to Bleach ending, and a Spice and Wolf sequel. In terms of reviews we have Ryo loving Bungo Stray Dogs, and Red not loving Juuou Mujin no Fafnir.

And so it ends; the previews that is. This is the last week of them, as the next time we return it will be time to do a couple reviews until the fall season rolls in. Speaking of which, Anime Pulse will not have anything for the listeners until Ryo begins reporting from Otkakon. Look for the next major show near the second to final week of August, which will be right around the time for Red’s birthday! Woo! Anyways, previews! Four of them! Get to the listening!

Ho boy, what a show we have in store for you folks. As you might be able to tell from the title, this show was more or less the most technical-problem plagued one since Red took over the editing. Taking a day off from work he put his blood and sweat into fixing the show up as much as he could, and now here it is in all it’s dilapidated glory. Any who, it’s previews time and your hosts are here to deliver you some promising candidates for the summer season. Even if we’re only a month away from fall…

It’s a new episode of Anime Pulse, this week brought to you by your now dead hosts who have been slain by the previous hosts for making fun of their favorite things. But fear not, Red and Ryo both made a save state before taking a bankai sword to the gut and a few hypodermic needles to the brain. Before all that happened though, there was this show where Red and Ryo talked about bad girlfriends in anime, apologetic Ghibli producers, and plenty of off topic discussions in-between. Then they cap off the show with two reviews, one of the slice of life Aiura and the other the almost hentai Shinmai Mao no Testament. Continue reading Episode 482: Your Favorite Kind Of Thing

Look out behind you, because you might very well be the next target of the notorious Anime Pulse assassins; Red and Ryo. They first begin with a flashback to their respective pasts, tragic pasts filled with retirement parties and school work. Then they sneak in close and whisper in your ear with industry news, covering topics like who not to date in anime and how to properly enjoy a meal while wearing a paper bag. Finally they pull out their rubber knives and stick you like a roast pig, filling you with a sense of what it feels like to be yellow octopus or a scar covered pretty girl. What’s that? None of this made any sense? Well I guess you’ll just have to listen to the show and learn the truths behind my cryptic words.

Welcome dear listeners to another episode of Anime Pulse, this week Red and Ryo return to the standard format and bring us back into the reviews. IRL news sort of devolves into video game talk, with topics like Ryo’s fear of large bugs and the thunderstorm at Red’s place. Then it’s on to industry news, where we have a story on otaku scientists naming galaxies and vocaloids finally making it into school textbooks. And last but not least the reviews, as Ryo roasts I My Mi and Red intrigues Ryo with Chivalry of a Failed Knight.

This week we start the show on a rather dark note, Ryo is back to join Red but the reasons behind her absence are finally explained in detail. However the dark theme doesn’t end there, as the industry news and the previews are all on the dark side of things. But fear not loyal listeners, there is a light at the end of that tunnel and that light is called Otakon!
