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.
To all our American listeners, happy Memorial Day! To all of our non-American listeners, happy menstrual hygiene day! This week Joseph talks about his experiences during the Overwatch Anniversary event, and Andrew teases Joseph with the fact he was able to get ahold of a Wedding Tharja from Fire Emblem Heroes. Industry news features news about Steam’s downfall, and the New Game! Mangaka choosing not to write back to fans anymore. And in this hybrid show Andrew solves a mystery with Yokai, and Joseph brings out a Honey Badger to fight the world.
Look out folks, this episode of Anime Pulse features comments by innocuousblond so you know what that means; beautiful voice acting by Southern Belle Joseph. Joseph is also back on the Overwatch wagon, and he is loving the newer OP character Brigitte. Andrew meanwhile keeps things community oriented with the show comments and forum replies, this week’s question about what anime you’d want to see made into a video game. Industry news comes in with the female responses to Otakus on the subject of love, and the announcement of a new Dragon Ball anime. Finally comes a mix of reviews and previews, as Andrew enters the boxing ring with an immortal gold prospector and Joseph builds a harem out of slave girls and lolis.
Get ready for a fully delicious show, because this one will leave you stuffed. Joseph immediately drops some major IRL about his work life and his thoughts on the latest Darling in the Franxx, Andrew then quickly expounds upon his gaming adventure with a community member as well as the community responses to his weekly discussion thread. Industry news sees Nintendo putting out a new mini console, as well as what real Otakus think about love and romance. And finally this week is the last reviews show, with Andrew covering two magical “girl” series and Joseph continuing his favorite cooking show.
This week on Anime Pulse, Joseph digs in with his IRL news talking about a new coworker, his fascination with arm cannons, and the weather. Andrew per his own confession, has nothing going on in his own life, so he goes straight into community stuff. Afterwards Joseph gives a big “eh” to a ranking of the geekiest states in America, and Andrew has some follow up news to an old piece about a canceled anime. Finally comes the previews, where Joseph talks about Fire Emblem Heroes: The Anime, Andrew rides a dragon wearing parts of a Jet, and the two of them swoon over an office romance.
Anime Pulse brings you another episode, this one is all loli all the time. We got lolis calling us Onii-chan, we got lolis shooting guns, and we got lolis in the news. First things first though is the IRL news, with Joseph breaking down his 401K and Andrew jumping straight into community stuff. Afterwards the industry news sees topics like a singing contest to start your career, and a theme park being built featuring studio Ghibli anime. And finally in previews Joseph has a bunch of little sisters quickly calling him Onii-chan, Andrew critiques the tactics used in an online gun game, and both the hosts co-preview a bipolar otaku and a girl who takes all sorts of abuse.
A slightly technical problems show of Anime Pulse this week, with Andrew cutting in and out leaving Joseph to twiddle his thumbs. But all the internet shutting down wouldn’t stop these two, as Joseph talks about the passing of his grandfather and Andrew jumps into community stuff. Only one piece of Industry News this week, and it’s all about a recent episode of Darling in the Frankxx pissing off fans. Finally the previews are here, with Joseph showing his disappointment towards the new DxD and his love for the new Lupin. Andrew on the other hand is ok with a new Vampire anime, but has no time for hot guys dressing up like Butlers.
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.
