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’.
We’re running a week behind now, so if you hear news that is a week old, well, hopefully we’ll eventually be doing live shows where you can listen to us on the day of. Until then, sit back and relax as we talk about giant anime breasts, Overwatch, Fire Emblem Heroes, and Kingsmen: The Golden Circle. We also review a couple anime, one about cute girls doing cute things while playing ping pong and the other about a cute boy and his uncle.
You’d think with only two news articles that the show could be a tad bit less lengthy, but no, our host and co-host find ways of making even the smallest of topics into a debate. Well once they are done talking about savoring steak and getting raises, Andrew brings up how the director of the live action Fullmetal Alchemist felt it was Asian washed and Joseph has a poll on the best gory anime to see. After all is said and done, we get a review of evil space parasites and a yellow octopus who can travel at mach speed.
Who plays too much Overwatch? Joseph plays too much Overwatch. Who is addicted to Street Fighter? Andrew is addicted to Street Fighter. Man, you’d think with all this video game talk we were VG Pulse. (Ho ho) Outside news of our adventures in gaming, we got topics like the Live Action Death Note director deleting his Twitter account, and a follow up to sneaking a peek at the “official” Asuna nipple from SAO. Bringing up the rear is a review from Joseph of the perfect High School student, and a review from Andrew of an imperfect angel.
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.
