And finally we got reviews, with Joseph fueling his drunk wife’s bad habit and Andrew petting some pussy. Yes, I mean catgirls.
Happy Saint Patrick’s day everyone! And you know what that means? Drinking of course! Not that it’s any different from how Joseph and Andrew work a normal episode, but at least there’s more of a reason this time. IRL news hits us with Joseph finishing Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Andrew quickly jumps into the forum topic and front page comments. Industry news hits us with an explanation for why we hear noise in a vacuum like space, and the announcement of a new season of the Ace Attorney anime. And finally are the reviews, where Andrew plays basketball and Joseph neuters a cat.
We’re finally back to doing live shows folks! So If you’ve ever wanted to participate in the production of Anime Pulse, now is the time to sign up to be a Patreon!

And finally are the reviews with Joseph sweeping up what is left of Rumiko Takahashi, and Andrew warns you to not get too attached to anyone in a zodiac war.
Let the alcohol flow through you! Let it consume your speech, and rid you of your coherent thoughts. That’s right, buzzed Joseph is back with a drinking Andrew this week. First up Joseph talks about Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Andrew quickly blasts through some opinions on anime he’s not going to preview. Industry news sees Joseph talk about an email from a listener, and Andrew mentions how PSG fans used a really expensive banner of Goku. Then comes a joint review of a very violent man and a very dumb girl.
Ho boy, you feel that? That’s a good buzz! Holy crap! That Gran Gala is some good stuff! Oh, but you didn’t to hear a drunk man rant, so here’s the highlights: We got Joseph talking about how bad Mass Effect Andromeda is, and Andrew rushing past his IRL news to go straight into AP community stuff. After wards Joseph covers news about how Harvey Weinstein was “defeated” by Studio Ghibli, and Andrew brings up the fact a very old hotel that inspired Hanario will be closing it’s doors. And then comes the finale, a hybrid show! Andrew has three previews ranging from cute cardcaptors to fruity yuri, and Joseph reviews his favorite anime of 2017.
Joseph and Andrew are back with their second ever joint review, this one with the question of “what if the world was a clock?” in mind. Before we get to that though, Joseph bought a handful of new video games and Andrew saw the new Marvel movie about a black cat. Industry news also comes ahead of the joint review, with topics like a mangaka who think piracy isn’t totally to blame for the poor sales of manga and Goku has a new power level.
This week Anime Pulse is all about being serious, all the anime they preview this week is serious and not joking at all. That said, IRL news sees Joseph talking about work and taxes, and Andrew mentions Fire Emblem Heroes in passing before jumping into the front page and forum comments. Then in industry news we cover topics about a cafe revolving around boobies being separated by a strap, and a thought provoking bit about fan translators being arrested. Finally previews comes along with Andrew’s serious previews of a serious anime and seriously not serious anime, and Joseph’s not-sure-if-want reaction to more deadly sins.
Work is work, that’s the word on the street. IRL news is started off almost straight off the bat, with Joseph talking about snow and Andrew talks about the new DBZ fighting game. In industry news Joseph covers a new app that gives you Food Wars recipes, and Andrew tells the sad tale of what happens to unsold manga. Finally come the previews, with Andrew’s look at uniquely drawn horror and a RomCom Joseph was interested in, and Joseph’s preview of sexual innuendos in a mech.
Our second week of previews, this time featuring more alcohol! Slurry Joseph aside, IRL news features more Fire Emblem Heroes, Overwatch, and a bit about a broken dryer. Then in industry news we learn that Dragon Ball Super is coming to an end, and that now is a good time to be in Tokyo if you want to get into the anime industry. At last the previews come around. Andrew brings us a story of young girl falling for a much older guy and hot boys doing attractive boy things, Joseph meanwhile has a female honey badger killing things and the second season of an anime about Japanese snacks.
It’s that time of year again, as Anime Pulse ditches the reviews and talks about the new anime of the season. Before that though Andrew and Joseph talk about their weeks, with more news on Fire Emblem Heroes and the other main jobs that both the hosts work on outside of AP. In industry news, Andrew has a depressing speech from Goku’s Japanese VA and Joseph invites the creative listeners to submit their “other word” manga ideas to be possibly picked up by a publisher. Finally the previews happen and while they are a bit more speedy, there is a total of five previews to start off. Andrew theming his around Moe Blob, and Joseph around being stuck in a video game world.
