Episode 613: Summer 2019 Previews #2

It’s a somber week here on Anime Pulse, as we discuss the passing of 34 KyoAni staff after a senseless arsonist attack on their Studio 1. Our well wishes go out to the family and friends of these staff, and we hope those injured either physically or emotionally recover soon. The show’s format remains unchanged however, and so IRL news starts us off with Joseph paying for some upgrades to his recording equipment and Andrew would like to know what anime produced by KyoAni are the best. Afterwards we go in depth on the attack on Kyoto Animation, our only news article this show. And lastly are previews, with Joseph adopting a devil daughter while he hunts monsters and Andrew hits the gym after becoming stranded on an island.

Episode 612: Summer 2019 Previews #1

Last week Anime Pulse dug in deep with the Vic Mignogna news, but this week they have nothing to update us with. So if you’re here for that, you’ll be sorely disappointed. Otherwise, stick around for IRL news as Joseph talks about being a cool uncle and Andrew wants to know who your favorite foreigners in anime are. Afterwards the two get into industry news with topics like Toei animation staff being accused of sexual harassment, anime being delayed due to the author not liking the quality, and we’ve got more Akira coming in the near future. And then we leave off with the first previews show of the summer season, with Joseph failing to be a magical demon lord and Andrew turns to stone while putting out fires.

Afterwards industry news is here with the KickVic update from Andrew, and Joseph mentions that a VR Youtuber has made records by going to space. (sort of) And then the reviews bring us Joseph trying desperately to avoid Chris Hansen, and Andrew making magical girls cry blood.

Episode 609: Houseki no Live

It’s anti-father’s day here at Anime Pulse, where the guys talk all about those horrible dads in anime. In fact, you might say it’s going to be a mostly negative show this week, as Andrew and Joseph both have rather depressing news to share during the industry news section. IRL news is a bit on the lighter side though as Joseph challenges his supervisor to a Shokugeki and Andrew celebrates a birthday, and the same can be said for the reviews, as Joseph attempts to save the planet by dating girls and Andrew is like a bull in a china shop where all the china are girls made out of crystals and the bull is wizards from the moon.

Wait a second, is it me or did it get kind of dark in here? Because I’m positive Joseph just previewed a softcore porn. That’s right, we got basically hentai, police losing their shit over nothing, and your least favorite genres of anime. IRL news follows along as Joseph is once again on his own, and Andrew updates us on the KickVic situation. Industry news hits us with Cup Noodle animated shorts, and Crunchyroll fumbling their job in an amusing way.
