I hope you’ve brought your medical facial masks, because Red and Ryo are both your patients for this weeks show. That’s right, your hosts are not feeling quite up-to-par as both of them are suffering from one type of illness or another; the show much go on though! As such, IRL news is full of how sick both Red and Ryo are; Ryo including the only bit of happy news which covered a drawing of hers getting some press. Afterwards Red talks about how Kirino from Oreimo is representing voters in Japan, and Ryo lists off the most popular cat names in Japan. And last but not least are reviews where Red covers a bad vampire anime, and Ryo attempts to keep herself entertained with a short anime about distraction.

At long last the final episode of Winter 2016 previews has arrived, after this Anime Pulse will return to it’s regularly scheduled program of reviews. Starting things off this week is “less drunk” Red, who is sober enough to actually not make sexually references every ten seconds as he does his IRL news. Meanwhile Ryo is doing much better, in that she has not had a case of the cracking-head-open-against-desks this week. After IRL news it’s onto the Industry News, with Red’s article about love confessions and Ryo’s about another Hatsune Miku figurine. After all is said and done we come to the final previews, and a brand new outro; let me know what you think! This could be something that changes every week for now on, or it could be something new to replace the old that signifies the ending.

With the weekly updates out of the way next up is industry news, where Red talks about monster girl hentai and Ryo is all about those damn birds. And finally a new season hath come and with it brings new shows, so Red and Ryo dig into the Winter 2016 season.

So here’s a test. Who reads this? Who still listens? Let me know in comments section for this episode. This is going to be a pretty important test, and depending on its outcome Red is going to either keep rolling with the show or is going to hit the switch and put this podcast to bed. So if you still want this show to be a thing you’d better speak up, otherwise Anime Pulse will come to an end. That said, here’s the rundown for this episode: Red and Ryo try a new introduction with Red partially messing it up, and then they go straight into IRL news. After which Red reads the list of the most villains characters in anime and Ryo talks about an expensive Lum statue, or is it a figurine? Who really cares, it’s a giant depiction of Lum that’s probably already sold out. And to cap things off Red reviews the strong-female-warrior anime of Madan no Ou to Vanadis, and Ryo reviews the monster-girl filled world of Monster Musume.

Red’s enjoying his new job, Ryo is suffering from terrible anime, and this is another episode of Anime Pulse. This week’s episode includes topics like the classification of the otaku and what not to do at a cabaret, and of course the reviews where Red has the failing Amagi Brilliant Park and Ryo has crossdressing Himegoto. Aside from a super long portion of this week’s show going to Red reading off the final portions of Oreimo to Ryo while she writhes in pain, everything went well for a change.
