Ho ho ho, just in time for Christmas it’s an episode of Anime Pulse! This week Joseph talks about spending money on his digital waifu, and Andrew is back in Scotland visiting family. Then in industry news we got topics like the most appealing anime characters of 2017, and William Shatner coming out as a fan of the anime. Finally are reviews with Andrew regaling us with a lyrical review of stinky fish, and Joseph brushing over a mediocre anime about an annoying tsundere and a useless princess.
After a little more political talk about Net Neutrality, the guys get into things with IRL news about Andrew falling down the ranked Street Fighter ladder and Joseph totally ready for his upcoming vacation. Industry News brings to the table a piece on the Kanji of the Year, as well as the death of another big name in recent anime. And ending things is a review from Andrew of ballroom dancing, and the tears that Joseph shed watching a board game.
We kicks things off this episode with talk about Net Neutrality, a regulation and law that will be ending on December 14th if the idiot FCC chairman has his way. Afterwards we got IRL news, with Andrew’s career as a Street Fighter returning and Joseph dreading the coming of winter in NYS. Then in the reviews Andrew bets it safe on his second major gambling anime, and Joseph stares lustfully at a masochistic crusader.
This week on Anime Pulse Joseph has a new computer and Andrew has a cold, but a simple cold can’t stop Joseph’s co-host from being on thew show. Industry news brings us a follow up to the article on the guy discovering his friend is a Trap, as well as a piece on why you should never trust your girlfriend around your anime collection. And in the world of reviews, Joseph talks about a semi-hentai and Andrew is annoyed with a wimpy wet noodle of an excuse for a main male protagonist.
Gobble gobble, it’s another episode of Anime Pulse. Coming off of Thanksgiving, which isn’t something you should really be thankful for, Joseph brings us news about a new digital card game he is thoroughly enjoying. Andrew on the other hand, who has no such holiday, surprises Joseph with his lack of experience with Cowboy Bebop and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Industry news features a fun bit about a Trap being discovered by his friend, as well as some rather terrible news about the author behind Rurouni Kenshin. As for the reviews, Andrew berates a man’s plot to get revenge on a former love interest and Joseph sighs at the sequel to a Rumiko Takahashi work.
You know what sucks? This new Skype. God it sucks so much.

In industry news we got killer cats and a sad piece on the passing of one of the great voice actresses of the century, oh, and people are upset that Pikachu was talking in the new movie. Reviews round things out as Joseph relives his days in high school, and Andrew goes into a forest to find white haired men wearing masks.
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.
