There are some things in life which are just plain classy. A finger of whiskey, neat on a cold day. A silk tie done in a proper Windsor knot. The clean lines of an Aston Martin. We, however, do not have much truck with class. We could explain more but you’ll only understand once you’ve listened to this episode where we tackle sensitive subjects like a raging bull after a cape.
Late starts aren’t new to anyone in the world, we assume. This is especially true for everyone in the Delayed Puberty Awareness support chain on Tumblr. We began a bit late as recordings were in progress and Weltall’s managa was loading slower than a geriatric lumper. Tim began with a review of Othello in which an animated doormat wakes up and goes to school. She hangs out with a group of girls who hate her because doormat’s parents gave her the Japanese version of the devil’s dictionary. Luckily doormat’s split personality awakens and begins to get vengeance on her friends. Weltall then discusses Kangoku Gakuen. It’s about an all girls […]
Finally, a show that focuses on the manga. You’d almost think we’ve done one of these once in awhile or something. Through the magic of circumstance we both managed to do some slice of life mangas at the same time. Considering how dull they usually are, it’s nothing short of a miracle if we generated some entertainment from them. Tim talks about Saikyou Densetsu Kurosawa. It’s a slice of life about a socially awkward construction worker who wants desperately to be popular. He decides that he will find way, in his simple and methodical way, to win the hearts and minds of his coworkers. Being socially inept, he fails multiple […]
We often receive a number of suggestions which we ignore in our email. Solicitations to buy blue strawberry plants, pleasure our women longer or to find out the one weird food you should never eat end up in the trash. However, we almost always fulfill our manga shows with the suggestions of listeners. The chief reason being we are often lazy and get tired of hitting the random button.
It is time, once again, for an episode where we discuss the mangas. That’s right, we talk about the drawings done in panels which purport to be some sort of art. In our continuing quest to prove otherwise, Tim and Weltall perform admirably and full of vinegar.
We’re here once again to talk about the power of the dash. Some people prefer heat seeking missiles or the old fashioned machine guns but a quick burst of speed will always be our personal favorite. There’s nothing quite like punching it when someone attempts to come up from behind and leaving them in your wake.
The show that almost didn’t happen because of cars. Damn you machines and your need for repairs! Why can’t you just be like Transformers and fix yourself without our intervention! Get on that Google peoples and make it snappy. As with all requests, it sometimes takes a bit of search-fu to confirm that, no, we haven’t done that particular series. So Tim was left with no other choice than to review Sword Art Online. Which happens to be yet another series where people get sucked into an MMO. Which made Tim wonder if he hadn’t been visited by the head injury fairy recently. Because that’s the plot of at least […]
It’s that time again where the numbers in the episode line up in sequential order. Sure it’s descending but it’s still very satisfying. Like finding out that you’ve got no spare parts left over after assembling some flat packed furniture. Within this mighty episode, Tim reviews Gokukoku no Brynhildr. We’re treated to a hard working student, wracked with guilt over the death of his childhood friend. When a girl shows up as a transfer student, groan, looking exactly like his dead friend, he’s understandably freaked out. Watch a promising manga being the slow slide into mediocrity as it slips into Crackers. Weltall then reviews OKuSan. Wherein some mangaka decided to […]
There’s probably a point where some poor bastard mangaka was sitting at their desk and trying desperately to think up a story for a deadline. “Gee, if only something would fall from the sky and knock my ass out so I have an excuse my editor will accept.” At that point, a coconut was conveniently dropped by a passing pair of pigeons some nut had tied together with string and bean them. After the coma wore off they penned the story Suashi no Meteorite, which Tim reviews. In it, the main character comes home to find their house demolished by a wild meteor. Not only has his house been destroyed […]
Sometimes life is just full of surprises. Like a train that manifests and runs you off the road when you start singing Ironic by Alanis Morisette. Other times it can be fairly predictable. Like when Tim digs into his list of requests to find a manga to review.
