If there’s one thing we know, it’s the pursuit of happiness. Which is just code for buying all the crap you see on late night advertisements. We’ve been pursuing happiness for quite some time. From the Ronco rotisserie, the Ginsu knives which were replaces by Chef Tony’s Miracle blade we’ve finally found the product which will actually complete your life. No, not Flex Tape. Stop suggesting that Darryl. It’s manga! Continue reading Manga Pulse 379: Booze Adam
Thank you for choosing Manga Pulse podcast for your reviews. We know you have many choices in podcasts and are glad we made your list. Once the show has begun, please do not move around until the hosts have turned off the seat belt sign. In a moment, you may peruse your kitchen and choose from some lovely duty-free snacks you’d have purchased prior to the show. Continue reading Manga Pulse 378: Shoujo Onna
There’s something quietly amusing about us doing a sports themed manga. Mostly because neither Tim or Weltall are involved in any sports. They also don’t watch or follow any particular teams. Yet they’ve reviewed a manga for most major and a lot of lesser watched sports. From football to foreign football, tennis, shot put, boxing and who knows what else. Continue reading Manga Pulse 377: Breaking Wind
Come one come all to the greatest show of all time. At least until we do the next show which will be even better than the last. Look, we’re just trying a new positive thinking exercise to bolster our self confidence. We keep telling the therapist it’s not working but they don’t really care. Really we just want some of those delicious ADD medications so we can focus on our porn searches. Continue reading Manga Pulse 376: Shim Route
There’s a certain point where we just can’t recall if we’ve done a manga. This is, in no small part, hampered by the fact that so many of them have beats and plot points that are so interchangeable that Henry Ford would be proud. So sometimes we end up doing double takes, have to triple check and do quintuple searches of the site to be sure we haven’t done something before. Continue reading Manga Pulse 375: Yuusha Ends
This is an episode with numbers in it. It’s at least in the triple digits, we’re sure of it. Just give us a few seconds to look at the previous recordings and then the episode descriptions we have written and we’ll figure it out. Then, when we find out we’re wrong, we’ll panic and hastily correct ourselves with a sloppy edit. Continue reading Manga Pulse 374: Baka-san
It’s finally come to pass that we’ll be getting back to doing recommendations for manga very soon. Likely by the next show as it were. We’ve finally caught up on the emails and sorted through the backlog that we let pile up like idiots. Oh, and Tim mentions he’s been combing through videos about recording and voice over, particularly Booth Junkie’s channel on Youtube for those interested in such things.
Tim starts us off by talking about The Wrong Way to Use Healing Magic. Three students from our world are summoned to a magical kingdom to help fight off the newly risen demon king. No, stifle that yawn right now. While the main character isn’t eager to be there, it’s discovered he has a talent for healing magic which gets him press ganged into the recovery corps. It has genuine humor, character growth, and an interesting premise that gets it up to Read It Now.
Weltall takes us into Demon Spirit Seed Manual. Some guy from our world gets transported into a magical world full of magical magicness. He assumes he’s the main character in a manga and that he must have talent of some sort. Hearing his hubris, the author gives him a sliver of green gardening magic. We’re spared seven hundred volumes of weeding by him hatching a Demon Spirit Seed which sends him on a quest to collect them all and getting a Read It Now
Can you imagine if there was a Rick and Morty manga? The combined smugness of the weebs and R&M fans would be enough to destroy the world as we know it. Crushing everything into a ball or self righteous, self referential memes that exist only to masturbate the knowing. Continue reading Manga Pulse 372: Perfect Sherlock
Uh yes, I’d like to order a large pizza half pesto and half chicken and avocado. What do you mean you only serve Tex-Mex? And that my order sounds stupid? Well I’m just going to back my car out of the wall I broke and go to a quality establishment. Good day to you. Continue reading Manga Pulse 371: Helcker Selcker
Clippety cloppity, get your dick beaters off my property. That’s going to be our custom car alarm if we ever manage to make such a thing. Or maybe we can just run a crowdfunding campaign for it, raise a bunch of money and the stop updating two years after it closes and just hope no one finds out where we live.
