Manga Pulse 413: Late Darling

We have a pair of manga this week with some requests.

Tim has a request for Darling In The Franxx. Most of his exposure of this series came from the meme’d scene where Hiro and Zero Two announce their love for each other. They’re both mech pilots without partners. Hiro can seem to pair with anyone and Zero Two keeps killing hers. So she grabs him and forces him to work with her in the mech which works and they fight a monster. It gets a crackers for being fun while being light on story.

Weltall has Late Winter. It’s the furture and a brand new ice age has show up ready to wreck humanity. Instead of getting back megafauna of yore, we get monsters that show up. Oh, and like an apocalyptic story aren’t the real monsters the humans we met along the way? It gets Borders for great pacing but a dull premise that has yet to win us over.

Manga pulse 410: Demi Devil

Can manga be anime or is anime manga? Is corn grass? Take some egg crates and stable some wild flowers to it. Now you’ve turned your garbage into something no one wants and wasted precious ?resources. All to keep yourself or maybe a child busy for a few seconds. Why not just light money on fire and watch it burn?

Manga PUlse 409: Perfect Saga

The local con season has come and gone and that means it’s time for more manga selected from a grab bag for Tim. This time the manga roulette has brought Tim to The Saga of Tanya the Evil. It’s an isekai where the protagonist is a salary man on earth who enjoys firing people. One of his firees takes this badly and shoves him in front of a subway train. In the afterlife, he meets various gods who want people to believe in them so they send him into a world of magic to be reborn as a girl soldier. The characters is lazy and obnoxious and fun to watch. It gets a Crackers.

Weltall then does Perfect School. Two twins, a boy and girl, are just switching schools. We don’t know why this has happened but we start to get hints. She begins by identifying a girl in class who appears to be ripe for psychological manipulation. She convinces the other girl to change her hair and this begins the protagonist weaving wicked strings throughout the school. It’s not very engaging or up our alley though the premise pushes it up to Borders.

Manga Pulse 408: Zelda Again…

We’re back with more requests and we’ve been given some more video game adaptations in a series we’ve already done a number of. Tim has Zelda – The Minish Cap and Phantom Hourglass. Having actually played the Minish Cap, Time has a bit of insight into the game story. It’s faithful and does well by skipping over the tedium that wouldn’t translate into a manga. The same volume covers the events of the Phantom Hourglass. It’s fun and lighthearted enough to enjoy with or without having played either game earning it a Crackers

Manga Pulse 407: Plunder Kai

It’s year seven hundred forty nine of the Banshou Era. The third age of enlightenment following the Toki wars. This is the kind of thing Tim complains about in the intro to his manga. Where the author tells us what year it is like we’ve been reading their notes and know what to make of that.

Manga Pulse 406: Zero Patrolman

Welcome back to our artisanal show. We make our podcast with a couple of simple ingredients. A couple of manga, some whiskey, and lots of time. No artificial cash influxes provided by oversized media conglomerates intent out forcing out as much flavorless paste for as little as possible.

Manga Pulse 405: Scarlet Monster

Today we have requests. The kind where people so much want to see us in pain they physically package up some manga and ship it across the wider states to our PO box. This means that we have no choice but to tackle this as soon as possible unlike the requests where we’re merely sent the title, though we still accept those as well.
