This week was a long one. Whoever keeps messing with the time streams needs to at least have the courtesy to help us skip past the bullshit keeps hitting the center of the week. If they have time, they might also want to kill a few dictators in the past. Continuity might now allow it but even time travellers need a hobby. Continue reading Manga Pulse 354: She’s a Slut
Do you like panels? We sure do. Our favorite is an unstained pine with a light varnish, mounted with finishing nails against studs. Sometimes we like to gather panels from conventions for a more eclectic look. You might deal with some screaming as you drive some of the hosts to the wall. That’s why this episode is brought to you by FratDrops chloroform. FratDrops, when you absolutely need to score. Continue reading Manga Pulse 353: Golden Cath
So we haven’t heard any threats, veiled or otherwise, regarding the site’s visual facelift. If anyone was going to send us a murder-gram, we figure it would have happened already. Having not, we assume that everyone is pleased and glad to see. Also, we want to remind folks that the forums are alive and ready for action. We have pruned down the maze into something more straight forward regarding the shows. Continue reading Manga Pulse 352: Dino Ming
This week we did the show just before our local Comic-Con. Which was impressive as we’re pretty lazy and tend to slack on shows around convention times. The only thing we figure is someone left us a brick of cocaine which we dropped into our tea. Nothing quite like powdered motivation to ensure we get things done.
Tim reviews, apparently, a sequel to something we’ve already reviewed, Freezing Zero. Way back when we were still in the one hundreds(Tim believed it was in the 120’s though it was 177) one of us did the manga Freezing. This is the spin off which features, presumably, the same main character. Tim describes it as Evangelion, swapping out Shinji for a Tits McGee and Angels for Novas. While it attempts to spice things up with exposed nipples, it’s far too boring to be interesting. It gets Burn It for being an obnoxious clone.
Weltall then talks about Musunde Hiraite(by Minase Mayu). We specified the author as just image searching the name pulls up pictures that have nothing to do with the manga Weltall reviewed. It’s a bit confusing as it doesn’t follow the format we’re quite used to. The first chapter revolves around one person desperately trying to confess to a girl. Then a character from that chapter gets a promotion to protagonist for the second chapter. The unique storytelling device was interesting by not buttressed by enough story to earn more than a Borders.
We have at least one idea which could make a profit in the near future. Shrapnel helmets to sell overseas. They’ll be made in America and sold to countries where there is a risk of bombs being dropped from Trump Force One because the president can’t tell the difference between China and Mexico as they all speak foreign. Continue reading Manga Pulse 350: Princess Vs Princess
This week we managed a whole show where we didn’t talk about politics once. Yes, not even in passing. Instead we talked about movies quite a bit as we are wont to do even when the theme is manga. Because that’s just kind of what we do around here. Continue reading Manga Pulse 349: Foreign Words
Are you fans of digression and roundabout discussions? Because we are in full form this episode. Weltall sounds like a geriatric reporter padding their social security with opinon pieces on CNN by saying “millenials”. Tim keeps trying to steer it back to the show’s center to no avail. Continue reading Manga Pulse 348: Get Old
We often approach these shows terrified that we’ll have nothing to talk about. Especially when the manga we’re discussing seems incredibly straightforward. Without a jam packed mythos, power levels and ranks to make fun of, a manga can appear rather anemic. Lucky for us, there’s always digression and it’s in full force within this episode. Continue reading Manga Pulse 347: Shit Can
Did you know that we thrive on requests and suggestions? It’s true. Our last two Popcorn Pulses were entirely inspired by feedback from listeners who like to inflict things on us. That goes for manga as well as movies, as evidenced by Tim’s review this week. What we’re saying is, we take your suggestions when you email them and do our best to get to them as quickly as possible. So feel free to email us with movies or manga you’d like us to analyze. Continue reading Manga Pulse 346: Fairy Jitsu
This episode should really be titled, digression and you. In the best tradition of our show, we begin the first review and wander all over the map in an attempt to not talk about the comics at hand. Which is still rather surprising, considering we don’t generally hate manga. We must simply have the attention span of a goldfish pounding lines all night.
