Did you like that joke episode? I hope not, because it sucked to edit. Back to the way things should be, we start off with IRL news about Joseph sneaking about in Dishonored 2 and Andrew getting around to playing Doki Doki Literature Club. The community section runs a bit long, but that’s only because there’s plenty to talk about when it comes to popular YouTubers. Industry news is rather depressing, but that’s what you get when the co-founder of Ghibli passes away and Japan’s second favorite pastime is showing sings of dying off. At least the reviews break away from the bad news, with Joseph dating a perverted girlfriend and Andrew thumbing his nose at a collection of horror stories.
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
Dan. Dan? Dan! If you were unfortunate enough to have grown up in the nineties you probably heard a shrill harpy cry that out to in deafening peals to cast and audience alike. It was his stalwart resistance to the sonic assault that earned John, then without surname, his moniker of Goodman. Once he sealed the demon back in the oubliette, he was free to pursue an acting career. Of which we have two particular gems. Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 81: John Goodman
Don’t you just love it when you get through almost all of something, your on the downward and out, and suddenly the thing you were working on just decides to crash? Yeah, Joseph hates that too. Technical difficulties aside, welcome to a special April Fools edition of Anime Pulse. We got IRL news about Joseph’s bad luck in Fire Emblem Heroes, and Andrew’s community segment. There’s also Industry news with topics like a bad break up in Japan, and an anime being canceled before its final two episodes were released. And in reviews Joseph has the third season of foodgasms, and Andrew flips gravity around a few times.
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
Let’s imagine you’ve made a multi million dollar film sponsored by a major car manufacture with a goofy family friendly premise and creature? You’ve got some solid character actors, a serviceable plot and no plans to make it into a franchise like so many other studios are doing these days? Do you release it early in the spring and hope to beat the tent pole events for a little extra cash? Or do you sit on it for a year and then release it with as much marketing as a wet fart in a sewer? Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 80: Monster Trucks
Ever wonder what it’s like to be the only girl in a room full of guys? Try asking Queen Inoue, she’ll know that answer. After learning that tid bit of information, come back for IRL news about lackluster Fire Emblem draws and the community section. Then industry news sees Joseph talk about virtual YouTubers, and Andrew shakes his head at the backwards thinking of Toei Animation. And finally we got reviews, with Joseph fueling his drunk wife’s bad habit and Andrew petting some pussy. Yes, I mean catgirls.
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
