Episode 770: Bloom into Aharen-san

This week on Anime Pulse we got a Japanese mayor who moonlights as the Punisher, a RomCom that doesn’t cause massive cases of cringe, and anime that inspired us to become more than we were. Up first Joseph has been putting up with cats, organizing shelves, and running a monster girl brothel. Meanwhile Andrew hasn’t been doing much, so we skip right into the community stuff to talk about biscuit hammer and what anime has pushed us to pursue. And finally in the reviews Joseph attempts to use smoke signals to talk to a very short and cute classmate, and Andrew is confessed to by a girl after failing to properly respond to a confession by a guy.

Manga Pulse 476: Embers of Lust

We don’t have a lot of thoughts in the head today. It’s probably all those fumes from trying to strike oil out in the field so we don’t have to work anymore. That or it was getting beer bottles thrown at our head from digging in some random field looking for oil. Turns out property owners don’t care for trespassers. At least we’ll always have out manga.

Popcorn Pulse 180: Towering China

Was the seventies a disaster? We like to think so. Carter was in office. Oil Embargos were happening. Nuclear power plants were being protested. Disco was on the rise. Hollywood must have assumed it was the end times and found a love of the disaster film. So we grabbed a few for the show. We kick it off with a large block buster affair. The Towering Inferno(1974).
