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
It’s time for one of our theme episodes again. This time we’ve latched onto Gerrard Butler and his hilarious filmography. Starting with a dual discussion London Has Fallen. The movie takes place a year after the last one and Butler’s character is thinking of retiring. When the London PM dies, all world leaders convene for the funeral which turns out to be a trap. Butler must escort president Ekhart though London while stabbing everyone within arms reach like Roberto give a freshly honed shiv. Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 79: Scotsman has Fallen
Happy Saint Patrick’s day everyone! And you know what that means? Drinking of course! Not that it’s any different from how Joseph and Andrew work a normal episode, but at least there’s more of a reason this time. IRL news hits us with Joseph finishing Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Andrew quickly jumps into the forum topic and front page comments. Industry news hits us with an explanation for why we hear noise in a vacuum like space, and the announcement of a new season of the Ace Attorney anime. And finally are the reviews, where Andrew plays basketball and Joseph neuters a cat.
We’re finally back to doing live shows folks! So If you’ve ever wanted to participate in the production of Anime Pulse, now is the time to sign up to be a Patreon! That said, the first live show in years goes off without a hitch. Joseph fills us in on his reason for taking off from work for the first time in 10 months, and Andrew says “fuck life” and talks about show comments and forum replies. Then they cover some interesting news about a Virtual Youtuber becoming an Japanese Ambassador, and the fallout of the Author behind Rurouni Kenshin’s child porn arrest. And finally are the reviews with Joseph sweeping up what is left of Rumiko Takahashi, and Andrew warns you to not get too attached to anyone in a zodiac war.
Let the alcohol flow through you! Let it consume your speech, and rid you of your coherent thoughts. That’s right, buzzed Joseph is back with a drinking Andrew this week. First up Joseph talks about Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Andrew quickly blasts through some opinions on anime he’s not going to preview. Industry news sees Joseph talk about an email from a listener, and Andrew mentions how PSG fans used a really expensive banner of Goku. Then comes a joint review of a very violent man and a very dumb girl.
