Uh yes, I’d like to order a large pizza half pesto and half chicken and avocado. What do you mean you only serve Tex-Mex? And that my order sounds stupid? Well I’m just going to back my car out of the wall I broke and go to a quality establishment. Good day to you. Continue reading Manga Pulse 371: Helcker Selcker→
I’ll tell you why I wasn’t at elf practice. Because I dream of larger things. Even larger than the red coated fat man himself. I dream of a world where children will make their own toys and pay us for the privilege. Where curled shoes and pointy ears will be signs of repect amd not ridicule. In order to make that happen I had to skip out on elf practice, Spanky.
For their dual review, Tim and Weltall pick 13 Assassins. They found out that it happens to be a remake of another Japanese classic. The story centers around the evil brother of the Shogun who is gaining political power. To prevent this dangerous man from ascending to power, thirteen men will attempt to manipulate and maneuver him into a trap. It’s a well done political and tactical thriller that culminates in an amazing action set piece we were highly entertained by. Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 75: Donut Assassins→
This week on Anime Pulse we talk about bullying, and the scary protective father that Joseph would be if he were to have a daughter. Reminder: Never mess with big daddy Joseph. Andrew on the other hand has been playing more Resident Evil 7 and fired a gun for the first time, which is actually a lot lighter of a topic than Joseph’s IRL news. In reviews, Joseph gets some odd rush from a heroins death stare and Andrew is getting down with the Yuri railguns.
The first official episode of Anime Pulse for the 2018 year, and what an episode it is! Firstly we talk about what’s been going on in our lives, with Andrew playing a bunch of games and Joseph ranting about how his Fire Emblem waifu lost in a voting gauntlet. Then in the industry news, we got a piece on Amazon’s anime streaming service and another top anime poll about the most interesting anime of 2017. And finally come the reviews, where Andrew and Joseph both review, jointly, an anime about using anything to your advantage in a fight, even your penis.
This week on VG Pulse, welcome to 2018! We start off with brief side-notes of holidays and kittens, before diving to the the (gasp!) EZMAILS! Afterwards, we head on off into the regular news, where we primarily cover the two big stories of the past few weeks; the unfortunate tragedy of the Kansas Swatting, and Logan Paul being a jackass! After the news, Millennium gives his first look on Production Line, and we finish off with talk of food! All this and more up next on VGP 295! -Aki Continue reading VG Pulse 295: Crossing The Line→
Bit of a different show this time around as Joseph and Andrew go over their top 10 anime of 2017, some they have finished and others they have not. But first we got IRL news about Fire Emblem Heroes, terrible manga to anime transitions, and forum topics. There’s also the industry news, with yet two more top 10, these ones about cute twins and the top 10 anime according to Anikore.
And that’s it folks, that’s the final episode of 2017. (Technically)
Ho ho ho, just in time for Christmas it’s an episode of Anime Pulse! This week Joseph talks about spending money on his digital waifu, and Andrew is back in Scotland visiting family. Then in industry news we got topics like the most appealing anime characters of 2017, and William Shatner coming out as a fan of the anime. Finally are reviews with Andrew regaling us with a lyrical review of stinky fish, and Joseph brushing over a mediocre anime about an annoying tsundere and a useless princess.
After a little more political talk about Net Neutrality, the guys get into things with IRL news about Andrew falling down the ranked Street Fighter ladder and Joseph totally ready for his upcoming vacation. Industry News brings to the table a piece on the Kanji of the Year, as well as the death of another big name in recent anime. And ending things is a review from Andrew of ballroom dancing, and the tears that Joseph shed watching a board game.
This week on VG Pulse, we found Kas just in time for Christmas! We start off with sidenotes of Pokemon, before diving into the regular news, where we discuss the verdict of Net Neutrality, Crytek lawsuits, and the success of the Nintendo Switch! After the news, we dive into the most amazing forums we’ve had in eons (thanks so much guys, keep it up!!). Following the forum, Millennium and I do a joint review of one of t̶h̷e̸ ̵m̷o̵s̵t̷ ̷i̸n̶t̶e̶r̸e̴s̶t̴i̵n̶g̶ ̶g̸a̵m̶e̵s̶ ̴o̸f̷ ̶t̵h̴e̷ ̶y̸e̷a̷r̸,̵ ̷̯͍͙͑͊͐͠D̷̞̠̝̤͘ò̸͇k̷͚̙͚̗͌͆̃̈i̶̜̖̬̓̈́ ̵̨͆̕D̵̳̎ó̷̧͉͠͠k̸̜̤̩̳̓i̴̲̲̍̌ ̷̳̍̇̉̈́L̷̺̭̽̅̾ḯ̶̳͈ͅṱ̸̔̃̿̕e̷͎̮̺̔̐̀̀ͅr̵͖̰̠̾a̷̦͋t̸͇̪̐͂ủ̸̬̝͗͝r̷͙͔̋̈́͗̓͜ȩ̸̞̙͎͑͑͛ ̸̹́̐͝ͅC̸͇̤͆̿̽̾ľ̷̢̍ȗ̶̟̇b̴̲͒!̸̼̭͙̣̓ ̵̢͉̃̿͝ b̶̛̦̼̜̥͓̱͔̠̓͑͑̊̏̈́̿̕é̶̢̡̫͈̤̗̺̫͙̹͉̖͔̪͍̖̔̏̂̽̍͝͠f̷̡̢̡̫͚̤̹̼͍͍͇͚͇͚͕͛̆͐͗̄̕͜͝o̶̢̨̢͕͙̠̮̱̱̙͕̣͐̍̈́̚͝r̶̛̳͌̾̓́͗͗́̐͒̃̚͜͜͝ͅͅȩ̷̧͍̰̮͕͙̓̏͌ͅͅ ̸̢̟̥͙͎̤̼̥͙̹̜͎̂̂̓̊̋͌̍̀̒́̉͘w̸̨̙͓̤͙̆ͅȩ̷̼̤̥̬̥̠̰̜̗̳̥̗̾̃͆̅̍̈́͗͂̅̇̓̇̔͝ͅ ̶̛̝͎̪̯͙̞̫͛̾͜͝f̸̢̤̩̪͓͉͇͕̗̻͖̥͇̑̎̔̆́̽͂͗̃̈́̈́͝͝ͅi̶̧̨͚͔̥̱̰̙͚̮̗͎̩͐̏̀̈̕͘n̴̛͈̄̎͊̍͛̔͒̾̒̀̈͊͝į̵̞͕͚̮͈̜̟͚̟̦̫̜̮͔́́͛̏̀̕s̷̛̹͔͗̔̽̃͋̋͛̊̾̄̆h̷̪͙̮͈̠̞̟̙̫̠͂̆́̄͑̚͜ ̷͂͛̂͆̅̆͑̄̚ͅő̵̜̟̑͠f̷̖̝̓̇̎̋̈́̉̀̏͆͘̕͝f̸̞̺̤̝̥̽̓̕͜ ̵̤̗̰̔̀̓̓́̒̈́̅w̷̖̘̳̣̹͍̼̙̝̣̥̙͚̔̂̆̓͊͂̒͘͘ͅͅḯ̸̦̺̝̦̪͓t̶̨̢̺͖͇͚̼̬̻̺̝̣͕̱̯̖̔͋̿h̶̹̓̇̇̈́̉̔̊͂̿͌̓̚̕͠ ̴͕̠̥̠̔t̷̠̰̮̜͖̀̄a̷̡̤̠̙̽̃̑̐̃͒̓̀̒̉͌́͛̉͘l̴̰̥̠͉̘͍͔̩͛͗̒̂ͅͅͅk̶̡̡̰̞̤͔̩͚̪̑̾͒ͅͅ ̴̢̩̘̰̠̟͆̍̈́̔̾̚ō̵̘̼̦̬̄̉̒̿̕͠f̴̡̧̯̦̟̞̪͓̋̈́̓̌͗̇͗͂̂͛͑̓̔͠ ̶̞͕̭̙̙̂̊͝ą̴̢̛̛̩̣͕̪̭͍̞͔͎̘̜̻̔͗̈́̿̔̈̌̾̑̎͝͠͝n̸͉̠̮̰̳̟̥̙͊͆i̸̘̘̹̦̬̳̻̫͕̙̝̻͌̀̓m̴͔̬̩͉͍̫̗̲̩̘̜̍̇̉̈́̆͌̈̀̔̆̃̌̏ͅe̷̖͔̘͍̓̇̆̌̓̇̚ á̷̛̹̳͕̭̰͑̃̀͊̎̐́̋͐̃̌̊̄̋̌͒̏̕͝ṅ̶̢͓̲͖̖̠̳̪͋̄͊̽̈́̀͂́̈͒͗̍̒̈́͆͝͝ḑ̷̬͍̘̼̼̬̬͚̮̝͕͉̻͐́̀́̃́̍̋̑͐͐͠͝͝ ̴͉̖͉̘̹̏͑̽͒́̚̕͝J̶̧̨̡̧̡̧̡̫̖͖̭̝̬̙̳̗̱͉̝̗̰͙̯̣̃̊̀̽͒̒̑̌̿̏̌̃̄͐̕͜U̶̧̧̧̱̩͇̫̤̹̟̭̮̹͇̖͕̣̯̘̠̬͙͈̫͑̇̇͒̆̑͆̀̐̒͒̍̈̕͠͝S̴͕̠̓̄̕T̷̗͎̝̖͖̞̗͙͚̜͌̉̂͝ ̶̨̛̛̛̭̪̺̰̼̪͎͚̘̪̭̈́͛͊͑́́̈̂̃̅̈́͛̏̽͋̔̋͝͝͝͝M̸̢̛̩̣̱̝͚͍̲̲͈̣̪͇̩̩͇̱̦͎̮̩̭̤͆͐̔͐͛͐̈́͗̄͌̋̓̏̈́̎̒̽͗̓͘̕͜͝͠͝ͅƠ̵̡͇͎̺̠͕͖̠͎̟͓͈̲͕̪̳̳͇̘̅̎̽̈́̾̈͗̂̈̀̀͆̐̍́̇̑̏͛͐̾͜͝͝N̸̦̏̋͗̍͛͒̍̓̎̈́̊̿̽̅̎͘͘͠͝Į̸͍̱̞͖͎̝̳͈̫͍̮̈́ͅK̴̨̢̡̝̫̬̫̤͎̗͉̹̠͔̱̼̗͎̹̳̬͍͎̰̹̽̄̔͆̎̋͂͂̂̍̀̀̉̇̽͐̅͊͘͝Ą̷̧̱̗̪̻̳͎̼̓͊͛͋̾̈́̊͒͂̊̏̇́̏̉̌̿̓̕͘̕̕͠͠ͅ ̴̢̡̢͔̩̮̲͇̬͍̫̟̙̂̏J̴̨̡̛͎͔̫̖̰̪̤̹͎̭̠͎͕̟̥͉̺̻̘͓͓͇͒̅̍́̑͗̋̒̎̕̕U̵̧̨̡̢̥̖̳̜̺͕̱̟̩̥͕͚͚̬̲̺̯̬̾̽̒̕͜ͅS̸̨̧̗̯͍̩̹̹̫̼̳͔̺͓͍̬̤̽̽̑̾́̉̆͊̄̈́̌̕T̶̫̎̌̓̐̐̀̍̾̌̈̔́̓̎̈͘̚̕ ̶͎͇̮̮̲̖̖̭̝̘̬̄̓̃̂͛̅ͅM̷̢̗̰̖̜̻̝̟̪̟̦̗̖̳̐͊͐̎̀̂̈́̒͛͐͜͝͝Ǫ̵̡̧̤͖̙̪̣͕͉͈͇́̈́̉̆̀̑̇̊̎̽̍̍͝Ǹ̷̨̢̡̞̗̩͍͖̟̺͛̈́̄I̶̘̫͍̣̟̘̟̯̮̤͙̮̬͚͖͗̈́̿̊́͂̽́̂̂̾̓̾̓̐̍́̌̒̄̉͜͠K̶̡̛͖̽͂͌̌̒͌̓͂͐͊̍̆͠À̶̧̧͎͓̜̻̪̣͔̥̉͂̐̅̈́̀͘̚͝ ̶̡̛͉̘̲͓̯̞̖͓͇̳̜̥̥̣͕̬̱͕̲̥͕̊͑͊̇̈̓̋̀͐̀̾̈́̑̀͆̏̍̚͜͠͠J̷̡̨͕̠̫̰̥̩͍̩̘̣̺̼͙̪͔̘͎͂͌̌͂̑̃̒̒̄͗́̃̐̚̚͘ͅȔ̶̹̿̈̚S̴̢̨̯͖̯̣̯̳̥̠̯̳̳̙̦̤̖̼̹̯̫͓͐̇̑̈́̄͗̀͗̄̽̊͐̆͂̊̑͌̉̆̈́͘͝͠T̷͉̦͉̟̜̩̰̒̿̈́͑̉̓̽̐̎̃̃̐̌̔̎͂͐̏́́̕̕͠ ̴̨̝̣̥̞̻̗̠̥̠͕̮̘̜̣̘̝̱͌̾͊̀̐̆͐͝͠M̴̡̛̩͙̹̯͚̩͙͉͙̥͇̳͍̱͚͖̲̀̓̽̄́̽̀̒̓̃̒́̂̓͗͝ͅƠ̴̡̛͉̝̥̲̰̗̒̾́̌̀Ṋ̶̨̬̜̠̱̥̑͂͋͐̐̔̅̈́͑̈́͋̓̅̌̈̒̌̕͘͝I̷̡͙̗͔̯̜͎̥͎͇̩̮̫̩̬̙̓K̷̡̢͕͖̬̰͍̭̲͙͉̲̳̫̠͌̐̾̍̽͐͐́̇̏̇̄͊̀̈̔̄̈́̊̂͊͛̌̆͘A̴̫̼͇̻̝̥͗̒͆̈̍̂̃̒̀͂́́͂̊̅̽̏̓̾͘͘͘͠ ̷̨̛̘͕̭̯͇̼̞͖̙̭̘̙̖̦̼̤̈͒͗͑̍̒̃͗̆́͛̍͂̿͜͝͠͠Ĵ̸̧̥͍̩͓͕̮͚̠̰̱͎̘͙̗̞̦͙̟͖͉͖͓̌̓̐̐͜U̵̧̡̡̳̗̲̥͎̫̘̻̮͉͙͖̖̟͉̣̠̺͚̰̬̺̓̈́͆̉̐̓͝ͅŞ̸̭͖̲͉̲͚͖̫̭̖̜͔̻͕̮̳͖̥̦̰̞̟̈́͆̕Ţ̸̧̛̦̹̗̜͔̲͚͓̘̟̺̥̤̦͉͚̰̌͑̄͗̎́͂́͌̈́͒̒͋̎̂̉̐̽͑̊͊͛͝ ̴̨̝̺̞̥̗͈̥̲̠̹̼̘̣͔̟̦̺̝̟͕̫̽̆̈́̈̍͒͊͑̈́̆͛̑̈́͋̌̂͆̚̕͝͠͠ͅM̷̨̡̡̡͇̙̩̫̦̣͕͕̜̜̗̝̩͍̘̫̮̗̎̒͂̽́̍͒̉̎̑͊̎͝Ǫ̶̡̘̦̦̳̮̣̠̺̖̥̟̳̲̺̭͍̦̺̝͍̲͆͒̃̋̍̅͝N̴̢̧̥̝̝̭̞͇̞̜̊͒̔͘͘͜͝͝Ḭ̵̡̧̬̟̲̗͙̤͎̘͓͎̼͍̖̟̲̠͛̒̽͐̓͜͜Ḱ̵̢̘̘͕͇͕̞͖̲̻̼̐̿̓͊͑̚͝Ā̴͖̟͍̦̥͍̜͋̎̀̆̏̌̇͜ͅ ̶̢̤̥̭̺͚̈͋͛̈͑̔͐̑͊̀̐̋̔͊̚̚J̵̡̝̖͙͇̣̓͛̈́̔̋̑̅͂̀͛̃̿̍̆̂̔́͐͘̚͝͝͠͠ͅŲ̵̧̰̪͚̣͇͚͔̿̀̓̄ͅS̶̨̝̰͈̮̦͈̺̟̦͉̮̤̙̫̩͓̻̍̽T̶̢̢̧̛̛̩͍͓͔͇͚̙̺͑͗̀́͑̃̓͊̀̈̽̏̕͠͝͠ͅ ̴̨͎̻̯͎̫̫̭̮̯̭̜̫̳͙͚̩͔͎̯͔̎̐̈́͆̀̍͘͝M̸̧̢̛̙͚̭̩̳̹̙̳̭̥͉̻̞̳̹̬̲̔̐͂̽͒̈̆͗̿́͋͆̒̒̊̀̑͘͜͝͠Ó̶̡̡̻̬̳̖̣͈͈͔̻͓̟̠̠̻̩̣̪̟̩̥̰̙͊̈́̕͜Ǹ̶̡̢̢̛̯̻͉̰͇̱̥̩̼̼͔̠̺̗͚̗͙͇̼̲̓̐̆́̏̀̈́̄̒͂̅͋̀̔̇̏͜͝͝ͅĮ̵̲̠̩͖̪̫̮̻̥̘͙͉̳̥͓̜̝̺́K̵̢̢̬͇̘̥̮̗̘̖̳̜̰͕̅̐̈́̉͂̔́̓̊̃̐̂̐̕Á̸͈͙̣͓̺̮͖̄̏̀͂͂͆̐ͅ ̴̡͔̫͙͖̙̝̻̣͈̫̠͌̇͗͒͒̆̃̀̐͒͗̕͜͝J̶̨̢̢̤̮̰̺̗̰̬̫̍̆͌̅́̈̐̓́̐͒̂̓́̌̑͋̈̚͘Ų̸͇̩̯͍̻̹̞̗̱̫̩͜͠Š̷͕̺͚̝̹̃̉̂̑̅̓Ţ̷̻̳̹̟̹͎͎̲͍̌͌̔͆́͒̉̽̕͝͝͠͝ ̷̬̯̮̲̄̌͊̓́̎̽̿̐͝M̴̛͈͕̜̲̳͖͖̞̪̮͒̐͛̆͂͋̀̒́̑̈͊͌̽͒̀̎̀̑͘͘̚͜͠Ơ̷̱̦͗̀̐̈́́̀͑̀̍͗̾͐̅̾͛̃͌̚͘͝͝Ṉ̵̩̪̔̋̅̇̇̆̆̈͝Į̷͓̻̩̯͙̣̻͔̲̗̲̰̲͓͒̉̾̅̄̋ͅK̷̘̞͓̫̥̥̪̳̦̲͎̈̉͗̍̐̔͑́̈́̎́͠ͅA̵̢̧̟̦̩̜͕̣̮̠̤̲͉͕̮̩̾̏̂̅̋̅̇͗̂̊̊͘͝ͅ ̷̧̧̢̞̜͖̣̹̺̗̪̮̪̟͔̭͓̐͌̆͑͛̾͑̄͂͂͗͝J̷̠͔͆͊̉̈͋͛̽̈̏͊̚Ú̶̢̨̗͇̖͖̖̦͎̟̤̪͙͍͙͓̩̥̯͔̻̤͚̯͇͋̎́́̑̽͋͐̑͛̔̈́̃͂̂͊̑̈́̏͘͝͝Ṡ̴̨̧̡̫̯̱̘͎̰̬͕̲̰̣̙̘̲͎̱͝͠ͅT̸̺̼̯̈͛̚ͅ ̵̳̠̬̱̲̮̺͚͇͇̘̤̟͕͌̅̊̈́̀́̂͒̆̆̒̍́̑́͘͜ͅM̶̢̝̲̝͓̝̼͖̻͙̟̥͇͑̓̎͆́͊͒̈̈̋̾̐̈̾̑̒̅̕͠͠O̸̙̰̤͈͓̰͚̮͈̲̟̞̾̒̌̏͋͛̈́̈́́̀̃̿̊̓̓̀̏͆̕̕̕͠͠͠ͅŅ̶̛̟̝̞̳̫͕̋̆̆̽̇̈̈̋̂́̿̾͝Į̶̢̭̜̭͙̲͔͍̩͈̭͕̯̿͑̌̊͐͗͘͝K̸̼̹̤̤̱̥͙͈̩̗̪͎̪̰͔͚̮͍̮̯̫͈̝̣͐̔́̋͗͑̈̄͛̏͂̕̚͝Ā̷̢̮͔͈̩̣̮̪̈́̿́̾̍͝.̷͉̬̠͚̺̭̟̼̪͖̜̜̼͔̈́̋̿̌͂́͂̒̃͘̕͘͝.̸̨̘̻̲̺̱̰̲͚̳̥͋̿̈́͗̄̒̑͒͛͆̀.̶̟̼̘̜̼̲͈̬̘̦̬͉͔͈̳̑̈͆͛̚̕ͅ
We kicks things off this episode with talk about Net Neutrality, a regulation and law that will be ending on December 14th if the idiot FCC chairman has his way. Afterwards we got IRL news, with Andrew’s career as a Street Fighter returning and Joseph dreading the coming of winter in NYS. Then in the reviews Andrew bets it safe on his second major gambling anime, and Joseph stares lustfully at a masochistic crusader.
