Hello ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to another exciting and anime-tastic episode of Anime Pulse, your one news source for all things anime and Japan related. This week our intrepid trio are back, as they preview some of the shows that have come out for the 2014 Fall Season. We have news of delicious looking burgers, chibatman offering his services as the dark night of Tokyo, and  a discussion thread that will have you ready and waiting for Halloween to be over. That’s right, the leaves are falling in beautiful shades of orange and red and we’re inside where it’s nice and warm. So take a seat, grab a cup of hot tea, and relax as you immerse yourself in the soothing voices of Red, TC, and Ichigo.

It’s that time again where the numbers in the episode line up in sequential order. Sure it’s descending but it’s still very satisfying. Like finding out that you’ve got no spare parts left over after assembling some flat packed furniture.

Within this mighty episode, Tim reviews Gokukoku no Brynhildr. We’re treated to a hard working student, wracked with guilt over the death of his childhood friend. When a girl shows up as a transfer student, groan, looking exactly like his dead friend, he’s understandably freaked out. Watch a promising manga being the slow slide into mediocrity as it slips into Crackers.

Weltall then reviews OKuSan. Wherein some mangaka decided to ask the bold question, “what if the large breasted character from any shonen manga was, get this, a bride who stayed at home and did fuck-all?” Thrill as she receives a washing machine and eventually learns to use it! No one will be seated for the chapter where she goes to the gym and signs up for crossfit! No one will be surprised when Weltall announces it’s placement on Borders.

Sometimes we like to perform scientific experiments here in the pulse network. We are, after all, prone to bias just as the next squishy humans in spite of our expensive cybernetic upgrades. For example, there is the hypothesis that when Tim picks the movie of the week Weltall is sad.

In yet another test done towards that end we did a joint review of Ghost in the Machine. A vehicle for Karen Allen of “Who the fuck is that? Oh yeah, the lady from Raiders of the Lost Ark” fame. It also has Chris Mulkey who is another of the inexplicably recognizable members of the “That Guy” cadre. It features a serial killer who gains immortality on an early nineties internet, the ability to hack electrical lines and a very pixilated body. Did we mention that there’s a scene where people play a video game like a lobotomized Walrus?

Weltall then discusses a spiritual successor to Clerks called Bros Before Hoes. It even features a video store for hijinks and shenanigans. Tim then digs further into the cesspool of the seventies and talks about The Car. It features a younger, scowly James Brolin and the inspiration for a character design in an episode of Futurama.

This week on VG Pulse, we finally have a Kas back! We start out with lengthy side notes about why she’s been missing, and me shamelessly advertising World of Shindana! Afterwards we head off to the ezmail [gasp!], before diving into the normal newz where we discuss future HDD’s and the current releases of the XBOX One. After the newz we skip the forums and instead head off into my review of Heavenly Sword, and Xahldera’s review of Crisis 2! All this and more up next on VGP204! -Aki Read more>>

Ouran and Geth talk to the lovely ladies who founded Onmyodo Shoes. They talk about the unfortunate closing of Onmyodo, and what may happen in the future. Enjoy the high energy, and the background noise that the dealer’s room provides.

Armed with a new camera that can withstand the brunt of energetic kids (the Olympus Stylus-8000 Tough), I bring you the first pictures of fun Engrish shirts.

A bit deeper than I expect when I think “Airwalk”, but I guess it ties in.
PC010001
AIRWALK
A DAILY DOSE OF FREEDOM
inner peace and enlightenment can only be achieved after there are no places left on your body to bruise
Airwalk
A DAILY DOSE OF FREEDOM
when this happens, take a moment to look down, and realize you’ve found the ground whether you’re ready or not
upon the attempt to transcend the metaphysical one can easily get lost alone

One word… “ElJohn”? Seriously?
PC010002
FULL-BLOWN DIGNITY
Loud Exclamation
QUICK AS GREASED LIGHTNING
STRUGGLING AGAINST
DIFFICULTIES FOR THE SAKE
OF VENGEANCE
FULL-BLOWN DIGNITY
THE FINISHING
TOUCHES
ElJohn
struggling against difficulties for the sake of vengeance

I’m currently watching TV on my DS, yay for Japanese tech. The Minshuto (DJP) has 276 seats out of the 480, with the Jiminto (LDP) only having 82. This means that Aso Taro is out of power and Hatoyama Yukio is in power. Join the rest of Japan in rejoicing that one group of old, power-hungry and corrupt men has been replaced with an almost identical group (heck, they were the same party until 1996) of old, power-hungry and corrupt men. Yay for choice!

EDIT: Now the DJP is at 303, LDP at 115, with only 14 seats left to report. Komeito has 19, Communist party has 8, Social Democratic has 5, with 16 seats split among other small parties.

So, I spent some time with the Gundam. We got up close and personal, I hesitate to call it a “thing”, but there was a connection there. I approached slowly.

Alright, I’m back, unpacked, and ready to talk about Comiket.

I’m sure you’ve already heard, but this was a record attendance event. Over 560,000 over the three days. Talk about crazy. Since I’ve already talked about Day 1 in my previous post, let’s talk about Day 2.

First off, after finally getting a chance to go through the Catalog, I have a better feel for the event. Day 1 appears to be a lot of Yaoi stuff, Day 2 is a lot of Game/Videos and Day 3 is a lot of the male-oriented doujin. Of course, every day has lots of doujin, but that’s the emphasis. So, plan in hand, I was ready.

So I just got back from Comiket 76, Day 1. It was a wild time. I left the hotel just after 8am, got to the Rinkai line, Kokusai-Tenjijou station around 8:45 or so. The crowds weren’t bad until I saw the actual line. Then I followed the traffic around to the end of the line, almost a kilometer away!

No one will be seated for the chapter where she goes to the gym and signs up for crossfit! No one will be surprised when Weltall announces it’s placement on Borders.
