Three 4′s in a row? Is that bad luck or something someplace? Probably. Thankfully we encounter no bad luck this episode, as everything goes on without a hitch. This week we get a guest from the 4PlayerAnimeCast, the podcast that recently had Red join them as a guest; SpireWrecker. After a brief introduction, it’s onto the show! Starting off with news as usually, with topics like Red’s obsession for Yanderes turning him into a kitchen knife salesman, a paternity board game that is sweeping Twitter, and a video series that teaches girls how to not show their panties by showing their panties. After news it’s onto a hotly debated discussion thread, who do you think is the best Swordsman sans the supernatural and superhuman abilities? And to round out the season, Red and Spire give a lengthy joint review of Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata, better known as Saekano.

This week on VG Pulse, we have a supervised and news filled forum show!

He’s back ladies and gentlemen! TC hath return! Kind of… Waifu Reina takes the hot seat while TC plays backseat driver, she’s only been on a couple times before but she’s already a pro! After some talk about TC’s life and various topics, the crew jumps into news about what kind of gal twitter users in Japan prefer, horrible otaku fashion from the swedish, and active WWII US bombs still being found in Japan. After news a very small discussion thread is quickly run through, with either the fact it was such a niche question or the forums kept crashing the entire week; who is the best cosplayer you’ve ever seen? And finally it’s onto the reviews. Reina kicks things off with yoru no yatterman, and Red rounds out the show with the final season of Hayate no Gotoku.

This week on VG Pulse, Kas is unable to stop by due to heath concerns (again), though Millennium and I do our best to pick up the slack! We start out with side notes of guitars and tv shows, before going over an important announcement from former boss man Ichigo! We then dive into the regular news, in which we discuss Steam redesigning their controller again, the talks of a Gran Turismo movie that’s really actually not as bad of an idea as it sounds, and the impressive story of how Sony totally screwed up and made a lot of people really angry. After the news we head on off into Millennium’s review of The Evil Within, and finish off with final thoughts of how much we’re both looking forward to April! All this and more up next on VGP 220! -Aki Read more>>

E here! No lie– this was one of my favorite parts of Animeland Wasabi. Walking through the dining area, I heard the faint serenade of the Tetris theme. I grabbed Weltall and drug him through the crowd to the piano to get a closer look. Read more>>

Originally, we were only scheduled to have an interview with Laura Post. Lucky for us, she brought along some friends of hers, who just happened to also be guests! So we sat down for a nice little chat with Laura (Ahri in League of Legends, Rosalia in Sword Art Online), Lisle Wilkerson (Tekken, Street Fighter), and Julie Rei Goldstein (Risai in Paradise Kiss and Precia Testarossa in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha).

Greetings everyone. In place of an AP show this week I offer this interview of 萩尾 望都 Hagio Moto. We were lucky in that Weltall was able to get an interview with this pioneer of shojo manga. I have undertaken the transcription of the Japanese portion of the conversation, for those interested. The translator that was provided was very good. In addition to translation Ms. Hagio’s answers he also added some extra context as he felt was needed. I only transcribed the questions and the Japanese section of the interview.

We’re proud to present you an interview with Roland Kelts. He is a lecturer at Tokyo University and author of the book “Japanamerica: How Japanese pop culture has invaded the US”. We talk a lot about cultural and business differences between the US and Japan. I really enjoyed talking with him and I hope you enjoy this great interview.

Many of us have undoubtedly at one point or another wished ill for our employers. Such was the case for a twenty-nine year old Elementary teacher in Yokohama’s Tsurumi-ku. This teacher took out his frustrations by writing blogs on the Internet. In said blogs the teacher stated that he wanted to kill the Vice-Principal of his school. He also stated,  “If a teacher is murdered, it will be me who’s responsible, for certain.” Read more>>

There’s been a lot of hype surrounding the new Pokemon themed Shinkansen (bullet train) by the JR East company running here in Japan. Well today I took a trip on it. It was the Asama Shinkansen between Tokyo and Nagano. We start off with a pic of good old Pikachu and the fire monkey (names will not be included other than Pikachu because I don’t know them. If you care look it up yourself).

Forty-Nine year old Tadashi Usami was found dead in an empty swimming pool around six-twenty A.M. on Thursday Morning. His body was found face down in the pool of a residential neighborhood. Police believe that Usami was on his way home to his hotel when he stumbled into the back yard believing this was his home. Having been drinking for most of the evening with a colleague near JR Ebisu station, Usami being extremely intoxicated was unable to tell the difference between this house and his hotel. Alcohol is believed to be the main factor. Foul play is not suspected.
