IRL news about Hacksaw Ridge, Pokemon Sun, and new jobs that smell like overbearing fruits and flowers. Industry news covers topics like the difficulty in addressing homosexuality in anime, and who is earning the top dollar working with anime. Reviews this week are of Pan de Peace and JoJo, one is about a group of girls who like bread a little too much and the other is about muscle bound men fighting each other with their personas. I’ll let you guess which one is which.
Would you believe we have things moving along with the website? It’s true. If you don’t believe us, how are you not noticing the format change we’ve enacted? You’re not having this read to you by a robot are you? Damn you Cortana and Siri, stop stealing jobs from healthy eyeballs! We do not submit to your gentle tyranny of soft spoken control!

This week we did the show just before our local Comic-Con. Which was impressive as we’re pretty lazy and tend to slack on shows around convention times. The only thing we figure is someone left us a brick of cocaine which we dropped into our tea. Nothing quite like powdered motivation to ensure we get things done.
Tim reviews, apparently, a sequel to something we’ve already reviewed, Freezing Zero. Way back when we were still in the one hundreds(Tim believed it was in the 120’s though it was 177) one of us did the manga Freezing. This is the spin off which features, presumably, the same main character. Tim describes it as Evangelion, swapping out Shinji for a Tits McGee and Angels for Novas. While it attempts to spice things up with exposed nipples, it’s far too boring to be interesting. It gets Burn It for being an obnoxious clone.
Weltall then talks about Musunde Hiraite(by Minase Mayu). We specified the author as just image searching the name pulls up pictures that have nothing to do with the manga Weltall reviewed. It’s a bit confusing as it doesn’t follow the format we’re quite used to. The first chapter revolves around one person desperately trying to confess to a girl. Then a character from that chapter gets a promotion to protagonist for the second chapter. The unique storytelling device was interesting by not buttressed by enough story to earn more than a Borders.
It’s another episode of Anime Pulse, like Red always introduces it as such. IRL news is up first with discussions of Hellsing Abridged, job hunting, and Dr. Strange. Industry News has monster girl contests and yummy pocket monsters, and reviews consist of a lazy computer programmer in “Battle Programmer Shirase” and a reluctant magical girl in “Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara.”
It’s been a little bit since we did a theme episode. Or it might not have been so long and we have short memories. That’s what happens when your brain is fueled by rage and stupid like ours. We settled on a show focused on Bill Murray. Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 55: Bill Murray
Happy Halloween everyone, another episode of Anime Pulse has arrived. Not that it’s a spooky edition or anything, unless you consider Red’s verbal molestation frightening, in which case prepare to cower in fear. We got some news about Ryo’s latest short story and Red’s first play through of a Persona game, followed up by crossdressing cosplay getting a limp thumbs up and expensive smoking for the 2020 olympics. As for reviews, Ryo handles the short but cute Bananya and Red gets all touchy feely with Nanatsu no Taizai.
Fall’s here everyone, and with it comes a new season of anime. Sadly this season is somewhat lacking, so this will be the only previews show for the fall 2016 season. First up however is IRL news about new microphones, anime conventions, and bad movies. That’s followed up by industry news about Goku’s big secret, an expensive Pokemon card, and foreigners being called a hassle on bullet trains. And lastly are the previews, of which there are six, so buckle in, you’re in for a long one.
