So here’s a test. Who reads this? Who still listens? Let me know in comments section for this episode. This is going to be a pretty important test, and depending on its outcome Red is going to either keep rolling with the show or is going to hit the switch and put this podcast to bed. So if you still want this show to be a thing you’d better speak up, otherwise Anime Pulse will come to an end. That said, here’s the rundown for this episode: Red and Ryo try a new introduction with Red partially messing it up, and then they go straight into IRL news. After which Red reads the list of the most villains characters in anime and Ryo talks about an expensive Lum statue, or is it a figurine? Who really cares, it’s a giant depiction of Lum that’s probably already sold out. And to cap things off Red reviews the strong-female-warrior anime of Madan no Ou to Vanadis, and Ryo reviews the monster-girl filled world of Monster Musume.

After the news we dive into yet another Fallout discussion, where we talk about problems we have with the game and bugs that we’ve come across! All this and more up next on VGP 242! -Aki Read more>>

This week on VG Pulse, we have an extremely long episode as we try to get through as much of the post-VGA/PSX news explosion as possible! We start off with sidenotes of Black Friday sales and computer monitors, before we dive into what has got to be our longest and best ezmail segment ever! After the ezmails, we discuss recent news of the Konami/Kojima clusterf*ck, the results of the videogame awards, the fact that I have vertigo, and then we end off with a long tangent about 90’s TV shows we watched growing up! All this and more up next on VGP 241! -Aki Read more>>

Red’s enjoying his new job, Ryo is suffering from terrible anime, and this is another episode of Anime Pulse. This week’s episode includes topics like the classification of the otaku and what not to do at a cabaret, and of course the reviews where Red has the failing Amagi Brilliant Park and Ryo has crossdressing Himegoto. Aside from a super long portion of this week’s show going to Red reading off the final portions of Oreimo to Ryo while she writhes in pain, everything went well for a change.

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 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.

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.
