Baby it’s cold outside, so come in an warm up to another episode of Anime Pulse; it’s sure to warm the cockles of your heart. We start things out with a reminder that AP Christmas Giveaway is still ongoing, and then jump right into it with IRL news. Red’s been a busy bee and has plenty to share, meanwhile on Ryo’s side of things it’s been rather slow going. Industry news hits us with baby names, anime that makes you cry, and expensive Pokemon card updates. And bringing up the rear is a joint review of Punchline, an anime filled with plots, animation, and panty shots.
Ho ho ho everyone, it’s December so you know what that means! Yes, we’ll all be able to do our tax returns soon! I know, exciting stuff right? But if you’re not as pumped as I am about refunded money from the government, then how about some free shit from us?
That’s right, it’s the first ever Anime Pulse Christmas Giveaway.
So if people could do a short survey for us it would help us possibly get advertisers back. That would help us actual afford hosting…
So we haven’t heard any threats, veiled or otherwise, regarding the site’s visual facelift. If anyone was going to send us a murder-gram, we figure it would have happened already. Having not, we assume that everyone is pleased and glad to see. Also, we want to remind folks that the forums are alive and ready for action. We have pruned down the maze into something more straight forward regarding the shows. Continue reading Manga Pulse 352: Dino Ming
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.”
