Perhaps we should just change the title of this podcast to “Red drinks a lot, please someone stop him!” No? Oh well, I tried at least. This week Ichigo is still MIA, with no word on when we will be seeing his return to the show, so it’s just TC and Red as usual. The two of them kick off with some news about losing American habits in Japan, learning Canadian habits outside Japan, and Dragon Ball mugs with heart shaped Dominos Pizza. Then it’s onto the discussion thread, this week being asked what our favorite anime catchphrase is! Listen closely and see if you can count all the times Red flubbers his words. And finally it’s more reviews, TC sails away on the Kantai Collection while Red enters the Harem Matrix with Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara.

This week on VG Pulse, we have an exciting show filled with Kasness… until we kinda lose track of her… We start off with sidenotes of exploding computers and the reasons why our English co-host hasn’t been around much, before diving into the news where we discuss the few bits of worthwhile mentionings of the week, including fake game keys and match fixing scandals! After the news we finally go over the forums and finish off with my first look at The World Ends With You! All this and more up next on VGP216! -Aki Read more>>

Are you ready for another episode of Anime Pulse? Because drunk Red and exasperated TC are here to bring it to you! First up is two helpings of news. The normal news is first, with topics like Discotech continuing to license half the anime in the world, IKEA all-you-can-eat dessert buffets, and Ghoulish anime cafe collaborations. Then Red regales you with news about the website and the forums, pay attention if you’re a member of the site! This stuff is important! From there it’s into the weekly discussion thread, where this week we were asked to provide the best anime character breakdown. Finally it’s into reviews, as the previews have ended. Red is up first with the Shafted Mekaku City Actors, and TC brings up the rear with the bikini-clad Rolling Girls.

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.

We’re proud to present you an interview with one of my personal heroes, Yutaka Izubuchi. His record speaks for himself, but just the fact that he is responsible for the creation and designs of my favorite series, RahXephon is enough to make me giddy. So I hope you enjoy this.

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.

Solicitations to buy blue strawberry plants, pleasure our women longer or to find out the one weird food you should never eat end up in the trash. However, we almost always fulfill our manga shows with the suggestions of listeners. The chief reason being we are often lazy and get tired of hitting the random button. Read more>>
