It’s week two of winter previews, and with TC being much more careful about his audio levels he proves to come across just fine this time. As usual Red and TC jump right into news, talking about the Japanese Isis hostage situation, super valentines day chocolates to impress your loved one with, and body pillows that are now just as warm as if they were truly alive. Then it’s onto the the Discussion Thread, as they discuss the answers to the question: What anime character would you like to run your local government? And finally they got more previews from the Winter 2014/2015 season. TC indulges us with The Rolling Girls, Sengoku Musou, and Yuri Kuma Arashi. Meanwhile Red shares Juuou Mujin no Fafnir, Aldnoah.Zero 2nd Season, and Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata. Remember to nominate us in the Podcast Awards that are going on right now, we’re hoping to make it as winners for the Cultural/ Arts or the People’s Choice categories; fingers crossed!

Hello everyone, Red here. As you may or may not know the 2015 Podcast Awards are now beginning, and as they always do it starts out with nominations. We were able to make it into the nominations and into the main voting round last year, but we fell short in the final voting round behind The Moth. Personally I think NPR related shows hog way too much of the podcast awards, but as they are a publicly sponsored production I can’t rail on them for being corporate slaves.

So as with last year I would like to take a moment and ask that you guys, our listeners, our fans, our members, our subscribers, everyone, go and fill out the nominations for the Podcast Awards. I’d like to see us shoot for the People’s Choice and the Cultural/Arts categories, so go ahead and add us in for both of them.

Now you can only vote ONCE, so if you have any other podcasts you’d like to submit for a certain category, take your time and do so. Now if you don’t have any other podcasts or you don’t want to be bothered to do more work then I’m asking you to do, that’s ok, you can just fill out the two categories I’d like Anime Pulse to be entered into and submit that.

Here is the link to click that will take you to the Podcast Awards website:

http://podcastawards.com

Assuming we make it past nominations, then I’ll make another post to remind everyone to vote.

I’ll also mention this on our next show this coming sunday, just in case you don’t visit the front page as often as I do.

Thank you for your time, and wish us good luck!

Do you feel that? A winter chill has brought us a brand new season of anime, and thanks to Jack Frost all three of the musketeers are here to bring you the sneak peeks into what this season has to offer. But first it’s news, as TC talks about Toonami, Red cooks up some Ice Cream Curry, and Ichigo morns the loss of the opera singer behind Ghost in the Shell’s soundtrack. Then the trio swings into a new Discussion Thread, where the question this week asked you what you would change in one of your favorite animes. Finally Ichigo, TC, and Red delve into previews. Ichigo brings to the table Shinmai Maou no Testament and Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, Red has Absolute Duo and Seiken Tsukai no World Break, and TC introduces Kantai Collection: KanColle and Koufuku Graffiti. Sorry about TCs audio quality, without the waifu around he’s just a huge mess and plum forgot to check his wavelengths as we got started. I promise if you put up with it this time, I’ll be sure to remind him to step out of the tardis before recording next week.

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.

In this episode we tackle the movie that was as fleeting as the fame of its star, Robert Pattinson. Of course we’re talking about the Twilight star’s attempt to throw off the chains of vampire typecasting and become a serious actor in Water for Elephants[2011]. He’s accompanied by Reese Witherspoon who’s character is younger than his while she’s a decade his senior. Also Christoph Waltz who plays an evil Nazi working in a circus. Read more>>
