Remember the good old days? Back when there were only a couple of channels on the television. When families would get dressed up to fly a plane. And back when you could just stuff your kids into an attic, pretend they don’t exist and move on with your life.
That’s the overarching plot of the book Vanessa and Tim decide to tackle in this episode. Flowers in the Attic is about a family who is very happy until tragedy strikes. Dad gets killed in a car accident, the quickest way to remove a pesky spouse for the purposes of drama. This kicks off the plot of a coming of age story.

After climbing through sewers, sifting through coins and murdering random plants, the acid has finally worn off. Tim and Weltall have climbed back out, cleaned themselves off, posted bail, and broke into a closed Borders warehouse to read some manga. It took them a long time to find something original buried among the unsold copies of Princess Ai.
Tim reviews Hoankan Evans no Uso. This is basically what happens when when a mangaka snorts meth and watches a Sergio Leone marathon. It’s about a legendary lawman in some vague part of the Old West. While he’s proficient at catching criminals, he has yet to land a girlfriend and is contstantly stirking our while trying to use his father’s advice which fails. Once some characters are established, the plot picks up and the humor begins working getting it up to Crackers.
Weltall then digs into Dolly Kill Kill. It’s about rejected character designs from Five Nights at Freddy’s suddenly appearing and ushering in the apocolypse. The first couple of chapters set things up and skip forward about a year. Our main character finds a group of survivors who are attempting to find the creatures weaknesses. Give the strong characterization and solid story, it earns a Read it Now.
Many don’t know the origins of Tim the Enchanter, but when he was a child, he attended his Ceremony of Twelve and received his title and role; The Rager. Despite what the name means to those of low caliber, it is an important profession. He spent years listening to those around him discuss how wonderful the new Taylor Swift album is, the brilliance of Dean Kuntz, how nothing will ever compare to the romance and thrill of seeing “Twilight” in theaters. It festered in him, growing every day until he was able to bring his gift to the masses through podcasts, spewing forth reviews on manga, movies, and books, tearing them apart in vicious diatribes until he was spent.

Our longest show yet! Holy crap let’s not do this again. Anyways, we do a whole lot of ranting about Fire Emblem character pairings this episode. Oh, and we talk about some forum discussions that Andrew worked on. That’s right, the discussion questions are back! Sort of… we only have one guy responding to questions right now, but hey, it’s a start! In the news side of things we talk about the results of Japan and America’s first official mech battle, and a small story about one mans thoughts on an otaku couple during the newest Fate/stay movie. And lastly are the previews, of which we have four more. Joseph has a comedy about a budding relationship between a high school couple, as well as the newest season of foodgasms. Andrew on the other hand talk about marrying a big cow skull dude, and a very interesting story about the latest attempt at a new Bleach/Naruto.
We’re all falling down in this episode because it’s back to previews; looking at what the Fall 2017 season has for us. So far, nothing mind blowing. So let’s talk instead about how Joseph really feels about Aho-girl, how Andrew really feels about New Game!!, and let us not forget to mention Overwatch, Patreon, and baking Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins.
This week on anime pulse we talk about Fire Emblem Heroes, the voice of Erina Nakiri, food poisoning, and planning a visit to Scott Loves Anime. We also review a couple anime before we go into previews next week, with Andrew trying to get us to visit a town in Japan with ‘Sakura Quest’ and Joseph beating a useless male protagonist to death with a sack of rocks in ‘Seisen Cerberus’.
We’re running a week behind now, so if you hear news that is a week old, well, hopefully we’ll eventually be doing live shows where you can listen to us on the day of. Until then, sit back and relax as we talk about giant anime breasts, Overwatch, Fire Emblem Heroes, and Kingsmen: The Golden Circle. We also review a couple anime, one about cute girls doing cute things while playing ping pong and the other about a cute boy and his uncle.
