Welcome to another episode of Anime Pulse, this week brought to you by the empty amphitheater that Ryo apparently decided to record from. Technical difficulties aside, this is the first previews show of the Spring 2016 season. We’ve got IRL updates from both of the hosts, industry news about cats and ideal body types, and then the previews of which there are four in total. We’ll be doing two of these shows this season, and then possibly taking a week off while Ryo recovers from near death via finals.
Intro – Coolest by Customi-Z from Sakamoto desu ga?
Outro – Nakushita Hibi ni Sayonara by SuneoHair from Sakamoto desu ga?

The Lost Village
Greeting as salutations, dear listeners. After a lost episode Blonde and Ryo are back to give you something on the horrifying side of things. Ryo really wishes she didn’t listen to this whole episode while editing because she blocked out everything. God. Why. Turn down the volume and lock all your door because things around to get freaky up in here on After Dark Episode 9.Continue reading After Dark Episode 9: Nobody Expects the Tentacle Inquistion
Hello listners, No we’re not dead, but maybe dying. But before our inevitable return to the grave we bring you another steamy episode of After Dark. We’re here to take you two a whole new world of holes with two titles that offer a variety of feelings.
Look through that peep hole and join us in After Dark Episode 8.
For this weeks show Red and Ryo have become one with their bosses and have begun to exemplify their pessimistic views of the anime industry, or in other words they poke fun at the state of Manga Pulse and its hosts. But before they work hard on trying to get fired, Red and Ryo regale you with their IRL news where they attempt to explain their long absences. Red has a new car, and Ryo is single again. Then it’s onto the Industry News, or lack-there-of as it’s a slow ass past few weeks for anything interesting to talk about. But doing their best Red has a follow-up piece about a Voice Actress facing charges after being found with cocaine, and Ryo informs everyone about the exciting venture of a Final Fantasy 15 anime. And lastly is reviews, where Ryo takes the lead with the feathery Comet Lucifer and Red rounds us out with Absolute Duo.
Intro – Absolute Soul by Konomi Suzuki from Absolute Duo
Outro – Rainbow Road by Nanobii from Rainbow Road (Album)
Comet Lucifer – Netflix
Absolute Duo – Crackers
Did you know that we thrive on requests and suggestions? It’s true. Our last two Popcorn Pulses were entirely inspired by feedback from listeners who like to inflict things on us. That goes for manga as well as movies, as evidenced by Tim’s review this week. What we’re saying is, we take your suggestions when you email them and do our best to get to them as quickly as possible. So feel free to email us with movies or manga you’d like us to analyze.

Even if humanity stopped making films right this second and never made another, there would still almost be too many to watch in a lifetime. That doesn’t mean they’re all quality though. By the time you died, you’d have watched a mountain of garbage recorded by some schmo with a Sony Handycam and two hundred parts ambition to one part talent.
So it’s baffling when one of the best known turds from the nineties, Samurai Cop, received a sequel in the twenty first century. Through the miracle of crowdfunding, the majority of the original cast is reunited under a director who is either worse than the original or a savant at making movies appear bad. Going by his filmography, we believe the answer to be obvious. Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 50: Empire Cop
This episode should really be titled, digression and you. In the best tradition of our show, we begin the first review and wander all over the map in an attempt to not talk about the comics at hand. Which is still rather surprising, considering we don’t generally hate manga. We must simply have the attention span of a goldfish pounding lines all night.
