There was a period in the eighties and nineties where if you wanted to make a movie featuring martial arts, you did so by invoking something from the “far east”. Hence Samurai Cop(1991). It features some regular B movie actors, a bunch of unknowns and hilarious dialogue. And as there was a sequel done last year, we’ll be doing that in our next Popcorn Pulse.

Like a glacier, we’re moving along with general site repairs. And just like a glacier, it’s nearly impossible to see the movement if you’re checking in every hour.

Still no live show? What the heck man! This isn’t what I pay no money for! Sheesh, what a lazy bunch of bums. That’s right, it’s another week and another episode of Anime Pulse coming right at ya. Like a bad joke, it just flies right over your head because you just don’t get it. Speaking of which, Tokyo Ghoul Root A. Now there’s a joke of an anime, and boy howdy does Ryo have some words to say about it. Red chimes in too on their joint review of the season, but in the end the two hosts have somewhat different opinions on its final rating. Aside from the review, we got news about France banning Doraemon and a “How to Draw Manga” book that’s all about the panties. But before any of that happens, Ryo and Red fill you in on what’s been going down in their lives.
Intro – Munō by österreich from Tokyo Ghoul Root A
Outro – REASON by Yuzu from Hunter x Hunter 2011

I hope you’ve brought your medical facial masks, because Red and Ryo are both your patients for this weeks show. That’s right, your hosts are not feeling quite up-to-par as both of them are suffering from one type of illness or another; the show much go on though! As such, IRL news is full of how sick both Red and Ryo are; Ryo including the only bit of happy news which covered a drawing of hers getting some press. Afterwards Red talks about how Kirino from Oreimo is representing voters in Japan, and Ryo lists off the most popular cat names in Japan. And last but not least are reviews where Red covers a bad vampire anime, and Ryo attempts to keep herself entertained with a short anime about distraction.

Contrary to popular belief, we don’t listen and have strong feelings about all current or recent musical acts in existence. As such, the only time we’d ever heard Selena Gomez was in tandem to Justin Bieber. Then we decided to watch Getaway.
Someone involved in this movie decided that Selena, who has no name, screech like a macaw with its leg caught in a car door at Ethan Hawke for twenty minutes. This is in spite of the fact she learns right away that he’s just a pawn. But at least all the car crashes are practical effects and we get to see Jon Voight disgustingly eat olives.
