  1. Seriously? Just this morning, I said to myself, “Batou doesn’t seem to be into AP at all anymore. I wonder if he’ll leave the show?” I returned home to find this announcement. Creepy foresight, or did I hear this somewhere else before now?

    I won’t lie and say I was ever a big fan of Batou, but he’s been with the show for 230 episodes and has been there since the beginning. That’s quite admirable.

    See ya’ later, Batou. Good luck with whatever you go on to do.

  2. I am defiantly going to miss Batou’s humor and random comments on the show. And the choice title choice is hilarious. 🙂 Love for Douglas Adams.


  3. I understand Batou taking a break. If some one does not take a break from something, then they go nuts and would never want to do that again.

    But i will mis batou. He kept Ichigo inline. No one else could do that.

  4. I’m a relatively new listener (I started listening just over a year ago) and the mixture of Batou and Ichigo is what got me to keep listening. You are awesome Batou, and I know everyone has burnouts every now and then so take it easy now, but please do come back later. The show will never be the same without you Batou. Thanks a lot.

  5. This makes me really sad to hear. I’ve been to busy to sit down and listen to the show and when I get time the show ends. Batou is awesome and so f-ing funny.
    Good luck with whatever the future brings Batou. Thank you for making the boring stuff funny and making the awesome stuff more awesome.

  6. Batou you will be missed. I do hope you come back. if nothing more the just drop in to one of the shows to just surprise us with a guest host type thing that would be cool. Well I wish you the best and hope every thing works out in whatever you do.

  7. So what now? Solo Ichigo episodes? I feel like cutting my self now. Bad Times, Bad Times..

    (╬ ಠ益ಠ)

  8. I have been a fan of Ichigo and Batou since day one of listening to this awesome podcast and I can understand the sitch. Ichigo, Im not going anywhere, my friend, but Batou…you get yourself together, take a break, find Batou and know when you come back, we will be waiting with open ears and hearts. You will be missed my friend. Dont forget us because we will never forget you….

    We need more

  9. to be honest i felt the show was slowing down when Chigo and Kaitar left (back in the day, Gorō!!!!!)

    but i was like “hey there’s always Batou and the occasional Tim and Weltall.” (no offence Ichigo but you play off of others better rather than trying to be funny by yourself)

    so with that said my i also bid animepulse a farewell, as a weekly listener, i’ll tune in to check out what Ichigo is up to every one in a while.

  10. Thanks Batou for all the hard work. It’s very sad to see you go. Good luck on your future endeavors.

    Ichigo, don’t listen to all the downers. You’re doing a great job and I enjoy what you bring to the show. Keep up the great work!

  11. This saddens me greatly. 🙁 <- See? Sad face. Batou, you are such a crazy and funny guy and it's sad that we aren't going to hear you anymore. Come back soon, please!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  12. I, as a relatively new listener to your show, so I may not know the history of it,but I really suggest ichigo that you should recruit 1 or 2 recurring host(s) to you show to stop this great show from stagnation. some of us really need a every week anime podcast,and you guys are our only choice right now.

    that reminds me some times i have a strong feeling that you guys were tired about recording this show every week, but unlike other podcasts show, you hold a robust commitment to your subscriber.Behave of all the listeners, I admire that.But truth be told, the quality of this show is in a slump right now.But I know it is not about lack of consistency,its about tiredness.

    so ichigo, enjoy this Golden Week, give your self a break, and I besiege you to think about our little podcast’s future.Because lonely host NEVER work well in podcast.

  13. I also agree with the above comments. The show won’t be the same without Batou. He was the funnyman of the show, While Ichigo is the serious one (with all the weird puns and jokes). I also think the quality of the show has gone down since Ichigo went to Japan actually, but I still listen though, because the show has its good times and it is interesting to see how Ichigo lives in Japan.

    Hopefully, Ichigo will get a new
    “temp” partner soon or maybe have a guest reviewer via skype, or better yet an email segment? I’m sure Ichigo will figure something out. Good Luck Batou, and I hope you come back soon.

  14. I don’t listen to the show anymore, but while browsing the forums I saw what pope said in the forums and thought “really?!?”

    It’s sad but it was only a matter of time before you moved on too…

    Good Luck in the future, you’re an amazing person and I know you’ll succeed in what you choose to do.

    and good luck on your own Ichigo!

  15. I haven’t listened in a long while, but when my sister told me I thought I’d come and wish you well. Best of Luck in all your future ventures!

  16. I can’t imaging even for a minute, that i will never hear Batou at AP anymore. It makes me so depressed. Batou, please, come back sometime, or, really, start your own political podcast, I’m sure, it would be awesome )
    Anyway, good luck, man!

  17. I can’t believe that this is really happening… Please let it only be a break as opposed to leaving us for ever… T__T 🙁

  18. Oh man, this is like the Batou and Ichigo show to me, it’s only really good in combination. You guys really complement each other.
