Episode 433: The Daily Lives of a Manga Shop's Employees

What a show, what a SHOW! I tell ya folks, if you’ve ever wanted to hear an angry Red then prepare yourselves because you’re about to. TC and Red jump right into news from the past week, talking about the successful Clannad Kickstarter, million dollar mechs you can ride around in, and then Red spikes his audio as he pummels BBC Radio for their ridiculous special on Japan’s manga and anime culture. Be warned, Red yells and swears like you’ve never heard before, so hide all the children and cover your ears; it’s a doozy… Poor Red. Then to chill down, TC invites Red back with the Discussion Thread that was promised the week before: What are 3 of your top favorite anime EDs? And finally, TC and Red do a joint review on the slice-of-life comedyDenki-gai no Honya-san. If you happen to see a tall, devilishly handsome, and angry drunk stumbling about, please send him home, that’s probably Red. Next week starts previews, so look forward to that!

  1. The Inuyasha anime series was completed when the final chapters were animated (Inuyasha: The Final Act) and aired from late 2009 to early 2010.

  2. Red, most of your rant was a strawman attack. Nobody was suggesting the banning of ALL manga and anime. You read this on the show, even: “Manga and anime can be about almost anything, and SOME can be confronting” [emphasis added].

    I enjoyed the rest of the show. Thanks for being the voice of reason, TC.

  3. @a listener: Yes, the website does say that, but they mean to have it all banned to avoid the potential for lolicon. Which was a point we brought up, that BBC wants to paint all manga and anime with the same brush.

  4. My Dad also gave me the intro beer sip. It led me in a different direction than it did Red.

    For Japanese Spider-man’s trusty mecha, I think its “lep-erd-don” not “leo-pard-on” no, red, you were not the one who mispronounced.
