Episode 534: Masamune-kun no Rinne

Gobble gobble, it’s another episode of Anime Pulse. Coming off of Thanksgiving, which isn’t something you should really be thankful for, Joseph brings us news about a new digital card game he is thoroughly enjoying. Andrew on the other hand, who has no such holiday, surprises Joseph with his lack of experience with Cowboy Bebop and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Industry news features a fun bit about a Trap being discovered by his friend, as well as some rather terrible news about the author behind Rurouni Kenshin. As for the reviews, Andrew berates a man’s plot to get revenge on a former love interest and Joseph sighs at the sequel to a Rumiko Takahashi work.

  1. Hey again!
    Thanks for taking the time to respond to my comment on the podcast. After hearing your reasoning I can definitely see where you’re coming from. As a student of graphical arts it makes sense that the unpolished areas of the animation would really stand out to you. I’d still recommend you watch it at some point, because right now it’s well on its way to being my personal anime of the season. There are more not-quite-blending-well liquid effects later on in the show though, fair warning. xD

    I also enjoyed the review of Masamune’s Revenge. I’ve heard generally lukewarm opinions of the show before but this is the first I’ve heard someone cover why it’s so… blah. Also really enjoy your little discussion afterwards about the plot and the anime vs. the manga. I think it would be great to see more discussionals on the show overall. Could be a nice way to mix things up a bit when neither of you feel like making reviews.

    All t he best

    1. Hey man!

      Thanks for hearing me out, was worried that I would come across as a snob. Yeah I am interested in watching a bit more. So-so = 50% and like I said during the Masamune review I usually expect anime to get better as it goes on. So yeah, since you recommend I’ll definitely give it a watch with a review at the end if you’d like. 😉

      That makes me happy to hear, this one was tricky to write down because I had a lot to say.
      Well I’ll see what I can about the discussion thing as we go on, hopefully our future collaborative reviews we plan om doing will be what you’re looking for.

      Thanks as always for tuning in!

  2. Ooh, yes please! A review would be much appreciated! Hopefully this time my recommended anime won’t turn to shit, like with King’s Game. 😛

    Collab reviews sounds great! Glad to hear it’s something that’s coming further down the line. Looking forward to ’em!


    1. Alright then that’s it added to my Hit List then, and I’ve just watched some more. Haha I’m not sure what you mean. Ousama Game is really the greatest anime EVER. In it’s own special way. 😉 😉

      Fantastic, well that’s about two anime so far that we’ll likely collab on so it’s nice to hear that someone’s hyped for them.


  3. Umm, yeah. That clarification of why you found the animation of Land of the Lustrous to be so-so certainly clarifies one thing: I don’t pick apart animation to anything even approaching that microscopic a level. I just think that this show figured out how to make 3D CG look fluid in ways that it hasn’t in recent times.

    1. I did reply to this in the last recording but just in case I fucked it up I’ll also type back here. It could be you don’t analyse at such a microscopic level as you say OR perhaps you are just better are getting immersed in a shows to the point that these distractions aren’t as apparent. I do have trouble really getting absorbed into a show and it can often take till around the half way point for me.

      Oh AB-SO-LU-TL-EY!!! Just look at Beserk O_o”. Whether I have issues with the visuals at times they are not there because of laziness, the studio is at least attempting to do something different which I can appreciate.

      Peace and seasons greetings,
      Chandrew Claus
