Episode 538: Gyo to Akashic Records

Ho ho ho, just in time for Christmas it’s an episode of Anime Pulse! This week Joseph talks about spending money on his digital waifu, and Andrew is back in Scotland visiting family. Then in industry news we got topics like the most appealing anime characters of 2017, and William Shatner coming out as a fan of the anime. Finally are reviews with Andrew regaling us with a lyrical review of stinky fish, and Joseph brushing over a mediocre anime about an annoying tsundere and a useless princess.

  1. Jamie Lee Curtis actually dressed up at a con as a Street Fighter character (Vega, so she could hide her identity; her as Cammy would attract WAY too much attention) so she’s done more to show off as a fan than I have done.

    I don’t know if I believe that Shatner’s a Love Live fan. It’s not impossible, but I guess it’s such a left field admission that I think someone he hired manages his account.

  2. Normally I try to suppress my inner language nazi, but that poll reading had too many errors for me to pass over. *Ahem*
    *Made in Abyss, not Made in the Abyss
    *Phosphophyllite (Phos-pho-phy-llite) not Philosophylife
    *Elias Ainsworth, not Ellinas Ainsworth
    *Ancient Magus Bride, not Ancient Magnus Bride
    *Shoto Todoroki, not Shoto Torodoki
    *Hozuki’s Coolheadedness, not Hozuki’s Coolheadness

    That’s it, I’m my urge to correct has been sated.
    Anyway, Andrew’s reaction to the top entry was amazing. From “Yeah, mhm” to a table-smashing rant. Just wonderful.

    So on the topic of Gyo, I’m *really* hoping the Junji Ito collection show that’s airing this season will do his stories justice. The first episode was kinda eh, but I’m holding out hopes. I’m mostly convinced they’re unadaptable, since a lot of his horror comes from the gritty art and clever use of page layout and using page turning to dramatically reveal the more gruesome scenes.

    Anyway, enjoyable show as per usual!


  3. Thank you very much, makes the time writing it feel worthwhile. *shivers* Well as long as something good comes out of that pain it’s something I guess?
