We’re finally back to doing live shows folks! So If you’ve ever wanted to participate in the production of Anime Pulse, now is the time to sign up to be a Patreon! That said, the first live show in years goes off without a hitch. Joseph fills us in on his reason for taking off from work for the first time in 10 months, and Andrew says “fuck life” and talks about show comments and forum replies. Then they cover some interesting news about a Virtual Youtuber becoming an Japanese Ambassador, and the fallout of the Author behind Rurouni Kenshin’s child porn arrest. And finally are the reviews with Joseph sweeping up what is left of Rumiko Takahashi, and Andrew warns you to not get too attached to anyone in a zodiac war.

  1. Andrew (I think I shall call you Andy now. “Andy & Joey’s Anime Variety Hour” Hmm…) Anyway, Andy, Chicken is not just weilding a rake she’s using a cockscomb. Ehh, ehh? Get it!

    I liked your Junni Taisen review. It was very burpy, and probably a bit too inebriated, but the prose was a little less purple, more formal and conversational.

    Hey, if you want more live listeners, maybe we need to leverage Andy’s connections. How many times per week do you pimp the podcast? Do you tell all your family on Facebook about it?

    Rumiko Takahashi is shockingly not married! I thought she was too, guys. I don’t know why I just assumed that. I think it’s because a) she made shiploads of money off of romcoms and b) since she’s in her 50s, I assumed she was into traditions like marriage.

    Why’s she single? Maybe she’s going against the grain. Maybe she couldn’t find a man who would fall to the ground when she yelled “Sit boy!” Or maybe she has a “long time female friend.” I don’t really know her dating history. Maybe she’s an old virgin and a cat lady, and has never dated.

    The theory I’m going with is that she’s into black guys, because one picture of her has her wearing a Def Jam sweater. Rumiko X LL Cool J, for sure!

    Why do people like Kamfer? Andy, Andy. Andy! If you search your feelings, you know the answer


    1. Sure Andy’s fine.

      I do ask this in the next one but what do you mean by purple? Also isn’t formal an oxymoron with conversational?

      Can’t really help with connections. The people closest to me know but most wouldn’t be interested. I tend to fare better at making friends with people who aren’t into anime. It’s one of the reasons I joined this community to begin with.

      Yeah I’m sure THAT helps…. lol

      1. “Purple prose” means language that’s excessively fancy for the sake of being fancy. Can’t say I’ve noticed any truly purple prose from your end, but hey.

        Also, Chicken best girl? Fool, Tiger is best girl. Fite me! Drunkard in tiger bikini beats sociopath in feather boa. Let the Juuni Taisen: Waifu Wars begin!

        1. Aaa. Never heard that term before. It may seem that way however unintentional, I’ve never really tried writing for entertainment until I became co-host. So it’s probably left over from my years of writing academically. It’s a long road ahead…

          Nah man naaaaaah, Tiger’s only interesting when she’s all drunk and stuff. In order to be best girl she’d have to fun to watch both ways. 😉


  2. Ack…this episode is reaching a dangerous Imouto Quotient level…

    Blergh…(Content Warning Blood. Lots of it)

    The fanservice in Kampfer did not make up for the stupidity of the protagonist. I still would not go back to it. Ever!
