Episode 554: Anthem of the Imōto

This week on Anime Pulse we get to hear Joseph perform his voice acting as a southern bell for one of our listeners, and Andrew grimaces at a poll for the top most interesting anime that came from light novels. The IRL news is all about how unfair Fire Emblem Heroes has been treating Joseph, and Andrew has plenty of community stuff to cover. Industry news brings us a way to import your waifu in the real world, and a new life sized figurine that will put a $15k size hole in your wallet. And then finally the reviews are here one last time before we head into previews, with Joseph working as an author and Andrew stops talking until he can sing.

  1. I didn’t finish watching A Little Sister’s All You Need, probably because “Little Sister” is in the title. No, I wasn’t offended by it; Andy Chan has watched far, far worse.

    I just saw much shinier anime and forgot all about it. So uh, how is it that you completely forget that your “brother” is a sister? That’s almost as ludicrous as a woman bot knowing that she gave birth to a child. I guess in the world of imouto, anything’s possible!

  2. I just noticed this show is filed under “After Dark”. XD Whoops. Or is the high Imoutou quotient causing you to make freudian slips? lol

  3. I need to make a correction. I got the two Bethesda divisions mixed up. The original, core company is Bethesda Game Studios, the developer behind the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series. Their parent company is Bethesda Softworks, which is the publisher that also owns other studios like id Software (Doom) and Arkane Studios (Dishonored, Prey). And Bethesda Softworks is now a subsidiary of Zenimax, and it runs Elder Scrolls Online. So while the Dishonored franchise is under the same publishing house as Elder Scrolls and Fallout, they’re from different studios.

  4. OMG, someone else remembers Mushishi! 10 points to Joseph. 😀 Now I’m disappointed I didn’t mention it myself. I’ve been watching bits of it again in the last few months – it was a surefire way to calm down my son (he’s just over a year old now) when he’d have a middle-of-the-night crying fit. The music and animation was enough to interest and distract him, but ambient and calm enough not to overstimulate him. And because I really like the series I didn’t at all mind watching it with him.

    OMG also Paranoia Agent! 10 more points to Joseph. Idk if it’s underrated – it did get shown on Adult Swim, didn’t it? – but it’s old enough to have faded from memory a bit, and since Satoshi Kon is no longer with us – and therefore not producing new work – it’s less likely that people will discover it. It’s still got to be on a top ten list of psychological thrillers, though… hasn’t it? ::hopeful but slightly worried::
