This week on Anime Pulse the guys practice social distancing, like they always do, by both being otakus and by recording a podcast while separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Up first IRL news gives us a sneak peek into the life of a New York State resident who still has to work, and Andrew wants to know what anime you just can’t put down. Afterwards the industry news has us being hit with even more COVID-19 cancelations, and the return of Bleach to the anime scene. And finally the reviews close us out with Joseph becoming the Dark Night to battle a thirsty monster girl, and Andrew waddles over to mess up some side jobs. NOOT NOOT!

I feel like Andy basically erased the show topic about anime spin-offs from his brain. Anyhoo, I’m glad that AP has survived through the Healthpocalypse so far.
I know this isn’t VG Pulse, but the crossover chat is unavoidable. What I’m often curious about is how legit companies can counter the need for people to pirate stuff like video games. OK, let’s say I’m a video game corporation- Electronic Farts. My company puts out everything, including visual novels and whatnot. How much of a finished game can I give as a demo before I entice people to not just grab the entire game for free? What if a company gave a 24 hour demo; 24 hours of play time before the game ends. You have the full game on your hard drive, but to continue, you have to pay. Does that sound fair, or do you think people would still want more access to a game before they consider buying?
So let’s turn this into an anime question: What else could the anime industry do to curb pirating? What else can they offer?
Ah, Andy, I see that you haven’t watched the 40+ minute announcement special for Bleach on YouTube. Tite Kubo’s name is actually pronounced like “tight” not “teet” I have finally learned the correct way to say it. I bet most people will still say it wrong.
