Manga Pulse 478: 100 Deaths

Like a little white rabbit, we’re late. But that’s just because we prefer it raw rather than wrapped. Caseless bratwurst is the tastiest and don’t let the haters tell you differently. There is a slight chance of food poisoning though. Especially if the cart you’re buying from is currently being raided by the FDA. Can’t beat the “going out of business because of the raid” deals though.

Popcorn Pulse 182: Purple Hook

If you’ve had a subscription streaming service you’ve probably been advertised an original movie or two. And if you’ve been remotely curious, or drunk enough, you’ve tried watching one of these. Especially if the social media hype has gotten to you. Then you watched it and promptly forgot about it. Which is how Tim and Weltall became probably the last two people in the world to bother watching a Netflix original movie that came out months ago.

Up first Joseph has been putting up with cats, organizing shelves, and running a monster girl brothel. Meanwhile Andrew hasn’t been doing much, so we skip right into the community stuff to talk about biscuit hammer and what anime has pushed us to pursue.
