Episode 699: Spring 2021 Previews #2

This week on Anime Pulse we got giant lizards stomping around, dumping radioactive water into the ocean, and hospital bills are too damn high. Up first Joseph is trying to get some answers as to why his bill for visit to an emergency room is going to send him to another, and Andrew gets hit with some anime swag and gets ready to delve into yet another Monster Hunter game. Then the industry news brings in topics about more fishy thefts, Aniplex being shit, and Mobile Suit Netflix. Lastly the previews have Joseph not-isekai to a super realistic game world where he is the Demon Lord, and Andrew pilots a giant robot with his friends to fight Godzilla.

Popcorn Pulse 148: Black Face

Let’s talk tax evasion instead of movies. You know how any number of actors or musicians have tried to avoid taxes by not paying them? The director of today’s film decided to skip that and just give up his US citizenship. So we have Terry Gilliam’s Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus[2009].

Script 2 Script 23: Disaster Artist

Being fans of MST3K and Rifftrax, we’ve naturally seen The Room. So when Greg Sestero wrote a book about the making of the movie and his friendship to the Latvian revenant known as Tommy Wiseau we listened to the audio book on a drive across the country. Which meant we had no choice but to watch the movie made and based off the book as well.

This episode is a bit different in that we’re not just discussing the differences between a book and an adaptation so much as the differences between the reality presented in the book and that shown in the movie, the Disaster Artist.

Updated to fix previous mistakes.

This week on Anime Pulse we got recycling with the power of a burning finger, being possessed by the ancient spirit of a samurai, and the most cultured talk about fan service in anime ever.

Afterwards there’s news of another strange theft, China gets it’s first new anime since 2007, and horrible women in a terrible anime wear sexy undergarments.

Popcorn Pulse 147: Double Miracle

Let’s dig into the best year to ever have occurred in the history of our lives. At least that’s what we’re going to call it based solely on the films that came out that year. We’re not going for anything most people have heard of though, we’ve got The Miracle Fighters(1982).

Episode 697: Last Crusade or The Rise of Top wo Nerae

This week on Anime Pulse we got card thieves, the most annoying characters in anime, and going topless to fight aliens. Up first IRL news sees Joseph reach Platinum rank in Magic the Gathering: Arena, and Andrew cooked up another amazing meal for his family. Afterwards the news only brings us two whole topics of discussion, as a man steals a million yen worth of trading cards and a plagiarizing anime gets canned. Lately the reviews show us out with Joseph using science to fight magic while falling in love with the enemy, and Andrew becomes a groupie for the pilot of an elite space alien fighting force.

Manga Pulse 441: Regenerated Manga

How many manga can we cram into a single show? Could we do seven, fourteen, a hundred and eighty? Considering how long and rambly we get, it’s doubtful. We’re honestly lucky we get through the two we normally slate for these things. Speaking of two, that’s exactly what we brought in.
