Manga Pulse 508: Hot Rock

We’re really going to shake things up today. We have a manga. But wait, there’s more! Manga that is. Ok, you caught us. We’re not really breaking the mold here. We’re being reliable. The kind of reviewers you can count on to deliver quality content. Or at least content that is delivered. We’re kind of dissembling here because this week’s bit isn’t all fleshed out and we had to get something down for the episode description.

Popcorn Pulse 214: Cube-age

Wait, is that a box? What’s in the box? No, really, what’s in the box? You’d be forgiven for thinking this means we’re talking about a well known and referenced nineties movie. We are talking about a movie that was part of the “have to watch” if you were slightly into film in that era though. Featuring a no-star Canadian cast that can’t help but beg for a box of Timbits and subpar coffee with every meaningful glance. Which can only mean the box we referenced prior has to be part of Cube(1997).

Episode 839: Winter 2024 Previews #2

This week on Anime Pulse we got the abolishment of antiquated technology, telling people to die kills them, and a very small community section. Up first Joseph doesn’t have much to say about anything so he passes on his IRL news to Andrew, who has forgotten to post a community question right up until the last handful of hours before the show. Then in the industry news the lawyer for the KyoAni arsonist is attempting to appeal his death sentence, and examples of just how long the translation game has been politicized. And lastly in the previews Joseph becomes the buffest healer who can kill anyone just by telling them to die, and Andrew rolls into town with a coffin on his back and an android partner with long fangs to kill artificial humans.

Manga Pulse 507: Brave Knight

You know those cooking shows where they bring on the absolute worst people? Like, they find someone who was born without a sense of taste because they were raised on a steady diet of pizza rolls and hot cheetos. Then they give them a kitchen stocked full of ingredients and let them loose. Neither do we but we’d like to see it happen. Especially if they were forced to try and remake something akin to their favorite food. Luckily we have a couple of manga to make up for the lack of what could be on TV.

Popcorn Pulse 213: Dekotora

Two guys and ten movies. No, it’s not us talking yet more James Bond. Though that will be coming. We’ve got something a little special for everyone. By that we mean we’re doing a movie that wasn’t in either of our wheelhouse and probably hasn’t been covered by a whole host of people before. We have Truck Rascals(1975).
