This is a crazy yokai anime (which I really like) that plays into the yokai Japanese nationalist genre through it’s narrative and character development and I absolutely love this it through it’s inconsistencies. With a middle school protagonist. It’s got a lot of anime strikes against it but check it out lmao.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes 19: Yang’s Fleet Moves Out

July 1, 2017 § 1 Comment

Hello, here I discuss episode 19, an Alliance episode where Yang responds to Reinhardt’s operation to implant a bunch of imperial agents who want to disrupt the Free Planet Alliance. It’s pretty cool to see the FPA fall apart and Yang try to salvage the situation.

Andy returns with a freshly slain undergraduate degree and the smell of a graduate degree on the tip of his nose, and we’ve decided to turn our attention back to the days and decisions that led us towards our degree paths and how they related to anime and anime podcasts.

Despite what was said on the show, Jefferson is not a furry.

I haven’t done a First Impressions episode in a while, also I haven’t watched a full series since Akame Ga Kill, so here we go.

This is Dororo

Legend of the Galactic Heroes episode 18: The Lippstadt Conspiracy

There’s a lot of politicking in this episode. I suppose that’s not unique to this one!
Ironically I imagine Bernie Sanders would probably love this show, since it resonates with his whole “young, capable people being proactive in politics” appeal.

Naruto Shippuden: Ninshu’s Cruel Optimism

I saw the latest two episodes of Naruto and really wanted to talk about Hagoromo, the Sage of the Six Paths and what I thought about his story and the story of Ninja-kind.

In season 1, the first adventure that Naruto goes on is protecting a bridge builder, who wants to build a bridge to allow his town to have economic independence from a greedy mafia-type – which, in many ways, mirrors the story of Hagoromo and the thief in the recent episodes of Naruto.
