The transhumanist space opera where memories have been digitized and your self can be placed into different bodies that also happens to be a terrifying dystopia where poor folks are vulnerable to theft and made to sell their bodies and memories to the rich, an amnesiac sets off on a dangerous interplanetary journey to find themselves.

Getting followers like a religious leader!


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.

One thing I didn’t talk about is the director’s comment that she would’ve been made moe if the series didn’t sell. Her presence would be mediated by sales, which is still scary. The hierarchical structure of man-over-woman is, despite a nice image of Audrey, still in place.

Especially in comparison to the other bad Japanese live-actions I’ve seen. That said, it’s not a masterpiece, more like the first Avengers, a film that is as good as it needed to be.

This episode is a lot more positive and joyful than I thought it would be. It is episode 100, so I decided that I should review something meaningful, so I reviewed Hanazawa Kengo’s first manga, Ressentiment.

This is one of the few manga that I’ve read from start to finish, and re-reading it has been a joy.

Especially now that I have a few more years under my belt, and I understand what satire is.

In this episode, we learn why Scorched Earth tactics violate human rights, but that said all of this is over contested territories between two different systems of coercion. I mean, the romanticism of frontier life is the libidinal economy of colonialism, but whatever. lol. A lot of us dream of a better life and I’m equally as guilty (if we could even say that dreaming is a sin… but our dreams should be bigger than having a wife and kids on our own planet…)

I figured there’s going to be a point where I will want to talk about split-screen in anime again, so I’m using the ‘part’ in the names so that I can do another episode like this if I felt like it.

I really do like how small both Jessica Edwards and Secretary of Defense Truniht are, the enormous stage adds to that overwhelming sense of producing, via imaginative and physical labor, the monolithic idea of the nation-state with no actual referent other than the small people who work with and confront each other.

vlcsnap-2015-04-23-23h17m22s540

This image is also pretty gloomy, because it is the second to last shot of the episode before the credits roll. Yang Wen Li becomes the sort of reluctant hero, not just out of survivors guilt but because the category of hero is part of the state propaganda machine that is used by those in charge to get Yang to do what they want him to do, to either die or to do something heroic to increase their popularity.

A lot of our review is centered on how incomprehensible this show is to people who are not us and how someone can actually become anime-literate enough to listen to our show and understand it. It is also the path towards Nirvana.

For the first half of this show we talk about alll kinds stuff, Godzilla’s racist old dubs, Arion (a show we reviewed loooong ago), Shin Mazinger (and Imagawa in general), later Fullmetal Alchemist and Avatar… it goes on…

We’re really scared of the shipping fanbase and how it engineered Korra.

Today we review a 90s OVA from 1974, Pacific Rim (del Toro).

We love Mecha, you probably love Mecha, this movie is great, we’re a lot more negative than we felt we should be, but we love this movie.

We really wanted this movie to be this,

Summer Podcastravaganza Day 1

June 17, 2013 § 3 Comments

Ok, so we set out to review Evangelion 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, but we ended up talking about Nichijou, Romero’s 1976 vampire film Martin, and Zeta Gundam before we got around to Eva talk.

This is a pretty good question that we never really answered before we started the show.

This episode is why you should hate young men.

8 April 2013: Just talkin’ about what I’ve been looking at for the new Season

April 8, 2013 § 1 Comment

This episode is probably a pretty bad idea since I haven’t even bothered to look at the season’s big-ass picture with all the little descriptions and pictures of shows that are coming out.

I’ll probably get a picture of that on the site soon, but I wanted to go ahead and get something out for today since this is the DAILY Anime Podcast.

The anime I talked about for today were Oreimo, Nyark-San, and a few other things.

Might I add that I STILL LOVE NYARKO-SAN? WITH ALL ITS GUNDAM REFERENCES?

More like, because I love Gundam, I love Narko-san Another Crawling Chaos.

Jojo’s Bizarre Occult Academy

December 17, 2012 § Leave a comment

We were supposed to talk about Occult Academy, but then we started talking about Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure and somewhere in there we talked about some fan fictions I wrote waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day when I was in high school. Those were the days.

I guess it’s the holiday season, and we’re back.

santa is a bitch

I believe this is episode 50, I remember thinking waaaaaaay back in the day that I should make that occasion episode. Like I should talk about something super kick-ass like Giant Robo, but naw, I think getting to padcast at all is good enough. also, yolnt

Sorry for the delay, I couldn’t get a blog post out to say why I was not releasing episodes.

And so, since it has been 13 days since I last released an episode, I did a special episode, also I will be livestreaming this stuff and releasing the episode the morning after I do all dis livestreaming. The only day where this stream, will be Wednesdays and a few events here and there.

Today I just talk about stuff that’s been happening since I last spoke to you guys, then Gundam Unicorn episode 5, Paprika and Giant Robo. There’s some more stuff but it was basically a free for all.
