Guess who got behind on her podcast editing HAHAHAHAHAHA *cries* yeah I’m really behind.

On the plus side, this was a pretty good episode, where we discussed a lot of stuff and not just the current simulcasts, including some shoujo manga, the Sword Art Online Vita and PS4 games, older anime like Death Parade and Ristorante Paradiso, and so on and so forth. We also learn that Evangelion was Lifesong’s Gateway anime, and there’s something more than a little disturbing about that. Like, everybody else got into anime with Sailor Moon or DBZ or something normal like that, and Lifesong watches Shinji slowly turn into a vegetable from trauma, but then somehow thinks “hmm, this is a pleasant art form that I now plan to engage with at some length.”

In other news, I would know how intense Izetta: The Last Witch  had gotten if I hadn’t dropped it, Magical Girl Raising Project kills more magical girls before 9 AM than most people do all day, and we may be the only people on earth concerned about the animation quality in Yuri on Ice!!! and not just dissolving into a puddle of mush over Victor and Yuri. Oh, and we want actual Christians to give us their take on Drifters Jesus, since he’s a lot like real Jesus when you get right down to it.

  1. Amusingly I picked up RahXephon on DVD along with some other things when it was reasonably-priced on Amazon.

    Found out that a whole lot of bootleggers were abusing the Amazon 3rd party marketplace at that time.

    But hey! Cheap anime.

    Also amusingly, while I recognize RahXephon as an overt NGE coattail-rider, in the end I kinda liked it more.

    Also, Toradora rules.

  2. Happy New Year everyone!

    I definitely will have to take LB’s recommendation on Flag. Sounds interesting even if just for its unique perspective.

    Also I can’t think of anyone who hates Toradora, maybe some reviewer on MAL just to be spiteful.
