Episode 6: The Final Chapter of Bleach

There was a lot to cover this week!

Zack started out with news (1:34) talking about Soul Hunter and Reborn. Then he got into Sea Prince and the Fire Child (4:02) which then led to a discussion about Unico (6:40). Somehow talking about Active Raid (7:25) ended up being about Kurosawa films (11:10).

Air’s news was about her obsession with Arakawa Under the Bridge (15:26) and then shows on the horizon: ACCA, Drifters, and Yuri on Ice (16:27).

It’s just a little past the middle of the Summer Simulcast Season and Air had a lot to say (26:20). We cover:

Zack introduces a new format/concept for his Lesser Known Classics segment (1:27:49). He presents a group of titles he refers to as “pleasant surprises” listed in the order we will watch (and talk about them). Next week is: LILY C.A.T.!

Future weeks are: Roujin Z, A Wind Named Amnesia, They Were Eleven, Giant Gorg, and finally Shura no Toki.

It’s a short New Release Tuesday (1:40:11)

Then it’s the big one: this week’s Shonen JUMP. We start out with Love Rush (1:41:11) then One Piece (1:45:12), Toriko (1:47:20), Food Wars (1:51:30), Black Clover (1:52:39), World Trigger (1:57:15), Promised Neverland (1:59:00), My Hero Academia (2:04:43) and finally…THE FINAL CHAPTER OF BLEACH (2:14:10).

We couldn’t resist talking about the Togashi/Kishimoto interview (2:30:55) and we wrap things up with a brief discussion of Air’s superpower (2:51:29).

Episode 5: No JUMP This Week So It’s a Free-for-All

We talk about the latest news and what we’ve been up to (:43). Zack’s started playing No Man’s Sky in addition to Overwatch and wants people to get behind his shield (find him on Playstation at SuperUunnko). He has actually been doing some anime watching (Soul Hunter) and other watching (Cadillacs and Dinosaurs). Then Air fills us in on Kodansha’s rescue of Pumpkin Scissors (24:08), the return of Iron-Blooded Orphans (30:27) and tries to talk about the Fall anime Kiss Him, Not Me! but instead ends up talking about fujoshi and Kuroko’s Basketball (33:00).

There was no JUMP this week but Air checked out the free chapter of a new series Astra Lost in Space (53:08). This somehow devolves into talking about Pu, Air’s cat.pu.JPG

During the Mailbag Segment (1:00:00) we discuss listener tanukiballs’s comment about z vs zed (and then vs zeto). Somehow this leads us to our most un-pc podcast ever.

Air debuts her new segment Voice Actor Corner! (1:07:44) Thanks to fujinsei.com for the post about Hiroshi Kamiya. This segues into a discovery about Arakawa Under the Bridge.

After a(nother) distraction about KuroBas and then Naruto, Air presents New Release Tuesday (1:23:38).

Again, we get off-topic and start talking about The Boy and The Beast (1:36:47), The Wind Rises, and the dreaded F-word. Zack just can’t let it go.

Zack presents Zack’s Lesser-Known Classics. (1:46:00) Don’t ask how this ended up as a discussion about the Fraggles on crack.

We were supposed to wrap up but instead got distracted talking about Gurren Lagann, voice casting, and live action. (2:14:06) How did we end up on Cowboy Bebop and Evangelion? And drag queens?!
