Episode 33: Let Them Eat Cake

This week on the A to Z Anime Podcast…

Zack starts with News about Tekkaman Blade and VR. Air takes over (30:31) with impressions of last week’s new releases (All-Rounder Meguru, Giant Killing, Platinum End, Welcome to the Ballroom, and One Punch Man) and an update of her Rurouni Kenshin rewatch.

Then it’s time for a special edition of New Release Tuesday–Gay Tuesday! (42:20)

**Air’s Note: both of these volumes were read after the podcast was recorded. They were both really great and I recommend them. Hana & Hina especially exceeded my expectations.**

How about those Winter Simulcasts? (45:49) We cover Nanabaka, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, Naruto Shippuden, Interviews with Monster Girls, Saga of Tanya the Evil, Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju, Blue Exorcist, All Out!!, Onihei, Iron-Blooded Orphans, elDLIVE, Gintama, Tiger Mask W, ACCA, and Ancient Magus’ Bride.

We finish up with this week’s Shonen Jump! (1:48:49)

Thanks for listening and we hope to see you next week!

Episode 28: I Just Want to Chew on Someone

This week on the A to Z Anime Podcast…

We get right into it with a HUGE New Release Tuesday:







Then we cover the latest Winter Simulcasts: All Out!! (sporty), Super Lovers (gay), Masamune-kun’s Revenge (dropped), Blue Exorcist, Saga of Tanya the Evil (evil), Show Genroku Rakugo Shinju (omgwhatcanyouevensayitisamazing), Interviews with Monster Girls (who knew foot sweat was so endearing), ACCA (boys bond over toast), Gabriel Dropout (dropped), Hand Shakers (we dared Zack to love it), Tiger Mask W (oh my god!), Onihei (manly), Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid (controversial translation choices!), Naruto (this latest filler is actually pretty good), Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans (*tears*), elDlive (it was all a misunderstanding), Gintama (GINTAMA), Nanbaka, Marginal #4 (marginal), and Dragon Ball Super (Goku’s an idiot).

We round things out with this week’s Shonen Jump and the new Jump Start: We Never Learn!

And seriously, we never learn–we start with Jump and get totally off topic and end up talking about how great Black Lagoon is.

Episode 23: Fall Simulcast Wrap-Up

Then it’s time for catching up on a couple weeks of Shonen JUMP (2:41:45). And by “catching up on Shonen JUMP” we mean get distracted after My Hero Academia and the Ruroni Kenshin side story and start talking about Gintama/the brilliance of Hideaki Sorachi and HunterxHunter/the cunning of Yoshihiro Togashi.
