0:00: Helen and Justin talk about Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, which is not an anime. Though it’s very fun. We at least talk about that aspect while learning that Helen doesn’t watch 3D films because glasses on glasses is bad. Then Helen talks about going to Free Comic Book the past weekend. Justin then proceeds to gush about your name to an extent.
14:20: Code Geass is coming back!…and Justin and Helen aren’t so sure how to feel about it after seeing this trailer. And the state of Lelouch in the sequel. This conversation also takes us back to our high school days since Code Geass aired on Western TV in 2007.
21:02: Discotek announced they’ve licensed five titles, one of which was Marmalade Boy.
24:25: Amazon is offering the ability to watch anime without an internet connection. We talk about the significance of that, especially since Crunchyroll plans on offering this later in the year. Now whether Amazon’s video on the go is good, you’ll have to let us know…
29:50: We talk about J-Novel Club’s announcement, which announced two LNs: If It’s For My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord and Invaders of The Rokujouma!?
35:56: Cross Infinite World announced they’ve licensed Akaoni, I Became The Secretary of a Hero, and Yusen Ruten.
38:05: Odd news of the day — somehow involves a jockey and a centaur. Manga can do everything if you didn’t know!
40:50: An article by Tim Rattray got Justin and Helen to discuss the entertainment media we consume, or specifically, how there’s an abundance of it (especially it seems nowadays) and how we deal with it.
46:30: Main discussion is on ACCA, which is streaming on Crunchyroll and the manga has been licensed by Yen Press for release possibly later this year. We do an overview of the plot, then comment on some of the best things about the anime, and a bit of the things the anime did poorly. Also we get into a discussion involving how important the bread is. And some sweets.
A brand new anime service has appeared since we last recorded! We discuss that, Amazon making love to...
From Cowboy Bebop being back in the news again to anime convention news, Helen and Justin have a lot...
Justin and Helen didn't set out to give all of these fiery takes when we did the podcast, but that's...
Alcina joins in this week's podcast to talk about what she's been up to and why she saw your name twice....
No, the creators of Code Geass never literally said that Lelouch was dead. He did get killed, but that doesn’t conflict with arguing the guy survived after the fact. I am not going to get into all of the details because it’s almost pointless to split hairs about that now. By the way, the title is still Lelouch of the Resurrection, so maybe his physical death is not as much of a lie as you might think. And yeah…I wasn’t that young when Code Geass first aired, so I guess that makes me a little older than both of you. Then again, I still liked it and didn’t feel the series was that super complicated or even particularly nonsensical. Just a show that definitely liked to go melodramatic and over-the-top (although there is some stuff they could have easily been cut out, I’d admit). The trailer for the sequel is just a short teaser for something that is not even going to be airing in 2017, so the fact the video is largely uninformative seems logical at this point. Just telling people there is a sequel being planned is all it needed to accomplish.
Right, like I’ve seen a number of people super excited about this. I’m sure the teaser got people ready already. I just hope it’s actually good when it does come out though. And hey, sometimes melodrama in anime can be good! Just depends I think.
