Warning: I actually talk about my penis in graphic detail this episode so expect a slow download as I'm sure a huge horde of female fans are downloading this episode as you are reading this.
Ok, crap aside we give a whole heap of "Series impressions" of new Anime shows that we've watched, and no, we didn't just watch the "boy stuff." We'll try to be as objective as possible; We promise!
Shootin' The Breeze 0:00 - 27:20
Did I like Singapore? Well, I feel "kindasortareally" indifferent. I think Hong Kong is a much better city overall, but I was glad for the trip.
For the most part we chit chat about a whole heap of stuff, including Alex's morbid fascination with American Idol, Alex praising my review of Cyber City Oedo and how Anime has boomed in Canada since Alex's return.
Alex starts complaining about the fact that most of romising "mature" anime titles of the season have remained untouched by subbers.
Promo: Up A Paddle
I was afraid ol' Kent was missing in action there for a while! Thank goodness, he's back.
Wait a minute Mr Postman! 28:20 - 45:40
All from our regulars, but the comments and questions they bring up are always great. Especially WatcherAngel's little revelation about the single greatest actor in the world, Kevin Sorbo.
News 46:45 - 1:19:34
Hokuto No Ken's Raoh to get Shinto-Buddhist funeral
Even as a Hokuto No Ken fan, this is disturbing to say the least.
Funimation aquires OnePiece
I would like to take this opportunity to toast Funimation for their compassionate treatment of rape victims.
Bandai USA CEO confronted by fans at Sakura Con
Anime News Network's audio clip of the incident is here.
He genuinely sounds dumbfounded by the response. This poor fellow obviously has NO idea.
The now infamous "Swimming Shorts Story"
Not exactly "news" but, hey.
Sarah Brightman's song featured in Pokemon!?
Honestly, what can I say?
Promo: Anime Pulse
Great chaps! They've played my promo numerous times and brought some fine listeners our oay!
Spring 2007 Episode "Impressions" 1:20:40- 2:10:05
Note: I clear my throat rather loudly several times during this, I actually muted it whilst I was clearing it but for some dumbass reason, the recording software still picked it up. Sorry for this disgusting lapse in professionalism.
Click on the title to find out more about each show.
We both loved it, we feel extremely positive about this one. Unusual characters, great action, superb score and Mecha's galore!
Idol Master Xenoglossia
Well....everything we thought it would be. Fantastic background art though. I'm going to check out the second episode, Alex won't touch it.
What else can we say about Claymore that you haven't already heard? So far, the outlook is extremely positive.
Seirei no Moribito
From the team that brought you Ghost In The Shell:SAC, many have anticipated this beautiful looking historical fantasy. Not much to report as it's a slower paced show, but it certainly has promise based on the talent behind it alone.
Darker Than Black
It certainly has potential. It's kind of a cross between Ghost In The Shell & X-men, If that's possible.
The biggest suprise for me, I actually enjoyed it. I was expected a Moe cutsie-pue crapfest but I found the slow paced style of this show appealing. The sudden unexpect supernatural element has me somewhat afraid however.
It's a wrap: 2:10:15 - 2:16:38
Next week, I'll be reviewing the next Hokuto No Ken OVA: Yuria Densetsu and promise a very interesting new "Anime Person Of The Week".
Until then my pretties!
