Anime Pacific Episode 35: Nipple Slicing

Download episode 35 here.



Lovely title, don't you think?

(Very occasionally, you might here an echo. Sorry!)


Shootin' The Breeze


We discuss the little poll that we're running and our findings. Anime News isn't that popular, it seems!

Alex also unveils his rage that he had bottled over the week. Most of the rage in this case is pertaining to the overly high age of consent in Canada the fact that I was playing music during his Moonlight Mile review.

We also discuss our mini "promo war". I had the painful task of cutting down everything to 60 seconds, but Alex wouldn't stand for it.

We discuss the article about the prefecture with the "Ugliest Women".

Alex then discusses his (Japanese) wife's reaction to Kelly Osbourne's "Turning Japanese" reality show.



We also talk about the right wing nationalist movement in Japan, which is rather distressing to say the least.



We also discuss a few great items mentioned at Pink Tentacle.

The Balimese style cleaning droid.



Motion Portrait. (Uncanny valley, anyone?)



Alex takes a moment to pleasure himself by hearing the sound of his own voice.
He mentions this book, and this book.

News

Legend of the Galactic Homos Heroes special edition box set.

For the low, low price of $2300 US dollars. We're guessing it comes with a free starship.


New "You're Under Arrest" TV Series!


Still a behemoth, it seems. Will it live up to the "You're Under Arrest" name?

Mail

Call a proctologist! Alex just went through three males.

We get e-mails from beloved regulars Watcher-Angel and Monolith and an a first time e-mailer, Letseatcake, gives us a delightful e-mail.

We also have a mini tales from Asia in between the mail where we talk about our former boss, Scott's voice acting gig.

Alex takes a moment to discuss his love for Boris Johnson.



Alex also demands you check out, "Are We Rome?"

Review: Koroshia-1 (Ichi The Killer Manga)

Our first Manga Review!

If you have the stomach for it, get it here.

Hideo Yamamoto's masterpiece. Here's a picture of the diety in question.



Koroshiya-1, defies description, or even a completely coherent review. Banned in several prefectures across Japan and later adapted into (inferior) two live action films, and a relatively successful prequel anime OVA.

Koroshiya-1 does not succeed because of it's shock value, it succeeds because of the sheer brazen approach and complete audacity of it's story-telling.

Ichi, is the ultimate sadist. A rather pathetic child-like character with a rape fetish who becomes a crybaby killer when manipulated into thinking that the people he is killing are his high school bullies who raped a girl who tried to stand up for him in front of his very eyes. The repressed sexual feelings from that incident, on top of the rage Ichi carries inside from being bullied results in Ichi going into a trance like killing state which ends once he ejaculates. Who on earth would dare to write about his besides Hideo Yamamoto?



Koroshiya-1 also features one of the most memorable villains in the history of anime or manga; Kakihara. The ultimate Masochist.





The "Twins", the most vile, misogynistic characters put to paper.



Both the Manga and it's central character are extremely well written; It is not simply a shock manga, much like Miike's live adaptation was. However, this is absolutely not for the faint of heart. I cannot stress that enough!

It's a wrap!

Next week, I'll be back in Hong Kong and less echoes. Oh, and another tales from Asia. Till then my pretties!

Posted in the future! I say this because at the time of posting this comment it's 2:30PM August 13. Giving it a listen now! Read the show notes seems like a good one as always!

Bo said...

When i got back from vacation. I imediatly listened to the six new episodes. Then in the few days that followed, listened to the first 20. Wich i hadnt listened to before.
Ive now been sitting here for over a week waiting for the newest episode. I almost thought i was gonna die... or maybe not. But i am quite addicted.

I must admit that i have never been much of a podcast person.
I did listen to some animeworldorder before. But that was mostly because they had long reviews on the first parts of the jojo manga. But it just didnt feel right listening to it.
This show however. Its so personal.
And except for all the mecha stuff, you only talk about stuff that im interested in.
Not that i disslike mecha, i just havnt watched much of it.

Also, i feel i should mention, that dane is basicaly me. I agree with everything he says.


Oh, and i have nothing to talk about so i should end this now.

I hope i dont have to wait as long for the next episod ;)

Root Beer King said...

Woah Dane, I hate to say this, but did you fall asleep while editing the show? Cause after the 1 hour and 16 m ins mark the editing is quite bad, lots of echoing where I hear Alex, then a very noticable pause, and finally I hear Alex say the same thing again but on his recording. Still a great show, but the edited pauses and such I just mentioned make it kind of sloppy sounding.

Root Beer King said...

Oh yes! And ZombieToaster, join the club haha.

While I'm at it making this comment, Dane have you been watching anymore Gurren Lagann? Anime News Network says it's going to be 26 eps long, if that's true the awesomeness that is that show will soon be over!(6 more weeks)

Do you plan to review it? I'd love to hear your thoughts on what happens later in the show, it's been getting super special awesome as of late what with the stuff that changes in ep 17(I think that's when it happened, yeah cause 16 was the summery show). Also everytime they mention a certain character I get choked up...

God that show is just too good... What other Gainax greatness have I been missing out on?!

Root Beer King said...

Haha, I hate to keep posting but I just read on wikipedia that the show is ending at 24 eps...So 4 more weeks of eps... And also I never knew Gainax did the Oruchuban Ebichu anime... Haha I loved that show. I seem to like alot of Gainax works... at least the ones I've seen(Oruchuban Ebichu, FLCL, Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, and Gurren Lagann).

Alex said...

Well, we use to mute one of Dane's headphones to stop the echo, but that didn't work all that well for some reason.

Before recording the show, we decided that Dane would just hit mute on his mic whenever I spoke. However, it appears he forgot to do it toward the end of our recording session.

hmmmm I am not sure how much of the show he listens to before pushing it out the door actually. We record in segments. He pastes them together inserting commercials between the segments. So he may have just listened to the first segment, without noticed any problems then pasted the rest together, since we were a bit late with the show.

Dane Scaysbrook said...

Howdy there Zombietoaster, glad you posted! For those that don't know, Zombietoaster is quite a well known personality at the heartofmadness forums.

Apologies for the episode wait, it's been a bit hectic this week as I'll be going back to Hong Kong. Alex, meanwhile is faced with some epic decisions (to cut a long story short, he has the options to live in Hong Kong, Japan or Canada)

Hearing your comments makes it all worthwhile!

Regarding the post 1:17 mark, there's a little problem on this computer. Occasionally the computer will pause up and cause our adobe audition streams to go out of sync, thus a small delay occurs, I manually cut and trim and paste it back into sync, it seems for some reason, I missed a certain chunk, but the main echo problem only persists)

Our next episode shall be recorded in more optimal conditions thus I think the "out of sync" issues should be corrected.

I was slightly rushed with the editing but believe me, it would have been a disaster had I not done any editing!

David Lee said...

I could be completely wrong, but it sounds like Danes mic is picking up feedback from his speakers. I think if he uses headphones (which would probably be annoying) there wont be any feed back (echoing) while your recording.

The whole Kelly Osbourne thing sounds just as bad at that Paris Hilton show. Crap like that is the reason why i don't watch teleevison anymore. Half of what they air is horrible reality TV shows of spoiled rich "stars", that I could really care less about.

Also, $2300 for an epic box set? Sounds like Happinet is trying to reach the hardest of the hardcore. I wonder how many sexual favors come with that boxset. :p But seriously, I know that LotGH is a long series, but damn thats way too much money to be paying for nostalgia.

BTW good review on both Moonlight Mile and Ichi the Killer. I've been meaning to check out both but i have to say I've been reluctant to check out Ichi. Morbid curiously demands that I give it a try though just to see how desensitized to violence I have become over the years.

Dane Scaysbrook said...

The sad thing is, i was using headphones, but the microphone was picking up Alex from the left ear of the headset, normally I just mute the left ear, I'll have to do that again as this show was a nightmare to edit.

I completely agree about the reality TV thing, especially the Paris Hilton one. Who on earth would want to watch a show featuring someone who is famous for being well...famous? Not to mention decedent, shallow and spoiled?

Glad to hear you liked my review, there's so much going on in that Manga that it's hard to come up with something even semi-coherent to explain just what is going on.

I believe for the price of Legend Of The Galactic Heroes, you could stay at Macau's finest hotel, hire the highest class of working girls, get them to cosplay every character on the show and re-enact the entire show, and then bang them all in the end, for about half the price of that boxset.

Root Beer King said...

Go back to Japan Alex! The Mother land, she misses you!

Root Beer King said...

Though if you moved to hong kong you and Dane could then record in one room thus killing the audio problem... I can see the tough choice you have!

Dane Scaysbrook said...

Well I'm relatively sure that the audio problem will be rectified next episode.

As for Alex, you wouldn't believe the bad luck the poor little fellow has had to endure over the months!

Bo said...

Back on the topic of Hirohiko Araki. I demand... Oh wait, i meant... I would love it if you reviewed something of his. Baoh would probably be the best as its only two books and one short OVA.

I agree with Alex about music during reviews. If any at all, then make sure that it is only instrumental and very low volume compared to the person speaking.

I liked the review of Ichi. When you mentioned the dick plitting i had to hold my hands infront of my crotch out of fear that my mind would spit it for me :P

I am now a subscriber. Im glad that i didnt have to register on LiveJournal to do it. =P

Also, dont stop the anime news. Obviously we all love it, but just not as much as the other stuff. (I voted reviews)

I write to much...

ZombieToaster

Dane Scaysbrook said...

There can never be too much when it comes to advice and more importantly, praise! :>

I don't think we'll stop the anime news. Afterall, it's a great basis for discussion.

And yes, I WILL do something on Hirohiko Araki! Maybe I'll make him an Anime person of the week as we haven't had that segment for quite a while. I'm also poised to review the new JoJo's film which should be out on DVD soon.

I didn't hold my crotch whilst reading Ichi, I actually tried to attain an out of body like state so I could completely eradicate any sensation at all of having a penis, that was the only way I could relieve myself!

Not when some of the most experienced sorcerers among us cant even control her. Once she found it, she turned it toward his breath, met his lips with hers. Youre an infuriating man. He really was afraid. She wanted to lash out, but she was having trouble finding a focus. You told me to mind my elders. He squeezed her shoulder, his eyes gleaming softly in the absence of light. You didnt falter once, even if you were nervous. Or even project emotion on him. But that wasnt to be. Her fingers curled into fists, and she pounded both of them on his chest. He waited until her brain caught up, and she blinked dumbly up at him. I didnt say we werent mad. Before she could curse him again, he took her mouth, properly and completely this time. Dont stop, she begged, clutching sheets. She collapsed into a gooey, shuddering heap. Without my presence, would Eyrhaen have been such a danger? I doubt we could have flourished when every man is lover to only one woman. Her hands grasped his immediately. Because she could not deny him—deny them—any longer.

Brevin stared at the far wall, Tykir at the table, Lanthan at Brevins back. It filled in the cracks that had formed when she exploded, when shed fallen apart. Is the casting of this spell anything like the one that changes women to raedjour? She even stood, with the vague intention of leaving the balcony. Eyes closed, she concentrated on breathing.
