Download Episode 61 here.

Yes, it's yet another preview episode where me and Alex drone on about what might or might not suck.

Shootin' The Breeze

Hokuto No Ken; The Arcade Game in FLASH!?

Excuse me while I ejaculate dance for glee.

I bought Wii-Fit!

And it's great!

Alex insists you also watch this (admittedly) hilarious parody trailer:

It's 300 pound (136 KG) limit might be a sore point for, Americans though!

African? Like Japanese girls?

Go to Okinawa!

Looks like I won't be, though. I'm so white, I was labelled as "powder" (an old obscure movie) in High school just to illustrate how white I was/am.

We're excited about:

Episode 59; Very ex-machina!

Download Episode 59, here.

Shootin' The Breeze

Remember that Polish series I said I was involved in subtitling? It turns out the torrent of it, involves the "alpha" version of episode one which I never intended to release. Mama Mia! Alex proceeds to make fun of me. Then proceeds to not listen to my explanation. Then hears my explanation. Then decides to prevent me from explaining so that he can continue to mock me as fast as impossible before the inevitable explanation renders his mocking unnecessary.

We talk a bit about Street Fighter IV.

Alex also lets us know about the Japan-Probe esque blog, Tokyo Times.

Alex reveals his love of the novel; Princess Of Mars.

Mini Review: The Gunbuster Movie

Alex finally got around to seeing yet another classic, "Gunbuster" albeit this 20th Anniversary theatrical cut. Feel your old school blood boil!

Review: Appleseed Ex Machina

I also do a mini-review of the Appleseed OVA from 1988. Still, my preferred version. Apologies in advance, the video below is an AMV.

Here's the trailer for Ex Machina.


We discuss a few e-mails we get, one pertaining to the possible future of Cowboy Bebop, the other about "Germanic Behavior".

It's a wrap!

I'm now studying a degree on top of this rather time consuming podcast. Aint' I lovely.

Anime Pacific Episode 58: You say Regina, I say Ragina

Download Episode 58 here.

Another slightly chit-chatty episode, but this time, with an Anime Review!

Edit: Added link to Kitaro on the right. Also, check out this fantastic article about it, here.

How could anyone NOT like the opening to this:

Shootin The Breeze

Alex discusses The Last Man who managed to leave his home without severe anal hemoraging

We lament the death of D&D's creator.

Alex also points us to an article that explains why D&D was so good.

Alex (yet again) wants to let you suburbanites know about something disturbing.

Finally, we discuss something very awesome, sent in by the very lovable lad, N15PCA.

Review: Irresponsible Captain Tylor

Unfortunately, the DVD seems to be out of stock and/or out of print and isn't as easy to find as I thought. So I'm afraid I can't post a link. Try E-Bay, it worked for me!

Definitely in both me and Alex' top 10; It's THAT good.

It's a wrap!

Next week, Appleseed;Ex Machina!

Episode 57: Winnie The Peg

Download Episode 57 here.

Recorded this time, from Winnipeg and Hong Kong, Alex's slow hotel Internet connection caused a little bit of a delay in our voice, which caused a bit of post production hell.

Shootin' The Breeze

This is a "chit-chat" episode; definitely more Pacific than Anime this episode.

Alex gives his reactions to the now infamous, mainland toilet picture I posted last episode.

I also talk about my, "Floppy". Now, this isn't what you would expect (if you've listened to this show for any length of time). I'm talking about my English Cocker Spaniel, "Floppy".

Alex is mortified.

ABC Picks up the Edison scandal

Article here.

Their report is about a month too late.

We also discuss the huge amount of referrals we get from pedophiles & Greenland enthusiasts (yes, really!).

We also discuss the very wonderful, Scott Green linking to our humble show, yet again! Cheers Scott!

Dominion under review!?

Kent let us know about this latest news article about Dominion being among pornographic titles under review by the Canadian censorship board. Yes, it's completely baffling.

Japan's continuing downward spiral

Alex discusses part of the reason why he thinks Japan is sinking.

We then discuss the fascinating article, "Not Made In Japan".

It's a wrap!

Next week, we really will be speaking about a certain Irresponsible Space Captain.
