Log Time Seasonal Podcast | End of Summer 2019 — Lost in the (Not So) Wasteful Days of Summer Anime

It’s that time again folks, where we talk about all the seasonal hits and duds. Luckily as with many past seasons, we didn’t watch the duds after the first few eps; we watch it so you don’t have to!

We still talk about our adventures with the season though, which was mostly a success, minus a certain anime about firefighters that got superseded by a movie about firefighters instead… which despite our intentions, we ended up forgetting to talk about!

Either way, here’s some of the popular stuff from the season. Hope you enjoy the deep dive into some of the shows we watched!

The Backloggers Collective — A Fall 2019 Impressions Post

Intro

Hey y’all. I know it’s been a while since we’ve gotten out a post about seasonal anime amongst the three of us, but this post is about to change all of that. We typically do a podcast episode about the season and our impressions based on the first episodes, but we experienced some… technical difficulties during the last podcast which prevented us from doing that this time. So instead, we took the opportunity in our hands to do something different and try something new-ish for us. Let us know what you think!

This is going to be a long post so I’ll keep this part short, but basically with this, we wanted to address some of the shows we found interesting during the season. Hopefully you’ll find something good here in case you wrote the season off early like some of us were going to, or if you’re just looking for Backloggers branded recommendations, then you’ll get that here too.

Violence Voyager Review – A Horror-Filled Journey Into Gekimation

Well, it only took us four years of blogging to get picked up for a review. Go us! 

In all seriousness, though, thanks to TriCoast Studios for reaching out to us about the opportunity to review Violence Voyager – it’s an awesome moment for us to have been asked to do this, and we’ve been pretty dang excited to oblige. I can pretty confidently say that Violence Voyager is entirely unlike anything we’ve seen before as a blogging collective (and you can get a sense of whether or not you’ve seen anything like it, too, by checking out the trailer here)!

Log Time Podcast | Love Lab Discussion — HOW TO BOY??

Love Lab is a show with many layers – most of them are goofy as all get-out, but some of them? Some of them get surprisingly deep for a show about a student council wanting to know how to meet and romance boys. Join us as we talk about really bad puppy dog eyes, harmonized goofs, and the most important question: HOW TO BOY??

Your Lie in April – A Shining Light Within A Sea of Despair

To “lose” something is such a powerful, yet diverse word when it comes to what it means to different people. It’s a word that can mean both a misplacement of something important to us and a heartbreaking parting with someone we know. A word that can mean both a failure to achieve a personal goal and also one of misguidance and confusion. It’s hard to pin down on what “losing” can mean to any individual at any given time. Even further still, it’s complicated to understand how different individuals can cope with each scenario of “loss” regarding its various meanings. Sometimes to “lose” is something we don’t focus on too much, yet at other times, it can be devastating to the point where it feels soul-crushing and unable to be overcome.

Log Time Podcast | Revue Starlight Discussion — Dances with Giraffes

Tofu was told by some folks that Revue Starlight was basically Black Swan with idol girl fights. In this episode, we learn that this is not the case. Join us as we talk about some sick fights and songs, marvel over timeline-looping bananas, and are astounded that we watched a Bushiroad project that wasn’t BanG Dream!

Log Time Seasonal Podcast | Beginning of Summer 2019 — O Anime in This (Not So) Savage Season

I feel like we say this fairly often, but the Summer 2019 season has surprised us with a lot of good good stuff to watch. There’s everything in here you could possibly want. Cute, sincere romance-centric shows? Got ’em. Good dumb shounen fun? It’s in here. High school idiots? Oh buddy, do we ever. Trash? I mean, yeah, it’s here, too.

Join two dinguses and a dying man to discuss things in this episode such as our new hot-blooded shounen series block (shounen hype mileage may vary), more “wow, I didn’t know this show existed”‘s than you can shake a stick at, discussing “the greatest show ever made” brought to you by trains, and previewing “Rush Hour if Jackie Chan was an elf.”
