Log Time Podcast | The Big O Discussion — It’s Showtime! (It Actually Is and It’s Glorious)

We’ve been meaning to watch The Big O for a while now, and believe us when we say that it was well worth the wait. Join us as we talk about some good ‘ol big mech nostalgia, the show’s weird twists and turns with memory, and a never-before-seen end-of-cast twist in opinions. This show is an absolute treasure, and we hope you see why by the end of this.

Log Time Podcast | Samurai Flamenco Discussion — Justice Lives on in Our Hearts

Samurai Flamenco is a wild ride. We discuss some of its crazy antics, its different aspects of justice of the main character Masayoshi, and how it makes us think differently and reflect on older sentai super heroes shows and other super hero genres.

Log Time Seasonal Podcast #19 | End of Winter 2019 — Winter Anime Goes Out With a Bang (Dream)

The winter season ended with a bang, and even though we promised ourselves we wouldn’t go overboard, we definitely, definitely did – this one’s almost three hours, but we just had so much we needed to get out there!

Join us as we talk about the weird, granular umami of what makes sports anime great with Run With the Wind, discuss a fair amount of romance with quintuplets, step-siblings, and student council peers, and go nuts over Bang Dream! for…close to an hour? It’s all great, so come on in!

Log Time Podcast #32 | Blue Submarine No. 6 Discussion — An Unexpected Philosophical Deep-Dive?

Have you ever gone back and watched an anime you watched as a kid? It hurts sometimes, because it isn’t always quite as good as you remember it being.

We watched Blue Submarine No. 6, and it was…interesting. Join us as we talk about so-bad-it’s-good 90’s 3DCG, genuinely interesting world-building, and writing issues that drag the whole show down with them.

Log Time Podcast #31 | Guilty Crown Discussion — How Did It Come To This?

There’s a good anime in there somewhere, but this ain’t it.

We watched Guilty Crown and wow, do we regret it. Join us as we talk about voiding, the many, many narrative pitfalls this show digs itself into, and copying others’ work and definitely making it look like your own.

Log Time General #18 Podcast | Beginning of Winter 2019 — The Magnificent Winter Anime

Mythos came back to us, and to celebrate, we decided to do a seasonal cast (definitely not because that’s what we usually do, anyways – totally not)!

For the Xth time in a row, we talk about how “surprisingly good” the winter season is, how we always actually have a lot of good stuff in the winter season, and get down to talking about a veritable treasure trove of shows. We talk about some good, good horror in The Promised Neverland, a lot of 3DCG shows, one of which (cough cough W’z cough cough) gets Tofu both riled up and introspective, some mental, emotional warfare in Kaguya-sama, and really, a lot more things than we can adequately list here.

The Backloggers 4th Anniversary – The Ride Never Ends

It’s that time again, folks. The Backloggers Anniversary has rolled around again, and I honestly can’t believe we’ve been doing this 4 years at this point. Granted, we’ve had our ups and downs in terms of activity and the first year of starting up really doesn’t count anyway, but hey, at least we can say that we’re still doing it and still intend to continue doing it for a while. So no worries about us going anywhere anytime soon; we’re here to stay!

We’ve got a lot of ground to cover with this year’s anniversary post, so let’s just go ahead and get right to it!
