Log Time Podcast #30 | Mawaru Penguindrum Discussion — Initiate the Survival Strategy

This week, we talk about some of the craziness of Mawaru Penguindrum.

Join us as we talk about child broilers, the symbolic representation of penguins, how moray eels can represent our inner feelings of fear, and what those subway trains and “95” may actually mean within the show.

UPDATE: We do apologize that the future podcasts will not be in the same detailed video formats as the previous ones. The picture in picture version of the podcast just takes too much time for the time being, and we’ve decided to take a hiatus from doing it this way. We hope you still continue to listen to us and encourage others to do so as well!

March 2018 Monthly Content Round-up

Here in the continental United States (at least on the east coast), March has been a pretty frigid, unpredictable season for us. However, it seems that the Aniblogger community has been heating things up to balance that out this month! We’ve got some hot posts about topics from all across the board, it seems, ranging from this season’s big picks like Violet Evergarden and Yuru Camp, to a postmortem for musical group Kalafina, to some important, current discussions about our larger anime community as a whole, and how we can look to shape ourselves and our perspectives going forward. There’s a little something for everyone here, so stay a while, check out our picks for the month, and hopefully find something that speaks to you!

Log Time General Podcast #12 | Beginning of Winter 2018 — Winter’s Laid-Back Anime

We bust out of the beginning of the Winter 2018 season with some ridiculously solid shows to help us start the year out right. We all pretty much melt over the sheer level of comfy coming from shows like Yuru Camp and Hakumei to Mikochi, we get into the fascinating but puzzling A-1/Trigger collaboration Darling in the Franxx, discuss our hopes and fears about Violet Evergarden, and almost pass out because we had so many dang good shows to talk about this season.

Log Time General Podcast #11 | End of Fall 2017 — The Gems of the Season

This podcast, we crawl out of the Fall 2017 season battered and bruised from the year behind us, but come up with some heavy-hitters and anime of the year contenders! We go deep into (read as: gush for what seems like hours) Just Because! and its incredible subtleties in storytelling, finally talk about a genuinely good 3DCG show a la Land of the Lustrous, check out a few other solid picks for the season, and we almost kill Matt and end the podcast over an almost-pun.

December 2017 / January 2018 Monthly Content Round-up

Hi, all! For our last round-up post, we kind of switched things up a bit, focusing on posts of our own from the blog that we really enjoyed from 2017. However, there was a lot of great content that came out in December, so we felt that it would be a huge shame if we just passed over the month altogether. To fix that, we decided to do a combined post for December 2017 and January 2018, and man were there some solid picks for this one. Get ‘em while they’re hot (from the last two months but hey they’re still warm in our hearts)!

Yep, our blog is still alive and we’re glad to say that!
