Log Time Podcast #26 | Hanasaku Iroha Discussion — Find Your Way

This week, we talk about the P.A. Works’ lesser-spoken-of masterstroke, Hanasaku Iroha. We discuss the balance it strikes between lighthearted story and drama, its extensive development of its characters, both main and side, and evisceration (but, you know, not like a bad evisceration).

Log Time Podcast #25 | The Tatami Galaxy Discussion — Infinite Possibilities

This week, we talk about the decidedly beautiful, weird show that is The Tatami Galaxy. We discuss how strongly the story and visuals are intertwined thematically, how its Groundhog Day-esque story hinge works so well, and why we’re watching another show that involves the protag’s genitalia being referred to as “Johnny.”

Log Time Podcast #24 | Lucky☆Star Discussion — I Don’t Care What End of a Choco Coronet Is the Head

This week, we talk about Lucky Star’s unique, historic brand of humor, why it works for some viewers, and why it put certain members of the gang in almost literal hell. We also talk about perceptions of the show’s humor perhaps seeming a bit dated, the importance/needlessness of additions to the main cast, and why Minoru Shiraishi is just the best.

Log Time General Podcast #6 | Beginning of Spring 2017 — Are You Busy? Will You Watch Spring Anime?

This week, we dive into the Spring 2017 season and are once again surprised by how much we’re actually watching this season. We talk about some hot picks for the season, somehow talk about Hand Shakers for the third general cast in a row, and discuss why Eromanga-sensei has been getting so much hate.

Log Time Podcast #23 | Steins;Gate Discussion — Mad Scientist Discussion Sponsored by Dk Pepper

This week, in what might feel like two separate timelines, we both extol the mad scientist virtues of Chiyomaru Shikura’s wild ride Steins;Gate AND go through an impressively long rant about the show in a fairly short span of time.

Also, this is NOT actually sponsored by Dr. Pepper, which is probably a good thing, at this point.

This podcast was recorded on March 17th, 2017.

Log Time General Podcast #4 | Beginning of Winter 2017 — Winter Season’s Revenge
