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??

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.”

A Backloggers Light Novel: We Hadn’t Been Nominated For A Blogging Award Before, But I Guess We’re Gonna Try It Out Anyway (Sunshine Award 2019)

First off, thanks to the Medieval Otaku Blog for nominating us for the Sunshine Award 2019. If it wasn’t for this nomination, we wouldn’t have found your blog which is a pretty interesting perspective to come at anime with, so thank you for that as well!

We hadn’t received one of these before, so we weren’t sure how to handle it at first, but we appreciate the nomination and hope that you enjoy the content that’s on our blog! You guys as readers are definitely one of the reasons that we continue to write and make content, so thank you so much.

Log Time Campfire Cast | Let’s (Shounen) Jump Right Into It

Welcome to our first Campfire Cast! These are going to be an offshoot of our current suite of stuff where we talk about pretty much anything and everything anime and manga-adjacent that we’ve been into recently or recent events in the industry.

In this one, we talk about shounen manga and anime series, some Japanese originated video games, and even share how we all got into anime to begin with and why. Also, there’s some random discussion about the English alphabet, but that’s just par for the course for us.
