Log Time Podcast #29 | Origin: Spirits of the Past Discussion — A Vast, But Empty Land

This week, in our first cast covering solely a movie, we take a look at Origin: Spirits of the Past. We discuss the fascinating world the film begins but ultimately fails to flesh out in any deep way, the gorgeous animation and feel of it, and how we can’t help but feel like we’ve seen this film’s individual parts elsewhere.

Important Blog Update and November 2017 Monthly Content Round-up

Hey everyone, Mythos here.  November went by and you may have noticed a lack of updates on our part.  It’s funny, the three of us started this blog specifically because we enjoyed talking with each other about anime so much, we wanted to share our thoughts and talk to others about it.  Sadly, we’ve been pretty mute, haven’t we?

October 2017 Monthly Content Round-up

Yep, it’s that time once again folks! We’re still trying to get the remaining spooks out of our system as October finishes itself out, but just like the many, various candies of Halloween being handed out, we at the Backloggers are handing out sweet, delicious anime articles! Yeah, they’re not exactly tasty like candies, but hopefully you’ll find a post that fits your tastes just like that favorite candy of yours.

Log Time General Podcast #9 | End of Summer 2017 — “Gamers! is a Masterpiece of Our Generation”

This week, we wrap up the Summer 2017 season with some of the best and most questionable shows of the season. To name a few, we talk about how Gamers! is absolutely totally definitely “a masterpiece of our generation”, the excellence and horrors of Made in Abyss, and find ourselves hankering for another dish of Isekai Shokudou.

September 2017 Monthly Content Round-up

The month of September has been pretty crazy in the Anisphere, the industry, and the meatspace altogether. As a result of said craziness, Owningmatt93 was not able to join us in our monthly roundup post (RIP in peace), but we have persevered and found ourselves a pretty broad variety of fascinating content, so much so that we weren’t able to include all of the picks that we wanted to here!

You want an in-depth look at Mari Okada? It’s here. You want to strap back into the 2000’s and dig into a jazzy AMV? Bub, we’ve got you covered. Do you want some perspective on that Death Note movie that came out on Netflix? God help you, but we’ve got that for you, too. Do you want to get academic, or talk about love, or dig into some talk about taboo and masochism, or other neat stuff? Strap yourselves in, because boy have we got it covered. Whatever the case, you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy here, so give it a look, and check out some of these pieces that we couldn’t get enough of this month!

Log Time Podcast #28 | Glasslip Discussion – A Shimmering but Unclear Future

This week, we talk about P. A. Works’ arguably weirdest show, Glasslip. We discuss the show’s odd pacing, unnatural character dialogue, gorgeous stills that make up half of the show, and whether or not the show is secretly a masterpiece.

Update: We’re on iTunes and Soundcloud!

Hey everyone!  Mythos, here.  Got a little bit of exciting news.  The Backloggers finally have a purely audio format for the podcast!

I know! It's only been, like, what? Two years?

I know! It’s only been, like, what? Two years of doing this?

Outside of the full list on YouTube, we have three episodes of the Log Time podcast out now on iTunes and SoundCloud and are planning on possibly adding them to other places like the Google Play Store.  Let us know if outside of those there are any other places y’all tend to listen to podcasts.  We’ll also be going through the backlog (heh) of the other video podcasts and adding them as well.

We’ve been working on this for a bit and, if you notice, we kinda ran with a couple different intro/outros for the three episodes currently up but we think finally found a formula we like with the Engaged to the Unidentified podcast that we just put out.  Let us know what you guys think because we really want to improve this going forward.  Also, not to be one of those “smash the like button” types but the only way for people to see any of these anime podcasts out on the iTunes store is to support them.  Otherwise, they’ll be lost to obscurity.  So, if you could, rate and comment on iTunes.  It’ll really help us out.

Oh!  While you’re there, if you haven’t already, rate and comment on Anime is Lit.  They’re fantastic to listen to and each episode is really entertaining and clever.  They deserve all the love you can give them.

Thanks!  Hope you all enjoy.
