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.

Log Time Podcast #27 | Engaged to the Unidentified Discussion — Strange Love

This week, we talk about Doga Kobo’s Engaged to the Unidentified, the slice of life rom-com that begins normally, gets weird, and ends (relatively) normally. We discuss interesting re-contextualization of certain tropes, consistent, unnecessary conflicts with speedy resolutions, the interesting shift towards a more female-centric perspective for a rom-com of this type, and just how dang gorgeous the show is.

August 2017 Monthly Content Round-up

Hey, Mythos here!

Well, it’s another month in the Anisphere and there’s been a ton of new and awesome content to check out!  It seems like every month there’s just more and more incredible analyses, entertaining videos, and in-depth podcasts that I’m having trouble wading through the sea of content.  I love it, though, and I think it speaks to the incredible love the world has for a medium that started so little on a small collection of islands in the pacific.

Well, given how much there is to look at, we Backloggers thought we’d take it upon ourselves to point out a few.  So grab a beer and a cowboy hat as we have ourselves a hot dang hootenanny and round up of few of ‘em rascals for y’all’s viewin’ pleasure.  Ignore the Texan bleeding through and let’s get started with a choice pick from all of us at the Backloggers!

Log Time General Podcast #8 | Beginning of Summer 2017 — Summer Anime Miracle Examiners

This week, we dig into the Summer 2017 season, which is a legitimate miracle because we found so many shows to watch. We find Jesus in the Vatican Kiseki Chousakan, try not to geek out too hard over Gamers!, talk about food a lot with Isekai Shokudou, and check out of Konbini Kareshi for good, among other things.
