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.

Lil’ Log Podcast | Escha Chron Discussion — Short Time Shenanigans

Welcome to our first Lil’ Log Cast! These are going to be an offshoot of our current suite of stuff where we take a look at some shorter series. Incidentally, we also chose this show completely at random using our patented new selection method called Mystery Garbage! Thankfully it didn’t steer us wrong this time, but stick around and maybe we’ll get something really weird with it.

For this cast, we watched Escha Chron, a delightful short OVA series about time and space-bending girls that just want to learn about our world. Talking points include comfy stuff…actually, yeah, that’s most of it, but it’s great, we promise!

We’ve been meaning to watch The Big O for a while now, and believe us when we say that it was well worth the wait. Join us as we talk about some good ‘ol big mech nostalgia, the show’s weird twists and turns with memory, and a never-before-seen end-of-cast twist in opinions. This show is an absolute treasure, and we hope you see why by the end of this.
