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.

July 2017 Monthly Content Round-up

Hey ya’ll, welcome to our anime content round-up, a new sort of post that we’re doing!

In similar veins to other anime bloggers, this will be a collection of all the articles, videos, and creators that we wanted to give mention to for their outstanding content and also gives us a way to thank them for the work they’ve put into these pieces. Of course, there’s tons more content and content creators than just these that we’d love to mention, but to keep these posts brief for your sanity and ours, we limited to five for each of us.

Since there’s three of us at The Backloggers, we also will be rotating out who picks the notable posts each time (and also who writes these little intros). There will likely be times where all three of us will contribute to the same month, but that will not necessarily always happen, but we’ll try to provide at least two people’s choices and switch around who does them for variety. These choices will be personal picks, either something we find interesting, thought-provoking, or just unique in terms of their content, and then we’ll talk a little bit about why we chose each article.

Anyway, enough with the obligatory info dump. Let’s move on to our picks, starting with Mythos.

Log Time General Podcast #7 | End of Spring 2017 — Anime Was the Right Choice

This week, we wrap up the Spring 2017 season, and despite not having many solid single-season picks, we talk about how legitimately awesome some of this season’s shows were. We discuss how Eromanga-sensei is bad, but not as bad as everyone says, we say our final regards about SukaSuka, we get comfy with Tsuki ga Kirei, we get hype for more Re:Creators, and we see an actual good 2D/3DCG show with Seikaisuru Kado.

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).

This podcast was recorded on June 15th, 2017.

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.
