[Seasonal Podcast] Log Time General #18 | Beginning of Winter 2019 — The Magnificent Winter Anime

Mythos came back to us, and to celebrate, we decided to do a seasonal cast (definitely not because that’s what we usually do, anyways – totally not)!

For the Xth time in a row, we talk about how “surprisingly good” the winter season is, how we always actually have a lot of good stuff in the winter season, and get down to talking about a veritable treasure trove of shows. We talk about some good, good horror in The Promised Neverland, a lot of 3DCG shows, one of which (cough cough W’z cough cough) gets Tofu both riled up and introspective, some mental, emotional warfare in Kaguya-sama, and really, a lot more things than we can adequately list here.

Log Time General Podcast #17| End of Fall 2018 — Rest In Peace, Fall Anime

We decided to drink and do a seasonal podcast to come to terms with Mythos’ absence.

We talk about some of our favorite shows from the fall anime season, along with other shows that we thought were boppin’. We discussed what made some shows like Zombie Land Saga and Bunny Girl Senpai unique within their genre of shows, and how others like SSSS.Gridman and Run with the Wind are similar to other shows, but also doing their own take on those elements as well.

As a final send-off to our year, we also showcase our Anime of the Year Top 5!

Log Time General Podcast #16 | Beginning of Fall 2018 — Bloom Into Fall Anime

This week on the Log Time Podcast, we encounter the good, the bad, and the weird of the Fall 2018 season. We discuss an immaculate Conception, talk about spooky booksellers and monster spouses in some short shows, geek out over some kaiju action in SSSS.Gridman, get some good rap battles in via Zombieland Saga (which apparently is not a continuation of the 2009 film), and talk about a spooky bunny actress girl in Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai. This season is full of good shows, so do some digging and find something you like!

Log Time General Podcast #15 | End of Spring 2018 — 3D Boys / Real Anime

This week on the Log Time Podcast, we lament that life made watching anime difficult this season, but we cover a few shows that made the Spring 2018 season great for us. We get to the nitty-gritty of the sheer fun of Megalo Box, discuss the awkward (but good) mess that is 3D Kanojo/Real Girl, and go ham on what seemed to be our show of the season, Hinamatsuri.

Log Time General Podcast #14 | Beginning of Spring 2018 — We Never Fall in Love (with Spring Anime)

This week on the Log Time Podcast, we combat the veritable wasteland that is the Spring 2018 anime season. We discuss a few solid shows that knocked (or boxed) our socks off, a solid smattering of “meh”-worthy works, and contend with the general sense of anime ennui that comes from having a season try to follow up the Winter 2018 season. Also, Kyle dies. He will be missed until the next podcast.

Log Time General Podcast #13 | End of Winter 2018 — After the Winter Anime

I really can’t tell you what happened with this one, but this week on the Log Time Podcast, we lose our collective minds and have a ton of fun with this wrap-up of the Winter 2018 anime season. We unintentionally cover what were this season’s big three shows, get *deep* into a discussion of Violet Evergarden, and get hype about a few other solid picks from the season, such as After the Rain and Hakumei to Mikochi. Among other things, we also (sort of) hold an airing of grievances at the end of the cast, and we try to help Matt pronounce “hnnnnnnng”.

Log Time Podcast #30 | Mawaru Penguindrum Discussion — Initiate the Survival Strategy

This week, we talk about some of the craziness of Mawaru Penguindrum.

Join us as we talk about child broilers, the symbolic representation of penguins, how moray eels can represent our inner feelings of fear, and what those subway trains and “95” may actually mean within the show.

UPDATE: We do apologize that the future podcasts will not be in the same detailed video formats as the previous ones. The picture in picture version of the podcast just takes too much time for the time being, and we’ve decided to take a hiatus from doing it this way. We hope you still continue to listen to us and encourage others to do so as well!
