Have you ever gone back and watched an anime you watched as a kid? It hurts sometimes, because it isn’t always quite as good as you remember it being.
We watched Blue Submarine No. 6, and it was…interesting. Join us as we talk about so-bad-it’s-good 90’s 3DCG, genuinely interesting world-building, and writing issues that drag the whole show down with them.
There’s a good anime in there somewhere, but this ain’t it.
We watched Guilty Crown and wow, do we regret it. Join us as we talk about voiding, the many, many narrative pitfalls this show digs itself into, and copying others’ work and definitely making it look like your own.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
