Episode 599: Kaguya-sama wa Neverland

Remember dear listeners, episode 600 will feature an old favorite of the show, Ichigo! If you want to ask the OG host of Anime Pulse any questions, you may submit them in the forums or by leaving them in the comments on either this or episode 598's comments section. Want to know his favorite Japanese food? Why he is called the 'Emo Eskimo'? Or perhaps how he came to be called Ichigo in the first place? All these questions and more are yours to ask! But first on this episode of Anime Pulse, Joseph talks about his new kink of being bullied by women and Andrew falls asleep watching Shazam. Industry news gets kids hyped for exercise, as well as JSDF trying to temp otaku to join with shotas. And the reviews wrap us up with Andrew tricking everyone into think he is reviewing an anime in 4 words, and Joseph enjoying a battle known as love where the loser is the first to confess.

Episode 541: How To Raise A Certain Scientific Railgun

Manga Pulse 418: Last Devil

Pairs of manga inbound. Everyone duck and mind the review shrapnel. Once it’s clear, we’ll go over the wall and take the next doujin.

Like a murmured hymn in a stuffy church, it will put you to sleep. Borders.

Manga Pulse 419: Kuby Snacks

It’s not a shot of B12 but vitamin manga has been proven to support your immune system. Insofar as you’re now immune to at least one more bad manga than you were before. Tim has Kubera. We start with a girl who was told to never share her name with anyone, lives in a small village, and is having her sixteenth birthday. If you can look past the neon signs indicating Kubera as the protagonist, you will see an art style reminiscent of the mid two thousands Deviant Art comic. She goes out into the forest to gather food for dinner and comes back to find the town engulfed in a ball … Continue reading "Manga Pulse 419: Kuby Snacks"
