Rank #1: The Other Side - Episode 136: The One Piece Fandom Is Worse Than Radical Islam
A while ago, TOS looked at a horrendously cringe-inducing, virtue-signaling, look-at-me-ladies-I’m-an-ally piece of garbage article on the One Piece Podcast website. Since then the OPP has blocked us on twitter and called that episode “hate speech”. Then they recently released an article even worse, something so f*****g embarrassing we had to take a look at it. After looking a little deeper, it turns out that the OPP’s worse than we thought, being absolutely riddled with Tumblr gender theory b******t. So join the boys of TOS as they go spelunking into this cave of s**t!
Rank #2: The Other Side - Episode 75: Hit A Man With Glasses (Part 1)
In one of their many forays into geek culture, the trio at The Other Side decided to bring out the magnifying glass of scrutiny and point it towards Channel Awesome, and their flagship site “That Guy With The Glasses”. Examining the good, the bad, and the ridiculous over at the popular review hub. And while they’re at it, the boys have themselves an extended discussion about inner and outer beauty, objectivism, and the need fanboys have to bring their favorite internet personalities into their world.
Rank #3: The Other Side - Episode 3: They're Called "Comics"
In this episode of The Other Side, Alex and Cody take a look at the popular form of webcomics commonly referred to as “Webmanga.” Specifically, they examine why the formula of making anime-derivitive webcomics are doomed to fail, a few choice offenders, and Cody gives us a little insight on what goes into making professional comic art (and in doing so, goes over what does NOT go into making the art found commonly in Webmanga).
Rank #4: The Other Side - Episode 145: Listen To This Podcast or Anime is Cancelled
After the news that Crunchyroll laid off a bunch of people, the boys of The Other Side decided to have a giggle at both Crunchyroll, and the state of the anime industry as a whole, and see if you agree with Cody’s take on why the anime industry is such a damn mess right now!
Rank #5: The Other Side - Episode: 175: The Gay Meme Frog Containment Breach
Hey kids, do you like SCP? Well too bad, because it's creators don't like you back! It's understandable though, as they are far too busy writing their newest masterpieces, like the transsexual Tumble-blog having Homestuck self-insert SCP or the evil computer SCP that will destroy the world with meme frogs that totally aren't Pepe and was created by a wife-beating republican rapist! Also on the chopping block is Uma Musume, especially since it's creators are now begging people not to draw porn of the characters so that the Yakuza won't cut their fingers off! Lastly, there is some discussion on My Hero Academia, including it's atrocious openings and endings.
Rank #6: The Other Side - Episode 70: Forget RWBY Smoke A DWBY
Monty Oum’s “masterpiece” RWBY is a computer-animated, anime-aping crudfest the likes of which The Other Side has never seen before. It’s derivative, it’s boring, it’s poorly animated, and it’s full of the most soulless automatons trying to pass as human the boys have seen since that creepy Robo-Robin Williams from Bicentennial Man. Marvel as the trio at the Other Side thoroughly dissect everything that is so very wrong with RWBY. And find out why some people would rather watch hardcore rape hentai than this series!
Rank #7: The Other Side - Episode 39: Incest Is Best Apparently
For reasons unknown and unfathomable by man, Japan is all about the family fun! No, not the kind you have at Six Flags, the kind you have in illegal videos you have to go to special websites to see! So, Cody and Max decided to look into this garbage, even going over such gems as Kiss x Sis, Aki Sora, and My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute, to see what the deal behind all this asian redneckery is. And unlike garbage they’ve seen before like, oh, say, Boku no Pico, this garbage is PREVALENT. There’s a LOT of it. And this realization was just too much for poor Cody…
Rank #8: The Other Side - Episode 127: Putting The “Genocide” in Genocide Cutter
It’s another double feature on The Other Side! First, the boys discuss an old interview they heard recently between Vic Mignogna and the assclowns over at Anime News Network, and how their treatment of Vic and apparent disdain for the fact that he likes Jesus really pissed off the TOS trio. This, of course, leads into heavy discussions about heavy things. Then we move on from heavy things to discussion of video game lore! With King of Fighters XIV coming out this month, the boys decided to do a miniature version of one of their catch-up episodes and go through the previous KoF story arcs, to get you prepared for KOFXIV (which begins the newest arc). Strap in, folks, because this is the franchise that injected lore into fighting games to begin with!
Rank #9: The Other Side - Episode 176: My Kengan Asura Waifu could beat up your Konosuba Waifu
Cody likes Fighting EX Layer. Also, Whitebringer and Negatokyo have been released on AO at last and are now available for your reading pleasure. For some incomprehensible reason, Andrew has started to self-harm by reading the Konosuba novels. With more explosions than the average London afternoon, these novels are sure to entertain if you are a horny loser with no standards! Max likes Kengan Asura. There's more Overlord discussion, too. Lastly, the guys speculate on which song the new Jojo anime will end up using.
Rank #10: The Other Side - Episode 126: Relief From The Webcomics
Continuing the apparent theme of following up previous topics, Cody goes it alone this time, bringing on YouTube webcomic reviewer Riiser of The Webcomic Relief to discuss something TOS has touched on many times; the “wonderful” world of webcomics! Cody grills Riiser over his positive review of Megatokyo, Riiser talks about his run-ins with some particularly deranged webcomic authors and fans, Cody educates Riiser about the earliest deranged furries, Riiser educates Cody about what furry porn artists really think about furries, and the day tops off with a discussion about how Riiser may have the only legitimate story of bullying on YouTube. It’s a hella-fun special episode that you can’t afford to miss!
Rank #11: The Other Side - Episode 13: Revenge Of The Webmanga
On one of their earliest episodes, Alex and Cody discussed terrible, anime-styled webcomics, or “webmanga.” The comics they discussed were awful. They were dumb. They were ridiculous. But now, Alex and Cody tackle a few more “webmanga,” but this time, it’s not just any old terrible, anime-styled webcomic. Oh no… In this episode, Cody and Alex look at a handful of progressively more and more disturbing works that not only display the kind of twisted SOBs that fancy themselves to be the creative types, but prove, once and for all, that you can produce the most vile garbage imaginable, and still find a loyal and abundant fanbase on the internet. The episode may start out with little more than a fetish-laden sad-fest, but by the end…
Rank #12: The Other Side - Episode 33: The Webmanga Strikes
It’s so perfect it makes you wonder why they haven’t done this before! The two writers, past and present, for Project AFTER’s Comic Release article, examine 4 more terrible webmanga in The Other Side’s continuing look into the world of rip-offs, wish fulfillment, fetish fappery, and Roger Ebert-esque failures of critics to become writers. This time, Cody and Max explore a couple fetish comics that acts as a sort of reverse viagra for the rest of the world, a comic that stands as one of the most infamously terrible on the Internet, and one prominent comic that may not be as bad as the other three, but represents a hypocrisy that is awe-inspiring, if nothing else. And, of course, we get a few art lessons from Cody, and the story of how he almost unloaded on one of the internet’s most infamous human failures in person.
Rank #13: The Other Side - Episode 154: Otaku is the New Furry
In preparation of the upcoming "A Centaur's Life" anime, one of the AO team members, Jackson Fall, decided to read the manga and was stunned by how unbelievably bad it was. Knowing Crunchyroll was primed to make this their new favorite when the anime came out, the TOS crew had to bring Jackson on to tell the world what’s in this thoroughly b*****t insane series. As a bonus, Cody throws out a recommendation for a must-see anime, and explains how the anime fandom is becoming the new furry fandom.
Rank #14: The Other Side - Episode 157: What Eromanga Did To Us
On a really bad decision, the guys at The Other Side decided to watch this Eromanga Sensei show everyone’s talking about, and it’s safe to say no anime in recent memory has broke TOS the way this one did. This podcast ‘bout to bubble. But first, Cody does some housekeeping and tells everyone about the saddest group of people you’ll ever see!
Rank #15: The Other Side - Episode 170: Springtime for Hitler and Anime
After so many audio problems thet made this episode resemble a Slender Man tape, the boys of the Other Side are finally back to talk about the Spring Season... which has long since started. Whoops. Nevertheless, enjoy a blast from the not so distant past as you marvel at how incredibly, totally and entirely accurate all their predictions turn out to be. Again.
Rank #16: The Other Side - Episode 90: The Great DashCon Of 2014
It was the most disastrous convention that everyone saw coming, but no one knew just how right they were. Tumblr’s own convention DashCon came and went, producing a barrel of memes based around the ineptitude and sheer, utter failure of its staff and participants. It was a failure so spectacular that the Other Side, who have already taken tumblr to task in the past, had to revisit their old friend to laugh at its pain. And this time they brought “tumblr expert” LeighAnn Williams along to help explain all the dumb s**t they don’t know about. LINKS: Jim Norton intellectually piledrives a radical feminist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtUb_E1qUHA Hebe Goldstein’s DashCon footage: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWkYEG_G78XBNZyZu1py-sP28WcikJ5Fh’
Rank #17: The Other Side - Episode 144: Fate/Get F****d
Ever hear of the Fate franchise? Y’know, Fate/Stay Night, Fate/Zero, all that stuff? Ever wonder what it’s actually about? What’s in it? Well hoo-doggie, you’re in for a treat! Strap in, as The Other Side takes you for a ride through Fate Town. And by the end, you’ll really, really wish they hadn’t.
Rank #18: The Other Side - Episode 174: Don't Fooly My Cooly
The Other Side finally returns, with a new format no less! Instead of letting themselves be constrained to a single topic per episode (with maybe some asides at the beginning), our hosts now talk about a smattering of different subjects! From Castlevania and it's spiritual successor Bloodstained, Star Wars, My Hero Academia, how much dick both Fooly Cooly and it's recent sequel suck all the way to how sexual psychology explains the anime fandom's endless fetishes and ravenous thirst, this episode has it all!
Rank #19: The Other Side - Episode 115: Flaccid And Angry
For a year, now, the boys of The Other Side have been threatening to subject themselves to High School DxD, but never had the guts to actually do it. Until now. Yes, the TOS Trio finally bit the bullet and sat through this Ecchi trainwreck. If you ever thought that there was no such thing as too many t**s, Cody, max, and Andrew are here to inform you that you are sadly mistaken. Hear all about their experience through this garbage, and how fanservice can get so obnoxious it can destroy your libido. And as a bonus, the guys school you in the correct way to pronounce “anime”, and even hook you up with a feww good things to watch!
Rank #20: The Other Side - Episode 160: More Sonic S**t
After taking some time off, the boys were looking for something to talk about, when suddenly the world flooded ‘em with everything Sonic-related all in the same week. From the roller coaster o’ drama that is the fate of the comic book, to the hilariously 00’s-style edge of what was coming out from Forces, to Andrew’s adventures through Sonic 4, what better way to relax after digging through the garbage? What they didn’t expect was that the podcast would go so wonderfully off the rails…!
