Face front, true believers! In this episode the Anibros work through some family matters in the smallest corner of anitwitter before bringing you an important news bulletin and lending a sympathetic ear in the first edition of our newly syndicated advice column. All this plus an update on what anime we’ve ingested since the last time we rapped, culminating in our review of Your Name.
Relationship status: it’s complicated.
In the interest of fairness, I will disclose here that this episode may contain plot details for Your Name that could be considered spoilers. But even if you haven’t seen the film, please listen to this episode because you still get almost an hour of content before we get into spoilers. And if you HAVE seen the film, you have no excuse: listening is mandatory.
Apologies for the break there, but we’re back once again to talk about a real swell anime called Kino’s Journey. Just like in her travels, we venture through many unique territories and meet many strange people in this episode, including schoolgirls, giant robots, and the President of the United States.
Kino provides the balance, Hermes provides the speed, and together they can go anywhere they wish.
Also in this issue: Willis makes a life-changing decision.
Welcome to our first live call-in show, or more accurately, the recording of it! We hosted a hangout in hyperspace and invited one and all to join us in our periodical discussion of anime. The fatal flaw: we only gave out the link to join after we had started the show, and only distributed it verbally once, on the same show. Nevertheless, we weren’t without callers!
Your face while listening to this episode, wishing that you had called in!
Who called in and what did we talk about? Prepare to be surprised!
