Here we continue more of our discussion of the spring anime season, where Zeonic is absent from this recording as he’s gradually recovering from his crazy weekend at Animazement. However Jonn, Josh and Daft take the reigns to discuss more about not only the anime in the spring, but also from previous anime seasons still going on.

(0:00 – 35:15) Series from previous Anime Seasons Review: The gang talks about shows from both the Fall and Winter anime seasons, both new and continuing with Assassination Classroom, Comical Psychosomatic Medicine, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan, Nisekoi, and My Teen Romance Comedy Snafu Too. They also discuss sites dedicated to finding everything wrong with professional subtitles, opinions on Haruhi Suzumiya, and much more.

(35:15 – 1:43:02) Spring Anime 2015 List Review: Here is where we review every other anime but Rinne, because that was already covered in our last episode. So for the full list we have Arslan Senki (The Heroic Legend of Arslan TV), Ultimate Otaku Teacher, Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon?, Gunslinger Stratos: The Animation, Sound Euphonium, Blood Blockade Battlefront, Ninja Slayer: The Animation, My Love Story!!, Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign, Plastic Memories, Punch Line, Food Wars and Show by Rock!! This also gets the gang into discussion the latest on Chris Chan court dates and how he went to a club, people on Twitter, how Charlie Hebdo was an inside job, general conspiracy theory talk, and much more.

(1:43:02 – 1:59:16) Podcast Zinger: This was pre-review stuff that happened before anyone really started to review anything. This involved discussing Penguins Memory and a past reviewers obsession over it, talking about stuff Josh hasn’t seen, how Daft is too lazy to edit podcasts and doesn’t understand how they work, and much more. (aka, Daft, it does NOT take an hour for me to edit any episode I ever do – Zeonic)

In this episode, the podcast comes together on blockbuster movie sized proportions, where we are able to get us a full house “Avengers Assemble” style gang together to talk about not only one show out of this current anime season, but also to discuss the latest Avengers film. Even though disastrous internet quality tries to foil our review plans, we still are able to suit up with returning guest Daft”PunkFan”37 and VeemonJosh. Listen as we all dawn our podcast alter ego’s to discuss Kyokai no Rinne and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

(0:00 – 30:08) Review – Kyokai no Rinne: This was an anime that came under Zeonic radar a few weeks ago as he was working on his Mamoru Oshii presentation for his Art History class, because when one browses Wikipedia for Rumiko Takahashi and sees that her recent manga became an anime, one is inclined to check into it. As of this review, only Jonn and Zeonic saw the first few episodes, but it runs pretty much like a typical Takahashi show, which wasn’t all that bad really. This also leads into discussion on a leaked pilot for a Clerks TV series, how Sentai Filmworks obtained Rinne, and Takahashi’s work in general.

(30:08 – 32:01) Podcast Promo’s: Alpha Counter just released their own review of Avengers: Age of Ultron recently, and Dave and Joel continue to heat up the mics some more involving Jojo’s and other stuff. Speaking of Avengers…

(32:01 – 1:23:00) Non-Anime Review – Avengers: Age of Ultron: We’re definitely nerds over comic book movies every year, only because Marvel keeps making the films that draw in the biggest crowds. This year we get another Avengers movie, and we have our own personal gripes and viewpoints on the film. This gets us into discussing SJW style twitter comments by JesuOtaku, a random encounter with past guest ChibiGoku (which doesn’t last long), general comic book talk, Totally Spies reference, the true target demographic for comic book super heroes shows and toys, and our thoughts on the Batman vs Superman trailer. All this and a whole lot more in this episode. Stay tuned for part “b”…
