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”…
OP1 – Get sucked into the latest Takahashi show…
OP2 – Avengers… ASSEMBLE!
ED – This Civil War has torn us all apart…
This show has:
Man… no wonder it took 12 years for a Clerks 2 to come out…
Yooo. It’s been a long time since you guys had the full original crew on here. -and I can hear everybody. Haha.
Wow I had no idea Rin-Ne had an anime adaption now. I remember saying a listing for the manga but I have heard absolutely no one talk about it. I do like most of Rumiko Takahashi’s work so I’ll have to check it out eventually.
Yeah, I also thought Avengers 2 was good but it wasn’t great or bad. It kind of felt like an intermission to me.
Great episode as always guys.

Hey long time no see, good to see you comment again.
Like I said in the podcast, I’m excited for Civil War for the next film because I want to know and understand the series better.
Well have the next episode ready by the time I get back from Animazement.
