Super Shibuya Anime Culture Review: Super Gals – If you want to test the standards of any 2000’s anime comedy series can still hold up in today’s anime fandom, just leave it up to podcast reviewers to see how far they can stand a show before calling it quits. This is more of a review of the first two episodes of Super Gals than it is a whole series of Super Gals. Let’s not kid ourselves, these two episodes gave both hosts everything they needed to know about this anime. Super Gals is a parody of 1990’s Japanese fashion culture that lies somewhere between Kogal girls, Ganguro girls and fighting for justice because you’re daddy is a police chief. This also gets into talking about how Jonn has too much Hamtaro on his hard drive, defending Gundam 0083, if Super Gals can be used for CIA torture on terrorism, music history of Para Para, past ADV properties and much more.
(45:00 – 1:33:12) Closing Remarks: This is the hosts talking about the latest Chris Chan stuff and his supposed girlfriend/being on the NEWS AGAIN, Trump vs. NFL vs. First Amendment rights, how Toys R Us filed Chapter 11 (better article on that found from the angriest otaku out there), old and terrible podcasts, Cowboy Bebop vs. Outlaw Star, shootings in Tennessee, and Dustin trying to chime in while having the hiccups. Also this and more in this episode!
OP – Shibuya ROLL CALL!!!
