Season 8: Episode 2 – Tummy Faces

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

Listen to Season 8: Episode 2 – Tummy Faces

Well, we have another episode of FLCL to talk about and go onto weird side tangents. If this show is good for anything thus far, it’s been their weird references to other things, such as Robot Detective K, which might be Andy’s new favorite thing. This episode involves arson and another head robot. So basically much of the same. Join us for our review of Episode 2, “Fire Starter.”

Season 8: Episode 1 – Automated Handroid [FLCL]

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

Listen to Season 8: Episode 1 – Automated Handroid

It’s Season 8, baybee! We’ve come around to Bill’s next pick, FLCL! The crew of Bill, Matt, and Andy dive into the deep end of craziness as they review the very first episode of the OVA, “Fooly Cooly.” This is normally the part where we give a short summary of what to expect, but if you have seen FLCL before, you know that’s pretty impossible. The music is good at least! Enjoy!

Listen to Summer Viewing Program: Letterkenny

Welcome back to another Summer Viewing Program! For those new to this series, we take a break between seasons to watch and talk about something that each host wants the other two to experience.

It’s Bill’s week, so of course we’re not talking about anime. This time around we visit the small town of Letterkenny and learn all about their problems. It’s kind of hard to describe the show if you haven’t seen it, but we do our absolute best. At least it isn’t Tiger King this year. Enjoy!

Summer Viewing Program: Saban Moon [American Sailor Moon Pilot]

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

Listen to Summer Viewing Program: Saban Moon [American Sailor Moon Pilot]

Welcome back to another Summer Viewing Program! For those new to this series, we take a break between seasons to watch and talk about something that each host wants the other two to experience.

This week is more than just a regular summer viewing. Today we discuss a recently uncovered piece of anime history. For those that have not heard, the fabled American pilot for Sailor Moon, dubbed “Saban Moon” by many, finally found the light of day thanks to the tireless work of Ray Mona. Both a music video and pilot emerged, and the anime world saw a glimpse of what could have been. Andy had to talk about this, and the cast did! Join us for an insane look at a very, very bad pilot of an Americanized version of Sailor Moon.

Here’s the content by Ray Mona that we discussed throughout this episode: Official Saban Moon Pilot Episode (1994) | Saban Moon Pilot Opening Intro (1994) | The Western World of Sailor Moon [Documentary Part 1] | Finding Saban Moon: The Western World of Sailor Moon [Documentary Part 2]

We gave Matt the green light to pick our first piece of media to review, and in typical Matt fashion, he has chosen something anime related. Not just something anime, but one of the highest rated anime films of all time. Yes, this week we are jumping between bodies as we experience the acclaimed film, Your Name.
