We’re back with more Gungrave! We are SO EXCITED for this season that we decided to talk about TWO EPISODES! Yes, this week the full crew talks about Episode 2 of Gungrave, “Young Dogs,” and Episode 3, “Rain.” If you thought the first episode of the series was too gun crazy, then you’re in luck. We slow things down and go back to a simpler time before whatever apocalypse ravaged the landscape and littered it with orgman. In these two episodes we are introduced to a younger Brandon and Harry as they fight for survival with their gang of friends. And I’m sure nothing tragic will happen to thrust these two into a life of organized crime. Right?
Yeah, we know it’s October. However, this episode was supposed to be part of our Summer Viewing before we started Season 6. What with Global Warming and living in the Midwest, what even are seasons anyway? We’re so excited to bring on one of our favorite people and podcast hosts, Yata from My Anime Podcast! This week we dive into the first three episodes of Mob Psycho 100, and man, did we all have an absolute (psychic) blast. We bet you will, too! At least, we read your minds and saw that you did…or will? Being an esper is hard work.
Season 6 is here! Before you listen, we want to thank you all for your continued support over the years. We love getting to just sit down and talk about and dissect some of our favorite anime. Some of them are super popular newer anime like One Punch Man and Gurren Lagaan. Others were classics like Trigun and Wolf’s Rain. And there was Excel Saga, too! Thank you for taking this journey with us!
This week we start our deep dive into the, perhaps lesser known classic, Gungrave. In this first episode we are introduced to our protagonist, Brandon Heat. And he’s packing some major heat as much of the episode is him gunning down weird white creatures called orgman. The first episode of the anime wasn’t great, but it gets a heck of a lot better starting at episode 2. Join Andy, Bill, and Josh (gasp!) for the start of our brand new season!
