Season 6: Episode 8 – She Hairy

Listen to Season 6: Episode 8 – She Hairy

It’s a Bill and Andy episode! They review Episode 12 of Gungrave, “Kind.” Sadly, they both aren’t too kind to the content of this one. We skip ahead in time yet again, and the events of this episode are mostly filler. At least there’s still some really good conversation to be had!

Listen to Bonus Episode: Happy Holidays 2020

I cannot believe that we have finally reached the end of 2020 after the last 27 months. Well, it’s felt that long, at least. We have a couple of fun games as well as gift giving. Speaking personally (it’s Andy btw), despite how bad 2020 has been, I am thankful for everything that we have managed to accomplish still this year. And we are all thankful for you, the fans, who continue to listen to us and support our show. Here’s to a hopefully brighter 2021.

Listen to Season 6: Episode 6 – Strangely Angry

This week marks the beginning of an awesome story arc! Episode 9, “Dispute,” introduces us to the rough and tumble Blood War. Maybe Bill is right about these names.

Brandon and Harry step forward to put a stop to this maniac, but will they be able to stop a plan that involves bringing the dead to life?

Season 6: Episode 4 – Be My Big Daddy

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes in their 30s talk about Japanese anime!

Listen to Season 6: Episode 4 – Be My Big Daddy

Who’s your daddy? Your Big Daddy that is. Fans, we have a blast talking about this week’s review, which is a solo episode this time around. We review the amazingly titled Episode 6 of Gungrave, “Big Daddy.” Brandon and Maria want to get close, but there’s only one thing in the way: an angry mob boss. It’s a classic story of boy meets girl, girl goes to live with a crime lord, boy fishes with crime boss, boy and crime boss eat girl’s pie. You’ll have to listen to this week’s episode to find out just what is going on in this anime.
