Season 5: Episode 2 – Wyatt Earf

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

Listen to Season 5: Episode 2 – Wyatt Earf

The crew is back together once again to talk about the second episode of One Punch Man! This time around we are introduced to a brand new character, Genos, who is a robot man looking for a master to train him. There’s also a giant mosquito lady, a menagerie of beastmen, and a mad scientist with hundreds of clones! Why did I re-read this in the voice of Excel? Must be beacuse it’s Jessica Calvello’s birthday today (Go tell her happy birthday on Twitter!). Anywho, let’s wind up and punch our way through Episode 2 of One Punch Man, “The Lone Cyborg.”

Listen to Bonus Episode: Patreon Preview – Sailor Moon Episode 21

Andy is on his way out of town tomorrow, so instead of a new One Punch Man review, enjoy this episode from our vast Patreon bonus episode archive! In this episode, Bill and Andy talk through and review an episode of Sailor Moon, entitled “Protect the Children’s Dreams: Friendship Through Anime.” Also, since this episode is about an animation studio, do the right thing and donate to Kyoto Animation’s GoFundMe if you have the means! Enjoy this, and we’ll be back next week with a brand new One Punch Man review!

Season 4: Episode 23 – Full of Poison

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

Listen to Season 4: Episode 23 – Full of Poison

Sorry, we forgot to post last week’s episode here! So here you go!

Andy may be exhausted from spending his whole day creating the new Tooning RPG episode (link below) and this episode, but if there are any night owls out there, check this one out! Andy and Bill (and again, briefly Josh) break down the very last episode of Wolf’s Rain, which is creatively titled “Wolf’s Rain.” Again, the OVA proves to be extremely dark and extremely confusing. That said, it’s really a unique and intriguing end to the series. To find out each of our thoughts, give it a listen!
