Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes in their 30s talk about Japanese anime!
Listen to Season 3: Episode 3 – Gunmen Jacking
It’s another Bill and Andy solo episode. While Josh scares little children and gets paid for it for once, your other two hosts review the third episode of Gurren Lagann. Want to know something really scary? Bill has good things to say about it. Spooky, right? Check out our newest review of Episode 3, “Who Do You Think You Are, Having Two Faces!?”
Bill and Andy go it alone in their review of the second episode of Gurren Lagann. How will this review go without Josh there to sing the praises of this anime? Actually, they have a good talk about the depiction of LGBT characters in anime and break down the happenings of Episode 2, “I Said I’m Gonna Pilot That Thing!”
Well, we’ve put the new season off long enough. We’re back with a brand new season, which means a brand new anime! It’s Josh’s time to choose a show, and he’s picked the more recent anime Gurren Lagann. Bill and Andy have a rough time getting through this first episode, but the show has to get better, right? …Right?
If you thought last week was a departure, prepare to move completely away from the realm of animation into the drama and reality of The Newsroom. Yes, Andy’s pick for the final Summer Viewing Program is the HBO program that came from the political mind of Aaron Sorkin. Even if you’re not a fan of anime, give it a listen!
We’re on to Bill’s pick for our Summer Viewing Program series! This time we sneak away from anime all together to cover a western cartoon, Over the Garden Wall. Both Andy and Josh loved it, and the gang end up staying mostly on task and not as vulgar for once!
Thank you for being patient as we took last week off! We needed the extra time to get caught up, and now we have the first of three Summer Viewing Programming episodes! This week it’s Josh’s pick, and we’re watching Team Four Star’s Dragon Ball Z Abridged! Andy and Bill had some problems with it, but overall everyone seemed to enjoy it. Join us for our discussion of fan dubbing and our thoughts on the show. Also, can you guess how many times we hear the Josh Owned Counter?
