Andy is headed to Gen Con in Indianapolis this weekend, so our final discussion of Neon Genesis Evangelion will be pushed back a week. Until then, enjoy one of our Tooning In episodes, our Patreon mini-series where we discuss the first episode of an anime series. This episode features the classic board game commercial show, After School Dice Club. It’s Andy’s pick. Blame him.
Today we released our 50th bonus episode on our Patreon! To celebrate this milestone, we decided to dive deep into the brand new Trigun Stampede teaser trailer that recently released. We discuss everything we know about the upcoming series, a discussion of its visual style, and a breakdown of the entire trailer.
If you liked what you heard here, go listen and watch the rest of this episode and get all kind of other content,become a Patron today! You’ll gain access to all these bonus episodes, our Tooning In series, and other great rewards!
Season 7 will be our review of the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion! E-mail the show at TooningJapanese@gmail.com!
Things have been crazy busy lately. To make up for our lack of posting episodes on time, here’s a bonus episode of bloopers! We’ll have one final set of bloopers from Season 2 left. These come from Episodes 15-20 of our Trigun reviews.
Surprise! We’re a day early! And we’re back to our reviews of Gurren Lagann! This week we have one of the most important episodes of the series, and it’s one that doesn’t inherently anger both Bill and Andy. Well, maybe a little bit. Episode 8, “Later Buddy,” may not be Trigun-level storytelling, but it’s a fond way to say farewell to one of the hosts’ favorite characters.
We’re back! This week we have…well…woof. Being completely honest, it’s not a great episode of Gurren Lagann, and even Josh agrees with Bill and Andy this time. Get your towels because it’s a bath house episode meets a clip episode in Episode 6, “Sit in the Hot Tub ‘Till You’re Sick!!”
Josh is back! We celebrate by reviewing easily the worst episode of Gurren Lagann yet. Even Josh hates this one. It also made for a pretty short discussion, so we’re sorry about that! Come listen to our quick chat on Episode 4, “Having Lots of Faces Doesn’t Make You Great!”
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!”
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!
