Happy Holidays! Bit of a slow news week because of the holidays but thats ok. Today we mention some upcoming anime, DB Super movies box office slam, Cosplay for your pets, and the passing of Toshiko Fujita; the voice actress of the iconic character Taichi Yagami from the Digimon series.
I dont EVEN know what to write for this description. This is just to tie you guys over while we take the week off. Kwoka farted and Nick ruins everything and Som hypotheticals people in their clavicles and Dannie doesnt like Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

NEEEWWEEOOOOOWWWOOWWOWSSSS. Here is the first episode of our Newscast! Since we took out the news from our regular podcast this is how we are going to bring you the news from now! This way we can give better takes on current anime news and optimize our time on our regular eps for the main topics. Let us know what you guys think!
Episode 178: You gave Darling in the Franxx a 9? You have horrible taste! Is what they say to Som because she gave Darling in the Franxx a high score on MAL. Using the MAL Graph app we dissect and roast each others graph results...AND MANIME MATT JOINS THE FRAY. Show us your results! https://graph.anime.plus
Episode 177: Have you gone through your MyAnimeList lately? We did and we found some under appreciated hidden gems that we want to recommend to YALL. Going by some guidelines, we try to find anime that we consider hidden gems in a overflowing sea of anime. Did we forget mention one that you consider to be a hidden gem? Let us know!
Episode 176: Of course to follow up our review of the original FLCL, we had to of course review the two new short seasons, FLCL: Progressive and FLCL: Alternative. Its weird because this seemed like something we all wanted but then when we got it, we weren't as excited about it; and then when we saw it we figured out why we weren't. Haruko still best grill though.
Episode 175: Remember that one time when Dannie guested on our podcast and reviewed Netflix's Castlevania with us? Well now we GOTTA do a review for the second season obviously. Som reveals her power level of fandom of Castlevania which we find out isn't as high as we thought but still 10x higher then Nick's power level because he thinks Castlevania is Metroid and only heard the song "Bloody Tears" like JUST now. Thanks again to Kai for joining us!
Episode 174: I am so sorry that we have to do this to yall with the current season going strong already BUT WE HAVE TO GET OUR FIRST IMPRESSIONS IN. So with Dannie back we re-record the rest of our 1st Impressions. Thanks to everyone for being so patient with us. you guys are seriously awesome. This episode we cover Run With The Wind, SAO, Zombie Land Saga and others.
Episode 173: Ok so if you follow us on social media or Discord you know that YA GURL FUCKED UP. So this is the first part of Fall Season 2018 1st Impressions part 2...or rather what I could salvage of it. Go ahead and skip the first 4 or 5 minutes or so to get right to the podcast and skip my explanation of why I am bad at everything. Please dont leave a bad Yelp review or else we're screwed. Its Nick's fault. I love you. In this part we cover Juliet Boarding School, Conception, and Double Decker..We will be recording the rest of our thought in a free for all ep next week. I promise that I will personally make it up to you whether the other hosts are part of it or not.
Episode 172: Fall season! The leaves are on the ground and its cold as a witches titty outside (For some of us anyway). In the beginning of this episode we explain how we are doing our seasonal reviews so you should let us know how you like it. We go over Goblin Slayer, SSSS.Gridman, Reincarnated as a Slime, and some others! What are you guys liking so far this season?
Episode 171: We in the spoopy season now! Pumpkins, Monsters, and VAMPIRES! In this episode we talk about the highly rated show Shiki. The small town of Sotoba appears to be going through a mysterious epidemic after some sus AF looking people move into the mansion in the small town. It turns out that everyone is Count Chocula and they finna turn your ass.
Episode 170: We are in the middle of Spooptober which means were gonna pull out (LOL) the erotic horror anime Legend of the Overfiend and review it. I am not sure whats more scary though...the demons raping literally everyone or the fact that this exists. Honestly there is something to be said about the unsettling nature of these Adult stories though. Think of it as a Violentsploitation B movie or something...You know what I don't know it was just REALLY weird and gross.
Episode 169: In the style of the show Shark Tank, each of us comes up with an idea for an anime show and we pitch it to the other hosts to see if the other hosts will give their billion dollars per episode to that show for a stake in the company...I mean show. Look just give us a billion dollars and we will at least come up with a better show then like...Neo Yokio ok?
Episode 168: Summer is officially over and with that we come to the end of the Summer Season of Anime for 2018. A lot of this season some shows REALLY stood out from the rest. So much so that we thought "suugggooooiiiiiiiiiiyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyiyiiioyiiii"
What were your favorites this season?

From the remnants of Studio Ghibli comes Studio Ponoc and their first feature film, "Mary and the Witch's Flower". We all watched the film and give our reviews on the film and delve just a bit if it was a good launch for the new studio that was born from previous Ghibli employees.
**EMOTIONAL** Just kidding just kidding. But on this ep we revisit Anime Summit Podcast episode 42. We talk about things we've learned from anime and talk about some shit that we believe are take aways from characters we've come to love.
HOST SWAP! We gotta make sure Dannie gets to swap a show with everyone. Last time she swapped Princess Jellyfish with Nick's Baccano!
This time around she traded Paradise Kiss for Kwoka's Cromartie High School! Honestly both of these shows were pretty cool and we recommend that you give them a watch!
Halfway through Summer and so far all we have learned is how allergies work. We go through the Summer season for our mid impressions and tell you what we have dropped, have put on hold, and what we are enjoying the most! What's everyone else watching?
Of course us hosts are only human and can only consume so much anime in our free time. But what are some anime that you think people should see before they die?

We take a look at Key Visuals and the cover arts on MyAnimeList and talk about how we often judge them by their covers to pick what we want to watch. How do you pick what you want to watch besides the PV? Then we also use MAL to play a game at the end!
SUMMER SEASON 2018! Its way too fucking hot outside so we are staying inside to watch Summer Season Anime...ALL FOR YOU. We go through most of the shows and let you know what we like, dont like, and what we just plain didn't understand.

WHAT A SEASON! Megaloboxing, Klaxosaurs, and psycho kinetic power wielding girls. This season was TRULY fun and had a nice handful of decent shows in it; of course along with a handful of "meh" shows but nothing truly that terrible! Unless you hated Darling in the FranXX which you probably did.
What were your favorite shows this season?
If you were given a HUGE mountain and you were told to carve FOUR things that represent FOUR shows that are monumental to Anime Entertainment, what would you carve? At first Som said Nadesico then everyone took a shot so we were like "Nah."
Join the Summit crew and try to figure out what would be the Mount Rushmore of Anime. What Anime shows/franchises do you think were monumental to the industry and Anime as we know it?
We know its just by popularity...but yall still WRONG! In all seriousness we check out the Top 100 TV anime series on MyAnimeList and try and see if we feel the same way. We break it down and tell you why your favorite shows suck. If you disagree? Well thats just like.. your opinion, man.
Its time to talk about what is known to be a cult classic and even a timeless anime: FLCL aka Fooly Cooly/Furi Kuri...What does Fooly Cooly mean to anime, what does it mean to us, and actually what does the term itself FOOLY COOLY mean? Listen and find out with Nick, Som, and Dannie!
Nick, Som, and Dannie go back in time on the Nostalgia Hype train and reminisce about the time when the afternoon Toonami Block played on Cartoon Network. We then try to tackle the idea of coming up with our own Toonami block to pitch it to the Execs upstairs! What would you put on Toonami if they brought the afternoon block back today?
Here we go again with one of our favorite guests! Tony AKA Black Critic Guy! Hes back to join us and talk about anime and unpopular opinions we have in the anime world! And at the end a bonus where the 4 of us play a game. Have fun!

Today we have a cosplay spotlight! In are first ep covering Cosplay we talk with Discord member Heather! She loves cosplay and loves making costumes..She tells us why she loves anime and loves to go to conventions in costume! Let us know if you like these! Should we have more cosplayers on?
Spring is here! We are a couple of weeks late on this one but here we have our first Impressions of what we believe to be so far a pretty awesome Season for Anime. This ones a long one as we go over all of the awesome sequels, the reboots, and cat face johnsons.
How was anime consumed back in the day? Som's cousin Mario tells us tales from Suncoast Video Store and how bootlegs got him through the times before we had the Internet tools and sites that gave us all access to anime today; and also finally the myth of how "My Cousin" Mario turned Som into the Otaku that she is today.
Hi everyone! So due to Nick being sick...we had to move some topics around and do this ep last minute...we rather bring you content then none at all..So Som and Dannie decide to hang out and just talk about whats going on in their lives with Anime...and a Q/A session at the last 20 minutes. We will back with normal schedule next week!
Here it is yall.. The last of our Ghibli Review series...its been fun! And we of course will still revisit other associated works..

This review includes "The Tale of Princess Kaguya" .. "When Marnie Was There" .. and a short bonus review of the documentary "The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness"
This is on EVERY Otaku's minds. Theres that list in all of our minds of anime that couldve been done better, ended better, or it just DIDNT end and it needs an end! Or we just want to see it again!
Whats on your Sequels/Reboots/Remake Wishlist? Dannie and Som go through their wish lists!

But since we were behind it was done kind of out of order...Please look forward to it all going back to normal and back on track after this episode. Today we discuss Mid Fall Impressions!

We shall sing songs of the day we recorded this... No but seriously, we chat with Matt, ask him some shit, then talk about how weekly releases vs bulk release effects our perceptions of anime viewing... By a fireplace, adorned with pictures of Terry Crews... with wood floors and maybe a hunting trophy or two.
(Nick was the genius that came up with the title for this episode) What are feels? Does it matter that Length time Diameter plus Weight over Girth divided by Angle of the tip squared isn't always the result you wanted? How about lewd hand holding?
