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?
Episode 167: ITS FOOTBALL SEASON! Nick wants us to do this because WERE GOING TO PLAY SOME GOOD OLD FASHIONED FOOTBALL...Even though Nick's teams is complete BS and RUINS A PERFECTLY GOOD GAME OF FOOTBALL. FOOTBALL!! AHHHH!!
Episode 166: Live action anime movies? Gotta ask...why are these a thing? Especially recently in Japan they are popping up like daisies every couple of month. AND DONT GET ME STARTED ON GHOST IN THE SELL AGAIN. (See: Anime Summit Podcast with BlackCriticGuy) Do we are about these as anime fans though? Are they even good? Find out on the Live Action Edition of Anime Summit Podcast: The Movie
Now on Anchor FM
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 talk about what anime we all think should be on that catalog. What do you think us hosts should see that we haven't yet that are anime we NEED to see before we leave this world?
This week we show appreciation to Som the Bomb, the turkey tom, the mom. Shes been with us since the beginning and why the fuck not. Please enjoy this for fun episode appreciating Som with us as we grill her about anime, cats, and how she was born in 1990. #LetsFart
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.
IT'S SEASON FOUR BITCHES!!
For our premiere we talk about Anime Expo 2018 and talk about where we were 3 years ago at the birth of Anime Summit...Of course the only way to do that properly is having our guest be...
But in all seriousness; THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. We are going to keep going until we no longer can. Your support has been amazing. HERES TO ANOTHER YEAR AND ANOTHER SEASON OF ANIME SUMMIT! #SexySummitSquad
Here is a fun episode while Nick recovers from AX 2018 and Kwoka gets back in the swing of things. We ask Kwoka about Korea and answer listener questions too. We are happy he's back but at the same time praying that we don't get any more Kimi No Na Wa Updates. Welcome back ya ass
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!
How is your Spring going? Ours is a bit overwhelming! So many shows...But for our mid impressions we fuck around and talk shit once again and let you guys know what we dropped and picked up so far this season.
HOST SWAP! Havent done one of these in awhile! This time Nick and Dannie trade shows: Nick hands Dannie Baccano! and Dannie gives him Princess Jellyfish. Give MANLY MAN Nick some girly gender bending shit every once in awhile nomsayin?
CUE THE MUSIC! A good soundtrack will power the visual entertainment we are enjoying. In this case its Anime! Here are some of our favs because we thought it powered the anime perfectly..or it was just because we liked the music!
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.. For now...please enjoy our final part in our Studio Ghibli Review...Shout out to our host Nick for suggesting this idea and taking us on this crazy journey of awesome Anime films. 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!
What up dope fresh Summit Squad! Are you guys still watching this season? Som thinks this season is weird so far; but her opinion doesnt matter cuz shes a filthy casual and Nick has superior taste, and Dannie has a fanny. Darling in the FranXX sucks ok?

A fictional account set in the actual account of Hiroshima Japan before and after the drop of Atomic Bomb during World War II. Exploring themes and the style and the execution of this realistic adaptation of the popular manga!

Danielle has been an Otaku since a young age like the rest of us and we are excited to have her as a new host and help us further the life of our podcast! So for the first episode of the year its all about DANNIE!
DISCLAIMER: This was recorded before the Thanksgiving Episode. 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?
