Ikari Strain #3: How Long is Too Long of an Anime Series?
In this episode, Sanjo-chan talks about the ideal episode length of an anime series. We have the common 12 episode anime length as an "entry level", followed by the 24 episode variety (or 12 episodes split into two parts). Lastly, we have the uncommon 52 episode offerings. But when one should be considered lucky if their favorite anime are either Dragon Ball, Naruto, and One Piece from the very beginning. "Ikari Strain" are special episodes within the Centaku Media Podcast where one topic is chosen and ripped apart in criticism in hopes of reaching those who can relate to the problems riddled within. Show Notes Addendums: Apologies in advance! I was so excited and recorded this episode on a whim, so there are a few inaccuracies when the episode counts are mentioned. However, this is what the show notes are for! While it may be an episode or two off, these are meant to prove the point of the discussion. Danganronpa: 13 episodes instead of 12 mentioned Cowboy Bebop: 26 episodes instead of 24 mentioned Fullmetal Alchemist (2003): there are 51 episodes total Dragon Ball (franchise): if you add Dragon Ball (153 episodes), Z (291 episodes), and Super (131 episodes), there are a total of 575 episodes One Piece: the previously aired episode was #981 by the time of recording (7/6/2021), confirming the mentioned count Have questions about the podcast?

Centaku Media Journal - Episode #1: Pokémon Journeys, Tokyo Game Show, Stray Kids (+ more)
Trying something new for the podcast, although this is not entirely new. The "Centaku Media Journal" has been seen through a couple of formats: published on the original blog as "The CEN.TAKU.ME Journal", as well as attempted for opening our weekly gaming livestreams. This will be a feature published on a bi-weekly basis to accompany the monthly episodes, highlighting the latest news in the anime, gaming, and Japanese and Korean entertainment industries. This way the main episodes won't be as long as the pilot episode. 😆 In this episode: a character from Pokémon: Sword/Shield will be introduced in the Pokémon Journeys anime, the future of Tokyo Game Show 2020, and Stray Kids to make Japanese debut with anime theme songs.
