Brian has a new mixer, so we’re sounding better than last week. We add Magical Circle Guru Guru to the new anime we’re watching. Vatican Miracle Examiners continues to delight with its schlock. And we talk a lot about a blink and you’ll miss it scene that makes us question whether or not to continue with Made in Abyss. Plus, Stain lays out the law, Krillin takes to the spotlight, Nina and Jeanne go to heaven and Kanemori Steve’s dog tracks down Pascal.
Come along and hang with the Let’s Go Gang, as SOTSM and DITB team up to tackle Netflix Original anime, Little Witch Academia Season 1. At last! It’s an episode by episode run down of Akko’s antics at Luna Nova Witch Academy.
If it wasn’t for the need to keep the continuity of episodes we are covering up, I’d have skipped posting this. We had a bunch of audio problems and then further problems with the recordings. What we have left is the best I could put together. I’ve heard worse, but feel free to give it pass if it’s too annoying.
Anyway, we watched a bunch of new stuff like Vatican Miracle Examiners, Made in Abyss and Welcome to the Ballroom.
The moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. The Tournament of Power begins! Way back at the start of February, the Zen-Oh’s decided to have this tournament, and 20 episodes later the first punches are thrown. Meanwhile, Rage of Bahamut Virgin Soul reaches its mid-point as an ancient weapon is unleashed on the Gods. Tiger Mask W takes a victory lap and makes a back door pilot for Masked Tiger Springer. And we discuss the origins of folktales with this week’s Goma-chan.
Will it be third time lucky for a Gantz adaptation? We find out as we watch 2016’s GANTZ:O. Adapting the “Nurarihyon Alien Mission” arc into a one-off (?) CG movie, can they stay true to the heart of the comic, while making it accessible? Or will this miss the nihilistic magic of manga once again?
On this week’s Let’s Go! we take a walk in the rain with Goma-chan. We meet 70 characters who we hope will all eventually get names in Dragon Ball Super. The gang break out of jail in Rage of Bahamut. Tiger Mask W reaches a climax and we say farewell to The Laughing Salesman and the hapless invaders from Makeruna!! Aku no Gundan.
We lied, it’s not Gantz:O (that’s next week). Instead it’s two fools passing summary judgement on every anime they can find with a July start date. With little more than promo art, staff lists and a trailer or two to go on. It’s the return of the Dynamite In The Brain season preview~!
This week, Brian, Dwayne and Niall take a trip to the zoo with 100% Teacher Pascal, make deals with Goma-chan, go for a walk with Chipmunk’s Dad, become grandfathers with the Laughing Salesman, see quadruple with Tiger Mask and remember just how awful a person Frieza is. Plus, sports day is over in My Hero Academia and Nina & Jeanne make a break for it in Rage of Bahamut.
Today, we look at the Shonen Jump anime that led us from the 20th Century into the 21st Century. Then we decide which of them are famous. Helping us in that task are Niall and Dwayne from Secret of the Sailor Madness and Elliot from the UK Anime Network podcast.
An episode full of Brian goofing up! Wrong episodes watched, correct episodes we watched but Brian stormed straight past without reviewing, headphone problems, and more! In the shows we actually watched: Kanemori Steve is once again victim of the whims of 100% Teacher Pascal. The next arc starts before the last one has ended in My Hero Academia. Goku & Frieza get ready to team up. And most importantly of all, Fishing Cat is found.
