Sorry, gotta get this out there first: Kizumonogatari is coming out on January 8th! I repeat, everyone, Kizumonogatari is coming out on January 8th! The sequel prequel the world’s been waiting for years for is now finally upon us. Shinbo’s not fucking around anymore, I can’t make “Jenny SHAFT when?” jokes now, and for once, it looks like if the PV is any indication, all will be right in the world.
In this brief break between coverage of 2015’s summer and fall anime seasons, we bring to you one hell of a podcast. In every medium, there are great things, alright things, and terrible things. Every once in a while, one of those terrible things gains notoriety for being unintentionally hilarious. In anime’s case, Mars of Destruction is something of a cult classic. Its try-hardiness, complete lack of sense, and poor budget make it stand out as one of the worst anime (though it’s really just a 19-minute OVA) ever produced. And in the midst of one of the weakest anime seasons in recent memory, I guess we felt the need to remind ourselves that hey, at least the shows we didn’t care for weren’t Mars of Destruction-tier bad.
What follows is a live audio commentary of all three of us watching the remarkable shit stain that is Mars of Destruction. You can follow along by watching this and syncing the video up to our in-podcast countdown. Because this was uploaded a handful of weeks after it was recorded, an out-of-date recap on our thoughts of this summer’s shows is included afterward. Let’s just say some of them changed considerably. (cough Charlotte ಠ_ಠ)
Have a blast, folks. Fall first impressions will be out soon enough.
