Mars of Destruction Live Commentary Podcast

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 Because this was uploaded a handful of weeks after it was recorded, an out-of-date recap on our thoughts of this summer’s shows is included afterward.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.

The Annual Anime Awards – 2014

Hey, everyone! Sorry we’ve been a little slow in such a busy time of the year. Instead of running down the year’s best shows on a show-by-show basis, we thought of something a little more unique. A little more flashy. A little more fun to do. Yes, that’s right, Haru and Yata have come up with 33 categories and brainstormed who and what deserve these prestigious (?) anime-related awards from the year 2014. There are a lot of repeated winners – after all, this is to recognize what we thought were the best of the best and the worst of the worst, and as the saying goes, the cream rises to the top.  We agree a lot, though occasionally we felt it necessary to deviate from each others’ opinions. Below are our award winners and explanations. Have a blast reading, and if you’d like, feel free to comment with your own winners.
