Podcast Special Feature: Q&A with a real Voice Actor (Ft. Brian Beacock)

You may know him better as Agumon (Digimon), Renzo Shima (Blue Exorcist), Ail (Sailor Moon R), Sakon and Ukon (Naruto video games), or even Lloyd from Tales of Symphonia. but Brian Beacock is his name. He came to town this past weekend for Superior Con—a small anime/video game/comic book convention that takes place at one of the local universities.

Superior Con

He spoke for close to an hour offering insight into the world of acting and voice over; it was a good presentation. I can share the whole thing if you all are interested, but here is a brief intro, and the Q&A session from the end of the presentation.

I have to clean up the Sound Cloud account, but the Anchor fm link is below.

Anime Podcast: Q&A with Brian Beacock

Goblin Slayer is graphic and that’s alright, right?


CrunchyRoll recently added a viewer discretion advisory to the beginning of Goblin Slayer. As previously discussed in the post below, this is a solution that informs viewers of potentially disturbing content, but allows them to decide for themselves whether or not to continue. They could specify that the advisory is for violent and sexual content if they wanted to take it a step further, but that isn’t really necessary.

Original Post

Just about every season, there’s at least one show that stirs up a bit of controversy for some reason or another. This time around, White Fox Studio’s Goblin Slayer is shaping up to be that point of contention. One episode in, the series follows Onna, a young priestess intent on becoming an adventurer. The RPG-esque premise and appearance is common enough, but the show’s graphic portrayal of sex and violence is causing a bit of an uproar within the anime-viewing community.

In this post, we’ll take a closer look at the controversy. This post contains images and subject matter that some readers may find disturbing and/or Not Safe For Work. Also, Spoiler Alert.

Megalo Box (Spring 2018)

Megalo Box

Megalo Box is a 50th anniversary reimagining of the Ashita no Joe manga series written by Asao Takamori. As an ultimately commemorative piece, the show is a nostalgia trip hearkening back to the style and presentation of late 1990’s anime. For some, this will be a big draw; others may find it too simple, and simply outdated.

Changes to the Podcast

I was hoping to finish out the Summer season before making any changes to the podcast, but some recent complications have necessitated that change sooner than expected.

The podcast will be shifting from the weekly release to a less-frequent format. This is to say new episodes will function more like previous Special Feature episodes, and serve complimentary to the blog.

Thank you for your continued support.

Anime Podcast S2 E7: A Time Turned Fragile

First, Derek explains why shouldn’t get too excited yet about the One Punch Man Season 2 announcement trailer.

Then, it’s the usual Week In Review with Attack on Titan, Overlord III, and Steins;Gate 0 followed by two important inquiries:

How does the growing popularity of anime influence they way studios greenlight and produce a series?

Are the changes ultimately sustainable?

Anime Podcast S2 E6: A Story That Explains Why Darling in the FranXX was a Narrative Mess

Pop Team Epic again somehow makes its way onto the show as we discuss the new Poputepipikku card game. Then, it’s the usual Week In Review with Attack on Titan, Overlord III, and SteinsGate;0.

Lastly, in a segment inspired by some recent discussion on the blog, Derek outlines a narrative about the production of Darling in the FranXX that may very well be more interesting (and believable) than the story of DarliFra itself.

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Weeabros Anime Podcast!
