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.

Anime Podcast S2 E5 : Disgruntled Fanboys and the Issue of Making Changes to Source Material

First, we’ll take a look at Yahoo’s numbers on the “most searched” anime during the first half of the year.

Then, it’s Attack on Titan, Overlord III, and Steins;Gate 0 in the Week In Review.

Lastly, should a studio strive to remain as faithful as possible to the source material it’s adapting, or should they have the freedom to make changes? If so, what kind?

Anime Podcast S2 E4: Tanka Time

FINALLY, it’s time to talk Season 3 of Attack on Titan, but not before Chio’s School Road, Overlord III, and Steins;Gate 0. Then it’s tanka time, as Derek takes aim at the T.A.P. Challenge, and Shawn tries to guess the series. It doesn’t go as well as you’d think.

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

Anime Podcast S2 E1: Darling, I Need A Hiro

Then, it’s the weekly recap of Steins;Gate 0, followed by final thoughts on Darling in the FranXX.
