It’s hard to believe we’ve already been at this thing for an entire season, but with the end of the Spring season comes the end of the first season of the Weeabros show. I think every show has a good moment or two, but here are the links to some of my favorite episodes from Season One.
It’s the Season One Finale!
We’ll start with the Week In Review and final thoughts on Megalo Box. Then we dissect the anatomy of a really, really good scene during our review of Violet Evergarden. Lastly it’s the Last-Minute Sampler where we’ll preview several of the series starting up this season.
All that and more right now on The Weeabros Anime Podcast.
Week In Review/ Final Thoughts on Megalo Boxstarts at 3:03
Violet Evergarden review is at 20:40
Summer Preview begins at 35:03
Shawn worked a double shift yesterday and didn’t get around to finishing Violet Evergarden. So, that gets pushed back to next week. In the meantime, though, the Weeabros discuss which Spring Season series they missed out on that they’d still like to watch. Then, it’s the weekly recap of Megalo Box, Steins;Gate 0, and Darling in the FranXX. Oh, also more talk of Steins;Gate 0 bewbs, but no one watches anime for that, right?
We embark on our anime fitness journeys, and Pop Team Epics makes it to Cartoon Network’s late night line up. Then, we’ll talk Steins;Gate 0, and Megalo Box before Shawn shares another one of his bold predictions, this time for Darling in the FranXX (he’s been surprisingly accurate so far).
In the final segment, we consider which anime worlds we’d happily be a part of, and which ones we wouldn’t.
Week In Review starts around 6:37. Our discussion about which anime worlds we’d want/wouldn’t want to be a part of begins at 33:05.
Our heroes start with their thoughts on the growing number of anime showings in theaters. Then, it’s talk of Darling in the FranXX, Steins;Gate 0, and Megalo Box in the Week In Review, followed by Another analysis from Vault of Series Past.
It’s all that and a bucket of popcorn on this week’s installment of The Weeabros Anime Podcast.
Week In Review starts at 3:14. Vault of Series Past begins at 23:45.
*Final Update* 6/8:
Valve recently released an update on the situation. The whole thing is a pretty interesting read, but long story short, they’ve finally made up their mind to keep the games on the platform, but give users more filter options over what they see and don’t see in the store. They’re also going to try to improve quality and content control, which may vary depending on the region.
As of 5/22:
1) The games in question are currently under “re-review” by Steam. The previous ultimatum was lifted, but there’s no indication yet as to whether or not Valve will follow through with its intent to censor/remove certain types of games on Steam.
2) It came to light there is an advocacy group that’s been pressuring Valve/Steam to remove such content for some time now. Formerly known as Morality in Media, the group changed its name to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation about three years ago. It’s unclear, though, if they’re the primary reason for the recent notices to developers.
We are amidst the aftermath of some breaking news regarding Steam and its possible censorship/removal of several games. In this Special Feature, Derek is joined by Manaban, a Moderator for the MAL Harem and Ecchi Club.
Manaban shares his thoughts on the contextualization of sexually suggestive games, and why they may be censored differently than other types of games that feature more sexually explicit content (sexually suggestive games and visual novels vs games like Witcher 3, and GTA).
Who determines what gets censored and when?
Are violent content and sexual content held to different standards of censorship?
We’ll attempt to tackle these questions and more right now on Weeabros Anime Podcast!
Is Saitama’s workout regimen in One Punch Man really the secret to immense strength and speed?
Is the exercise routine outlined in Hajime no Ippo actually a good start to get you into boxing shape?
What kind of conditioning would it take to enter the Survey Corps or Garrison?
Stephen and Duffy from Real Anime Training have answers to these and more right now on The Weeabros Anime Podcast!
We’ll start with a look at the most popular Spring series throughout the United States, followed by the Week In Review, and our list of “the best special moves or abilities in anime”.
Week In Review starts at 5:40
Our lists of the best special moves/abilities begins at 20:10
Posting last night’s show again with slightly better audio.
Join the Weeabros for a peek at some new Attack on Titan lingerie, followed by recaps and speculation for Space Battleship Tiramisu, Steins;Gate 0, Megalo Box, and Darling in the FranXX. Lastly, we’ll review No Game No Life in the Vault of Series Past.
Week In Review starts at 3:10. Vault of Series Past starts at 23:14.
We’ll start the usual Week In Review with Megalo Box and Steins;Gate 0. Then, Derek has an idea as to what is actually going on right now in Darling in the FranXX. In the final segment, we’ll entertain a very interesting hypothetical: You can summon any anime character to help you save or destroy the world. Who do you bring, and why?
Hear our thoughts in addition to thoughts from the MAL community right now on this week’s episode of The Weeabros Anime Podcast.
Week In Review starts at about the 3:15 mark. Who You Got? starts at 25:50.
