505 Naruto

Right click save to download the podcast.

Wow, guys, it’s another first time, because this week Pru and MK are joined by not only The Hoyden, but also by MK’s friend Paul, the first dude we’ve ever had on the podcast. We open with a quick discussion of Sailor Moon Crystal, Mythbusters, Fresh Off the Boat, and the Legend of Zelda Netflix show (confirmed after recording). For our longer discussion this week, we dip into one of the worst fandoms that all of us share: Naruto. Tune in to learn about why Naruto is the worst, how Kishimoto gave us all blue balls, and then listen to us struggle to figure out why Kakashi is so great. (Because he is. He is SO great.) It’s a dark day for fandom, so you might as well join us as we fail at everything.

Note: there is some construction noise in the background of this episode because fucking Toronto, of course there is. Sorry about that.

413 Sailor Moon with Lianne Sentar

Get ready for a moon escalation, because Pru left MK alone with Lianne Sentar of Sparkler Monthly this week, and the only thing on their minds was Sailor Moon. We talk about the manga, the anime, the new anime, and the live action drama all in the context of the female gaze, matriarchies, and gender and sexual queerness. If you thought transporting yourself back in time to the Moon Kingdom was hard just wait until you hear about our dumb struggles against the limitations of the 90s and early 00s. Whether you’re already a Sailor Moon fan or if you’re looking to pick up the new series, this episode has a lot of feelings for you.

Get ready to give up one of your eyeballs for someone you love, because this week we’re joined by The Hoyden for a special episode all about mangaka circle CLAMP. We’ll cover the highs and lows, from that dark, fucked up shit show that was x1999/Tokyo Babylon to the sugary sweetness of Cardcaptor Sakura. And yeah, we know: the ending of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles made no sense, but we’ll try to apply some logic to it anyway. So settle in with some snacks and the biggest bottle of sake you can get your hands on because it’s all fun and games until somebody murders your twin sister to show you how much they don’t care about you.

Maybe this year senpai will notice us! Or senpai will find this podcast episode where we talk about glowing fog penises and why you would ever want to microwave your manga collection and then ever speak to us again. This week we’re joined by one of our favourite guests, The Hoyden, as we go deep (so, so deep) into manga, doujinshi, scanlating, and yes, a little bit of anime. There’s no going back, but you should listen anyway.

This week, /report will be on the court, to discuss the colorful basketball geniuses of Kuroko no Basuke! Anna(AO3), Ghis (AO3), Lynn (AO3), Qem (AO3), Tari (AO3) and Tor (AO3) talk about why this shounen sports anime/manga ate their brains, the characters they love to mock, the many permutations of pairings possible, and all that is great about KnB fandom.

Prepare for neural handshake, listeners, because MK, Pru, and Merelyn (with a special appearance by Sir Not Appearing In This Film, Twentysomething) are talking about Pacific Rim. Fair warning: if you really liked this movie – this is not the podcast for you. We chat about what worked for us in the movie, what didn’t (a lot), and about all the Japanese mecha animes that are the cultural forebears of this flick.
