Great minds think alike
Join us for our first tri-continental podcast, as RC strikes a blow against the tyranny of distance.
It was my pleasure to slide back into the host’s seat (I’m not paying to have those beer stains cleaned, Mister) for a spur-of-the-moment podcast. Joining me from California is Kairi, and from Scotland Samu.
Apologies if you were expecting more bloodshed, but the fact it that the three of us tend to agree an awful lot when it comes to anime-related topics (such is the curse of impeccable taste). If we’d kept the tape rolling we could have had about three more podcasts worth of lavishing praise on series we all love (that, and giving Samu grief about his “plan to watch” list).
- Kairi – @Okaeri_Kairi, MAL profile
- Guardian Enzo – @GuardianEnzo, Anime-Planet profile, lostinanime.com
- Samu – @its_samu, MAL profile
We cast a wide net with a very spontaneous conversation. Among the catch:
00:00 – Intro – What superpower would you choose?
05:30 – Underrated Spring shows
- Kairi – Akatsuki no Yona
- Samu – Shirobako
- Enzo – Tribe Cool Crew
- Plus: Animator working conditions, the stigma of shoujo and kids shows, and “What makes a harem show a harem show?”
13:48 – In praise of Akatsuki no Yona
22:17 – World Trigger is better than it gets credit for
27:58 – Sanzoku no Musume Ronja, Sidonia no Kishi and CGI
31:40 – What Fall show would you rather have your eyes poked out with yakatori skewers than watch?
- Enzo – Cross Ange
- Samu – Trinity Seven (sorry, Stilts-chama) and Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu
- Kairi – Twintails
34:30 – Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso post-mortem
47:40 – Koe no Katachi adaptation discussion
51:45 – Kairi tries in three minutes or less to convince Samu to watch Eureka Seven
54:58 – Samu tries in three minutes or less to convince Kairi to watch Game of Thrones
58:50 – If you could tell the anime industry to start doing one thing and stop doing one thing, what would they be?
63:00 – “Stilts and Zanibas walk into a bar…”
65:00 – Dealer’s Choice
- Kairi – Pokemon and a slightly creepy story of generosity
- Samu – Ano-hana love
68:05 – Wrap-up/shout-outs
71:10 – He has spoken!
A special congrats to Samu, who in his very first podcast won the “make Xumbra talk” sweepstakes.
