Episode 14 – Make Like a Tree, And Die Hijikata

20 Apr


Its finally here! Our first year anniversary podcast is finally here and we have a full crew! On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton, Jasmine, and Jon are joined by their friend Jay (from Episode 1) and special guest Lia (from Episode 7), “number one” fan of the podcast. This cast of colorful, cartoon characters finally come together in the same room to record a podcast and talk about a bunch of things and stuff, such as, Gintoki in J-Stars Victory Versus for the PS3, the recent Shonen Jump Character Election results and even a few announcements (some podcast related, some personal).

After that, the crew covers Chapter 17 of the manga and the hijinks that ensue between the Odd Jobs and Shinsengumi, followed by a very short Life Lessons segment and Anime/Manga Comparison segment covering the 2005 Gintama Jump Anime Tour Special. Other special guest, JD Banks, stops by for a bit to talk about her Manga Corner podcast and her experience with Gintama. Then the crew comes back to reminisce about the past year recording the podcast and to read comments, questions and emails (for once) and ending the show shortly after.

Thank you to everyone for listening to us for the past year and a very special thank you to Lia and JD Banks for coming on. Enjoy another long episode and hopefully many more!
