Episode 46 – Two More Years (Parts 1&2)

25 Apr

naka

On this episode of Life Lessons, its our third anniversary, and King Recon comes on the show once again to help cover Chapter 66 of the manga, in which the Odd Jobs get a new neighbor. Afterwards, Colton talks about Lesson 66 in the Life Lessons segment, followed by an Anime/Manga Comparison segment of Episode 47 of the anime.

The episode features an interview with Niente de Nada, the occasional ghost contributor to the podcast that Colton and Josh Dunham have mentioned and praised a ton in the past! She is also a very active member of the Gintama fan community who is seemingly the most knowledgeable of the real Japanese history that makes up the foundation of Gintama. The interview also features a few stories about a few different historical figures in which a majority of the cast are based on, so don’t miss it! Special thanks to Nada especially for coming on the show (links to her stuff and things are located in the show notes below).

In Part 2 of the episode, King Recon is still around to help Colton read the massive amount of emails, questions and comments that you, the listeners, have sent in for us to read on the podcast! It is quite literally our longest feedback segment ever recorded and released, including discussion of our favorite Gintama opening and ending themes, ideas on how to introduce new people to the series, and the multiple reasons why Gintama isn’t as popular overseas.

We want to thank everyone for all of the feedback they’ve sent into the show. It was a lot fun recording this and answering people’s emails.

Special thanks to everyone who has ever contributed or listened to the podcast over the past year, we couldn’t have done it without you! Enjoy!!

Special thanks to Nada especially for coming on the show (links to her stuff and things are located in the show notes below).

This episode also marks the first episode to ever be released in two separate releases. Thats right, this episode was so long and so many people were asking for it, that it was decided that it’d be best to release half of it a bit early. The feedback segment for this episode was ESPECIALLY huge, so that other half of the episode (Part 2) will be released this Monday, April 18th, so look forward to it!

We’ll say it again, but thank you to everyone for listening to Life Lessons for however long you’ve been listening, we appreciate all of your support and hope to keep this up for many years to come, now enjoy the first half of the episode!

Episode 32 – Characters With Scars On Their Face Are Always Cool

9 Apr

yorozuya

Its here! Its finally here!! Its the 2nd anniversary of Life Lessons: The Gintama Manga Cast, and on this episode, its just Colton and Jay this time, as they start off by talking about what its been like to do the podcast and why Jay wants to punch Colton in the face all the time.

Afterwards, they cover manga chapters 42-44, otherwise known as the Rengokukan Battle Arena arc, where the Odd Jobs trio stalks and meets a demon who seeks redemption. We also have Life Lessons segment covering all three chapter titles and an Anime/Manga Comparison segment on Episode 27 of the anime. Colton even gets to sit down and talk to Doctor from the SSAA Podcast and Just a Gintama Podcast about the origins of his podcasting career and just what he loves about Gintama. Last but not least, we even have some feedback to cover before we end the show. Topics of discussion for this episode include death throughout the series, why Gintama isnt popular overseas, and just how much we forget about this arc and the existence of the Tendoshuu.

Thank you to everyone who has been listening to us for the past year and special thanks to Doctor for coming on the show! Its the longest episode we’ve had in a while, so we hope you enjoy it!

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!
