Episode 38 – My Kid Is Deader Than Your Mom

17 Aug



On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton is joined by Bookie, as well as Josh Dunham from Senpai Coast to Coast to help talk about some important Gintama related news. Afterwards, we cover Chapter 53 of the manga, in which Gin fights with a ninja over Shonen Jump. We also have a Life Lessons segment with a little bit of the religious background of Japan and an Anime/Manga Comparison segment covering the second half of Episode 37 of the anime. Topics of discussion for this episode include the difference between satire and gag, how many of the references a typical American audience would get, and how awesome Tomokazu Sugita is (if you didnt know already). Stay tuned over the next coming weeks for some announcements concerning a change or two for the podcast, but until then, enjoy!

23 Feb


On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton brings on new co-host, Bookie, to cover Chapter 40 of the manga! In which, we are introduced to the fearsome assassin, known as, Sarutobi Ayame (or Sa-chan for short). We also have a Life Lessons segment and an unusually lengthy Anime/Manga Comparison on Episode 22 of the anime. Topics of discussion on this episode include what the true meaning behind marriage is, how much of the story Sorachi may or may not have planned out from the beginning, and what would happen to Freddy Krueger if he invaded the dreams of the people of Kabukicho. Hope everyone takes a shine to the new addition to the crew, and enjoy the episode!
