2 Feb

grump

Its here! Its finally here! The first episode of Life Lessons in 2016! And on this episode, Colton brings on Sid (aka, LumRanmaYasha, aka, Cartoon X) to talk about Chapters 57 and 58 of the manga, otherwise known as the beginning of the Umibozu arc! We also talk about both Lessons 57 and 58 during the Life Lessons segment, followed by an Anime/Manga Comparison of anime Episode 40. Topics of discussion during the podcast include what kind of anime Colton’s dad likes, what kind of writing would be expected of a (good) Gintama English dub, and why Episode 40 may be the worst episode of the anime so far.

We’d thank Sid for coming on the show, but he isn’t done with us just yet! Stay tuned for Episode 43 of the podcast on February 8th, followed by Episode 44 on February 15th. Thats another whole TWO episodes to look forward to, so stay tuned as we continue our coverage and discussion of the Umibozu arc!
