Episode 59 – Planet High Speed

4 Sep

speed

On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton profusely apologises for the sudden hiatus and gives updates on future podcasts to come. Afterwards, we’re joined by Hugh Matthews, contributor to and translator of a few recent Gintama articles over at Wave Motion Cannon, to cover Chapter 87 of the manga, in which Gin has to help a very inconvenient Amanto perform deliveries. We also briefly discuss the chapter title during our Life Lessons segment (For The Wind Is The Life), though unfortunately, due to lack of content to discuss, we have no Anime/Manga Comparison this episode…or do we!? Topics of discussion this episode include how hard it is to find other Gintama fans, more weird SFX from Viz’s translation, and ideas for 80’s cartoons.

Episode 58 – Shingeki no Macamademia

22 May

maca

On this episode of Life Lessons, we celebrate our (late) 4th anniversary with special guest, Josh Dunham, from Senpai Coast to Coast and Wave Motion Cannon, as we start off the show with a lot of small talk, including the results of our first podcast survey and even an email from a listener (guess who). Afterwards, we discuss Chapters 85 and 86 during our double manga recap, in which we recount a romantic tale of Shinpachi’s encounter with a lovely cat-eared girl on the train ride home. We also discuss Lessons 85 and 86 during our Life Lessons segment, followed by an Anime/Manga Comparison of Episodes 34 and 35 of the anime. Topics of discussion for this episode include the urban legend of the Densha Otoko (Train Man) of which this arc parodies, critique of both the humor what direction this story could or should have went in, and more of Josh and Colton’s terrible in-jokes.

Special thanks to all of our listeners and recurring contributors for making 4 years of this podcast possible! Only one more year until our 5th anniversary!!
