Manga Pulse 515: Black-Chan

Looks like the boys are back in town. By that, we mean the two hosts you’ve come to know an love so, so much. And by town we mean the manga that evident by the title and number attached. So won’t it be a surprise to everyone when we actually spend the whole time reviewing a pair of riding lawn mowers. Of course we can’t afford any of that. So we start with Tim and Black Night Parade. It’s Christmas in Japan. Our sad sack of a protagonist works at a convenience store and plans on stealing an expired Christmas cake. This gets him in trouble and fired. He stops … Continue reading "Manga Pulse 515: Black-Chan"

Manga Pulse 514: Blade of Mother

Price check on manga. I need a price check on manga. Yes, I am aware this is a supermarket price check gag and that it was old even back in the eighties. Which means it’s beyond not relevant to make one now. Maybe we could do a random department page over the intercom. Grocery stores still do that. They also do those funny announcements about security like that deters shoplifters. Tim has Blade of Retribution. It’s about a Korea, Shiho, who’s a Kendo master. His sister heads off to college in Seoul. Then she dies and he decides to investigate because she wrote the infinity symbol in her journal. This … Continue reading "Manga Pulse 514: Blade of Mother"

Popcorn Pulse 220: No Hawk

It’s Monday, folks. At least when we’re recording. It also is often when we post because that’s our schedule. But even if it’s one of the other six days of the week, treat it like it’s Monday. By that we mean groan, clock in not more than a second before you’re obligated, and glare at the first people you interact with. Then brace yourself for discussion of movies. We start us off with Hudson Hawk(1991). Depending on how long you’ve been familiar with the man, you might better recognize him as Mister Action star with the patented glower of someone who has less than a minute to get to the … Continue reading "Popcorn Pulse 220: No Hawk"

Oh my goodness, things are moving along again. That means a post is due. Have we done something about leaves being raked? Does that work for anything? No? Crap.

Popcorn Pulse 219: Freeway Wars

Two households, both alike in dignity. In fat America, where we lay our scene. And that’s about all we can figure to work in a Shakespeare reference in the few minutes we knock these out. Besides we wanted to get a little classy before we tackle an A24 movie. Yup, we watched Civil War[2024]. If you’ve seen the trailers, then you’ve got some expectations as to what we’re in for. War scenes, bad things happening, and lots of explosions. Instead, you’re treated to a civil war in the US happening because reasons. And we follow ‘journalists’ as they try and get to the White House to get an interview with … Continue reading "Popcorn Pulse 219: Freeway Wars"

Manga Pulse 512: Red Secretary

If you’re reading this then you’re probably hearing about all the issues on website posts. Which is ironic because the only way this shows up is that the issues are resolved. One of those kind of funny paradoxes where you get to hear about it for the next couple of episodes now that it’s all done. It’s kind of like getting the results back from a cancer screening after you’ve already had surgery to remove a growth. If it helps, we’ve been keeping up with the recordings at least so we have manga. Tim has Since the Red Moon Appeared. The title is a bit explanatory. Some red moon events … Continue reading "Manga Pulse 512: Red Secretary"

Popcorn Pulse 218: Cruel Road

Everyone has heard the word in Hollywood. That word is exploitation and shady sexual favors. Wait, that’s not a word. The word is remake. That thing we’ve been complaining about long enough to wear out a couple of presidents. Hollywood is nothing if not persistent in their endeavor. Once they’ve bit down they will do a death roll until everybody has drowned. So we’re talking about a remake with Road House[2024]. Jake Gyllenhaal is literally not me as a replacement for Patrick Swayze. Whereas Swayze was a vaguely unexplained tough guy, Gyllenhaal is a disgraced MMA fighter. He gets randomly gets found by a small bar owner from the Florida … Continue reading "Popcorn Pulse 218: Cruel Road"

Manga Pulse 511: Fool Land

Suddenly there was a shout. The maid pointed towards the entryway. “Look out, he’s got a nug!” She bellowed. We discovered afterwards that she had long been diagnosed as having too much black bile and that lead to a curious condition. A transposing of letters in her speech and reading. This did not affect her day to day for what maid needed to be properly lettered as she polished the silver. Still we were taken aback by the presence of two manga. Tim has Fool Night. Not a night that’s jam packed with jesters, jugglers, and other jovial jackassery. It’s sometime in the future and the world is covered in … Continue reading "Manga Pulse 511: Fool Land"

It seems there’s a little rift open to the past. I can hear ragtime music and people talking in transatlantic accents. Hop in your old bone shaking Model T and drive down past the five and dime. Because we’re on a trip through history and film with Vivacious Lady(1938). Jimmy Stewart plays a professor who meets a nightclub performing girl, Ginger Rogers. They hit it off instantly and get married just before heading back to Jimmy’s home. He’s a bit spineless so he hasn’t told his dad that he’s a married man and hasn’t even consummated. Would you believe that wacky hi jinks and even shenanigans ensue? Tim has Sugar … Continue reading "Popcorn Pulse 217: Spicy Lady"

Let’s talk security. Now, most people don’t think about this but your windows are an overlooked ingress point. Most people will put on sensors or bars. But that won’t keep out the postal goblins.

Popcorn Pulse 214: Cube-age

Wait, is that a box? What’s in the box? No, really, what’s in the box? You’d be forgiven for thinking this means we’re talking about a well known and referenced nineties movie. We are talking about a movie that was part of the “have to watch” if you were slightly into film in that era though. Featuring a no-star Canadian cast that can’t help but beg for a box of Timbits and subpar coffee with every meaningful glance. Which can only mean the box we referenced prior has to be part of Cube(1997). The premise is fairly simple. There’s a bunch of cube rooms connected to other cube rooms.

Then they give them a kitchen stocked full of ingredients and let them loose. Neither do we but we’d like to see it happen. Especially if they were forced to try and remake something akin to their favorite food. Luckily we have a couple of manga to make up for the lack of what could be on TV.

We’ve talked about it for quite some time. Teased and hinted at doing something a little unorthodox from the norm. So we’ve broken down and gone and done it. We’ve leaned into the universe of James Bond. Helped by the fact it’s all free on a certain streaming service we don’t advertise for free. We have to start with the first of course.

Popcorn Pulse 204: Santa’s Covenant

It’s early September and we’re talking about movies. So that means we had to pick something fitting. Naturally this means we grabbed a Christmas movie from last year with Violent Night[2022]. Which stars the sheriff from Stranger Things. Sure he has a name but that’s how he’s stuck in our heads since he first appeared. He plays the Santa who’s going around on his yearly duty. He’s a bit jaded, gets drunk, and passes out in the home of one of those he’s dropping gifts off in. He is awakened by them being attacked by a mercenary team robbing the family. So Saint Nick has to put down thieves who … Continue reading "Popcorn Pulse 204: Santa’s Covenant"

Manga Pulse 499: Alcoholic Lesbians

Looks like we’re lining up for a long drive. We’ve settled on a driving club. A number five; five or maybe six. A very nice medium range club with an excellent driving force that’s a little dated. Certainly not the choice of some of the top players but very popular among the amateurs hitting the links. Tim hasn’t gotten his on the green so all Weltall has to do is avoid the sand trap and he’ll be within the his strength, the short game. Weltall has My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness. This is one of those autobiographical mangas written by a mangaka who doesn’t seem to have done anything else. … Continue reading "Manga Pulse 499: Alcoholic Lesbians"

Manga Pulse 498: Inside a Sandwich

We are like cardboard. Not because we are now made with up to thirty percent less material than previously. Because we are two flat sheets sandwiching corrugated paper. Also, we don’t stand up well in the rain. But that’s more because we’re from drier climes where water falling from the sky is of the devil unless it’s frozen. That’s a completely useless way of telling you that we have two manga again. Tim has a revisit of Kekkaishi. This time it’s an omnibus covering the first three volumes.

We heard everyone has gotten excited by the prospect of a toy based movie. We’re not sure why that’s working this time when Ouija happened and no one cared. That was clearly the best possible children’s toy to adapt. Anything less will fall short. Either way, we’re just thrilled that people are once again talking about Life-Size[2000]. We know it’s not the movie you were thinking of when we said doll and movie. We still watched the Lindsey Lohan and Tyra Banks vehicle.

It’s been a bit since we did a request. What will we choose using our incredible randomization process? The Last Unicorn. The book was written in the late sixties and has a lot of elements of a classic fairy tale. Having somewhat vague magic, ancient kings, curses, and romance. The movie cuts quite a bit, including the rather important harpy tits dangling all about. It was made in the early eighties and it’s usually noted as being animated by Topcraft. A number of members of Topcraft would break out to found Studio Ghibli. Our opinion is that the book tops the movie.

The movie cuts quite a bit, including the rather important harpy tits dangling all about. It was made in the early eighties and it’s usually noted as being animated by Topcraft. A number of members of Topcraft would break out to found Studio Ghibli. Our opinion is that the book tops the movie. While beautifully animated, there’s a lot of critical … Continue reading "Script 2 Script 31: The Last Unicorn"

Episode 800: Spring 2023 Previews #2

This week on Anime Pulse we got a whooper of a show today, as we celebrate our 800th show with guests from the community, previews from the spring season, and a little industry news. Up first Joseph and Andrew brush aside the IRL news and industry news to talk with the community, introduce them, and cover the community answers to this week's topic. After waving goodbye to the community and saying our fond farewells, we go over a little Q&A sent into us by non-live community members before wrapping up with the previews as usual. Joseph is reincarnated into the body of a recently murdered teenager, only to be summoned to another world to stop a war. Andrew on the other hand awakens in the body a sacrificial maiden in a fantasy novel, and needs to avoid a way of being a plot device for the true protagonist.

Popcorn Pulse 196: Supa Burnt

We broke down and inserted another coin to enable two player mode. That’s right, we went and dual reviewed the Double Dungeons Dragon movie. Or maybe we just went and saw The Super Mario Bros Movie[2023]. In spite of all the internet whinging that Chris Prat was voicing Mario which was surely a sign of how the west has fallen and millions must die. What can we really say about it? It’s an Illumination movie that doesn’t induce suicide. Prat does fine as Mario. Ana Taylor-joy does OK as Peach. Seth Rogen is there and should probably not. There’s a lot of references to the game and pop songs. The … Continue reading "Popcorn Pulse 196: Supa Burnt"

Manga Pulse 491: Mango Climax

Welcome to another episode of Mango Pulse where we consume and rate the world’s favorite fruit. We recently tackled the controversy of Kent mangoes and the low score received by Randy’s Fruit Stand. We stick by our opinion that they’re a little biased because they get ready access to the host’s orchard of Tommy Atkins, a notoriously finicky but rewarding variety. Stepping aside from controversy, today we’ll be diving into the Kesar variety. Excuse me? What do you mean “Manga” not “Mango?” What the hell kind of fruit is a Manga? Well, never mind then.

Like that the sun could go nova and wipe all life off the face of the earth and leave only the smolderiest of craters where only politicians and cans of RC cola survive and you just feel great anyway?

Manga Pulse 478: 100 Deaths

Like a little white rabbit, we’re late. But that’s just because we prefer it raw rather than wrapped. Caseless bratwurst is the tastiest and don’t let the haters tell you differently.

Then this manga is probably right up your alley, two people besides Tim that have such a niche. We get introduced to a pair of yakuza … Continue reading "Manga Pulse 478: 100 Deaths"
