In a new 3-part miniseries, we’re taking a comprehensive look back at the original FLCL series in preparation for the upcoming sequels. Today, we begin by discussing the production, story and characters of episodes 1 and 2.
We’re finally back in our studio and bigger and better than ever! We sip on some good bourbon this week as we catch up with what’s been going on in the anime world, before debriefing last season’s big shows and then giving you a sneak peak of the season that just started. It’s one of the longest episodes in recent memory, so stick with us!
Holy smokes would you look at the time? Wait, what time? Time for the most stacked season in over a decade! Check the jump to see what we’re most excited for.

Patrick just got back from Japan, so what better a time to wrap up his trip in detail and then discuss the currently airing shows of winter 2018.
Hey everyone, it’s been a while so I decided to check in from my Japan trip with an article about my day trip to the location of Love Live Sunshine: Numazu and Uchiura! It was a pretty awesome trip and I was amazed at just how into it the cities are, to say nothing of the amount of people taking the pilgrimage in the middle of the day on a Wednesday!
Marc recorded a special audio version of the Japanese hip-hop panel he’s been doing for a while now. Tune in as he teaches you all he knows about the history of hip-hop in Japan and its place in Japanese culture, and recommends some of his most essential artists! Be sure to check out after the jump for show notes to follow along with, including music videos. There’s also a Spotify playlist that we’ll be updating periodically at the end!
