News & Updates

A page for your blog posts

Greetings, salutations, hello everyone and welcome to the Anime Podcast of Some Sort.

Your hosts David ‘D.j.m.’ Majors & Count Jack Noire. You’re probably listening to this and you’re going to hear something you’re probably not used to hearing—yes.

This will be a snark-free anime podcast. Full of positivity, optimism, and occasional jokes about Hayao Miyazaki. Miyazaki is back, begrudgingly making one final film and using CG.

Also, Djm is a big fan of Ghost in the Shell. He’s seen the teasers and trailer—and he doesn’t hate it. Jack helps Deej through these strange feelings.

Later, Jack gives us an update on Skullgirls, a game that he enjoys, other people enjoy, and we both think you should check out.

All this, and a bunch of arrests, and shows involving arrests, cops and robbers.

Like most fictional cops, Miyazaki is always one film away from retirement

News for the council of twelve: some interesting goodies for Skullgirls players (And Jack admits he likey)

The Two Nerdy Black Guys get caught up and chit-chat.

Djm has guested on a few shows recently, and kingkaz is still humming along with DKG. Kaz is intrigued by Doctor Strange, and the Deej gives his take.

A relatively chill 2NBG with absolutely no election talk whatsoever. Because we love you.

On the newest APOSS, Jack is on extra-spoopy Halloween assignment, and David is joined by THE Otaku Journalist, Lauren Orsini!

David & Lauren cover the latest news on Makoto Shinkai’s “Your name” and Funimation’s shot at Oscar qualification. Not to mention the film’s YUUUGE numbers in Japan.
Plus, the final take on Serena kissing Ash in Pokemon XY&Z, and a great victory for shippers everywhere.

David covers Jack’s talk about video games and instead of the PS Vita, he brings up, what else, TEKKEN!

Later, David & Lauren debate Keijo, fanservice, and Gundam, because there’s never enough discussion about Gundam. On THAT we agree.

Oh, yes. It’s time.

The fall anime that everyone is talking about, one way or another, Keijo!!!!!! Jack & Djm give their hot take.

Plus, Jack shares a bunch of October scary games.

In actual anime news, Funimation screws up with Escaflowne, but does good by Godzilla.

And the beginning of Youmacon Hype for Djm…

On a very classic Two Nerdy Black Guys, Kaz & Djm just have a chit-chat. Work, life, traveling.

Kaz is back from TwitchCon and gives his review, good and bad. Djm heels TwitchCon and its attendees.

David is a bit cranky from working a great number of hours from his dayjob, but asks Kaz for advice on spending all this money from working so much on traveling.

All this and a little more of Djm being mean-spirited and hate-filled.

PRODUCTION NOTE FROM DJM: There was a derp-out on my part with the audio. A little bit over an hour in, I start getting reverby and echoey. My bad. One-time mistake. Won’t happen again. Thanks for your support.

David & Brandon answer the Bat-signal!

Kaz has been catching up with the first 2 seasons of Gotham on netflix (because 2NBG does not endorse Hulu) and Djm just watched the premiere of the 3rd season, terrestrial-style.

Crunchyroll & Funimation are partnering together to bring you anime, anime, anime. For the greater good.

As 91 Days continues to stay strong and get some love on Crunchyroll as a Critic’s Pick, Taboo Tattoo hits it’s next few episodes and takes a direction all its own. How is the Midwest Crew taking these two anime as they enter their 4th triumvirate?

On the newest APOSS, we get word from Jack’s audition for the upcoming Osumatsu-san stage play. Plus, Djm gets to get hype about the still-very-much-a-thing Battle Angel Alita adaptation under the watchful eye of director James Cameron.

Later, Djm brings back a favorite from It’s In Season of 2015, God-Eater. The show was notable for having to stop temporarily during its run last fall, but finishing in the spring. Was it worth the wait? And how did Jack feel about the God-Eater Vita game?

Also, are we reaching a point to where consumers don’t get upset when directors halt production?
