Crunchyroll & Funimation are partnering together to bring you anime, anime, anime. For the greater good.
Introducing the Anime Tourism Association, led by legendary director Yoshiyuki Tomino.

Pokemon Anime, with Ash’s New Design is so bad that…

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?

On this episode, Djm has run out of shit. For a podcast that is mostly freeform, when you find yourself to be not that interesting, it can be a challenge, but to Kaz’s credit, he manages to pull a conversation out of him.

The 2NBG discuss the divide between the mainstream media and internet content creation. Djm reminds him that most of us have no chance at “the dream”. Kaz offers an alternative position and says that it is for “the love of the game”.

All this, and absolutely no Batman talk. But there is some convention talk, and talk about why conventions in the Midwest HAVE to be interesting in comparison to others.

On this episode, it would appear as though Richard and Cody are finally seeing the light on Touko from Taboo Tattoo, and it’s not just because she turned out of the way!

The tonal shift into Fanservice City is still a problem, though.

Also, 91 Days is still great all around. Are we seeing a shift in personalities between Avilio and Brother Nero? The Orco family is making a big move. What will happen?

Quite a few hot topics this week, and David & Jack dive right in. Doesn’t Jack sound great?  THANK YOU PATRONS!

Final Fantasy XV got delayed by 2 months, and people are generally okay with it. Sausage Party has some question to answer, because people aren’t happy with it.

All this, and an explosion of disconent towards the vaunted Pokemon anime. Ash Ketchum’s finish in the Kalos League did not meet people’s expectations. David & Jack talk about why people were upset, and cover all sides of the debate of what always stops the anime from giving Ash his big moment after nearly 20 years.

 

TOPICS:
Final Fantasy XV delayed 2 months. Not a lot of people are actually that upset.
Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans season 2, time skip, new characters, October 2nd.
Sausage Party allgedly forced animators to work for free, refused to credit artists
Ash Ketchum lost a Pokemon League final, and the Internet is PISSED!

On this episode, Brandon is back from Otakon 2016, the final Otakon to be held in his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. Kaz gives us the rundown of this year’s convention, the dreaded summer heat and his photography adventures.

Later, Djm celebrates as Kaz is completely caught up on the Batman franchise, and we find out what the biggest Batfan thought of the much-discussed Suicide Squad, as well as the animated adaptation of “The Killing Joke”.

And it wouldn’t be an episode of Two Nerdy Black Guys without a Djm existential crisis. Tune in!

This episode, David is joined by Enthusiastic Anime Social Media Maven, Marc Huber. Cody and Richard are both on assignment, so Djm calls in the former host of the Mega Anime Ultra Show to talk 91 Days and Taboo Tattoo.
Marc is following along with these two shows along with the dozens of other anime that he’s watching. What does he think of the mafia homage 91 Days? Would he be willing to recommend Taboo Tattoo?
And just what is Izzy’s deal, man?

And so, summer 2016 is under way!
The Midwest Crew have picked their two, 91 Days and Taboo Tattoo.
Djm talks about the mafia anime and raves over it, particularly one character. Taboo Tatoo shouldn’t work. On paper, it shouldn’t work. Does it?
Well, you gotta listen and find out! We’re not gonna give you everything in the Show Notes!

Big thanks to Shay, the Anime Reviewer Girl, for joining us on this episode as a guest!
Shay joins the A-posse to talk about all sorts of anime things under the sun!
Jack has discovered Steins;Gate via visual novel, while Shay & Djm make comparisons with the anime, and how much we all love saying the main character’s name with his mannerisms. There’s a 90s nostalgia grip, thanks to Sega & Nintendo, and old man Djm is nearly in tears thanks to his ol’ blue buddy, Sonic the Hedgehog.
Later, Jack gives his take one One Piece being 65 percent complete…which leads to Shay triggering Djm’s rage.
All this and a couple of updates on some shows we’ve talked about being a little TOO quiet, but are apparently beginning to open up. You’re welcome, shounen fans. APOSS <3 you.
