On this episode, kingkaz & Djm give their hot takes on E3.
Plus, we take a tip into comic book land….and a follow-up on a long-running gimmick of Two Nerdy Black Guys Lore!
YES. KAZ WATCHED GOTHAM.
All this, and Djm’s panic over eventually getting Overwatch.

On this episode, David Majors has made an observation that no one seems to be talking about.
Why hasn’t Funimation said anything about Dragon Ball Super? Is it just us? Is Toei having a hissy fit? Ain’t this a license to print money for everybody?
This leads Jack & Djm to lament over the fading opportunities for new and original IPs and material, even in Japan! Because now, we have Sadako vs. Kayako, starring the two characters from The Grudge & The Ring (or Ringu, you pedantic sons-a….please subscribe!). There is no money in being new and creative. There is all of the money in making what has already been successful again.
Jack introduces a Vita game that is also on the PS4! Bet you we got your attention now, huh? Yes. Jack tells us about Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir.
Later, the leaders of the APOSSE introduce each other to two more shows. Djm’s curiosity about Mr. Osumatsu prompts Jack to give a rundown, while the Deej throws My Hero Academia back at Jack.
All this, and stories of the anime conventions that were (Fanime)…and were not (ColossalCon).

Yes, Virginia. The Lost Village has revealed itself. And the entire Midwest Crew is finally interested, including David Majors, who has come crawling to its side 6 episodes in.
Re:Zero on the other hand…it’s doing JUST ENOUGH to keep the guys intrigued, complete with the big reveal!

Welcome to APOSS!
This episode, Jack & Djm are joined by Josh Dunham, host of Senpai Coast to Coast and founder of the Wave Motion Cannon blog. He says he takes anime waaaay too seriously, but he knows what he’s talking about, so Djm can have someone else other than Jack to lean on this episode!
After running through the news (including one upcoming premiere that David is particularly excited for), Jack, Josh and David discuss the streaming of Satoshi Kon’s Millenium Actress and his ongoing influence as a director.
Jack gives us an update on the next Ace Attorney game and his ever-evolving thoughts on the anime.
Later in the show, Josh finally explains what he doesn’t like about one of this current anime season’s more popular shows, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.
All this and a little Japaneezy-Weezy.

Welcome to the final episode of Two Nerdy Black Guys. Maybe. But probably not.
This week, Kaz & Djm talk about a little bit of what’s starting with E3 2016. Is it too early for the hype train to start revving its engines? And what the hell is Nintendo doing now? Also, VR is the new thing. The 2NBG discuss whether it’s the NEXT thing, or if it’s the next iteration of the 3D TV. Djm has one point that hasn’t been addressed, because it’s a point the tech pundits and enthusiasts always forget. Not the Deej!
All this, and the news that Djm saw from Maximilian that Pokken Tournament is selling better than the mighty Street Fighter 5. Capcom just can’t seem to get anything right.
Plus, Doom. Just how good is it, really?
SHOW NOTES:
Yes. Pokken is outselling Street Fighter 5.

This week, we have a spot starter, a veteran in the anime podcasting space, Marc Huber, formerly of the Mega Anime Ultra Show.
He’s been watching both shows right along with It’s In Season, so we invited him to fill in for Richard Waters.
Episodes 3 and 4 of our The Lost Village & Re-Zero fill David and Cody with hope for the future, despite The Lost Village still kind of plodding along.
Marc has watched a few eps ahead. Does he assure the guys that ReZero gets even better than it has during these two episodes? Does The Lost Village ever go anywhere at all?

We jump in with our two shows, The Lost Village & Re:Zero (Life in a Different World from Zero).
Re:Zero has set with the Midwest Crew rather nicely.  David is thankful to Cody for this pick because it reminds him of a favorite anime of his younger days.
Richard is thankful to Cody for this pick because it is a break from the norm of anime we’ve discussed in the past.
The Lost Village, on the other hand…
Well, there are a lot of characters to flesh out. So, we’re gonna give it the time that it needs. We’re fine.
 

The Nostalgia Train runs eternal.
Tenchi Muyo, Space Jam, and the official date of the spirtual successor to Mega Man top off this week’s APOSS.
Along with this, the writer behind Dragon Ball Evolution issues a heartfelt apology. Do you accept it?
All this, and David Majors, noted shounen hater, likes a shounen but is not hopeful for the dub cast.
Plus, Jack gets a very unique first look into the world of Pokemon.
 
Tenchi Muyo getting a 4th Season…?
Space Jam 2 with Lebron James
Mighty No 9 release date official, June 21 in NA, June 24 Worldwide
Ben Ramsey apologies for Dragon Ball Evolution
Vietnamese Pokemon Crystal

This episode, Kaz fulfills the obligations set out by Patron, podcast guest, and extraordinary gentleman Patrick Kohn AKA TimeJumper319 on our 100th episode.
Brandon Cooper gives us his hot take on Batman V Superman. David Majors replies and rebuts and finally goes into depth as to why he is admittedly in the minority on the film, the DC Snyderverse and the current incarnation of Superman as portrayed by Henry Cavill.
Djm does his best to get an answer out of Kaz on all things Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Justice League, while traversing the depths of Kaz’s comic book knowledge and all the twists and turns involved.
Later on the program, Kaz gives us some thoughts on the DC Animated movies that he has been watching, and reasons behind why he’s years behind….and why the bigger Batman fan of the 2NBG still has yet to watch a single episode of Gotham.
All this and discussion about which minor comic book movie characters could do well with their own film. Welcome to Comic Book Land!

The Midwest Crew has completed one full season without disaster! Onto the next.
For the uninitiated, David, Richard and Cody pick and choose 3 different anime from Spring 2016 and we deliberate over which two shows we will watch and discuss for It’s In Season. Here are our respective selections.
Richard: Kuma Miko, High School Fleet, Hundred
Cody: Bungo Stray Dogs, Re: Zero, The Lost Village
David: Joker Game, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, My Hero Academia
