Jtor AM Episode 1: Back in Red and Black

Oct 05 // Karen Mead
[embed]29837:2910:0[/embed]Download (mp3)  Please note: We recorded this on 9/27, so that's why we're talking as though shows like Beyond the Boundary and Kill La Kill hadn't aired yet. It took a little time to get the first episode web-ready. Show notes: News: 3:48 Sega buys Atlus, other Atlus news 14:15 Vita TV 17:11 The  mystery of Lighting's appeal and other TGS talk 24:30 Ranma 1/2, because I said so 26: 17 Steins; Gate visual novel pre-orders 28:09 Attack on Titan fan animation Anime Talk: 32:06 Wrapping up the summer season 41:44 What we're watching for fall Podcast theme music is a jazz arrangement of Tank! from Anime That Jazz 2: All That Jazz. Feel free to let us know in the comments what you liked, disliked, and what you might want to see us cover in the future. Just don't say anything bad about Attack on Titan, because apparently that's Tim's Berserk Button.

Now with existence!
What else can I say: the Japanator podcast is back. Myself, Tim, Ben and Sal sat down to talk about anime and video game news, the fall anime roster, and whether or not koala bears are deserving of love and adoration or com...

Japanator AM Episode 51: 14-year olds aren't even human

Feb 09 // OxKing
What's New This Week: -New Guest: We're happy to have with us this week yet another new member to the Jtor crew, Michelle Rodanes, whose sarcastic remarks and jaded sense of humor are a welcomed addition to the rest of these cynical pricks on this weeks podcast. -PackedCast!™: There's six people on tonight's episode, so be sure to nail those voices down to a name or face, because this shit is getting talkative. TIMECODES:RunTime: [43:04] 00:00 - Aftermath of pulling a prank on Elliot.00:45 - THEME SONG ["Milk Crisis" -- The Go! Team]01:44 - Introductions [Elliot, Hiroko, Marcus, Josh, Michelle, Salvador]08:45 - 2012 Winter Season Discussion - I take back a few harsh word I said last podcast about a certain show, and we breifly talk about Moretsu Space Pirates.10:40 - Black Rock Shooter Simulcast- Michelle talks a little about 14-year olds and how little girls are soulless and why it's best to never have more than one friend. Some anime discussion is sprinkled in.14:29 - Star Driver Film Discussion - Fabulous.16:01 - Revolutionary Girl Utena Discussion - Which is a better spiritual successor: Star Driver, or Muwaru Penguindrum?17:55 - Feature -- Anime Reflection: We attempt to attach an age to our names as we reflect waaayyy back to stories of when we were first watching anime. Hiroko begins with a couple certain titles... 18:35 - Elliot continues with a story about his uncle and sister...20:11 - Josh talks about the first time he bought anime.21:08 - Michelle talks about Cyberpunk and the great titles she's watched. 21:59 - Feature -- All of the reminiscing is COMPLETELY HALTED due to the following Evangelion / Raxephon debate that ensues between us all, which is understandably followed up by a Madoka discussion as well. We get no where with it.30:15 - Nearly ten minutes later, we come back to the previous topic, with Marcus talking about The International Channel, as well as Sal talking about Toonami.34:42 - We talk about what shows make us just increasingly upset the more we watch it: Panty and Stocking,  Lagrange, .hack//sign, and even this seasons' Poyo Poyo are all mentioned, but by whom? Check in here to find out.39:38 - Closing - We talk a little bit more, wrap things up, and say our goodbyes to you all!41:44 - Ending Song ["Polish Girl" -- Neon Indian] NOTES: -We didn't take a whole lot of breaks this week; as you can probably tell, we jumped from one subject to another to another to another to help fill in these 45 minutes for you fairly easily. -Before the show, we ended up waiting for Elliot to work his ass off to get a connection before we ultimately hung up on him, not two seconds after he finally got hooked up with us. Hence, his bitter greeting. -This week was a lot of fun to record, if only because it was the most sloppy, unprofessional podcast we've done yet. Oddly enough, I feel it turned out to be the best, most engaging show once it had been put into editing form, if only because of my desperate attempts to keep topics going to save this week from being a failure. -This week, our Skype call lasted: 2hrs 40mins 36secs JAPANTOR AFTERSHOW:[Download]

Japanator AM Episode 50 : Back and Better than Ever!

Jan 26 // OxKing
What's New This Week: -Update on Last Week: Well, obviously we've been on longer-than-usual break for the podcasts, though don't think that this incident is reflective of future episodes: this was a one time deal! None of our members screwed up, we didn't purposely bail on you guys... in fact, we actually have an unofficial episode that we recorded two weeks back. However, I've been incapacitated these past couple of weeks due to a broken leg...whoops. (send in your kind regards below, because I literally can't recover without gobbling up pity from you all) -REBOOT OF JAPANATOR AM: We're gonna try our hardest to pick up the AM handle again, following in the footsteps of Ben, and treading ahead to opt for the best Japanator hosted podcast, a la Karen before him. This episode will undoubtedly not live up to the standards they've created, but here's to hoping I could at least somehow meet them halfway down the road and maybe add some of the zest Japanator's newest share. -Newest Writers!: With us this week are two of our newest staff writers: Josh and Salvador. Here's a chance to hear their voices so you can use it as ammunition when flaming the comments section after a nasty argument over SHAFT shows. -JAPANATOR AFTERSHOW!: I really put effort into slimming this weeks podcast into something more manageable, seeing as though listening to us assholes talk for a whole hour and then some would get old really quick. So I've opted for a solution: If you're one of the few who just love to hear us talk and feel that 45 minutes is just not long enough for you, then check out our Japanator Aftershow, where you get all of the raw audio and stuff edited out for time and pace. You get to hear our banter before the actual podcast begins, as well as us chatting casually afterwards and in between breaks. Get twice as much podcast for your buck! Win-win! TIMECODES:RunTime: [48m:28s] 00:00 - Mic Check00:18 - THEME SONG! ["Tracey Gold" -- Freezepop]00:50 - Introductions from the Crew [Elliot, Marcus, Hiroko]03:18 - NEWEST WRITERS! [Josh, Salvador]08:44 - Feature -- Consumer Electronics Show 2012: Hiroko gives a quick rundown of her visit to CES this year, and her time with Dale North and Conrad Zimmerman from Destructoid.12:19 - Square Enix and Falcom on iTunes: Elliot gives his take on the coincidental and ironic iTunes fiasco between these two very different video game developers, size-wise.16:28 - Video Game Discussion: Resident Evil 6 and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.20:10 - Salvador's Anime Watch: Our friend Sal talks about his coverage on Ano Natsu, as well as his favorite shows this season.23:54 - More Video Game Discussion: What are the best Sega Dreamcast Games? Shenmue, Jet Grind Radio, Seaman, Berserk and more are touched upon.28:28 - Katawa Shoujo Discussion - After letting some time settle between 100% it, Elliot and Marcus talk about the increasingly popular Katawa Shoujo VN.32:23 - Elliot gushes out more about stupid shit. We all stopped listening to him at this point because he's dumb and only likes children, I heard.33:00 - Hiroko's Anime Watch: We talk a little about Guilty Crown, as well as touch up on the video game Catherine a bit.35:50 - Josh's Anime Watch: Josh says, and I quote: "High School DxD has no good qualities about it, Marcus was right and he's always right."37:20 - Marcus' Anime Watch: Kill Me Baby is shit.38:06 - Elliot's Anime Watch: We systematically take Lagrange apart, piece by piece.39:06 - Reader Questions!: Despite our random call-out for questions, we actually got a few we chose to read out. If your question isn't answered, don't feel too sad that it was cut in favor of time restraints. Maybe you can check out Japanator Aftershow to hear us talk about it there, eh?46:26 - Wrap-up and Goodbye (Japanator AM): Thanks again you guys for sticking it out with us here at Japanator!47:11 - Ending Song ["Sincerely" -- Tsutchie / Nujabes] NOTES: -Sorry for the really poor audio quality this week, you guys! Poor choice of mics, and definitely something to improve upon, so please bear with us for a little bit more. -I swear, you'd be surprised how often I had to edit us laughing out. We laugh a lot, however a good podcast that does not make I guess. -Check next week around this time for a post from me, asking for questions!... Maybe...... -This week, our Skype call lasted: 2hrs 38mins 54secs JAPANATOR AFTERSHOW:[Download] TWITTER: Marcus: @kindaaloserSal: @TheCrimsonBladeElliot: @RyougaSaotomeHiroko: @BioBooster
