Jtor AM 15: Magic court is scary


Tim and L.B. bond over mutual Kill La Kill hate

Tim took over hosting duties while I was away, but don't listen to the shameless lie he feeds you at the beginning of this episode: I was NOT snowboarding. I was skiing, which is completely different! Skiers are graceful athletes who deftly traverse a sparkling winter wonderland with style and aplomb; snowboarders are slackers who are always sitting on their butts in packs at the top of the trail, blocking everyone else from getting down the mountain. Please don't confuse these two things.

In my absence new Japanator editor L.B. makes his podcast debut, and the crew discusses the usual slate of anime (plus some new stuff) while Tim tries to constrain his massive mountain of hate for everything that has ever existed since the beginning of time. Fortunately, the otherwise-friendly L.B. seems to hate (or at least dislike) a few of the same things that Tim does, so it looks like his prospects around here are pretty solid. Also on the plus side: Ryuko Matoi's new outfit, which has been known to cover her entire butt.

Hi, I'm a former newspaper journalist who got tired of having a front row seat to the death of print. There probably could be some interesting story there about a disenchanted reporter moving on ... more + disclosures
