Jtor AM 22: Reaching the summit


Featuring in-depth discussion of ghostly chastity belts

Friends, otaku, countrymen: we stand on the precipice of a new age in Japanese animated entertainment. Now that Super Sonico The Animation has produced the world's first objectively perfect anime episode, where do we go from here? Will production companies balk at the pressure of constantly being measured against "The Sonico Standard?" Or will they continue to cling to pedestrian fare like Nisekoi and Magical Warfare like frightened babes clinging to their mother's breast? Furthermore, in a post-Soni-Ani 10 world, is there even a place for non-kitten anime like Kill La Kill anymore? 

In other exciting news, Tim wants to know what Space Brothers is and why LB watches it, Brittany drops by to discuss the many enigmas presented by Mitsuki's chastity belt(s), and everyone debates just how tired Koko is of Tada Banri's particular brand of bullshit. Oh, and we discuss the Imocho live action trailer, not because we're anticipating it or like it in any way, but because we said on a previous podcast that we'd continue following the story. That shows integrity...probably not journalistic integrity, no. But I think we should get credit for having some kind of integrity here.

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
