Jtor AM Episode 2: Two Frames Per Second


And sometimes animation

It's not even a week after our first episode, and here's another installment of Jtor AM! I would say that this is a reward for being good boys and girls, but I'll bet that some of you have been watching bad dating sim adaptations, so maybe not. I guess we just throw podcasts at you regardless of your conduct? Sounds like a plan.

This week, Tim is appalled by the animation (or lack thereof) in Kill La Kill and in denial about Walkure Romanze being a harem show, Ben has had it UP TO HERE with your lolis and your imoutos and your siscon and all of your other crap, and Sal is left wondering about his place at our lunch table, where you will never find melon soda. And me? I continue to shame myself as a child of the '80s who somehow never encountered like half of the things people remember from the '80s. I'm so embarrassed right now.

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
