Bubsy 1 & 2

Andrew in Steamland: Bubsy 1 & 2   It had to happen eventually, right? How could I not cover one of the most infamously awful game series of all time? Still, I was initially hesitant to review Bubsy, and not only because the games are bordering on unplayable. If something is the...

STALKER (Part 3)

Check Out This Human...

This week’s episode might seem like run-of-the-mill drama, as TOS introduces you to one of the most heinously cringe-worthy anime podcasts of all time. But it’s oh so much more than that. This week, TOS takes you into the mind of a fetish-obsessed clique of trainwrecks bent on anime fandom...

Monsters, Just Like ...

Dean Talks Anime: Monsters, Just Like Us! By Christopher Kinsey It’s no secret I’m a fan of Dungeons and Dragons.  I have spent, and still spend, a lot of creative thought processes about mythical beings, their societies, and how they function within different settings.  I’ve even...

Original Game, Do No...

Andrew in Steamland: Original Game, Do Not Steal   Mega Man is dead, doomed to exist only as a procession of half-hearted ports capitalizing on the segment of gamers who don’t know what emulators are. That doesn’t mean demand has gone away, though; there are plenty of people...

What Eromanga Did To...

On a really bad decision, the guys at The Other Side decided to watch this Eromanga Sensei show everyone’s talking about, and it’s safe to say no anime in recent memory has broke TOS the way this one did. This podcast ‘bout to bubble. But first, Cody does some housekeeping and tells everyone...

Fixing Fanservice

Dean Talks Anime: Fixing Fanservice By Christopher Kinsey   Fanservice.  We’ve come to expect it as a kind of standard in today’s anime.  Not a season goes by without one or two titles explicitly shouting “Yarr, here be boobies!” and then the market being flooded with highly detailed...

The Summer Season St...

School’s out, it’s summer, and the anime is still shit. Max, Andrew, and Cody continue down the road of the Summer 2017 season, finding all new realms of shit. But first, Cody takes a pit-stop to talk about a Dragonball YouTuber so bad mentioning his very name can send Cody into a...
