Without 905′s guiding light, Greg and Jon are left to stumble around in the dark and talk about Twitter or something because they forget it’s an anime podcast for a little while. Greg manages to say a few words about Gundam with the latest episode being “the one with the stupid suits” and they chat about Samurai Flamenco’s recent plot twists. It’s all OK though, for they get right into the spirit of Christmas and discover how the holiday can become sexier than ever.
We really hate to do this twice in a row, but due to jetlag, appointments with doctors, and all manner of hassles getting in the way of recording tonight, we will be recording JAAP 74 on Friday.
We apologise for the inconvenience, but hopefully the delay will lead to an episode free of fatigue that’ll be the best it can possibly be. Thanks for all your understanding, and we’ll be seeing you on Friday! In the meanwhile, fee free to pop any questions you may have that you’d like answered on Friday in here!
Thanks again for your understanding! We’ll do our best not to let this happen again!
Greg’s back this week, but still in Japan, phoning in early in the morning to talk about his experiences. Michael and Jon ask him about his trip, learning what shows are popular in Japan at the moment, and that apparently Joshiraku makes for a good travel itinerary. The group then move into the weekly watch, trying to figure out just what happened in Samurai Flamenco this week.
Due to my own illness, some family stuff, and the general holiday season, episode 73 is going to be delayed a couple of days so we can (hopefully) get you an episode that isn’t rushed and full of me coughing every ten seconds.
We’ll be recording, and uploading, the episode Friday, November 29th, barring any unforeseen complication.
Thanks for your understanding.
This week sees Michael and Jon left to their own devices as Greg explores the forbidden wilderness known as Japan. What do the two spend their time talking about? Surprisingly, not just about Gundam Build Fighters, as the two actually prove they can talk about more than giant killing machines and have actual discussion about romance shows. Then, the crew tackles the daunting task of ranking the outfits of the Joshiraku cast.
As Greg prepares to leave the podcast and his country for two weeks, Michael and Jon talk about Build Fighters while gearing up to talk even more about Build Fighters while Greg’s gone because absolutely no one can stop them. Elsewhere, robots are talked about in further detail as Jon gets asked yet another ultimate question: Which Mobile Suit would he have sex with? Nobell strictly forbidden.
This week, which we’ll call a special birthday episode for the sake of tiding Greg over, more shows are dropped as one series flounders in its own mediocrity and another takes a dive off of a cliff. Jon also gets killed to death by the eternal question: Who is his waifu?
On this apparently most herbaceous of episodes, the hosts seem to have some confusion over controlled substances and sexual acts. They discuss their favorite McDonald’s in anime, their favorite OPs and EDs, and learn that Scooby-Doo can do whatever and whoever he pleases.
Please listen to JAAP responsibly.
This week’s JAAP is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Things get eccentric as the hosts discuss characters that ruined shows for them. Later on, Jon and Michael say things that are technical words and may be related to Gundam while Greg tries to stop time to visit an adult preschool.
As the season trudges on, the JAAP hosts start seperating the wheat from the chaff by dropping shows. They say “see you later” to Nagi no Asukara, let the wheel of fate keep turning on BlazBlue, make the choice to say “no” to Noucome, and more. The group gushes about this season’s Noitamina offerings, try and make sense out of Tokyo Ravens, and learn, once again, that few things on this world rival a girl’s love for cake. Discussions end with talk of an industry saturated by Jeff Goldblum and attempts to say “Goldthwait.”
