In this episode of JAAP, the podcast that never gives, the gang teaches you about everyone’s favourite Lethal Weapon villain: Gregory Edwards. Elsewhere, Eddie Murphy romps through the mean streets of the Nakatomi Plaza so that you can find the Axel and win the prize. We’ve got thrills, chills, and diplomatic immunity on the latest episode of a show that’s probably about anime. Oh, and Will Smith fights Harold, but not Kumar.
Abandon hope, all ye who listen. Run while you still can. Seriously though, this episode is terrible and I hate it and I hate you, listener. Also, we ran into UNFORTUNATE MISHAPS during the editing process and…the last third of the episode vanished. Due to time constraints from all of us, we couldn’t re-record that last third, but all questions answered this week that don’t appear on this episode will be re-answered next week. Not much of value was lost save for us mentioning that RahXephon won’t be watched for JAAP any longer because we are terrible people.
Apologies for the half episode this week! As a terrible host, I’ll do my best to not be awful next week.
Greg is still dead and there’s nothing to do about it without some dough. We gush over how much we all love Tonari no Seki-kun and talk about our favourite character albums and Anime OSTs. Another bland-sounding Light Novel adaptation get discussed and Tobiichi picks all the wrong shows to name recognizable voice actors from. Also, what the hell happened in Mikakunin this week!? We take responsibility for nothing.
JAAP returns from the ether after a week and a half with Jon taking center stage as the only one who actually watched everything, while Tobiichi and Rex manage to bullshit their way through Hunter X Hunter despite not having seen the show. Sit back and enjoy as Jon talks about his newfound obsession with Muv Luv and Rex gets racist. It’s JAAP Episode 82: The episode that never ends.
This week, Rex and Tobiichi have died (it’s only temporary, they’ll be revived next week) and left Jon and Greg to fend for themselves. What kind of wacky hijinks do they get up to? They…actually stay on track. Jon gets revved up about Build Fighters and both hosts get really, really upset by that foolish Nobunaga dubstep show, but are immediately cheered up by the other Nobunaga show with the cool name and guns. Nobunaga should really just join JAAP as a co-host at this point. [NOTE: ED song isn't here this week! It'll be added in as soon as possible, otherwise, the episode is here in its entirety]
This week, Cliffy B has escaped! The JAAP crew doesn’t venture off to recapture him because they’re too busy getting upset by incest shows and Nobunaga’s dubstep robots and they need to podcast about it for your sick pleasure. Elsewhere, Rex wins the fight of the century™ and Tobiichi is crowned the Macaulay Culkin of Sweden while Jon disappoints Greg more than anyone ever should because Greg has the best taste and we should all praise his being and help him become the new assistant to the king of Egypt. He totally didn’t write this description.
Watch out Cliffy B, the JAAP crew has moved their hole, just in time for episode… three? Come join Greg, Jon, Rex, and new co-host Tobiichi Karlsson as they once again delve into the depths of anime to discuss Ghostcest, shows that are things, and the return of sea pizza. Follow them as they bravely expose what esteemed actor Dean Cain does to children. All of that and more, on this podcast!
In this 10% special episode of JAAP, Rex Wolff joins the show as a full co-host and Jon gets elected Best Person of 2014 by Time Magazine despite the fact that he probably likes meth. Everyone talks about just how stupid it is to phone random numbers scrawled on bathroom doors, and Greg and Jon subject themselves to a Shitty Fate. All this and more on the world’s least entertaining podcast brought to you by two Americans and a South African.
Joined by ultra guest Rex Wolff, the gang wraps up the Fall season by giving out remarkably shiny awards and trying to privatise Japan’s railways. Elsewhere, Jon brings up Gundam about 12000 times, prompting Greg and Rex to discuss why kids need to start killing earlier. All three will teach you a valuable lesson about the pizza of the sea and urge you to send them money and ovens so that the JAAP house of Connecticut can finally become a home. All this and more on the podcast where it’s not about videogames, it’s about freedom.
(Apologies for the muffled audio this week. Also, the first upload of this episode didn’t contain the ending song, but it’s been added in now. It’s not JAAP if it doesn’t have problems! But we’ll swap them out for another problem next week, or we’ll stop calling it JAAP and there’ll be no more problems. – Greg)
Hitting upon the realization that they really want more money, Greg and Jon launch the latest Kickstarter sensation where you can give them money and they’ll both fly to America to buy all of the 10 videogames in existence. They also discover that there is no symbolism in anime quite like butts made of fruit, and Jon makes deep, passionate love to Gundam Build Fighters. And finally you, the listener will become Nicolas Cage as you fight to uncover the National Treasure of JAAP.
