Let’s just come out with it, there are WAY too many good shows this season. The spring season of shows is one of the most front-loaded seasons in a long while, with some of the most all-around solid picks you can choose from for whatever you’re into – slow-burn furry mysteries, 1920s theatrical vampire drama, boxing with sociopolitical overtones, or even simping. You know who you are. It’s an overloaded season with an equally overl...

Oh, you know, no big deals to talk about with this show, nothing super monumental to discuss, nothing like that. Except freaking MACROSS. That might just be a tad bit substantial. And in our last rundown show before discussion the spring season, we have plenty to get into, be it hilarious gacha game incompetence, reasons why you should spend $10 to have the Dub Talk crew do an episode on Vampire Knight, why Kazuki Akane deserves to...

Here we thought all we were going to talk about was the happenings and announcements from AnimeJapan. Instead, everything else got announced, including stuff that happened after this show’s recording – yes, we’ll talk about THAT next time. So, with Andrew back from his “training arc” of sorts, we’re back to full strength to talk about a LOT of big stuff, not just AnimeJapan – we have the Viz and Crunchyroll home video deal that’s b...

And with this show, we’re back on proper schedule. All is well… at least for this show, anyway. Consider this another one of those infodump shows where we go through a good amount of news and announcements in a rather swift setting, all in some kind of preparation for what should be another long show with AnimeJapan coming up. But in the meantime, enjoy our discussion on the game Scarlet Nexus getting anime series, the long-awaited...

Apologies for this show being about a week late, as we had some issues out of our control that prevented us from meeting up to do our show on schedule. Thanks a lot for everything, Kabletown, we hope you’re enjoying giving WWE those $200 million checks for the next five years. But gripes aside, we’ve got a good bit of stuff to talk about, even if the overall mood is a bit more… subdued, as it’s a three-man affair for this and the n...

Yes, the episode title is a big Daft Punk reference, kind of obvious. But this is also a sendoff in a different way, as while we give our thanks to the acclaimed French electronic music duo for their years of excellence, we are also sending Andrew off on this show as he will be undergoing a bit of a “training arc” of sorts for a little while. But he wanted to be on for these last two shows we did, to both groan at the CR Anime Awar...

Maybe it’s just the disillusionment we’ve all felt over the past year, but this year’s Crunchyroll Anime Awards just didn’t have anything to them. It was virtual, pre-recorded, and pretty boilerplate across the board, and while that did mean there was a significant drop in awfulness and cringe that did come with the catch of just being a pretty forgettable hour that just came and went. There were some good award choices, some bad o...

Here are some hard realities of life that we all need to accept: Tom Brady is an eldritch god living among the humans, Hunter x Hunter and Berserk both have the same billion-to-one odds of ever coming back full-time, and nothing that any other studio makes could match the avant-garde glory that is Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1995 anthology film MEMORIES. Try as they might, very little can even stand in its league, and we caught the Discotek ...

With the start of a new anime season comes our seasonal discussion of the good, bad, and quite certainly ugly that the season has to offer. And with the large amount of shows this season has in store, we’ve got two loaded episodes to unpack a season filled with sequels, quality, and even some dumpster fires as well – and we have our good friends Megan from Dub Talk and Sketch from just about everywhere to join us and help us out wi...

Yep, it’s that time again. Awards season is upon us, and even though it’ll look a lot different this time around the guarantees of salt and disappointment are sure to remain the same. And as our very long-winded discussion on this year’s nominations for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards are anything to go by, we’ll be in for a salty night next month. But it’s not all about the hot-dogging and grandstanding, as we’ve got a movie to go ov...

To say that the year 2021 has gotten off to a hectic start would be the understatement of the decade, as there has been a LOT going on in only the first week of the new year. And we hope that, in some small way, this show will help clear your mind on the outside world for a short while, because while things are still very much on fire we will always find a way to converge and shoot the stuff on t...

2020 just couldn’t end without one more major bombshell announcement, now, could it? After weeks and weeks of rumor-milling and speculation, it finally happened: the sale of Crunchyroll to Sony and Funimation, in an effort to start curbing off the massive debt building up within the big blue Death Star known as AT&T, will cause a seismic shift in the anime industry across the globe, but what will that exactly entail? Nobody rea...

As you might be able to ascertain, this episode isn’t covering a certain major announcement that broke out that has to do with big companies and the like. Suffice it to say, this show was done *before* said announcement was made. And in all honesty, this is more of a buffer show to get to the next one, but we still have plenty to chat about, be it how Demon keeps making all kinds of money, some interesting Blu-ray topics ranging fr...

As we step closer and closer to finally closing the book on the year 2020, it’s important to know the tremendous weight it has brought along with it has been, in so many ways, insurmountable. From the major calamities to the more personal struggles, this year is leaving a gigantic impact on just about everyone. And as we step closer to casting this year off, it is just as important to remember th...

Let’s keep it real, it’s been a VERY long week. A very long and drawn-out week that’s just about worn everyone out. But the cycle for this show continues in earnest, all in spite of an ever-shifting climate or climates. So, for this show, we have the low-down on the Netflix anime presentation event and a certain househusband that’s coming along with it, some dub casts with some wishes being granted, those damn MONKEY PAWS curling u...

It’s finally starting to cool down, the leaves are changing colors, and pumpkin spice lattes have been back on the menu for a while now. Yep, it’s fall, and with it comes an absolutely LOADED anime season for us to dig into – so loaded, in fact, that we had to call on some outside help just to get through most of these shows. So join us, along with Megan from Dub Talk and Sketch from… well, everywhere on the internet, as we go thro...

You would think that we’d install some kind of fire-retardant materials of some kind to make sure our newsroom doesn’t explode when something big happens. Alas, it keeps happening, hence why another episode is coming out so soon. Such a cause of an explosion? Several, actually – a GODZILLA anime, Log Horizon seemingly finding a new home over here, the first look at the latest installment in the Gridman universe, and the long-awaite...

At the heart of it all, this is a very silly show where a group of folks come together to talk and snark about anime, so please keep that in mind when listening to some very hammy and over-exaggerated reactions happen over certain shows. With that in mind, as we prepare for our fall season undertaking, we’re also looking ahead to see what the winter season has in store for us while also taking so...

Even in the midst of cataclysmic chaos the world over, Discotek finds a way to bring us all together to join in the glory of old-ish anime titles coming back for a second chance at fandom life, and with how big of a deal these Discotek Days are you just know that we’re on the case to dive deep into the announcements, the plunder, and all of the joyous wonderment that such a day can bring to all of us. And also on deck, rounding out...
