Summer Viewing Program: Mob Psycho 100 [feat Yata from My Anime Podcast]

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes in their 30s talk about Japanese anime!

Yeah, we know it's October. However, this episode was supposed to be part of our Summer Viewing before we started Season 6. What with Global Warming and living in the Midwest, what even are seasons anyway? We're so excited to bring on one of our favorite people and podcast hosts, Yata from My Anime Podcast! This week we dive into the first three episodes of Mob Psycho 100, and man, did we all have an absolute (psychic) blast. We bet you will, too! At least, we read your minds and saw that you did...or will? Being an esper is hard work.

Watch Mob Psycho 100 on Funimation or Crunchyroll!

Season 6: Episode 1 - Ejector Casket [Gungrave]

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes in their 30s talk about Japanese anime!

Season 6 is here! Before you listen, we want to thank you all for your continued support over the years. We love getting to just sit down and talk about and dissect some of our favorite anime. Some of them are super popular newer anime like One Punch Man and Gurren Lagaan. Others were classics like Trigun and Wolf's Rain. And there was Excel Saga, too! Thank you for taking this journey with us!

This week we start our deep dive into the, perhaps lesser known classic, Gungrave. In this first episode we are introduced to our protagonist, Brandon Heat. And he's packing some major heat as much of the episode is him gunning down weird white creatures called orgman. The first episode of the anime wasn't great, but it gets a heck of a lot better starting at episode 2. Join Andy, Bill, and Josh (gasp!) for the start of our brand new season!

Watch Gungrave on Funimation.

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes in their 30s talk about Japanese anime!

We promise to return with anime content next week and hope that you enjoy this tangent into...the very strange lives of private zoo owners.
