Season 7: Episode 17 - American-Made Eva

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

Welcome to the second half of this two-part saga! What does the crew have to do when an Eva turns on them? The answer isn't a pleasant one, especially for Shinji. We may have another good episode on our hands as we review Neon Genesis Evangelion Episode 18, "Life and Death Decisions."

Season 7: Episode 16 - Aliens vs Angels

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

Welcome to the first of a two part set of Evangelion episodes. This week we find out that there will be a new Eva pilot. And the only one that doesn't seem to figure it out is Shinji. Not a ton happens in Episode 17, "Fourth Child," but we still have a ton of fun breaking down the episode. And going off on the occasional tangent.

Season 7: Episode 15 - Puddle of Angel

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

Is Evangelion starting to get good? Or is it just getting so weird and surreal that we're tricking ourselves into thinking it's actually a good anime? Either way, Episode 16, "The sickness unto death, and then..." is actually pretty enjoyable! We have our audio issues figured out, and we came through with a new episode in just a week this time! We hope you all enjoy our deep dive into this one. Bill even has a pretty in-depth theory at the end of this review.

Season 7: Episode 14 - Womb with a View

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

We're back! Apologies at the top here. Andy's audio went wrong during recording, so we took extra time to try and make it the best we can. We got the issue figured out in our later episodes.

This week we are tackling two different episodes. The first is a clip show with some added bits of information and weirdness, and the second is a much more interesting episode with a few problematic and confusing moments. So basically, it's business as usual with Evangelion. Check out our takes on Episode 14, "Seele, the Seat of the Soul," and Episode 15, "Lies and Silence."

Season 7: Episode 13 - Gold, Frankincense, and C4

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

Man, the bad episodes keep on coming. This one was so bad, one of the three hosts left the call partway through. You'll have to listen to find out which one (though it may be easy to guess). This week Evangelion attempts a thrilling hacker story akin to The Matrix or...Sneakers? You learn about this movie Sneakers from Matt this time around, too. Honestly, we get off topic a lot, and it's more fun than talking about Episode 13 of Neon Genesis Evangelion, "Angel Infiltration."

Season 7: Episode 12 - Achilles Eyeball

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

It's another stinker episode of Evangelion this week. So we're a little extra goofy to make up for it. Please excuse Matt's cold. He's feeling much better now. And Andy feels better after finishing up this episode. We promise the anime does get better eventually! For now, join us in our discussion of Episode 12 of Neon Genesis Evangelion, "A Miracle's Worth."

Season 7: Episode 11 - No R Kelly Jokes

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

Well, this week's Neon Genesis Evangelion episode is kind of a dud. We spend most of the time trying not to make jokes that we probably shouldn't. Join Andy, Matt, and Bill as they break down Episode 11, "In the Still Darkness." Expect lots of crawling around lost and confused. Fitting for how the hosts feel this week.

Season 7: Episode 10 - Lousy Second Impact

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

I wish we could say that this week's Evangelion episode was better than last week's. But that would be a lie. Bill, Matt, and Andy make the best of it and watch it so you don't have to. This week Asuka goes diving in search for an angel...fish...fetus? Yeah, I can't make this crap up, folks. Just listen to our discussion of "The Magma Diver" to figure out what the heck is going on.

Season 7: Episode 9 - Dancing With Violence

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

This week we bring you an episode with two sides. On one hand, the episode has some of the most fun character development of anything we have seen in the series thus far. On the other hand, this episode is wrought with some social issues and narrative choices that leave a bad taste in our mouths. Laugh, cringe, and dance along with us as we review Episode 9 of Neon Genesis Evangelion, "Mind, Matching, Moment."

Season 7: Episode 8 - Shinji Got Curves

Welcome to Tooning Japanese, a podcast where three dudes talk about Japanese anime!

The second children (that still sounds stupid) has arrived! Asuka has arrived, and she isn't going to join the crew quietly. In the 8th episode, "Asuka Arrives in Japan," Shinji and Asuka are forced to work together to take down an angel that emerges from the ocean depths. Oh, and Shinji wears a very...form-fitting suit. Why is it that anime creators are so horny all of the time? Either way, give this week's episode a listen!
