Season 1: Episode 22 - Puchu Sandwich [8/29/16]

Original Release Date: August 29, 2016

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

It seems we’ve hit a low point in our reviews of Excel Saga.  Both Bill and Andy were not as impressed with Episode 22, “Invasion, Mother.”  Josh, however, loved the hell out of it.  So you get to enjoy Josh talk all about this wacky love letter to Leiji Matsumoto!

Original Release Date: August 21, 2016

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

Well, this week it’s just Bill and Andy because this episode killed Josh.  We’re currently accepting resumes for a new host…well, not really…I think?  We’re remote again this week, and the two guys talk about Episode 21 of Excel Saga, “Visually Appealing Type.”  Even though it’s a pretty bad episode of Excel Saga, we dissect the heck out of it with some great research (Sorry, Josh).

Original Release Date: August 15, 2016

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

Episode 20 of Excel Saga is another recap episode, so we decided to do a variety of things, including a mini review, a super banter segment, answering fan questions, and a trivia contest between Bill and Josh!  This episode is super long for your enjoyment!  Wait…that sounded wrong…  Also, we’d like to apologize for postponing our interview with Jessica Calvello.  We are working on scheduling a time for us to talk with her again.
