Season 1: Episode 17 - Samurai Stem Cells [7/18/16]

Original Release Date: July 18, 2016

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

Mark your calendars, ladies and gentlemen.  This is the first time that all three hosts actually really liked the same episode of Excel Saga.  Wow.  Episode 17 covers the amazing take on the world of cartoons and anime, “Animation USA.”  Excel and Hyatt travel to America where they meet Pedro’s son Sandora, who just wants to become an anime artist.  Too bad they didn’t tell him he can’t do Japanimation because he’s not Japanese.

Season 1: Episode 16 - Ropponmatsu Fusion Dance [7/11/16]

Original Release Date: July 11, 2016

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

Ropponmatsu 1 and 2 return yet again, and this time they spark up a “close friendship” with Excel and Hyatt.  Josh gives us the run down of this week’s episode of Excel Saga, “Take Back Love!”  This one is a good one, folks, even if there was more outtake material that didn’t make it into the episode than actual episode.

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

We experience a bit of deja vu in this week’s episode of Excel Saga, “Prop Memorial.”  Not only is the plot basically the same as last week, but we see the return of Ropponmatsu #1!  Bill drinks his way through his review, and we have some laughs along the way.  Join us!

Original Release Date: June 27, 2016

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

Things are changing as we enter the second half of Excel Saga.  Among those changes are a brand new voice actress for Excel and new supporting characters, none of which are all that exciting.  Tonight Andy reviews Episode 14, “Prop.”  Oh yeah, and Josh is back.

Original Release Date: June 19, 2016

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

We’re breaking the mold in more than one way this week!  First of all, instead of a review of Episode 13 of Excel Saga, “The New Year’s-End Party Hidden Talent Contest,” we have our own clip show for you!  We’ve compiled outtakes as well as some of our favorite Excel Saga lines.  The other change up?  A new host!  Well, sorta.  Listen to find out.

Season 1: Episode 12 - Oddly Textured [6/13/16]

Original Release Date: June 13, 2016

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

Time to look for clues, folks!  Episode 12 of Excel Saga, “Big City, Part 2,” takes a crack at detective anime!  Josh gives us a breakdown of the episode, in which the civil servants join a 40-year-old murder investigation with the eccentric Purrin!

Season 1: Episode 11 - Reverse Deliverance [6/5/16]

Original Release Date: June 5, 2016

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

This week we tackle the world of teenage problems (as if Andy hasn’t dealt with his fair share of that already).  This week Bill trudges through Episode 11 of Excel Saga, “Butt Out, Youth!”  While Bill isn’t a fan, Josh and Andy really love this one!  Excel and Hyatt become teachers and go back to the high school from Episode 1.  They become teachers of a class of roughians, and they also try to help the baseball team make it to Koshien.  A zany episode all around!

Season 1: Episode 10 - Perhaps Menchi’s an Otter [5/30/16]

Original Release Date: May 30, 2016

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

Join us on a great adventure–Menchi’s Great Adventure!  Andy drags his co-hosts through a somewhat offensive and underwhelming episode of Excel Saga, but at least it’s filled with 50% more dog buttholes!  In this episode, Menchi escapes Excel’s apartment and meets up with a ragtag group of stray dogs.  They help Menchi find her former master, a seemingly sweet old man.  When they manage to find him, however, things are far from what she expected.

Season 1: Episode 9 - We Already Did That Bit [5/22/16]

Original Release Date: May 22, 2016

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

Once again, we’re sorry for taking last week off!  This week we bring you our review of Episode 9 of Excel Saga, “Bowling Girls!”  Surprisingly, all three hosts actually liked this one!  Excel and Hyatt take jobs at a bowling alley in order to figure out if it’s the most popular sport in Japan.  Unfortunately, ACROSS goes face to face with another idealogical organization, Stick and Ball!  Sports and ball jokes abound!

Season 1: Episode 8 - A Little Butt Butt [5/8/16]

Original Release Date: May 8, 2016

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

Bill goes for his third attempt at doing a review, and he struggles through one of our not so favorite episodes, “Increase Ratings Week.”  In an attempt to boost their ratings and bring in female viewers (yeah right…), Excel and the girls take over, forcing every single male character (but one) from getting screen time!  There’s hot weather, a little girl assassin, bikinis, and plenty of fan service!  Enjoy!
