Toonami Faithful Podcast #143 – It Hurts So Good

We kick off this episode with a few important announcements and a public apology for our April Fool’s antics. Be sure to listen to the first part of the show if you’ve been having trouble downloading the podcast from iTunes. We also discuss some changes to the rewards offered to our Patreon supporters and remind the listeners that this is an explicit podcast on a block targeting mature viewers and why we wont self-censor discussions, especially when mature content comes up during Toonami programming.

This week’s topic is whether or not Toonami should go back having a late night encore but we end up discussing the potential for marathons and movies as well.

During our SAO, KLK and InuYasha recaps we discuss Gamgori’s unique fighting style, the first major visuals edits done to KILL la KILL, Sesshomaru getting a sword with an incredibly uninspired name, how everyone gets a good upgrade in the final stretch except Miroku, fan-disservice in Sword Art Online and Sinon kicking just as much ass as she showed off herself.

Lastly we spend about twenty minutes answering some listener mail that has recently piled up.

    Alright, all fair points but still, sometimes the other shows do do it for gratuity’s sake like SAO does and yet no one minds. Plus anytime someone complains about that in SAO, I always think it’s the animation team’s fault. They’re the ones handing the job off to the sleazy otaku that touch themselves at night. There is no way that shit is in the Light Novels. (16.5 not withstanding. Hell that thing reads like self-deprecating satire to me, it’s that stupid)

    And how can you take Silica getting flipped upside down by a plant seriously? It’s a flying Audrey monster!

    I dunno, maybe I’m just thinking too much on this topic but sometimes I question why we let that shit slide in some shows and other times we don’t.

    EDIT: Also, I’ll buy Log Horizon after it airs on Toonami proper. I don’t get the time to watch it on CrunchyRoll.
