I didn't care for this episode. At all. Between the Abridged guys patting themselves on the back and the Daizenshuu EX guys acting like drooling fanboys and fangirls, the whole thing had me rolling my eyes. And the thought that the next episode of the podcast will be more of the same? Ugh.
To be fair, the interview portion was ~35 minutes of a ~73 minute show. Sure, it's the majority of the content contained there-in, but *I* think there was some great content at the beginning of the show... so... not a total wash...?
If it sounds like we overwhelming like/enjoy something... well... I guess that should/could/mightbe/Idunno/something REFRESHING for SOME portion of the audience who whines that we "don't like ANYTHING" (which is total bunk, but whatever). Hell, it was refreshing TO ME to have a mostly-positive upbeat conversation about a fandom-output-product like that.

Also to be fair, we did address in the interview how the parody shifted over time to more of, what I called right in the show, a "legitimate dub" of the series rather than JOKE JOKE JOKE.Captain Awesome wrote:in my opinion they seem to have kind of lost the balance between comedy and narrative that they had down so perfectly for the first five or six episodes, I find the show enjoyable enough to continue to watch it, but I haven't laughed at a single joke since the Arlia episode (which was a fucking masterpiece).
I wouldn't say "better" (which is what you're implying... and, well, perhaps it would be "better" for you, but not necessarily to everyone else). Kinda like I addressed with TFS for their style of parody jokes, there's something FOR EVERYONE in their episodes... just like what we're trying to do. You're probably NOT going to like EVERY SINGLE LAST EPISODE we do, because we're going to talk about different parts of the franchise and its fandom. If you have no interest in cosplay, you probably didn't like our cosplay episode. If you have no interest in music, you probably didn't like our music episodes. If you have no interest in Evolution, you probably didn't like those episodes.Dogasu wrote:But really...is there really nothing else for you guys to fill your podcast time with?
With over 25 years (and growing) of franchise history that continues each and every day, there's a lot to cover! If you're just cherry-picking the ones you DON'T like, then hopefully we're still on track ^_~.
I'm still standing behind my own "drooling" self-approval of:
fans that can speak properly + not TOTAL dickwads + halfway know what they're talking about + decent audio recording + pretty consistent weekly schedule + lots of cool things to talk about = This was a triumph.
(In the end, you know I'm cool with your comments. You sigh and roll your eyes because you love!)
