#weebthusiast EP13 – Slice of Life Anime and Attack on Titan S4P2 Ending Reactions

Hi hi, on this episode, I had some new faces with me as we discussed some of our favorite Slice of Life animes and the ending of Attack on Titans S4P2. With my friends Patrick and Josh, we talk about what animes made us cry and why we love Haikyu, Your Lie in April, and (of course!!!) Shingeki no Kyojin. The first half is pretty lighthearted, but towards the end, we pulled a college discourse about the themes within AoT and why they are essential for us to think about as our world continues to repeat history.

If you have any inputs or want to share some of your top picks of Slice of Life or wanna tell us to bugger off with our hardons for AoT, comment below.

                                                Animes We Talked About:

My Dress-up Darling
Haiykuu
A Silent Voice
Love Hina
Run with the Wind
Attack on Titan
Jujutsu Kaisen
Made in Abyss
The Promised Neverland
Josee, the Tiger and the Fish
Clannad: After Story
Ahiru no Sora
Ride Your Wave
Beast Stars
86
Saikano

#Weebthusiast EP12 – The Anime We Watched w/ Erick, Noble, and Will

Hello, hello. I am back with some new faces. This video is a cut from a #sorryasianparents recording where we ended a 3-hour conversation with anime. Will, Noble, and Erick joined me discussing growing up in the Central Valley and the anime we watched. The whole video is about an hour and a half, but I felt like it was a crime to cut some of the laughs out. So, essentially, this video is four men in their 30s gushing over Naruto, Bleach, and other classic animes…and our shared experiences of “accidentally” finding La Blue Girl and Bible Black.

So I hope you enjoy! Also, feel free to throw in some names of the animes you watched growing up in the comments.

#Weebthusiast EP11 – Anime Los Angeles Recap with Emilio

Well, well, well, after taking a year off, Anime Los Angeles returned last weekend at the Long Beach Convention Center. I, of course, went and did a little cosplaying, made some friends, and even had my own slice of life moment. IT WAS AMAZING. So in this video, you’ll see me recount (the stuff that I’m allowed to say on YouTube) to Emilio as we share a few laughs about my Weebventures!

Also, I say nerds and weebs a lot in this video but I say it out of love. Because, as you already know, I’m a huge geek and share the highs and lows of what it means to be a part of this culture. So, I jest.

#Weebthusiast EP10.01 – Emilio, Mario, and I Bro-Down Over Demon Slayer…Again

**** WARNING: THIS IS FULL OF SPOILERS ***

In another segment of “Emilio Watches Anime,” we talk about his reaction to Kimetsu no Yaiba and the movie Mugen Ressha-hen. This isn’t an actual name for a segment, but it might as well be. My good friend Mario joined us for this recording of two average bros just talking about how awesome Demon Slayer is and why Tanjiro is da man! We share a few laughs and tears as we talk about why the Best Husbando title goes to Kyojuro Rengoku.

I know I already did an episode on Mugen Train, but we didn’t get to have Emilio’s smile, I mean input, on the series/movies. This is part one of two (I am pretty limited on time due to work), and the second half, where Emilio educates us on why mouse-and-keyboard is superior to controllers in FPS, will come out shortly. Get really for bickering of two inputs in the next one…gonna be a lot of Destiny 2 and CSGO talk…

If you have any comments on why Rengoku is the best or why you think Tanjiro is overrated, leave a comment below.

Also, I am still unsure how DMCA works so I did not include any pictures or videos of the anime…I don’t know if I’m ready to take on the YouTube ban police yet.

#Weebthusiast EP09 – Emilio FINALLY Watches Shingeki no Kyojin So We’re Geeking Out

**** WARNING: THIS IS FULL OF SPOILERS ***
IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN, DO NOT WATCH THIS

So…It finally happened; Emilio watched Attack on Titan. In one week, this man powered through all the current seasons (so far). We had a fantastic time going over some of the themes in the anime, what we thought was cool, and who we hated. There really isn’t much structure to this episode because we’re both just too excited to get it all out there. So fair warning, we will be jumping around…a lot.

Also, I am still unsure how DMCA works so I did not include any pictures or videos of the anime…I don’t know if I’m ready to take on the YouTube ban police yet.

#Weebthusiast​ EP07 – The Justice League Snyder Cut and the DC Universe (Comics and Animated Movies)

Hi hi,

We’re back again with some more comics stuff. A few weeks ago, the long-awaited Snyder Cut of the Justice League dropped. So you know we’re (obviously) going to be talking about it. It will be I, Emilio, and the man who brought the BDE for this conversation, Justice. 

In this episode, we will touch on the history of the Snyder Cut, toxic fandom, Whedon getting canceled and accountability in Hollywood, and a bunch of other things. But the majority of it will be us fanboying over some of the phenomenal DC Comics storylines that haven’t been brought into live-action yet (i.e., Flash Point, The Button, Death in the Family, Death of the Family, Infinite Crisis). 

Lots of laughs in this ep because we have lots of passion for the DC Universe and the stories of the heroes we grew up with. There is a link to Comics Explained video of The Button arc. So I hope you enjoy us three trying to explain some of the multiverses. So leave a comment below about some of your favorite DC arcs and **sigh** you know, like and subscribe.

#Weebthusiast EP06 – GME Recap, Shingeki no Kyojin, Jujutsu Kaisen, DC Animated Movies, and Arby’s

spoNx and I are BACK!!! It’s just us this time as some of the other guys take a little break. In this video…well, we’re kind of all over the place. We start with recapping the last time we met up (GameStop, MEME’in our dreams into reality) and then debate why manga/anime seems to be getting more popular in the West. If you’re expecting to learn something, you’re in the wrong place since we kinda just skim the topics. Of course, we talk about some of the hottest anime that I’m currently watching since I forgot to tell spoNx which animes to watch beforehand. Then, we end the video on our favorite fast food places and why Arb’s has the best marketing.

So, I hope you enjoy two guys just taking the piss out of everything and have a few laughs with us. If you wanna tell us what animes you’re watching, comment down below. Also!!! I reference a few content creators, and down below will be a list of those I mentioned . . . in case you want to know more.
