#Weebthusiast Ep08 – We LOVE the Demon Slayer Mugen Train Movie!!!

Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen . . . I know if I didn’t post the Japanese title, I would probably get flamed for it, but WE WATCHED IT!!!! And it was EFFin AWESOME!!! I don’t know how else to start this description. Crazy, first time in a long time, I’m dedicating a whole episode to anime. Yay!!!

My friends (Lance, Jerome, Cameron) and I decided to get together and talk about how we felt about the movie, themes, symbolism, what it did right/wrong, and all that stuff. So join us as we break it down with a few laughs. Shout out to our friend Anthony who is missing from this video.

Feel free to share your thoughts on the movie if you also rode this anime feelz train down below. . .and do the whole like and subscribe thing if you enjoyed us blabbering about it.

#sorryasianparents EP11 – Bukowski Quotes, Alcohol, and Identity

Hi hi,

This is a recording I did with Capt Ahab, so the audio is a different pitch, and my rip-off graduation photo covers his image. I know it’s annoying but bear with me; it’s a good conversation. And I just learned from Google sensei that it’s bear and not bare since bare means to reveal, and to bear with someone means patience because of actual bears…..fun fact, I guess.

I mentioned this episode in ep #SAP EP09 us two and Salutationsgoodvibrations. Here we talk about identity, self-confidence, college parties, finding yourself, my love for anime and video games, and we even get to see a video of me in high school give my class a light show. We also talked a lot about “New Girl”. Like my other videos, I promise you that this will all make sense….kinda….just trust me.

If you have any stories about finding yourself or wanna share what this Bukowski quote means to you, leave a comment down below. AND!!! (I guess I’m going to have to start saying this even though it makes me cringe) if you like the video, please give me a thumbs up and a sub.

“That’s the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.” – Charles Bukowski

#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.

I Miss Being Weird At Anime Conventions – Weebthusiast

 

Man, I miss anime conventions. But, you know, 2020 was the year of everything getting canceled. In this special clip, Emilio, Garret, and I are just talking about anime cons. We quickly touch on Fanime, Crunchyroll Expo, and Anime Los Angeles. You will get a chance to hear about some of the cool things we have experienced, the weird, and our past/future cosplay ideas. This video isn’t a full episode, but it’s still a great chuckle.

Usually, I would release a whole hour+ episode before I clip the video, but (not going to lie) we kind of went off the rails and just spitball hella subjects. So it didn’t make sense trying to make a coherent episode out of our ADHD conversation. Don’t worry; I’m still going to create long-form content that many won’t watch in the future. I guess this is a good chance for you to see how much of a weeb I am…especially when I get on a rant about after con dances, the H-tai room at Fanime, and other weird stuff I said. So please, enjoy. 

If you also miss anime conventions or have any cosplay ideas, please let me know in the comments below. Bye-bye.

PS, I made a mistake. Not all Anime Cons have free games. You can either borrow a system or play the free games there, but some machines you will have to pay to play (like DDR).

Weebthusiast! Trying Out an Anime Podcast

So….I tried to combine my love of anime and videogames with my natural ability to annoy someone with words. My friends and I are stuck in quarantine so we created a vidcast to share our experiences with anime. I know the video is long, but hopefully, the edits are somewhat funny. I hope.

 

Hey everyone, we are the Weebthusiast! Welcome to our channel and enjoy your stay!

In today’s video: Airec, Erin, Scott, and Justice discuss our humble beginnings into the wonderful world of anime. We give our origin stories to how it all began, stay tuned, and check the vid to find out! Scott kicks off the chat with Wicked City (released 1987) and his first experience with more adult animation. And the boys finish the video with a discussion on the Kenshin series with visceral details from Rurouni Kenshin and the Samurai X OVA’s.

Stick around and don’t forget to go full super Saiyan and Kamehameha that like and subscribe button!
