#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

#sorryasianparents EP15 – When Are You Too Old For Your Hobbies and The Rise of Nerd Culture

Hi hi, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted a video on this channel (life is still crazy), but I’m still here and bugging my friends to make podcasts with me. In this episode, Laura and Lance join me in a conversation about the rise of nerd culture and how things are…better? I guess. We also dive into discussions about what it means to be an American and find your identity and sexual identity during the growing pains of high school.

About an hour was cut out of this episode for the sake of time and will be released as shorter clips later. So watch out for those.

Comment below if you have any geeky stories you want to share, or tell us what it means to be an American.

#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.

#sorryasianparents EP14 | Affected Our Careers, Goals, and Dreams

Hello hello!

It has been some time since my last upload. I’m finally back in LA after traveling for work the previous three months…and, you know, trying to get my life together. On my first video back from hiatus, my two amazing friends, Lance and Garrett, will be joining me to discuss how our careers and goals have changed in the aftermath of Rona. 

This episode will talk about The Great Resignation and some of the challenges that come with changing vocation or dreams or whatever we’re doing to pay the bills. We will discuss how our mentality has changed since our time in college and how it’s changed since facing a pandemic where we had to quarantine for 15 months. Along with the talk about change, we briefly touch upon mental health because these times have been hard for everyone. Below will be a list of resources if you need someone to talk to or a helping hand. 

Comment below if you want to share how your career, goals, and dreams have shifted since the 2020 catastrophe. And also do the thumbs up and subscribe and all that stuff.
