We also did an Openings panel, but just like with Florida Anime Experience Gerald’s laptop crashed midway through so he has no saved playlist. Will it go 3 for 3 come Otakon next month? The Stupid Video Panel OF DOOM! playlist probably exists, and with any luck should be available to view on the Anime Hell blog shortly.

Anime World Order Show # 137 – Open the Box! Open the Box! Open the Box!

After missing an entire month, we have returned. It seemed only fitting that after being that late on an episode, Clarissa review a series that’s entirely about doing precisely that: the recently concluded Shirobako.

Introduction (0:00 – 48:20)
It’s May, so to prove how timely we are we respond to not one but TWO emails sent to us in May…2014. One has to do with everyone’s favorite least favorite topic, bad anime for group viewing purposes. But the landscape has changed between when we first started this podcast NINE YEARS AGO and today. What’s the deal with Americans in anime (F YEAH!)? And why’s it so hard to represent anime online without coming across as a freak, anyway? Why doesn’t anime seem to be truly integrated into the modern geek monoculture? The answer requires we don glasses and start drawing incomprehensible flowcharts on a chalkboard. At some point we recount our times at Florida Anime Experience 2015 as well as Clarissa’s guest appearance on the Pseudo-Random Podcast for anime/manga. Actually, her episode isn’t out just yet. BUT SOMEDAY.

Review: Shirobako (48:20 – 1:26:19)
It’s anime about making anime, only this time nobody’s being bloodily murdered at their desk and the mad automotive races to the studio contain sick drifts instead of Shonen Bat. GO EAT KRISPY KREMES, YOU KRISPY KREME MOTHERFUCKERS.

We don’t know what the next episode will be about, but it will definitely NOT be about R*botech. The less we talk about that, the better a chance it can cease to exist. Warner Brothers is already helping us along in this aspect, as the official website has been offline for the last three weeks. THANKS, WARNER BROTHERS! PS: go see Mad Max: Fury Road also known as Doomsday 2: Fury Road, which is shaping up to be one of this year’s “Daryl Surat genre” films.
