The last episode was supposed to come out in February but didn’t come out until March, so in order to make up for lost time we are double-dipping and continuing on with THE DECADE IN REVIEW~!, as we look back on the year 2015. This is quite a task, considering that a year’s worth of world events seem to have already happened between January 2020 and March 2020 alone.
Introduction (0:00 – 21:26)
Following up on where we ended last episode, we talk about some of the anime-related things that have been canceled or postponed since the last time we released an episode. It’s because of the COVID-19 virus pandemic. As a disclaimer: this was recorded weeks ago, and the situation has dramatically changed since we talked about this (and will continue to change).
Promo: Right Stuf Anime (21:26 – 23:32)
We understand that several million people are now unemployed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic (including some of us), so if you need to delete your Patreon pledges or minimize non-essential purchases then absolutely do so. But if you have the financial means and you are realizing that the Crunchyroll and Netflix (and Youtube, and Twitch, and…) servers can’t reliably deliver 1080p streams on account of all the simultaneous users, consider some physical media purchases to get you through this time. Right Stuf is–for now, anyway–still open, and still shipping media orders in a timely fashion. If you order through Amazon, they may take a month to get to filling that order.
The DECADE IN REVIEW~!: 2015 (23:32 – 2:39:59)
Oh I’m sorry, do you have something BETTER to do with your free time other than listen to us reminisce about titles of note from 2015? Bearing in mind that these titles are listed IN NO ORDER OF IMPORTANCE, such that the biggest, most memorable, most notable thing may not be mentioned first or last? Or at all? No. No, we didn’t think so. Anyway, there are so many freaking shows now so if we either missed something or grossly mis-characterized the truth about a title that was mentioned, let’s hear it in the comments.
