To continue our recent seasonal theme of reviewing anime with snow in them (see: Fate/Zero), we’re back with a review of the post-apocalyptic iyashikei (meaning healing) series, 2017’s Girls’ Last Tour! But wait, is it possible for an anime to be post-apocalyptic and an iyashikei series at the same time? Excellent question. Listen to the episode and find out.
Austin (@bebopshock) hosts the show this week joined by long-time absentee member, Andrew (@Toggle_Rope), who provides commentary on the series’ iyashikei elements as well as its World War aesthetics. Additionally, we have a brand new guest to the podcast; anime panelist and blogger Robby a.k.a. BokuSatchii (@satchiikoma). You may know him from Twitter and/or his numerous panels at Anime Weekend Atlanta, NakaCon, Anime Lockdown, and Crunchyroll Expo Online. Robby has been a friend of the show for a good bit and was happy to come on to discuss his favorite anime of the 2010s.
You can check out BokuSatchii’s work over on his blog here: https://satchiikoma.wordpress.com/
Topics discussed in the intro include: Belle, The Orbital Children, Dennoh Coil, Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer getting an anime adaptation, and the recent sale of Sentai Filmworks to AMC.
