Welcome to Third Impact Anime!
Third Impact Anime is a group of simple otaku who love exploring the artistry, history, and community of anime. Hosted by Austin (@bebopshock) and his many awesome friends (meet them below!). Keep up with us on Twitter @TI_Anime!

Please check out our review index to see what topics we’ve written about or discussed.
You can find him most easily on twitter @bebopshock and listen to him spout anime thoughts(?)
When not anime-ing, Austin enjoys drinking black coffee, replaying Kingdom Hearts, petting dogs, alternating between A Day to Remember and CHVRCHES on Spotify, collecting souvenir flattened pennies, and admiring his media shrine to Mrs. Doubtfire.
Austin’s go-to Anime: Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, FLCL, and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
Sully’s raison d’être is to bring the idea of the yappie (young anime person) into the 21st century.
A lifelong obsession with Nintendo games combined with a fateful introduction to Dragon Ball Z in the first grade hooked him on Japanese media culture for the long haul.
Sully holds a BS in retail and consumer science, and was the president and event coordinator of UNCG’s Science Fiction Fantasy Federation, as well as a frequent collaborator with the UNCG Japanese Club.
If he’s not watching anime, he’s probably re-watching The Golden Girls for the one millionth time, agonizing over Rocky Horror Show memorabilia with other collectors, or trying desperately to relax.
Sully can be found on twitter @calva_kun.
Sully’s Go-to Anime: Ouran High School Host Club, Yatterman, Urusei Yatsura, Blue Exorcist, and of course, Sailor Moon.
Jon actually acquired a BS in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics (we’re serious). He’s also participated in the CampusMovieFest competition, winning the Jury Award twice and his first film winning Best Actress. He also has credits for post audio and editing on IMDB.
Once he became part of Borderline Panels, he quickly found out there’s more to appreciating and understanding anime and the culture surrounding it aside from simply watching it. On his quest for new anime and knowledge, he’s joined up with Third Impact Anime, bringing his gaming knowledge, editing expertise, and whatever shenanigans he happens to be up to.
When Jon’s not busy not sleeping, he enjoys listening to and composing music, playing video games, editing videos, making very bad jokes/gifs, and hanging out with people as much as he physically can. You can listen to him on the Third Impact Anime Podcast, especially on his (former) sub-show, Two Guys and Video Games with Ryan.
Jon’s Go-to Anime: Full Metal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop, Nichijou, Persona 4: The Animation
Go-to Game Series: Star Fox, Metroid, Pokemon, Persona, The Legend of Zelda, Danganronpa
