Ashley and Luke exchange roles in a podcast where they watch landmark anime Neon Genesis Evangelion. Along with watching the episodes they discuss it's characters and themes, as well as getting into the usual tangents.
I love all my friends!
After worrying about all the ways it could become a complete mess Ashley & Luke are happy to see that FLCL: Alternative keeps it's thoughtfulness and fun throughout. The planet is being heated up by Medical Mechanica and the rich and powerful are leaving the Earth. Kana is more concerned about trying to make everything stay the same, whether it's with the boy she likes or her best friend. Unfortunately thinks change, romance fades and sometimes friends aren't what they seem. Luke and Ashley love the story and the emotion but the still wish Haruko was brought in more naturally.
In this city, I will.
After the disappointment of season 1 and the nothing of season 2 Luke and Ashley aren't looking forward to the last season of the show. They're expecting more horny teens with no character who suck. So they're very surprised to find a collection of characters they really love! Kana and her friends are a fun collection of non-horny teens who are layered and support each other. As they try to find out they're doing next they're confronted with questions about maturity, helping friends and being themselves in ways that work way better then any previous season. That said it's not all great, Haruko is still around and while she has grown up a bit she still can't help but be a creep, and an undercurrent of fatphobia hurts Mossan who is a great character otherwise. We also talk about how Kana is totally gay, how people are leaving Earth, and worry about how this season might disappoint us again.
