Episode 49 - Casper Forgot His New Name

I think I have apologized way too many times already, so I am just going to move on and welcome you back to the show. This was an accomplishment to even bring to you guys. Though there are different opinions as to who the real Doombitch is in our show, we tend to lose every time Casper happens to be there. Which is sad since he usually does a great job being on the show. This episode is just one example of that fact. In this episode, we delve into the mysterious anime known as Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, or When They Cry - Higurashi.

(0:00 - 3:29) Intro

I forgot exactly when this was recorded. I think the room we recorded this episode in was cursed or something. We lost two episodes before in that same room and we were lucky that this one got saved.

(3:30 - 9:52) Discussion (Your final warning)

From here on in, it is spoilers for the beginning of the series.

(9:53 - 15:18) Discussion (Casey and friends)

Here are most of the characters you are going to be caring about. They all have their own quirks. It may take some people a while for them to get used to them. I will admit that some of them act cute for the sake of acting cute, but once the more serious moments of the series come, you get to see that there are more to these characters. I am kind of upset that the dub of the series did not live up to the level that the Japanese actors set. They basically had the B squad for the dub. If you guys are wondering what I am referring to in the title for this section, you can check this link. (WARNING: SUPER SPOILER. MAKE SURE YOU SAW THE FIRST ARC OF THE SERIES)

(15:19 - 1:20:18) Discussion (Now you are screwed)

No holding back here. If you are reading this before listening to the episode, this is where most of the action happens. To sum up, if you don't want to be spoiled: This is series that will keep you on your toes. You may get confused in the first couple of episodes, but you have to give them credit for the way they are telling this story.

Damn. 50 for me since I screwed up the name of the that demon god...

(1:20:19 - 1:30:17) Discussion (Our TIPS and opinions)

Here is the forum where all the hints and clues to the mystery of this show are.

Here is the trailer for the first movie



(1:30:18 - 1:34:35) Discussion (J-Horror)

I don't know why Casper likes Imprint. If you want to be disturbed, go ahead and watch it.

Nice shoutout in your notes there Josh...

Orange Anime Podcast FJ, if you can, can let the music run on your promo a bit before making it fade out. Just makes it easier on me since I don't have to do it myself. I know it's lazy of me, but its an easy fix.
The Unofficial One Piece Podcast FMA? OK...

While I am here, I might as well pimp out Jammer's AniMovie Podcast. I, Doctor, made a guest appearance on the first two episodes. We talked about Avatar and Suzumiya Haruhi among other things. I guess you can consider this a promo until he makes one for his show.

(1:35:45 - 1:41:03) Discussion (More horror talk)

Ah..Hell Girl. Another unique show. I'm sure I will go at length about it sooner or later. Seeing as this got rescued by Funimation, I would advise you to buy the complete first season on our Amazon widget. Who knows? We may be able to at least get the second season over here in the States. So, what are people's opinions on the horror genre in anime? Email us what you think.

(1:41:04 - 1:42:57) Closing

Note to self: Don't leave the only copy of an episode in a friend's hard drive...

Yeah good show, it reminds me that I only saw like 10 episodes of Higurashi when it first came around. I gotta go back and check out the rest.
