Harem anime has plagued the 2GAM podcast since it began 5 years ago, (or at least one of its members). Their plots are shot out of a cannon in exchange for poorly done fan service, showing viewers that females have no common sense whatsoever. Luckily, Infinite Stratos is not one of those series. It comes close at times, wavering back and forth between good and barely salvageable, almost like a professional tightrope walker. The guys review the show and discuss what would happen if IS units were real. Jahmere makes a mistake in regards to Canada’s relation to the United Nations. The question is asked, “How dangerous is Alaska?” Mike’s after high school practices are called into question. Also mentioned on this episode, GunXsWORD, Big O’s summoning, Japan’s obsession with Island Schools and what would happen if American schools had boxing teams.

Hey guys. I'm Jahmere Durham, producer and co-host of the 2GAM podcast! I like watching anime (obviously), playing fighting games, and watching sports. Please continue to listen to the 2GAM podcast premiering every monday on the A3K network.

    Just want to say that im British(well, Scottish) and that cecilia is my least favourite character, she is annoying and a pain.
    Her I.s. Is awesome though.

  • Emblyon

    Wasn’t the gospel an unmanned unit that tabane hacked to go haywire?
    It has no relation to the…….white knight(?), it was chifuyu who shit down the middles in unit 1, which housed core number 0, which was placed inside byakushki for ichika, that probably why he can use it, because it belonged to his sister or somthing along those lines.

    • Jahmere Durham

      Well keep in mind this is the review for Season 1. We haven’t seen season 2 yet and that stuff isnt explained in the anime for S1

      • Emblyon

        Join the discussion…I haven’t seen season 2 either. That was all from season 1, I think from the last episode.

        • Jahmere Durham

          I don’t remember that beign explained in the last ep. The conversation with Tabane and Chifuyu was filled with riddles.

          • Emblyon

            I just checked the last ep since its been a while.
            -the core used for byak was 001.(my mistake)
            -the I.s. At the exam was controlled by tabane so her sister could get her friend back.
            -tabane hacked the gospel, a prototype unmanned unit so her sister could get a big debut.
            -tabane doesn’t know why byak moves.

            Ichika and chifuyu look more like clones than siblings,don’t they?

          • Jahmere Durham

            I thought they were twins.

          • Emblyon

            naw, they’re meant to be a few years apart.
            though that clone comment was half joking

  • Devin Wolfe

    I need to find the time to watch this.

  • Donald Ashe

    Alaskan here, sun is fine, but in some towns the sun doesn’t set in mid summer. Will have to watch this now. Thanks for reviewing it.

    • Jahmere Durham

      No prob dude. Thanks for listening.

  • Emblyon

    i just remembered the name of the anime where the main character is a “fat-ass”.
    it’s called accel world, from the creator of sword art online.

    • Jahmere Durham

      I thought about that after the cast was over.

  • Brandon Smith

    Is it Accel World? I think that might be the one mike was thinking of.

    • Bingo! I was just coming here to mention that. You want an anime with a fat MC, that’s the one! OR you could watch Rowdy Sumo Wrestlet Matsutaro, but I would advise everyone against that.

      I prefer it to SAO, also created by the writer of Accel World.

    Who needs IS when we have The Centurions. Power Extreme, bitch.

  • Here’s what I think about diplomatic immunity
