Although Studio Bones is mostly known for FMA, and Darker than Black it had a sleeper hit in 2004’s Kurau: Phantom Memory. Although it’s a show with a weak start, Kurau soon delivers on Bones classic interweaving plot mechanic which ties in all the characters story lines together. Decent plot progression leaves enough so that the viewer will want to see what happens next episode, but the pace may be a little too slow for some fans. The guys discuss Robin Williams death and his films, some disney movies, Jahmere tells the tales of how he came into possession of this series at a local convention, what would happen if a voice actor draft was real, and the crew talks about mikes sleeping habits.

    Zathura was the name of jumanji 2 right?

  • Emblyon

    Do you think they’ll put “in memory of robin Williams” at the becoming or end of night at the museum 3?

    • Devin Wolfe

      I would say it’s very likely.

    • Absolutely, at the end.

  • Emblyon

    What anime can you name in which the characters parents die in a less than cliches way such as a car accident?
    I’ve got-
    -gundam 00
    -mai/my otome/Z-hime
    -elfen lied
    -gurren lagann
    -fate/zero & stay night
    -sacred seven
    -attack on titan
    -rinne no LaGrange
    -blue exorcist
    -uhhhh……….does DBZ count?

  • From memory, I was going to say Terabithia at first, then I thought Zathura. I was thinking of the Xenosaga sequel. Fuck you, not Xenogears! Get out of my head!

    More people knew about The Birdcage than they do about Aladdin 3. I didn’t even see Alladin 2. I did watch the animated series, though. What’s wrong with me?

    When Robin Williams gives the kid an Evangelion toy, that’s not a commercial. That’s a film. What commercial would there be where they mention Neon Genesis Evangelion? Evamart?

    WoW giving him 3 tribute characters in their new expansion is pretty awesome.

    If Mike wasn’t doing this podcast, would he be up on anything at all, besides LoL?

    Mulaney’s going to get fucking canceled. It looks like bad canned laughter Fox, not actually funny Fox.

    • Jahmere Durham

      Titus was funny FOX

      • Titus was, also, I don’t know, a decade ago, and cancelled after a couple seasons.

        • Yeah, but Titus was cancelled for pissing off the suits, not for it not being funny.

          That said, yeah, FOX ain’t been funny in a long time. Except Axe Cop.

          • Yeah, Titus was funny, but it’s one of those shows they fucked up with.

            Mulaney looks like a waste of this dude. It feels like he finally got a deal for his own show, then they put their boot all over his neck, to make something generic and humorless. Even if it was funny, I can’t put up with a laugh track anymore.

            I don’t have cable, so all I got was a few episodes of Axe Cop before they fucking pulled ADHD. I like Bob’s Burgers. That’s about it for their comedy.

        • Jahmere Durham

          Yea it shouldnt have been. It was great.
