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.
Jahmere Durham and the “Laughing Man” a.k.a Michael Martinez are the hosts of the 2 Guys and Mic podcast and bring a comedic yet informative approach to their frequent rants on anime, manga, and Japanese culture.
