Episode 148 - The Crunchyroll APATHY Awards: Corporate Edition.

“It’s almost like big companies make the worst crap.” – Wade “DankPods” Nixon

We try to move past the Crunchyroll Anime Awards show thing, and every year we find ourselves sinking deeper and deeper into its aura of apathy. We don’t criticize these events out of a place of bad faith or spite, we do it because we know this company can be so much better, but it seems like wishing for the best isn’t what’s best for business because these shows keep happening. At least we have more fun and more well-researched awards things from AniTrendz and r/anime, if you can believe it. And to go along with all of that, we have another case of LOST MEDIA being discovered after nearly 10 years with a once-deleted Evangelion movie dub, Boruto going on break because Pierrot needs it, a double dose of Mononoke that happened recently, and we even pop some champagne in honor of a cult charlatan “transcending” to “the other world.” As we do.
