Some Unnamed Anime Podcast Episode 5: Living in the Idol Generation

I hope you enjoyed the month vacation from SUAP and we’re back and longer than ever. Ever since we decided to do this episode I was quite excited and it went fairly well despite my sound mixer going a little crazy. So I apologize for the sound difficulties in the third part.

In this month’s episode talk over how the recent idol group boom has begun to influence and shape how idols have appeared in anime. We do a bit of a history lesson and take a tour through the Big 3: Idolmaster, Love Live!, and Aikatsu! In general we give some stances on what each series really has going for it and just in case you’ve been curious about any it gives you a bit of background. Fans of each series can also listen to me either bash or talk up your series. This episode does feature explicit language, as always.

People on the Show
Leek aka “THE Aikatsu! Ojisan” – Just like in the Western voice acting episode, I really take the helm and talk a lot in this episode. While editing there was a point where I stopped and thought very long and hard about why I know all these things.

Uki aka “Johnny Bepp’s #1 Fan” – Uki happens to be acquainted with all the Big Three and gives a generally fair and balanced opinion on all of them. Surprisingly I have no jokes to crack about how he behaved this episode. Be sure to follow him on twitter @ukkinano.

Agumike aka “Here to defend Idolmaster” – Mike is around this time because I generally know him as fairly familiar with Idolmaster. So because I do a bad job of saying anything good about it, Mike is around to give a good summary for all of you. But he’s still a bitch for not watching Aikatsu! in the two months we gave him to do it. Be sure to follow him on twitter @gabumike.
