TangleCast 31: Otaku Diet

After a serious two-week series on homosexualityJP (Japesland)KazeJack (R86), and Casey (CutsceneAddict) decided to take it easy by re-introducing one of our favorite features from our old podcast: Otaku Diet.

Every one or two months, when we cover what otaku materials we’re consuming, we’ll be talking about the manga, anime, visual novel, light novel, or Japanese video game (and more, as Casey has proven this week!) that has been recently on our minds. This week we get into some interesting banter covering the anime, video game, and collectible industries!

Oh, and check out Casey’s ridiculously huge figure collection here!

Please feel free to leave your opinions on what’s been in our diets, and, of course, share your diet in the comments section below!

As always, every episode of The TangleCast will be covering a different topic, from anime reviews, to discussions on spirituality, to listener mail, and everything in between. Please join the conversation by commenting below or submitting a question at our contact page!

TangleCast 31: Otaku Diet

  1. Humanity Has Declined has been on my “I’ll get around to it sooner or later” list for some time now, but I think I’ll have to bump it up a little higher after hearing the praise y’all showered on it.

    Alas, approaching the end of my master’s degree leaves me with little time that I care to spend on anime. I have, however, been regaling myself on the freshly-translated collector’s editions of the Fruits Basket manga now that they’re being released. I’ve always adored the characters but have virtually no knowledge of the story beyond where the anime ended, so it’s been pretty exciting getting to see how the narrative progresses.

    1. Having just finished Humanity has Declined, I would definitely recommend it… with the caveat that you will best enjoy it if you know some Japanese and are intentionally viewing it as a parody of multiple genres from episode-to-episode.

      1. Not just viewing it as a parody, but being familiar with the genres it is parodying is important for maximum enjoyment. For example, I suspect all the BL jokes would go over the heads of the average viewer.
