The last of our new set of teams brings your their first recording of our rebooted TangleCast! David, Peter, and Marcelo of Team FtK (For the King) take a look at the most popular anime of the last several years, My Hero Academia, and discuss why it works so well. What makes it like the great shounen of the podcasters’ youth, like Naruto, One Piece, and Dragon Ball Z, and what sets it apart? Plus, the group talks about the problems of power scaling, Peter mentions how the Hulk can destroy planets, the guys talk about how selfish Goku really is, and Marcelo hates on the Bount arc in Bleach.
Warning: Lots of spoilers ahead, but only up through season two of My Hero Academia. There are also very minor spoilers for the series mentioned above, as well as Juni Taisen, Gurren Lagann, and Hitman Reborn!
And we want your feedback as well! Each week we’ll ask a question on the podcast and feature your answers the next time that team rolls around.
Here’s this week’s CQ (Cast Question), or rather, request: David mentioned that he hates slice of life series, but Peter and Marcelo wonder if it’s just because he hasn’t found the right ones. What slice of life series would you recommend he watch?
Check us out on iTunes or through our RSS Feed! For those interested in Juni Taisen, the recommendation from Holly that David wasn’t so hot on, check out recent articles on the series by Samuru and Team Anchester’s Matthew. We’ve also jumped into My Hero Academia on multiple other occasions here on the blog. The featured art on this post was illustrated by CalendarV (reprinted w/permission).
