Nothing much to say here. Tomato is back and talking up a storm. I return to being the quiet one who laughs a lot (while I’m there at least. I leave partway during Part Four). TetrisDork butchers the names of a few characters, writers, and artists. Dragonpiece is confused about what is going 70% of the time. ToonFaithful listens to us and tries to put in his humourous two-cents. And Don East is Don East.  And we all get into a debate over the Teen Titans animated series, and other random stuff. All-in-all? Normal podcast episode. But if you must know…I didn’t edit this much. Schoolwork mixed with general laziness means that I ended up just cutting the initial conversations we had before we did the podcast proper. So you don’t get to hear me freak out over dying several times in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. or at Tetris playing a high-frequency buzzer for several seconds. I apologize for that. But you do get to hear all our flubs, so that’s a plus. I don’t know when the next WRSP podcast is going to be, but I do know that we need a better name for it than that.

This was originally supposed to be a full podcast that was a Part 2 to the first one. However, it turns out that none of us knows the meaning of the term “Lightning Round,” since the entire Buyer’s Guide had to be divided into four parts, each 40-60 minutes in length. It’s probably for the best though, since you guys get a better idea about how we feel about each title. Each segment covers one week: Part 1 covers Sept. 7 (aka today), Part 2 covers Sept. 14, etc. The last two parts will be posted on Sept. 21st, so be on the lookout for that.

During these first two parts, Tetris is talking through his iPod, so some of what he says near the beginning of the recording is covered up slightly by static. This clears itself up later on, though. Also of note is the fact that I speak for more than a minute…in fact, there are points where I just go crazy and don’t shut up, especially when we talk about Rob Liefeld. Toon is there throughout the first part, but chooses not to say a word until the second. TomatoSurprise and Shadows of Thot were supposed to be on these parts, but…things came up for both of them. The former recorded his thoughts on these first 26 comics though, and you can listen to them below.

As promised, we got together to share our feelings on the whole DC Universe reboot. In Part One, which was recorded on the 26th, we focus on the entire experiment as a whole, debating the good and bad aspects of it, as well as our initial feelings when we first learned about the reboot and how they have changed over the past few months. If you are more interested in hearing our thoughts on the individual comics, since they all happened to hit store shelves (both physically and digitally) today, then just wait until next Wednesday for Part Two of this “joint podcast thing.” The outro is the unused theme for a 60s Batgirl series.

On a general podcast note, we plan on merging Notaku Diaries and Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast into a single entity with the WRSP name come September…which means that the SDCC 2011 ‘cast back in July was technically the first episode of this new project and this is the second. Of course, all the episodes of Notaku and NAOCP that haven’t been posted will be posted eventually, hopefully before the fourth episode of WRSP.

P.S. – Since Tomato never gave me that link, I had to find those DC Comics sales charts myself.  And here are the charts from January to June 2011 (couldn’t find July or August). So yeah, you can see why they took such a gamble with this relaunch. And while it seems to be a success so far, we just have to wait and see how it does in the long-run…man, I say far more in the production notes than I do in…almost every podcast episode really. Also, here’s the ad that DC made to promote the comics…yeah, no comment there.

Moby Dick, Skinny-dipping, and Broadcast Order Ends

We’re done with the first season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya! We’ll have to take on Endless Eight for the next two episodes, but we just have to roll with the punches. Oh sweet Suzumiya, we have to roll with the punches. In other news, Chdr wasn’t with us for this episode since he was in Texas planning out his future dictatorship over the state. So we replaced him with Dragonpiece…that’s a fair exchange, right? Don East also joined for the ride, sharing his distaste for BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad. And as a first, we all agreed that Outlaw Star was actually okay this time around. In this episode, we knock the door into perfect free with Hit in the USA by Beat Crusaders, which  was used as the opening theme for the first half of Mongolian Chop Squad. Then we turn away and leave you guys on the lonely rail with God Knows by Aya Hirano, which was used in episode 12 of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Mood Swings, Everybody Dies, and Space Race

Due to some miscommunication that was probably all my fault, these two episodes didn’t air on Toon Radio last Tuesday as was planned. As for the reason why these episodes would even air back-to-back in the first place is because we weren’t able to record episode 11 on the weekend it was supposed to be recorded, so we recorded them both the following weekend. Though I did send Robert the files for these episodes, a rerun of Episode 10 and an episode of the awesome GeekNights podcast aired in their place. Now time to talk about the episodes themselves: Sketch was on both on these episode, since he really wanted to be on at least one episode where we talk about Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. And who are we to deny him that? He was the one who suggested that we watch the series in the first place. There was also a bit in one of these episodes where we watched this Beat Crusaders music video…something I forgot whether I kept or not. One thing that I do remember cutting is a bit in Episode 12 where I admit that Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt is the first Gainax production that I’ve ever watched. Feel free to ridicule me for that in the comments below.

Literal Star Wars, Gratuitous Engrish, Silent Reading Time, and Die Hard IN SPACE!

EPISODE 11: The opening theme used in this episode is Bōken Desho Desho? (sung by Aya Hirano), which happens to be the opening theme for the first season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. The closing theme is Hare Hare Yukai, also sung by Aya Hirano, and also from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
EPISODE 12: The opening theme is Libera Me From Hell, which is sung by Tarantula (from the band Spontania) & Kasahara Yuri, arranged by Iwasaki Taku, and used in the latter half of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. The ending theme is My World Down by the band Meister, and was used as the ending theme for the first half of BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad.– RacattackForce

Sibling Quibbles, Sexual Harassment, Moonlight Assassin, and Hot for Teacher

Wow, we’ve reached episode ten and…nothing really. Episode 10 isn’t really the biggest benchmark ever when it comes to internet programming. Episode 100: now THAT’S a benchmark. Anyway, while I’m drinking this disgusting can of V8, I suppose I should tell you some behind-the-scenes stuff. Well, guess what? I can’t remember a thing from that recording other than CallGraph failing one or two times, and that huge Nia debate that occurs halfway through. So yeah, nothing to really say other than don’t mess with Nia, or any of the other girls in Don East’s harem. The opening theme is Koi no Mikuru Densetsu by Satoru Kousaki (sung by Yuko Goto), which is used as the opening theme for The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina: Episode 00. The closing theme is Minna no Peace by Afromanic, which is used as the ending theme for post-time skip Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

P.S. – We’re doing Haruhi Suzumiya in BROADCAST ORDER. Yeah, we are total badasses.

I’m still worried about putting together Episode 9 at the time of writing. Heck, the only thing on my mind at the moment is how screwed up the recording and the aftermath of that episode was. But I’ll talk about that in full once we actually get to it. For now, let’s focus on Episode 8, in which ToonFaithful was mysteriously captured by ninjas prior to recording, leaving TetrisDork, chdr, and myself to do the podcast…then chdr had to leave to eat dinner. So more than half of the podcast is Tetris and I doing some back and forth. And I don’t think any of were 100% on the day that we recorded: I, at the very least, was recovering from a pretty bad cold that Sunday. But in the end, we managed to have some decent discussion and be funny enough to keep your attention.

The opening theme is Sorairo Days (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann OP) by Shoko Nakagawa, while the ending theme is Watashi No Ai Wa Chiisaikeredo (Princess Tutu ED) by Ritsuko Okazaki. Stay tuned for Episode Nine, the most chaotic and disastrous recording so far (and that says A LOT).
