Anime: Ep 25 - Slayers (with Jay from Smack It Down)

For episode 25 not only do we have a guest in Jay from the Smack It Down podcast, but we also start off with some pretty good story time (0-19). Tori has another quest update. This time over a strange 2005 anime called Basilisk (19-32). We had a question for discussion from a listener about the best romance anime stemming from Maison Ikkoku (32-56). From there, we go into the great debate over Pokemon vs Digimon. We compare likes and dislikes over Pokemon the First Movie from 98 and the Hosoda directed Digimon the Movie: War Games from 2000 (58-1:42). As Jay is the guest, he chose the retro anime up for review to be the cult classic from 1995 called Slayers. Does it stand up today though? (1:42-end).

Retrocast: Ep 21 - Vehicular Combat

After the usual 'what have you been playing (0-14) the usual guys of the retrogaming game get hyped for the upcoming E3 2018 with a segment called "justify your console." We made a list of 10 must have games for each of the three major consoles out today (14-55). Afterwards, we discuss some of Nintendo Switch Online and the new Neo Geo mini console coming out (55-1:20). Finally, the theme of the episode brings us to discuss a number of games based on car/vehicular combat. If the car has weapons or is primarily used as a weapon we picked games based on this and found out if some were good or some were bad (1:21-end).

Wrestling: Ep 04 - No Regrets Backlash

May has seen some good events come and go as well as what could possibly be the worst WWE ppv in quite some time (0-6). We continue with our starting segment which covers a retro-old school wrestler. We talk a bit about the wrestler and a couple matches. This one is another recently passed away wrestler in Nick 'Big Bully' Busick (6-19). From there we review the rising indie scene first with Defiant No Regrets ppv and then into the super indie promotion German Wrestling Federation. The GWF had an all women's ppv in Women's Revolution as well as Mystery Mayhem (20-52). wXw had their own big event in Superstars of Wrestling ppv and man it was something including a possible match of the year candidate (52-1:46). NJPW put on a good showing with some marquee matches and surprises from Hi no Kuni to Dontaku Day 1-2. RoH was a little more quiet this time around (1:46-2:26). We wrap up the cast as covering WWE. Join us as we share our thoughts on the latest from 205 live, NXT, and then sulk in sadness over the ppv Backlash 2018 (2:26-3:19). The cast rounds out with the podcast top wrestler table from each Tier and updates the top of table in full (3:19-end).

Anime: Ep 24 - SaiKano (She, the Ultimate Weapon)

Spring means romance is in the air. I guess a short intro is in order (0-4). As per request, we read some negative mail (4-13). We tackle some topical questions and a few more directed questions at the hosts. Been some time (13-55). We have reached the half way point in the Spring anime season, so that means it is time for a mid-season round up. We go over the status of 6 anime from the current season (55-1:28). Finally, the reason why we are all here. Time to review the tragic romance anime from 2002 by the name of SaiKano aka She, the Ultimate Weapon. Boy, this one sure was something (1:28-end).

Wrestling: Ep 03 - Greatest Royal Redemption

April was nuts as the band is back with Travis aka HibikiTMD to discuss the wide world of wrestling from Mania weekend to the Greatest Royal Rumble. We begin with a new segment which covers a retro-old school wrestler. We talk a bit about the wrestler and a couple matches. First up is recently passed away legend in Bruno Sammartino (0-23). From there we cover the rising indie scene in order of Evolve 102-103, Progress Ch 66-67, wXw True Colors, and Impact Redemption (23-1:12). RoH and NJPW has had a quite few weeks but RoH Masters of Craft and Road to Dontaku did have some highlights worth discussing (1:12-1:35). We wrap up the cast as usual covering WWE. The guys here at RLR disucss some NXT possibilities such as what to do with Gargano and Ciampa, and the positive notes over 205 live recently. Raw and SD had a bunch of debuts, returns, and the Superstar Shakeup. However, is this really a good thing? Finally, we finish with some opinions over the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia (1:35-end).
