Happy Thanksgiving! We are here to infuse your holiday with the blood of a thousand Neon Genesis Evangelion Angels, prove that “shonen” aren’t the ones reading Shonen Jump lately, and list all the benefits of marrying an otaku. And yes, this is a nerdy photo of Michelle on her wedding day with a Sailor Moon Rod.
Welcome, new and old weeaboos, to our very special Neon Genesis Evangelion episode of Senpai Buddies. Now that this shizz is on Netflix, we know y’all have got some QUESTIONS. We discuss why we love and hate it, how important it is the anime genre, and just like, make a lot of silly robot jokes. PS: THERE’S ANOTHER MOVIE COMING so get ready!
The Senpai Buddies are reunited, telling tales about this week’s Anime Expo, a train that turns into an Evangelion piloted by kid-friendly Shinji, a voice actor who fights crime IRL, and child reenactors who come to your wedding to tell your life story. Happy Independence Day!
Introducing Michelle, Max, & Yume: 3 friends who probably will stop being friends after making this podcast. It’s a comedy, so don’t worry. Oh yeah, and there’s some pop culture news about Japan hidden in here somewhere.
