Welcome to episode 50!! Can’t believe we’ve done 50 of these fucking things. For the uninitiated every 10 episode we’ll do a “retro” episode so we saw fit to to do 3 episodes for episode 50. Part 1 is the anime fan favorite Neon Genesis Evangelion, that one is with our boi(z) Santos. The original co-host. We talk about the show’s legacy, it’s themes, and how it holds up. Seriously though, thank you to anyone that who has ever listened to it the pod. This podcast is really just me talking to my friends about the shit that I love. So if you’ve listened, I appreciate you. Last thing, if this is your first time listening to the show, please rate us on Itunes and spread the word. Follow us on all socials!
This week the Pilot Boiz go into the dystopian future of the new anime Megalo Box. We talk about our preferences for anime, the debate of dub vs. sub, and the different genres of anime. So fasten your seat belts because this episode might upset a few weebs.
