Transmediacrity A podcast about media through an analytical, admiring and alternative perspective.

February 22, 2018  

The Hinoki Respecters have Logged In.

Betterman episodes 15 and 16 are kind of a dark time folks. At least there's a respite to be found in Miyako, amino acids, and animes MUCH WORSE than this one to put things into perspective. The Media Maidenz follow Miyako's plain language explanation of much of the series' events thus far, muse on how to get Neil Degrasse Tyson and Richard Dawkins to watch and comment on Betterman, adore Yannagi and Kaede's happy cohabitating relationship, and worship the ground Miyako walks on and her every pronounciation of difficult words (explained plainly). Akamatsu is there for like, two scenes. Sakura's life continues to be upsetting, and Lamia saves us from Keita and Hinoki's date with some real Chuuni shit.

We act like there's one segment on this show called The Petty Corner. This is a farce; Madiha is petty the entire 96 minutes.

Topics include: Video games are dead on PC; we don't wanna remember when Transmediacrity started; GACHA GAOL the Kara No Kyoukai Garden of Sinners event in Fate/Grand Order is pretty okay; we demand Fate Extra on PC; make the Fate fighting game "a jumper one of those" "like Smash"; how the Fate MMORPG would've worked; Esther is still upset about Monster Hunter; in the Petty Corner, Esther despises you if you're enjoying Monster Hunter World, and Madiha loses her entire fucking goddamn mind for a bit (she is sorry); nostalgia for old Monster Hunter; Madiha was good at underwater combat and wants it back; Madiha and Esther's first consoles and console game history, as well as their first animes and anime histories; Esther the playstation kid; VECTORMAN; Madiha is still lost in Breath of the Wild in her girlfriend's Wii U that she has now; the desire to have game journalists ambushed by gacha games on the Nintendo Switch; the shmup gacha that Madiha invented in her mind palace; the dead sea dockets; what the fuck was happening with Tenchi Muyo's airing on Cartoon Network; NEXT ANIME CLUB IS GONNA BE SELECTOR INFECTED WIXOSS EVERYBODY, YOU HEARD IT HERE; one episode of Yugioh is enough Yugioh; Esther WILL PLAY BUTTERFLY SOUP 2 (guess who wont); Madiha wants every visual novel to tell massive war stories in perhaps the least reasonable thing she has ever said on this show!; life's not fair; which of the buttons on a VHS would make the strongest power; DO YOU REALIZE WITH MODERN TECHNOLOGY WHAT AN INTRICATE CHAO GARDEN THEY COULD MAKE; everybody HATES Sonic The Hedgehog; what we're doing to kids these days; what are the good tank games (these don't exist); the life of pablo; we're happy that despite everything the listeners watch the show; THE FINAL YAHOO.

Happy anniversary, Transmediacrity. You know what we're not celebrating? Casuls. You're everywhere, and you ruined everything.

The Media Maidenz return to the swamp with episodes 12-14 of Betterman. We got all the stuff you crave; bugs, pheromones, nectars. Mouth play.

Halfway through the series, it's time to ask the tough questions. Did Yonetani demand the kink, and did he receive it? Are plants able to read human minds like polygraph machines (??)? Are mythical greek names overplayed? Should BPL foment communist revolution as a means to feed an expanding population? Is Betterman getting better(man) at scene spatiality? Is Betterman actually after all this time, a Kaiju show? Are the Neuronoids actually cool? Is the Miyako mouth stuff scene the worst scene in the anime -- and the worst sentence ever said in these podcast descriptions?

In this house we respect Shigeru Akamatsu. Go off, King. Slay.

The internet's no. 1 prestige podcast about Sunrise's "Betterman" returns with episodes 10 and 11. Both Media Maidenz have contracted Algernon and are struggling to do the podcast, but they still find time to comment on a possible Betterman reboot where Keita becomes a "winged boobs man"; the profitability of Akamatsu Industries; Keita and Hinoki's relationship to Neuronoid data collection; the first actually horrifying thing in Betterman; the secrets and enigmas of the clip show episode; MOUTH STUFF; and finally a trip to Miyako Land.

The Media Maidenz are fully back on their bullshit in this episode of Transmediacrity. Esther improves her APM in Starcraft II; the girls are beset by elite gamers for tackling that most controversial topic, the future of competitive RTS; Madiha struggles to be the 4th best last woman standing in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds; we talk about Persona again, both the big kind and the little kind; the Anime of the Year goes to Princess Principal, the only good steampunk; Madiha talks Legend of the Galactic Heroes and that most fanciful question, "what if war was bad?"; Esther loves the military food depicted in the Solstice War. None of you sent us any questions. Shameful display.

The Media Maidenz continue their ongoing investigation into the Algernon incident with more Betterman. In this episode they uncover mysteries, wrapped in secrets and garnished with enigmas. They unearth an alternate universe, yaoi-charged version of Betterman, a 2018 reboot, and the lesbian slice of life hidden within Betterman. Miyako probably doesn't know how bees work; Yannagi is straight up making shit up about DNA; Betterman is DEAD and a FISH; and everyone is making shit up about Algernon. And it is ONLY gonna get wilder y'all. Hold on tight.

There are so many tangents in this one I don't even know how to begin to describe the topics. Here's an attempt: the shocking conclusion to the "Madiha fled to Russia" kayfabe; DDLC is not DDLG; our hell future is gonna be terrible; Tooth & Tail, a herzog zwei about furries who eat each other; who won Starcraft II, which is free now; Esther abducts Madiha to the GACHA BLACK SITE secret prison to discuss Lootboxes, and to then talk very earnestly about wanting to roll more on gachas; Esther needs to escape Granblue Fantasy; Gudaguda Honnoji and will anyone be able to roll a Scathach; the Fate universe is the most fucked up transmedia empire ever; Gen Urobuchi quotes mean it's time for the return of MADiha; MADiha is uncomfortably irate and violent for 5 minutes (she is very sorry); Lootboxes BANNED in the Netherlands (?); Nier Automata doesn't deserve to be goaty (don't @ us).

UPDATE 11/22/2017: MADIHA ROLLED A SCATHATCH. HER CROPS ARE IRRIGATED, HER CATTLE STRONG.
