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

April 11, 2018  

Guided by the chakra the Media Maidenz tackle episodes 23-24 of Betterman. We're in the home stretch, ready to put it away, but now the world is in the grip of Algernon, and everything is going downright topsy-turvy. Difficult questions continue to arise and difficult answers are nowhere to be found yet, surprisingly. Listen as we ponder: Are any of us human? Are any of us secretly Kankel? Should a pregnant woman do robot battle? Do tuna heads represent the slaughter? Join us and find out!

Outro theme is "Blossom" the theme of the Dual Tribe in Betterman.

I just want to stress this: Gunther Steiner lost his entire team. He didn’t lose 20% of his team. He didn’t even lose 50% of his team. He lost his whole team. Look at what it’s done to him. You can see the death in his eyes, but he keeps on going. This is why Haas is one of my favorite teams.

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.

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.
