A Post Unrelated to Anime: Patchwork Ties

Friend of the show C. L. Collins has recently published a fantasy e-book called Patchwork Ties.  You should check it out.  He's a cool dude and he writes good stories.  Here's the summary from the website:

When Celine Young encountered the bizarre man looking for a wooden sword, she expected an adventure. She didn't expect what it entailed, or that he would talk so much...

Opinionated Young Justice Review Pilot

This is a video that I (Bobcat) made about a month ago. It was the prototype for a review series about the Young Justice cartoon that I haven't had the time to work on. My biggest issue is a general lack of experience with video editing, and fear of copyright violations that would be involved in using the footage from the show, resulting in issues with using still frames from the show.

With that glowing recommendation, enjoy!

Star Driver Review

Star Driver, a trippy, bizarre magical boy robot anime starring a protagonist in a red t-shirt with a white star. Check out the review at!

(whisper whisper)! It's dot com!

Also, apologies for the slightly wonky audio on my (Bobcat's) end.  I figured out what I was doing wrong only after the recording was all done.

Policy and Scheduling Change Announcements

Hitler finds out the Five Point Podcast is... by fivepointpodcast

The videos should explain sufficiently what we're doing. To sum it up,

1) We're switching from doing the podcast weekly to every other week (biweekly). With work and real life, we don't have time to devote every single weekend to the podcast anymore.

2) We're closing requests. We have too many at this point, and it's only fair to the people who have already made requests that we don't drown them out under new requests. If we get through the list, we'll reopen them at some point.

That's all. If there are any questions or comments, leave them below.

The Legend of Korra Season 1 Review

A month in the making. Five combined hours recording between the two attempts at recording.  More than eight hours of editing.  Four hours of uploads.  One review. 
It is... an epic length review of the Legend of Korra, the followup to the popular Avatar: The Last Airbender. How does it work out? ... we aren't fans.

If you'll excuse me, I'm just going to go over there and faint.

Also, play the drinking game at home: every time we say, "In a better written show," take a shot.
