Poll Results- YouTube Videos

A few weeks back, we posted a poll. You see, initially, a lot of the traffic we got here was through our YouTube page. The way we'd try to attract viewers was via silly little 30 second commercials. However, for whatever reason (I suspect my friend Hika's viewers aren't interested in our videos anymore, and she's nice enough to give them a "Like" every time), traffic from them is way down. With such a small number of views, we decided to ask if people still enjoyed them and if they were worth the time and effort. The results: out of 16 votes, we got the following responses.

8: Yes. They're amusing.

5: No. Quit while you're ahead.

3: I have no strong feelings one way or the other.

Since the yays outweigh the nays, we'll keep making them. Thanks to everyone who voted.

AMV of the Week #8

Burk's choice this week.  He finally bullied me into posting something Ultraseven related.

Asura Cryin' Review

In the rousing conclusion to Mecha Month, Bobcat and Burkion get out of the 80s and look at a more recent show, Asura Cryin'. There's ghosts, demons, Vatican demon hunters, cyborgs, scientists and... aha, there's the mecha. I knew it was hiding in there somewhere.

Getter Robo Review

In this episode, Bobcat and Burkion get FIRED UP! From anime legend Go Nogai, we get the adventures of three extremely stereotypical teenagers having incredibly formulaic adventures. And yet, formulas are formulas for a reason.  

 





As promised in the review, here are a few links.  WARNING: None of the Mad Bull links are safe for work.

Finally, here's a clip showing the theme song and opening, which is what brought the anime to my (Bobcat's) attention.

Bobcat's turn again.  This time, I bring you a public service announcement.

New Request Page

I've decided that rather than bogging down the podcast proper every once in a while with updates about requests, I've gone ahead and added a request page,  http://fivepointpodcast.blogspot.com/p/requests.html  If you have a request to... request, check here to make sure someone else hasn't requested it first.

AMV of the Week #6

Burk's choice this week.  ... I don't know what I did, but he made sure it was a song I hated.  He's a vengeful little cuss, he is.

Poll Results

So for the last few weeks, we've had a poll going about whether or not we'd continue the features where we post interesting and random videos we find online.  There was concern that we were being off topic with them, so we put it to you, the viewers. 

Results after the break.

Mobile Suit Gundam Review

Mecha Month continues full steam ahead! We're hot blooded and raring for action! We believe in ourselves, who believe in ourselves! This meme doesn't work for more than one person!

 


 Four score and eight years after humanity has gone to the stars! A ragtag crew of Earthlings must fight off a group of colonists gone rogue. Their only hope is a young boy named Amero and his giant robot, the prototype Gundam. How did we treat this venerable series that launched quite possibly the greatest anime franchise ever? As well as we treat anything.

...

We are so so very sorry.

Conglomerated Commercial Video - Now in 3D!

Here's our YouTube commercials for episodes 11-15, for the enjoyment of everyone who didn't come here through YouTube... which is the majority of viewers these days.







Disclaimer: may not actually be in 3D.

Additional disclaimer: may not be especially funny. 


AMV of the Week #5

Bobcat's turn once again.  This is another blast from my AMV loving past.

Beast King Go Lion Review

To bring Mecha Month into full swing (after our April Fools debacle... ugh.), we start off with Beast King Go Lion or, as it's called in America, Voltron: Defender of the Universe.  We selected this show because we wanted to see what they'd changed.

... how can two shows be so similar, yet so completely different?

You'll just have to watch to find out.









If you're interested in either Voltron or Go Lion, please consider buying the DVDs from Amazon.com using the links below.

Introduction Video (Revised)

I decided to revise the site's introduction video.  We had one of these before, on the "about us" page, but that was recorded back in December and was utterly outdated. 

You can watch the video after the break.


Poll Results

A few weeks ago, I decided to throw up a poll.  I decided to see what sorts of shows people wanted us to review.  You can see the results after the break.
