Popcorn Pulse 213: Dekotora
1:51:59Two guys and ten movies. No, it’s not us talking yet more James Bond. Though that will be coming. We’ve got something a little special for everyone. By that we mean we’re doing a movie that wasn’t in either of our wheelhouse and probably hasn’t been covered by a whole host of people before. We have Truck Rascals(1975). The first of what would become a series of ten films, this heralds Japan’s cultural obsession with trucking as well. Oh and those ten films were made within five years.

Manga Pulse 505: Night Bully
2:05:02Line up folks. It’s episode five hundred and five. Which is always a bit awkward to type out. We were once told that the and in number was for describing decimal points. Yet it feels natural to write it out like that. Then when we go and check style guides and they say that it’s better to use numerals for larger numbers because writing it out wastes space. Screw you, style guides, we have near infinite space thanks to the digital revolution. Tim has The Bully In-Charge. A manwha where there’s a school full of bullies.
