Queen Emeraldas

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the Leiji Matsumoto Queen Emeraldas manga. It's mostly about strangers giving guns to children. In the news, there's an Astroboy digital CCG that you should avoid, Steven Universe fans that you should avoid, and we learn why Mario was there at the Olympics instead of Pokemon. Also honey and meat, and the Prince Valiant storytelling game (which you should NOT avoid)!

This is our last show before PAX, and we hope to see you there! Support GeekNights on Patreon to get things like Rym and Emily reviewing Kubo and the Two Strings!

Bojack Horseman

Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Emily review Bojack Horseman. The critics are right, and this show is fantastic, if dark. It's definitely worth watching. The first season takes some episodes to hit its stride, season two is a perfect arc, and season three is a series of largely high-concept episodes.

Flying Witch

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Flying Witch (ふらいんぐうぃっち). It's light, pretty, generally enjoyable, and otherwise inoffensive. In the news, Billy Bat nears its conclusion, the Queen Emeraldas manga is coming out in (hardcover) English, the GUNDAM movies are online for free (for now), a Mouse Guard movie is in the works, and an SDCC staffer hijacks the "Women in Feminism" panel at SDCC.

Rym and Scott don't know much about Arthurian Legend, but this movie might be good. Scott also seem to like blue guys.

The Lost Village

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the largely mediocre anime: The Lost Village (迷家-マヨイガ-). It would be great if it were actually a parody of shows like this, but it is unfortunately earnest. Jeff Lemire's Black Hammer comes. The New York Comic Con's professional badges are as scarce as the fan badges (and that's a good thing). Change your passwords.

We'll be performing at ConnectiCon 2016! The GeekNights Patreon marches ever onward!

Some Anime We're Watching

Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Scott have watched a bunch of different anime, but not much of the same anime. So we talk about some Space Patrol Luluco, Lupin, Joker Game, Erased (which Emily and Rym both reviewed and did some final thoughts for on the Patreon), Kiznaiver, Sakamoto, and more. In the news, Captain America joins Hydra, and the NYCC is trying something with its badge sellout problem. I guess, and

Ace Attorney

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the awful, minimum-effort exercise in mediocrity that is the Phoenix Wright anime: Ace Attorney. It's not even worth watching one episode: it's just a 100% redo of the first game, with shoddy animation and annoying voice acting. In other news, anime clubs are (surprisingly) on the rise, and it's time to renew that Crunchyroll subscription.

The GeekNights Patreon will have a lot of bonus content in the next couple weeks, and we'll be performing Atari Game Design live at PAX East 2016!

Gravity Falls - Final Thoughts

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Gravity Falls in full. It's a pretty solid cartoon. In the news, we will be doing five shows at Anime Boston this weekend. Escaflowne is getting a dub via pre-orders on Kickstarter. Sakamoto desu ga looks up our alley. Also we talk a bunch about bike rooms, bike laws, and bike thieves.
