Case Closed Reviews: Fall 2013 / Spring 2014

Follow us directly , on Stitcher, or on iTunes

First impressions are great but what about our thoughts after we’ve watched an entire series week to week? We figured our listeners might want to hear our final impressions as well so we’ve created the Case Closed Review podcast. Just like the S.W.A.T. Reviews, these will be mini-podcasts and completely off the cuff.

Here are the 3 shows we finished from the fall and spring seasons:

Listen – Final impressions of Yowamushi Pedal from TMS Entertainment. It is streaming on Crunchyroll.

Listen – Final impressions of Ping Pong the Animation from Tatsunoko Productions. It is streaming on Funimation and Hulu.

Listen – Final impressions of One Week Friends from Brain’s Base. It is streaming on Crunchyroll.



S.W.A.T. Reviews: Autumn 2013 Pt. 1

The premise of these reviews is simple: watch the first episode of a series and then immediately sit down to record a review mini-podcast. The reviews are five- to ten-minutes long and entirely off the cuff. As always we only review new shows (so no sequels or continuations) and try to avoid anything that just looks outright awful. Here are the first 10 from the new season:
