Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to another Monday and another episode of The Downpour Podcast!

All was quiet in the lives of Jonathan, Jared and Randy. But then…everything changed. Everything they’d been waiting for happened; news came in droves, games got released, so much was played, so much anime was watched…there’s just so much to talk about. On top of all that, we’re continuing our new segment featuring special guests, this time with Chris Garcia from 8bitfix. This show was so unbelievably jam-packed that we had to split it into two parts. Click here for all the gaming goodness from Part 1.

The second part of this week’s show is devoted entirely to the Winter Anime season. Here’s everything we talked about, whether for a few minutes or a little longer: Nagi no Asukara, Golden Time, Kill la Kill, Tonari no Seki-kun: The Master of Killing Time, The Pilot’s Love Song, Recently, My Sister is Unusual, Engaged to the Unidentified, Witch Craft Works, Pupa, Wake Up, Girls!, Nobunagun, Sakura Trick, Noragami, Inari KonKon, Koi Iroha, and finally Space Dandy. Plenty of impressions, and a handful of recommendations! Are there any among this list that you, our listeners, would recommend? Be sure to let us know in the comments below, or shoot us an email. We’re always eager to hear what you have to say!

Enjoy the show this week! As usual, we always appreciate your feedback. You can send an email to downpourpodcast@oprainfall.com if there’s something on your mind. And please do look forward to Episode 44 coming your way on Monday, February 24th, 2014!

    Hey, I like that this week split the gaming and anime section into two seperate podcasts. I have to be honest, I always just skip over the anime half since I’m just not interested in anime.

    Will you guys be splitting this up in the future? Or maybe even spin off the anime portion into its own podcast on a separate feed?

      This is certainly something we’ve talked about and contemplated in the past. As of right now there aren’t any certain plans, but we’re always thinking about it.

      We (Me, Jonathan, and Jared) all dig JRPGs and since they share much of the style, aesthetic, and charm that anime does we want to be sure it’s included. Birds of a feather and all that.

      We also realize that games and anime are their own entertainment mediums and just because you like one doesn’t necessarily mean you like the other.

      If people want it split up and have two parts to each episode or would rather have two separate, concurrent podcasts (one gaming, one anime) then that’s certainly something we can accommodate as well. We’re open to feedback.

      Thanks!
