    Wicked Anime brings you awesome animated commentary every other week!

    Business is scary. The last thing we ever want is a money grubbing corporation putting their greedy hands on a medium built up and loved by a fandom and a community. Well, that’s exactly what we are currently facing as we look to the future of Funimation being bought out by Sony. While we have no clue as to what the future may hold for this, we know it’s either going to be really good or really bad. Let’s discuss!

  6. State of the Empire :: Episode 36 :: Rogue One Six Months Later: The Great Anthology Experiment

    State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

    One of the most exciting things to come from Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm was the chance to tell new Star Wars stories on the big screen –  stories beyond the ever-continuing the episodic saga. Films exploring The Old Republic, Boba Fett finally having a chance to really earn that fan following, tales of smugglers, scoundrels, and smarmy aliens – anything is possible. The debut spin-off film, Rogue One, was a ballsy first foray into a bigger cinematic universe; and with that risk came a Hutt-load of trouble.

    Rogue One released to great acclaim and profit, but what hasn’t yet come out is the real story of what went on behind the scenes. In the months following the film’s release, the rumors about drastic, character-reshaping reshoots have become more and more substantiated and fragmented clues about the movie’s original narrative have been scattered like the dust of Alderaan across numerous filmmaker interviews. Was Rogue One a bad film saved at the last minute? A better movie made safer by focus groups? This film’s production is a fascinating untold story, and in this episode we’re assembling all the nuggets of insight we’ve collected.

    Who was Sergent Jyn Erso? Was Krennic ever a competent villain? Who lived and who died between reshoot and release? Will we see more ? and ?? And perhaps biggest of all, what do the struggles of Rogue One and the meltdown of the Han Solo film mean for the future of these experiments in Star Wars filmmaking? (more…)

  7. Wicked Anime Podcast :: Episode 117 :: Ballroom Blitz (Summer 2017)

    Wicked Anime brings you awesome animated commentary every other week!

    The summer 2017 season of anime is upon us and . . . we’re less than enthused. While this chart may be the least exciting we’ve come across in quite a few seasons, we are still determined to watch it all to find that diamond in the rough!

    Join Jonathan and Andrew as they talk about what’s happening in anime and the miniscule picks from the summer 2017 anime season! PLUS – Ballroom Kung-Fu, birds and the bees, and audio malfunctions!

    P.S. We do apologize for the end of the episode, due to an unknown malfunction, the last 10 minutes of the recording was lost.

  8. State of the Empire :: Episode 35 :: Jedi Mind Tricks

    State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

    In the era of fake news, no quadrant of the galaxy is safe from mind tricks. Yes, State of the Empire is your wacky, zany source for absurd rumors, but if we smell bantha poodoo, you’d better believe we’re gonna call it out so you don’t step in it. So forget all you know… or think you know about the Han Solo film and Lord and Miller’s firing. Let Cap, Doug and Matt set you straight.

    In addition to tackling the new murmurs coming from the smouldering crater of the Han Solo implosion, we’ve got a new cache of Episode VIII action figure code names with some baffling implications, awe-inspiring and disconcerting plans from Disney’s upcoming Star Wars attractions, musings on the forthcoming Indiana Jones film, upcoming comics, and a shocking amount of character and story details for the untitled Star Wars adventure project from Visceral Games.

  9. Wicked Anime Podcast :: Episode 116 :: Wanna Watch Me Sleep?

    Wicked Anime brings you awesome animated commentary every other week!

The second, we’re talking about the anime that we keep watching despite it’s taboos and possibly because it’s straight up terrible. And yes, we mean different shows than the ones we talk about on a weekly basis.

  10. State of the Empire :: Episode 34 :: Han Fired First: Lord & Miller Jettisoned from Han Solo

    State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

    There’s been a great disturbance in the force. As if two bright voices in pop cinema set about making a Han Solo movie and were suddenly silenced.

    This week we received the shocking news that Phil Lord and Chris Miller had been fired from the young Han Solo film with only three weeks left to shoot. Changing creative directions early into a film is one thing, but a firing this late in production is catastrophic and highly unusual. We discuss this baffling development at length – why it might have happened, what it means for the modern era of Star Wars film making, who to believe, and what Ron Howard being brought in means for the Han Solo film (and Willow!).

    We also explore the latest on The Last Jedi including character reveals, rumor confirmations, leaked info from LEGOs, and behind the spolier-proof blast doors we even provide an outline of a sequence from the film. (more…)
