    Surprised people actually like this podcast. You should only listen if you like some dude with an annoying laugh hate on your favorite anime! Go check out Anipro or animesenpai for much better podcasts
    Suggestion and Rating
    Found this podcast this year and started listening from episode one just got to episode 45 and really enjoy it. I am not sure if I can suggest an anime on a review but I kinda want to do one. There is one show that I believe Shaun would love but Remington would despise and that is Yu Yu Hakusho is an older anime but for me it has survived the test of time and it has by far one of the best tournament arcs there are. Thanks for making me laugh.
  • Rem in a maid dress
    I love this
    It is super funny and makes my laugh fr
  • Jcjfjdjfjfndkcjdns
    FIGHT ME!!!!!
    Started at episode one and am on 14 but am really enjoying the show.
  • PoleBro764
    The podcast was mildly amusing to listen to for a while, but I can’t continue listening after hearing Remingtons unfair criticism of my favorite anime, Attack on Titan. Remington considers himself as some sort of anime connoisseur, but in actuality he just has trash taste. He only gives positive reviews the most childish and shallow anime possible. And in reality, if he and Shaun tried to make their own anime, it would be 10 times worse than AoT, so perhaps be a little more charitable in your reviews of other people’s work.
  • M0RSM0RDRElove
    Listen to Remington
    I f’ing love this show. I like anime, as does my boyfriend, but ferreal Remington has POINTS. This show is overall just fun to listen to, major love to these guys. Keep it going, 5 years on!!
  • Lyndll
    I tried
    Listened to a few episode all the other guy does is bash on the anime
  • Swiftfiend818
    I like this
    These guys are very entertaining, despite rem totally trashing on Gurren Lagann for seemingly no reason.
  • a_band
    Sword art online
    When’s the next sword art online episode?
  • Lord of Pug
    Pick Hosts Wisely
    Loved the concept. But Remington hates just about everything he watches, often covering up poorly conceived opinions with a boisterous laugh. Shaun comes across as a prisoner on this show — he has developed his own nervous, forced laughter that feels like a coping mechanism for being paired with a stick-in-the-mud co-host. Two stars for Shaun’s love and knowledge of anime.
  • Hofner1962
    But lots of people love this anime
    I really like this podcast. That said it almost always could be summed up as Remington “ Here are 4 or 5 concrete reasons why this show is not good”. ( usually something like jargon is not a substitute for world building, no character development, poor pacing/story telling, no plot, reliance on unfortunate tropes) Shaun “ this is a beloved anime by many people “ Remington “ popularity does not mean good” Shaun “ this is rated really high on MAL” Remington “ again - popularity doesn’t mean it is good. Twilight was ranked high on many lists” Shaun “you are breaking my heart” Rem “ so you don’t have anything concrete to refute my criticisms?” Shaun “ our listeners won’t be happy”
  • Shoko-san
    you’re right about angel beats
    it’s not a good show, i agree
  • Honorable Llama
    Hated it at first, But somehow found myself loving it 😅
    It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I find it hilarious. It’s fun and not meant to be taken to heart. It’s like sitting in the lunchroom at school just chatting with some other weeb friends haha good times 🥹
  • bravo830
    Competent, but not the best anime podcast out there
    I love the concept: a seasoned anime fan and anime newbie review shows. But the episodes are hard to listen to. My issues with it are: 1. In the 4 episodes I listened to, it is harshly and almost exclusively negative about every show. Even in the most positive one (Spy x Family for God’s sake) most of the episode’s analysis was Rem saying “I don’t get what the big deal is.” I like scathing critique when called for, but when the balance is this off it gets tiresome quickly. Shaun, seems like a fun person to talk anime with, but we don’t get much of that. He too seldom pushes back or chimes in with much beyond “oh god, oh no, oh Rem!” While his cohost howls. Which leads me to… 2. It’s grating to listen to because one of the hosts is screeching with laughter seemingly directly into the microphone throughout the whole show. The hosts have their charms and funny moments, but this happens at every moment of even the lightest comedy. If you want some light banter about an impressive range of shows then you might consider giving it a shot. But if you’re looking for in-depth analysis or appreciation as you watch along, you should definitely look elsewhere.
  • William Wallace III
    Wish I could say otherwise
    I found Remington incredibly annoying, the premise was better than the execution, and frankly I’m just disappointed I did not find another anime podcast to binge. I don’t think I’ve ever been unable to finish a podcast episode before today. I genuinely didn’t enjoy any of it after part 1 where the anime is introduced and briefly described. Good luck with your show but (to my surprise) it’s not for me.
  • Skybrad111106
    Keep it up
    Love you guys!!! You’ve even got my non weeb girlfriend into anime! Y’all are awesome, thank you so much for doing what you do!
  • aefw
    Great Chemistry
    Fun chemistry between the hosts. Please review Ghost Hunt!
  • braprap
    5/10 = exceptional
    A man who doesn’t like anime very much reviews only anime forever. What could go wrong?
  • LeonidasGT
    Anime out of context
    This is my favorite podcast to listen to when I work. It makes the time fly with a smile on my face, keep it up Shaun and Remington, I look forward to your 1000th episode.
  • IronPhoenix12
    This is a good show
    I love this show and wish they could review Kuma kuma kuma bear it is a great show.
  • Darkmeerthedark
    Fun show
    So, I enjoy the show a great deal. I like that I can enjoy the shows even when they cover shows I am not interested in. Remington is definitely not your normal anime fan, and his reviews reflect it. And he criticizes things that are, in some cases, cultural differences, but totally valid concerns! I am very happy with the show!
  • Vinci00007
    Far too critical
    I understand the concept and its great but whats the point when the guy says nothing good about anything but focuses on the bad? It can be something objectively good and one bad thing makes a whole episode bad and in turn now a whole season was bad , it’s weird. Would appreciate pros and cons . Ranking attack on titan a 2 in anything should be fed time . Im glad hes keeping one piece protected because that’s crazy . Some funny stuff here and there but all in all not really the best podcast if you want a genuine anime discussion.
  • me myself and I 15
    Episode idea
    I think Remmy would “love” girls panzer
  • ExileGaming

  • Mandrill08
    Only here cuz these two weebs told me to.
    Love the honest takes from Rem (minus the bias). Appreciate all of the work you guys put into the show. I respect the criticism tho it does seem rem purposefully adds a few insults in there on purpose. Honestly I tend to agree with Rem on quite a few things but the things that Rem tends to nitpick or hate don’t bother me as much. I can definitely see why Rem doesn’t seem to consume a lot of media given his high standards for what he considers good content. Recommendation: Dog and Scissors. I doubt Rem would actually like the anime itself but the Mc reincarnated as a cute puppy so I figured that might level playing field a smudge.
  • (:Me112:)
    It’s a great time, as long as you’re not hoping for a positive review. Rem does a great job of describing his thoughts in an entertaining way. However he will not enjoy most anime, since he seems to favor shows that respect his time.
  • [Dracula]
    This podcast is very funny, I love the idea of a weeb forcing someone ignorant to anime. Some of the jokes are immensely funny and send dopamine through out the dark depths of my soul. Beware, this is only the beginning, there are much worse anime to come. There is no escape from the terror rising from the depths of the abyss…

  • Ehughes17
    Totally Recommend!
    One of my favorite podcasts. Remington’s responses and critiques are hilarious but also thorough. Poor Shaun tries to defend his favorites. If you are sensitive or take this too seriously, you won’t like it.
  • Mr. Chadsta
    Love it; and of course Harry Potter is my favorite anime.
  • ultimate jt
    Read this!!!
    Love listening too both of my favorite waifus talk about anime and let’s admit rem likes anime he doesn’t hate it

    Love this listen to it everyday
  • rem is right
    The semi-weeb
    I’ve watched anime for a decent time and these two have shown me some anime to keep away from(Attack on titans, Sword art online) and some shows that would be good to watch(Naruto without the filler and One piece because Remington Chase said he would watch all 1000+ episodes)
  • Uranimewifudaddy
    Gods of making sad animes funny
    Literally listen tho Rem and Sean everyday. Don’t think I could live without this podcast
  • Caroline Dyer
    This podcast is really fun to listen to. However they are wrong about kuroko no basuke. It is my favorite anime of all time.
  • tank8521
    Just listened to the black clover episode. Yes I do remember zatch bell, was the first anime I watched and it is now 2022 and it’s coming back! Do an episode on it! GREAT PODCAST. 10/10
  • kingthomas0123
    It’s good
    Remington if I ever meet you in the real world. I’m bringing a pitchfork.
  • godlyseak
    Need to see rem getting punished

    Rem needs this

    The time is nigh for my review
    For those genuinely looking for a review, I love this podcast and listen whenever I have feee time (and even when I don’t 🫢). Remington will destroy your soul at least once if you listen for any amount of time but it is still always entertaining. I love this podcast I’ve been told that if there are 10 new reviews by June someone gets thwacked… I vote that we thwack them both 😈 P.S. everyone request testament of the sister: new devil
  • Oswald Prince
    This is my favorite podcast ever, but…
    I tend to agree with Remington’s points even with shows I like. Attack on Titan for example. Love it, but I get the points he makes. But I will never forgive Rem’s takes on Gurren Lagann for as long as I live.
  • A_Bunnie

    I’ve been listening for over a year and a half now and it has been such a fun experience and with so much content available, it makes it all the more amazing. Love you guys <3
  • winstcas
    Hit ‘em
    I agree with Rem on almost all anime. So yeah he’s got to get spanked….
  • Dkhxyz2001
    Super funny
    Remington honestly gets too much hate. I do think he’s very cynical, but his and Sean’s interactions are honestly the highlight of this podcast.
