47 – Avatar: The Last Airbender w. Sophie Gareau-Brennan

Collective Legacy member Sophie Gareau-Brennan joins us yet again, this time to talk about a freshly finished show: Avatar: The Last Airbender.

So spoilers for the series; we talk about our favourite characters, story arcs, what kind of bender we’d like to be. It’s a pretty fun time of us discussing the show right after finishing it (and before we watch Korra).

So make sure to hit up Sophie via her Twitter if you’d like to chat more about Avatar or foodstuffs or other things; or just check out the show we host: We Watch Food.

Follow this show on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!

37 – Aggretsuko & Kawaii w. Sophie Gareau-Brennan

Sophie Gareau-Brennan is back and here to talk about the very definition of modern cuteness: Netflix’s Aggretsuko & the aesthetic culture of kawaii [neat & cute].

We give our backgrounds with anime, talk about how awesome Aggressive Retsuko is, and Sophie teaches Mitch all about the intertwined history of Sanrio and kawaii.

If you enjoyed Sophie & Mitch talking about things, then you’d probably also enjoy them talking about food on their podcast: We Watch Food. They’ve got an Instagram, a Twitter, and a Facebook.

07 – Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma (S.1 E.2)

Sophie & Mitch continue their dive into the fan-service-y world of Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma.

Mitch provides a brief history of fan service (in general & in anime), Sophie elaborates on street rat tropes, and they both attempt to guess how many boob-bounces there’ll be with the patented Misty May Counter!

Mitch got a lot of his research from Mother’s Basement – a very informative anime analysis channel.

06 – Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma (S.1 E.1)

Now here’s something new for both Sophie and Mitch: a shōnen cooking anime with a surprising amount of fan service; Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma.

Sophie unpacks how to process this show without much anime experience, Mitch attempts to explain why the boobs have their own physics, and they both dissect the show’s portray of tasty food.

21 – Fullmetal Alchemist w. Tessa Simpson

Clap your hands together (in what may seem like a prayer) for fellow Collective Legacy podcaster Tessa Simpson, as we immediately dive into spoilery talk about Fullmetal Alchemist.

We discuss how we first got into manga/anime, how we discovered the series – be it by book or by one of the two animes – who our favourite characters are, why you should avoid the Netflix film, and SO MUCH MORE. Seriously folks, we pretty much just gush about FMA for like 90 minutes; it’s great.

You can find more of Tessa on either of her shows: Rollin’ Solo (http://collectivelegacy.org/our-podcasts/rollin-solo/) and Fanimorphs: The Dork-Bajir Chronicles (http://collectivelegacy.org/our-podcasts/fanimorphs/) wherever you get your podcasts. You can also talk Fullmetal or Animorphs or whatever with Tessa on Twitter (https://twitter.com/MiscKlaire).
