Method to Madness Podcast: Fist of the North Star 16-20



Episode 116: “Gist of the North Star III”

These episodes of Fist of the North Star are where the show gets especially goofy. Keep in mind that I say that even after the previous episodes we’ve covered.

Within these episodes, Kenshiro single-handedly takes out helicopters, motorcycles, canons, a battleship, a regular tank, and a goddamn tank train. All of these things might be more impressive feats by Ken if they weren’t all so grossly misused. Then there the knife guns and canons that fire dudes with swords.

This is what I’m talking about:

In the Method to Madness podcast, Sean “The Grey Ghost” Ryan and Kevin “The Business” Gray discuss the great anime that you should be watching and the shameful anime we know you’re watching instead.

    Mad props on mentioning Strongbad on the show. You could always do a segment where you answer emails in the Strongbad voice, with clicky clack keyboard sound effects in the background. Would it be lame… yes, but you have my vote.

      Heh, it might be best to leave Strongbad emails to Strongbad. My impression would be criminal; in both quality and copyright infringement.
