The consensus is in: Bleach is not “terrible!” The gang begins their descent into Bleach’s canonical hell (well, purgatory), Hueco Mundo! Another lady is need of saving, the Espada are in need of a beating, and Kubo’s backgrounds are in need of some buildings! We’re only halfway through, so hang in there!
Darryl pronounces “Re-su-rrec-ción” as “Rez-or-reck-zion” like an estupido extranjero, Phil wants to control our sovereignty, Sly thinks this arc is the best yet, and Ryan has checked out. Podcaster’s note: Nakama means friend.
Darryl pronounces “SHI-KAI” as “SHIK-KAI” like a baka gaijin, Ryan fantasizes about Byakuya and Ichigo kissing, Phil enjoys teaming up with his rival, and Sly can only understand media through the lens of Yu-Gi-Oh.
This was going to be Bleach part 2 of 4. Who knows how long this will take now?
Darryl pronounces ZAN-PAK-TO as ZAN-PACK-TO like a baka gaijin, Sly thinks everyone looks like Rukia, Ryan’s concerned over the age of his kouhai, and Phil takes off his eyepatch to enjoy Bleach with 100% of his power.
We’re entering triple digits with something special, Bleach! The manga, that is. We’re gonna be covering it for the next few episodes in big chunks, hand picked by our very own Darryl. This is part 1.
Darryl mispronounces KA-RIN as KAR-IN like a baka gaijin, Sly only knows one thing from Bleach three separate times, Ryan likes the girl with big boobs NOT for the reason you’d think, and–shocker–Phil really likes shonen tropes.
Sly’s been painting targets on his forehead, Darryl appreciates how anime the Ultimates 3 is, Ryan doesn’t understand how Quicksilver can identify DNA-seeking bullets, and Phil simply can’t understand DNA-seeking bullets.
All good things must come to an end, so we end the #flyerdrive right when we wrap up our coverage of DC’s year-long weekly series, 52. Do Phil and Darryl think it lives up to hype when Ryan and Sly described it as the greatest comic story every written? Find out as we cover issues 40-52! And make sure you listen to Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 first because we will be following a strict NO RECAP rule.
On this episode, Phil gets very heated about steam engines, Sly can’t keep anyone’s name straight, Darryl gets buried with the Crime Bible, and Ryan seeds all the plots.
The #flyerdrive continues with our third (of four) episode on DC’s magnum opus, 52! It’s issues 27-39! And if this is your first time, make sure you listen to part one and part two first!
Sly cannot pronounce Nanda Parbat, Ryan feels Elongated Man’s pain, Phil finds space zombies more plausible than the Crime Bible, and Darryl finds something worse than Lobo. Oh, and Dennis? Merry Christmas.
