I want YOUR suggestions!

What is up my pandas? Are you guys having a good weekend? My weekend has been very chill and relaxing. I’ve pretty much been a lazy potato the last two days and I ain’t mad at it. I am asking you all here, mainly because I value all of my followers thoughts/opinions, and I need some creative help!

My boyfriend and I are going to be starting a reaction podcast in which I show him things from anime, manga, and the otaku community. This podcast will be gauging his reaction and how he feels about certain aspects of whatever I show him. My boyfriend is what people in the anime/otaku community would consider a “normie.” He has little to no knowledge of anime or Japanese culture. He has watched One Punch Man and we are working our way through Space Dandy, but that is the extent of what he has watched thus far. I also want to get him into My Hero Academia (since he loves super hero stuff) but that probably won’t be for a little while longer.

I feel like when we are together our dynamic is quite humorous and a bit out there, so we are open to any and all suggestions! I’m looking for off the wall type of suggestions or something that will make him go, “what the hell did I just see/watch/hear?” You know…stuff that only long term anime fans are totally fine with but a non-anime fan would be like wtf??? I wanna see what you guys would want him to react to! I have a few ideas in mind but I would like to hear if you guys have any other fun ideas.

I am also looking for podcast name suggestions! I can’t figure out what name I want to go with! I had the idea of The Pondering Panda or maybe The Panda Pad (like a place you could come chill out in and just listen to us talk about anime) but I am not 100% sold on those names. Any other name/title ideas? I am all ears! The comments section is all yours guys. Bring me some creative juju guys! I NEED IT!

  1. Maybe “The Panda Podcast” for a name? It gets to the point at least.

    For shows…depends on how evil you want to be. If you really want to alienate him from the anime community forever, you’ll want something like Bobobo…(er, that one where the dude fights with his nose hair), NGE or KHR. If you want to be selfish and have something only you understand, you can pick something which is dependent on Japanese wordplay (like Binan Koukou Chikyuu Boueibu LOVE!) or history (like Katsugeki Touken Ranbu). For something with WTF factor but to bring him into the anime community, maybe Tokyo Ghoul (s1) or BnHA.

      1. I like both of those, though I’m a sucker for alliteration in general XD

        As for weird/zany stuff only an anime person could get, maybe Flip Flappers. It gets preeetty trippy, despite being, on its face, a magical girl series (kinda). Mob Psycho 100 maybe. It’s also pretty trippy and weird at times, and also has some vaguely similar sensibilities (storytelling wise, not its message or anything) in common with superhero stuff. Nyaruko-san is basically one big parody of… well… anime culture in general, on some level. So there’s that. Also things like Kill la Kill, maybe. There’s also other obviously bizarre and popular stuff like FLCL. It qualifies, for sure.

        sry. most of the things I can come up with aren’t all that uncommon ideas, so I dunno how helpful I’m being ;-;

      2. I think Kill la Kill would be a fun one to have him react to. I mean…in some context it is a little off the wall (unless you are a true anime fan). I was even thinking of making him watch Devilman Crybaby because that is still the most fucked anime I have ever seen XD

      3. Yeah. Kill la Kill’s suuuper mild to anyone used to anime. And Oof. Devilman Crybaby is definitely gonna be a trip. Haven’t watched it myself. But I know what goes down. That’ll be an interesting one for anyone new to the medium to react to XD

  2. I like “The Pondering Panda”. It sounds pretty right too me, but it could also be something like “ The Panda’s Voice” as of course it’s a podcast.
    As for suggestions to watch. Blood C might be a good choice, because there was some truly insane stuff going on in there. Or for even more shockvalue: Highschool of the Dead. That one is absolutely nuts lol 😂😂
