The inaugural Five Observations podcast episode

Tsuki ga Kirei

Welcome to Five Observations, my new anime and pop culture podcast! Each episode, I will share five things I have been thinking about.

In this first instalment: the little moments in Tsukigakirei, robot fights, Japan’s smiling dystopia, and more. I’m Robert, and here are Five Observations.

1. The little moments in Tsuki ga Kirei are perfect.

2. A106 is not Astro Boy, but they share similar blueprints.

3. Japanese McDonald’s dystopian smile police.

4. Reality TV can highlight cultural differences.

5. AotS is going to be a talking butt.
