Drowning in pumpkin spice
954

Another “whatever we feel like” episode is coming at you today as we talk about coffee. Yes the glorious gift from the gods is greatly debated when it comes to how people take it. Some dump ten pounds of sugar and cream in their blend, while others choose to take a splash of coffee with their pumpkin spice. It's a wide topic to talk about and we don't always agree (but let's be real we all agree that those that take it black are psychopaths).

Record of Ragnarok aka "Dumpster Fire"
1180

The Normal Nerds are back to kick off your week with another great episode. Today we are talking  one of the weirdest anime to ever hit Netflix, Record of Ragnarok. An anime advertised as a punchy fighty arena battle for the fate of humanity turns out to just an effort in time wasting (no really it is, for some reason every character in the arena needs screen time after every punch). This lack luster performance coupled with just a terrible portrayal of the many gods of Mythology made this one of the worst anime we have ever seen…. And you get to hear all about, aren’t you lucky.

Plus Eri gives us one of the most depressing scenes ever. Then in To Your Eternity we get to become even more attached to Gugu, the fire breathing booze salesman, as we careen ever closer to his inevitable death (since this show loves to hurt us in every way possible).

In this week’s anime review part two we take apart Meglobox season 2 and Joran the princess of blood and snow.

Then Joran the princess of blood and snow finds itself on the chopping block as we consider dropping it from our current anime lineup. An interesting show in the beginning but with its confusing storyline and overall indecision on behalf of the main character this show has begun to lose our interest. Let us know in the comments if you think the same, but first and foremost sit back and enjoy another episode of the Normal Nerds Podcast.

In our first ever Dueling Lists episode we compare the Harry Potter Movies and where we think they rank from best to worst. Once you hear the lists let us know in the comments what you think, were these lists good? Do you have your own opinion of what should go where? And most importantly who’s list do you think was the best? (A quick note for this episode we focus on the Harry Potter Movies and NOT the books).

General Grievance - My Hero Academia Gentle Criminal Arc is Terrible
1564

In this week’s general grievance we bring you a semi controversial opinion… WE HATE GENTLE CRIMINAL! The most recent villain in the My Hero Academia universe had an entire arc dedicated to him and we stand by the idea that it is the worst thing to ever happen to the show. Listen to us explain how doing next to nothing for 10 episodes, rapidly scaling down the main hero’s power, and utilizing the actual power of love as a superpower does not make for great content.
