MetaVerse Episode 41: Skylion’s House


We get to know a bit more about Metanorn’s LOLi Defender 

We had Skylion on ep. 40 to talk spring anime, but we didn’t interview him as we normally do with the New Blood writers on Metanorn, so we’ve put Skylion in the “hot seat” to do just that. In addition to that, we talk about Hunter x Hunter’s return to Weekly Shonen Jump, Nature Valley’s twitter feed and also some thoughts on Mahouka and Nisekoi.



08:00Interview w/ Skylion

42:50Extra Chatter – Spring ’14 shows, Manga adaptations we’d like to see and convention talk


OP: “Marshmallow Justice” by Eri Kitamura from Nisemonogatari

ED: “Overfly” by Haruna Luna from Sword Art Online

    Linking the manga I mentioned.



    Boku Girl.

    Great. skylion’s house. And I get eaten by spammy.

  3. Di Gi Kazune says:

    Skylolion, I mean skylolion… err… I meant skyLION’s house is filled with young, underaged, cute people of the female persuasion and the occasional trappu. It is a fortress that is daunting to assault.

    • skylion says:

      Tread careful. Tread wise.

    • BlackBriar says:

      A good general must be able to consider all possible scenarios and have a plan that attacks fortress on all fronts to expose a weak point then focus all available power there until a breach is attained.

      • skylion says:

        …yep, put everyone in one spot…on my home turf…

        • BlackBriar says:

          Hehehe…. Only after a weak spot in the structure has been found, break through it and we storm the fortress like a bunch of thieves looking for the big score.

          • skylion says:

            …my princesses are in other castles…

            • Di Gi Kazune says:

              We will assault all the castles at once! Unlike some plumber.

            • BlackBriar says:

              And as soon as I relieve you of them, they’ll become content residents in my vampire castle. Any intruders who trespass will find themselves impaled on spikes. 😉

            • skylion says:

              Did I say princesses? I meant traps.

            • Di Gi Kazune says:

              In the words of a certain Tohno: A Trap is fine too!

            • skylion says:

              The trap is a trap. They explode. Rocks fall. Everyone dies.

  4. BlackBriar says:

    I knew skylion would eventually get the hot seat. If anyone asks what’s that smell in the air, it’s the result of a burning mythical creature. 😉 Looks like we have something in common. My favorite color is green as well. If you do find interest in M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane thanks to later episodes, be ready for a long haul now that it’s confirmed as a two cour series.

    Jrow: No, no,no,no. No reminiscing about older MetaVerse posts. I remember leaving behind a monstrous sized comment on one of them, a massive wall of text. Episode 18: Gone Fishing, if memory serves and it shocked all who saw. I was so embarrassed it wouldn’t be surprising if steam came out of my ears while falling into disbelief. I think that qualifies as leaving a mark on Metanorn. Hahaha!!

    For Persona 4: Golden. Is there really a point to animating it if it’s basically the same series only with one additional character? Even if Kana Hanazawa joins, does it make a difference? I saw the series while it was airing as Overcooled and Karakuri were Tag Teaming and from an anime-only viewer’s perspective, it already felt complete. The same feelings are there about Psycho-Pass season 1 returning this Summer though with some added footage.

    • skylion says:

      …the seat was luke-warm at best…

      • BlackBriar says:

        Not what you were expecting, right? Perhaps you thought the questions were going to be more intense.

        • skylion says:

          Disregarding relative temperature, I had a great time. I thought it would be a bit more “favorite” listy. And since I really suck at those, I’m glad it was a fun talk.

    • Highway says:

      Psycho-Pass S1 is only ‘returning’ because noitaminA doesn’t mind reairing the same show again, especially when it’s leading in to a sequel.

      • BlackBriar says:

        You make it sound like a trend they’ve used often. How many times has that been done?

        • Jrow says:

          There’s just a couple instances. Ano Hana was reaired before the movie came out. Katanagatari also aired on noitaminA after the full series had already been released, but I don’t know of any specific reason for reairing the series other than including new theme songs by Supercell and Pico.

    • Jrow says:

      I remember that comment, mainly because I’m still reading through it to this day. :p

      About P4G, I personally didn’t find Marie that interesting a character while I was playing, so I don’t find her inclusion in the anime enough to draw me back in.

      • BlackBriar says:

        I bet seeing the size of it made you uneasy. Still, I never thought I was typing so much. After that, I began separating my comments in segments.

  5. Jrow says:

    Just throwing this out there. What would you like to hear us talk about on future episodes of MetaVerse? We got a couple ideas brewing, but anything Anime-related, current or old, is cool with us. I’m working to make sure we go back to a two-week recording schedule, so I hope to be doing plenty more MetaVerse shows this year.

    • skylion says:

      I’m still thinking. Merch unboxing?

      • Jrow says:

        That’s a video thing, unless you have something specific in mind for the subject and how it can be done audibly.

        • skylion says:

          “Oh, wow look it’s a box with Shinobu in it! It’s a pretty box and it has a pretty Shinobu in it!”

          Yeah, that could totally work, right?

  6. Overcooled says:

    What a sausage fest, geez. Haha, I kid. Nice work, boys! Glad skylion finally got the hot seat.

    What are the chances of two writers here having synesthesia? Cooool.

    Yeah, I’ll be going to Anime North and writing about whateva happens 😀 Still no interviews confirmed (I don’t think I’ll do any) but I’ll make up for it by going to other cool events.

    • skylion says:

      Woot! Good to see you OC! It was indeed a seat, and it got a bit warm there for a spell.

      What are the odds? Any number crunchers out there? Statistics were never my strong point; but once I got sample I could play with it like crazy.

    • Highway says:

      If you’d show up more…

      I don’t think I’ve ever been on a podcast with you. Kara did show up for one of our IS live watches. And I’ve done a MetaVerse with Kyo, I think.

    • Jrow says:

      Bad thing, there’s an episode idea being worked on that ups the sausage level even more.
