The Wind Rises

Disclaimer: weeaboos with a podcast is crude, lewd, and full of dudes. If you are easily offended by dark humor, foul language, and rampant lunacy, then stay far, far away. You have been warned.

On this week’s episode: we get ready for Christmas and the end of the year by getting into the holiday spirit… or at least we attempt to. We begin the show by giving our thoughts on Rust, a new survival/crafting game by the creator of Garry’s Mod that is currently available through Steam Early Access. Afterwords, we read a short Christmas themed manga titled December’s Melting Snow and ask ourselves what really matters during this time of the year. Then in our Weeaboo Roundtable, we discuss Hayao Miyazaki’s latest and final film, The Wind Rises. Is this his best work yet and does it deserve all the praise that it’s getting? Also, will the famed director really retire after this film or will he return like he has in the past? Finally, we wrap up with some notable news like the reveal of Tales of Zestiria, and Nintendo’s latest announcements like Hyrule Warriors, Dr. Luigi and Rosalina’s addition to the new Super Smash Bros.
