Podcast 12 A Certain Magical Index

Light Novel Podcast episode 12 a certain magical index

In this episode of the Light Novel Podcast, we talk about the long-running series, A Certain Magical Index (Toaru Majutsu no Index) by Kazuma Kamachi. Between the original series and its sequel, New Testament, it has nearly 50 volumes in Japan. Unfortunately, we are a ways behind in the English market, having not yet completed the main series.
But we thought it was a good time to talk about the series as the third season of the anime, which is predicted to complete the adaptation of the original series, is currently airing. It only took eight years or so to get it!

Podcast 11 Goblin Slayer

light novel podcast episode 11 goblin slayer blog header

*WARNING* This podcast is about the light novel series, Goblin Slayer. It will contain discussions about the topics of rape and violence. Listener discretion advised.
We will be comparing how the light novel, manga, and anime cover the mature content in Goblin Slayer in different ways. We’ll also discuss the controversy that surrounded the first episode and the response of the anime community.

Goblin Slayer is a fantasy series about an adventurer who has dedicated his life to hunting goblins. As his fame for taking these typically low-paying, high-risk, jobs grows, he is approached by other adventurers.
