Anime Roundtable v2.0 Space Heater Chat – September 4 2021: Shang Chi and the Internet Being the Internet

So how do we spend the 50th recording of the Pandemic Series?…well it isn’t a proper Roundtable

SPOILER WARNING!! We do talk a fair amount about the plot of the movie. So if you haven’t seen it yet and don’t want to be surprised…

Yup we saw Shang Chi. Yup we have thoughts on it. We’ll talk about it in terms of certain plot specifics, the dynamics of the two lead characters, how this will fit in the context of stage four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe both in plot and marketing, thoughts on Asian representation in Hollywood with Mike giving a quick history lesson, and the music

Then we actually go a little anime side by coming back to John Cho’s thoughts on the live action Cowboy Bebop and how fans might be too hung up on how certain characters look…to a possible One Piece live action? Before ending with the Anime Community Calendar 

It’s tangential, it’s raw, it’s uncensored and unedited. It’s a back to school, post Labour Day Space Heater Chat
