New All Systems Goku staring Jeff and... Alex? Weirdly, I wonder if Alex's movie reviewing experience would be fun and interesting with the insanity that is anime.
All Systems Goku Staring Jeff and ... ?
Honestly, it wouldn't even necessarily require Jeff be on it. Or that they watch Dragonball, for that matter. Goku as a character is more or less synonymous with anime, so a podcast called All Systems Goku could totally be about whatever show/movie they were interested in.
- Jeff/Vinny (assuming Dan's not available) watching OG Dragonball? Sure.
- Alex/Abby watching the works of Satoshi Kon? Cool.
- Ben/Jan watching Digimon Adventure? Why not?
Ben has some familiarity with OG Dragon Ball and has spoke highly of it whenever it comes up, and Jeff showed a lot of interest in it whenever they made callbacks to it in Kai. Ben would probably be the best fit for a future installment of the ASG, and original Dragon Ball is different enough from Z and Super as too bring in some fresh discussions and experiences, aside from GT which would just be dunking on it nonstop which may or may not actually be enjoyable.
Jan could also tag along with him being on the west coast. It all makes sense given them being in the same office.
Vinny and Alex would also be fun fits, but Vinny might be too familiar with the source or busy with his duties to devote time to it.
And while I would love to hear Alex’s take on this nonsense, he’s made it clear he prefers to appreciate the Dragonball franchise from a distance and not directly engage with any of it.
The best option of course is to find someway to rope Dan into this, but barring that, Ben makes the most sense, Vinny and Alex are the dream picks.
@bicycle_repairman: That’s a good point. OG Dragonball has wider potential appeal in that sense as opposed to Z and Super where if you don’t love the dumb action, there is significantly less to latch on and get attached too.
Dragonball’s heavier emphasis on adventure, comedy, and character writing are probably easier for people to get into that aren’t partial to the loud dumb action of the later series, as popular as said action is.
