28 – Terminally Committing to the Bit

Play

Chapters 11 and 12, “Refinement” parts 1 & 2, are pretty short, but that doesn’t mean MXTX isn’t cramming as much tomfoolery into them as possible. This week, Wei Wuxian gets gang-owned, somebody says The Thing, and we discover the consequences of Resting Depression Face. Also, we pay tribute to our favorite confirmed himbo, since our “dear author” sure isn’t gonna!

27 – The Steven Expanded Universe

Play

On this special Late Night edition of PodRecesses, we’re reading chapters 9 & 10, “Arrogance” parts IV and V. Turns out that from the Lan sect’s billionaire brain poisoning to Wei Wuxian’s messy bitch prions to Roy’s elf brain, everyone’s brains are on fire! Except for Wen Ning, who doesn’t have one at all. And while we unfortunately have to say goodbye to a long-standing segment, we do spend entirely too long talking about a certain AU, so, sorry bout that. Anyway, see you at the asbestos factory!

(also sorry once again for the audio quality! it gets bad for a bit in the beginning and then its tolerable. “we did what we could”)

Hey, uh, reading is hard, folks! Some stuff happens in chapters 6-8, the “Arrogance” arc. An ass has an ass, Lan Wangji and his sports-model guqin show up, a little boy is extremely rude, and Jiang Cheng uses Star Finger. More importantly, though, we celebrate some Very Special birthdays with a Very Special version of one of our favorite segments, so don’t go lighting yourself on fire just yet!

PodRecesses Extended Universe #2: Hearts of Wulin LIVE from Nekocon!

Play

Anybody here game? We sure do, and so do special guests Colin, Sarah, and producer Elliott, who have joined us live in our Virginia Beach studio after the famously 4-star (out of 10) anime convention Nekocon! GM Colin takes us through the “cool n fun” wuxia TTRPG Hearts of Wulin, while Roy, Fallon, and Sarah hop out of their Jin Guangyao, Nie Mingjue, and Wei Wuxian cosplay respectively and right into the spirits of the boys themselves. Wifi makes an enemy of the entire cultivation world (as he tends to), Jiggy passes on the hot chip but lies nonetheless, and NMJ comes face-to-face with Qinghe’s greatest enemy.

SPOILER ALERT: We did get a little bit caught up in the shit of it and forgot about a certain detail being kind of a big spoiler, and it accidentally became kind of a plot point in this oneshot. Forgive us. We be’d drankin

Intro: Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee – Despacito, arr. & perf. by Eelin Lim
Outro: 🐝

Double big extra thanks to Colin for recording & editing this episode!

25 – Sect Leader Rollins

(sorry about some of the audio toward the start of the episode “sometimes it just be like that”)

We’re back, folks, and we’re officially beginning our extended deep dive into the novel that spawned a thousand confusing adaptations! Chapters 1-5, “Prologue,” “Reincarnation,” and “Aggression–Parts I-III,” take us through everything that makes up a Jin Guangshan adventure, deny Mo Xuanyu iPad, and see our dearest dirtiest boy Wei Wuxian committing to the bit, for better or worse. It’s the genius’s way.

23 – I’m Poster Syndrome

Play

With this week’s episode, “Night Rush,” being the (thus far) penultimate of the donghua, we had to bring in our very own Stygian Tigey, Funny Sara of Fearbaiting, The Wonder Yeerks, and HKIPGTD to help us go ghost on all this shit! We’re covering everything from sports, catboys, and the true meaning of King Dedede to the newest and coolest take on FMK and the awful truth about Wei Wuxian’s ideal life. Get your boneitis nap out of the way first, because this one’s a doozy.
