Over the past few years a combination of overspending and lack of tax revenue has put the city of Kyoto in a precarious financial situation, made worse by the lack of domestic and international tourism to the city during the pandemic. The Japan Times' senior national correspondent, Eric Johnston, joins us from Osaka to explain Kyoto's problems, and what the city needs to do to get itself out its predicament.

Fall is here gang and it boy howdy are we pretty damn excited about it. We've gone back and forth but both of us agree that we were feeling a little bit burnt out after the Summer season but Fall has really reminded us why we started this podcast in the first place, to watch some good stuff. We're doing our first impressions of the season, we're highlighting our outright favorites of the premiers so far as well as some potential sleeper hits that might go under the radar. We've also got a healthy number of weird titles that are so bizarre they're at least worth watching one episode. Also if you're into vampires this season has you covered big time. In the last bit of the episode we circle back to last season's buy it or deny it to see how wrong we really were and then make some bold new predictions about this season so we'll see how we do at a later date. Summer's rankings are still up and the Fall Powercast is only a little ways away so get all that ranking goodness over at the site.
Japan's hopes of World Cup qualification suffered a major blow with a 1-0 loss to Saudi Arabia on Thursday. The loss in Jeddah was the second in three games for the Japanese after a surprise defeat by the Omani in Osaka last month. - 2022のFIFA ワールドカップ出場を目指す日本はオーストラリア東部夏時間の８日、サウジアラビアに０対１で破れアジア最終予選での戦績は１勝２敗となりました。ワールドカップ出場を確実にするには最終的にグループBの２位以上に入る必要があり、日本の前途は極めて厳しくなりました。日本の次の試合は12日に埼玉スタジアムで行われるオーストラリア戦です。
It's time for what is without a doubt one of the stupidest episodes we have ever done. This week since we're in a little bit of a lull between season we decided to put our ignorance on full display and rank all of the Hololive VTuber characters we could find. We know very little about VTubers but decided to give you our opinion all the same based on character design and the profiles that the Hololive site provides. This is meant to be a fun way for us to delve into the weird world that is VTubers so please take our opinions with a grain of salt since again, we know nothing. If you want a visual to follow along with what we're talking about it can be found at the Hololive site under talents which I'll also link in this episode. We'll be back to our normal content next week, but let us know if you liked this or if you found it really stupid.

Yet another season has come to an end and so we must continue our time honored tradition of celebrating the highs, poking fun at the lows, and most importantly giving out This Just Trophies to all who deserve them. As always we'll be recapping the end of the season rankings and justifying our choices as to where things landed before moving on to the more fun part of the episode. We've got our normal categories you might expect form any awards show as well as a few you have probably never even thought of. And as always we'll find out who this season's BGBFG is!

As we say in this episode, the Laver Cup served boring this year. Nevertheless, we're here to recap the important parts of some of the best ATP and WTA action last week, as well as a few key moments from the Team Europe vs. Team World showdown (blowout): Annett's title roll, Sakkari's top ten debut, Hubi grabbing two trophies in Moselle, Kwon making history for South Korea, and key reflections on Opelka's comment about Zverev and the Laver Cup ignoring the Zverev allegations. We also discuss Hot Headlines, including Federer's recovery and recent comments on social media and pressure put on players like Raducanu and Osaka, as well as recent coaching splits on the WTA tour. The Laver Cup may have been lamer this year, but that doesn't mean that the two of us don't make the best of our chat in this episode.

Nice!Ok now for the real description. First off we officially hit 2000 downloads on this podcast! we think that's pretty damn cool, so a big thank you to everyone who's listened as we continue to record ourselves bullshitting about anime every week. This week we're all but finished with the Summer season, so we thought we'd do a little recap ahead of our awards cast next week. We're talking some of our favorite moments, sleeper hits, and maybe even a couple of disappointments as well. Then in the second half of the episode we're looking ahead at what is shaping up to be a tremendous fall season, on paper at least. We're speculating as to the heavy hitters, what the absolute trash will be, and pondering why there are so many vampire titles all of a sudden. We hope you enjoy, if you want to see Summer rankings before they disappear they're over at the site for you to peruse at your leisure.
Rakugo, a popular form of comic storytelling, has played a major role in Japanese culture and society. Developed during the Edo (1600–1868) and Meiji (1868–1912) periods, it is still popular today, with many contemporary Japanese comedians having originally trained as rakugo artists. Rakugo is divided into two distinct strands, the Tokyo tradition and the Osaka tradition, with the latter having previously been largely overlooked. This pioneering study of the Kamigata (Osaka) rakugo tradition presents the first complete English translation of five classic rakugo stories, and offers a history of comic storytelling in Kamigata (modern Kansai, Kinki) from the seventeenth century to the present day. Considering the art in terms of gender, literature, performance, and society, The Comic Storytelling of Western Japan: Satire and Social Mobility in Kamigata Rakugo (Cambridge UP, 2021) grounds Kamigata rakugo in its distinct cultural context and sheds light on the 'other' rakugo for students and scholars of Japanese culture and history. Jingyi Li is a PhD Candidate in Japanese History at the University of Arizona. She researches about early modern Japan, literati, and commercial publishing. Learn more about your ad choices.

Toute cette semaine nous tentons de retracer l'histoire de la mesure du temps liée, bien évidemment, à une histoire de l'horlogerie. Comment la Suisse a-t-elle rendu son industrie horlogère dynamique et occupé ainsi une place dominante? Pour en parler, nous retrouvons Pierre-Yves Donzé, historien spécialiste de l'horlogerie actuellement professeur à l'université d'Osaka, au Japon. Il est notamment l'auteur de "Histoire de l'industrie horlogère suisse, XIX et XXème siècles" ainsi que de "Les patrons horlogers de la Chaux-de-Fonds". Photo: Paul Guillard, horloger à Genève en 1921. L'histoire de l'horlogerie suisse n'est pas un long fleuve tranquille. Au contraire, elle est jalonnée de crises. Au terme de la Première Guerre mondiale par exemple, c'est l'Etat qui doit intervenir pour sauver cette industrie de premier plan. (© Journal de la haute horlogerie)
We took a week off last week because we're all busy people and there was a holiday, but we're back with an extra long jam packed episode full of all your favorite topics. As usual we've got some news but our main topic is how genres and tropes that anime rely on have shown their age and maybe need to be replaced. We're talking a lot about how shows are classified specifically by gender, but we also spend some time talking about how overused ideas can lead to lazy storytelling and reinforce antiquated ideas. We're also highlighting Edens Zero which recently premiered on Netflix and is a prime example of some of the tropes we talk about in the first segment. We even have two last week's one big things because we know you like them so much.
Au Moyen Âge, une époque où les corporations et les métiers prennent toujours plus de place, il faut rythmer la journée et les activités quotidiennes avec une certaine rigueur. C'est alors que naissent les horloges mécaniques; répondant de fait à un véritable besoin. Le temps a toujours constitué un instrument de pouvoir. Lorsqu'on s'en rend maître, on peut aussi, par exemple, dominer les mers. Et les êtres humains l'ont rapidement compris. Cette histoire de la perception et de la mesure du temps est bien sûr indissociable de l'histoire de l'horlogerie. Nous avons donc voulu réaliser un entretien enregistré à distance avec Pierre-Yves Donzé, historien spécialiste de l'horlogerie, actuellement professeur à l'université d'Osaka, au Japon. Il est notamment l'auteur de "Histoire de l'industrie horlogère suisse, XIX et XXème siècles" ainsi que de "Les patrons horlogers de la Chaux-de-Fonds". Nous poursuivons également le récit chronologique en nous arrêtant sur les révolutions dans ce domaine à partir du XVIIe siècle, grâce à Laurence Isaline Stahl-Grestch, responsable du Musée d'histoire des sciences de Genève.

From Emma Raducanu's second straight run at a slam to Carlos Alcaraz, the third of this trio of 18 year olds making a deep run, who post-recording of this episode would unfortunately retire in his quarter-final due to injury. Sticking with Canada, it would be FAA benefiting from that Alcarez's retirement to secure his first slam semi against Daniil Medvedev, with the guys conflicted in their choice in the top half of the draw. Will a young gun like Berretini or even Lloyd Harris make it deep, or can Zverev continue his summer winning ways? Lest we forget the guy to beat: Novak Djokovic... just three wins away from the calendar grand slam, and slam #21! With new stars emerging, the guys wonder if everyone is ready for this new guard, or still clamouring for the injured greats of the sport. They already have their answer.
After a thrilling first week of the US Open, Carson breaks down the biggest storylines, from Djokovic's continued pursuit of the calendar year grand slam to the breakout young stars making names for themselves!

Reunited for their first in-person show together in more than 18 months, Ben and Courtney chat in New York on the eve of the U.S. Open about storylines from the men's and women's draws, including: Who, if anyone, can derail Novak Djokovic? Why is Stefanos Tsitsipas a good draw for Andy Murray? What do we make of Barty's increasingly impressive reign at #1, and can Osaka or Andreescu contend without much match play? And what about all the top players who are missing? Tangents on Venus Williams in Chicago, Jil Teichmann, and the surprising person whom Ben spoke to this week about a fast-rising qualifier.
