Anime Sickos: A podcast for geniuses exploring the four pillars of modern misery: anime, gaming, posting, and jobs.

Jul 25, 2023

The Anime Sickos present: Sicko Shock 2 - A Miniseries in Six Episodes.


In the year 42069, humanity survives in the last livable place on Earth: the domed cyberpunk dystopia Sicko City. In Sicko City, all citizens are required to jack in to cyberspace every day to view and engage with content generated by “Posters,” mega-celebrities who live like gods. But beneath its shimmering surface, five forgotten people are about to make history...

Sherry Vaporware is an artist. Devastated by the arrest of her political dissident husband, she has spent years privately expressing her feelings through music. But what if her music wasn’t private? In a world where only Posters are permitted to make new content, what’s left for an artist?
