Episode 11: Man Feelings & Testosterone Tears

Welcome to Episode 11! We start off with News (1:05) where Zack talks about Yakuza 0 and XCOM2 (maybe instead of News this should be called Zack’s Video Games Corner?). Turns out he also watched Kulipari on Netflix.

Air goes on a rant (14:56) inspired by #ComicBookHour tweets which segues into a rant about yuri (23:20).

Then Zack gives you the Staring Into The Abyss With Osamu Tezuka segment (30:12). This week’s Tezuka is The Book of Human Insects.

It’s time for a HUGE New Release Tuesday! (45:22)

This one isn’t exactly a new release but it was new to me & I had to share.
