Zack started out with news (1:34) talking about Soul Hunter and Reborn. Then he got into Sea Prince and the Fire Child (4:02) which then led to a discussion about Unico (6:40). Somehow talking about Active Raid (7:25) ended up being about Kurosawa films (11:10).
Zack introduces a new format/concept for his Lesser Known Classics segment (1:27:49). He presents a group of titles he refers to as “pleasant surprises” listed in the order we will watch (and talk about them). Next week is: LILY C.A.T.!
Future weeks are: Roujin Z, A Wind Named Amnesia, They Were Eleven, Giant Gorg, and finally Shura no Toki.
