It’s a long one because it’s a new simulcast season and there’s a LOT to talk about!
We start with a little news about how Sorachi-sensei is a blessing on this earth and then we get into this season’s anime, covering: Chronos Ruler, Convenience Store Boy Friends, Saiyuki Reload Blast, Fastest Finger First, Aho-Girl, Elegant Yokai Apartment Life, Clean Freak Aoyama-kun, Knight’s & Magic, Katsugeki Touken Ranbu, Restaurant to Another World, A Centaur’s Life, Hitorijime my Hero, Princess Principal, Welcome to the Ballroom, Altair: A Record of Battles, Made in Abyss, Vatican Miracle Examiner, Dive!!, and Love & Lies.
Don’t worry-we talk a bit about the previous season’s finales (Grimoire of Zero & Tiger Mask W) and our favorite ongoing series (Re:Creators, My Hero Academia, Dragon Ball Super).
Zack talks about To The Top, his new favorite Vive game where you fling yourself around in VR. Air reports back on Golden Kamuy (everyone should read it) and talks about how she’s excited for the summer simulcast season thanks to the Dive PV.
Then we talk about the season winding down, covering My Hero Academia, Starmyu, Berserk, Natsume’s Book of Friends, Re:Creators, Alice & Zoroku, Grimoire of Zero, and Dragon Ball Super.
But of course somehow we end up talking about Yuri on Ice and Reborn too.
Also: don’t get Zack started talking about anything Dragon Ball or you’ll be hanging out for a while.
Zack starts with News about Tekkaman Blade and VR. Air takes over (30:31) with impressions of last week’s new releases (All-Rounder Meguru, Giant Killing, Platinum End, Welcome to the Ballroom, and One Punch Man) and an update of her Rurouni Kenshin rewatch.
Then it’s time for a special edition of New Release Tuesday–Gay Tuesday! (42:20)
**Air’s Note: both of these volumes were read after the podcast was recorded. They were both really great and I recommend them. Hana & Hina especially exceeded my expectations.**
How about those Winter Simulcasts? (45:49) We cover Nanabaka, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, Naruto Shippuden, Interviews with Monster Girls, Saga of Tanya the Evil, Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju, Blue Exorcist, All Out!!, Onihei, Iron-Blooded Orphans, elDLIVE, Gintama, Tiger Mask W, ACCA, and Ancient Magus’ Bride.
We finish up with this week’s Shonen Jump! (1:48:49)
