Episode 36: Stupid Canon

This week on the A to Z Anime Podcast…

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.
