Thanks for listening and we hope to see you next week!

Episode 8: We Finally Get to the Basement!

We’re back with lots to discuss. Finally, AoT fans, we find out what is in the fucking basement! Woo!

After some pointless banter, we get into News (1:11) and Zack talks about sake documentaries, XCOM 2, Reiki Punch, and Osamu Tezuka’s Apollo’s Song (6:54). Air dives into JoJo’s (13:09), catching up on the D. Gray Man anime (13:26), and how Food Wars relates to real life (17:23).

Then it’s a special edition of New Release Tuesday…BL TUESDAY!!! (35:53)


Somehow the conversation rounds about to Osamu Tezuka but then we get back on track talking about Crunchyroll Manga (51:12). Highlights are Heroic Legend of Arslan, Fairy Tail, Sukedachi 09, Inside Mari, and WHAT IS IN THE BASEMENT in Attack on Titan.

Time for this week’s Shonen JUMP (1:04:02) and the final Kishimoto/Togashi interview (1:46:19). Don’t ask how we end up talking about Fullmetal Alchemist (2:05:00) and voice actors. By request we kind of talk about Wolf Children (3:07:05).

Finally it’s over (3:27:26).
