We discuss Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, All Out!!, Super Lovers, Blue Exorcist, Masamune-kun’s Revenge, Saga of Tanya the Evil, the dropping of Seiren, the awesomeness and artistic beauty of Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju, the sheer adorableness of Interviews with Monster Girls, ACCA, Tiger Mask W, the manliness of Onihei, Dragon Ball Super, Iron-Blooded Orphans, Gintama, elDlive, and Yowapeda. Air’s distaste for Handshakers inspires a temporary new feature for the podcast “I Dare You To Love This.” Zack has been dared to love Handshakers…
