On this episode of Bakacast, Seikaisuru Kado finally ends, and boy were we not prepared for what the ending had in store for us. After boggling at the finale for a while, we get into the first new episodes of the summer 2017 season, which include crazy-faces, magic robots, and a Fate/Whatever intro episode that's actually exciting for once.

All good things must come to an end, even Little Witch Academia and Eccentric Family. We bid farewell to these to excellent shows the only way we know how: by analyzing them with far too much depth.

On this episode of Bakacast, Aaron, Ben and I discuss the full implications of Seikaisuru Kado going completely buck wild and what it maybe should have payed more attention to. Also, I propose my theory for an alternate reading of Little Witch's themes, Rage of Bahamut gives us one of the few tragic-backstory flashbacks I've seen done well in anime, and Ben and I break down the highs and lows of Gundam Thunderbolt's seventh episode.

On this episode of Bakacast, My Hero Academy delivers unto us one of the most beautiful animation sequences I've seen in a show in recent years. Also, Alice gets mildly interesting again, Little Witch starts tying all its narrative threads together, Virgin Soul is shockingly funny considering everyone is in prison, and I nerd out over Eccentric Family. Also we finally get a hint that things might end up going bad in Kado.

It's finally happened. Our favorite doofus from the original season of Rage of Bahamut has come back to grace our screens. Everything is now right with the world (save for Amira still being locked away forever, but I'll take what I can get). Also on this episode: we spend about 20 minutes thoroughly dissecting Kado, and I--in complete seriousness--compare Eccentric Family with Bakemonogatari.

On this episode of Bakacast, Ben and I start off the show by talking about what's been going on in the Attack on Titan manga and the chapters we're really looking forward to seeing adapted. We then move on to Alice to Zouroku--which seems to be showing signs of life again--and get very excited about the dramatic developments happening in Little Witch Academia and Rage of Bahamut. Oh yeah, and we talk briefly about Re-Creators.

On this episode of Bakacast, Aaron, Ben and I once again have a lot of fun diving deep into Seikaisuru's events, implications and eccentricities. But you know what really makes me happy? The episode of Little Witch we review this time is focused on Diana, aka the best character in the show. I finally get a chance to elucidate my interpretation of her character and motivations, and you better believe I took that chance and ran with it.

On this episode of Bakacast, I over-indulge the literary critic inside me. But can you really blame me, when Seikaisuru Kado, Eccentric Family and Gundam Thunderbolt all air in the same season and give me so much juicy writing to pick apart and savor? Sometimes anime is pretty okay.

On this episode of Bakacast, we finally get around to talking about the new Mobile Suit Gundam: Thunderbolt episodes. Turns out we still love Thunderbolt, y'all. Also discussed on this episode: the tactical usage of summoned hands, why Seikaisuru Kado not having character arcs is actually okay, and now Nina from Rage of Bahamut is slowly growing on us.
