She's really good at The Nutcracker suite.

On this episode of Bakacast OH GOOD LORD THERE ARE SO MANY SHOWS! WHY DO THERE HAVE TO BE SO MANY GOOD SHOWS?! Much like a hydra, for every show we drop, two or more take its place. While this situation does make me happy, I'm also reciting a silent prayer for the death of my free time.

Bakacast #218 – More Like Cross ASS, Am I Right?

Because there are a lot of close-ups on butts and also the show's bad. This podcast title works on multiple levels.

So I guess it's time for fall. I was kind of hoping that most everything would suck so I could take a bit of a breather this season, but since when does the universe ever do what I want it to? Instead, we have a surprisingly large and varied stable of decent-to-great shows that will likely only get larger once we review Parasyte and Psycho-Pass S2. Thankfully, there's at least one show that straight-up sucks so we can have a bit of fun ripping it to shreds. Take a wild guess which one it is.

Logicomas are taking our jobs.

On this episode of Bakacast, we close out the fall season by ranting about Gun Gale Online, Tokyo ESP, and Zankyou no Terror. Thankfully, Space Dandy and Ghost in the Shell: Arise were there to save what would otherwise be a pretty disappointing week.

Bakacast #216 – What’s My Motivation?

No, seriously, what is it? The writers never told me.

In this belated episode of Bakacast (thanks, work and school!), there's a whole lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth. Largely in the direction of Adlnoah Zero and Zankyou no Terror, but Tokyo Ghoul and Gun Gale both receive their fair share. I suppose this is my punishment for my terrible decision at the start of this season to judge Nozaki-kun by its cover. I'm sorry, okay? I've realized my mistake! Please stop hurting me!

Effect: Target Empire sends half their fleet to the graveyard.

The mediocrity keeps on rolling in this episode of Bakacast. Between a lackluster JoJo fight, Gun Gale spending most of their episode on tedious exposition (and BUTTS BUTTS BUTTS), and Aldnoah Zero having several of ridiculous action scenes back to back, it's a good thing that Space Dandy, Kill La Kill, Hanamonogatari and LoGH are here to pick up the slack.

Why bother with interesting conflicts and development when you can just open the floodgates?

It's a disappointing week for anime on this episode of Bakacast (well, for some of the hosts, anyway). Even JoJo's manages to underwhelm. Thankfully, Mushi-shi is here to remind us of how excellent it is and tantalize us with yet another season. Speaking of which, fall is nearly upon us, isn't it? I'll be crossing my fingers that next season isn't quite such a timesink as this one was.

Bakacast #213 – Don’t Split the Party

Clearly Kirito has never played a session of D&D.

Since Ben was busy having fun playing tabletop games, it's just Larry, Aaron and me this week. This means we'll be holding off on Mushishi and Hanamonogatari until next time. Fortunately, that still leaves us with plenty to talk about, such as: how Tokyo Ghoul is pretty much a gory version of Sword Art Online; why Aldnoah Zero doesn't make any sense; and the mounting evidence that Tokyo ESP's anime-original content is doing far more harm than good.

Bakacast #212 – This Week Kinda Sucked

Posted by Dustin

At least LoGH will never let us down.

It's a bit of a depressing week on Bakacast. JoJo is merely mediocre, Argevollen and Zankyou no Terror are downright stupid, and the artists of Gun Gale Online have taken a sudden interest in really making sure we notice Shinon's butt. And despite our reticence to drop shows this late into the season, there has been at least one casualty. I'd tell you to try and guess which one, but my rigid formatting standards require me to spoil it in the timestamps below; so it would be a bit pointless, wouldn't it?

On the other hand, we also get to watch Hanamonogatari, so it ain't all bad.

Bakacast – This Is Entirely Too Long

This season is going to kill my voice.

On this nearly-three-hour episode of Bakacast (yes, really), we spend way too much time on both our reviews and listener questions. But mostly just on listener questions, which lead us down many and varied topics (including a check-in from Megan!). Also, we review the Girls Und Panzer movie, which served to remind us all that, yeah, that show somehow managed to be pretty darn good. If only Argevollen could be even half as exciting...

See ya later, whimsical-animation cowboy.

On this week's Bakacast, not only do we watch "The Wind Rises," but we also managed to review it in a fairly timely fashion. Well, timely for us, anyway. Also, after much prodding from Ben and all you guys, I finally got around to checking out Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. Turns out that show is good. Who would have thought.
