Bakacast – The Overachiever

The judges give her 10 points for style.

On this week's episode, a few series show some chinks in their armor, the ones that already looked weak continue to not impress, and Barakamon has somehow become my favorite show. Never would have guessed that one. Also, be aware that I will be going on vacation for a week, which means the next episode will be delayed. We'll make up for it by doubling up on our reviews for that episode. Hopefully it doesn't end up taking, like, four hours.

Bakacast – Not Safe for Lunch

JoJo's has a way of ruining your appetite.

Megan was absent from this episode due to an emergency, but we still manage to talk for an interminably long time thanks to way too many listener questions. Also thanks to a whole lot of summer shows that premiered, most of which we end up enjoying, which was a pleasant surprise. Still, if the shows we liked keep being good, then I fear for how crammed my schedule is gonna get in the coming weeks.

Has your body just been engulfed in flames? Walk it off, man. You'll be fine.

Like with most of the end-of-season episodes we do, we've only got a smattering of reviews to get through. However, we manage to fill the time with a combination of Pale Cocoon and our usual silliness.

Bakacast – Something Worth Smiling About

The hero appears.

It was a pretty darn good week for us Bakacasters. Every show we watched got a perfect score. To make it even better, Ping Pong ended on a higher note than even I expected it to. It feels good to not really have anything to dislike for once.

Bakacast – PER-SO-NA

BUUUUURN MYYYYY DREAAAAAAAD

After the disappointments that were the Star Driver movie and the third Madoka movie (the latter was disappointing to ME, anyway), my cohosts and I were quite relieved that Persona 3: Spring of Birth is actually pretty great. Which is good for me, because I would rather not force you guys to hear me sob uncontrollably.

Also, one of the listener questions asked us about podcasts we listened to. I have quite a few that I like, so I figured it would be a good idea to link them here:
The History of Rome
Revolutions
Radiolab
My Brother, My Brother and Me (Explicit Language)
Sawbones
Hardcore History
The Flop House (Explicit Language)
Giant Bombcast (Explicit Language)
Welcome to Nightvale
99 Percent Invisible

Bakacast – The Longest Recap

Posted by Dustin

We've been adrift for 3 years with no sign of substantial, original content. Send help.

As you might have guessed, this week we review the Star Driver movie. Our reactions are not what you'd describe as "kind." Hopefully the first Persona 3 movie won't create a hat-trick of disappointment.

On the other hand, the rest of the shows that haven't been culled yet leave us with plenty to gush (and speculate) about.

Oh, and if you'd like to hear me and some other dudes talk about video games (and curse a lot), you can follow my other podcast: Anime is for Jurps. Just to warn you, though, we're following the "record whenever we happen to feel like it" schedule for that podcast.

Bakacast – Araki Hates Dogs

Would you like to talk about your issues, Araki? We're here for you, dude.

Mellowship is back from his D&D convention, so I decide to bring back the What'cha Been Doin' segment to talk about Fourth Edition shenanigans. And also Drakengard 3.

Meanwhile, in the reviews section, we finally give up on Captain Earth and Mekaku City Actors; but we at least take solace in the fact that every other show is stronger than ever. We close out the show by looking over next season's offerings and making mostly ill-informed, snap judgments.

Bakacast – The 200th Episode

Oh God, we really did it. We've actually made 200 of these stupid things.

In celebration, I've decided to do something special. The file that will appear in the RSS feed (and automatically download if you're subscribed through iTunes) will be a pretty normal PG-13 episode. However, if you'd like to get rid of the beeps, well, you can download an uncensored version from this link right here.

Oh yeah, and I guess Megan and I fight about whether or not Madoka Magica: Rebellion was actually good. If you're sick and tired of us agreeing with each other all the time, well, you might want to check that out.

I'd like to thank all you listeners for sticking with us for this long. It is still somewhat baffling to me that more than, like, three people listen to this silly thing.

Bakacast – Draw Me Like One of Your French Plants

You think pollination was included in that genetic modification, too?

On this episode of Bakacast, we bring in Mellowship to help us talk about last week's shows (and, if I'm perfectly honest, to be our font of manga knowledge). He also proves quite useful in helping us decipher Mark the One's questions during our listener comments section, where we lament the fate of the Appleseed franchise and discuss what we'd like to see out of the Sailor Moon reboot.

Bakacast – Sidonia Throws Dark

The next episode will probably feature a genocide or something.

This week on Bakacast, JoJo's finally reminds us why we love that series so much, Sidonia kills a whole lot of people, and Mekaku makes us wonder what the hell is even going on anymore.
