On this episode of Bakacast, we start off with a listener question that tasks us with deciding Netflix's anime production plans that prompts us to dig deep for both obvious and obscure choices. We also add Inuyashiki to our watch list, a show that has two very strong intro episodes but still gives us a little pause due to, you know, it being written by Hiroya Oku, the dude who also made the infamous Gantz. Meanwhile, Garo impresses, Whales disappoint, and Kino's Journey sparks a discussion about the value of different adaptation styles.

On this episode of Bakacast, we ring in the strangely anti-climatic end Princess Principal. Also, we spend a good chunk of time contrasting the how poorly Rage of Bahamut attempts to handle moral ambiguity with how well Shoukaku no Altair approaches similar topics. Also, Ben and I finally get around to talking in-depth about the strengths and weakness of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable.

On this episode of Bakacast, we mock Fate/Apocrypha's portrayal of Dracula, which may be one of the lamest in the history of vampire media. Meanwhile, Altair and Reflection continue to impress while Virgin Soul continues to hurt my soul. Oh yeah, and we talk about the upcoming fall shows for far too long.

For this episode of Bakacast, Luke and I watched My Girlfriend Is A Gal, and now we both want to destroy all anime forever. Thankfully, before we can put our plans into action, my cohosts remind me that anime can occasionally be good by reviewing  Princess Principal and My Hero Academy.

We take a break from our regularly scheduled (as much as this podcast does have a schedule) Bakacast to bring you an episode where Ben and I discuss parts 2 & 3 of the Kizumonogatari movies, how well they mesh with Part 1, and strengths and weaknesses of the Monogatari series as a whole. Also: how Hanekawa is seriously underrated.
