The more things change, the more Aldnoah Zero stays the same.

On this episode of Bakacast, Megan is finally back! Hooray! And she's here to give me a thorough verbal beating over my Yuri Kuma Arashi opinions...along with basically every listener, too, it seems. Also, we discuss the flood of new shows that occurred a couple weeks ago. Some of them are not going to last very long, certainly, but more are sticking around than I expected.

Bakacast #231 – Are You Okay, Ikuhara?

Do you need to talk about anything?

This is the calm before the storm, folks. The one week we have where we won't be inundated by new shows. Enjoy how relatively brief this episode is, because it ain't gonna last. Also, if you've ever wanted to hear Aaron getting mad about comedy preferences, this is the episode for you!

Oh, and it's kind of ironic that--in the episode where I apologize about poor audio quality of the previous episode--this episode has poor audio quality. Turns out I forgot to change the bitrate settings for recording, so it got recorded at a paltry 32kb/s. Whooooops.

Bakacast #230 – Shirou, You Idiot

Just let Rin and Saber do all the thinking.

It's the last Bakacast for the fall season, which means Bahamut is--sadly--over. It also means it's time to look back on the full breadth of some of these shows and reflect on some issues they had that weren't apparent at first (*cough*Amiragettingsidelined*cough*).

Bakacast #229 – MacGuffin Baby

Please ignore my very loose use of the term "MacGuffin." It's just a really fun word to say.

This episode of Bakacast is cut a bit short due to the holidays. We get through our reviews just fine, but we decide to leave the listener questions (which can easily add another hour to the proceedings) for later. Which of course means that the next listener questions segment will probably take two hours. Oh well...

And you think your family reunions are awkward.

On this episode of Bakacast, I'm finally not posting it horribly late in the week. See! I told you I could do it when I put my mind to it. Now I just need to put my mind to it more often.

Bakacast #227 – A Very Special Episode of Sword Art

Posted by Dustin

I'm sure SAO will handle AIDs in the same careful, respectful fashion in which it handled gun trauma and rape.

Aside from certain wish-fulfillment shows tackling subjects they really have no business touching with a 50-foot pole (and the ever-present turd that is Psycho-Pass S2), this week was pretty solid. Or, I guess, it was definitely last week by now. Man, I'm getting really bad at this. I'll have the next episode out in a more timely fashion, I swear.

No, really, I will. Stop laughing.

Bakacast #226 – Wizard Janitors

It's the Discovery Channel's newest reality TV show.

On this episode, Psycho-Pass still sucks and Parasyte finally has a couple episodes that aren't fantastic; but that's okay, because Garo is finally giving me what I want and being totally radical in the process. The only thing I'd change about episode 9 would be adding even more sick guitar riffs. It just wasn't quite metal enough.

He just makes you want to protect him from assassins, doesn't he?

There's...nothing really new to report here. Mushi-shi's still great. Psycho-Pass is still dumb as hell. Garo is still teasing us mercilessly. And I still feel kinda bad for liking Amagi Brilliant Park. There's not even anything funny to rant about with Sword Art Online. I feel so empty inside.

Bakacast #224 – Just 5 More Minutes, Mom

I have to find a save point first.

Just when I thought Sword Art Online wasn't going to bog down its new arc in clumsily-handled drama, it goes and proves me wrong. Hopefully it won't be quite as migraine-inducing as Sion's childhood trauma. That's not the end to this week's disappointment, either. Gundam finally wears out its welcome, which means I once again have no good mecha shows to watch this season. My only hope now is for Shingeki no Bahamut to somehow end with Favaro and Kaisar piloting giant, steel golems. You laugh, but Rita already has a pseudo-rocket-punch.

Bakacast #223 – Pocket Fish

Always keep a goldfish on hand in case of emergency.

So, this week is the week where we finally lose our patience with some shows. Gundam has one more shot to find its footing and become something that isn't mediocre. April Is Your Lie has failed to capture the attention of anyone besides Ben, and even he's not enthusiastic about all of us covering it. While Shirobako isn't bad (I actually think it's quite good), its style of humor just doesn't mesh well with me, which makes it painful to watch. And though Garo is still enjoyable enough for me to forgive its flaws, if it stays in its current holding pattern for much longer I might give it the boot.
