So much murder.

Ben and Larry return with me to catch up with the shows airing this summer. Having weeded out some of the stuff we weren't interested in, we largely focus on 91, Arslan, Mob Psycho 100, and JoJo.

JoJo’s Bizarre Rewatch 05 – JoJo Punches Racism [EXPLICIT]

JJBA is a very serious and topical show.

Kevin comes back on this episode of JJBR, where we watch the final episode of Phantom Blood and the first episode of Battle Tendency. Other topics include: polyamory, coffin physics, no one appreciating Dustin's musical jokes, surprisingly topical commentary on American police, Joseph is a far more violent and flamboyant Sherlock Holmes, random cyberpunks, Erina as a badass grandma, and the Roundabout cue so good it made Luke leap out of bed and fistpump.

This time it's actually brief.

Yeah, that's right, I'm bringing the "Bakacast Briefs" branding back after its long hiatus. Even though our main show for this season is the JoJo Rewatch, I figured it'd be nice to get Larry and Ben on every few weeks to talk about the current shows. Since the structure if freeform and editing is dead-simple, it doesn't take much time from my schedule anyway. I was a little late with uploading this one, though (due to vacation), so expect the second part to show up next week.

Nobody on this podcast can say words properly.

This week on JJBR, we cover episodes 7 & 8, where main characters die, anvils are thrown, and Jonathon's conflict with Dio finally comes to an end. Other topics of discussion include: knife-vampire Gabe Newell, really specific prophecies, surviving long after your body is gone, Mad Max fashion statements, eating babies, Business Guile, Dio invents moe, brainstorming a horrifying fetish monstrosity, and a vampire named Jones.

Just gay as hell.

On this episode of JJBR, we admire Speedwagon's manly passion that can warm even the coldest of limbs, question Araki's grasp of European history, try to puzzle out the show's internal geography, congratulate Araki on his clever wordplay, and question Zeppeli's ability to think of alternate solutions to problems.

There's an entirely different show happening just out of frame.

On this episode of JJBR, we talk about how Erina won the hunk lottery, strange Italian men who sprinkle salt and/or pepper on their sandwiches, frogs with Ripple power, new and surprising uses for horses, and deadly crocodile clips.

We have Great Expectations for you, Johnathan.

Welcome to the first episode of JoJo's Bizarre Rewatch, hosted by myself and Megan! The JJBA newbies joining us on this adventure are Luke (who Bakacast listeners should already be familiar with), Jules (who I've already podcasted with on some episodes of Teenagers With Attitude), and Kevin (who is a player in my new Dungeon World campaign on Roll For Your Lives). While going over the first two episodes of the Phantom Blood arc, we cover such topics as: thematic color schemes, terrible parenting techniques, animal abuse, sick poses, the fanciest way to fall down, Charles Dickens' secret fetish, and skin sheathes. Also, Megan makes a joke so good that we're tempted to immediately stop the recording to end on the highest note possible.

You can't have him. I already called dibs.

On this episode of Bakacast, we finish off the spring stragglers and marvel at the idea that Flying Witch was not only the best show of the season but also basically perfect. We also do a quick roundup of the shows we haven't been reviewing weekly, such as Luluco, Macross Delta and Kuromukuro.

Bakacast #303 – Fast and the Furious with Tanks

"What if Vin Diesel was a moeblob?" is one of the questions that keeps me up at night.

On this episode of Bakacast, we bid farewell to Bakuon. You were an okay show. Gundam Unicorn and Flying Witch didn't air the week we recorded, so JoJo's, Hero Academy, and (unfortunately) Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress are the only shows we reviewed. Thankfully, we had the Girls Und Panzer movie around to fill the gap, and boy did it do a good job of that.

That's one way to motivate a teenage mecha pilot.

Bakuon continues to exist as a show that we neither hate nor love, Hero Academy continues to be totally rad, Flying Witch continues to be the best show this season, and Gundam Unicorn continues to be filled with angst.
