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, I finally tap out on Made in Abyss, take the good with the bad in My Hero Academy, and continue to be baffled by The Reflection ending up being a show I look forward to even more than Rage of Bahamut.

On this episode of Bakacast, I treat myself for my birthday and have Luke review Brave Witches solo. I say I deserve it. Also, Fate/Apocrypha gets dumber, and Made in Abyss becomes more divisive.

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.

On this episode of Bakacast, Luke finally returns to the podcast to watch some bad anime with me. This time, I take a suggestion from loyal listener Dayriff and subject him to the first episode of Symphogear GX to find out if those first six minutes are all they're cracked up to be. In addition: Altair reveals what makes it worth watching, Fate suffers from a tragic lack of Mordred, and Ballroom e Youkoso gets far too ridiculous for me to tolerate.

On this episode of Bakacast, we introduce the new season of Hell Girl into our weekly rotation. This is the first time I've ever watched Hell Girl. I was not entirely prepared for Hell Girl. Other things I wasn't entirely prepared for: Princess Principal having a nearly flawless second episode, and Made in Abyss being a perfect mix of whimsical darkness.
