At least it was interesting.

We finish off the last of the fall season shows and look back on this year of anime by handing out some awards to our favorite stuff. In addition to the typical Anime of the Year award, we had some extra categories, too: Best Male and Female Characters, Best Soundtrack (with Best OP/ED added at the last minute), Best Style, Biggest Disappointment, and Biggest Surprise.

That's a rarity these days.

As some of our fall shows reach their conclusions, we reflect on what they did right, what they did wrong, and what a possible continuation might mean for them. Also, Ben takes this opportunity to talk about some shows he's been watching that we haven't been covering on the podcast.

Bakacast #306 – Where The Gundams At?

In outer space, apparently.

Due to scheduling difficulties and life interfering, we were forced to skip a few weeks of recording. So of course the logical thing to do was to recap, like, four episodes of each series we're watching, because we're a group of people who make great life choices. Long story short: Drifters loses its appeal but everything else stays pretty much on course. Overall this has been a pretty impressive season; and judging by the what I'm seeing for winter, we're about to face a pretty steep drop in watchable shows.

Also, there was a bit of an unavoidable technical problem with this episode. Megan's computer fan caused a noticeable high-pitched buzz in the recording, but one can't simply turn off a computer fan (it tends to end badly for the computer). I did my best to remove as much as I could, but it will likely still be noticeably when she talks. I apologize for any bother this causes.

Bakacast #305 – The Red-Head Corollary

Also falls under the "Anime Witch Hypothesis."

So we're back with normal episodes of Bakacast. Yes, I know, JoJo's Bizarre Rewatch isn't finished yet. Scheduling issues made that basically impossible to do before the fall season started; and there's such good shows airing right now that it would be a shame to delay talking about them until JJBR ended. So instead I'll be attempting to stagger the production of both podcasts. Will it work out? Who knows! Life is chaos!

JoJo’s Bizarre Rewatch Episode 07 – Cows: The Ultimate Fetish [EXPLICIT]

Yeah, this podcast goes some places.

In addition to episodes 13 & 14 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, we also cover: Nazis by way of Hogan's Heroes, the greatest spaghetti duel, mind control via makeouts, the injustice of Queen not being referenced way earlier than they actually are, the only kink none of us like, living with only half your body, fun things to do with pie, and succubus shaming.

Please note that the [EXPLICIT] tag is not a joke. Assume every episode of JoJo's Bizarre Rewatch contains R-rated language and content.

Ganbatte, Joseph-san.

On this episode of JJBR, we only have half an episode to give you due to Luke's audio getting corrupted. In a weird way, though, we were lucky Luke had to leave after the first half; otherwise I wouldn't have anything to show for the recording. With what I could salvage, we talk about such things as: sympathizing with Joseph's desire to be pretty, Araki's wide variety of murder styles, and the ethical concerns of having your protagonist admire a Nazi's bravery.
