Bakacast – The Longest Recap

Posted by Dustin

We've been adrift for 3 years with no sign of substantial, original content. Send help.

As you might have guessed, this week we review the Star Driver movie. Our reactions are not what you'd describe as "kind." Hopefully the first Persona 3 movie won't create a hat-trick of disappointment.

On the other hand, the rest of the shows that haven't been culled yet leave us with plenty to gush (and speculate) about.

Oh, and if you'd like to hear me and some other dudes talk about video games (and curse a lot), you can follow my other podcast: Anime is for Jurps. Just to warn you, though, we're following the "record whenever we happen to feel like it" schedule for that podcast.

Bakacast – Araki Hates Dogs

Would you like to talk about your issues, Araki? We're here for you, dude.

Mellowship is back from his D&D convention, so I decide to bring back the What'cha Been Doin' segment to talk about Fourth Edition shenanigans. And also Drakengard 3.

Meanwhile, in the reviews section, we finally give up on Captain Earth and Mekaku City Actors; but we at least take solace in the fact that every other show is stronger than ever. We close out the show by looking over next season's offerings and making mostly ill-informed, snap judgments.

Bakacast – The 200th Episode

Oh God, we really did it. We've actually made 200 of these stupid things.

In celebration, I've decided to do something special. The file that will appear in the RSS feed (and automatically download if you're subscribed through iTunes) will be a pretty normal PG-13 episode. However, if you'd like to get rid of the beeps, well, you can download an uncensored version from this link right here.

Oh yeah, and I guess Megan and I fight about whether or not Madoka Magica: Rebellion was actually good. If you're sick and tired of us agreeing with each other all the time, well, you might want to check that out.

I'd like to thank all you listeners for sticking with us for this long. It is still somewhat baffling to me that more than, like, three people listen to this silly thing.

Bakacast – Draw Me Like One of Your French Plants

You think pollination was included in that genetic modification, too?

On this episode of Bakacast, we bring in Mellowship to help us talk about last week's shows (and, if I'm perfectly honest, to be our font of manga knowledge). He also proves quite useful in helping us decipher Mark the One's questions during our listener comments section, where we lament the fate of the Appleseed franchise and discuss what we'd like to see out of the Sailor Moon reboot.

Bakacast – Sidonia Throws Dark

The next episode will probably feature a genocide or something.

This week on Bakacast, JoJo's finally reminds us why we love that series so much, Sidonia kills a whole lot of people, and Mekaku makes us wonder what the hell is even going on anymore.

Brendan Fraser can probably help with that.

On this episode of Bakacast, we learn that the only shows that can continually impress are Mushi-shi and LoGH. Everything else is slightly less than perfect. On the plus side, Captain Earth is finally going somewhere.

Also, if you're interested in the tabletop system I plugged in the intro segment, you can find it right here. As someone who has used the [%] system as both a player and a GM, I highly recommend it.

I guess I have Ene-fascination now.

After forgetting it the previous week, Larry and I catch up on the first two episodes of Ping Pong. Also, I decide to listen to our comments section (for once in my life) and check out Mekaku City Actors. Consider me pleasantly surprised.

See also: CGI animation. *rimshot*

This week, Knights of Sidonia proves to be well worth enduring its unfortunate animation quality, and JoJo's reminds us that, oh, yeah, this series gets pretty violent.

Of course, you probably knew that already.

A new season is upon us, and it has blessed us with Mushi-shi and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure at the same time. Oh, and also another mecha show by BONES and the Star Driver staff. Almost all my wishes are coming true.

We await your resurrection.

So yeah, I guess the winter season ended a while ago. If you can manage to pry yourselves away from JoJo (a difficult proposition, I know), you'll find our thoughts on the various endings and our overall series reviews. Also: why we should always trust fathomlessblue's warnings.
