Bakacast #300 – The Budweiser of Feminism

Posted by Dustin

Watching Ice was the equivalent of ripping a bandaid off.

We finally made it to 300 episodes. I dread the day when we get to 500, mostly because I'm not sure what Aaron will do to try and top us watching Ice. I fear for my life. We do our normal review segments on this episode, too, of course; but let's be honest, you're all here for the anime that somehow made Luke more angry than anything I've made him watch so far.

Bakacast #299 – It’s Called SUPER LOVERS

Posted by Dustin

Normally only light novel titles give you that obvious of a warning sign.

It took a while, but I promised you that Luke would review SUPER LOVERS; and by golly did I get him to review SUPER LOVERS. He definitely didn't like it, but probably not for the reasons you might immediately suspect. After that, we take an Ice-inspired journey into Hulu's anime selection, have more arguments about Bakugo from My Hero Academy, continue to be delighted by Flying Witch, and reminisce about how much fun Lelouch was in Code Geass.

I'm pledging my fealty early before the purging starts.

Finally, my backlog is clear. I have cleansed it with the holy fire of Audacity. Now my dark work can finally begin...

And we review some anime, I guess. I didn't realize how much I missed Lelouch until I saw him in Akito the Exile.

However, they do not sparkle. They just murder.

On this episode of Bakacast, we discuss Hero Academy's cardboard cut-out villain and how Uraraka is better than everyone else; Kabaneri's strange use of bit characters; and how I might be a cat racist.

Also, thank you to Kenneth Alexander for the album art!

Oh right, the Bakuon dude does porn.

On this episode of Bakacast, Bakuon 4 and 5 give us the starkest contrast between two consecutive episodes that we've ever seen. Meanwhile, Gundam Thunderbolt remains consistently amazing and consistently sad.

Blood rituals are thicker than water.

On this episode of Bakacast, we run the full emotional gauntlet. Bakuon takes us to the highest of highs only for Macross Delta to drop us to the lowest of lows. On the plus side, Macross can't hurt us ever again, as we've decided to switch to Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. Unfortunately, Project Ice looms on the horizon...

Kill them all and focus on the side characters.

Why did this episode take so long to come out? Because I was buying a car a decade younger than my old one, which was slowly becoming a dying husk. This one actually has working AC, so I won't melt into a puddle on my way to work anymore.

Megan's back, so let's pose as a team.

Yeah, that's right. Megan is finally back on the podcast, which means I'm going to be blushing 1000% more often. It also means that--thanks to the giant list of shows we watched--this particular episode is back to the 2-hour length of yesteryear. If this fills you with terror and dread, don't worry, it won't last for long. If this makes you very happy, well, enjoy this horrendously long episode while you can< I guess.

What have turtles ever done to you, Araki?

With winter finally gone, JoJo's season has finally arrived, bringing with it another JoJo's. On this podcast, we watch JoJo's and talk about JoJo's. There are some other anime that aired, I guess, but they don't really matter.

Bakacast #291 – Everything Is Sad Now

Posted by Dustin

To be fair, it's been moderately sad for a while.

On this final episode of the 2016 Winter season, we have a sudden upgrade in audio quality! If you're wondering what brought this on, the answer is, "The much easier but lower quality method we were using previously no longer reliably works with Skype." So now everyone is individually recording their audio tracks in Audacity, and I'm stitching it all together. Hopefully this will end up making the podcast nicer to listen to.
