Bakacast – Nobunaga the Dull

Space Julius Caesar is completely wasted on this show.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Back when we first started Bakacast, I had been manually editing and uploading an XML doc to Project Haruhi's server, which Feedburner would then turn into an RSS feed. I am really getting sick of doing this. So as of this episode, I'm having Feedburner target the XML file that Libsyn automatically creates whenever I publish a podcast. This shouldn't change anything about recent podcasts, though older ones will lose the "clever" subtitles and descriptions I gave them (until I update those fields in their Libsyn entries). Also, since the only RSS URL I give out is the Feedburner one, no one should have to resubscribe to a different feed. You might see duplicated episodes in iTunes, though (I've had this happen to me for other podcasts I listen to). If anything straight-up breaks for you, let me know via comment or e-mail.

So you know all those shows we thought would at least be decent enough to keep watching?

Turns out almost none of them are.

Bakacast – Everything’s Coming Up Yang

How dreamy is Yang? So dreamy.

We don't review quite as many shows this time (partly due to dropping things and partly due to me straight-up not having enough time); but we still manage to clock in at about two hours, because we're terrible at time management. Also, we talk about the Mushi-shi OVA, which makes it one of the few OVAs we've actually reviewed in a timely fashion.

Oh, and Megan and I talk about a video game: Gone Home. We totally spoil it, so you should probably skip ahead (or just buy it already) if you haven't played it yet.

I hope you like my voice, because you're gonna get a lot of it.

On this episode, we add a handful of the shows that aired on the second week of the winter season. Or, more specifically, I watched them; because hey, why not? Turns out they mostly weren't worth the effort. On the upside, I watched Hamatora, which was a hell of a thing.

Bakacast – Arthur, King of Space

On a scale of ridiculousness that goes from Mushi-shi to Aquarion EVOL, Nobunaga the Fool is approximately equal to a Star Driver.

Not a whole lot of winter shows had aired when we recorded this, but we at least got off to a fairly strong start with the few shows we were able to watch. In a completely unexpected twist, even Noragami was fairly good. However, in a NOT completely unexpected twist, Nobunagun wasn't really worth the 24 minutes it took to watch.

Bakacast – Stop Being Tsundere

Hey, happy Five-Days-After-New-Year, everybody!

I come bearing two podcast gifts. The first is this episodes, obviously, where Larry and I give our final judgements on the anime that's finished this season. Plus, we choose our personal anime of the year.

The second podcast is one I recently started with a friend of mine from the Penny Arcade forums. It's called Anime is for Jurps. I'm hosting it off-site and on a separate RSS feed for two reasons: one) neither of us is 100% certain we'll manage to make it a regular thing and two) we swear a lot. When Larry started Project Haruhi, he wanted to keep it PG-13. I intend to respect that wish (the few times I've let R-rated cursing slip through into Bakacast were accidents resulting from laziness), so I don't want our explicit language to get mixed into the same feed as Bakacast.

Oh, and this video might be helpful for understanding the title.

Hey, Merry Christmas, everybody!

On this episode, Larry and I celebrate the holidays by handing out high scores like stocking stuffers. Except to Arpreggio of Blue Steel. That show gets coal.

Also, we finally review the second episode of GITS Arise. Spoilers: it's pretty radical.

Bakacast – Kill La Kindergarten

See? Now that real life isn't constantly intruding I can actually get stuff done. It's not just that I'm lazy (though that certainly plays a role).

On this episode of Bakacast, I continue my solo reviews of Monogatari, Megan and I gush about how great Satsuki in Kill La Kill is, and both Arpeggio and Galilei Donna descend further into insanity.

However, I somehow forgot to do a review of Kyousougiga 8, largely because I'm the only one who watched it. I'll review it and episode 9 together on the next episode. Sorry!

With Larry still recovering from surgery, Megan and I blast through all the episodes that have aired since our last podcast.

Or, more accurately, I give Megan a bunch of plot summaries for her to be boggled by, and then we tag-team Arpeggio of Blue Steel into the dirt.

Bakacast – What Is This Show?

It's been a hell of a couple weeks here at Bakacast.

All three of us have had a lot on our plates, which meant the podcast had to take a back-seat for a bit. Hopefully our lives will settle down soon so we can get back to recording an releasing on a tighter schedule. Until then, please forgive us for being not so timely.
