Bakacast #235 – Being Luke is Suffering

Posted by Dustin

I'm just sharing the pain.

Let no one say I don't listen to your suggestions, audience. You asked for reviews of bad anime, and you're getting them. Just...not from me. You see, the benefit of having close friends is that you can convince them to subject themselves to terrible things for your amusement. This is how Aaron has always used me, and now I'm using Luke for the same purpose. Every week, I'll assign Luke an anime to review. Because I am a merciful person, I have allowed him to watch as many or as few episodes of the show as he desires. Even a single episode would be good enough. I did this because I know Luke's willpower and devotion to doing stupid things for podcasts are both strong. This week, he watched four episodes of Kantai Collection for everyone's amusement.

You're welcome.

Bakacast #234 – We Really Like Succubi

In our defense, there's a lot to like.

We're once again back to business as usual here on Bakacast. Parasyte is still creepy, Yuri Kuma is still baffling (though mildly less than usual this week), the Magical Boys are still delightfully queer, Durarara is still...Durarara, and Maria is still prompting us to consider our place in society and how to enact lasting change. Also, I attempt to sell Megan on Yatterman Night by explaining how adorable Honorable Oda is.

Bakacast #233 – PAX South 2015 Edition

Are you amazed that I actually got out of my house for once? You probably should be.

This episode of Bakacast was recorded in a San Antonio hotel that my friend Luke and I were staying at for PAX South. You'll hear Luke chime in occasionally to give his thoughts on Sailor Moon and why witches shouldn't be virgins. Other than that, it's a pretty normal week for us. So far, the shows have maintained the same level of quality from the previous two weeks, so it seems doubtful that we'll be dropping anything else. I will continue to complain about Yuri Bear Storm, though.

Bakacast #232 – Aldnoah’s Less Than Zero

The more things change, the more Aldnoah Zero stays the same.

On this episode of Bakacast, Megan is finally back! Hooray! And she's here to give me a thorough verbal beating over my Yuri Kuma Arashi opinions...along with basically every listener, too, it seems. Also, we discuss the flood of new shows that occurred a couple weeks ago. Some of them are not going to last very long, certainly, but more are sticking around than I expected.

Bakacast #231 – Are You Okay, Ikuhara?

Do you need to talk about anything?

This is the calm before the storm, folks. The one week we have where we won't be inundated by new shows. Enjoy how relatively brief this episode is, because it ain't gonna last. Also, if you've ever wanted to hear Aaron getting mad about comedy preferences, this is the episode for you!

Oh, and it's kind of ironic that--in the episode where I apologize about poor audio quality of the previous episode--this episode has poor audio quality. Turns out I forgot to change the bitrate settings for recording, so it got recorded at a paltry 32kb/s. Whooooops.

Just let Rin and Saber do all the thinking.

It's the last Bakacast for the fall season, which means Bahamut is--sadly--over. It also means it's time to look back on the full breadth of some of these shows and reflect on some issues they had that weren't apparent at first (*cough*Amiragettingsidelined*cough*).

Please ignore my very loose use of the term "MacGuffin." It's just a really fun word to say.

This episode of Bakacast is cut a bit short due to the holidays. We get through our reviews just fine, but we decide to leave the listener questions (which can easily add another hour to the proceedings) for later. Which of course means that the next listener questions segment will probably take two hours. Oh well...

On this episode of Bakacast, I'm finally not posting it horribly late in the week. See! I told you I could do it when I put my mind to it. Now I just need to put my mind to it more often.

Bakacast #227 – A Very Special Episode of Sword Art

Posted by Dustin

I'm sure SAO will handle AIDs in the same careful, respectful fashion in which it handled gun trauma and rape.

Aside from certain wish-fulfillment shows tackling subjects they really have no business touching with a 50-foot pole (and the ever-present turd that is Psycho-Pass S2), this week was pretty solid. Or, I guess, it was definitely last week by now. Man, I'm getting really bad at this. I'll have the next episode out in a more timely fashion, I swear.

No, really, I will. Stop laughing.

Bakacast #226 – Wizard Janitors

It's the Discovery Channel's newest reality TV show.

On this episode, Psycho-Pass still sucks and Parasyte finally has a couple episodes that aren't fantastic; but that's okay, because Garo is finally giving me what I want and being totally radical in the process. The only thing I'd change about episode 9 would be adding even more sick guitar riffs. It just wasn't quite metal enough.
