You can't have him. I already called dibs.

On this episode of Bakacast, we finish off the spring stragglers and marvel at the idea that Flying Witch was not only the best show of the season but also basically perfect. We also do a quick roundup of the shows we haven't been reviewing weekly, such as Luluco, Macross Delta and Kuromukuro.

"What if Vin Diesel was a moeblob?" is one of the questions that keeps me up at night.

On this episode of Bakacast, we bid farewell to Bakuon. You were an okay show. Gundam Unicorn and Flying Witch didn't air the week we recorded, so JoJo's, Hero Academy, and (unfortunately) Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress are the only shows we reviewed. Thankfully, we had the Girls Und Panzer movie around to fill the gap, and boy did it do a good job of that.

That's one way to motivate a teenage mecha pilot.

Bakuon continues to exist as a show that we neither hate nor love, Hero Academy continues to be totally rad, Flying Witch continues to be the best show this season, and Gundam Unicorn continues to be filled with angst.

Bakacast #301 – Fangs for the Memories

Larry wins the Pun Olympics.

On this episode of Bakacast, I debut our new opening song composed by Mitchell Dill. It's not the final version, but I figured it'd be fun to switch things up post-episode-300. Also, I reveal my plans for what the next season will bring. Basically, I'll be taking a brief hiatus from the normal Bakacast schedule (since I've been watching, recording and editing for 6 years straight now). Instead of doing weekly reviews, I'll instead be going through the first two arcs of JoJo's with three people who've never watched the show before (plus Megan). These episodes will go up in place of the weekly episodes we'd normally put up for the summer season, and we'll return to the normal Bakacast stuff when the fall season starts.

Now, this doesn't mean you won't get ANY summer reviews from us. Whether it takes the form of posts on this blog or short, additional recordings with Ben and Larry every three weeks or so, we'll still be giving our thoughts on whatever summer shows we decided to watch.

Bakacast #300 – The Budweiser of Feminism

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...
