Bakacast #322 – Finally Free from Our Orphan Prison

And unlike the main characters, all of us managed to survive.

Not only does this episode of Bakacast mark the end of the Winter 2017 season, but it also marks the end of me hosting these things on Libsyn. Starting at the next episode, we'll be part of the Audio Entropy podcast network. I will, however, still be posting shownotes like this on Project Haruhi in addition to Audio Entropy; and assuming an RSS feed merger works like I think it should, there shouldn't be a need to swap RSS subscriptions. Ultimately, this change will save me a whole lot of money each year and (hopefully) bring in more listeners for both Bakacast and the podcasts my friends are doing over at Audio Entropy.

Bakacast #321 – Tanya’s Consequence-Free Philosophy

Generally speaking, character development requires someone to experience hardship.

On this episode, we celebrate Rakugo and Maid Dragon's finales, give Ben and Larry a chance to discuss what they thought about March Comes In Like A Lion, and talk about a change coming to Bakacast in the near future.

This one probably can't fit inside an apartment.

Why yes, I've recently spent an entire day editing several podcasts. Is it that obvious?

I just want it to be over.

This episode is somehow just under 40 minutes long. No, I have no idea how we managed that either.

Bakacast #318 – Akko Must Never Be Cool

The balance of the universe depends on it.

On this shockingly short episode of Bakacast: Gundam tires us out, Little Witch gives us the Sucy episode we've been waiting for, Maid Dragon gets surprisingly emotional, and Youjo Senki continues to be not quite as good as we had hoped.

Bakacast #317 – Meloncide

Can we just erase Gallagher from existence and replace him with Kanna?

On this episode of Bakacast, Maid Dragon has its first dud segment, we start to suspect Iron-Blooded Orphans isn't as critical of pedophilia as it should be, and Youjo Senki shows signs of being just another military anime.

Bakacast #316 – Mad About Succubi

It's an important subject to me, okay?

No, I didn't make a typo. I intentionally skipped #315, because I have some of the audio, but Megan's track did not save properly. I might be able to salvage some of it to release at a later date, but until then I just wanted to edit and release the episodes I didn't have to do any editing wizardly for. Thus this episode, where Megan and I rant about the Demi-Chan's portrayal of the succubus character.

Bakacast #314 – A True Hero Arrives

In my opinion, us know-it-alls get a bad rap.

With this episode of Bakacast out the door, I have finally caught up to my recording backlog and can start working on editing some JoJo again. Hooray! This week, some shows improve, others continue to reveal their shortcomings, and some surpass expectations. Also, ACCA leads to the most heated disagreement we've had on Bakacast for a while...which pretty much amounts to me and Ben saying, "Your opinion makes no sense to me," to each other before moving on. That's right, you can always count on us for the compelling drama. Just like you can always count on me to find a way to talk about social justice, even when the context is monster girls.

Bakacast #313 – My Eyes Are Dying

You really have to see it in motion to appreciate it.

Now that the winter season has begun in earnest, we dig into what it has to offer us. Which is...a mixed bag, honestly. Some good, some dull, some bad. And then there's Hand Shakers, a show that must be watched to truly understand how thoroughly and magnificently terrible it is. I do my best to articulate the sights and sounds one experiences when subjected to Hand Shakers, but human language can only communicate so much. Please, watch Hand Shakers and understand my suffering.

Also that Maid Dragon show is a very early contender for surprise of 2017, so that's certainly something.
