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.

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.
