On this episode of Bakacast, we gush about the delightfully goofy (and surprisingly sincere) Planet With. In order to balance out the fun, though, we also dissect “In This Corner of the World”, a movie by Sunao Katabuchi that focuses on World War II’s effects on the daily lives of a family in Hiroshima.

On this episode of Bakacast, we cover the second part of Cartoon Network’s FLCL sequel—FLCL Alternative—and determine whether or not it’s better than Progressive (and if it adds anything to FLCL in general). We also take a look at “A Silent Voice,” one of many movies recommended to us by long-time listener FathomlessBlue.

On this episode of Bakacast, Ben and I take the opportunity to finish talking about Garo: Vanishing Line and Lupin III Part V: two shows we started a while ago and liked but never actually did full reviews for. Turns out they were both pretty good!

On this episode of JJBR, Luke, Ty, Ben and I spend a whole lot of time talkin’ ‘bout urine. Also: we prove that every plot element of JJBA is internally consistent and ruminate on the viability of a banana gun.

On this episode of JJBR, I bring in another cohost: my good friend Ty, who some of you may remember from Roll For Your Lives, the tabletop RPG podcast I did for a spell. We Bruno’s varied and unsettling use of zippers, extremely detailed face-punching, and falling in love with your enemy.

Just because Bakacast has switched to a different format doesn’t mean we’re abandoning JoJo’s reviews. We will never abandon JoJo’s reviews. Instead of putting it on the main show, though, I’m bringing JoJo’s Bizarre Rewatch back from hiatus, with Luke and Ben joining me as my cohosts. Please ignore all the episodes in between that we never covered on JJBR.
