On this episode of Bakacast, we review the short but frantic (and highly self-indulgent) newish show from Trigger: Space Patrol Luluco. Is it a fun-filled celebration of Triggers’ best qualities, or an exhausting reminder of all their worst tendencies? Opinions are…mixed. We really wanted an excuse to say “Lu” some more, though, so we also reviewed Lu Over the Wall, another wildly entertaining and imaginative film from director Masaaki Yuasa.

On this episode of JJBR, we cover the profoundly problematic Baby Face: a Stand with a really cool power and design, but a shockingly awful, uh, “creation” sequence. On the bright side, Giorno figures out a body-horror way to heal people, which is really what we were all waiting for. Also: ice powers are terrifying.

On this episode of Bakacast, we our minds boggle over the final episodes of Geneshaft. What was the point of all the DNA backstory? Isn’t it weird that there was basically no direct commentary on the weird gender dynamics? Did anyone actually know how they wanted the story to wrap up before the final episode? We may never know. Also, we watch the final Netflix Godzilla movie: The Planet Eater. Hey, Gen Urobuchi? Please stop.

On this episode of JJBR, Bucciarati faces the Grateful Dead and Beach Boy in a life-or-death team train battle. Can his zipper powers defeat an aging virus and a fish hook what can dive under your skin and tear your heart up? Yes, he definitely can. Of course he can. But not before Mista totally dies. it sure is a shame we’ll never see Mista ever again.

On this episode of Bakacast, we review the first 7 episode of Geneshaft, a very weird show about DNA, buggy mecha, and using one song over and over again because it’s the only memorable one you have. We also talk about Fireworks, the latest movie produced by Shaft and directed by Akiyuki Simbo. So it should be great, right? We’ve loved a lot of their stuff, yeah? Well, things a little more tricky this time.

On this episode of Bakacast, we review Night is Short, Walk on Girl, the absolutely delightful and visually arresting movie directed by Masaaki Yuasa, who is probably most famous for his work on Tatami Galaxy, Ping Pong, and (more recently) Devilman Crybaby. We also finish the second half of Planet With, giving our thoughts on how well the two story arcs fit together and dissecting the interesting things it has to say about conflict, justice, and forgiveness.

On this episode of the rewatch, Giorno, Fugo, and Abbacchio have a fun field trip to the ruins of Pomepeii, where absolutely nothing could possibly go wrong. We discuss: the ambiguous physics of Mirror Worlds, Abbacchio being a lame edgelord, the evolution of Fugo’s fashion choices, and whether or not all this weirdness is starting to get to our good boy Giorno.

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 JJBR, we find out that you can definitely make a shrinking episode that Luke will not care about. The trick is to make your antagonist very lame and include EXTREMELY problematic gay representation.
