For this episode of Bakacast, Luke and I watched My Girlfriend Is A Gal, and now we both want to destroy all anime forever. Thankfully, before we can put our plans into action, my cohosts remind me that anime can occasionally be good by reviewing  Princess Principal and My Hero Academy.

We take a break from our regularly scheduled (as much as this podcast does have a schedule) Bakacast to bring you an episode where Ben and I discuss parts 2 & 3 of the Kizumonogatari movies, how well they mesh with Part 1, and strengths and weaknesses of the Monogatari series as a whole. Also: how Hanekawa is seriously underrated.

On this episode of Bakacast, Mordred chases a cat around in Fate/Apocrypha, so nothing else really matters. Especially not Love Tyrant. Please email listener questions to bakacast[at]projectharuhi.net or leave them in the comments below.

Bakacast #337 – Suplex the Space Shuttle

On this episode of Bakacast, Luke finally returns to the podcast to watch some bad anime with me. This time, I take a suggestion from loyal listener Dayriff and subject him to the first episode of Symphogear GX to find out if those first six minutes are all they're cracked up to be. In addition: Altair reveals what makes it worth watching, Fate suffers from a tragic lack of Mordred, and Ballroom e Youkoso gets far too ridiculous for me to tolerate.

On this episode of Bakacast, we introduce the new season of Hell Girl into our weekly rotation. This is the first time I've ever watched Hell Girl. I was not entirely prepared for Hell Girl. Other things I wasn't entirely prepared for: Princess Principal having a nearly flawless second episode, and Made in Abyss being a perfect mix of whimsical darkness.

On this episode of Bakacast, I manage to figure out and break down my mixed feelings on Kakegurui, we all express our disappointment in Katsugeki Touken Ranbu (and our surprise that the debut episode of Princess Principal was actually quite solid), and we dissect why Vatican MIracle Examiner's first episode felt so dang awkward.

On this episode of Bakacast, Seikaisuru Kado finally ends, and boy were we not prepared for what the ending had in store for us. After boggling at the finale for a while, we get into the first new episodes of the summer 2017 season, which include crazy-faces, magic robots, and a Fate/Whatever intro episode that's actually exciting for once.

All good things must come to an end, even Little Witch Academia and Eccentric Family. We bid farewell to these to excellent shows the only way we know how: by analyzing them with far too much depth.

On this episode of Bakacast, Aaron, Ben and I discuss the full implications of Seikaisuru Kado going completely buck wild and what it maybe should have payed more attention to. Also, I propose my theory for an alternate reading of Little Witch's themes, Rage of Bahamut gives us one of the few tragic-backstory flashbacks I've seen done well in anime, and Ben and I break down the highs and lows of Gundam Thunderbolt's seventh episode.
