Bakacast – Punch to the Face

I apologize for the occasional audio glitches in this episode. Jon was too tired from his job to record, and I was at my parents’ house, so I had to use a five-year-old laptop to record this week’s podcast. I’ve done this a couple times before, but I guess the laptop chose this time to turn into cybernetic molasses. I was able to fix the desync issues that appeared, but there was nothing I could do about the “clipping” of sentences.

Anyway, we have a pretty normal review segment this week, with Hanasaku Iroha continuing to be a bizarre mixture of bad and good, Steins;Gate stumbling toward its ending, Sacred Seven defeating even my tolerance for Sunrise stupidity, Bunny Drop being amazing, No. 6 finally going somewhere with its plot, Dantalian having troubling implications about gender, and Penguindrum convincing some of my co-hosts to come over to my Anti-Ringo brigade.

Also we discuss the scientific method in relation to My Little Pony. Seriously.

We cover:

  • 2:51 – Hanasku Iroha #20
  • 7:06 – Steins;Gate #20
  • 14:38 – Sacred Seven #7
  • 18:57 – Ikoku Meiru no Croisee #7
  • 26:17 – Bunny Drop #7
  • 35:19 – No. 6 #7
  • 42:59 – Dantalian no Shoka #5 & 6
  • 51:27 – Mawaru Penguindrum #6
  • 58:22 – My Little Pony #15 & 16
  • 1:12:38 – Listener questions

I actually did miss one listener question, so I’ll be sure to get to it on the next episode. Speaking of the next podcast, we’ll be reviewing the Madhouse film everyone’s been hyped for: Redline. So look forward to that.

As always, if you would like to submit listener questions for a future episode, you can email them to bakacast[at], @reply them to Project Haruhi’s Twitter account using the hashtag #bakacast, or leave them in the comments below.
