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.

About Dustin

Dustin (aka Stilts) enjoys playing and yelling at video games, especially RPGs. He also likes super robot shows... the more outrageous the plot, the better!

    A few comments:

    1. On Princess Principal – Dustin, you were saying you didn’t see how Dorothy could get soppy over her father ‘really loving her’ when he hadn’t done much to earn forgiveness. I think that if you asked a lot of abuse victims, they could hold “he was a horrible abusive asshole” and “he really loved me” in their mind at the same time and believe both to be true. Dorothy has escaped her father and no longer fears his abuse, so she’s free to remember the part of him that loved her. Not because he has earned her forgiveness, but because it makes her feel good to remember that part of him rather than dwelling on his abuse.

    2. Listening to you talk about Ougi in Owarimonogatari without having seen parts 2 and 3 was HILARIOUS. I think Ougi’s true nature is the single best twist the series ever pulled, and I can’t wait to hear you discuss it. Ougi told us the truth in every appearance, in her catch phrase:

    “I don’t know anything. You know things, Araragi-sempai.”

    3. On Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul I’m up though episode #22 as I right this. I saw on twitter that Dustin was pretty mad about Nina sparing the king. I’ll say this, I definitely think that decision had consequences.
