In a way, having belated season previews is almost better, because it’s much easier to see how very confidently wrong our predictions were, which is much more entertaining than being correct all the time.

Hey, it’s the first episode we recorded after my hard drive died! Are we gonna cover the anime episodes that we talked about on those lost episodes? Absolutely not. I’m certain that would take a good year off my life if I attempted it. So yeah, we’re just gonna start our Fall 2019 reviews smack dab in the middle of the season.

Bakacast #365 – My Cyberpunk Girlfriend

I was hoping–deep in my heart–that someday anime would give me more female character designs that looked like the ones in 80’s/90’s sci-fi, like Bubblegum Crisis, Dirty Pair and Outlaw Star. I just never expected an FLCL sequel to give me what I wanted. Her name is Julia Jinyu, and I love her so much.

Look, I get that Steins;Gate means well. Ruka is consistently portrayed as one of the most sensible people on the show. But also, stop saying Ruka is a man, dang it! She’s a girl, and I will die on this hill.

On this episode of Bakacast, our fears about the long-awaited Full Metal Panic sequel crashing and burning are put to rest, Hinamatsuri takes a goofy premise and turns it into something truly delightful, and Hisone to Masotan tricks us all into liking a show about vore. I am not even exaggerating.
