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.

On this episode of Bakacast, we ring in the strangely anti-climatic end Princess Principal. Also, we spend a good chunk of time contrasting the how poorly Rage of Bahamut attempts to handle moral ambiguity with how well Shoukaku no Altair approaches similar topics. Also, Ben and I finally get around to talking in-depth about the strengths and weakness of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable.

On this episode of Bakacast, we mock Fate/Apocrypha’s portrayal of Dracula, which may be one of the lamest in the history of vampire media. Meanwhile, Altair and Reflection continue to impress while Virgin Soul continues to hurt my soul. Oh yeah, and we talk about the upcoming fall shows for far too long.

On this episode of Bakacast, I finally tap out on Made in Abyss, take the good with the bad in My Hero Academy, and continue to be baffled by The Reflection ending up being a show I look forward to even more than Rage of Bahamut.

On this episode of Bakacast, I treat myself for my birthday and have Luke review Brave Witches solo. I say I deserve it. Also, Fate/Apocrypha gets dumber, and Made in Abyss becomes more divisive.
