Okay? Okay.

On this episode of Bakacast, Ben takes the wheel because I wasn’t able to watch everything on time. I do, however, have things to say about One Punch Man, Owarimonogatari, and Perfect Insider, which are the truly the most important things in life. Also, Luke is back to actually talk about Aria AA this time!

Bakacast #277 – The Perfect Record

We don’t get many of these, so cherish them while they last.

This episode was originally going to come out days sooner, but then I got horribly, painfully sick with gastroenteritis! If you’re not sure what the hell that means, look it up. It’s fun. In short: I spent most of the weekend lying down in bed trying not to dehydrate. So, you know, not super conducive to podcast editing. I’m gonna try to get the episode we recorded last Thursday up before Christmas. I’m not sure if we’ll record another episode before Christmas, though, as the holiday schedules might not line up. If not, we’ll have another double-up episode like we did after Thanksgiving week.

Bakacast #276 – Surprise Harem Show

If there’s one thing I expect out of Gundam, it’s child brides.

We’re back from our Thanksgiving hiatus, and boy is there a lot of ground to cover. We keep the recording time pretty reasonable considering we had to double-up on shows, but Utawarerumono helped us out a bit by having not much going on. Instead, we spend most of our time praising Perfect Insider, arguing about Concrete Revolutio’s structure, and being mesmerized by Owarimonogatari’s background art.

Bakacast #275 – Paprika-esque

Like if Satoshi Kon was obsessed with Legos.

Instead of using this spot to summarize some points we make in the podcast, I’ll inform y’all that we did not record anything on Thanksgiving week, because it was Thanksgiving week. So we’ll be doubling up on episode reviews during the next recording. Also also: I’ve been thinking about the workload that goes into making these podcasts lately, and how it takes a lot of time away from other content I’d like to be creating more regularly (as well as negatively impacting my performance on this podcast). The initial idea I brought up to my cohosts was a hiatus for the winter season, but that’s only a temporary solution; and I believe we’ve landed on a better one. Or are at least adjacent to a better one. We’ll let you know what we’ve decided on as soon as we’ve actually decided on it.
