And only one of them is any good.

This Bakacast is really delayed, and I’m sorry about that. Life has been a bit hectic lately, particularly while I’m on the lookout for a new job. The next episode will likely be edited and up a couple days after this one, because I can’t stand having a backlog anymore. As for the podcast itself, on this episode we question the new direction Utawarerumono has taken, examine the very interesting but flawed portrayal of depression in Owarimonogatari, invoke Tomino in Concrete Revolutio, and actually have an argument for once when Noragami Aragoto affects Ben and me in two very different ways.

During listener questions, I mention many of the media critics I follow. Here are the links I promised to y’all can check them out.

Bakacast #272 – Testicle Physics

You knew this was gonna be the album art. It had to be.

This week on Bakacast, you get a whole lot of Cynical Dustin. In my defense, I feel like Utawarerumono’s bath scenes, Owarimonogatari’s do-nothing pacing, and…whatever the hell Noragami Aragoto is doing to Bishamon gave me plenty to be cynical about.

One Punch Man, however, continues to be perfect. I am convinced it will always be perfect (well, except for when it introduces certain characters I have heard things about).

Bakacast #271 – More Like a Nonja

Yeah, sure, Dustin, just reference a Wachowski movie that no one watched.

This week on Bakacast, Luke and I discuss an anime where girls play a card game that promises to grant them their deepest, darkest wishes. You know, like boning your twin brother. Meanwhile, Comet Lucifer has become too annoying to bother with, Utawarerumono introduces an awesome bird and a terrible princess, and Garo once again shows that Seimei is the best.

The past week has not been kind to my memory.

We’ve got another long Bakacast for you, as we tackle a huge list of shows and Aaron subjects us all to Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid. Remind me never to let Aaron convince me to watch anything ever again.

Bakacast #269 – Improper Seatbelt Handling

They definitely aren’t following OSHA regulations.

This ended up being a pretty jam-packed fall season. To the point where–if Heavy Object is the only show we drop–it’d take around 6 hours to watch everything. That’s…a little insane, so we’ll probably end up making cuts to shows that aren’t bad but also aren’t quite interesting enough. So I apologize in advance if I make an executive decision to stop reviewing your favorite show; but in my defense, I would probably go insane doing this every week.

Also, during listener questions I end up rambling about the various sources I get my remixes from. Some of them come from me discovering them randomly through social media channels, but I also list off a few sources I regularly turn to for ending music. For convenience sake, those sources are: various Youtube channels I follow (particularly shoopfex, Triple-Q and Botanic Sage), OCRemix, and MashupYourBootz.

Also also, please watch the best AMV I’ve seen in my life. No, seriously, it’s incredible.
