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.

Bakacast #229 – MacGuffin Baby

Please ignore my very loose use of the term “MacGuffin.” It’s just a really fun word to say.

This episode of Bakacast is cut a bit short due to the holidays. We get through our reviews just fine, but we decide to leave the listener questions (which can easily add another hour to the proceedings) for later. Which of course means that the next listener questions segment will probably take two hours. Oh well…

And you think your family reunions are awkward.

On this episode of Bakacast, I’m finally not posting it horribly late in the week. See! I told you I could do it when I put my mind to it. Now I just need to put my mind to it more often.

Bakacast #227 – A Very Special Episode of Sword Art

I’m sure SAO will handle AIDs in the same careful, respectful fashion in which it handled gun trauma and rape.

Aside from certain wish-fulfillment shows tackling subjects they really have no business touching with a 50-foot pole (and the ever-present turd that is Psycho-Pass S2), this week was pretty solid. Or, I guess, it was definitely last week by now. Man, I’m getting really bad at this. I’ll have the next episode out in a more timely fashion, I swear.

No, really, I will. Stop laughing.

Bakacast #226 – Wizard Janitors

It’s the Discovery Channel’s newest reality TV show.

On this episode, Psycho-Pass still sucks and Parasyte finally has a couple episodes that aren’t fantastic; but that’s okay, because Garo is finally giving me what I want and being totally radical in the process. The only thing I’d change about episode 9 would be adding even more sick guitar riffs. It just wasn’t quite metal enough.
