Episode 380 - You're Already Exploded

On this episode of Bakacast, we our minds boggle over the final episodes of Geneshaft. What was the point of all the DNA backstory? Isn’t it weird that there was basically no direct commentary on the weird gender dynamics? Did anyone actually know how they wanted the story to wrap up before the final episode? We may never know. Also, we watch the final Netflix Godzilla movie: The Planet Eater. Hey, Gen Urobuchi? Please stop.

On this episode of the rewatch, Giorno, Fugo, and Abbacchio have a fun field trip to the ruins of Pomepeii, where absolutely nothing could possibly go wrong.

JoJo's Bizarre Rewatch 5.1 - The Taste of Lies

Just because Bakacast has switched to a different format doesn’t mean we’re abandoning JoJo’s reviews. We will never abandon JoJo’s reviews. Instead of putting it on the main show, though, I’m bringing JoJo’s Bizarre Rewatch back from hiatus, with Luke and Ben joining me as my cohosts. Please ignore all the episodes in between that we never covered on JJBR.
