On this episode of Bakacast, we start the show with our Anime of the Year 2017 categories before getting to the very last reviews of the winter season.

On this episode of Bakacast, we finish out MMO Junkie and Juni Taisen, two shows that had stronger beginnings than they did endings. Also we do our best not to fall asleep while reviewing, as we recorded late on Christmas Eve and we were all a little sleepy.Read More

On this episode of Bakacast, we make up for the shows we've dropped by adding a couple more to the list. For our first addition, we spend some time talking about both the beauty and existential dread of Land of the Lustrous (arguably the best-looking CG anime so far).

We also add Inuyashiki to our watch list, a show that has two very strong intro episodes but still gives us a little pause due to, you know, it being written by Hiroya Oku, the dude who also made the infamous Gantz. Meanwhile, Garo impresses, Whales disappoint, and Kino's Journey sparks a discussion about the value of different adaptation styles.Read More
On this episode of Bakacast, we discuss The Reflection's bizarre ending, how even a badass blonde vampire can't save UQ Holder, what Blood Blockade's directorial change means for its new season, and some strong opening episodes from Garo, Kino and Magus' Bride.Read More
