Episode 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.

Episode 361 - Dragon Vore Z

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.

Episode 345 - Lewd Hand-Holding

On this episode of Bakacast, we ring in the strangely anti-climatic end Princess Principal. Also, we spend a good chunk of time contrasting the how poorly Rage of Bahamut attempts to handle moral ambiguity with how well Shoukaku no Altair approaches similar topics. Also, Ben and I finally get around to talking in-depth about the strengths and weakness of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable.

Episode 344 - More Like Crapula

On this episode of Bakacast, we mock Fate/Apocrypha's portrayal of Dracula, which may be one of the lamest in the history of vampire media. Meanwhile, Altair and Reflection continue to impress while Virgin Soul continues to hurt my soul. Oh yeah, and we talk about the upcoming fall shows for far too long.

Episode 337 - Suplex the Space Shuttle

On this episode of Bakacast, Luke finally returns to the podcast to watch some bad anime with me. This time, I take a suggestion from loyal listener Dayriff and subject him to the first episode of Symphogear GX to find out if those first six minutes are all they're cracked up to be. In addition: Altair reveals what makes it worth watching, Fate suffers from a tragic lack of Mordred, and Ballroom e Youkoso gets far too ridiculous for me to tolerate.

Episode 336 - Double Super Secret Princess Friendship Robot

On this episode of Bakacast, we introduce the new season of Hell Girl into our weekly rotation. This is the first time I've ever watched Hell Girl. I was not entirely prepared for Hell Girl. Other things I wasn't entirely prepared for: Princess Principal having a nearly flawless second episode, and Made in Abyss being a perfect mix of whimsical darkness.

Episode 335 - Teen Girl Ghost Rider

On this episode of Bakacast, I manage to figure out and break down my mixed feelings on Kakegurui, we all express our disappointment in Katsugeki Touken Ranbu (and our surprise that the debut episode of Princess Principal was actually quite solid), and we dissect why Vatican MIracle Examiner's first episode felt so dang awkward.
