Episode 63: Shitbags like You and Me

In an episode filled with bad people, CC gets things going by tackling the third season of Overlord and explains why the interesting approach of making the villain of the series the main character didn’t work out as well this time as it did in the previous seasons. After that the hosts unleash their combined game brains and talk about the many ludicrous adventures the main protagonist of Chio’s School Road experiences on the daily way to her temple of education.
