Episode 19: Trials and Tortured Souls

Two video game related series and an unexpected sequel provide the discussion material for this episode. CC takes the lead by ranting on why Ace Attorney is a subpar adaption of the popular Capcom franchise. On the other side of the coin, John weighs in on how Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Academy manages to succeed on all levels as a great cross-media experience. Closing out the show is CC’s review of D.Gray-man Hallow, a flawed sequel to a more than 8 year old show, that is nonetheless worth checking out.
