Episode 29: Breadly Revenge

Kicking off this episode filled with revenge plots, demonic possessions, political intrigue and…bread, John is delivering his review of the not so slightly mean-spirited romcom Masamune-kun’s Revenge. Then CC explains why watching both seasons of Blue Exorcist is not an easily achievable flawless viewing experience. Last but not least, the gang discusses why ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept. is a slow but good burn.
