Episode 34: Nicked Swords

Tortured by allergies, but nevertheless ready to get dangerous, the gang is going for a bit of a low-key episode this time, by discussing two shows that left the hosts underwhelmed for one reason or another. First, CC delivers a rant dripping with disappointment, about the ever evolving dumpster fire that is the second season of the current TV Anime adaption of Kentaro Miura’s Berserk. After that, John wraps up the show by talking about the Danmachi spin-off Sword Oratoria and why its more serious approach to the world and characters set up by its predecessor is kind of a lackluster experience.

Episode 33: Colossal Appeal

In line with the show John and CC review this time around, the episode length and number of series discussed in the Sneak Peek are of somewhat titanic proportions.

After giving all the new hot summer Anime their two bits of due diligence, they wrap up with the monstrous hit Attack on Titan and discuss both its first and long awaited second season.
