Episode 47: Survival of the Littest

Switching things up after the last episode, CC kicks off the show by talking about the colorful Battle Royale slaughterfest Jūni Taisen: Zodiac War and why the series is a lackluster entry in that specific genre. Following that, John focuses on the fractured tale of Kino’s Journey – the Beautiful World- and the gang discusses its many different shortcomings. CC then wraps things up with his Review of Girls’ Last Tour, a sorrowful tale about the end of humanity, that manages to pull you in with its sympathetic, goofy main characters and great world building.
