Episode 74: Religious Roadblocks

John takes the lead on this episode and tries his very best to make sense of the convoluted plot, the ridiculous amount of characters and the plethora of story arcs in the third season of the popular light novel adaption A Certain Magical Index. After that, CC tackles yet another sports Anime and explains what makes the laid back character-driven Run with the Wind a surprising standout in that genre.

Episode 73: Pitch Imperfect

On this episode the two hosts take turns, as CC reviews the emotionally rewarding slice of life series My Roommate is a Cat and explains why he managed to engage with this story on a personal level. Then John discusses the lackluster airplane combat Anime The Magnificent KOTOBUKI and lays out the reasons why, despite its promising start, this show was a big disappointment. Last but not least it’s CC’s turn again, to talk about the newest iteration in one of his favorite Sports Anime franchises and all-time classic: Captain Tsubasa.
