Episode 84: Deep Space Symphonies

In this episode the hosts unchain the power of SCIENCE! First John takes a stab at the scientific side of the Raildex Cinematic Universe and struggles to find anything interesting in what A Certain Scientific Accelerator says or does. Then the gang joins a bunch of high school kids on their involuntary trip into deep space and discusses why Astra Lost in Space is not only a riveting space adventure, but also an emotionally rewarding character drama. Last but most definitely not least, the two hosts gush about all the epic moments from the assumed series finale of one of their favorite Anime franchises: Senki Zesshō Symphogear XV.

Episode 83: Burning Hearts

The hosts unleash their romantic side and talk about three hot blooded Anime to light up the incoming cold winter nights. First CC elaborates on why O Maidens in Your Savage Season‘s surprisingly open and honest take on the pitfalls of five girls’ developing sexuality, is a heartfelt tale worth to be told. Following that, John stays on the high school romance train and reviews Given, a gay love story about music, loss and the importance of opening your heart to the people who care about you the most. Last but not least the gang talks about Promare, the fiery new movie from Studio Trigger’s Hiroyuki Imaishi, and discuss why this face-melting action extravaganza is a must-see experience.
