John takes a deep dive into the entirety of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, leading up to his review of the newest iteration on the popular card battle Anime: Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS.
After that, the two hosts wrap up this episode by talking about the buddy cop fantasy show Cop Craft and elaborate on why its surprisingly forward discussion of topics like immigration, racism and contemporary politics is handled better than they would have expected.

John kicks off this episode by taking a look at the isekai comedy series “Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?” and explains why the show might try to follow in Konosuba’s footsteps but ends up being a rather run-of-the-mill offering in that particular genre. After that, the hosts review the newest adaption of the popular manga “Fruits Basket” and reveal why there is more substance to this romantic comedy than the plot summary might suggest. Finally, the team wraps up this round of reviews with “Lord El-Melloi II’s Case Files: Rail Zeppelin Grace note” and discuss if this entry in the Fate universe is a proper continuation of one of their favorite character stories from Fate/Zero.
