「遠方より敵来たる / まつろわぬアテナ」 (Enpo Yori Teki Kitaru / Matsurowanu Atena)

In addition to our usual podcasts, we’re introducing a new shorter format featuring a smaller cast and more specific topics in order to discuss more than a season’s shows. And to kick things off, our guests this episode are two wonderful writers who haven’t had their time to shine in previous podcasts: BakaMochi and Stereoman.

Kokoro Connect – 04

「二つの想い」 (Futatsu no Omoi)
“Twin Feelings”

And the only thing that was on my mind at the end was, “Damn… this guy is a total player…” Taichi clearly can’t be that ignorant to believe that none of these girls have a crush on him right?

CODE GEASS: Nunnally in Wonderland

「ナナリー in ワンダーランド」 (Nanarī in Wandārando)
“Nunnally in Wonderland”

How you end up reacting to this comedic, light-hearted, frequently downright silly, spinoff OVA based on the Code Geass series depends pretty much entirely on what you’re looking for in it.

Rinne no Lagrange 2 – 04

「再会の街、鴨川」 (Saikai no Machi, Kamogawa)
“A Reunion in Kamogawa”

It’s interesting how, if you change the circumstances of a conflict just slightly, the side that looks like the bad guys can change completely. Where before it was definitely Dizelmine, now Villagulio is beginning to look like the king who will drive their planets to war.

La storia della Arcana Famiglia – 05

「Amici d’infanzia」
“Childhood Friends”

I admire Nova a lot now. It’s quite hard to make rational decisions like he did when you have to choose between justice and family.
