I think it's telling that I was more baffled and horrified whenever I glanced over at your stream than I was watching ZombiePie play the dark true ending of the pigeon dating game. You're a hero for doing this.

This was a lot of fun, and I'd love to see more playdates like this in the future.

@atheistpreacher: I'm honestly flattered that anyone would take the time to go through my old blogs, especially since I haven't written all that much as of late. Heck, there's even a half-written "Anime in 2018" blog on Google Docs that I never finished for various reasons. (It involved a lot of... discussion about Fate/Stay Night)

I've been shying away from Texhnolyze, partially because of the Lain connection, partially because of its reputation, partially because I'm not sure what my limits for "weird" anime actually are. (I liked that 2019 Boogiepop series a decent amount, but I watched the first 13 episodes of Revolutionary Girl Utena recently and didn't feel especially compelled to keep going.) Still, there's absolutely a non-zero chance of me checking it out when I'm in the mood to be angry and confused. Mushi-Shi has also been in my crunchyroll que for multiple years, so... that'll probably happen at some point too.

Ben: There's another Dr. Dre?!

Jeff: If your name was Andre and people called you "Dre" and you were like "I need a cool name" , it's not unheard of that people on opposite sides of the country might come to the conclusion of like "no, Doctor Dre".

Brad: Isn't that how Newton and Liebniz invented calculus independently?

I'm glad I'm not the only person who started laughing at that.

When someone told me that Blood Warrior was from the same people who made that Jackie Chan game, everything immediately clicked into place.

Always great to hear from Rich. His enthusiasm almost makes me want to give Underworld Ascendant another shot, but I feel like that's going to be reserved for whenever Otherside considers themselves "done" with it.

Glad you're liking Nioh. I think it's probably fair warning for your completionist tendencies that I tell you I got the Platinum Trophy for the game somewhere slightly above the 100 hour mark. While I still find that game incredibly satisfying on a mechanical level, especially as I started messing around with all of the different weapons, skills, and magic, I'm not going to pretend that some of it wasn't dull and grindy.

Also, yeah, Mob Psycho Season 2 is really something special. I believe this season is going to be 13 episodes, so you're going to have to wait another few weeks to see things reach their full conclusion.

I'm actually kind of sad that this podcast is over for a while. I dunno what they'll end up watching next (There's a part of me that wants them to continue with another Dragonball thing, and there's a part of me that wants them to try something totally different) but I await it with eager anticipation.

Also, the idea of Dan watching Evangelion is hilarious. Knowing what I know about the man's tastes, I cannot for the life of me imagine he'll enjoy it, but I really want to hear his take on the whole thing anyway.

I have whatever the new Enderal game is installed on Steam, and I've heard good things. Hopefully, an Elder Scrolls total conversion not made by the Elder Scrolls people will have more interesting writing or systems. If not... well, it was free.

(P.P.S. The Danganronpa games would be more fun as anime I suspect. Those courtroom mini-games are kinda bad, especially in 2. I'll reserve judgement for V3 until after I've played it.)

I have some pretty mixed feelings on the first game (I think it gets a lot of the Phoenix Wright-esque mystery stuff pretty well, but hot damn is some of it the lamest kind of anime-ass anime bullshit) but unfortunately, I'm to understand that the Danganronpa anime isn't great. You'd think it would fit that format so well, since all of the "gameplay" is kinda whatever, but nuh.
