Season 6: Episode 14 – Mad Science

Listen to Season 6: Episode 14 – Mad Science

What was supposed to be a one episode review ended up as two! Yes, this week it’s two hosts and two reviews! Bill (sorta) reviews Episode 18, “Grave,” and Andy does Josh’s job for him this week with Episode 19, “Superior.” We’re in full video game mode now, and it’s not quite as fun as watching a Twitch stream. Still, Andy and Bill have a blast talking about the show and getting sidetracked far too often in this one!

It’s no April Fool, just another episode of Tooning Japanese! This week Andy formerly introduces us to Mika in the aptly titled episode “Mika.” Josh comes to terms with his deep-seated hatred of the young girl. Also, a lot of characters either die or change for the worse. It’s not a great episode, but we laugh the whole way through! Come celebrate with us!

We didn’t drop off the face of the earth. Okay, maybe for a bit. But we’re back now with a brand new episode! Speaking of dropping off, the quality of these Gungrave episodes sure are teetering on the edge lately. Will “Letter” be a success or a flop? Guess you’ll have to listen to find out what happens between Big Daddy and Harry!

It’s a Bill and Andy episode! They review Episode 12 of Gungrave, “Kind.” Sadly, they both aren’t too kind to the content of this one. We skip ahead in time yet again, and the events of this episode are mostly filler. At least there’s still some really good conversation to be had!

Listen to Bonus Episode: Happy Holidays 2020

I cannot believe that we have finally reached the end of 2020 after the last 27 months. Well, it’s felt that long, at least. We have a couple of fun games as well as gift giving. Speaking personally (it’s Andy btw), despite how bad 2020 has been, I am thankful for everything that we have managed to accomplish still this year. And we are all thankful for you, the fans, who continue to listen to us and support our show. Here’s to a hopefully brighter 2021.
