Episode 57 - Sailor Moon S

It's time for episode 57, and we're diving deep into the the wild, sometimes confusing world of Sailor Moon S! Things get a little deeper, a little more complex, and a lot more queer. Also, a large digression about Dragon Age, because why not?

Episode 34 - Anime and Studio Ghibli

We’re back with episode 34, discussing anime, its status in geek culture, and how neither of us have all the answers. Why is there so much self-deprecation in the anime community? Where does it fall in the hierarchy? Why do some people categorize Studio Ghibli films outside the anime genre? We have things to say, though not all of them are answers.

Warning: Though the episode contains no explicit language or graphic descriptions, some of our conversation concerns adult themes.
