Quite the startling title, I know, but listen to our talk of the best-sellers of 2018 (so far) and you’ll understand. Alas, we’ve got a good bit of stuff to get to before we hunker down and fire-proof the newsroom before Anime Expo happens, such as some questionable issues with the Re:ZERO Blu-ray release, some long-awaited confirmations, some sweet and killer home video sets coming in the fall, and even a trip down memory lane with a certain movie all about fusions. All of that and more, do tune in and enjoy!
(A few additional notes about this show: due to some personal circumstances on my end, this show came out way later than intended; apologies for that. Also, we had some drop-outs in this show, mainly with Jet and Duelist; the first post-ending music clip has the moment of the mic drop-out. We also had an off-air talk about Funimation’s Anime Expo premiere offerings during the recording that was kept in, at the very end of this show, solely because I just felt like keeping our raw reactions in.)
