Episode 155 – The Striking Convention Menagerie! (Part 2)

Episode 155 - The Striking Convention Menagerie! (Part 2)

It’s that time of year again, when the convention season meets its apex in Los Angeles for the cluster-mess known as Anime Expo – where all of your dreams may not come true but there’s bound to be some cool announcements. In the second of this two-part episode, we continue with the rest of the first day of AX with even MORE manga to go through, and afterwards we roam through the rest of the convention for some questionable discussions, curious yet head-scratching reveals, and a LOT of One Piece talk, both very good and very not-good. And it wouldn’t be AX without a “one more thing” to tickle some folks’ early-2010s Hot Topic itch with a certain series getting revived… because apparently someone asked for more Black Butler to be a thing. What else got announced? Tune in and find out.

P.S. to the listeners: all of us have a zero-tolerance policy on BS rhetoric. Welcome to WRATH MONTH. We say trans rights around these parts.
