Episode 104 - The Doublewide Train Trip: Revving Up! (Part 1)

Welcome aboard this double-episode train ride, where we have brought some friends along for the ride to partake in a scenic route journey with several big stops along the way. In this first of two episodes, a show that was quite literally TOO BIG to just be one, our good friend Sketch joins us as we take a look at the state of anime production in 2021 (hint: it’s not great), lament yet another film adaptation doomed for the pile of development hell, wonder when MAPPA will finally get some sleep when they’re not preparing the world for Chainsaw Man (and not a certain movie), and even discuss the merits of the reasons for an immediately-cancelled manga’s demise.

Stick around for the second half of this double episode, where we finally sit down and discuss a little movie called MUGEN TRAIN. And most importantly, *WATCH ODDTAXI.* It’s GOOD. And it won’t let you down unlike a certain show that turned rotten.
