Having done a video game and anime podcast every week for the past 12 years, it would be correct to say that not every anime we've ever watched has been stellar. We've seen the good ones. We've seen the bad ones.

We don't hate it. We just didn't care for it.
And we don't mind heaping praise on anime that we like. This week, we also talk in more detail about the new Castlevania anime and we do an extended Blerds of a Feather (that's where Panda and Ninja talk about the same subject) segment on Darling in the Franxx.
