These were recorded over hours of deliberations and, while a bit of dead air was removed, it may have points of silence. This isn’t a reflection of our typical podcast episodes that are heavily edited for better listening experience.

Deliberations covered in this episode: Sci-Fi and Mecha, Horror and Psychological Thriller, Comedy, Harem, and Slice of Life.

The intro for this episode is the OP for KADO The Right Answer called “Tabiji” by Mao Ichimichi. The closing for this episode is the ED for Sakura Quest called “Freesia” by KNoW NAME.

We hope you all enjoy!
