The constant mispronounciations kinda bothered me as well, but I honestly also found it kind of amusing, in a way. Both of you mispronounced Tsuki ga Kirei, but in each in your own way and neither of you ever changed to match the other. It was like a battle of the preferred pronounciations. But yeah, Tsuki ga Key-ray, Land of the Lus-trus. Made in Abyss (no "the" in there).
Anyway, enough (light-hearted) negativity. Had a lot of fun listen to you guys debate and bicker over which series gets what "award". While I haven't watched nearly as much anime as either of you I've heard enough about most series to know that your choices were generally pretty gao good ones. I noticed my opinions generally fell more in line with Andrew than Chris. Pretty great to hear you both view Made in Abyss as an anime of the year though. I absolutely adore that show, harsh and heart-rending as it may be, and if I had made these anime lists I would've probably shoved Made in Abyss into almost every category where it could reasonably fit.
Anyway, Imma end it off with my own personal top 5 of the year, just for comparison's sake.
1. Made in Abyss
2. Houseki no Kuni (Land of the Lustrous)
3. KADO: The right answer
4. Kuzu no Honkai (Scum's Wish)
5. Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou (Girl's Last Tour)
Thanks for keeping me entertained when I'm out working. You're definitely one of my favourite podcasts to listen to.
