It's great to hear you use "Love Good Time" for your intro :). Just the other day, I re-listened to a French cover of the song I once found on YouTube. It's a neat tune, for sure. Too bad about the band, I guess.

I feel dirty admitting it, but your talking about Opantsu again (I remember when you mentioned it the first time on the podcast) got me quite curious. So I actually checked it out. All I can say is... What the frick, Japan :?? I was torn between laughing and facepalming. Seems to have an extremely specialized appeal. I can kiiind of see it, but... not really.

Good news on a 2nd season to Takagi-san. With how season 1 ended, they were basically torturing us by dangling the romance right on front of our faces. So I'm very much interested to see where this leads the story.

If School-Live's source material is ending soon, that probably means the window for a season 2 is closing. It sucks how the ending left us completely hanging... But I won't cave and go to the manga.

Some of those titles Andrew recited were just too much :D. Only the Japanese could come up with this. Reminds me of that one light novel I heard about whose protagonist is reincarnated as a hot spring. Yes, literally. No, I'm not making that up.

Andrew, you mirrored my own thoughts on the Vic Mognogna scandal perfectly. I'm not a fan of his in particular, but whenever I've seen him on a convention panel, he always seemed like a genuinely nice person. I also think he simply misjudged how much physical contact with his fans is generally deemed appropriate in public situations.
I equally agree with how messy controversies like this become when social media are involved. Honestly, neither side will walk away from this as a winner. Luckily, I don't use twitter and stuff, anyway. I love me my drama animes, but I don't need this kind of drama in my life.

Great episode as always. Regarding that last part, I absolutely agree and unfortunately it has become a reality, I have been almost a year "sober" from Facebook and I don't regret it, social networks have become really negative places. I decided to invest more on communities like Reddit or Twitter but being careful on who to follow, it has helped as I decide what to see Instead of getting all of that in my face all the time.

How can you find facebook a 'negative place' as everything not in the 'politicaly correct' spectrum is getting censored and there is no diversity of opinion anymore? Facebook is literaly getting sanitized

Just asking, no animosity intended.
