hello newbie here really love the site/podcast... as a new listener i noticed this impressions episode and some others were quite long (which i like) but there are so many shows / topics being discussed and i know you guys list everything discussed in each episode but wondering if you guys ever thought of putting in timestamps so its a little easier to navigate news an show discussions that we would like to skip or listen too here and there

anyways sorry for the ramble an not sure this is right place for this comment but keep up good work

thanks in advance !!

For me, Cutie Honey Universe isn't really about Honey but Sister Jill instead. From the various series over the years, I can't really recall Sister Jill being more than just a shallow big bad. Even though you guys don't like Japanese live-action but you should track down Cutie Honey the Live. It doesn't have Sister Jill in it but it's still good regardless.

You shouldn't compared Doreiku to King's Game but rather Kakegurui instead since Kakegurui does have the aspect of gambling with your way of living on the line.

GeGeGe no Kitaro is going to be at least 50+ episodes according to a flyer that Toei had at AnimeJapan 2018. I don't know where you got it's going to be 12 episodes.

I wouldn't worried about the new Legend of the Galactic Heroes being cut short. I imagine they are going the new Space Battleship Yamato route that the movies will be shown on TV at some point.

Gurazeni is more like a slice of life comedy than an actual sports anime.

Kakuriyo Bed and Breakfast for Spirits is a mix of romance and two worlds understanding each other. It's not a food porn show really.

I don't really think Magical Girl Site really has "kill them all" attitude that you guys think it does. There might be one or two characters who has but it's not everyone. Also they do explain why those characters act in the way they do.

Andrew, your Gunma pronunciation was horrible. It's "Goon-ma" not "Gun-ma".

I heard from someone that Persona 5 The Animation was going faster than the game which to me seems odd since I never played the game, I felt they should have finished the first arc by episode 3.

I appreciate your efforts to point out the title of a show as you wrap up discussing it :). That's something that helps me better keep track of things, especially since I'm usually half-distracted while listening.

I'm curious to see if the military geekage in SAO is going to be too much for me. I generally like military-ish strategizing, but don't care much about trivia.

It probably would help me more than others as we reference stuff at a later time, but alas we would be more inclined if we were doing spoiler discussions that require people to skip. About all I can offer at the current time is to note that the list of shows in the description and article post is in order of discussed.

Thanks for listening!

Nice! Thanks for the clarification.

I just aim to please these days. Next week, I'm focusing on pronouncing Golden Kamuy as "Golden Kee Moo".

My best team is still my zerk team although my saber team is nearly beating that out. So kintoki is definitely a hero I have wanted for that team for a while. I missed him last time he came around.
