Note: Following our spoiler free reviews of all listed shows and outro music, we get into a spoiler discussion of Re:Zero -Starting Life In Another World-. If you have not watched Re:Zero to its completion, avoid listening beyond the 1:40:47 mark.

The intro music for this episode is the OP for NEW GAME! called “Sakura Skip” by fourfolium (the cast). The outro for this episode is the ED for Berserk called “Beyond Closed Eyes” by Nagi Yanagi. Following the spoiler segment we play the ED2 for Re:Zero called “Stay Alive” by Rie Takahashi (Emilia). Following the outro song we play some remixes of Re:Zero characters from Anime Song Covers on Youtube.

We hope you all enjoy!
