New season is in full flow in this bumper episode of Let’s Go! The Weekly Anime Podcast About Weekly Anime. Lupin, Goma-chan, Deku and Chidori are back. And a whole lot more besides.
Lewis Smith joins Anthony & Brian to sort the wheat from the chaff of the upcoming anime season.
Dwayne and Brian take advantage of the mid-season lull to get 7 episodes of Bono Bono watched. Plus My Hero Academia and Rage of Bahamut Virgin Soul have their finales, Dragon Ball Super and Shonen Ashibe have a week off and Ninja Girl & Samurai Master might have ended. We weren’t entirely sure.
As the season winds down we say farewell to two series this week. Pulp priests Vatican Miracle Examiner and Anime Iconoclast Heybot bid us farewell.
Meanwhile, Frieza shows us there’s no I in TEAM, Kaisar tries to stop a war, Nike and Kukuri become thieves and Mary Jane Watson shows up.
He’s back. The seal is back. That’s right, Goma-chan has returned from re-run purgatory with a new episode where he dresses up like a dog. Plus: the final exams continue in My Hero Academia, Alessand continues to be the most pathetic character of 2017, Guru Guru continues it’s break neck pace and Vatican Miracle Examiner continues doing what its doing too.
A double dose of fractured fairy tales this week as Vatican Miracle Examiner gets in on Pikotaro’s game with some specially satanic variations of folklore favourites. Plus betrayal in Rage of Bahamut, final exams in My Hero Academia and a boring fight with a sniper in Dragon Ball Super.
Goku & Hit vs the Pride Troopers? Who will win? Who will survive? And more to the point, what weekly show made Brian throw in the towel and declare his allegiance to 100% Teacher Pascal once more?
Pikotaro’s LULLABY LA LA BY arrives and we add it to the Let’s Go schedule. Turns out it’s very timely, with Shonen Ashibe in repeats, Rage of Bahamut on hiatus and another show getting the boot this week. Plus: Magical Girls, Dogs, Wily Old Men and Tin Toys!
Vatican Miracle Examiner is this week’s best anime as the first arc draws to its explosive conclusion. Meanwhile the battle with Stain draws to a close in My Hero Academia, another 7 entrants get eliminated in Dragon Ball Super and a pretty good pun falls afoul of clumsy translation in Bono Bono. All this and more in another episode of Let’s Go, the weekly anime podcast about weekly anime!
This week Dragon Ball Super hits episode 100 and Kale goes berserk. Plus, Stain faces down two of UA’s finest in My Hero Academia, we agonise over an anime-only joke in Guru Guru and try and figure out what we thought of the debuting The Reflection.
