Otakusphere Weekly #6: That’s Not Where Babies Come From

Download this episode (right click and save)

This week’s discussion is dominated by a certain Big Order plot-twist that will forever live in infamy…or at least until the summer anime season. Meanwhile, I seem to have some kind of mental block where I can’t remember which shows LB is watching, despite the fact that he’s been entirely consistent and his watchlist isn’t even that long. Fortunately, my ineptitude at podcast hosting is far outclassed by the ineptitude of the writing in both Super Lovers and Bungo Stray Dogs, meaning I can still feel more or less okay about myself. However, don’t make the mistake of thinking that the writing in High School Fleet is inept just because the show is dumb; achieving THAT level of stupid has to be deliberate, and requires a certain level of raw talent.

In other news, we discover Lifesong’s primary talent in life, Joker Game is awesome just for acknowledging that Morse Code is cool, we worry about food sanitation in regard to Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou, and this is perhaps the third week in a row where Pan de Peace has not featured even one joke. Why are we still watching it? Why are we still watching half of this stuff? Why won’t Sakamoto marry me*? Listen and find out!

*The reason why Sakamoto won’t marry me is, of course, because I am already married, and bigamy is illegal. Surely, that is the only reason why he’s holding back from that proposal….
