LB: I’m going to try not to be too harsh on the ending of Kuma Miko….
Karen: I’m going to stop you RIGHT THERE.

We bid fond and not-so-fond farewells to several Spring shows, but all is very nearly overshadowed by the 23-car-pileup that was Kuma Miko 12. Fortunately, I’m prepared with an uplifting (and exceptionally expensive) Sakamoto date to lift our spirits after a certain bear-themed anime did it’s best to bring us down; birds are involved.

Otherwise, we’re not sure if we want Joker Game to come back with a second season (“Now with actual World War II”), Flying Witch has always been about produce and will always be about produce, Hane gets assaulted by Jesus and we’re happy about it, and don’t you dare give shade to Shonen Maid online or LB will end you and everything you hold dear.

Show Notes:

  1. The Kizumonogatari audiobook, from Vertical Inc. features performances by Keith Silverstein, Eric Kimerer, and Cristina Vee. It’s also an audiobook for an LN, and we should probably all go out and buy it to celebrate the fact that it exists.
  2. Here is some more info on the giant jellyfish that now haunt my nightmares. What this has to do with anything else, I could not even begin to tell you; apparently it’s related to Macross, somehow.
  3. This is the figure I gave my husband to get him to agree to let me go on a date with Sakamoto:Galkofigure
  4. This is the dress I wore on my date with Sakamoto, helpfully modeled by Icelandic singer Bjork:Bjork_swan
  5. I mistakenly said that Super Lovers ended at episode 11; it actually ended with 10. I don’t know why, but for some reason I was convinced there were an odd number of episodes.
  6. The first Shonen Ai show that Lifesong watched was Love Stage.
  7. Cerberus is another show that we haven’t dropped, but I wasn’t caught up, so we just skipped it this week. We’re going to make an effort to be more consistent next season (probably by virtue of following fewer shows in the first place….)
