Kaiseki Anime Ep. 5 — Megalo Box, Steins; Gate 0, and Hisone and Masotan

This week, we discuss three anime closely connected by… our desire to talk about them. Coming up with themes and connecting things is hard.

But give it a lesson, I did and I did not regret it. I was especially impressed with this one guy on the podcast, he had the uncanny ability to always say exactly what I wanted to say. Nuts.

  • 00:00 Intro
  • 00:40 Megalo Box
  • 06:10 Steins;Gate 0
  • 10:52 Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan
  • 20:31 Outro

Let us know if there’s anything you’d be interested in hearing us discuss. We can talk about ongoing anime forever but it’s always better if we talk about things the listeners are interested in.

By the way, we’re on iTunes and Google Play.
