Jumping right in, because there’s no time to waste on this anime show that has precious little time in general (and wastes it anyway!), it’s Kagewani, the insufficient Paranormal Creatures successor to Yamishibai‘s Goofy-Ass Ghost Stories About Haunted Printers. As we get deep into the weeds about what does/does not work in a seven-minute anime, not a single ONE of my references to Fatal Frame 3 stick (I should’ve explained the tattoo better!) and our moseying takes us through the glades of Cowboy Bebop, where Joel pines for a simpler time and I reference that joke in the Boogie Woogie Feng Shui dub that’s been weirding me out for approximately fifteen years. Later, I get my jabs in on Attack on Titan and subsequently try (and fail) to explain why I keep reading Claymore (and somehow liking it, is the worst part???) and we round the final corner on the track asking, politely, that you never remind us about those SPOOKY KOREAN ANIMATED GHOST STORIES. It’s a Fast Karate miracle, part of the Ultra Super Anime Time block!
Welcome to 2016, kids!
(LOOK AT THAT SUPER HOT TATTOO OF IMMENSE, SPECTRAL PAIN THO)
Housekeeping: We haven’t gotten around to questioncast yet (break was busy, and now Graz is sick!) but the upside is: if you’re still looking to get in, you got time! Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see about recording that pilot episode sometime… at some point… maybe! Feel free to send in whatever you like, and cite if you want to be anonymous or not, I guess!
Audio Quality Status: Had to work some magic on Joel’s track, but I think I got it within reasonable parameters (truly, that’s all we can ever hope for).
Music Selection: ARROIVAL OF FEEYA.

I can only but accept my situation, and try to be happy for it.
