The Switch is out, John's geeking out, and Chris's cats do their best to get on the show.  John starts the episode out by discussing his impressions so far for the much-hyped new Zelda game and some thoughts on the Nintendo Switch in general, then dives headlong into a review and dissection with Chris of the 1999 animated classic The Iron Giant.

Full disclosure: We spoil the crap out of the movie, so go watch it if you haven't already (Especially since it's just been put back on Netflix).  Also be prepared to hear John gush about something like never before, because there's a good reason he wanted to discuss it.

23:47 - The Iron Giant review (Spoilers)

Mar 10, 2017

Our hiatus is over, and it's time to get back to geeking out.  John recounts some more recent convention silliness and an impromptu cameo in a video from one of his favorite YouTubers, followed by his thoughts on the giddy fun that is The Lego Batman Movie.  Chris then discusses his impressions of the still-going anime series Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, the nature of which inevitably results in us tackling the topic of anime fanservice for the first time.

The main event is one that Chris has wanted to cover from Day 1, as we dive into the recent anime phenomenon that is Yuri on Ice.  We talk about pretty men, character development and the show's "personal" nature, and even the significance of how the series handles gay representation compared to other anime.  And, of course, pork cutlet bowls.
