We're not doing having super-long guest-filled episodes just yet!  Longtime friend Colin "Skipperwing" Byrd joins John and Chris to talk many things this week, starting with Chris and Colin's thoughts on the recent smash hit anime Your Name and thoughts on its director in general.  John also shares his overall thoughts on the Kickstarter-funded throwback game Yooka-Laylee, and an impromptu discussion on crazy moments all three of us have encountered in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild bridges the gap to our biggest topic.

Inspired by the recent Hollywood remake, all three delve into the flashy yet intellectual world of the iconic Ghost in the Shell franchise, touching on the original theatrical anime films, the Stand Alone Complex TV series, and the ScarJo-centric live-action remake.  Expect speculation on its themes of technology and identity, discussion on the remake's controversial casting and troubling Hollywood trends, and the inception of what may become Chris's least favorite recurring joke ever.
