Murder on the Mugen Express.

This week, Allen takes on the first movie (and at the time of writing also the only one) of the Demon Slayer franchise, Mugen Train. He finds it quite entertaining, given that it -- like so many movies belonging to a well-known shounen franchise -- has to come up with completely original material that won't change the status quo between the characters too much.

And with that, we end on a pretty high note. Here's hoping we can repeat that next week. See you all then.

Kickin' it on a Cub.

Oh, we got a good one for you this week. I went and watched Super Cub, and let me tell you, it's a gem for quiet slice-of-life enthusiasts.

Gonna be hard to top that trip, but we'll see you again next week anyway.

Compassion Might Be Misplaced.

Not that Tim has any for our show of the week. He did not think very highly of Combatants Will Be Dispatched!, and to be fair, it's a very high-risk affair to make a show where just about the entire cast is a bunch of jackasses. It has its moments, but yeah... too far between each, I guess.

And that was our timely surprise visit. Next week, we'll be scooting along, if I don't get cut off in traffic, that is. See you all then.

Can You Really Call It HIGH School if it's in Hell?!'s a demon realm, which might not specifically be hell, but.... this week, Allen takes a look at Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun again, and what do you know... the second season is a step up from the first. How could one improve a show where the enrollment song is all about eating humans, I have no idea, but the show did it.

How does one go up from there? We'll just have to wait and see if it happens. See you again later.

To Your Ragedy.

Allen's pick of the week is To Your Eternity, and comes to the realization that he doesn't really appreciate tragedy porn. That might be a bit of a flippant way to describe this show (and that's on me, not Allen), but it does kinda point out the main thing you have to appreciate to get anything out of this show.

And once again, that's that. Next week, we'll once again be sequestered (and semestered) among the demons. See you all on the flipside.

Home is Where the Hurt is.

Hello, everyone. Over the last year and a half, most people here have probably gotten far more intimately familiar with their homes than they cared for, but as our protagonist of the week is about to find out, it might be worse to not have a home at all. Dragon Goes House-Hunting puts us in the presence of Letty, who faces the combined problem of being thrown out and also being a weak dragon in a world that seems to favor fighting stats very much. The show is amusing in a very self-aware way, though, so by all means go along with Letty on this new adventure.

Next week, Allen's gonna take us on a quite different kind of soul searching, so join us all then. Laters.
