Episode 29 – Saigo, The Sweetest Transvestite

9 Feb


On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton and Jay sit down to cover Chapters 38 and 39 of the manga, in which Gin and Katsura turn into Pako and Zurako and learn what it really means to be both strong and look good in a dress and makeup. We also have a double Life Lessons segment, an Anime/Manga Comparison segment covering Episode 24 of the anime and even some feedback before we end the show. Topics discussed this episode include Colton and Jay’s experiences in cross dressing, how Saigo is THE most amazing character in anything ever, and how and why Prince Hata hasn’t been eaten by any of his ferociously dangerous pets yet. Enjoy!
