23 Feb

natto

On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton brings on new co-host, Bookie, to cover Chapter 40 of the manga! In which, we are introduced to the fearsome assassin, known as, Sarutobi Ayame (or Sa-chan for short). We also have a Life Lessons segment and an unusually lengthy Anime/Manga Comparison on Episode 22 of the anime. Topics of discussion on this episode include what the true meaning behind marriage is, how much of the story Sorachi may or may not have planned out from the beginning, and what would happen to Freddy Krueger if he invaded the dreams of the people of Kabukicho. Hope everyone takes a shine to the new addition to the crew, and enjoy the episode!
