    S06E04: I'm Not Here To Win, I'm Here To Make Friends

    Pocoloco continues his reverse monkey's paw horse racing strategy. Gyro gives his horse a butt massage with his balls. Johnny has eyes for one man and one man only (it's Gyro). Someone gets dragged by a horse but in like, a good way. If you missed Dio counting, well, this is the episode for you. And we learn to tell the difference between the riding of a bumpkin and the riding of a perfect man who did nothing wrong.

    S06E03: Gyro is Packing

    Teddy bears are easier to cuddle with than scissors, buttcracks don't exist, and 300 million year old ice is basically a Steve Jobs keynote presentation. We talk about some serious stuff including Araki's characterization of Johnny through narration, how time dilation works in sports manga, and ways not to represent middle eastern people especially right after 9/11. Not coincidentally, we meet and also say goodbye to Avdol--uh, wait, Abdul. And we meet the real stars of Steel Ball Run: a group of dancing ankle-high horses.

    S06E02: He Put All His Stats in "Horse"

    S06E02: He Put All His Stats in "Horse"

    This week we talk a lot about Johnny Joestar and disability in media. We meet Pocoloco, the luckiest man in the world. Gyro and Johnny have their meet cute, and it involves ball-touching. We learn that shit-talking randos don't last long in the wild west. We learn that American law states that anything is legal as long as a gun is involved. Johnny eats a newspaper in Teen Wolf hell hospital. And we implore you, listener: if something walks like a romance and talks like a romance... it's probably a romance.

    S06E01: Steel! Ball! Run!!!

    S06E01: Steel! Ball! Run!!!

    Since we have officially run out of animated JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, we have decided to switch to talking about the manga. But not part 6, no, because that is presumably becoming an anime in 2 years or whatever. Instead we are talking about part 7 of JoJo's, Steel Ball Run, the greatest gay cowboy romance ever told. And our favorite arc of JoJo's. Put on your nicest chaps, sit back, and brace yourself to hear about America in 1890, the invention of prizes, the second amendment, completely unproblematic child brides, and custom leather ballsacks.

    S05E39: A Banana Clip of Thorns

    S05E39: A Banana Clip of Thorns

    Here we are at the end (or the beginning?) of Vento Aureo, and boy do we have opinions! First and foremost about sculptor Jesus. Eliz describes the gayest sculpture ever made. Mista's stubbornness has... uh, some consequences. We figure out that Polnareff's fate is really the best possible outcome for him. And we learn the most valuable lesson: someone can be the head of an international crime cartel, but as long as they're not selling drugs to children, they're a good person.

    S05E38: Thus Spoke Giorno Giovanna

    S05E38: Thus Spoke Giorno Giovanna

    Dio's back, figuratively and figuratively-literally. We finally get some good opening credits. Once again we talk about why Diavolo is not a well written villain. Araki can't stop himself from writing Kishibe Rohan Twilight Zone stories. Speaking of, we meet a young woman whose boyfriend is such a bad artist she throws herself off a building. We discuss Koichi's fate. Also Leaky Eye Luca's fate, for some reason. And we try to figure out how infinite autopsies work.
