    It‘s another Golden Ticket episode! On request from patron Nice (that’s their name), Evan and David review the 2003 hard sci-fi anime series Planetes, about space debris haulers. But because Evan is Evan, he also read the manga, so this discussion includes both the anime and Makoto Yukimura’s original manga series. How does this beloved series hold up nearly 20 years later? Topics include: space ninjas, frozen poop, and GO TO THERAPY HACHI. Send us feedback at podcast@anigamers.com! Show notes, links, comments, and more can be found at http://anigamers.com/podcast.

I have a nice chat with my cohost, Anarchy "Uncle Nax" Inaki, about the first volume of KonoSuba, a book about a bunch of underachieving dimwits in a fantasy world struggling not to get each other killed by their unrepentant stupidity. Catch us next month when we discuss a book about a girl reborn in another world as a spider.

Been listening for years

Evan and David are great at what they do and I’m always stoked to see a new episode show up in my feed! The three houses episode alone convinced me to get the game and ai’m glad it did.

Good mild curry soft boys

These guys are the best boys of anime and video games. I came ‘cause I’m a weeb but stayed for Evan’s high level jokes. On the real though, David and Evan have a great podcast and everyone should listen to them.

Hottest Takes From the Softest Boys

If you like talk about games from three years ago yo'll love this show! Can you believe this show isn't called podcastgatari grand order? Me neither! Ever get tired of listening to people be disappointed in anime on Twitter? GOOD NEWS! You can listen to people be dissappointed in anime RIGHT HERE!

In all seriousness this is a great show best suited for older anime fans. Start watching anime before 20005? Check it out.
