    Let's Talk About Squid Game [The Special Edition - Episode #07]

    Just what the heck is Squid Game all about? Everyone is talking about it, but we are talking about it as well in a short episode for our listeners for those out of the loop and looking to add Squid Game to their watchlist!

    Squid Game is a K-Drama and an entry in the rare concept of the survival genre, dominated by Battle Royale, Hunger Games, and Danganronpa. It is currently one of Netflix's top grossing title of 2021, and possibly of all time in the near two decade history of the Netflix brand.

    Ikari Strain #3: How Long is Too Long of an Anime Series?

    Ikari Strain #3: How Long is Too Long of an Anime Series?

    In this episode, Sanjo-chan talks about the ideal episode length of an anime series. We have the common 12 episode anime length as an "entry level", followed by the 24 episode variety (or 12 episodes split into two parts). Lastly, we have the uncommon 52 episode offerings. But when one should be considered lucky if their favorite anime are either Dragon Ball, Naruto, and One Piece from the very beginning.

    "Ikari Strain" are special episodes within the Centaku Media Podcast where one topic is chosen and ripped apart in criticism in hopes of reaching those who can relate to the problems riddled within.

    Show Notes
    Addendums: Apologies in advance! I was so excited and recorded this episode on a whim, so there are a few inaccuracies when the episode counts are mentioned. However, this is what the show notes are for! While it may be an episode or two off, these are meant to prove the point of the discussion.

    Danganronpa: 13 episodes instead of 12 mentioned
    Cowboy Bebop: 26 episodes instead of 24 mentioned
    Fullmetal Alchemist (2003): there are 51 episodes total
    Dragon Ball (franchise): if you add Dragon Ball (153 episodes), Z (291 episodes), and Super (131 episodes), there are a total of 575 episodes
    One Piece: the previously aired episode was #981 by the time of recording (7/6/2021), confirming the mentioned count
