    I Want To Connect But... We're Socially Distanced! - The Sarazanmai Episode

    Season 1 finale!  The babies are back, this time discussing Kunihiko Ikuhara's 2019 surreal dramedy Sarazanmai.  "The world is facing another challenge right now, is it connected or is it not?"  Are love and desire mutually exclusive avenues of connection, or are they interwoven throughout all of our relationships?  The gang tackles these questions while experiencing their own troubles connecting via spotty WiFi and socially distanced malaise, but nothing can get in the way of a group of pals dishing over a cocktail.

    Socially Distanced! Checking In From Afar

    In this mini episode the gang sets up a primer for the next full episode on Neon Genesis Evangelion,  give their updates on quarantine, and share their must-watch anime lists to spice up your isolation.   



    National response (in the US) has been poor, to put it lightly.  Instead of linking to a national organization, we encourage everyone to look up how your particular City/Town/Community is responding to the crisis.  We're going to provide a link to a resource guide for our Philly friends.
