    Bamboo Blade, Part 1

    Bamboo Blade, Part 1

    Sports anime Bamboo Blade is an AIC ASTA production about a high school girls kendo team and the deadbeat teacher who supervises them and occasionally gambles on their success. BJ and Duffo watch the first 13 episodes and discuss what goes into scoring an ippon, using kendo as an outlet for your secret violent side, and cheating in sports by giving one of your players a fake Power Rangers-sona.
     
    Apologies for the audio, which is a little rougher than usual!

    ChäoS;HEAd

    ChäoS;HEAd, better known today as the Science Adventure installment that came before Steins;Gate, is a psychological thriller anime from Madhouse that follows a mentally unwell otaku who stumbles into a violent conspiracy with serial killers, brain manipulating radio waves, and people whose delusions allow them to overwrite reality. BJ and Duffo discuss the history of denpa fiction, whether the show acts as effective bait and switch from the typical harem show, and go through the supposed science of Gigalomaniacs realbooting DI-swords.
