NOT JUST for Anime Fans!

I admit that I’m not the biggest fan of the anime genre as a whole. Although, I’ve been getting more and more into it. I enjoy this podcast mainly for the interesting discussions on faith and how it intertwines with a lot of the genre films and television shows we all enjoy. Bex does a fantastic job, and is a joy to listen to. You’ve made a fan out of me!

Thank you for all you do. God bless you

Pretty Kinda Great Podcast

I'm a stickler when it comes to anime podcasts and this one I listen to.

Updated Review

Definitely a great podcast. The production values could be higher but I understand that's asking quite a lot monetarily; definite four stars.

I would like to request something small: I liked how when you reviewed Kemurikusa, you gave a content warning (or in this case, not a warning) at the beginning. If possible, I think this would be a good idea to do something similar at the beginning of all your review episodes. This along with a short synopsis of the show without spoilers would be a great improvement, I think.

Also, and this is probably less of a good idea, I would like to know if you recommend a show to be watched or not at the beginning of the episode, so I can know if the show has the Bex Seal of Approval or not without spoiling the whole thing. However, this would have fewer people listening to your whole episodes, so I understand if you don’t take this suggestion.

(You don’t have to read this review in an episode, I don’t want it to sound like I’m just writing a second review for the attention)
