    #95 - Persona 5: The Animation

    With the recent release of Persona 5: Royal, we thought there was no better time to revisit the 2018 anime adaptation of Persona 5! Ryan, Tori, Sarah, and returning champion Jon all convene to discuss their personal history with the Shin Megami Tensei series, their love of the original Persona 5, a bit of Royal talk, and of course discussing how well (or not so well) the anime adapted the source material.
    They also briefly touch base on how their handling quarantine life. Spoilers, they're happy and healthy for now!

    Kotatsu Corner #1 - Cozy on the Mofa

    Kotatsu Corner #1 - Cozy on the Mofa

    Welcome to a brand-new sub show on the Third Impact Anime Podcast; Kotatsu Corner!
    Kotatsu Corner is a mini-sode series where we take a break from our typical, highly organized episodes and just chat about whatever is on our minds. Naturally, most of the things on our minds are anime, video games, books, movies, and the occasional international pandemic. 
    We're hoping to do these monthly, or bi-monthly. We'll see how it goes.
    In this episode, we discuss coping with COVID-19, cancelled conventions, Animal Crossing, FFVII Remake (which we hadn't played yet at the time), the almighty MOFA, and more!
    Please enjoy! Also, this is Tori's debut as an episode editor. Wahoo!
    As always, thanks for listening! Please consider subscribing and sharing this episode with a friend.
    Please continue to take precautions and stay safe during the currently ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
