So, uh…we kinda missed the month of March.  Sorry about that, everyone!  Part of being a bad anime podcast means denying our audience a timely show.

Having said that, we have attempted to make it up to you by producing an episode twice as long as the previous ones.  It’s like you’re getting that missing episode here and now.  Yeah, think of it that way!

This episode we dive deep, deeper than anyone should, into the inexplicably popular Elfen Lied.  What did we find?  Mostly sadness, with the occasional moment of unintentional hilarity.  Right, this show is awful, and we rake it over the coals.  I’d like to think that it would be just as funny to someone who hasn’t seen the horrors, but who can say?  I cannot unsee the grease fire I have seen, not even in a hypothetical scenario.

Oh, you might notice the music is different…and bad.  We did that to reflect the nature of the anime we’re “discussing.”  Lotta edge there.
