Shadon found another unusual recording on his hard drive, this time of an anime he once watched one episode of and thought was rather rubbish. However, galactic tyrant, he of a thousand mandibles and gacha game enthusiast Zyvox the Unyielding saw the whole of Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne through. If you’re ready for true terror, join Zyvox this Halloween as he discusses Mnemosyne and things such as ketamine drugged voice actors, incredibly questionable sex scenes and the most useless male lead character in anime ever. Also, Zyvox discusses brain mass, what anime has scientifically proven and reveals what to him constitutes true, unrelenting horror.

Shadon’s Postscript:

Rin is arguably worse than Mouse and might be the subject of proper discussion one day. For now, I feel tainted that I ever watched it full, and no amount of Imperial Leather will ever make me feel clean.
