Apologies for my audio issues this episode. Skype decided to reset every setting I had ever set it to, and then when I changed them, I did not restart my recording app, which just remembers the first thing I selected, but does not update to every subsequent thing I entered. I cleaned up some background noise that was going on as a result of me having to really crank up my own audio to make it audible at all, but it still sounds far away and tinny. I can do nothing about this, beyond re-recording all my audio with my good microphone I guess? But I’m not gonna do that. The content is there…albeit poorly.
This episode, we’re talking about Aya Kanno’s Otomen and Riichiro Inagaki (story) and Boichi’s (art) Dr. Stone, both published by Viz Media.
The songs you heard in this episode are “Good Morning World!” by BURNOUT SYNDROMES and “Life” by Rude-α, both from the Dr. Stone anime.
As always, you can find me on Twitter @ImpassionateK, and my co-hosts Helen (@WanderinDreamr) and Apryll (@manjiorin) on Twitter at those places in the parenthesis. You can find both of their writing at The Organization of Anti-Social Geniuses, more of Helen’s writing at Narrative Investigations, and my writing at the Fandom Post.
Read my reviews of Dr. Stone over at the Fandom Post: Volume 1, volume 2, volume 3, volume 4, volume 5, volume 6, volume 7, volume 8, volume 9.
