Jtor AM 16: A major scoop on the Major


Friends don't let friends drive with Koko

I was still nursing a cold and sore throat while this was recorded, while Brittany was apparently off sacrificing small children to the horror gods (it needs to be done before next Walpurgisnacht, don't ask), so Tim, Ben and L.B. handled this episode by their manly selves. The Y-chromosome crew discusses the upcoming Hollywood adaptation of Ghost in the Shell that probably isn't happening unless the actress playing the Major is prepared to take one for the team, the fact that FREE! and Fate Stay/Night are both coming back for new seasons (although not together, which would be amazing), and FFXIII: Lightning Returns apparently has the kind of gameplay where your hands actually do something from time to time. Meanwhile, Ben is relieved that he doesn't have to hear about Imocho even one little bit this week, but the very idea of Koko from Golden Time getting behind the wheel of a vehicle scares the hell out of everyone.

Hi, I'm a former newspaper journalist who got tired of having a front row seat to the death of print. There probably could be some interesting story there about a disenchanted reporter moving on ... more + disclosures
