Jtor AM Episode 3: A little restraint would be nice


Is it really so much to ask?

We start off this episode without Ben (since he was apparently too busy conducting a ritual burning of all of his Bakemonogatari merchandise to participate), but he joins us by the time we get to Samurai Flamenco, which is all that really matters. This week we tackle the important questions of our time: is dubbing making a triumphant return to relevance? Did Kill La Kill cross a line? Why does anime have to be so anime all the time? Couldn't it maybe be a little less anime, just sometimes? And is anyone, anywhere, as enthusiastic about anything as Sal is about Kamen Rider Gaim?
