After being gone for two months, we begin with Mike giving a first impression of Oomomo, the newest entry in the trend of 100yen shops and Japanese retailers in the Toronto area (4:50). Then we take another look at the Funimation/Crunchyroll split and the broader story of what’s to come in streaming services (16:06). After sparing a thought concerning the Overwatch League (1:01:55), we do the official return of the Bullets Segment (1:06:18). In it we talk about Evangelion and Netflix (1:06:58), the live action Cowboy Bebop and Netflix (1:18:48), the reboot of the Fruits Basket anime (1:33:14), the missed items on the Toronto Anime Community Calendar (1:38:01), the Toronto International Fan Festival (1:51:01), and the Reel Asian Film Festival (1:59:14). Then we end off with some thoughts Fred Patten, John Rogers, and Stan Lee, who all passed away around the same time back in November (2:11:33)

Listeners will no doubt pass out before the end of this episode. The question is will it be because of alcohol poisoning, or boredom

Mike Nicolas, James Austin, Kevin Ng, Mohamed Sharmarke
