This episode came out almost a month ago, but I realized we never posted show notes for it. My bad!
In this episode, Tobias, Tori, Sully, and Edwin (of Mid Shelf Gaming) review Science Saru‘s enthralling tribute to the creative process in Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! Directed by the hit-after-hit director, Masaaki Yuasa, who announced his retirement shortly after the series wrapped up. Get some rest, sensei! You earned it.
