One of the smaller shows from last season, we’re back in the “it’s our world but not quite” mode of storytelling in Japan with this offering from Studio Silver Link. Eschewing the standard setup, Anti-Magic Academy 35th Test Platoon goes for a balls to the wall, comedy, horror, sci-fi mashup and serves it up with dollops of drama and ecchi-style humour. It’s just a shame that the length of the show means that we’re not getting answers to some of its questions any time soon.
Sometimes, in the course of doing so, we are confronted by the same questions that every person dreads: why am I alive? What’s my purpose? Who would miss me if I was gone? Add to this the questions that a person who hurt others and regrets it now must also ask: could I have done things differently? Am I causing more trouble by being around than simply going away? Beyond The Boundary has all of these questions and more but we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Hello, and welcome to something called a podcast. We used to do these things, ya know?
In this, the first show of the year, I tackled the GAINAX show, Panty and Stocking With Garterbelt. while Oni takes on the show Demon King Daimao. We also catch up on the time in between and what we got up to in the downtime. Plus, an apology for someone who has never met Oni. Remember, it’s all Oni’s fault.
Thanks to everyone who has stuck with us for all these months! This proves that you love us, you really love us!
Arghh, I need more beer…..
