We give our first impressions of Elden Ring, wrap up The Orbital Children and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean (for now), and discuss potential controversy with Ranking of Kings.
We hit a wide variety of topics including the Lucifer and The Biscuit Hammer anime announcement, the latest in Saturday morning kids’ shows, and some backlog we’re finally catching up on. Oh, and I guess some currently airing anime too.
Ikki and Sakura meet up with their childhood friend Ayaka Oketani, who is struggling with her little sister overshadowing her in their mother’s eyes. Things rapidly get worse when the Deadmans arrive on the scene and the two girls are taken hostage.
As Ikki struggles with the idea of joining Fenix and fighting Deadmans full time, the villains make their first move, tempting a downtrodden caddy to turn on his employer.
The world faces a terrible threat in the form of Deadmans, a terrorist cult that aims to bring out humanity’s ‘inner demons’. Fortunately they’re opposed by the government organization Fenix, who possess a secret weapon – Ikki Igarashi, a young man who is able to hear his own inner demon. Together they’ll battle Deadmans as the twin warriors, Kamen Rider Revi and Kamen Rider Vice!
This week on Saber, my patience with this cursed show finally runs out.
The Sword of Logos continue in their attempts to capture Touma, who is also struggling with Yuki’s demand that he be more ruthless and show more resolve in dealing with the Yeti Megid.
WIth the other Riders temporarily beaten back, Touma and Mai attempt to introduce Yuri to modern society, but they’re suddenly confronted by Legiel and the newly transformed Yeti Megid
With the fate of the world at stake, Calibur and Saber clash for a final time. In the aftermath, seeds of discord are sowed amongst the Sword of Logos members.

Sorry folks, it’s just science. Here’s the list, and let us know what you think.
Zigg looks back on a year that soared and stumbled in equal measure, and picks out the stories that shone the brightest.
With the the shield around the portal book weakening, Touma and his allies must confront Calibur and his forces and prevent the dark Rider making his way to another world.
So it turns out Kento wasn’t really dead after all! Ah well, if at first you don’t succeed….
Touma premieres his highly anticipated new light novel “I Can’t Believe My Childhood Friend Died and Also A Clown Was There!”.
Angered and confused by the revelation of Calibur’s true identity, Kento sets out to confront him one-on-one, while the villains plan to ensnare the other Riders in battles of their own.
Halfway through the season we welcome back Gal and Dino, catch up on some other anime trash we haven’t discussed in a while, and check in for another Kamen Rider update.
Determined to confront his father and finally discover the motivation behind his betrayal, Kento recruits Touma and Rintaro for a final showdown with Calibur. The result of their battle is a shocking revelation about the dark Rider’s true identity….
With King of Arthur out of his reach, Calibur plans to seize a new source of power. Meanwhile, Daishinji decides to express himself through music. Also, Durian battles Walnut.
Touma is feeling the pressure of wielding the King of Arthur powerup…for some reason. His indecision leads to Ogami getting turned to stone, marginally improving the quality of his character writing.
