When Cicadas Return

Well Anime Expo happened, and because of that we have quite a few things to talk about. Great announcements from a few of the panels and of course some silly discussions thanks to our kind community to round things out. Unfortunately a few goofy things happened during recording, so we had to cut a bit of our discussion of GATE out. There shouldn’t be any remaining sound issues, but be aware of some slightly odd transitions. Don’t fret however because there will be plenty of GATE discussion during our later Impressions!
