THIS WEEK: Alexa straight-up abandons Sven and Van to their fate: Continuing their coverage of Kikaider as they face to reality and realize the show has nosedived. In addition, Van’s brain is melting; Komyoji’s cryptidness has only gotten worse; Hanpei is trying, possibly; there’s pockets fulla monkey’s paws; the last episode in this stretch is really really gross; frustrations with romantic dynamics reach a fever pitch, and Sven would rather have nothing.
