THIS WEEK: Despite the end of the world and despite Sven’s repeated attempts to drown himself, we take a detour from our detour to get back on topic. In addition, all rocket turtles are automatically Gamera; Sven is very particular about his CGI machine designs; Van shuffles through piles of mythology notes and understands nothing; Dr. Teufel is big bad sad scientist dad gone mad; and, oh hey, is that the script!? (Translator’s note: Teufel means devil.)
CONTENT WARNING: Devilman (and Crybaby especially) has some topics that are sensitive to talk about on the podcast. Notable discussions include violence, gore and dismemberment, sex and sexuality, abusive relationships, a sexual assault/rape scene, suicide, cannibalism, incest, and general navigation of queer (& queercoded) characters and LGBT experiences. Oh, and blasphemy. Lots of blasphemy.
SPOILER WARNING: This podcast episode covers much of the nitty-gritty of Devilman Crybaby, including SPOILERS for the whole run! If you are interested in watching Devilman Crybaby, be forewarned: We can’t discuss it here without discussing the big moments.
THIS WEEK: The Historians are two-thirds back from their sudden disappearance, and have brought a friend on Easter to talk with them about Satan apologism. In addition, Go Nagai is the original horny on main; we try and fail to avoid mentioning Homestuck; Van was lied to on Twitter; Ryo Asuka believes in biotruths; we’re all definitely going to hell; and Devilman died for your sins.
