On this episode, join Ed, Kate, and Dennis as they discuss the 1997 prequel OVA series Sakura Wars. Based on the long running Sega game series of the same name, but taking place before the events of the first game, we want to know how well this OVA holds up especially for those who are unfamiliar with the game series. Ed also gives us a deep dive into the series itself along with some historical importance it has on Japanese audiences. We also talk about steampunk mechs, the dual life of a stage performer and soldier, if granny deems you worthy, and comparisons to another Taisho era based anime that involves fighting demons. So put on those fancy clothes, because we're heading to the theater. Enjoy!

It's a jam packed full host podcast with Diana, Sam, Karen, Kate, Garrett, Ed, and Dennis! There is quite a bit that happens in the second half of the Magic User's Club OVA. There's a combo of a beach PLUS hot springs episode, yet it's actually not as ecchi as we'd think! Some insight on the pasts of both Takakura and Miyama. There's also some school hijinks like a festival prep, confession culture, and sneaking in after school is closed. Join us as we discuss the real question that's been on our minds since the start: will Jeff do something? Listen in and find out.
