Episode 242 - Spring Previews!

As the cold weather of winter fades away, and the bears wake up from hibernation...there's nowhere for you to run. Luckily for you, the AoD Podcast is here while you hide in your home from said bears, allergens and bees! It's time for us to look at what the Spring season has in store for us this year, and there's a whole slew of returning giants mixed with promising new shows. Our glasses are filled with beers as sweet as the nectar that the hummingbirds will be feasting on once the spring flowers bloom (in you). We've got two "sweet" ales from Boulevard Brewing and Imprint Beer Co., the Cinnamon Bun Ale and the (Ehh)SB Maple Granola Extra Special Bitter. It's nigh time for those sakura petals to bloom and fall in the land of the rising sun, which also means it's time for some spring anime fun! 00:00:26 Intro00:02:28 Boulevard Brewing Cinnamon Bun Ale and Imprint Beer Co.

For our anime pairings, we wrap up our OreShiri for Macross Delta with a large serving of deculture to make you question what is even happening in our collective hive-mind. But that's not all...we wrap up the month of February with our thoughts on what's been worthwhile to watch this season (spoiler alert, not much), but the recent news about low paying gigs for talent working on Crunchyroll productions will surely be an interesting topic to discuss! 00:00:26 Intro00:05:14 Trademark Brewing Max Attack!

On this episode of the AoD Podcast, we wrap-up our thoughts on January 2022's anime and have a sour beer from Eagle Rock Brewery, the All Together Gose! Are our thoughts on this anime season just as sour as this gose? Who knows? We do have a worthwhile topic to discuss with what looks like souring opinions on anime creators: how much criticism is too much for the creators and is the current anime season format to blame?
