Episode 236 - Beauty and the Beer

In this week’s episode of the AoD Podcast, we have the return of our Three Episode Rule for the Winter 2022 season, featuring Tokyo 24th Ward, She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man and Sasaki and Miyano. Is the winter season of anime up to snuff? Come and find out! Paired with these first impressions is a special smoked lager from Fort Point Beer, the Manzanita Rauchbier. But we can’t end this episode without talking about Mamoru Hosoda’s latest anime film Belle, now airing in U.S. and Canadian theaters! This tale as old as modern times is an interesting Beauty and the Beast inspired take on our ever increasingly connected world of living in anonymity. Want to know if you should watch it?
