Show Notes:

We kick things off by giving the 2013 YOU DON’T SUCK Award for Best Celebrity Freakout and/or Nip Slip to Adam Levine, who hates America. He narrowly beat out Tiny Fey’s Emmy nip slip and Amanda Bynes’s bong tossing.

BUT ENOUGH OF THAT! Hank’s returned from his harrowing excursion to Walla Walla to talk about Yukito Kishiro‘s Battle Angel Alita v5: Angel of Redemption wherein the title character becomes a singer-songwriter and Zapan stirs things up.

Ido also confronts fellow Tipharean scientist, Desty Nova, who happens to be a few shades crazier and far more volatile.

We discuss the themes at play, with an emphasis Kishiro’s use of brains and how you can basically plug shit into them. We also do our best to get Hank up to speed, considering he spent the past week at the bottom of a slowly-filling grain silo.

Speaking of which, after the end theme Hank and Nick recount the story of how they got Hank out of that deadly grain silo and extracted Cecily from the brainwashing bakery cult. Plus, now that Hank’s safely back in the Alleghenies, he’s got a Teen Center announcement!

Next Episode:
We’ll be back in two weeks to talk about Battle Angel Alita v5 chapters 4-7.
