It’s time once again for the Anime Research Society to explore the depths of anime – the good, the bad, the absolutely insane. Join them as they take a look at some of the best and worst of the season and some recommendations to lead you on your research journey.
This week, Cole, Remington, Lisa, and special guest Brendan Frye explore the first three insanely dense episodes of Hakata Tonkatsu Ramens. This light novel, turned manga, turned anime centres around the seemingly peaceful district of Hakata in the city of Fukoka. But all is not as it seems, as it’s underworld is teeming with assassins, detectives, and revenge seekers who work there and cross paths in rather unconventional ways. Join the ARS team as they try to keep track of this one and its many…many…MANY storylines.
The team dole out a few of their favourite anime from past seasons to check out. Finally, the team is stumped over a mysterious (and frankly, a little ridiculous) anime summary.
The Anime Research Society is available every Wednesday. Tune in and don’t miss a minute of the fun!
