Hear short reviews of Mononoke, Kageki Shojo, GoShogun: The Time Etranger, and Lupin III: The Legend of the Gold of Babylon, followed by some discussion of how each of the hosts pick out anime when they’re the secret santa! Topics include: Baki is the only good anime, Lupin without the Lupin, and getting everyone to watch Kill Me Baby.
