Every week, a bunch of pretentious wise guys sit around and review the latest anime. Sometimes it all ends up making sense, but sometimes it doesn't. These...are their stories.

Customer Reviews

Great podcast for anime watchers.

Bakacast will keep you up to date on the latest anime, as they come out in Japan. In many ways this actually helps me keep up on recent shows that I get behind on because I don't want them to spoil it. Overall, this is for people who are watching current anime foremost, to a degree. If you follow only English-translated anime, the shows they discuss will be way off your radar. They also supplement their reviews with an older show, so you get exposure to gems you may have missed.

In terms of the reviews, I find them fair and diverse. I don't always agree, but they're neither trolls nor ideologues and have justified opinions. The reviewers/hosts have differing backgrounds and this is reflected in how they perceive the shows. I find the hosts to be well spoken and interesting. I know I'm listening to a good podcast when I sit there wishing I could be there chatting with them too. As for their knowledge of the subject, clearly, we have rather experienced viewers (with diverse histories of watched anime series), so for newer anime fans, some of the allusions they make might go over your head. For more in-depth fans like myself, I like that they know their stuff and can relate series, characters, tropes, etc. from new series back to a lot of their roots.

In terms of format, I enjoy the pace - I don't always have time for an hour of off-topic discussion and I'm glad they get to the core of their material efficiently and don't overdo it. All the same, the discussions do get off-topic at times, but it's usually interesting and semi-related to the topic at hand. Otherwise, most of the off-topic stuff is at the end, fuelled by listener question.

Overall, it's a great companion to keep up on the current season while still being entertained and learning more about anime in general.
