Justin, Helen, and TheOASG's graphic designer Alcina devote the entire podcast to all of the winter anime. By the end, everyone just wants to go home...despite already being home.

The OASG PodcastIn a special edition of TheOASG Podcast, we exclusively talk about the winter anime 2018 season.

That’s right. Over an hour of talk about every anime that’s aired this winter…well, almost everything.

While Justin tries desperately to showcase that he watched every anime this season, Helen calls out Darling in the FranXX and just about anyone who’s watching Death March, and special guest Alcina fangirls over Sanrio Boys and an anime involving cats. Helen and Alcina also talk about the one anime Justin isn’t watching in Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card. Justin then recounts the horror of watching Hoshin Engi and Basilisk at multiple points throughout the podcast.

All in all, just about every anime is discussed at some point. Except a few:

Violet Evergarden (streaming on Netflix at a few places, just not in America yet), Seven Deadly Sins S2, The Disastrous Life of Saiki K S2 (Netflix apparently has this???), Fate/Extra: Last Encore, The Seven Heavenly Virtues (these two hadn’t aired yet…and neither of us were interested in it regardless).

…And one title Justin watched that he forgot to mention. He still is irrationally angry about it.
