This time the hosts review two series adapted from a much older source material.

First, John talks about the comedic interpreation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet called Boarding School Juliet, and why that show did a surprisingly good job at delivering a fun spin on the storied tale. Then he and CC discuss the adaption of 1985's gritty crime drama Manga Banana Fish, and try to nail down why, after a strong start, that series falls completely apart by the end.

On this rapid fire review outing of ABF, John and CC discuss three short-form Anime series. First John introduces us to the neurotic crew of Space Battleship Tiramisu. Then both hosts buff up their cooking skills with the Fate/stay night spin-off Today's menu for (the) Emiya Family. And after that John wraps up the show by talking about the relatable retail misadventures of Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san.
