Betterman is over.

The Media Maidenz grapple with the revelations of episodes 25-26 of Betterman. We have our answers, to some degree. But still, the Maidenz will be Maidenz, and they will ask questions such as: was ANYONE actually infected with Algernon? How much of Evangelion can be found in Betterman? Would the ideology of Juche allow Greater Korea to take over anime? Is Queer Theory over forever? Did Rob Liefeld have a hand in the creation of Betterman Oltos? Is the series ending cute or creepy? Congratulations! Congratulations! Congratulations!

Oh and Madiha's theory is revealed. Ugh.

At any rate, we may never know the truth, because, Betterman is over.

Tune in again! We're starting Selector Infected Wixoss next.

If you listened to all of Betterman anime club, send us some mail! We wanna know what you thought about everything! Send us mail!!!

Guided by the chakra the Media Maidenz tackle episodes 23-24 of Betterman. We're in the home stretch, ready to put it away, but now the world is in the grip of Algernon, and everything is going downright topsy-turvy. Difficult questions continue to arise and difficult answers are nowhere to be found yet, surprisingly. Listen as we ponder: Are any of us human? Are any of us secretly Kankel? Should a pregnant woman do robot battle? Do tuna heads represent the slaughter? Join us and find out!

Outro theme is "Blossom" the theme of the Dual Tribe in Betterman.

Transmediacrity pivots to video game design with the help of YOUR submissions! Games discussed include a piece of productivity software to turn working for (as in, BEING EMPLOYED BY) Google Books into a brutal PVP Netflix experience; a VR Horror Kaizo where reality is the enemy; a "big titty carpg"; Doki Doki Literature Club: Dancing All Night; and the ultimate procedurally generated gacha gun game of our dreams. Also discussed, Madiha's disdain toward the youth, with their loud music and strange hobbies.

I just want to stress this: Gunther Steiner lost his entire team. He didn’t lose 20% of his team. He didn’t even lose 50% of his team. He lost his whole team. Look at what it’s done to him. You can see the death in his eyes, but he keeps on going. This is why Haas is one of my favorite teams.

Topics include: Esther (doesn't) replays Tokyo Mirage Sessions; Megaman Battle Network; the day was saved by a wifi dongle; we'll never escape Persona 5; screaming lunatics; anime episodes that got put off for natural disasters; perfectly recreating a night of TV Tokyo broadcasting; MADIHA TALKS ABOUT FORMULA 1 RACING FOR 1 HOUR, STRAP IN; first we gotta explain World Endurance Championship; COMRADE PASTOR MALDONADO; Madiha is a tifosi; yes I will watch this with you, Queen; solid red car; the Williams cant turn; Toro Rosso; staying up until 1 AM with your girlfriend; THE AMERICAN WAY; Max Verstappen was clowned by an idiot who tells people to suck his balls; the Haas team self-destructs; who wins, the four time world championship winner in the best car on the track, or one sneaky boi; the Fernando Alonso of doing your best; click here to look at a random steam game; how Esther and Madiha met; Madiha, the most valuable officer in the Yuri Free Company; Madiha's journey with heteronormativity and sexuality inspires the young people; commission Velt; RATE US ON ITUNES.

The Media Maidenz have escaped the otherworld and are back with episodes 17-19 of Sunrise's 1999 mecha horror anime, Betterman. These episodes are back to Better-form with new mysteries, new villains and new ways that science befuddles the Maidenz. No stone is left unturned as the Algernon investigation continues and raises new questions. Is Betterman good? Is Akamatsu the best dad of 2006? Are the new Betterman figures a manifestation of Madiha's mind palace onto the real world? Would fetus-eating Peter Thiel be a good Betterman 2018 villain? Is Betterman the vision of the aughts that Esther dreamed of? Are dream sequences cheap? Will Sakura recover from the brutal world wrestling entertainment-style shitikicking she received? If your mirror self told you to square up would they catch these hands? Do you want that meat? Gird your t-cells, grab some amino acids and give it a listen.

The Hinoki Respecters have Logged In.

Betterman episodes 15 and 16 are kind of a dark time folks. At least there's a respite to be found in Miyako, amino acids, and animes MUCH WORSE than this one to put things into perspective. The Media Maidenz follow Miyako's plain language explanation of much of the series' events thus far, muse on how to get Neil Degrasse Tyson and Richard Dawkins to watch and comment on Betterman, adore Yannagi and Kaede's happy cohabitating relationship, and worship the ground Miyako walks on and her every pronounciation of difficult words (explained plainly). Akamatsu is there for like, two scenes. Sakura's life continues to be upsetting, and Lamia saves us from Keita and Hinoki's date with some real Chuuni shit.
