The girls lose their Media Maidenhood and become Media Succubi as we celebrate the most lurid holiday on the calendar...it's hornyween!

Join us for a look at a special franchise that is near and dear to Madiha's heart, and may have become special to Esther too. We're looking at the crossover video game gijinka sensation that sweeped from Japan to America in the early 2010s and has since...stopped sweeping much at all! We're going over the history, the myth, the legends, and the fanservice.

It's our Choujigen Game Neptune/Hyperdimension Neptunia podcast!

No more notes, just listen to it.
