Opening: “Baba O’Reilly” by The Who
Ending: “Live for Life ~Ookami no Yoru~” by Aimi

Ben-To takes a premise of what would happen if black friday took place every night at dinner time at your local supermarket for half priced food. Interesting and funny characters combined with great fight scenes make for a decent and watchable show, but the fact that it’s rather short for having more than 12 volumes of content to build off of left the guys feeling rather unsatisfied. Hopefully another season gets announced in the future. The guys talk about the show, explain why this would never happen in america, and speak on Undertakers Wrestlemania loss as well as Toonami’s most recent acquisition. It is a nice show to watch though.

    Funny thing, I listened to this the same day I found out about the boxset going up for pre-order. I dropped this show because there were just too many shows I liked more that season, but I may revisit it.

    Just started watching this and have never wanted someone to get a bento box so badly. “Get the box with the Honor Seal!!!”
