Opening: Daisuka Ishiwatari – Momentary Life (from the Guilty Gear XX Soundtrack)

For reasons no one can really understand, anime directors and manga authors have a bizarre obsession with Oda Nobunaga. So much material has been made with him in it–if not outright focusing on him–that you could make a genre out of the guy. Luckily, one of the members of the Other Side crew just happens to be one helluva history buff! Can he explain this bizarre phenomena? Also, stay tuned for the tangent extravaganza in this episode, where the boys discuss the origins of Japan and why samurai were pretty evil; lazy trends in anime; a blasphemous sullying of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure; and crazy Code Geass doujins. All this, plus you get to learn what Cody’s “trigger” is!’
