Jumpcast 161: The Worst Nisekoi Ever

That is not hyperbole.

It's Jumpcast 161!  This week, we for some reason discuss lapsed Star Wars fandom (and how The Phantom Menace being bad may have spurred us on to anime), whether Goku was a bad pseudo-person, have it out over Code Geass, and talk about the worst Nisekoi ever.

Jumpcast 158: Malpractice

It's probably better to never really define what surgery can do.

Jumpcast 157: Handcuffed to the Desk

The handcuffs are just invisible and you can't touch or feel them it's fine.

It's Jumpcast 157!  This week, we talk more about Battle of Gods (last time, probably), try to figure out the rules of gravity in ghost world, become quietly resigned to Nisekoi, Greg is told to be quiet while discussing Assassination Classroom, and discuss whether foreshadowing is possible foreshadowing.
