Lynzee and James discuss the wild rollercoaster that is Chainsaw Man episode 8. Does Denji do the deed with Himeno? Will Denji ever get the taste of vomit out of his mouth? Are all the Devil Hunters’ lives in danger?
Plus, reactions to the new Super Mario Bros movie trailer, a secret fan art stash, and the foul-mouthed maids of Akiba Maid War play a regular ol’ game of baseball. No crass or crazy shenanigans here!
The ANN After Show streams live on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter Spaces on Tuesday at 6pm PT/9pm ET. You can listen to the podcast version on Mondays on Spotify, Apple Music, and wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts. The ANN After Show is part of the BLEAV Network.
Meet the Hosts!
As executive editor of Anime News Network, Lynzee Loveridge has the unique position of knowing what’s tracking with the critics and with viewers in the anime fandom. She not only writes her own reviews every season but also reads everything from ANN’s editorial staff! Outside of work, she’s just a magical girl living in a Junji Ito world.
James Beckett is one of ANN’s resident series reviewers and he’s never shy to let the world know how he really feels. You can find his impressions of the latest shows in the Preview Guide and well as episode reviews for hit anime series.
Jacki Jing is ANN’s lead video producer and resident punch ’em up fangirl. You can find her binge-watching the latest shonen battle royale series, kicking ass on Twitch, and hosting events from esports to voice actor interviews.
