This week we’re joined by special guests cicadas (sorry about that, Anne left her window open) to talk about the latest anime we’ve been watching, the new Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer, and more Monster Hunter X now that Sarah finally has her copy!

About Anne Lee

Also known as apricotsushi. Anne can be written with the kanji for apricot (杏), and sushi was the most quintessentially Japanese thing I could think of when I was 13, resulting in my goofy, albeit memorable, nickname.
