Chic Pixel Plus Episode 43 – Pretty Good, Pretty Good

Bob's Magical Chainsaw screenshot

In the first episode since we ditched our strict podcast format, Anne realizes she says pretty much the exact same thing at the beginning of every episode, and Sarah helps make a game in her spare time! In the news department, we’re all about centaur Kickstarters and the fuss over high-profile video game reviews. Sarah talks about two rad manga, Anne watches the Danganronpa 2 stage adaptation (??), and App Attack makes its grand return with both hosts playing Granblue Fantasy. Finally, Sarah shares a strangely positive izakaya experience in Nippon Neighborhood Watch!

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.
