Hello everyone and welcome back to another episode of the A-01 Podcast! It’s 2019 which means it’s a brand-new year and that means we have, once again, failed to graduate to Class A-02. It’s fine because it just means we get to sit here and offer our thoughts on the world of anime and manga once again without any hope of moving on into the promised neverland. Maybe if we make it to year 12 of our podcast, we’ll finally move on and bloom into something beautiful.
