Hey, folks!

Back again after some delays due to real life shenanigans (I moved back to America!) but we’re hoping to get back on a regular schedule very shortly here. Our guest this episode is noted Umineko enthusiast, ctom42.

Despite the episode title, we strove to avoid explicit spoilers as much as possible, so that this episode would be safe to listen to for everyone!

Also, we’re looking for more shill segments! If you’d like to raise awareness about your favorite visual novel, just drop us a line on Reddit.
