2D Champions Episode 76: Saga of Tanya the Evil

The Champions are schooled in the horrors of both war and an existential struggle against a powerful deity in their review of the first five episodes of the ‘Saga of Tanya the Evil’ (Yojou Senki). Based on the popular light novel series by Carlo Zen and Shinobu Shinotsuki, ‘Tanya’ gives us the dramatic story of a sociopathic salaryman who finds himself fighting against the fate handed to him by a God that’s hungry for attention and prayer. At once a satire as well as a tale of military tactics, does ‘Tanya’ bite off more than it can chew? Or can it prove it’s worth to the Champions? Listen and find out!

2D Champions Episode 73: Konosuba Season 2

The Champions return to a world full of explosions, giant frogs, and useless goddesses in our review of the first five episodes of Konosuba season 2. The first season of Konosuba was a refreshingly funny hit in the midst of an endless stream of shows featuring the tired trope of a useless nerd boy appearing in a RPG-inspired fantasy world full of cute girls and quests. Can season 2 of Konosuba keep the Champions under it’s spell? Or has this series already used up all of it’s magic? Listen and find out!
