[Editor’s Note: Apologies for the out-of-order numbering! This was originally intended to go up before the midseason review (“Chatty AF 20”), but we had to bump it back due to Otakon scheduling issues. The podcasts will appear in their proper numerical order on iTunes and Stitcher.]

At this stage, we have raised enough money to be able to pay for contributed posts, behind the scenes admin, and audio editing for weekly podcasts. Our next goal is to pay the editors who have worked on AniFem as volunteers since before launch, making enormous contributions for no pay. Help us pay them for their work at a rate of $15 an hour by becoming a patron for as little as $1 a month!

    the next arc is a very strong Farnese centered arc, I think people will really enjoy it (I hear the show is back April 2019)

    I am surprised there was no conversation about Slan, (possitive or negative). She is the only member of the Godhand to show any interest in Guts aside from Griffith, even if it is kind of scary nightmare fuel intrest.

    The series really has evolved a lot since the early days, and I’m glad you guys touched on that. I still enjoy the earlier stuff but I have to say the arrival of Schierke is what for me, marks the turning point of when the series really becomes great.

      Actualy there’s nothing about a next season and i don’t think that will have another because they skip some important characters and things that happen in the beach , before and after..
