Martin Schneider of Breaking Mayberry goes back to school with us on a very special episode of SOTSM, where we all learn a valuable lesson about this early work from animation auteurs Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Now well-renowned as curators of comedy both cartoon and corporeal, Clone High featured a decidedly unique premise that deftly married their love of historical humour and angsty teen drama. With a revival of the series imminent on Comedy Central is there anything present in the past worth carrying on into the future? Hunger strikes, deep Conquistador cuts and our best(?) John F. Kennedy impressions make the grade, earning us a well deserved Post-Podcast Repaste from the school canteen!

Co-incidentally Niall actually got a haircut just prior to recording (not that you'd know as he broadcasts secretly from a non-extradition country, of course) but you can still see Dwayne and Brian's fabulous faces if you remember to tune into the video stream! Otherwise you can hear us all talking about some other cartoons cleaning up their act, such as Super Shiro doing the laundry, dirty cops getting rinsed in The Millionaire Detective and the gang enjoying some downtime at the public baths in Appare-Ranman. Just a trim please!

Everybody's got a fresh look going on this time, whether it be a rhino scientist whose been hitting the gym (and the experimental mutagenic substances) in his spare time in BNA or a fourth magical girl rounding out the team in Healin' Good Pretty Cure. A trio of other main characters endear themselves to the crowd before getting trounced by the actual main characters in God Of High School, and Super Shiro lays down some serious beats (and sound effects, and incidental music). The Great Pretender makes a strong debut also, spinning a yarn of con-artists and cross-cultural crime so convincingly we gotta hope it ain't pulling a fast one on us. Don't take rhi-NO for an answer!

Yo fish, what are you in for? Us? Well we're looking at a two hour stretch in the joint for any number of anime related crimes: attempted assassination in The Millionaire Detective, impersonating a known felon in Appare-Ranman, establishing a sham religious organisation for tax evasion purposes in BNA, or posing too many actual quandaries about the nature of existence in Super Shiro. You're going away for a long time pal!

A wave of nostalgia washes over us as we recall the good old days when you were flung from a cliff as a baby to prove your worth as a warrior. They were hard but fair, and we shall do likewise to our slate of titles, including our most traumatic backstory yet in Fruits Basket, the new DLC for Deca-Dence and two young men punching their feelings into each other in God Of High School (such is the Spartan way!). FYI, if you like white fluffy dogs named Shiro then boy is this recording jam-packed with them!

Yeah, let's! What's the worst that could happen? All those independent journalism websites did it and most of them are... now closed down forever?! The sorry state of the internet due to the advertising industry's death grip is not lost upon us in this audio-only instalment of Let's Go, but we won't be resorting to such drastic measures as live-streaming a hostage situation to redress our woes. Nor shall we rig a baseball game, engineer a sham marriage or invade a neighbouring village, or will we~~? Still available on analogue formats in selected counties!
