Striding out onto the field with a cocky swagger is a whole new ball game for SOTSM as a one-off idea has swerved wildly into a format wherein we look over baseball episodes in otherwise non-baseball cartoons. Special correspondent Jake De Búrca is called up to serve as somebody with hands-on knowledge of the sport, depicted this time around in a trio of episodes from the world of anime! Dorohedoro #7, BNA: Brand New Animal #5 and Dragon Ball Super #70 form our starting line-up for what we hope is a championship season! Put on a helmet and get in the game!

Deca-Dence takes quite a turn and breaks out the power tools before the hammer comes down on human and cyborg civilisation alike! Fences are mended as BNA closes out, a contractor takes on a lucrative job in The Millionaire Detective, Great Pretender reveals the whole blueprint and we put the screws to The God Of High School! HAH! They didn't say we couldn't put puns in the main body of the text!

Cinemas may be effectively closed for now but that don't mean you can't get some big screen thrills within the safe confines of your own abode! A daring raid on a secret lab in Deca-Dence; a heart-wrenching cliffhanger in Appare-Ranman; the killer is inside the house in The Millionaire Detective; and a homage to the finest E-list acting talent of years past in The Great Pretender. No booking required!

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!
