Chainsaw Man has plenty of blood, guts, and monsters but it might be barf that tops its gross-out moments! Why can’t Denji ever get a break? James and Lynzee discuss the newest episode, the coolest moments at Anime NYC, and the return of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury.
The ANN After Show streams live on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter Spaces on Tuesday at 6pm PT/9pm ET. You can listen to the podcast version on Mondays on Spotify, Apple Music, and wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts. The ANN After Show is part of the BLEAV Network.
