Episode of
Aniki.fm
Needing a lazy summer show, the brothers decide to watch cute girls doing nothing in a country side that makes them both green with envy with Non Non Biyori Repeat. Following four girls and one boy in a country-town school house, this is a show about living in a questionably rural area when you’re young, imaginative, and suitably silly. Also featuring: Doki Doki Literature Club, Stranger Things, Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?, and Vinland Saga. Haven’t seen this show? Go watch Non Non Biyori Repeat.

86: Smol Mercies (Youjo Senki: Saga of Tanya the Evil)
Episode of
Aniki.fm
The brothers are dropped into the moral and philosophical front line trenches of an alternate World War I with magic artillery and objectivist lolis in Youjo Senki: Saga of Tanya the Evil. After a salaryman is murdered by a subordinate, “god” appears to him and challenges his lack of faith. Esposing the idea that no one need bow to a god in an age of ease and comfort, the salaryman eats his words and is reincarnated as a young girl named Tanya in an alternate timeline where World War I is just beginning. Can Tanya live our her days in ease while still maintaining her lack of faith or will her hubris catch up with her? Also featuring: Tokidoki, Cytus 2, and NOS4A2. Haven’t seen this show?

SP: Waifu War
Episode of
Aniki.fm
One man’s treasure is another man’s trash. The brothers throw caution to the wind and not only divulge their top tier waifus, but pit them against each other to discover whose waifu reigns supreme and whose is utter trash. The rules are simple: list your top eight waifus, put them in a bracket, ????, sleep on the couch alone. The battle of waifu defending commences and the only losers are the two participants. Let us know how bad our choices were and who you would have picked instead on Facebook and Twitter. Like Aniki? Please leave us a review on iTunes so more people can be exposed to our nonsense.

85: El Psyche Kongroo (Mob Psycho 100 II)
Episode of
Aniki.fm
Sometimes the power of friendship is more than just a trope, at least thats what the brothers discover in the second season of Mob Psycho 100. Picking up where the last season left off, Mob Psycho 100 follows Mob’s progression from a self-isolating boy with immeasurable psychic power to a wholesome, well-rounded and more confident boy with immeasurable psychic power. One’s unique take on what it means to wield supreme strength while staying truly human brings a lot of heart to the table in this second season. Also featuring: Steins;Gate, No Game No Life: Zero, Detective Pikachu, and Game of Thrones. Haven’t seen this show? Go watch Mob Pscyho 100 II. Watch before you listen! Like Aniki?
