The 90s Anime We Loved, and the RPGs They Created w/ Bob Mackey & Henry Gilbert

This week, Kat and Nadia talk to Bob Mackey and Henry Gilbert about how anime and RPGs uplift one another, RPGs based on licensed anime properties, and the struggle of traded VHS tapes before digital distribution saved us all.

Episode Notes

The only thing you should fear more than the Blood God’s axe is the Blood God’s anime obsession.
