Episode 23 of Key Frames, a podcast about anime. Ben, Andy, Duncan, Jeff, and Jon are transformed by power ballads! They fight their way through teenagers investigating mysteries, delicate conversations about bullying, and rational explanations of why Princess Principal is titled what it is. Their final strike is the deepest: a spotlight of the original 1986 Fist of the North Star movie! You are already listening to this podcast.
