Episode 52 of Key Frames, a podcast about anime. It'd be so easy to make fun of the tropes of shounen battle anime in this description, but we're better than that. Ben, Duncan, and Jeff don't need to fight in order to reconcile their differences and become friends. Instead, they celebrate those differences as they discuss the beginning of the summer 2019 anime season and their topic for the month, shounen battle anime. Believe it! Sorry, couldn't resist.
