Episode 56 of Key Frames, a podcast about anime. In hindsight, it would have made more sense to bring up the atrocities committed by Unit 731 in Manchuria for this episode, wherein the depiction of Chinese people in anime is the topic. Oh well! After they discuss the career of Mamoru Hosoda and the earliest arrival of the fall 2019 season, Ben, Duncan, and Jeff do the best that they can anyway. If you're looking to hear about the decade-old Sword of the Stranger movie, you've come to the right place!
