Laser Knees 69 – The Nice Guys

We did our best not to make as many of
these jokes as we wanted to.

[Hi, Aleph here!  Iiiiiii forgot to properly enter the scheduled date for this episode to go up; sorry it’s late!]

Dear Listeners, this is gonna be a weird one.

Not only is there some discussion of a mildly insulting attempt to endear us to a character who’s been hecking up on the reg, we also get to try and make sense out of the much-dreaded (though less frustrating than we feared) extra hero.  A wild swing between “cool” and “frustrating” that could make this a very interesting kind of episode of Laser Knees.

Things to look forward to include:

  • Kaneko Kaori’s batting average is less-than-stellar.
  • Power dynamics and a nearly-deliberate misreading and misunderstanding thereof.
  • The power of set design.
  • The power of toy design.
  • Commander Hilltop: still the best.
  • Gangler biology.
  • Solidarity in hating the new guy.
  • Solidarity in disliking Sakuya.
  • Who does Noel remind us of?  The answer might surprise you.
  • Screaming zombie meta-monkey Son Goku.
  • Moments where we realize that it’s difficult to describe aspects of Noel’s activities in ways that don’t sound like innuendo or euphemism.

All this and more on this episode of Laser Knees!!!

No, but seriously, Sakuya.
