In this Sound-byte Sefran has the floor and continues his mini-series coinciding with his 'Anime Project 365', where he plans to watch an episode of anime every day for the whole of 2020 in an effort to catch up with shows that have passed him by.

This time, it's the 2010 anime based on the light novel series Durarara!!(!)

We're continuing our anime-themed Octal FM series! Sefran has watched anime for most of his life, but Jalada has watched almost none. We're changing that. This time, Jalada has been watching Big Windup!, also known as Ōkiku Furikabutte, or Ōfuri.

Sound-bytes are our shorter episodes about what we’ve been up to recently. Sefran is a big fan of XCOM so it's no surprise that he picked up the new installment on launch. Here's his thoughts so far.

093: Animal Isolation Island

We've been playing a lot of Animal Crossing: New Horizons whilst socially distancing, and so it's definitely about time for our hot take.
