It’s the third and final part of my guest appearance on Josh Dunham‘s Senpai Coast to Coast podcast. We finish up our discussion of Bakemonogatari by delving into the Tsubasa Cat arc, paying special attention to the series’ twelfth episode. I truly enjoyed doing this podcast with Josh. He was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I hope he’ll have me back in the future.
