It’s a jam-packed feedback episode this week, with lots of general news and speculation about the App Monsters announcement. We follow-up on ourselves with some more discussion about whether a setting can be a character and what Digimon could learn about gender from Kill la Kill. And we respond to listener comments about time flow in the Digital World, whether Ryo’s existence is plausible in the Tamers world, portraying strength and showing vs. telling, and the Kazu-Kenta bromance!
