Our in-depth discussion and review of the first chapter of Tri is finally here! In our biggest episode yet, we run through all the things we loved and hated, and dig deep into Taichi’s new struggle, forgetting memories, and Platonism.

We’re also announcing our first Podigious Tri Giveaway Extravaganza, where you can win Tri prizes that we collected in Japan! There are lots of different ways you can enter the contest, and you can do several of them to increase your odds. Here’s how you can enter: link.
