This installment of the shows pairs well with either a spring bottled red and a steak, done to your specifications but if it’s well done you should know you’re a heathen.

Tim pulls out a Tezuka creation from the vault, Magma Taishi or Ambassador Magma.

Weltall then tackles a request by an emailer who believes it would earn a higher rating. It’s Persona 4 which appears to be faithful to the game.
