The Gothic comedy action series Soul Eater from studio Bones is one of 2008's shounen blockbusters, set in a school where human weapons and their partners learn to synchronise their souls. BJ and Duffo watch the first 13 episodes and discuss how to start a Zoom call with the lord of death, the least stealthy but most endearing ninja of all time, and getting a blood infection so bad that you go to the Twin Peaks dimension.

The threat of planetary obliteration has upped the stakes for harem anime To LOVE-Ru in the second half, and Rito will need the help of every ghost girl, alien girl, and regular-style girl around him to make it through. BJ and Duffo discuss making an English dub of a mid-00s ecchi comedy 12 years later, helping a pregnant cat assassin give birth, and a marathon for the fate of the earth that involves dodging at least three unique varieties of tentacles.

With a dozen shows successfully under their belt, Endless 08 turns their experienced critical eyes towards some serious cinema: To LOVE-Ru, Xebec's sci-fi harem comedy about a teenage boy who accidentally gets engaged to an alien princess. BJ and Duffo discuss the deep cultural significance of breast-grabbing in Devilukean society, aliens who change gender every time they sneeze, and the most dangerous events to ever be unleashed at a school sports festival.

Sports anime Bamboo Blade is an AIC ASTA production about a high school girls kendo team and the deadbeat teacher who supervises them and occasionally gambles on their success.

ChäoS;HEAd, better known today as the Science Adventure installment that came before Steins;Gate, is a psychological thriller anime from Madhouse that follows a mentally unwell otaku who stumbles into a violent conspiracy with serial killers, brain manipulating radio waves, and people whose delusions allow them to overwrite reality. BJ and Duffo discuss the history of denpa fiction, whether the show acts as effective bait and switch from the typical harem show, and go through the supposed science of Gigalomaniacs realbooting DI-swords.
