Ikari Strain #5 - Yay or Nay: Discord Directories
Since we opened our Discord server (shameless plug; link in description), we sought out Discord directories to promote the community. Case in point: Disboard. After a recent issue that should have had a closer look upon execution, it could have gotten our server and myself deleted from the service. We weigh in if Disboard was to blame, or if it’s just the way of this sad world.

Ikari Strain #4 - Artesian Builds...Did...WHAT?!
So glad that the Ikari Strain series was created for discussions such as this! In case you haven't heard, a now-defunct Custom PC company called "Artesian Builds" went under due to a Livestream fail, where the CEO publicly announced who is worthy of winning their giveaways based on numbers. I rant about this being a terrible idea, in addition to how it hit too close to home as a victim of gatekeeping as a content creator.

Ikari Strain #3: How Long is Too Long of an Anime Series?
In this episode, Sanjo-chan talks about the ideal episode length of an anime series. We have the common 12 episode anime length as an "entry level", followed by the 24 episode variety (or 12 episodes split into two parts). Lastly, we have the uncommon 52 episode offerings. But when one should be considered lucky if their favorite anime are either Dragon Ball, Naruto, and One Piece from the very beginning. "Ikari Strain" are special episodes within the Centaku Media Podcast where one topic is chosen and ripped apart in criticism in hopes of reaching those who can relate to the problems riddled within. Show Notes Addendums: Apologies in advance! I was so excited and recorded this episode on a whim, so there are a few inaccuracies when the episode counts are mentioned. However, this is what the show notes are for! While it may be an episode or two off, these are meant to prove the point of the discussion. Danganronpa: 13 episodes instead of 12 mentioned Cowboy Bebop: 26 episodes instead of 24 mentioned Fullmetal Alchemist (2003): there are 51 episodes total Dragon Ball (franchise): if you add Dragon Ball (153 episodes), Z (291 episodes), and Super (131 episodes), there are a total of 575 episodes One Piece: the previously aired episode was #981 by the time of recording (7/6/2021), confirming the mentioned count 🎭 Review, Like, and Share the Centaku Media Podcast! 🎭 If you enjoyed this episode of the podcast, be sure to express your feelings with a Like or a Review on your favorite podcast platform!
