    fantastic episode with lovely music at the end

    Very nice little side story there - really enjoying this spin off series! Very cool to find some very interesting people to talk to. And not just because this time I didn't spill any beverage of any kind at all!!

    @"Jaffe"#205 - please can you use MANY more Red Dwarf references wherever possible, there's just not enough of them. This makes Mr. Flibble very angry...

    super glad the music was included. i like to think i‘d have looked it up anyway, but the fact it was in there means i now have something new to listen to! i’m a bit picky with music and this stuff goes hard. absolutely love it, thanks to everyone involved in this ep!

    Loving the gaidens. I listen one week early so by the time the thread rolls around I kinda forget but wanted to mention it!

    There is not much I can add, but I loved the music included at the end. I will definitely check out her music

    i think i first heard chibitech in an anamanaguchi mix back in 2014, where they included ‘love is insecurable’. then i looked it up, heard ‘moe moe kyunstep’ and, despite knowing basically nothing about maid cafe culture/dubstep (or even what “moe” really means), it was completely obvious to me that she had a totally unique sound and approach compared to the rest of the chiptune genre (a thing i have not really kept up to date with). nobody else that i can think of got close to sounding as cool as chibitech without relying heavily on sounds outside of the chiptune palettes. MoeNES is just 100% bangers. i love it!
