Anime Ichiban 26: Isekai From the Comfort of Your Home

As the crew settles in for a long period of social distancing they discuss what kind of show they’d wanna be stuck with for all eternity if given the choice. The sheer absurdity of the isekai genre is also put on full display as Kyle and Harry fumble through one of Matt’s schemes.
