Anime Is Weird, Episode 4 – Makura no Danshi (Pillow Boys!)

Anime Is Weird, friends! We may have found the weirdest one by far. Or at least the creepiest. Find out what keeps us awake at night….

Join our heroes Stan, Andy, Chris AND special guest / friend of the show, Ryan, as we try to figure out the secret lore of Makura no Danshi (Pillow Boys!) without us losing our sanity in the process. Tread carefully and sleep tonight with a baseball bat – things are going to get really really weird.

  1. Yeah, the pillow boys anime was weird. I checked it out on Crunchyroll and just couldn’t quite figure out who the audience for such a show would be. That’s what I like about anime though. It covers pretty much every genre and audience you can imagine and then a few you can’t.
