Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to another Monday and another episode of The Downpour Podcast!

Since last you heard the likes of Randy, Jonathan and Jared, some interesting things have happened. How did the three hosts react to the influx of Kingdom Hearts news from D23? What myriad of games has Randy been playing while recovering from being sick? What myriad of anime has Jared been watching while down for the count as well? Listen to this episode to find out how they roll.

…Feel like we’re forgetting something? Right, expect a little Pokemon talk on this week’s show. Not only does Jared discuss Pokemon Origins, but listen to find out how badly Jonathan has been affected by the release of Pokemon X&Y. Has he really been playing the game for over 50 hours since its release last Sunday? Jonathan doesn’t spoil the story or anything about the game beyond new features, but (those looking to remain spoiler-free) be wary of 1:02:03 to 1:05:00 where various creatures and their Mega Evolutions are mentioned.

In the anime section: Jared discusses the fall anime season, as per his fantastic impressions article seen below, Jonathan and Randy discuss Devil Survivor 2: The Animation, and…Jonathan has finally seen Attack on Titan. What’s more to say? Listen to find out!
