The Subtle Doctor and Shadon grab their mics to discuss a recent anime (shocking I know!) named Orange, which aired in the Summer 2016 season.
Orange is a show that broaches a topic often not discussed in media or fiction: suicide. It’s mature and sombre depiction of the matter is worth praise and discussion, although the show isn’t without its flaws (Shadon in particular almost had an aneurysm at one point).
So join us with this bonus slice of Warui Deshou as Doc and Shads discuss Orange in depth and offer their thoughts both on the serious and the silly moments of the show, and of how we all can learn from it to be more open with each other and that there is always help out there for those traveling a darker road.
