PTE2 Episode 2:
Production Committee: How much Brave/GaoGaiGar we can essentially rip off to make our budget overkill episode?
Sunrise: Yes.

PTE2 Episode 3:
Production Committee: How much-cursed ad-lib we can essentially make during a single part of the episode?
Junya Enoki and Yuuma Uchida: Yes.

PTE2 Episode 4:
Production Committee: How many HunterXHunter references we can pull literally on the day before the manga gets back to release - before Shueisha starts to ask us to keep it within copyrights?
Megumi Han and Mariya Ise: YES.

The 1st BD/DVD cover is quite awesome.

First season got Die Hard, and this one is Back to the Future (special got Rambo: First Blood). Keeping in style, PTE.

Episode 4 also had bloopers in the credits… Because male part was voiced by Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung’s Japanese dub actors.

Anyone who needs an explanation of what this show is about only has to watch the first skit of season 2. Intro for a completely different show, an elaborate parody of Kamen Rider intro's then right at the end zooms in on the main characters sitting nonchalantly in the background.

the ad-libbing from Enoki and Yuma Uchida in ep 3 was just great. I still have the "wiener, wiener, wiener" in my head

The ad-lib was so good, I hope more of the VAs go crazy like that. The girls did a little in ep 4 but the boys part of ep 3 was so chaotic i was laughing nonstop.

Thank you for your service, James. May you rest peasfully in your pod.

For me, it's Junya's erratic screaming. I was expecting dialogue like the A-side, but instead... Laughing

Surprised that nobody mentioned Episode 3 did an all-out parody of Dora the Explorer.
For a country that doesn't care much about American/European kids' show (aside from the occasional Spongebob Squarepants), this was surprisingly well done.

King Record's own Youtube channel streams variant cuts of Bobunemimimi/Bob Epic Team segments recorded by the actors/actresses. The only downside is they're up for a week and replaced by the newest episode.

My guess is these will be extra content for the blu-rays, since having the cast also dub the Bobunemimimi segments was another key change in the Season 1 remix.

Imagine hearing Hiyama's Popuko yelling about what a great angle the meteor was falling, only for Morikawa's kick to whiff, but INSTEAD, it's LINK AND SEPHIROTH.

Ok, I'm mostly here for "B Side," which is awesome, but "Train Battle" in Ep. 4 was indeed epic. Plus also too I appreciated the hidden shout out on the Choobus magazine cover.

Wonder what poor James is going to be like once he’s finished reviewing this season…
