Recorded in late June, we cover Anime North 2016, held in Toronto, Canada.

Notes:  The convention itself marked the four year anniversary of the founding of the Bastards of Kingsgrave podcast! Like last year, we will be part of a fan panel for A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones at San Diego Comic Con 2016.
