Amin and Ashley are joined once again by Carly to cover Attack on Titan, the manga (up to early November 2013). We discuss a variety of personal theories and theories from the general fandom, as well as our thoughts on the manga in general. It is an episode filled with Ice and Fire references (perhaps the most ever, the most cringing certainly), creaking doors, and an updated version of our Snakes and Scorpions game for the manga.

Amin and Ashley are joined by Carly to cover Attack on Titan, the anime. We have an extensive aftershow filled with shipping, creaking doors, and a failed attempt to define the scorpions in the snakes and scorpions game. At the end of the very end of the aftershow (~1hour, 24 minutes in), we cover some material that may have manga spoilers (borderline, but there) so heed the spoiler warning there and avoid it if you wish.
As noted in the episode, if you would like to nominate Bastards of Kingsgrave for the Podcast Awards, please do so by October 15th via the nomination form there, under Cultural/Arts. You may fill out what you enjoy about our podcast in the comments box 🙂

The Bastards of Kingsgrave are the illegitimate, off-topic offspring of House Manwoody. We cover anime, manga, and Western animation, as well as a variety of pop culture topics. We've been dubbed the "intersection between A Song of Ice and Fire and everything else." We are also the only podcast currently doing a reread of George RR Martin's earlier works.

Warning: Most episodes are PG-25 and contain references and spoilers for George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, the source material for HBO's Game of Thrones. That being said, there shouldn't be anything comprehensible beyond season 4 of the show.
