Just listened to this on the way home last night, was a good episode though I am not sure that even being a passive wrestling fan makes this show any betterusamimi wrote: ↑Sun Apr 21, 2019 6:54 pmNew short ReView ep!

There were a couple of things in the show you sounded a little unsure/confused by so I hope you don't mind me posting here. You mentioned that it seemed weird the leads had a shared residence in the training facility. I don't know how true it is now, but this was typical of larger wrestling promotions in Japan - when students are selected to train in the promotions' dojo, they often are granted room and board in addition to their training in the sport. It is a tradition that comes from sumo.
You also mentioned that Sonoda's designs are very reminiscent of the Dirty Pair. I don't know if Sonoda's design is intentional for the same reason but are you aware of the Dirty Pair's tie-in to pro-wrestling?
All in all, great episode and not a title I would have expected to hear about!
