These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Defictionalization: When discussing how disappointing the plot of Yozakura Quartet is, the trio comes up with a webcomic concept called "Balls to the Wall Demon Cop". A few episodes later, they reveal some of their fans are actually working on it.
Ensemble Darkhorse: The hosts HATE everything about Saya no Uta... except for Dr. Tanbo, to the point where they decide that all bad anime would be better if it were part of a larger narrative about Tanbo's fight against the Nurse from Katawa Shoujo.
As for people actually appearing on the show, Leigh Ann Williams has only recently started to appear in the podcast, but despite her limited appearances, she's greeted with acclaim from commenters.
And then again, though to a lesser extent, after the episode "Gaming Feminism", an episode that didn't relate to Zac Bertschy or his website at all, even though two episodes previously, they dedicated about two hours to how much Anime News Network sucks... disguised as an episode about Hitler's numerous appearances in Japanese media and the title of the podcast, written in German, translating to "Terrible News Network".
JesuOtaku has also taken offense at them when they stated that they hated Sinfest.
True Art Is Incomprehensible: A notion that this podcast likes to shed a light on in one way or another, arguing that, most of the time, when a show tries to be "deep", the creators only end up creating heavily convoluted scenarios. Best exemplified in the episode "2Deep4U" as well as their discussions on Wolf's Rain.
