Join Kyle (Daily COG), Christine (No Mercy Podcast) and Brian (PulpMythos on YouTube) as they discuss one of the most anticipated Anime films of the last 2 years, Mamoru Hosoda’s Belle (Ryū to Sobakasu no Hime). This digital-Isekai aims to use elements of the Beauty & The Beast fairy tale to elevate concerns of grief, abuse, and self-esteem. It doesn’t hit the mark for all of our hosts, but they agree that there is a lot to like here. Enjoy the AVR Belle review!
