Gian starts the conversation talking about his academic development from childhood and how media nurtured his love for academia growing up. They begin by raving about Cells at Work and the effective ways it mixes Medical Theory with the energy and explosiveness of a shonen anime. Then we talk about how Anime contributed to our religious education as children raised in Catholic households. Josue then talks about Food Wars and how it blends culinary art and science in a way that is fun and engaging. We then talk about other anime that spark our love for specific academic fields. Josue ends with a mention of Hentai and informal sexual education.
