King Baby Duck takes a break from chatting about gaming (seeing as he's about to head to E3), and decides to focus his attention on other realms of pop culture. First off a review of X-Men: Days of Future Past amends the errors made in previous X-Men flicks, and an open-eyed opinion regarding an attack on AKB48 has the King make a surprising decision. Then a discussion about how story lines in anime tend to be better than even most live-action American TV shows, followed by an illusion-filled gaze at the American Repertory Theater's production of The Tempest.
