It's back to our usual routine on a -- for once -- regular episode of No Borders No Race. King Baby Duck starts off with a special shoutout to TsuShiMaMiRe's departing drummer, followed by a review of the SpeakEasy Stage Company's production of Hand to God. Our host pushes for fandom status for one of the finest anime comedies in recent memory, and the best damn video game director promises a return of the Nintendo Wii's most beloved anti-heroes. Finally, it's a rekindling of the past, as KBD reviews the new film xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.
