Join HEMAN493 and Steven (Iceslick) as they do the R&R for episode 11 of Danmachi 2: Adventure and the Unknown.  Note:  Sorry about the connection being bad at the end.

Anyways, this is what he said if you couldn't hear it so well:  HEMAN493: "Overall, I can't believe they dumped an entire light volume into freaking two episodes, it's pitiful, there's so much content you're missing...I had to watch the episode again to summarize it up. I describe it as freaking horrible....There's a lot of stuff I can't cover it up now, maybe in another time we will definitely cover it up. I am so disappointed...a lot of fans are disappointed as well....very, I better see a better episode 12, can't believe this is the end...I am already going to enjoy this. Thank you for listening to my episode about Danmachi. It was definitely a rant. We are looking forward to watching the next episode of Danmachi and Dr. Stone. This new format we are going with R&R is doing two episodes at once. If you like this format please message us at Amino or Twitter, either of us will moderate and answer your questions. This episode was #trash! Anyways, thank you guys for listening, see you later!" Reminder: There are always spoilers in R&R episodes.
