Closing remarks 

Joules – Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma.  This is a funny high school anime with cooking battles that are as intense as what you’d see on Naruto.  Chock full of accurate food facts, rivalries, grudges, and exploding clothes.  But the neat thing is that you can watch each character, young and old, grow and evolve with each experience.  There is a pretty prominent ecchi component early on, but it simmers down later in the series and is used for great comedic effect.  You can stream this on VRV/Crunchyroll

Guard-a-manger- Aside from the obvious Empty Thrones Kickstarter and the EDSG Podcast, I would say that you should gather some inspiration from Gargoyles! Available on Disney+, this is one of the seminal works of 90s Cartoons that can serve as nonstop inspiration for storytelling to this day! 

Josh – Agents of SHIELD. The final season with a gonzo filled unabashedly fun season of time hopping adventures!
