S6E6 – No Scare… Care! (KH3 Part 5)

We're back from a short internet-problems break to talk about Monstropolis, a world in which Sora and friends walk forward through a series of hallways! Fortunately, the hallways are occupied by our favorite scary guys from our favorite scary company to keep us scary company. All things considered, it's pretty good, and someone gets comically hucked through a door! Uh oh! This episode starts with Sam talking about a leak in the ceiling, and it turns out that leak might be a much bigger problem than was apparent at the time. If you don't hear from us for a while,…

S6E5 – Flynn Onceler (KH3 Part 4)

Welcome to Kingdom Hearts Untangled, our Tangled recap recap podcast where we recap a recap of Tangled! All things considered, it's still a pretty fun world despite very literally being "Sora, Donald, and Goofy watch a Disney movie." Even one of the least interesting villains in the series can't drag this one down! Sam | Drew | Twitter | Cohost

S6E4 – You’ve Got an Enemy in Me (KH3 Part 3)

It's a great week for Kingdom Hearts 3! We're heading to one of the best worlds in the series: Toy Box! We're missing a lot of the Toy Story toys, for reasons that will be explained/stupid, but that's okay. We've got everything we could possibly want: Woody roasting Xehanort, Rex being a gamer, Sora piloting a mech, and the army guys being slightly too real. Also, a commercial for the game that Nomura wishes he could make if he wasn't busy doing this! Sam | Drew | Twitter | Cohost

S6E3 – Somehow, Xehanort Has Returned (KH3 Part 2)

In this bistro-centric episode, we're returning to Twilight Town, the chillest town in the Realm Between, and catching up with the Other Sea Salt Trio: Hayner, Pence, and Olette! So much has happened with these three in the past [???] days or weeks or months, and Sora can truly relate to them now that he has a phone. Scrooge is also here, and he's got an Unnamed Rat in his employ! This looks like a good spot to try to say "ingredients" in Donald Duck voice! Sam | Drew | Twitter | Cohost

S6E2 – The Detesters of Woody (KH3 Part 1)

The third Kingdom Hearts begins here! We've finally made it to the most recent game in the series besides Dark Road and Melody of Memory and also the rest of KHUX that came out after this! Our journey begins in Olympus Coliseum, a world whose name should probably be changed at this point. There's no Coliseum in Olympus this time around, and maybe that's why it's actually pretty great for a change! After that, we're checking in with Rickey and Miku in the Realm of Darkness. Will they manage to find and rescue Aqua? We're only 45 minutes into a…

S6E1 – Large Adult Darksides (A Fragmentary Passage)

We're back from our break and entering the Unreal Era with [checks notes] Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-, not to be confused with A Fragmentary Passage from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep! -A fragmentary passage- picks up right where A Fragmentary Passage left off, with Aqua having bad times in the Realm of Darkness. Will Mickey Mouse help her times become good, or will he, instead, not? This is the one with the shirt. Sam | Drew | Twitter | Cohost

S5E5 – Capital-D Darkness (Union χ Part 1)

The true KHUX begins here! After last week's tragedy, we could all use a bit of levity in our lives, so actually there wasn't a tragedy last week. Problem solved! This week, we'll be meeting some new friends, not meeting some new friends, and meeting some not new friends. Classic Kingdom Hearts stuff, in other words. This episode introduces a lot of questions and mysteries, but you'll have to wait patiently for answers, because after this we'll be taking a few weeks off, then following release order with the very short A Fragmentary Passage, and the much longer Kingdom Hearts…

S5E4 – Aced’s House of Bricks (Unchained χ Part 4)

Thinking about the Power Bangles too much made us both sick for a few weeks, which is a shame because now we're back to talk about the end of Unchained χ and apparently the Power Bangles are more important than ever! What is this game?! To make matters worse, the end of the world is happening. Oh, come on! Well, that's it for KHUX. We'll be back next time to start the sequel, KHUX! Sam | Drew | Twitter | Cohost

S5E3 – The Dark Anniversary (Unchained χ Part 3)

As we enter the second half of the first half of KHUX, we meet a new friend, Skuld, who is bringing back belts in a big way! We'll need her emotional support, because things are not great in Daybreak Town. The Foretellers are fighting, Chirithies are turning purple, and we're finding more and more that Kingdom Hearts is not afraid to kill kids as long as they're offscreen and we don't know them. We've got a new piece of light jewelry, but will it be plot-important enough to undo the darkness done by the power bangle, or was Chirithy just…

S5E2 – Hi, Chirithy. Hi, Chirithy. (Unchained χ Part 2)

This week in Daybreak Town, our boy Dennis is feeling lonely. It turns out it's hard to make a lot of friends when you're not allowed(?) to talk to 80% of the people around you! Fortunately, he meets a nice(?) boy named Ephemer who breaks the rules(?) and they become fast friends. Is everything as it seems? Or is everything not as it seems? Also, make sure you pay attention we've got some plot-critical bangle shenanigans this week. Sam | Drew | Twitter | Cohost
