68: The Magic Effervescence of Athena Asamiya

How many versions of Athena Asamiya’s theme can you listen to before you give up? Is Athena the businest high school student this side of Laura Palmer? Is this whole episode an April Fool’s joke? You better run if you are bad!

Check out YouTube compilations of Athena’s theme by Silent Aswang and Geltonz, both of which helped me do this episode.
