He’s back. The seal is back. That’s right, Goma-chan has returned from re-run purgatory with a new episode where he dresses up like a dog. Plus: the final exams continue in My Hero Academia, Alessand continues to be the most pathetic character of 2017, Guru Guru continues it’s break neck pace and Vatican Miracle Examiner continues doing what its doing too.
Dynamite In The Brain has had a strained relationship with Makoto Shinkai’s work in the past, but has he turned it around with the BIGGEST ANIME OF ALL TIME, Your Name? Grace Chan and Niall Flanagan join us to get our thoughts in order about this hit anime film.
Also: Heybot is mentioned and we play a dumb quiz. So a typical DITB episode.
A double dose of fractured fairy tales this week as Vatican Miracle Examiner gets in on Pikotaro’s game with some specially satanic variations of folklore favourites. Plus betrayal in Rage of Bahamut, final exams in My Hero Academia and a boring fight with a sniper in Dragon Ball Super.
It begins! Our chronology of Manga Video’s UK VHS releases. This week Niall Flanagan joins us to count from IWCV 1001 to MANV 1011, otherwise known as Akira to Vampire Hunter D. We still don’t know what, if anything MANV 1010 was, so answers in the comments below. Also, no Feud as yet, but plenty of MANV.
Dwayne and Brian are here to guide you through a week’s worth of anime. Pikotaro is in a hole, Chipmunk tries to murder a frog, the Asakura clan plot their next move, Nina goes to a party, reality comes crashing down on Tatara and Sengoku, Roshi takes the fight to Universe 4 and the Vatican Miracle Examiners solve the case, but open a whole can of worms when they find a secret door!
Anthony and Brian are joined by Niall Flanagan and Ebbie (BizarreJelly5) to run down the highlights and the lowlights of a weekend spent at Warwick Arts Centre in the company of roughly 1500 attendees of Kitacon. We’re not even joking!
You can hear the parody songs that we discuss on this podcast here.
Goku & Hit vs the Pride Troopers? Who will win? Who will survive? And more to the point, what weekly show made Brian throw in the towel and declare his allegiance to 100% Teacher Pascal once more?
Niall Flanagan joins us to figure what sports anime featuring bats or rackets qualify to enter the Famous Anime Podcast’s Hall of Anime Fame.
Brian and Dwayne hold down the fort for this week’s Let’s Go! And I’m writing this description just before I leave for Kitacon, so that’s your lot!
As I rush out the door to Kitacon, enjoy this look at Masaaki Yuasa’s 2014 series Ping Pong The Animation.
