Aaron Long (Sublo & Tangy Mustard) joins us today to discuss the 2014 Crayon Shin-chan movie, Serious Battle! Robot Dad Strikes Back. Featuring an unexpected Masaaki Yuasa sequence, an extended homage to a musical comedy routine and many, many downtrodden Japanese dads who need an evil robot dad to rouse them up.
Plus: another game of the sensation of the age that is Earlier, Later of Spot On!
Finally, he’s here. Fat Beerus has arrived. Which means it’s once again time to Let’s Go Goku! Also: Oilymatsus, Dad Joke Statues, Snow Eating Bugs, Time Travelling Detectives, Marshmallow Fairies and Inspector Zenigata.
As if we weren’t watching enough for the podcast, we add Erased this week, as we check out the first two episodes. Plus the usual mix of pneumatic ankles, beef jerky, horticultural girlfriends, erotic train encounters, murder and thievery that you’ve come to expect from the weekly anime podcast about weekly anime.
As we mentioned on episode 200, due to being busy with non-podcast activities, something had to give and so here is the first of our lazy, lazy, list episodes! Niall joins us as we run down our Top 10 anime of 2011. (And try to figure out the format of these episodes!).
These list episodes will alternate with regular DITB episodes when we are able to record. However due to conventions and other commitments, some weeks we’ll run classic episodes or guest spots.
For these list episodes our plan is to go back in 5 year intervals and run down our favourite anime from those years until we can’t. After that? You’ll have to wait and see!
What can possibly keep Brian, Dwayne & Niall’s theorising brains busy now Concrete Revolutio has gone on hiatus? Why, a seven minute comedy about a boy band made of plaster busts of course! Plus: Lupin III, erotic marshmallows, giant dogs and uncommon cold cures. It must be another episode of the weekly anime podcast about weekly anime – Let’s Go!
Niall joins us for our first episode recorded this year. We talk about the Goku Midnight Eye OAV series from 1989 directed by one of Niall’s favourites – Yoshiaki Kawajiri. Then we try out a new game format that will hopefully eliminate the low scoring games of old in “Earlier, Later Or Spot On”.
This week’s podcast also marks the first time we have recorded straight from the mixer, hopefully it sounds a bit better and hopefully will sound even better once we don’t have colds and fine tune our levels.
Happy New Year! Happy Old Anime! Dynamite In The Brain and Secret Of The Sailor Madness are back with the weekly anime podcast about weekly anime. And we’ve got 3 weeks of anime to catch up on. So strap yourselves in for punching, barking, running, wanking and attempting to remember the details of 3 episodes of Concrete Revolutio.
Recorded moments before episode 201, it’s episode 202! Bradley & Niall join us to talk about what we liked and didn’t like from Autumn’s batch of anime. Then we cast an eye over the slim pickings of Winter 2016 and try to figure out if there’s anything we want to watch.
Forget your top ten anime of 2015 run downs, we’re here to look back on the year in an ANIME QUIZ format. Anthony faces Niall Flanagan from Secret of the Sailor Madness and Bradley Meek from Anime Now in a contest of podcasting minds, as Brian finds out which of the 3 knows the most about the previous 12 months anime output.
It’s the return of the ALL GAME version of Dynamite In The Brain to start the New Year right!
Merry Christmas! Santa got you a podcast! Bradley Meek of the Anime Now! podcast joins Brian, Niall and Dwayne to cast an eye over a selection of Christmas anime episodes from Read Or Die, Azumanga Daioh, Polar Bear Cafe, Golgo 13 and Gintama. Scheduled guest Elliot Page was stuck on a train somewhere, as was Anthony. Different trains though.
Plus: a festive “bonus” at the end of the episode. Or the audio equivalent of a lump of coal in your stocking.
