Everyone say “PUGI!” as we join the cult of Dvorak on Classicaloid. Plus, Kale and Caulifla take on Goku, Inuyashiki takes flight and we finally learn about werewolves in Blood Blockade Battlefront.
Lewis Smith joins us today to talk about Yoshiaki Kawajiri’s 1988 adaptation of Demon City Shinjuku by Hideyuki Kikuchi. Better known to people of a certain age as the Manga Video release Monster City.
What are our memories of the OVA? Does re-watching it in 2017 destroy said memories? And what did Anthony think, coming to this fresh? Find out, on this barely themed Halloween episode of DITB!
This week on Bonobono, the gang invent a new game and handily give us this week’s podcast title. Plus, Kukuri runs wild, Vegeta makes a pledge, and Hiro Shishigama talks comic books. If you’re looking for seals making cakes or masturbating cavemen, you’ve come to the right place. And that place is Let’s Go!
Light Novel-based Anime, there’s been an awful lot of them in the past 15 years, but where did they come from? We go back to the Eighties and decide which of these early examples of one of modern anime’s most reliable crutches can truly be called Famous?
We’ve taken all that we can takes and we can’t takes no more. That’s right we kick Welcome To The Ballroom out of the Let’s Go Gang hideout and then foolishly invite two more shows to take its place. Ancient Magus’ Bride and Inuyashiki. Hey, at least we know that when Inuyashiki does something unpleasant and tasteless it’s going to be in keeping with the tone of the thing.
Anthony and Brian go to the cinema 275 miles apart to see the first of Masaaki Yuasa’s new films – The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl. The creative team from Tatami Galaxy return with another tale of the hunt for that rose-coloured campus life.
Brian, Dwayne and Niall knuckle down and watch an excess of new anime, plus all the continuing shows. What makes the cut for next week? Find out on this bumper episode of Let’s Go! the weekly anime podcast about weekly anime.
Dwayne and Brian take advantage of the mid-season lull to get 7 episodes of Bono Bono watched. Plus My Hero Academia and Rage of Bahamut Virgin Soul have their finales, Dragon Ball Super and Shonen Ashibe have a week off and Ninja Girl & Samurai Master might have ended. We weren’t entirely sure.
Our chronology of Manga Video’s UK VHS releases continues! This week we count from MANV 1012 to MANV 1027, otherwise known as Lensman to The Professional: Golgo 13. We still don’t know what the Feud in the title is, but as always we have plenty of MANV.
As the season winds down we say farewell to two series this week. Pulp priests Vatican Miracle Examiner and Anime Iconoclast Heybot bid us farewell.
Meanwhile, Frieza shows us there’s no I in TEAM, Kaisar tries to stop a war, Nike and Kukuri become thieves and Mary Jane Watson shows up.
