Vatican Miracle Examiner is this week’s best anime as the first arc draws to its explosive conclusion. Meanwhile the battle with Stain draws to a close in My Hero Academia, another 7 entrants get eliminated in Dragon Ball Super and a pretty good pun falls afoul of clumsy translation in Bono Bono. All this and more in another episode of Let’s Go, the weekly anime podcast about weekly anime!
We failed to get to the Genocidal Organ screenings last month, so we needed an equivalent replacement. What better replacement than 1988’s My Neighbour Totoro? What’s more, our guest Grace Chan did see Genocidal Organ so we can find out how they compare.
Plus a game of “Neighbours” and Anthony’s Neighbour The Lambton Worm…
This week Dragon Ball Super hits episode 100 and Kale goes berserk. Plus, Stain faces down two of UA’s finest in My Hero Academia, we agonise over an anime-only joke in Guru Guru and try and figure out what we thought of the debuting The Reflection.
Last week we looked at Little Witch Academia. This week, Niall and Dwayne help us pass judgement on Luna Nova Academy’s predecessors. It’s time to figure out which Witch makes it into the Famous Anime Podcast’s Hall of Anime Fame?
Brian has a new mixer, so we’re sounding better than last week. We add Magical Circle Guru Guru to the new anime we’re watching. Vatican Miracle Examiners continues to delight with its schlock. And we talk a lot about a blink and you’ll miss it scene that makes us question whether or not to continue with Made in Abyss. Plus, Stain lays out the law, Krillin takes to the spotlight, Nina and Jeanne go to heaven and Kanemori Steve’s dog tracks down Pascal.
Come along and hang with the Let’s Go Gang, as SOTSM and DITB team up to tackle Netflix Original anime, Little Witch Academia Season 1. At last! It’s an episode by episode run down of Akko’s antics at Luna Nova Witch Academy.
If it wasn’t for the need to keep the continuity of episodes we are covering up, I’d have skipped posting this. We had a bunch of audio problems and then further problems with the recordings. What we have left is the best I could put together. I’ve heard worse, but feel free to give it pass if it’s too annoying.
Anyway, we watched a bunch of new stuff like Vatican Miracle Examiners, Made in Abyss and Welcome to the Ballroom.
The moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. The Tournament of Power begins! Way back at the start of February, the Zen-Oh’s decided to have this tournament, and 20 episodes later the first punches are thrown. Meanwhile, Rage of Bahamut Virgin Soul reaches its mid-point as an ancient weapon is unleashed on the Gods. Tiger Mask W takes a victory lap and makes a back door pilot for Masked Tiger Springer. And we discuss the origins of folktales with this week’s Goma-chan.
Will it be third time lucky for a Gantz adaptation? We find out as we watch 2016’s GANTZ:O. Adapting the “Nurarihyon Alien Mission” arc into a one-off (?) CG movie, can they stay true to the heart of the comic, while making it accessible? Or will this miss the nihilistic magic of manga once again?
On this week’s Let’s Go! we take a walk in the rain with Goma-chan. We meet 70 characters who we hope will all eventually get names in Dragon Ball Super. The gang break out of jail in Rage of Bahamut. Tiger Mask W reaches a climax and we say farewell to The Laughing Salesman and the hapless invaders from Makeruna!! Aku no Gundan.
