This was originally planned to be episode 98, so that our preview would actually preview shows before they started. Alas and alack, that was not to be, but hey, some of these shows haven’t started yet.
Bradley C Meek joins to talk about how our picks from the Spring season held up and what Summer shows we are looking forward to. Plus Texhnolyze Episode 2 is our Weekly Retro Recap, and we have play a round of “When Did People Give A Hoot About?”.
Please leave your comments about how Brian is wrong about Attack on Titan & Flowers of Evil below. And your complaints about how you can hear his loose windshield clunking and clicking through the episode.
That will be sorted out for next week’s glorious 100th episode of DITB!
Unless a miracle of licensing happens this is it, our final Gag Manga Biyori podcast. We cover series three of Akitaro Daichi’s adaptation of Kosuke Masuda manga and then we answer a few twitter questions. Which leads to Anthony saying the sort of things that normally get edited out. But this time they’ve been left in as a “treat”, so direct your complaints at @AntAskew.
Oh and there’s a Weekly Retro Recap, this week it’s the hard to remember how to spell, Texhnolyze Episode 1.
Ebbie aka BizarreJelly5 joins us today to talk about her favourite TV show of all time, Kino’s Journey. Brian and Anthony have never seen it before, so find out how they react to this tale of a girl and her talking motorcycle.
Brian has heard of another show with a talking motorcycle, so we also talk a little about the failed pilot Heat Vision & Jack.
Plus he tests Anthony & Ebbie’s knowledge of bikers in popular culture in the game BIKER TROVE.
All this and R.O.D. the TV makes its debut as the Weekly Retro Recap. Rev your engines dear listener, for it’s another tearaway episode of the show they call DITB.
Elliot Page and Lewis Smith join us today to talk about the 2001 OAV series, READ OR DIE. Superpowered librarians, resurrected great men from history and “British” accents are all here in this week’s episode. PLUS: Digi-girl Pop is our Weekly Retro Recap.
We’re back to looking at films/OAVs/specials from 10 years ago, and today it is 2003’s LUPIN III special. Where, get this, rather than stealing treasure, he has to return it. I know, right?
To help us deal with this strange turn of events in the life of everyone’s favourite thief, we have Bradley C. Meek on board. We’ll also have a game of GUESS THE EUROPEAN and ZATCH BELL will attempt to make it past week two of its stint in the Weekly Retro Recap slot.
Gary Hedges joins us today to talk about Slayers The Motion Picture (1995), Lina and Naga’s first animated outing together. Plus all the usual features, with this week’s Weekly Retro Recap being episode 1 of Zatch Bell.
And yes, there is a game. One which we had to record twice as the rules in the first attempt made it something of a disaster. Is the final version any less of a disaster? You be the judge!
Aaron Long joins us again today, to talk about Memories, the 1995 anthology based on the works of Katsuhiro Otomo. That’s MAGNETIC ROSE, STINK BOMB and CANNON FODDER, three excellent short films. And because of what’s in this week’s Weekly Retro Recap, we guarantee that this review of Memories contains more references to MR STAIN IN JUNK ALLEY than any other you can find on the internet.
Plus we play a game of MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THESE as Aaron tries to improve on the performance in the whale-based quiz from the Mind Game episode.
