Greg Driver & Gary Hedges join us again, this time run down our favourite robots from anime and manga. And one thing that isn’t either. And one robot that’s technically a cyborg, despite the only rule being no cyborgs.
WARNING: this episode contains a DBZ discussion that may have you shouting at your generic mp3 playing devices. All I will say is stick with it.
Plus, Tomorrow’s Nadja is once again our WEEKLY RETRO RECAP. Will it be the first show to go beyond two episodes? Download and find out!
Everyone guests on this episode of Dynamite In The Brain. Well not quite everyone, but we do have Gary Hedges, Greg Driver and Niall Flanagan on board to talk 1991’s CYBER CITY OEDO 808. The violence, the swearing, the vampires, the swearing, the robots, the swearing, it’s all here on another bumper episode of DITB.
As a counter point to this outpouring of 1990’s OAV excess, this week’s Weekly Retro Recap is episode 1 of TOMORROW’S NADJA, a tale of an orphan finding her way in the Europe of the early 20th century.
All this and we totally forget to mention that we’ve been at this podcast lark for TWO YEARS now.
Debbie Crisp joins us once more to talk about a Warner Home Video animation anthology, this time it’s the animated spin-off from the Matrix Trilogy, THE ANIMATRIX. Cast your minds back ten years to when our disappointment in the sequels was somewhat lessened by this collection of animated shorts set in the world of the Matrix.
Plus, this week’s WEEKLY RETRO RECAP is the first episode of SAIYUKI RELOAD.
To counteract the magical girl shows from last week’s episode, we are joined by Niall Flanagan to talk 1983’s movie adaptation of GOLGO 13. The world’s most famous stoic assassin in a classic from the 90s anime boom in the UK.
Plus the usual UK anime releases, WATCHUWATCH, the Weekly Retro Recap featuring Airmaster episode 2 and a game we like to call FINAL SCORE.
So listen, and find out why this episode could have been called “ALL ABOARD THE GULLIBILITY EXPRESS”…
It’s finally here, the episode in which Anthony is forced to watch MAGICAL GIRL SHOWS. Spanning six decades of magical girls, can the man from the North-East’s fragile machismo stand the onslaught of “girly” anime? Find out on a special episode of DITB!
Featuring: Sally The Witch! Meg The Witch Girl! Creamy Mami! Sailor Moon! Pretty Cure! Jewelpet Sunshine!
A last minute scheduling clash meant we were left guest-less and couldn’t do the planned topic. So we put a call out on twitter and Facebook for question and topics and you, the listener, came through for us. So episode 77 includes discussion of diverse topics like Ghost In The Shell Arise, Cats, Moomins, kigurumi, embarrassing moments and much, much more.
It’s a podclash as we are joined by Secret of the Sailor Madness (aka Niall Flanagan and Dwayne Moloney) to talk about the first nine episodes of 2012’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure television adaptation, the arc known as PHANTOM BLOOD. And for the spoiler adverse, we arguably spoil most of those episodes, so there you go.
Plus all the regular stations, namely UK Anime Releases, WATCHUWATCH and WEEKLY RETRO RECAP, which this week is episode one of Please Twins. To wrap things up we play a round of the popular game, JOJO or NONO.
Well this isn’t quite the episode we intended it be, as we both managed to botch something. Nevertheless it is still AN episode of Dynamite In The Brain.
As a follow up to our fourth episode (!) we talk about the first seven twelfths of the second season of Gag Manga Biyori and the Jump Festa OAV that acted as a pilot for the ongoing series. In far more detail than you could possibly want.
Plus, the usual round of UK anime releases for the coming week and the DEBUT of our new feature the WEEKLY RETRO RECAP. Or possibly WEEKLY RETRO REVIEW depending of if we can remember it’s name on a weekly basis. It’s our replacement for dedicated reviews of entire TV shows from ten years ago. First up is episode 1 of .hack//Legend of the Twilight, will it be back next week or will it have been replaced?
Find out on today’s flu-ridden episode of the show the lazy call DITB!
Hello and Happy New Year. This is our 2012 in review episode with guest Bradley C Meek. We recorded this early in December, so it is entirely possible that some things we say now look foolish. I guarantee that some things we said looked foolish then. There’s also probably some things I meant to edit out at the time, but I can’t remember what they are, so they are definitely still in there.
All I know for sure is that my backing the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime in this podcast was totally proved right by episode 10 containing the greatest scene in television history.
Plus we play another game of “When Did People Give A Damn About…” that we forgot to play in episode 72, making this probably the biggest episode of DITB ever~!
Enjoy, and we’ll see you next week for the first episode of DITB 2013 proper and our all new feature THE WEEKLY RETRO REVIEW…
