More Xmas, as this week Elliot Page joins us to talk Satoshi Kon’s film Tokyo Godfathers and to play a game where you have to guess anime babies. I couldn’t think of a name for it, but that’s what it involves. Plus Human Crossing is our Retro Weekly Recap.
Leon Everett joins us today to talk Satoshi Kon’s feature film, Millennium Actress. And to be stunned into silence by Anthony’s opinions on it. Take a listen for yourself and see how you react. It’s quite the thing.
Plus: Licensed by Royalty episode 4 is our Weekly Retro Recap and we play a game of WILLENNIUM ACTRESS.
Grace Chan joins us as we experiment with single subject, episodic podcasting and pilot a spin-off podcast about Samurai Champloo. Which may be called BATTLECRY, but might not. And as this is your ever lovin’ DITB, there is a game!
Once again, Anthony, Brian and Greg headed to Leeds Film’s Fanomenom Anime Day and saw 6 animated films in 10 hours. Garden of Words, HAL, Patema Inverted, Steins;Gate, Evangelion 3.0 and Akira were on the bill and you will hear what we thought about them on this podcast.
PLUS: Anthony and Greg went to the Day of the Dead so they will also tell you about a whole pile of horror movies too. Brian kills off a regular feature and Licensed by Royalty is the Weekly Retro Recap.
Gary Hedges and Aaron Long join us to discuss the Dirty Pair OAV/Movie Affair on Nolandia. It all gets a bit out of control on the looking up Dirty Pair statues/figures front so please check out the images on the website.
Plus we discuss the greatest anime henchman ever in our Weekly Retro Recap.
Dirty Pair, Chris Claremont-style
The figures Gary has.
The nicest figures.
Are those orange tails?
Early Adam Warren-style
The modern day Dirty Pair
It’s taken over two years and 103 episodes, but we have finally recorded the second half of our RPG episode with Jon Anning. You can listen to the first half here, which is more than we did before recording this episode, so forgive us any repetition, we only have so many orc related anecdotes.
We talk anime based on RPGs, anime influenced by RPGs and RPGs in general. Plus Licensed by Royalty is our Weekly Retro Recap and we play a Sword & Sorcery Box Office game.
Dynamite In The Brain, the Natural 20 of podcasting!
Our Halloween episode emerges from the crypt for a rare Thursday podcast!
Niall Flanagan joins us to talk Blood the Last Vampire, and play some vampire themed games because frankly there’s only so much you can say about a 45 minute action movie.
Plus, the new releases and Full Metal Panic Fumoffu!
Grace Chan joins us today to talk about Satoshi Kon’s film Perfect Blue. This inevitably leads to talk of stalking, poisoning boy bands and cinema’s most famous St Bernard, BEETHOVEN.
Plus Full Metal Panic Fumoffu, the week’s anime releases and a game of BLUE IS THE COLOUR. It’s another fun packed outing for DITB!
Replacing our scheduled episode this week is a guest appearance from Brian on Secret of the Sailor Madness from this time last year. All about the DiC cartoon based on the then popular rap artist, MC HAMMER.
