“Staked through the heart and you’re to blame, you give genetically engineered monsters designed for fighting, a bad name.”
That’s right, it’s 2012’s anime adaptation of Masakazu Katsura’s bloody superhero manga. Our first of four superhero shows, we discuss this melange of Batman, Devilman and Iron Man. Did we love it or hate it? Find out in a new episode of Dynamite In The Brain.
To begin the episode Anthony & Brian look back to episode 43 and the spring anime they said they were looking forward to. Did they watch them? What did they think of them? Then, having undermined their anime quality soothsaying abilities, they go ahead and pick what summer season anime they are looking forward to.
Yes, this is just the description of episode 33 with seasons changed. Don’t judge!
Can you believe it? We made it to fifty episodes! And what better way to celebrate this milestone of podcasting that reading out a list? How about reading out a list of the TOP 50 ANIME YOU MUST SEE BEFORE WE SNEAK INTO YOUR HOUSE AND MURDER YOU & YOUR LOVED ONES IN YOUR SLEEP? (That is how you linkbait this sort of nonsense, right?)
Not enough friend listener, then how about if we told you this list was made by the guests from the previous forty nine episodes? Still not interested? Howzabout a LEON EVERETT? Whattabout a NIALL FLANAGAN from SECRET OF THE SAILOR MADNESS?
Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? But that’s not all, there’s also a shout out from a TOTALLY REAL ANIME CHARACTER and a WHOLLY ORIGINAL game show.
If you don’t want to be spoilt on the list before listening stop reading here:
Lewis Smith of the Structured Randomness podcast returns to Dynamite In The Brain to talk the 2007 TV anime, Baccano! Gangsters, thieves, alchemists, demons and immortals collide in this homage to American crime and pulp stories of the Roarin’ Thirties.
Plus: Brian went to the BFI Anime Is For Everyone weekend and find out how we’d improve Game of Thrones.
This just in: shamelessly topical podcast shamefully comes out a day late and loses topicality!
You’ve had four days of incessant blather about a real royal family, now here’s an hour more blather about fictional cartoon royal families. We run down our top ten royals, ranging from alien princesses to reincarnated demons with their faces removed.
Plus: Anthony impersonates some classic Hanna Barbera characters!
We travel back to 2002 once again, this time to visit Poke-Venice and the fifth Pokemon movie, Pokemon Heroes. Joining us is Ebbie from the BizarreJelly5 video blog and The Aniverse Podcast. Pokemon blood types, creepy human/pokemon relationships, breakthroughs in Pokemon taxonomy and more are discussed in the latest episode of Dynamite In The Brain!
And we’re back! Brian’s been gallivanting across the UK in search of his missing voice and Anthony’s found gainful employment, so DITB had left you in the lurch. Fear not listener, for we are back and in a big way!
Philip from Eeepers Choice Podcast joins us to give Hiroyuki Yamaga & Satoru Akahori’s 2002 TV series, Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi a thorough going over. With it’s shifting styles and genres it’s hard to talk about this series without going over every episode, so that’s just what we did. For almost two hours. It’s another bumper Dynamite In the Brain, so enjoy!
A partial recording of our Anison Armageddon panel from Kitacon 4. Anthony and Brian are joined by Leon Everett, Niall Flanagan and Gary Hedges to review rap anime songs. The audience weigh in with their own opinions and a fun time is had by all.
Big thanks to Lewis Smith for lending his Blue microphone after Brian left his at home…
Anthony and what turned out to be a really quite ill, but gravelly voiced, Brian are joined this week by Leon Everett and Elliot Page to talk the Kitacon 4 weekend. The people, the panels, it’s all here in a bumper episode of Dynamite In The Brain.
In fact it can’t be contained in just one podcast. Check the website for a site-only bonus episode, a recording of (most of) our Anison Armageddon panel.
We recorded this once already, but they went and changed the schedule while we were recording! So a couple of weeks later we reconvened to talk about our picks of the upcoming Kitacon, with Leon Everett of Kitacon phoning in midway through to cast light on some of the more obtuse events of the convention.
