A special Halloween episode of DITB. We talk 2009 CG vampire anime Hipira. Originally a story book by Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira) and Shinji Kimura, it got a series of shorts made by Kimura and CG master Kodai Sato.
Then we discuss IMDB’s highest rated animated vampires themed shows/movies. Which briefly turns into an episode of Cash In The Attic.
If you like swearing this episode is for you. We are really earning the explicit tag on iTunes this time round with the final segment of this episode. Otherwise it’s just a casual chat about recent anime. So beware of spoilers (though I think we generally brush over anything too significant outside of the last segment).
And as we cover a lot of stuff, time codes!

And now for one of those episodes where I make Anthony watch something against his will. In this case it’s the first episodes of a whole load of early 70s Dynamic Productions TV shows. We’re talking Devilman, Mazinger Z, Dororon Enma-kun, Cutie Honey and much, much more. Haunted houses, de-uglification, crushed mice, seedy faces, keyrings, indomitable stupidity, acoustic guitars, banana skins and a dead dog hanging from a tree, it’s all here in another exciting episode of Dynamite In The Brain.
Leon Everett is back to discuss Cowboy Bebop The Movie. And to perform an acapella version of the Big Shot theme tune! And we answer the question that was on everyone’s lips following Episode 22 – What was the name of the Pog mascot?
Brian’s fixed his PC and we’re back, back, back! We get hyped about the new Kamen Rider series, Kamen Rider Fourze. Then we talk about the forthcoming Autumn anime that have peaked our interest. Also we somehow end up talking Entourage, college weirdos and POGS!
PLUS: The internet comes alive with re-enactments of angry youtube posts
NOT TO MENTION: Anthony wants you to watch his Redline AMV.
It’s all about Redline, the latest work from Takeshi Koike. Brian’s seen it far too many times at the cinema over the last year and a half, and now Anthony’s finally had a chance to check it out. So we talk about it for an hour. Plus: Speed Racer gets belatedly analysed, cosplay updates, shameless spreading of internet rumours and a ridiculous metaphor that Brian can’t remember if he used or not.
Hey gang! We’re back from Ayacon 2011, and we’ve filled an entire podcast with chat about it. What events did we go to? What cosplay did we wear? What did we buy? What did we see? All this and the MADstravaganza 5 playlist too.
It’s Ayacon next weekend, and we’re going to be there. In this episode we talk about what we are looking forward to at the con. Plus: Brian’s brief, glorious webcomic career and Anthony’s mastery of accents!
This episode is all about Halo Legends. Anthony made Brian spend THREE POUNDS of your Earth money on a DVD that was certainly an anime anthology about the videogame Halo. Has Anthony pulled a reverse Pugyuru? To find out, use your ears to listen to the newest episode of Dynamite In The Brain.
N.B. We do not reveal what a “Reverse Puyuru” is in the episode. Or even mention it.
Today we talk about the Spring anime shows we’ve been watching over the last three months. They involved a lot of demons, some bawdy humour, superheroes and eating exotic foods. All this plus minds going blank and the promise of someone wearing make-up!
