A double dose of fractured fairy tales this week as Vatican Miracle Examiner gets in on Pikotaro’s game with some specially satanic variations of folklore favourites. Plus betrayal in Rage of Bahamut, final exams in My Hero Academia and a boring fight with a sniper in Dragon Ball Super.
It begins! Our chronology of Manga Video’s UK VHS releases. This week Niall Flanagan joins us to count from IWCV 1001 to MANV 1011, otherwise known as Akira to Vampire Hunter D. We still don’t know what, if anything MANV 1010 was, so answers in the comments below. Also, no Feud as yet, but plenty of MANV.
Dwayne and Brian are here to guide you through a week’s worth of anime. Pikotaro is in a hole, Chipmunk tries to murder a frog, the Asakura clan plot their next move, Nina goes to a party, reality comes crashing down on Tatara and Sengoku, Roshi takes the fight to Universe 4 and the Vatican Miracle Examiners solve the case, but open a whole can of worms when they find a secret door!
Anthony and Brian are joined by Niall Flanagan and Ebbie (BizarreJelly5) to run down the highlights and the lowlights of a weekend spent at Warwick Arts Centre in the company of roughly 1500 attendees of Kitacon. We’re not even joking!
You can hear the parody songs that we discuss on this podcast here.
Goku & Hit vs the Pride Troopers? Who will win? Who will survive? And more to the point, what weekly show made Brian throw in the towel and declare his allegiance to 100% Teacher Pascal once more?
Niall Flanagan joins us to figure what sports anime featuring bats or rackets qualify to enter the Famous Anime Podcast’s Hall of Anime Fame.
Brian and Dwayne hold down the fort for this week’s Let’s Go! And I’m writing this description just before I leave for Kitacon, so that’s your lot!
As I rush out the door to Kitacon, enjoy this look at Masaaki Yuasa’s 2014 series Ping Pong The Animation.
Pikotaro’s LULLABY LA LA BY arrives and we add it to the Let’s Go schedule. Turns out it’s very timely, with Shonen Ashibe in repeats, Rage of Bahamut on hiatus and another show getting the boot this week. Plus: Magical Girls, Dogs, Wily Old Men and Tin Toys!
Use this MP3 to guide you through your anime convention. From buying a ticket to coming home, Anthony and Brian cover everything you can expect to encounter at an anime convention. And few things you won’t. And it works for any anime convention. 100% generic and definitely not mainly about the upcoming Kitacon.
Talking of which, join Brian on Friday 18th August 2017 in Woods-Scawen for “Anime Space Disco”, on Saturday 19th August in the Theatre for “MADstravaganza” and join the whole DITB gang for a live episode on Sunday 20th in The Studio!
