Episode 257 – Ping Pong The Animation

As I rush out the door to Kitacon, enjoy this look at Masaaki Yuasa’s 2014 series Ping Pong The Animation.

Episode 256 – All Purpose, Pre-Recorded Convention Commentary

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!

My Neighbour Totoro

Episode 255 – My Neighbour Totoro

We failed to get to the Genocidal Organ screenings last month, so we needed an equivalent replacement. What better replacement than 1988’s My Neighbour Totoro? What’s more, our guest Grace Chan did see Genocidal Organ so we can find out how they compare.

Plus a game of “Neighbours” and Anthony’s Neighbour The Lambton Worm…

Episode 254 – Little Witch Academia Season 1

Come along and hang with the Let’s Go Gang, as SOTSM and DITB team up to tackle Netflix Original anime, Little Witch Academia Season 1. At last! It’s an episode by episode run down of Akko’s antics at Luna Nova Witch Academy.

Episode 253 – GANTZ:O

Will it be third time lucky for a Gantz adaptation? We find out as we watch 2016’s GANTZ:O. Adapting the “Nurarihyon Alien Mission” arc into a one-off (?) CG movie, can they stay true to the heart of the comic, while making it accessible? Or will this miss the nihilistic magic of manga once again?

Watch GANTZ:O on Netflix.

Episode 252 – Summer Anime Preview 2017

We lied, it’s not Gantz:O (that’s next week). Instead it’s two fools passing summary judgement on every anime they can find with a July start date. With little more than promo art, staff lists and a trailer or two to go on. It’s the return of the Dynamite In The Brain season preview~!

The Big O Season 2

Episode 251 – The Big O Season 2

Cast in name of Pod. Ye guilty. Guilty of keeping our promises, that is! As we discussed way back in Episode 145, we are back 3 years later to review Season 2 of Big O! Dwayne and Niall are back and we’ve got an Elliot Page here too. What’s changed in Paradigm City over those 3 years? Can we make sense of the ending? Will Brian somehow end up discussing Heybot? All these questions and more are answered on this week’s Dynamite In The Brain.

Episode 250 – Episodes 250s

This week we celebrate an arbitrary landmark in our podcasting history by watching all the other episodes 250s that we could find on Crunchyroll. We check in on One Piece, Bleach, Naruto Shippuden, Gintama and Folktales from Japan. And go on a bunch of tangents too. Enjoy!

Episode 249 – Anime Twin Peaks

26 years since it left our TV screens, Twin Peaks is back. Which gave Anthony and Brian the opportunity to ponder, what could be the anime Twin Peaks? That’s right it’s our most opportunistic, flimsiest idea for a podcast yet. If not downright deceptive.

Episode 248 – Professor Layton & The Eternal Diva

A true gentleman leaves no podcast un-listened! Anthony and Brian talk about Level 5/OLM’s 2009 anime outing for video game puzzler, Professor Layton.
