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…
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.
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?
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~!
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.
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!
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.
Lewis and Holly join us today to discuss 2016’s adaptation of ONE’s web manga Mob Psycho 100. A tale of a teenage ESPer’s attempt to find his purpose in life and the conman & the ghost who try to guide him. Plus a new game called Counting to 100. If you want to hear 3 people guess numbers for far longer than seems necessary, this is the episode for you!
In a move that will surprise no one, we are joined today by Niall Flanagan to discuss the last batch of Japan Animator Expo shorts, plus the bonus short that appeared a year later. And then we try and figure out which were our favourites, and which worlds we’d like to return to.
