It’s the battle of who watched the most anime and then retained it, as the Let’s Go Gang go head to head in Brian’s Anime Quiz of the Year for 2016.
Bradley Meek joins us to talk about the types of anime that makes a certain sort of person say “They MUST have been on drugs when they wrote that!”.
From Brian’s list of half-formed convention panel ideas comes THE £100 ANIME COLLECTION. Niall Flanagan joins Anthony & Brian to figure out the best way to build an anime collection from scratch by spending £100 on Amazon.co.uk. Whose choices (and methods) were best? That is up to you, the listener, to decide.
And hey, we weren’t intending this as a Xmas shopping guide, but maybe it works as one given the date we’re releasing this episode?
As promised, it’s our second annual Angel’s Egg episode. Who’s joining us to watch Mamoru Oshii’s dreamlike masterpiece? It’s Bradley Meek!
Featuring, faux cineaste snobbery that probably sounds like real cineaste snobbery, incorrect information about physical media availability, wild speculation on Mamoru Oshii’s personal life and a quiz about eggs.
Niall Flanagan from Secret of the Sailor Madness & Let’s Go JoJo joins us to discuss 1999’s Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade. A tale from Mamoru Oshii’s Kerberos Saga, directed by noted perfectionist Hiroyuki Okiura, can it live up to Anthony’s expectations? Find out on another episode of Dynamite In The Brain.
Niall Flanagan joins us to discuss where we should send our ungrateful cartoon children to receive an education. It’s the Top 5 Anime Schools.
Niall Flanagan from Secret of the Sailor Madness and Greg Driver from Ace Comicals join us for our Halloween episode. Together we gaze upon the horror of Toei’s 1980 TV movie adaptation of Marvel’s Tomb of Dracula, Dracula: Sovereign of the Damned. Can you adapt 26 issues of comics in 90 minutes and still make sense? Tonight we find out!
Chaos descends upon the Dynamite In The Brain studios, as The Let’s Go Gang struggle to record a nice short podcast about 1986’s Project A-ko. Eventually this episode is released to the world, a podcast recorded in reverse order with elements of unintended repetition. Can you see the join?

And watch Anthony play video games on YouTube.
Travel to the Tatami Galaxy with special guests Aaron Long and Elliot Page. The four of us discuss Masaaki Yuasa & Makoto Ueda’s 2010 adaptation of Tomihiko Morimi’s novel. Then we play a game of “Have I Got News For Uatu”.
Apologies for any mixing troubles, this was the first recording after Brian re-arranged his “studio” and so things weren’t quite what they should have been setting-wise.

Bradley Meek is back again, as we follow up our discussion of the first Pokemon movie with a discussion of the first Yo-Kai Watch movie. Which at the time of recording we didn’t know was about to get an English language release.
An episode that increasingly becomes an object lesson in not recording two review podcasts in a row, we round things off with a game of Fusin’ Around. This is a game that the contestants do not fully understand until it’s almost over. Hopefully you, the listener, will fare better.
Plus: Anthony and Bradley accidentally guess the start of the second Yo-Kai Watch movie, so watch out for spoilers for that too, if you are so inclined.
