Marvyn joins us to take our fourth look at the output of Tokyo Movie Shinsha. This time round we meet superheroes, detectives, galactic school children and a famous video gamer.
Lupin & the Gang are back in the game and they’re going nowhere! Unlike Niall, who is on his way back from Japan, so it’s up to Brian & Dwayne to run down this week’s batch of anime.
One person asked for it, so the season anime previews are back. Recorded far too early in the month with Lewis Smith, we prognosticate on the upcoming new anime for October and beyond. Hear things that are not only not true now, they weren’t true 2 hours after we pressed stop on the record (thanks Zombieland!).
Niall’s still in Japan so we have to get real without him as Late Night! The Genius Bakabon gets a dose of verisimilitude.
Plus: Goemon questions his role, we can’t remember what happened in Ninja Girl & Samurai Master and those two bears show up again in Bonobono.
Lewis Smith joins us as we discuss the Netflix Original from Science Saru, Devilman Crybaby.
Dwayne & Brian mind the fort while Niall’s in Japan. So we take a trip to sunny Lisvalletta, home of upcoming October show DOUBLE DECKER! DOUG & KIRILL. Is it a Tiger & Bunny spin-off? We just can’t say for sure.
Plus: Yokai Apartments, Scary Forests and Failing Exams!
Greg Driver from Ace Comicals joins us to fill three stages full of musical acts that have appeared in anime.
Apologies for some distortion on Brian’s sound – turns out powering the Tascam from USB caused some interference on his microphone. Won’t be doing that again!
This week on Let’s Go! Late Night! The Genius Bakabon muscles in on Mr Tonegawa’s Powerpoint game, Zenigata turns rogue and the frog finally shows up in Working Buddies!
Oh boy. It’s been a while since we’ve gone on so many tangents that we forget to provide a synopsis. So I better do one here.
All Soichi Negishi wants to be is a twee indie pop star, but he’s been press ganged into being the lead singer and songwriter for Death Metal Records’ top band, Detroit Metal City. Torn between being a nice country boy and maintaining the persona of the demonic monster Johannes Krauser II, Soichi keeps finding himself in awkward social situations – many of his own making.
However, Anthony has a lot of questions about the world of heavy metal for our guests Greg and Holly, so there’s a lot of that too.
This week on Let’s Go! the provisional superhero licence exams continue in My Hero Academia, as things turn from super-powered dodgeball to a more practical appliance of superhero skills. Plus: two episodes of Working Buddies, death and cake in Ninja Girl & Samurai Master and Planet With carries on even though it ended last week!
