Episode 33 – Happy New Website

ditb033

It’s here, DYNAMITEINTHEBRAIN.COM

So tell all the boys and girls. Your brother and your sister and your mamma too.

And then get mad that Google autocompletes “word up lyrics” as “word up lyrics korn” before it does “word up lyrics cameo”. I ask you, what’s the world coming to?

Well it’s come to this – Anthony and myself running down our top five anime shows of 2011. What will win? What will have been forgotten? Will we mention Madoka Magica at all?

SPOILER ALERT: NO

Then, not satisfied with that, we pick what shows look good to us in 2012. HINT: Spherical cats and swordsmen feature.

All this and the revelation of what anime character Anthony most identifies with!

Episode 32 – The Dynamite In The Brain Xmas Special!

Ho! Ho! Ho! or should that be Moe! Moe! Moe!?

No. Because that’s not a sad girl in the snow, it’s Leon Everett, here to join us and review anime related Xmas songs. And then test his mettle and anime knowledge against Anthony in Brian’s Awesome Anime Quiz.

Episode 30 – Tiger & Bunny

ditb30

We are joined by Lewis Smith for a lengthy talk about Sunrise’s superhero buddy comedy, Tiger & Bunny. There were some recording problems during this, meaning we lost some material. I think I edited it to make sense, but apologies in advance if you hear call backs to things you didn’t hear earlier.

00:00 – 50:00 SPOILER FREE series overview
50:00 – 100:00 SPOILER-laden in depth discussion of the show. And there might be some Big O spoilers in there too. Though possibly not as I couldn’t recall exactly what I was trying to recall. You have been warned.

Dynamite In The Brain – Episode 26 – Hipira and other Vampires

ditb26

A special Halloween episode of DITB. We talk 2009 CG vampire anime Hipira. Originally a story book by Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira) and Shinji Kimura, it got a series of shorts made by Kimura and CG master Kodai Sato.

Then we discuss IMDB’s highest rated animated vampires themed shows/movies. Which briefly turns into an episode of Cash In The Attic.

Dynamite In The Brain – Episode 25 – Pirates, Hunters and Killer Rabbits

ditb25

If you like swearing this episode is for you. We are really earning the explicit tag on iTunes this time round with the final segment of this episode. Otherwise it’s just a casual chat about recent anime. So beware of spoilers (though I think we generally brush over anything too significant outside of the last segment).

And as we cover a lot of stuff, time codes!

00:00 Preamble (Eugene Mirman & Pretty Good Friends, Anthony’s Internet Woes)
03:20 One Piece Episode 517
14:20 Hunter x Hunter remake
25:00 Gundam AGE
37:20 Phi Brain

Dynamite In The Brain – Episode 24 – How Many Attacks Do You Need Dude?

ditb24

And now for one of those episodes where I make Anthony watch something against his will. In this case it’s the first episodes of a whole load of early 70s Dynamic Productions TV shows. We’re talking Devilman, Mazinger Z, Dororon Enma-kun, Cutie Honey and much, much more. Haunted houses, de-uglification, crushed mice, seedy faces, keyrings, indomitable stupidity, acoustic guitars, banana skins and a dead dog hanging from a tree, it’s all here in another exciting episode of Dynamite In The Brain.
