This week: Tiger The Dark faces down Tiger Mask’s felled foes in Hell In The Hole, Buu faces Basil The Brush, the Shinsengumi face their fear of other people and the Fenny faces the fact that the world is not fun.
All this and more as the two faces of Brian and Dwayne talk into microphones for an hour about weekly anime.
Aaron Long is back to help us pilot a new format, THE FAMOUS ANIME PODCAST. What does this presumptuously titled podcast involve? In it we discuss 10 of 2002’s most notable anime, and decide which of them can be considered famous in 2017. It mostly works. Though you may hear a few more Skype noises than intended.
We take a diversion from the norm this week as Niall delivers his final verdict on last season’s Flip Flappers and anime-adjacent The Red Turtle. Brian also went off the beaten track with the debut of SPACE SENTAI KYURANGER!
But do not worry, we also found time to watch and talk about all the usual stops as well.
NB: this week’s episode title is a reference to this 90’s puppet-led hit. Pretty sure Flip Flappers would have been greatly improved by covering that song with appropriate lyric changes.
Aaron Long (Sublo & Tangy Mustard) joins us once again to talk Crayon Shin-chan. This time round, we watched the 2015 movie, where the family move to Mexico, only to face the peril of man-eating cacti~!
This week, Krillin works through his mid-life crisis, Jean Otus gets some invitations he can’t decline and Beethoven & Mozart go on a job hunt. All this and more on another bumper episode of Let’s Go! The weekly anime podcast about weekly anime.
Education is on our minds this week. From adult education on a desert island, awful teachers, school festivals and history lessons on the Feuding States and Renaissance Italy, it’s all here on Let’s Go. Then we wrap things up by trying to figure out who’s on whose side in ACCA…
Who’s kissing Gohan? Why’s Ashibe fallen out with Goma-chan? Are chipmunks a superstitious and cowardly lot? All these questions and more are answered on another episode of Let’s Go! The weekly anime podcast about weekly anime.
Plus: we watched NEW ANIME~! ACCA, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, Interviews with Monster Girls, Onihei and Handshakers get give the first episode snap judgement treatment. Which will make it past the judges to come back next week? Listen and find out!
