Episode 80 – The Animatrix

ditb080

 

Debbie Crisp joins us once more to talk about a Warner Home Video animation anthology, this time it’s the animated spin-off from the Matrix Trilogy, THE ANIMATRIX. Cast your minds back ten years to when our disappointment in the sequels was somewhat lessened by this collection of animated shorts set in the world of the Matrix.

Plus, this week’s WEEKLY RETRO RECAP is the first episode of SAIYUKI RELOAD.

Oh and here’s the Drive animation that was mentioned on the podcast.

 

Episode 79 – Golgo 13

To counteract the magical girl shows from last week’s episode, we are joined by Niall Flanagan to talk 1983’s movie adaptation of GOLGO 13. The world’s most famous stoic assassin in a classic from the 90s anime boom in the UK.

Plus the usual UK anime releases, WATCHUWATCH, the Weekly Retro Recap featuring Airmaster episode 2 and a game we like to call FINAL SCORE.

So listen, and find out why this episode could have been called “ALL ABOARD THE GULLIBILITY EXPRESS”…

Episode 78 – Magical Geordie Askew-chan

It’s finally here, the episode in which Anthony is forced to watch MAGICAL GIRL SHOWS. Spanning six decades of magical girls, can the man from the North-East’s fragile machismo stand the onslaught of “girly” anime? Find out on a special episode of DITB!

Featuring: Sally The Witch! Meg The Witch Girl! Creamy Mami! Sailor Moon! Pretty Cure! Jewelpet Sunshine!

Episode 77 – Emergency Podcast

ditb077

A last minute scheduling clash meant we were left guest-less and couldn’t do the planned topic. So we put a call out on twitter and Facebook for question and topics and you, the listener, came through for us. So episode 77 includes discussion of diverse topics like Ghost In The Shell Arise, Cats, Moomins, kigurumi, embarrassing moments and much, much more.

Episode 76 – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

ditb076

It’s a podclash as we are joined by Secret of the Sailor Madness (aka Niall Flanagan and Dwayne Moloney) to talk about the first nine episodes of 2012’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure television adaptation, the arc known as PHANTOM BLOOD. And for the spoiler adverse, we arguably spoil most of those episodes, so there you go.

Plus all the regular stations, namely UK Anime Releases, WATCHUWATCH and WEEKLY RETRO RECAP, which this week is episode one of Please Twins.  To wrap things up we play a round of the popular game, JOJO or NONO.

Episode 75 – Gag Manga Biyori 2

ditb075

Well this isn’t quite the episode we intended it be, as we both managed to botch something. Nevertheless it is still AN episode of Dynamite In The Brain.

As a follow up to our fourth episode (!) we talk about the first seven twelfths of the second season of Gag Manga Biyori and the Jump Festa OAV that acted as a pilot for the ongoing series. In far more detail than you could possibly want.

Plus, the usual round of UK anime releases for the coming week and the DEBUT of our new feature the WEEKLY RETRO RECAP. Or possibly WEEKLY RETRO REVIEW depending of if we can remember it’s name on a weekly basis. It’s our replacement for dedicated reviews of entire TV shows from ten years ago. First up is episode 1 of .hack//Legend of the Twilight, will it be back next week or will it have been replaced?

Find out on today’s flu-ridden episode of the show the lazy call DITB!

Episode 74 – A Look Back At 2012

ditb074

Hello and Happy New Year. This is our 2012 in review episode with guest Bradley C Meek. We recorded this early in December, so it is entirely possible that some things we say now look foolish. I guarantee that some things we said looked foolish then. There’s also probably some things I meant to edit out at the time, but I can’t remember what they are, so they are definitely still in there.

All I know for sure is that my backing the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime in this podcast was totally proved right by episode 10 containing the greatest scene in television history.

Plus we play another game of “When Did People Give A Damn About…” that we forgot to play in episode 72, making this probably the biggest episode of DITB ever~!

Enjoy, and we’ll see you next week for the first episode of DITB 2013 proper and our all new feature THE WEEKLY RETRO REVIEW…

Episode 73 – DITB Xmas Spectacular ’12

ditb073

Here it is, our second XMAS SPECTACULAR~!

Debbie Crisp and Gary Hedges join us to once again review Xmas musical fare from the world of anime (and tokusatsu). And then we all assemble around the old Joanna for a festive sing song.

All this plus the usual stations of UK anime releases and WATCHUWATCH.

00:17:00 – Xmas Anison Armageddon

00:59:00 – Xmas Karaoke

Check our facebook  page for full versions of the songs.

No episode next week, but will be back in the New Year with our run down of all that was good in 2012, so see you there.

Marill Christmas Everyone!

Episode 72 – Winter Preview

ditb072

Bradley C. Meek joins us to look forward to next years new anime shows. Warning: there might occasionally be references to events in next week’s episode. This is because we are power ESPers and definitely not because we recorded our December episodes out of synch.

Here is the Idolmaster video I mention on the show.

Episode 71 – Lupin III Episode 0 – First Contact

For our final 2002 themed episode, Aaron Long joins us to talk the Lupin III special from that year, Episode 0 -First Contact and a play quick game of “Lupin? Or No Man!?”

I’d write more, but I am in the middle of editing the Xmas episode that drops in two weeks. You’ll hear then why it needed editing…
