Episode 124 – 2013 In Review

mako

Bradley C. Meek is back with us for our first episode of the new year, as week talk all our favourite things from the past year of anime. That’s right, it’s an hour and a half of singing the praises of one Mako Mankanshoku.

A few other topics manage to shoulder their way in, including the first Weekly Retro Recap of 2004 – Agatha Christie’s Great Detectives Poirot and Marple.

NB: this was recorded before Episode 12 of Kill La Kill aired. Had we seen it, this podcast might have been us mainly talking about that.

Episode 123 – Winter Preview

Bradley C. Meek joins us to preview the first new anime of 2014, while bidding a fond farewell to 2013’s Autumn shows. And to gang up with Anthony on one of Brian’s favourite shows of the past 3 months. It’s not fair, I tell you.

The execrable Mouse is our Weekly Retro Recap and Brian has the gain turned up too high on his new mixer…

Episode 120 – Millennium Actress

Leon Everett joins us today to talk Satoshi Kon’s feature film, Millennium Actress. And to be stunned into silence by Anthony’s opinions on it. Take a listen for yourself and see how you react. It’s quite the thing.

Once again, Anthony, Brian and Greg headed to Leeds Film’s Fanomenom Anime Day and saw 6 animated films in 10 hours. Garden of Words, HAL, Patema Inverted, Steins;Gate, Evangelion 3.0 and Akira were on the bill and you will hear what we thought about them on this podcast.

PLUS: Anthony and Greg went to the Day of the Dead so they will also tell you about a whole pile of horror movies too. Brian kills off a regular feature and Licensed by Royalty is the Weekly Retro Recap.

Episode 117 – Dirty Pair: Affair on Nolandia

Gary Hedges and Aaron Long join us to discuss the Dirty Pair OAV/Movie Affair on Nolandia. It all gets a bit out of control on the looking up Dirty Pair statues/figures front so please check out the images on the website.

Episode 116 – RPG Anime Part 2

cthulhu

It’s taken over two years and 103 episodes, but we have finally recorded the second half of our RPG episode with Jon Anning. You can listen to the first half here, which is more than we did before recording this episode, so forgive us any repetition, we only have so many orc related anecdotes.

We talk anime based on RPGs, anime influenced by RPGs and RPGs in general. Plus Licensed by Royalty is our Weekly Retro Recap and we play a Sword & Sorcery Box Office game.
