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.

Dynamite In The Brain, the Natural 20 of podcasting!

Episode 114 – Perfect Blue

Grace Chan joins us today to talk about Satoshi Kon’s film Perfect Blue. This inevitably leads to talk of stalking, poisoning boy bands and cinema’s most famous St Bernard, BEETHOVEN.

Plus Full Metal Panic Fumoffu, the week’s anime releases and a game of BLUE IS THE COLOUR. It’s another fun packed outing for DITB!

Episode 113 – Haircut Sir?

An under the weather Brian and Anthony are joined by a car alarm and a ringing telephone to talk about anime haircuts in an episode that was originally planned to be something entirely different. Thanks Oxford telephone exchanges for that.

We also talk Samurai Flamenco, Pokemon X & Y and Kamen Rider Gaim amongst other things. But mainly we talk about hair.

Episode 112 – Anime Finales

Well this is a chaotic episode. An episode idea that turned out to trickier than it seemed when we thought of it. The intended guest stranded in the countryside.  Then a last minute run in from a mystery guest. I think it all works out in the end. The obligatory game has a pretty solid concept behind it for sure.

Needless to say, given the topic, SPOILERS abound.

And Full Metal Panic Fumoffu episode 2 is the Weekly Retro Recap.

 

Episode 111 – Autumn Preview
