Episode 96 – Akira

A week late, but here is last week’s episode of DITB. Sort of. You see, Brian accidentally deleted the original recording so we tried to recreate it two weeks after the initial recording.

Just as then, we are joined by Greg Driver. The Weekly Retro Recap is still R.O.D. TV. And once again we play a round of Biker Trove.

So enjoy this dramatic reconstruction of a lost DITB episode.

Episode 95 – Kino’s Journey

Ebbie aka BizarreJelly5 joins us today to talk about her favourite TV show of all time, Kino’s Journey. Brian and Anthony have never seen it before, so find out how they react to this tale of a girl and her talking motorcycle.

Brian has heard of another show with a talking motorcycle, so we also talk a little about the failed pilot Heat Vision & Jack.

Plus he tests Anthony & Ebbie’s knowledge of bikers in popular culture in the game BIKER TROVE.

All this and R.O.D. the TV makes its debut as the Weekly Retro Recap. Rev your engines dear listener, for it’s another tearaway episode of the show they call DITB.

Episode 92 – Lupin III : Operation Return The Treasures

We’re back to looking at films/OAVs/specials from 10 years ago, and today it is 2003’s LUPIN III special. Where, get this, rather than stealing treasure, he has to return it. I know, right?

To help us deal with this strange turn of events in the life of everyone’s favourite thief, we have Bradley C. Meek on board. We’ll also have a game of GUESS THE EUROPEAN and ZATCH BELL will attempt to make it past week two of its stint in the Weekly Retro Recap slot.

Enjoy!

Episode 91 – Slayers The Motion Picture

Slayers The Motion Picture

Gary Hedges joins us today to talk about Slayers The Motion Picture (1995), Lina and Naga’s first animated outing together. Plus all the usual features, with this week’s Weekly Retro Recap being episode 1 of Zatch Bell.

And yes, there is a game. One which we had to record twice as the rules in the first attempt made it something of a disaster. Is the final version any less of a disaster? You be the judge!

Episode 90 – Memories

Aaron Long joins us again today, to talk about Memories, the 1995 anthology based on the works of Katsuhiro Otomo. That’s MAGNETIC ROSE, STINK BOMB and CANNON FODDER, three excellent short films. And because of what’s in this week’s Weekly Retro Recap, we guarantee that this review of Memories contains more references to MR STAIN IN JUNK ALLEY than any other you can find on the internet.

Plus we play a game of MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THESE as Aaron tries to improve on the performance in the whale-based quiz from the Mind Game episode.

Episode 89 – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 2

Elliot Page from the UK Anime Network podcast and Epiloguists joins us with the returning Keepers of the Secret of the Sailor Madness, Niall Flanagan and Dwayne Moloney to talk the anime adaptation of the second part of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, BATTLE TENDENCY.

And boy do we talk about. We talk about it for almost three hours. So expect spoilers by the truckload.

Plus all the usual features are here, including Ninja Scroll making it’s debut in the Weekly Retro Recap and rousing game of JOJO or BOBO?

Episode 88 – Devilman

Greg Driver joins us today to talk the 1987 & 1990 Devilman OAVs. Underground discos, spurned bird women and Stonehenge sending a message to the stars. We try to make sense of a great OAV series that unfortunately fizzled out before it really had a chance to get going. And throughout the episode Brian fails to keep a handle on what Miki Makimura’s name actually is (Maki? Miki? Maku?)

Plus, the UK anime releases, WATCHUWATCH, Dear Boys enters it’s first week in the Weekly Retro Recap and we round off with a game of THE CUTS ARE RIGHT!
