Niall Flanagan from The Secret of the Sailor Madness podcast joins us again to run down our top 5 Hard Men and Women of Anime! Who are the meanest, toughest nuts we can name from the history of anime? Find out in the latest episode of Dynamite In The Brain!

Plus: Niall’s seen Tiger & Bunny: The Beginning, so we talk all about that again. We hope you aren’t sick of it, because there will yet another episode in about a month where we will bring it up again, as it’s showing at Leeds International Film Festival’s Anime Day.

Episode 61 – Ghost In The Shell SAC (PLUS: Tiger & Bunny – The Beginning)

Greg Driver and Lewis Smith from Structured Randomness join us to talk about 2002’s Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex. It’s cyborg procedural drama in the way only Masamune Shirow and Production IG can deliver. In earlier episodes Brian and Anthony both admitted to having found it boring back in the day – how will they find it in 2012?

PLUS: Lewis and Brian both saw the first Tiger & Bunny movie in London. Find out what they thought about it in this week’s WATCHUWATCH.
