As promised last year, Aaron Long (Sublo & Tangy Mustard) joins us take a look at the year all your favourite anime came out, the year anime broke, 1998. Who will enter the Famous Anime Podcast’s Hall of Anime Fame? Who will fall to the wayside? Find out on this month’s episode of the Famous Anime Podcast!
Once again Niall Flanagan of Secret of the Sailor Madness and Let’s Go sits in as co-host as Anthony is still missing. Even though he was on the last Let’s Go. The power of pre-recording!
What’s more, Bradley Meek of Anime Now! joins us again, as we run down what we think are the best examples of anime from 2001. And there’s a lot. 2001 was a pretty good year, and we’ve got a lot of episodes out of it over the years.
Beaming in from the Secret of the Sailor Madness, Niall Flanagan joins us to talk about the back 13 episodes of Cowboy Bebop. Mushrooms, Cowboys, Exploding Birds and a surprising amount of episodes Brian couldn’t remember all feature in this bumper episode of DITB.
Plus: the Weekly Retro Recap is the opening episode of the baseball epic Major. and we debut the new recurring quiz format “KIDS OR CREEPS?”
And we’re back to our regular schedule.
Dwayne Maloney and Leon Everett join us to talk about the first half of the 1998 anime TV series, Cowboy Bebop. We also discuss Weekly Shonen Jump coming to the UK, interactive theatre, and drunken actors in WATCHUWATCH. Astro Boy makes its fourth appearance in Weekly Retro Recap. And we play a game of “Name That Bounty Hunter”.
All this and more on a bumper edition of Dynamite In The Brain.
Late, but live from Ayacon 2013, here is our Anison Armageddon panel with Brian hosting and a panel of Anthony, Ebbie, Gary, Grey, Leon, Niall and 10 members of the audience deciding what was the best anime song from 1998. Check out the video on Ebbie’s youtube channel.
Leon Everett is back to discuss Cowboy Bebop The Movie. And to perform an acapella version of the Big Shot theme tune! And we answer the question that was on everyone’s lips following Episode 22 – What was the name of the Pog mascot?
Anthony wants you to watch his Redline AMV.
