The Big O Season 2

Episode 251 – The Big O Season 2

Cast in name of Pod. Ye guilty. Guilty of keeping our promises, that is! As we discussed way back in Episode 145, we are back 3 years later to review Season 2 of Big O! Dwayne and Niall are back and we’ve got an Elliot Page here too. What’s changed in Paradigm City over those 3 years? Can we make sense of the ending? Will Brian somehow end up discussing Heybot? All these questions and more are answered on this week’s Dynamite In The Brain.

Episode 171 – Yo-Kai Watch

Yo-Kai are for lovers on this Valentine’s Day. Dwayne Moloney is back and we made him watch 13 episodes of the current hot property in anime and videogames, Yo-Kai Watch. But before we get to a run down of the 30+ yo-kai from those episodes, we take a look back at the Grand Poobah of yo-kai anime, 1968’s GeGeGe no Kitaro in our feature Just Enough To Bluff.

Plus, we play a game of that popular French quiz, Pocket Monsieurs. All in all it’s a very MONGE episode of Dynamite in the Brain~!

Episode 146 – Anime Baldy Poker

krillin

Dwayne Moloney joins Anthony and Brian to play a game of Anime Baldy Poker. Somehow we get a lot of mileage out talking bald cartoon characters despite not really having a enough people to properly play this game or talking about all the bald guys we had on our lists.

Plus, another bald guy is our Weekly Retro Recap, the completely hair free (except when he has an Afro), Sergeant Frog. So grit your ears and get ready for your weekly dose of DITB!

Episode 136 – Saint Young Men

sym

Dwayne Moloney joins us to talk the 2013 film adaptation of Hikaru Nakamura’s hit manga SAINT YOUNG MEN. Jesus and Buddha take a vacation in Japan, leading to all sorts of amusing vignettes.

Plus, Weekly Retro Recap returns with episode 1 of Genshiken and we play a game of GOD or DOG?

Episode 127 – One Piece Film Z

T0013923p

 

Bradley C. Meek and Dwayne Moloney join us to ostensibly talk about the 2012 One Piece movie, Film Z. However, Anthony has lots of questions about One Piece, and so it ends up more of a general One Piece discussion.

Plus all the usual features: WATCHUWATCH, Major Episode 2 is our Weekly Retro Recap and a game! This week it’s ANIME ALPHABET.

NB: There’s a few connection problems with Bradley late in the episode due to his housemate watching things on Netflix, but they are mostly confined to the game section.

Episode 121 – Xmas Special

Join us and our guests, Lewis Smith, Dwayne Moloney and Niall Flanagan, in the Dynamite In The Brain Xmas Grotto as we listen to more hits of the season from Japan. And slowly lose our minds.

Peppa Pig

BONUS: Secret of the Sailor Madness Episode 50

Our podcast chums, Secret of the Sailor Madness made the mistake of asking for topic suggestions for their 50th episode. Brian offered some, and here we are, a podcast where Dwayne and Niall invited Brian on to talk about arguably the biggest TV cartoon of the last decade – PEPPA PIG.

This podcast is not suitable for children.

Episode 101 – Fist Of The North Star

fist_of_the_north_star

You are already annoyed at the sound quality of Brian’s microphone.

This may be the worst sounding podcast we have put out. So, sorry in advance. Brian’s mixer decided to add a horrible hiss, which has been removed, but left him sounding like he’s been sealed in an oil drum.

Thankfully he said very little this podcast, so sit back and enjoy the dulcet tones of Anthony and our guests Dwayne Moloney and Niall Flanagan, from the Secret of the Sailor Madness podcast as they discuss the 1986 motion picture, FIST OF THE NORTH STAR.

Back to the Snowball next week, so hopefully no more problems for the foreseeable future.
