Lewis Smith is back to help us work our way from MANV 1028 and MANV 1048 as we continue our countdown of Manga Video’s VHS releases. This week we start with the proto-Inuyasha of Fire Tripper and end with the CLAMP psychic detectives of Tokyo Babylon. Plus: the arrival of the man who brought the sort of premium swearing forever associated with this era.
This episode should have come out between Monster City and The Boy and the Beast podcasts, so that’s why some of the references to other episodes seem wonky.
If you could go back in time and change one thing what would it be? For me it would have been to remember to include Super Jetter in this list anime time travel shows. Regardless, Niall joins us once more to vote on which famous anime time travellers are worthy of entry into the Famous Anime Podcast’s Hall of Anime Fame!
On the podcast we declare that one of these is very unlikely to get a Western release. Then days after recording it was announced that it will play in cinemas and be out on Blu Ray soon. So from now on we will declare on every episode that Adventures of Gamba and Dokaben will never be released in English.
