Our chronology of Manga Video’s UK VHS releases continues! This week we count from MANV 1012 to MANV 1027, otherwise known as Lensman to The Professional: Golgo 13. We still don’t know what the Feud in the title is, but as always we have plenty of MANV.
Merry Christmas! Santa got you a podcast! Bradley Meek of the Anime Now! podcast joins Brian, Niall and Dwayne to cast an eye over a selection of Christmas anime episodes from Read Or Die, Azumanga Daioh, Polar Bear Cafe, Golgo 13 and Gintama. Scheduled guest Elliot Page was stuck on a train somewhere, as was Anthony. Different trains though.
Plus: a festive “bonus” at the end of the episode. Or the audio equivalent of a lump of coal in your stocking.
To counteract the magical girl shows from last week’s episode, we are joined by Niall Flanagan to talk 1983’s movie adaptation of GOLGO 13. The world’s most famous stoic assassin in a classic from the 90s anime boom in the UK.
Plus the usual UK anime releases, WATCHUWATCH, the Weekly Retro Recap featuring Airmaster episode 2 and a game we like to call FINAL SCORE.
So listen, and find out why this episode could have been called “ALL ABOARD THE GULLIBILITY EXPRESS”…
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.
