Famous Anime Podcast – More Light Novels

Lewis Smith joins us to take a look at Light Novel anime from the early 90s to determine which can be truly deemed FAMOUS!

Episode 262 – Monster City

Lewis Smith joins us today to talk about Yoshiaki Kawajiri’s 1988 adaptation of Demon City Shinjuku by Hideyuki Kikuchi. Better known to people of a certain age as the Manga Video release Monster City.

What are our memories of the OVA? Does re-watching it in 2017 destroy said memories? And what did Anthony think, coming to this fresh? Find out, on this barely themed Halloween episode of DITB!

Episode 247 – Mob Psycho 100

It’s been over three weeks since we recorded an episode, can we remember how to podcast? Lewis Smith joins us to find out and to discuss the 2013 Dragon Ball movie, BATTLE OF GODS. And a whole lot more besides. For instance the inability to purchase back issues in the international WSJ app, something that was remedied hours after we recorded this, making us look like instant dummies.

All this plus our Weekly Retro Recap, which this week is episode 1 of SAMURAI 7.

Episode 85 – Dynamite In The Brain Pilot Episode

Here is something different from our usual podcast.

The product of decades spent listening to BBC Radio 4, this is a pilot episode for a panel show/quiz version of the podcast, expanding on the games we play on the episodes with guests on.

It was an interesting experiment, and when we do it again, there’s a few changes I’ll make behind the scenes, and one rule change to the final round. Hopefully though this first draft feels different to the typical anime podcast.

On this episode, Anthony competes against Lewis Smith and Leon Everett. Who will win? Find out on episode 85 of Dynamite In The Brain…
