Episode 263 – The Boy and The Beast

Lewis Smith joins us to discuss the 2015 Mamoru Hosoda film. It took so long to get a UK release we’re months away from his next film!

Episode 68 – Summer Wars

Lewis Smith joins us to talk the final Mamoru Hosoda film in our countdown to Wolf Children, 2009’s SUMMER WARS. And a whole bunch of other stuff in between! Bleach! Clouds! Dinosaurs! It’s all here in another fun edition of your ever lovin’ DITB.

Episode 67 – The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

Bradley C Meek joins us to talk about all the old anime he’s been watching and the next Mamoru Hosoda film in our countdown to Wolf Children – THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME.

Then Brian tries out his new mixer for a game of NAME THAT TIME TRAVEL TOON TUNE. It sort of works, but will work better once the rest of the leads we need arrive from Hong Kong. Hopefully in time for our Xmas episode and the terrible plans we have for it.

Episode 66 – One Piece: Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island

Today we continue our look at Mamoru Hosoda’s cinematic output, with special guests Niall Flanagan and Aaron Long. Following Digimon, the next movie should have been Howl’s Moving Castle, but instead we got the sixth One Piece movie,¬†Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island. Which may or may not be sort of about the process of failing to make Howl’s Moving Castle. Whatever it is, it’s still a great film!

All this and a rousing game of Play Your Long Running Shonen Franchises Right!

The Mamoru Hosoda interview Brian mentions on the podcast.

Episode 64 – Digimon The Movie

Part 1 of our run down of Mamoru Hosoda’s motion picture work as we approach Leeds Film’s screening of WOLF CHILDREN begins with Saban’s cut and paste Digimon Movie. 2 parts Hosoda to 1 part¬†Yamauchi, does this strange hodgepodge of THREE different Digimon movies work? Lewis Smith joins us to find out.

All this plus the week’s new releases, a WATCHUWATCH where Brian is free of the shackles from watching GITS, and everyone’s favourite quiz – HEY NOW YOU’RE AN ALL STAR OR NOT.

It all adds up to another great edition of DYNAMITE IN THE BRAIN*.
