MANV Feud 3: Fire Tripper to Tokyo Babylon

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.

Episode 188 – Rumiko Takahashi On TV

Aaron Long joins us to watch an episode from each and every one of the TV adaptations of Rumiko Takahashi’s work. From visa problems to penguins to pandas to yokai, it’s all here on this episode recorded 12th July.┬áNot quite 2 months late! Hopefully I managed to catch every reference to Kitacon and get them edited out.

And when you’ve finished listening to this, go watch Aaron’s new cartoon Sublo & Tangy Mustard!
