DITB #282 – Lupin the Third: Jigen’s Gravestone

This week on Dynamite In The Brain, we discuss Lupin III: Jigen’s Gravestone, Takeshi Koike’s 2014 pseudo-sequel to The Woman Called Fujiko Mine.  Along with frequent tangents towards Part 4 and Part 5.

Episode 181 – Lupin III : The Woman Called Fujiko Mine

Between work pressure and sickness, we’ve got a backlog of podcasts to get out from the last month! Here is the first of them, originally recorded 13th May, as Phillip O’Connor joins us to talk all about 2012’s Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine.

Directed by Sayo Yamamoto (Michiko & Hatchin, Space Dandy), with character designs and animation direction by Takeshi Koike (Redline), surely this will be right up our collective alleys? Find out on the podcast and then join in with a game all about hypothetical anime spin-offs~!

Episode 80 – The Animatrix



Debbie Crisp joins us once more to talk about a Warner Home Video animation anthology, this time it’s the animated spin-off from the Matrix Trilogy, THE ANIMATRIX. Cast your minds back ten years to when our disappointment in the sequels was somewhat lessened by this collection of animated shorts set in the world of the Matrix.

Plus, this week’s WEEKLY RETRO RECAP is the first episode of SAIYUKI RELOAD.

Oh and here’s the Drive animation that was mentioned on the podcast.


Episode 21 – Like Crack on Steroids


It’s all about Redline, the latest work from Takeshi Koike. Brian’s seen it far too many times at the cinema over the last year and a half, and now Anthony’s finally had a chance to check it out. So we talk about it for an hour. Plus: Speed Racer gets belatedly analysed, cosplay updates, shameless spreading of internet rumours and a ridiculous metaphor that Brian can’t remember if he used or not.
