Transformers Victory (1989) – The final Japanese TV outing for the Generation 1 toy robots.

Maico 2010 (1998) – Late night comedy about late night radio. With a half naked robot.

Brian, Gary and trusty third chair Dwayne are back with another ride in the TATDMU time machine to watch anime that didn’t get a chance to shape our childhoods.

This week it’s animal antics, smart cars and rebooted mecha with Maple Town Stories (1986), Future GPX Cyber Formula (1991) and Tekkaman Blade (1992) .

Laputa – Castle In The Sky


Just in time for Hayao Miyazaki’s 80th Birthday, it’s the Laputa podcast I’ve been sitting on for months! Joining Brian this episode are Aaron Long of Sublo & Tangy Mustard and Leon Everett of Ace Comicals.

We are gathered to discuss Studio Ghibli’s debut film Laputa: Castle In The Sky, that you can find on Netflix if you are in the UK. Plus as there’s enough people here, we play a pirate themed game.

Ignore the Brian who says the next podcast is here in 2 weeks time. There’s such a backlog, it’ll be here next week!

The Anime That Didn’t Make Us #21 – Mecha Doc, Armoured Police Metal Jack

The show everyone is calling TATDMU returns with new co-host Gary Hedges! This week our trip down someone else’s memory lane takes us the 1984 car tuning anime Mecha Doc and the 1991 robot police anime Armoured Police Metal Jack.

Plus: Brian gets the lead of dreadful sitcom Bottle Boys wrong, something he realised immediately after recording and has haunted him ever since. Sure he could have edited it out, but better to use it to go off on a weird tangent in the show notes.
