Ace Comicals’ Leon Everett returns for the third part of the FLCL trilogy – FLCL Alternative. Plus the Anime Ranking Game appears for the first time in ages.
It’s that time of the season when we run through 47 new anime and pick about 2 to watch. From animal people to VR MMOs and then back to animal people, with precious little isekai in between. Plus, Brian forgets that Masaaki Yuasa’s Ping Pong adaptation exists, so don’t @ us.
Dwayne finally takes the second chair as we welcome Sublo & Tangy Mustard creator Aaron Long to pick from the list of anime we never got see in our formative years.
Special Armored Battalion Dorvack – from 1983, it’s Battlestar Galactica for jackasses.
Montana Jones – from 1994, it’s Duck Tales for Italian Furries.
Dokkiri Doctor – from 1999, it’s Dr Slump with more Doctor and no Arale.
Heroic third chair Dwayne Moloney helps little red hens Brian & Anthony bake their podcast bread, and now you, the grateful woodland animals get to feast on it.
GeGeGe no Kitaro – the third outing for the iconic yokai gang, this time from 1985.
Metal Fighter Miku – Future sports from a past time. That time being 1994.
Hell Teacher Nube – yet more school bound spooky hijinks with this 1996 Shonen Jump adaptation.
It’s an Anthony & Brian-only episode of The Anime That Didn’t Make Us this time out. And one I should have posted about a month ago. Whoops.
Oh Family! – heartwarming orphantainment with a distinctly American flavour from 1986.
Haunted Junction – another late-night anime from 1997 that Anthony would have definitely not been allowed to watch.
It’s part two of our double Halloween podcasts with Bradley Meek. This time we delve back to 1997 for a look at Madhouse’s OVA series Night Warriors The Animation, AKA Darkstalkers.
The first of a Halloween double bill this week with Bradley Meek. In this episode we leap 30 years into the future to learn about what happened to all our Yokai Watch favourites. Well, two of them.

In which Anthony makes a prediction that proves to be wholly false. We run down 54 new TV anime you could be skipping over the next 3 months. From tiny monsters to monster condoms and everything in between, as long as that everything is mainly isekai shows.
