The Anime That Didn’t Make Us #10 – Oh Family!, Haunted Junction

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.

The Anime That Didn’t Make Us #9 – KATRI, J-DECKER, VIRTUA FIGHTER

Katri, Girl of the Meadows – a Finnish World Masterpiece Theatre outing from 1984.

Brave Police J-Decker – another in the Brave Series, this time sentient transforming robots fight crime in 1994.

Virtua Fighter – Sega’s groundbreaking fighting game comes to anime in 1995.

This time it’s Brian’s turn to completely misread a scene in a film~!
