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.
It’s your traditional Brian is rushing out the door for Xmas upload. We are taking a week off and then we’ll be back with all the anime from the fortnight that was December 16th to December 29th.

Haunted Junction – another late-night anime from 1997 that Anthony would have definitely not been allowed to watch.
Clara Valac once again takes centre stage on Iruma-kun as she tries to make Iruma-kun go head over heels for her. Meanwhile Thorkell and Askeladd go head over heels for Canute’s new attitude and Dino Girl Gauko loses it with some aliens.
