Inferno Cop. Nuff Said.
We’re back to looking at films/OAVs/specials from 10 years ago, and today it is 2003’s LUPIN III special. Where, get this, rather than stealing treasure, he has to return it. I know, right?
To help us deal with this strange turn of events in the life of everyone’s favourite thief, we have Bradley C. Meek on board. We’ll also have a game of GUESS THE EUROPEAN and ZATCH BELL will attempt to make it past week two of its stint in the Weekly Retro Recap slot.
Gary Hedges joins us today to talk about Slayers The Motion Picture (1995), Lina and Naga’s first animated outing together. Plus all the usual features, with this week’s Weekly Retro Recap being episode 1 of Zatch Bell.
And yes, there is a game. One which we had to record twice as the rules in the first attempt made it something of a disaster. Is the final version any less of a disaster? You be the judge!
Aaron Long joins us again today, to talk about Memories, the 1995 anthology based on the works of Katsuhiro Otomo. That’s MAGNETIC ROSE, STINK BOMB and CANNON FODDER, three excellent short films. And because of what’s in this week’s Weekly Retro Recap, we guarantee that this review of Memories contains more references to MR STAIN IN JUNK ALLEY than any other you can find on the internet.
Plus we play a game of MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THESE as Aaron tries to improve on the performance in the whale-based quiz from the Mind Game episode.
Elliot Page from the UK Anime Network podcast and Epiloguists joins us with the returning Keepers of the Secret of the Sailor Madness, Niall Flanagan and Dwayne Moloney to talk the anime adaptation of the second part of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, BATTLE TENDENCY.
And boy do we talk about. We talk about it for almost three hours. So expect spoilers by the truckload.
Plus all the usual features are here, including Ninja Scroll making it’s debut in the Weekly Retro Recap and rousing game of JOJO or BOBO?
Greg Driver joins us today to talk the 1987 & 1990 Devilman OAVs. Underground discos, spurned bird women and Stonehenge sending a message to the stars. We try to make sense of a great OAV series that unfortunately fizzled out before it really had a chance to get going. And throughout the episode Brian fails to keep a handle on what Miki Makimura’s name actually is (Maki? Miki? Maku?)
Plus, the UK anime releases, WATCHUWATCH, Dear Boys enters it’s first week in the Weekly Retro Recap and we round off with a game of THE CUTS ARE RIGHT!
Hey, hey the gang’s all here! That’s right, Anthony is back and just in time to talk Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie with guests Lewis Smith and Ebbie AKA bizarrejelly5.
We’ve all the usual nonsense, WatchUWatch, Weekly Retro Recap, UK anime releases, plus talk about the inaugural GEMUCON that everyone bar Brian went to.
Then we get into it with the 1994 animated motion picture about men and women wandering the world getting into fights.
Here is half the episode that this episode was meant to be. Due to some technical problems, we lost the part of the episode containing the topic. Well bits of it. Enough to make it unintelligible. Plus Anthony was into week two of his hangover and so it was just me and Bradley again.
Nevertheless, friend listener, you shall not be denied your DITB fix. Here is the opening of the lost episode, reforged into a mini-episode. We talk A Letter To Momo, Gorillaz, Blood C and more.
And we finally have a “lost episode” like all good podcasts have.
Anthony was super hungover the day we recorded this so he’s not on this episode.
Filling in for him is Bradley C Meek. And considering the pair of us make this episode take almost 2 hours, it was probably for the best that there weren’t three of us on the podcast.
First up we talk about all the winter anime we watched, then we look ahead to the spring season shows and what excites us there. And that’s pretty much it.
Apart from the week’s UK anime releases of course, and the Weekly Retro Recap. With Anthony absent can Tomorrow’s Nadja survive another week, or will Brian send it on its merry way? Find out on another fun packed episode of the show twitter calls DITB.
