T0013923p

 

Bradley C. Meek and Dwayne Moloney join us to ostensibly talk about the 2012 One Piece movie, Film Z. However, Anthony has lots of questions about One Piece, and so it ends up more of a general One Piece discussion.

Plus all the usual features: WATCHUWATCH, Major Episode 2 is our Weekly Retro Recap and a game! This week it’s ANIME ALPHABET.

NB: There’s a few connection problems with Bradley late in the episode due to his housemate watching things on Netflix, but they are mostly confined to the game section.

It’s been over three weeks since we recorded an episode, can we remember how to podcast? Lewis Smith joins us to find out and to discuss the 2013 Dragon Ball movie, BATTLE OF GODS. And a whole lot more besides. For instance the inability to purchase back issues in the international WSJ app, something that was remedied hours after we recorded this, making us look like instant dummies.

All this plus our Weekly Retro Recap, which this week is episode 1 of SAMURAI 7.

Bradley C. Meek is back with us for our first episode of the new year, as week talk all our favourite things from the past year of anime. That’s right, it’s an hour and a half of singing the praises of one Mako Mankanshoku.

A few other topics manage to shoulder their way in, including the first Weekly Retro Recap of 2004 – Agatha Christie’s Great Detectives Poirot and Marple.

NB: this was recorded before Episode 12 of Kill La Kill aired. Had we seen it, this podcast might have been us mainly talking about that.
