Famous Anime Podcast – Shonen Jump: The Dragon Ball Years

After a few tweaks to the format following our pilot episode, here’s the first episode of the Famous Anime Podcast, the podcast all about Famous Anime. Elliot Page of UK Anime Network and Lewis Smith of Car and Mechanical are here to help us decide which of the anime based on Shonen Jump properties launched between the start of Dragon Ball and the start of Slam Dunk can enter the Famous Anime Podcast’s Hall of Anime Fame.

Other podcasts might tell you about unknown shows that you need to check out, but the Famous Anime Podcast is here to confirm that other people have heard about the anime you already know about!

Episode 144 – City Hunter


Phillip, aka the erstwhile Eeeper, joins us today to talk about the 1993 live action adaptation of Tsukasa Hojo’s manga City Hunter, starring Jackie Chan. Our first non-anime episode has taken almost a year of non-planning, and here it is, a completely different film than the one we were planning to do. Never mind, as we get into a film that is certainly memorable for all sorts of reasons, some good, some bad, some Gary Daniels in his pants.

Plus, this week’s Weekly Retro Recap is all Brian’s fault. That’s right, it’s Elfen Lied episode 1. What a mistake to make!
