Episode 204 – Best Anime of 2011

Best Anime of 2011

As we mentioned on episode 200, due to being busy with non-podcast activities, something had to give and so here is the first of our lazy, lazy, list episodes! Niall joins us as we run down our Top 10 anime of 2011. (And try to figure out the format of these episodes!).

These list episodes will alternate with regular DITB episodes when we are able to record. However due to conventions and other commitments, some weeks we’ll run classic episodes or guest spots.

For these list episodes our plan is to go back in 5 year intervals and run down our favourite anime from those years until we can’t. After that? You’ll have to wait and see!

Episode 148 – Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Madoka Magica

Brian finally agreed to watch Madoka Magica so now hopefully Anthony will stop suggesting it as a podcast topic. Joining us is Brett Pattison to provide Anthony with an ally as Brian grumbles about having to watch Akiyuki Shinbo & Gen Urobuchi’s 2011 treatise on the magical girl genre.

And in the Weekly Retro Recap we watch the first episode of Desert Punk.

Watch Madoka Magica on Netflix.

Watch Desert Punk on Hulu.
