Anthony and Brian take a look at Urusei Yatsura’s first theatrical outing Only You. Its director Mamoru Oshii is not a fan, but the series creator Rumiko Takahashi is. Will we be, in this tale of Ataru getting engaged with another Alien Princess!
As promised in last year’s Angel’s Egg episode, this year we watched
Carl Colpaert’s In The Aftermath, a strange hybrid of Angel’s Egg and a Wasteland themed LARP.
It’s likely for this reason that we couldn’t find a guest for the show…
It’s that time of year when we like to get eggy! No, not Easter, it’s DITB’s annual Angel’s Egg podcast. Joining us this time around we have Aaron Long and Grace Chan. Will they find it a good egg, a bad egg or a curate’s egg? What new things will Brian and Anthony glean from this year’s viewing? Listen and learn.
As promised, it’s our second annual Angel’s Egg episode. Who’s joining us to watch Mamoru Oshii’s dreamlike masterpiece? It’s Bradley Meek!
Featuring, faux cineaste snobbery that probably sounds like real cineaste snobbery, incorrect information about physical media availability, wild speculation on Mamoru Oshii’s personal life and a quiz about eggs.
Niall Flanagan from Secret of the Sailor Madness & Let’s Go JoJo joins us to discuss 1999’s Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade. A tale from Mamoru Oshii’s Kerberos Saga, directed by noted perfectionist Hiroyuki Okiura, can it live up to Anthony’s expectations? Find out on another episode of Dynamite In The Brain.
Philip O’Connor (and assorted kitchen noises) is back on the podcast, to talk Mamoru Oshii’s 1985 enigmatic OVA, Angel’s Egg (ova? egg? geddit?). Plus, the last Just Enough To Bluff for the foreseeable future is another Oshii project – Patlabor on TV. And Brian is really, really tired.
Jon Anning joins us to make good on our promise to watch Mamoru Oshii’s 2004 movie, based on Masamune Shirow’s manga, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence. AKA the one with barely any Major. Plus we play a game of “Anime TV Cops”. And that’s about that.
Episode 150! And what better way to celebrate than discussing the 1995 film Ghost In The Shell with Jon Anning? Turns out there is a better a way, to celebrate with cake, in a game we like to call BATEAU OR GATTEAU?
Even after that there’s room for des
sert, Des sert Punk that is, as it enters week 3 of it’s Weekly Retro Recap.
Bradley C Meek from THEM Anime Reviews joins us to talk Urusei Yatsura and the film Beautiful Dreamer. It’s a long one and we will spoil the hell out of this 1984 film that is now out of print, and so it doesn’t really matter. As well as lots of UY talk, we digress into Brian’s WAR ON NARRATIVE, Lupin III and Mamoru Oshii’s fear of eating in.
