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!
Niall Flanagan joins us to discuss where we should send our ungrateful cartoon children to receive an education. It’s the Top 5 Anime Schools.
Aaron Long joins us to watch an episode from each and every one of the TV adaptations of Rumiko Takahashi’s work. From visa problems to penguins to pandas to yokai, it’s all here on this episode recorded 12th July. Not quite 2 months late! Hopefully I managed to catch every reference to Kitacon and get them edited out.
And when you’ve finished listening to this, go watch Aaron’s new cartoon Sublo & Tangy Mustard!
This week we take a look at six different anime shows’ Christmas episodes. And joining us to this are Bradley C. Meek, Elliot Page and Niall Flanagan. Featuring the seasonal romantic pitfalls of URUSEI YATSURA, a vengeful mad Santa in THE BIG O, barely anything seasonal in DIGIMON ADVENTURE 02, Christmas invasion plots in SGT. FROG, a rampaging snow man in HEARTCATCH PRETTY CURE and a banned episode of POKEMON.
PLUS: we play the traditional Xmas game of HOHOHO or NONONO?
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.
Struggling to keep up with us on this episode, or just want to know more about Urusei Yatsura? Visit Tomobiki-cho, a UY fansite that’s been around since 1996!
