October 15, 2019

Following up on our previous Summer Anime Impressions episodes, we're back with "Team Midpoint".

These shows will be running for more than one cour, so we're taking a break halfway to discuss our thoughts so far. Do they still burn as brightly as they did 13 weeks ago? Will they make history in the saga of anime canon?

Here's the ensemble we're bringing you today:

Also discussed: Link's Awakening, My Hero Academia, Dragon Quest XI, Untitled Goose Game, and more!

#81 - Horus, Prince of the Sun

#81 - Horus, Prince of the Sun

September 25, 2019

In this episode, Sully, Tobias, Austin, and Bill discuss Isao Takahata's directorial debut feature film, Horus, Prince of the Sun. We discuss the film's background, legacy, possible inspirations on The Legend of Zelda, and what we thought of watching it through our 2019, post-Ghibli eyes. In a lot of ways, it feels like an anime from the 60s, but in a lot of ways... it doesn't!

Buy Horus, Prince of the Sun on bluray from Discotek!

September 17, 2019

In this episode, Sully, Tobias, and Bill discuss Eiichi Yamamoto’s surreal, psychedelic classic Belladonna of Sadness, the story of a young French peasant woman who after a traumatizing event, uses the power of witchcraft to forge her place in her country’s national consciousness.

#77 - Farewell, Hamacon

August 7, 2019

A couple weeks ago, we were given the great pleasure of attending Hamacon in Huntsville, Alabama for the second year in a row as their Featured Panelists. This year's Hamacon was the last EVER and while we are sad to see it go, we are truly grateful for the great times and awesome friends we've made through it! 

In this con-versation episode, Tori, Tobias, Austin, and Edwin are joined by fellow podcast host, current co-director of Momocon, and former Director of Awesome at Hamacon, Basil Berchekas (@itsbasiltime on Twitter). Also, before we chat about Hamacon, Sully stops by to tell us about his experience traveling out to San Diego for Comic Con.

We also chat about the KyoAni arson attack, the history of Hamacon, our panels, and share con stories new and old.

#74 - Pride Month Special! Localizing LGBTQ Anime with David Wald

#74 - Pride Month Special! Localizing LGBTQ Anime with David Wald

June 25, 2019

To celebrate Pride month, Sully sat down with voice actor, script writer, and ADR director David Wald to discuss his work in working to dub and license LGBTQ themed anime, including Love Stage!! and Hitorijime My Hero

David is known for voicing Gajeel Refox in Fairy Tail, Bulat in Akame ga Kill!, Berg Katze in Gatchaman Crowds, and Tetsutetsu in My Hero Academia, and has been the ADR director for Love Stage!!, Hitorijime My Hero, Kokkoku, Bloom Into You, and the upcoming dub of Cutie Honey Universe.

In this episode, David discusses pushing to get more queer anime into the West, the place that LGBTQ fans have in the anime community, and introducing anime to a wider audience. Sully and David also talk about how anime can play an important role in the coming out narratives of LGBTQ fans.

Note: Due to connection issues, there are some drop outs on David's end from the mid point until the end of the podcast. Austin tried to edit around them the best he could but unfortunately, the sound quality is not the best.
