#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!
