#123 - Night on the Galactic Railroad (& other Kenji Miyazawa anime)

#123 - Night on the Galactic Railroad (& other Kenji Miyazawa anime)

June 12, 2022

Put on your otter-skin coats for a journey into some classic Japanese children's literature. On this episode, Austin and Bill are talking about the 1985 classic anime movie Night on the Galactic Railroad based on the influential children's novel by Kenji Miyazawa. We're also talking about some adjacent anime including 1997's Spring and Chaos and 2012's The Life of Budori Gusuko. In the pre-show we talk about what we've been watching in the current anime season including Spy X Family, Ya Boi Kongming, and Birdy Wing. We recorded this a few weeks back so we're not completely up-to-date but it's good enough. Anyways, hope you enjoy the episode! Why are they cats? I guess you'll find out.

#122 - Our Top 15 Anime MOVIES of the Two-Thousand-Tens

May 9, 2022

Here it is! Our Definitive Top 15 ranking of the best anime movies of the 2010s. We said we were going to do this all the way back in episode 89 where we talked about our favorite TV series' of the decade, but shortly after that a little global pandemic came along and garbled our brains. Two years and 20+ episodes later, we finally came through! Please enjoy this fun episode that pretty well defines our tastes as a podcast.

Shout out to the Insert Credit Podcast for the template that we borrowed to do our rankings. If you have an issue with our list, cry to us on social media about it! Do it! For those that don't want to listen and just want our list, you can check it out on Austin's Anime-Planet profile here.

#120 - Girls’ Last Tour feat. BokuSatchii

#120 - Girls’ Last Tour feat. BokuSatchii

February 10, 2022

To continue our recent seasonal theme of reviewing anime with snow in them (see: Fate/Zero), we're back with a review of the post-apocalyptic iyashikei (meaning healing) series, 2017's Girls' Last Tour! But wait, is it possible for an anime to be post-apocalyptic and an iyashikei series at the same time? Excellent question. Listen to the episode and find out.

Austin hosts the show this week joined by long-time absentee member, Andrew, who provides commentary on the series' iyashikei elements as well as its World War aesthetics. Additionally, we have a brand new guest to the podcast; anime panelist and blogger Robby a.k.a. BokuSatchii. You may know him from Twitter and/or his numerous panels at Anime Weekend Atlanta, NakaCon, Anime Lockdown, and Crunchyroll Expo Online. Robby has been a friend of the show for a good bit and was happy to come on to discuss his favorite anime of the 2010s.

You can check out BokuSatchii's work over on his blog here: https://satchiikoma.wordpress.com/

#119 - Best Anime WE Watched in 2021

#119 - Best Anime WE Watched in 2021

January 17, 2022

We watched a LOT of anime in 2021, and not all of it was released then. So instead of doing a "Best of 2021" list, we just had a casual conversation about some of the shows we watched including Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Hinamatsuri, My Life as a Villainess, Wave! Listen to Me, Sound of the Sky, and Giant Robo; and of course some actual 2021 releases like Odd Taxi, Godzilla Singular Point, Zombie Land Saga R, Pui Pui Molcar, and Evangelion 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time (yes, you legally have to write out the full title).

Hosted this time by Austin (@bebopshock) and Bill (@wbforeman999).

Kotatsu Corner #3 - IDK, Post-Holiday Title.

January 10, 2022

Almost a year to the date we released our last Kotatsu Corner episode, but here's another one!

Kotatsu Corner is our side-show where we talk about non-anime related crap that we just have to get out of our system. On this one, we talk about our holiday season, what we've been enjoying lately, some highlights of 2021, and what we're looking forward to in 2022. Topics include Genshin Impact, Spider-Man, BlazBlue, Tales of Arise, The Lunar Chronicles, and audience submitted reflections on what media got them through 2021.

Hosted by Austin, Tori, Sarah, and Edwin.

#118 - Fate/Zero

#118 - Fate/Zero

December 26, 2021

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and/or Saturday with your friends and loved ones! To celebrate the holiday season, we're covering an entry in the long running Fate franchise for the first time, 2011's Fate/Zero, based on the light novel written by Gen Urobuchi, created by TYPE-MOON and animated by ufotable.

Our reasons for making this our Christmas special are flimsy at best, but it has a lot of snow in it so, sue us (please don't, we're poor). Fate/Zero is a prequel series to the story of Fate/stay Night but works as a standalone anime that you can enjoy with any or no familiarity with the Fate series. But is this a good place to start? How does this series hold up 10 years later? Who would we want to summon as Heroic Spirits to fight for us in the Holy Grail War? Find out now!

In the pre-show, Austin talks about seeing Macross Plus in theaters, Ryan talks about submitting panels to Momocon 2022, Will talks about watching Miyazaki's films for the first time in order, and other brief non-sequiturs. Enjoy!

#117 - Detective Conan! Franchise Intro & Review of Movie 9: Strategy Above the Depths

#117 - Detective Conan! Franchise Intro & Review of Movie 9: Strategy Above the Depths

December 15, 2021

One truth prevails, and that truth is that Bill is a huge Detective Conan fan. Yet, he's never had a chance to gush about it on the podcast. That changes today with our first podcast on the long-running mystery series, Detective Conan a.k.a. Case Closed! Bill introduces the franchise with a historical breakdown and explanation of what the essence of Conan is. Then, Bill and Austin review Movie 9: Strategy Above the Depths, Bill's chosen title to introduce to a total newb.

Before the review, Austin and Bill talk about what they've been watching and some current event news including Netflix Cowboy Bebop reactions, the passing of Keiko Nobumoto, the announcement of Netflix's Bubble, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure returning, and Austin being a guest on The Film Buds Podcast talking about Tokyo Godfathers.
