The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 108: Classic Devilman with Salvatore



Subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

Not only is June the 50th Anniversary of Go Nagai’s manga, but in the US June is also Pride Month! And at the request of AJ (who won the choice of a full podcast episode topic in my ANP Says Trans Rights raffle), we’re talking all about the iconic queer-coded action-horror classic Devilman! Go Nagai superfan Salvatore is back with me this month to talk all about the original 70s manga, TV series, AND the 80s/90s OVA series. We discuss differences between them, what we love & maybe not love so much about each version, and the absolutely MASSIVE influence Go Nagai’s work has had over manga & anime in the last 50 years in this fun, extra-long episode!

Thank you!

 


A little late, but I wanted to make some thank-you art for all of those who participated in the fundraiser back in March! Anime Nostalgia Podcast mascots Ret & Ro thank all of you who not only donated, but shared the link with others & helped spread the word. Without all of you, we never would have been able to raise so much for The Transgender Education Network of Texas!

Subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

Osamu Tezuka’s Unico is well-loved around the world, and many older anime fans’ first exposure to anime as kids. Now, we’re getting a brand new, internationally collaborated manga called Unico: Awakening, for both fans of the original and new fans alike! And this month on the podcast, I’m interviewing the author of this new Unico adventure, Samuel Sattin! Listen as we discuss the plot of this new Unico manga as well as: Samuel’s anime origin story, how he worked with both Tezuka Productions and Japanese artist team Gurihiru, what makes Unico so special, and why Unico’s kitty-cat friend has a new name.

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 106: ReView: BASTARD!! OVA

Subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

I’m finally back after my brief hiatus with a brand-new episode! And this month’s episode is another short ReView! What is a “ReView” episode, you might ask? Well, it’s my highly-clever (ok not really) name for episodes where I go back and revisit an older title I haven’t seen in a long time, and see if what I remember (and what my opinions on it) are still the same now that some time’s gone by. With Netflix’s new BASTARD!! anime just around the corner, what better time to revisit the original OVA that came out in the 90s? Grab your swords and your bikini armor and lets see if this one still holds up!

Sponsored review - Sorcerer Hunters: The Complete Series on SD Bluray

Recently, Rightstuf sent me several random anime releases to write reviews for! This is the second and final review I’ll be doing for them. While I did receive these titles for free, that had no influence on my final reviews. Thank you again, Rightstuf, for your support!

A screencap from the anime, showing most of the main characters with the text "The Sorcerer Hunters" over them.

There’s a joke among older anime fans that “Record of Lodoss War is what you hope your D&D campaign will be like, Slayers is what your D&D campaign will actually turn out like.” And if that’s the case, well…then Sorcerer Hunters must be what your D&D campaign turns into if some of your players were fans of Urusei Yatsura who maybe got just a little too rowdy.
