Memorial Stream for the Legendary Leiji Matsumoto


Hello, friends! This month on the Anime Nostalgia Podcast, I’m going to try something different. In honor of the passing of the iconic Leiji Matsumoto, I’ll be live streaming a fan memorial with translator Zack Davisson on March 19th, 2023 at 7PM Pacific time on my personal Twitch account here. The first part of the stream, Zack & I will be talking about Matsumoto’s life, his work, and why he is so important to fandom around the world. The second part of the stream, I want to open the floor to fans to share why they love Matsumoto’s work, why his stories were so special to them, or any other memories they’d like to share. I’ve decided that the best way to do this is by submitting written or recorded pieces from you, the fans! If you’d like to contribute to this part of the stream, feel free to either send a short recorded audio file for me to play on stream (preferably wav or mp3) OR, if you’d like me to read it for you, you can send short written submissions instead to AnimeNostalgiaPodcast(AT)gmail.com. Please get these written or recorded submissions emailed in by MARCH 17th, 2023 so that I have enough time to compile them all for the stream! Also, please note that depending on how many submissions I receive, I cannot promise I can share ALL of them, but I will try my best! You can also just come to the stream and chat with others about Matsumoto if you don’t feel like sharing anything personal. 

After the livestream, I’ll be releasing an edited version of the audio from the stream as this month’s podcast episode. So if you can’t make it, you’ll still be able to listen! 

Let’s all come together and share our love for the works of Leiji Matsumoto!

Hope you enjoy! 💘)

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 116: ReView: Urusei Yatsura Movie 1 - Only You


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

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. This month, to celebrate not only the new Urusei Yatsura TV anime and the month of Valentine’s Day, let’s revisit the very first Urusei Yatsura: Only You--the series’ first theatrical film! The whole Tomobiki gang makes the show a lot of fun, but can they satisfyingly fill a nearly 2 hour long movie? Let’s see what’s to love about it in this month’s rewatch!

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 115: ReView: Miyuki-chan in Wonderland

 

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

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. This month, we’re going down the rabbit hole to revisit a lesser known OVA based off a CLAMP title that came out in the 90s: Miyuki-chan in Wonderland. Is it a fun adventure, or should we forget we ever peered into the looking glass? Let’s find out!

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

2022 is just about over! So you know what that means–that’s right, it’s the Year in Review! And much like Krampus, Zee is back for the first part of the episode to discuss the results of my annual year-end survey as filled out by you, the listeners! And for the last stretch of the episode, the Artist Formally Known As Nitro, aka MDi, is passed the baton to help finish the discussion. What older anime titles were you excited to buy (sometimes again) this year, and what titles are you looking forward to coming out in 2023? We also talk about all the memorable news stories from throughout this long, seemingly never-ending year. Hear all the silliness, strangeness, sadness, and stress of this year; PLUS the winners of the survey giveaway in this extra long, nearly 4-hour long episode. Happy Holidays & Happy New Year!!

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 113: Creative Conversations with Abby Denson


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

This month, we’re returning to my Creative Conversations series! In these episodes, I talk to people in various creative fields making things today who were greatly inspired by anime & manga, and are using that inspiration today to make their own cool things. This time, we’re talking to comic artist, illustrator, and comic author Abby Denson! A longtime manga reader, Abby’s been making comics since her self-published days, and continues that DIY spirit with her latest series Kitty Sweet Tooth with Japanese artist Utomaru. Listen as we discuss her ‘90s zine roots, how BL inspired one of her early comics, and what it was like to table at Comiket in ‘97, along with answering your questions!
