The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 96: ReView: Prefectural Earth Defense Force

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 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, I’m revisiting an 80s OVA that’s not only filled to the brim with some pretty obscure otaku references, but is also a pretty obscure American DVD release (well, as of this recording, anyway!)–Prefectural Earth Defense Force. Does this former cult classic still hold up? Let’s find out!

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 95: Lupin III: The First with Tricia

 

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

Happy 2021! I’m starting the first episode of this brand new year with something a little different. This time, we’re watching a new anime based off a classic, well-loved franchise: 
Lupin III: The First! Lupin & the gang’s first ever CG animated film! And of course, I recruited friend & fellow Lupin fan Tricia to chat about it, and all things Lupin. Join us as we give our immediate thoughts after watching it and give a rundown on what we liked and didn’t like about this fresh new Lupin anime & how it stacks up to 50 years of Lupin III. (The first part of the episode is relatively spoiler-free, with spoiler-filled talk starting at around the 46:57 mark and continuing on for pretty much the rest of the episode, for those who don’t want to be spoiled!) Also in this episode: Nazis suck, which movie director should Lupin fight, and is Zenigata a himbo?? Tune in and find out!

Also - if you’re listening to this in a timely manner, you have until JAN 22, 2021 to enter my giveaway with Gkids to win your own copy of the movie on bluray here!! So hurry if you haven’t already!

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 94: 2020 Year In Review with Zee


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

2020 is finally almost over! So you know what that means–that’s right, it’s the Year in Review! And much like Krampus, Zee is back to help discuss the results of my annual year-end survey as filled out by you, the listeners! What older anime titles were you excited to buy (sometimes again) this year, and what titles are you looking forward to coming out in 2021? We also talk about all the memorable news stories from throughout this long, endless garbage fire of a year (though if you are utterly exhausted from hearing about 2020 news things, once you get around the time stamp 2:02:49, you can skip to right around the 3:36:56 mark!) I should note that, due to the year 2020 being ABSOLUTELY cursed, my original audio for this ep didn’t turn out great, so I was forced to fall back on my basic Skype recording, ON TOP OF the fact that the survey results got a little borked. So apologies that this episode is far from perfect, but hopefully it’ll still give you some laughs as we try our best to cast out the demons of this wild ride of a year in this extra long episode (with some bonus bloopers after the ending theme! Happy holidays!!)

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 92: Unico in the Island of Magic

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

Happy Spooky Season! This month, just in time for Halloween, I'm talking all about the cute and slightly terrifying Children's Horror anime film, Unico in the Island of Magic! And to join me to talk all about this kinda creepy classic based on the work of legendary Osamu Tezuka is Gigi from the Dub Talk Podcast! Listen as we discuss how Unico might have traumatized us a bit as kids, why we think the dub of it is so good, and why we think this is a great unconventional viewing choice for the Halloween season, even if you're not normally a fan of scary stuff! But don't worry, we don't just focus on the spooky stuff--there's plenty of fun to be had, too, as this episode also includes: Yoshiaki Kawajiri talk, our frustrations on lack of cute Unico merch in America, and poorly done voice impressions! Trick or Treat!!
