The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 68

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) title for episodes where I go back and watch 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. It’s October, but what if you’re not a fan of horror and still want to get into the Halloween spirit? Let’s see if this month’s ReView can help you out, as I revisit the 1994 Pioneer release Phantom Quest Corp!

August 30, 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of one of the weirdest, wackiest, and most beloved series to ever come out of Japan: Rumiko Takahashi’s Urusei Yatsura!

Haikara-san: Here Comes Miss Modern!



Yesterday I got to see a showing of Haikara-san: Here Comes Miss Modern (Part 1)! It’s a new movie adaptation of the classic late 70s shoujo series by Waki Yamamoto. I really enjoyed it and hope that the rest of the series of films gets a release here!

The story centers around Benio Hanamura, a girl growing up in Taisho-era Japan who wants to live free of the traditional gender roles of going to school simply to train to be “the perfect Japanese housewife”. A brash, fiercely independent (but sweet) girl, Benio would rather climb trees, practice kendo, and read modern women’s magazines than learn to sew or cook for a future husband. She wants to find love on her own terms! But all her plans come crashing down when she meets the man her father wants her to marry. Can she convince her fiance-to-be’s entire family she’s not bride material & end her arranged marriage?

The original Haikara-san is a beloved historical shoujo classic, in the same class as similar releases of the time like Candy Candy and The Rose of VersaillesIt’s still playing in some select theaters around the US til June 13 2018, so be sure to check it out if you think it sounds interesting!

Happy 5 Years, ANP!


Happy 5 Year Podcast-a-versary to The Anime Nostalgia Podcast! That’s right, yesterday marked the launch of my very first episode 5 years ago. Thank you for listening, from those who’ve been there from the beginning, to those who just started.

One of Japan’s biggest anime properties is not only finally available legally in the English-speaking world, but it’s also seeing somewhat of a renaissance currently throughout fandom! Join me and Legend of the Galactic Heroes superfan Diana as we give a surprisingly spoiler-free episode about what makes the series tick, why you should NEVER Google any of the character’s names, and how this classic anime seems to just keep getting better with age. (But don’t worry: just like this anime itself, it’s not all serious. We talk about crocs and rap battles, too!)

Happy 30th, Ranma!

September marks the 30th Anniversary of Ranma 1/2, which first debuted as a manga in 1987 in Japan! But did you know the anime has been released in multiple formats over the years? Here’s a (very) quick look & comparison at the history of Viz’s different releases in the US!

Click image for fullsize 

For years, Ranma 1/2 was Viz’s flagship title, and was a popular staple in most anime & manga fan’s collections at the time. For a while, they even produced Ranma 1/2 merchandise, including mugs, t-shirts, posters, clocks, and even a personal organizer. It wasn’t until the late 90s & early 00s that Ranma was knocked out of the top spot for fan favorite, replaced by a different Rumiko Takahashi title: Inuyasha.

It took many years to dub all of Ranma 1/2. The first VHS release was in 1993, and was dubbed in the old-school, analog way. Initial releases were slow, because it took a lot of time to produce & release them. Over the years, dub actors had to be recast for several characters, but they finally finished dubbing the entire series sometime around 2003 with the release of the final DVD box set.
Unlike Viz’s original VHS release, their initial DVD sets were a co-production with Pioneer for a brief period until they started handling their own DVD & blu-ray releases in-house. Viz also released several Laserdiscs for Ranma 1/2 with Pioneer, but not the TV Series--only the Movies & OVAs.

Speaking of the OVAs & Movies, the final Ranma 1/2 bluray set with the remastered movies & OVAs was released last week! That means all of Ranma 1/2 is now finally available in the US in high definition, as well as all of the manga! Fitting that it’s during it’s anniversary month.

Happy 30th, Ranma! Still looking good, even after all these years.

And speaking of Lupin, this month was Lupin’s 50th Anniversary! So part 2 of the podcast is me, Nitro, and returning guest Tricia (aka boobly) to chit-chat & ramble about Lupin as a franchise & what we love (and maybe don’t love so much) about it.

It’s episode 50! And to celebrate, I’m finally tackling a MUCH requested topic--that’s right, it’s Dragon Ball! Join me & my buddy Mark from Tapes From The Crypt as we discuss the unique world Akira Toriyama created, from the classic to Super, how Dragon Ball’s release in North America was oddly similar to Sailor Moon’s, and how fan’s immense love of the series is still a force to be reckoned with.

This month’s episode is another ReView! What is a “ReView” episode, you might ask? Well, it’s my highly-clever (ok not really) title for episodes where I go back and watch 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. While some of you are enjoying your shiny new Magic Knight Rayearth blurays, what better time to revisit the other Rayearth? That’s right, it’s the 1997 Rayearth OAV!

February 25, 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of Bubblegum Crisis’ original release in Japan! So to celebrate, I’ve invited Sean of Zimmerit.moe to talk all about it: the many western influences that inspired it, why it’s label of “cyberpunk” is a bit of a misnomer, and how some aspects of it were surprisingly progressive for an 80s OAV.
