The Anime Nostalgia Podcast ep 05


Did you know that Hayao Miyazaki worked on part of the original Lupin the Third anime? Or that the animation team that would become Studio Ghibli helped animate some American films, like 1977's The Hobbit? In this episode, join me and longtime friend Nitro as we talk about Miyazaki's works before and after Studio Ghibli, Ghibli films that came out before 2002, as well as Ghibli's ties to things like Yoko Kano and video games! (I do apologize--the audio in this episode has some cracking & popping in places for some reason. I'm not sure if it was from something that happened while I was recording, but I couldn't get rid of all of it when I edited it. I'll make sure to be extra careful next episode!)

As always, feel free to give me your thoughts and comments on this and for future episodes! Thanks for listening!


  1. Why did you stop at 2002? Are you saving the past decade for another podcast? I didn't realize you were ending the podcast at 2002 and nearly drove off the road when you started wrapping up without mentioning Howl.

  2. Excuse me, I just remembered the name of the show.

    I'll just go stare at the wall and think about my life for a while.

    1. Aww, it's ok! I would've gladly talked about ALL of Ghibli/Miyazaki's works, but yeah--the podcast focuses on stuff 10 years older or OLDER, so we stopped around 2002 because most people are pretty familiar with that stuff (since those titles are much more common/easier to get than the older stuff used to be.)
