The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 72: Live Action Special! Alita: Battle Angel with Rachel

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

It only happens once in a blue moon, folks....we finally got a big Hollywood movie that does manga (and anime) justice?! I break from the podcast’s normal format to team back up with my pal and Battle Angel Alita superfan Rachel (aka @SporadicErratic on Twitter) to discuss this milestone for Alita fans everywhere! Listen as we first talk about what we HOPED the movie would include beforehand, and then our joy and excitement (and some minor nit-picking) afterwards in this extra special, extra long Alita Extravaganza! Also in this episode: we briefly discuss how translating manga has changed dramatically since the 90s, Rachel coins the phrase “crocapocalypse”, and we rant about pudding. Now go support this film in theaters while you have the chance!
