The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 106: ReView: BASTARD!! OVA

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

I’m finally back after my brief hiatus with a brand-new episode! And 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. With Netflix’s new BASTARD!! anime just around the corner, what better time to revisit the original OVA that came out in the 90s? Grab your swords and your bikini armor and lets see if this one still holds up!

Anime Herald Guest article: Gunbuster


A gif of Noriko and Kazumi's first meeting in the Gunbuster anime, complete with shojo sparkles and flowery background.

If you're a Patreon supporter of Anime Herald, you might have noticed that I recently wrote an article for them about how shojo was a major influence on the original Gunbuster series. Well, now it's free to read for everyone! You can find the article here.

Fundraiser Raffle Results!

Thanks to all your generosity for the Fundraiser Raffle, the final total donations to the Transgender Education Network of Texas last month was $2,151! That is AMAZING!!

And congratulations to the winners of the raffle! The randomly selected winners chosen are: AJ and Tim! AJ won the choice for a full episode, while Tim won the choice for a short ReView episode! Congrats again, and thank you all for participating, it was a lot of fun! I’ll be announcing each of their respective episodes in the future once they are closer to actually coming out.

This was such a fun and successful raffle that I may do it again in the future! It’s so heartwarming to see everyone come together to help a great cause. Let’s keep supporting our transgender friends & family all over the world!!
