What was it like being an anime & manga fan before the 2000s? And were some of my favorite anime series really as good as I remember them? Welcome to the Anime Nostalgia Podcast, a mix of anime & manga history, reviews, and talks with other fans on titles and aspects of fandom from everywhere from the 70s to the 90s!

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 112: Berserk '97 25th Anniversary with Mayra
October is not only spooky month, but it’s also the 25th anniversary of the very first Berserk anime adaptation! So what better time to discuss this dark fantasy horror series with my good friend and huge Berserk fan, Mayra, who you might remember from my episode on the oral history of anime penpaling! For the first part of the episode, we go over the history of Berserk, some of it’s main characters, celebrating Kentaro Miura’s original manga, and why it’s such a notable & important work. Then the second half is Spoiler Talk, for all of you who’re already familiar with the series! Please note that since Berserk IS a dark fantasy that contains a LOT of heavy topics, we do discuss things like dealing with trauma, etc. in the Spoiler half of the podcast.

Happy New Urusei Yatsura Day!
Surprise, Darlings! To celebrate, I’m trying something new - I recorded a live reaction commentary podcast while I watched ep 1 of the new series, and you can listen to it by tipping me a whole dollar (or a little more, if you feel like it!) at my ko-fi shop here! If enough people seem interested, I could make this a weekly thing, and possibly even have friends record with me on future episodes! So if you think that sounds cool, show your support! Thanks, everyone, and enjoy new Urusei Yatsura, da cha~!
