Let’s Go JoJo! #39 – The Sleeping Slave

Parting is such dolce dispiacere as Let's Go Jojo must once again return to a state of dormancy until our powers are needed again. While Passione looks forward to a brighter future our own outfit still has its eyes set on the present: Dr. Stone reaffirms its resolve to rebuild civilisation, Vinland Saga finds itself a stranger in a strange land, Fruits Basket makes new friends while Fire Force faces new foes and Gegege No Kitaro has nothing but scorn for modern society. Arrivederci GioGio!

Show #182: Felidae

We learn a whole new definition of Le Chat Noir as we delve into the moggy murder mystery they call Felidae!

Adapted from a best-belling book series by controversial German author Akif Pirincci, Felidae's matinee-friendly looking characters belie a pretty graphic thriller steeped in the murky atmosphere of a pulp novella. Does it have anything else going for it besides gruesome spectacle though? Frisky felines, misleading IMDB information and other pulp pussycats might help us pull it out of the bag!

Let’s Go JoJo! #38 Gold Experience Requiem

Look out behind you, it's the end of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind! Much like Diavolo we elect to rail against our inevitable fate and parcel out this denouement a little further, and the only way to understand this is to return to the beginning of the story for a strange encounter that may have had a hand in shaping the destinies of our heroes. The sun may be setting on Jojo but our fresh crop of anime is coming along nicely with Dr. Stone, Vinland Saga, Cop Craft and company providing all the crazy we need in here. This ain't over!

Let’s Go! #116 – Let’s Hide In A Barrel

Our catch-up continues with the slate getting whittled down a little bit further after some sudden left turns by our new entrants. Do You Love Your Mom...? Etc reveals it may love it's maternal main star a little -too- much, while Fire Force sputters slightly but still remains bright. Dr Stone and Vinland Saga are busy discovering new worlds as one seeks to rebuild while the other stoops to conquer (and reveal a storied history of cartoon Viking barrel concealment). We'll be in here if you need us!

Let’s Go! #115 – Let’s Craft Cops

It's a Summer season blowout as we comfort eat a whole host of new anime to assuage our melancholy at the absence of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. Cops & robbers & magic (oh my!), an embarrassing young man is further humiliated by his mother, some literal fire fighters come to our rescue while science will save the entire world! It may be lukewarm but it's what's for dinner!

Show #181: Drawn Or Alive! The Phil Silvers Show VS Top Cat

We've finally got the Let's Go Gang together for their most important case yet! Brian Smith joins us for another new format wherein we examine the transformative nature of live-action titles into animation or vice-versa and discover what is gained, lost or irrevocably changed in the process. To start with we look at one of the more notorious examples of a cartoon "homaging"a popular live sitcom, as Hanna Barbera was often wont to do, when Phil Silvers and his famous Sergeant Bilko persona are pitted against his hand-drawn doppleganger Top Cat. Plots, punchlines and even players are shared between the two but only one will make it out, DRAWN OR ALIVE!

Let’s Go JoJo! #37 – King of Kings

This stone arrow is turning out to be more of a hot potato as nobody from Giorno to Mista to Diavolo-possessing-Trish-in-Mista's-body can keep a hold of the darn thing long enough to unleash it's hidden powers. Will the gang get to the point before they get it right between the eyes from King Crimson? You'll find out on July 28th! In the meantime we'll have our fill of the freshest anime offerings of the Summer season!
