Let’s Go JoJo! #1 – Gold Experience

IT'S BACK. The anime that was too rich for one podcast and ignited a proud tradition of weekly discussion returns, and this iteration of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is off to a flying start as we follow new hero/petty criminal Giorno Giovanna's exploits in a Stand user-infested Naples and his initial run-in with local capo Bruno Bucciarati. If that's not enough for you we also have a mountain of mutterings about the new anime season offerings: SSSS Gridman! Thunderbolt Fantasy! Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san! And all your ongoing & returning favourites! Let's get bigger! Let's get better! LET'S GO JOJO!

Show #171: Edgar Allan Poe's Extraordinary Tales

The days grow shorter and the nights ever longer as the eeriest time of the year approaches, so why not bundle up with a good scary book? Or better yet why not a succession of frightening stories in animated form, such as Edgar Allan Poe's Extraordinary Tales?

The writings of Edgar Allan Poe have been committed to film on countless occasions, his macabre short stories & poetry proving fertile ground for imaginative interpretation. Poe superfan and animator Raul Garcia took it upon himself to pay tribute to the man in this anthology piece featuring a stellar cast of horror film luminaries. Will this outing resurrect this ancient terror in the modern day? Or has the whole subject been done to death? Book talk, Halloween party plans and amazing restraint on Niall's part to not reveal the bizarre twist in The Murders In The Rue Morgue await if you dare!

Besides serving as a prominent reminder of just how long ago Futurama was on television, Matt Groening's latest original offering for Netflix had others taken aback for different reasons and wondering if this adult animated sitcom had anything new to offer in an increasingly crowded field. But does Disenchantment have a trick up its sleeve for the end of this season and beyond? Inaccurate comparisons, a predictable investigation of artistic references and probably far too much use of the high-pitched cautiously optimistic voice await you at the end of your quest!

On the flip side the Working Buddies take some time off for a family visit, the Banana Fish gang escape to Los Angeles and Planet With has already saved the day with time to spare. Who you gonna call?

Conceived in an era when the welfare of the planet was the cause celebre of film stars, politicians and the general public alike, FernGully presents an idyllic vision of our natural world and the innumerable reasons for humanity to value and protect it. However does its message cut to the core of this massive problem? Do its contemporaries perform any better? When does saying "YES" repeatedly in a Tim Curry voice stop being fun? (Never) The answers to these hard hitting issues and more await your ears!
