Also Frieza slaughters some would-be assassins and it's adios to Attack On Titan (for now!)

SOTSM x DITB: The Big O Season 2


It's a Sure Promise as we join back with the Dynamite In The Brain boys (and Elliot Page of UK Anime Network) three whole years later to put to bed once and for all just what's what with The Big O Season 2. Does it hold up a decade later? Has the ending become any clearer? Why haven't more shows ripped off that piston punch? The answers to most of these questions can be found if you LISTEN UP!

Let’s Go! Episode 45 – Let’s Get Hurt


Niall is missing in action once again; could this be the work of the vicious villain at large in My Hero Academia? More evil is unleashed as Freeza makes like a bat out of hell in Dragon Ball Super, Jeanne D'Arc falls foul of the law in Rage of Bahamut and a host of technical problems and memory lapses threaten to derail the whole podcast!

Show #149: Iria - Zeiram The Animation


Time to put on our thinking caps and get down to solving the mystery of the persistent popularity of Iria: Zeiram The Animation!

Stop me if you've heard this one before: a lethal alien lifeform is unwittingly unleashed by an evil corporation and it's up to one woman with a bunch of taped-together guns to vanquish this menace for good. Iria treads familiar ground, already well trodden by anime OAVs preceding it, yet its charms are not immediately obvious at first glance. Tokusatsu tours, heinous haberdashery and more lie in wait!

Let’s Go! Episode 43 – Let’s Go To Prison


Lots of powerful feelings on Let's Go as Ochaco takes on Bakugo in My Hero Academia, the Saiyans of Universe 6 are all tingly in Dragon Ball Super, the cast of Goma-chan have their faces numbed at the dentist, Nina and Kaisar feel the long arm of the law in Rage of Bahamut and we may even go to a birthday party in 100% Teacher Pascal (if we feel like it).

 A strange journey but down a path we're actually quite familiar with, director Rene Laloux delivers another travelogue to a bizarre world filled with amazing scenery and incredible possibilities. There are enough ideas in this feature alone to float a half dozen films, but are they given short shrift in service of the story? Contemporary cinema is compared, the secrets of its animation production are revealed and we get bamboozled by time travel for the second time in as many months!

THE SHORT VERSION
