SOTSM x DITB: The Anime That Didn’t Make Us #1 – Captain Tsubasa, Fushigi Yugi, Bonobono


Niall recently took a wander down a hypothetical memory lane with Brian and Anthony over on Dynamite In The Brain as they sampled some anime series that could have been formative experiences in their youth had they ever been released in their parts of the world. Captain Tsubasa cashed in on 80s World Cup fever, Fushigi Yugi whisked us to another world before it was cool and Bonobono innovated children's television with the addition of existential dread. Find out how this experiment in manufactured nostalgia unfolded when you listen up!

Let’s Go JoJo! #18 – Head to Venice


While Niall makes a desperate last stand against sudden technical difficulties Brian and Dwayne bear the brunt of a relentless onslaught, where one enemy Stand user has barely been dispatched before another is in cold pursuit of Giorno and Mista on the road to Venice. Boss Bear laments his wasted life in Bonobono, children are pawns in a cruel inscrutable game in Boogiepop & Others and Gegege No Kitaro considers the ethics of assisted suicide in this fun-filled podcast instalment. What a frosty reception!

Let’s Go JoJo! #17 – Babyface


They're starting these hardened criminals younger every year! Melone plays midwife to an unsettling assailant as Babyface is dispatched to take down Bruno's outfit. Will they be able to keep it all together against this disturbing foe? Madness prevails as a lunatic takes over the asylum (and an innocent girl's body) in Mob Psycho 100, Raccoon becomes an unstoppable pranking machine in Bonobono, Karakuri Circus flies in the face of common sense with a coherent episode and Kitaro doesn't even think to plead insanity when he's put on trial. It's crazy man!

Let’s Go JoJo! #16 – The Grateful Dead Part 2


Bruno steps in to pick up the slack as he contends with the double trouble provided by Prosciutto and Pesci. With nothing but a spare bullet from the Sex Pistols as backup will he be able to defeat this deadly duo? It's not looking too good in other anime as a cute flashback episode takes a poignant turn in Bonobono, an old man's possessions are cruelly discarded in GeGeGe No Kitaro and an unrequited love is trampled by a mysterious corporate conspiracy in Boogiepop And Others. What a bummer!
