Let’s Go! #120 – Let’s Go Home


Come on in and let's have a serious discussion about some anime, much like the various Viking factions plotting treachery and turmoil in Vinland Saga. Arts & crafts begins shortly after as Kaseki is lured in by the marvels of science in Dr. Stone before we give a friendly visitor a very warm welcome in Fruits Basket. Some folks just can't be satisfied though as Kitaro attempts to steer a wayward soul from a monkey paw/Wishmaster-style scenario. Make yourself comfortable why dontcha!

Show #183: The Thief And The Cobbler


A podcast thirty one accumulated hours in the making, SOTSM broaches the subject of the animation albatross known as The Thief And The Cobbler!

With the recent passing of the esteemed Richard Williams and the tributes that followed a pair of titles repeatedly stood out: his undeniably popular work Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and another convoluted and perhaps notorious production called The Thief And The Cobbler. Delayed, waylaid and recut into various releases in its unfinished state, many had given up Williams' grand artistic statement as folly. But is this being uncharitable to what he strove to achieve not just in the film itself but animation as a whole? Crime, corporate skullduggery and a years long quest for perfection almost distract us from savouring a cartoon spectacle the likes of which may never be seen again!

Let’s Go! #117 – Let’s Reinvent Ramen


Jojo's Bizarre Adventure departs the stage for now but Let's Go continues apace with all the other things you could be watching. Or perhaps not, as Cop Craft and BEM are unceremoniously dumped to make room for The Demon Girl Next Door, alongside the usual blaze battling in Fire Force, dastardly Danes in Vinland Saga and caveman cookery in Dr. Stone. Hope you brought your appetite!

SOTSM x DITB: The Anime That Didn’t Make Us #7 – Lupin III Part 3, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Nadesico


Dwayne Moloney, podcast man-about-town, took a trip back in time with Dynamite In The Brain to pore over anime titles of days past that could have been formative experiences in their youth were it not for pesky things like geographical barriers or their absence from terrestrial television. Getting the hypothetical nostalgia treatment this time around are the unfairly maligned Lupin The Third Part 3, the Giant Robo casting department that is Mitsuteru Yokayama's adaptation of Romance Of The Three Kingdoms and the dense mecha satire/homage Martian Successor Nadesico. Those were the good old days! (maybe)
