SOTSM x DITB: Japan Animator Expo Part 2

The exploration of the weird and wonderful auteur anime showcase continues apace as Niall and the boys immerse themselves in the everyday lives of ghosts, robot girls and mascot characters, solve a murder, indulge in a vague yet also somehow heavy-handed political allegory and even throw in a bit of good ol' fashioned SEX and VIOLENCE with MACHSPEED. What does that even mean? You'll just have to listen up!

Show #144: Dexter's Laboratory - Ego Trip

A podcast as short and to the point as the small man himself as we take a brief journey with Dexter's Laboratory: Ego Trip!

An ego trip by name and by nature as this TV movie served to cap off the run of the successful TV series with an all guns blazing bonanza that maybe goes a little too all-in on the action and a little too light on the beloved weirdo humour. And that's without going into the time travel aspect, which neither IMDB or Niall have grasped fully, and the secret childhood wishes of your hosts revealed live on air!


Dexter, Dexter, Dexter and Dexter

A cool robot nonetheless

SOTSM x DITB: Japan Animator Expo Part 1

Niall got a little bit high-falutin' over on Dynamite In The Brain as we sampled some of the cutting edge animated shorts brought to life by the talented folks who contributed to Japan Animator Expo. The first batch of twelve are consumed, covering such diverse topics as dragon dentistry, apartment life, the career of Koichi Yamadera and all the tenuous Neon Genesis Evangelion tie-ins you can handle! Which are cream of the crop and which are the slops? To find out you'll have to listen up!

Let’s Go! Episode 36 – A week late and a dollar short

A bonanza of banter belated by Brian's back pain! A fond farewell is bidden to Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid but luckily the dragon girl-shaped hole in our hearts is conveniently filled by Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul. No dragons in Dragon Ball Super at the moment but we do have a host of other supernatural entities gearing up for a fight, plus all the usual forest friends, super students and rowdy wrestlers.

Meanwhile some familiar faces return as My Hero Academia goes back to school, Attack On Titan breaks back in and most importantly Goma-chan falls off the back of a lorry.

Show #143: Pilot Pot Luck - The First Course!

We're trying something a little different this time, or it'll seem somewhat familiar depending on how long you've been listening, as we sit down to our first serving of Pilot Pot Luck!

Click Here To Download (Right Click, Save As)

The animation world is a swirling maelstrom of media, some of which is bound for glory and others that never venture any further. For this hopefully recurring format we'll be picking out some of those promising pilot episodes and demos and evaluating just how far they might go, or if history has shown the contrary then why that wasn't the case. On the inaugural menu we take in the Cartoon Network-ready randomness of Infinity Train, take a journey to discover The Reward and struggle in vain against Constant Payne! Grab some earphones and dig in!
