Put on your otter-skin coats for a journey into some classic Japanese children's literature. On this episode, Austin and Bill are talking about the 1985 classic anime movie Night on the Galactic Railroad based on the influential children's novel by Kenji Miyazawa. We're also talking about some adjacent anime including 1997's Spring and Chaos and 2012's The Life of Budori Gusuko. In the pre-show we talk about what we've been watching in the current anime season including Spy X Family, Ya Boi Kongming, and Birdy Wing. We recorded this a few weeks back so we're not completely up-to-date but it's good enough. Anyways, hope you enjoy the episode! Why are they cats? I guess you'll find out.

Here it is! Our Definitive Top 15 ranking of the best anime movies of the 2010s. We said we were going to do this all the way back in episode 89 where we talked about our favorite TV series' of the decade, but shortly after that a little global pandemic came along and garbled our brains. Two years and 20+ episodes later, we finally came through! Please enjoy this fun episode that pretty well defines our tastes as a podcast. Shout out to the Insert Credit Podcast for the template that we borrowed to do our rankings. If you have an issue with our list, cry to us on social media about it! Do it! For those that don't want to listen and just want our list, you can check it out on Austin's Anime-Planet profile here.

To continue our recent seasonal theme of reviewing anime with snow in them (see: Fate/Zero), we're back with a review of the post-apocalyptic iyashikei (meaning healing) series, 2017's Girls' Last Tour! But wait, is it possible for an anime to be post-apocalyptic and an iyashikei series at the same time? Excellent question. Listen to the episode and find out. Austin hosts the show this week joined by long-time absentee member, Andrew, who provides commentary on the series' iyashikei elements as well as its World War aesthetics. Additionally, we have a brand new guest to the podcast; anime panelist and blogger Robby a.k.a. BokuSatchii. You may know him from Twitter and/or his numerous panels at Anime Weekend Atlanta, NakaCon, Anime Lockdown, and Crunchyroll Expo Online. Robby has been a friend of the show for a good bit and was happy to come on to discuss his favorite anime of the 2010s.

We watched a LOT of anime in 2021, and not all of it was released then. So instead of doing a "Best of 2021" list, we just had a casual conversation about some of the shows we watched including Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Hinamatsuri, My Life as a Villainess, Wave! Listen to Me, Sound of the Sky, and Giant Robo; and of course some actual 2021 releases like Odd Taxi, Godzilla Singular Point, Zombie Land Saga R, Pui Pui Molcar, and Evangelion 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time (yes, you legally have to write out the full title).

Topics include Genshin Impact, Spider-Man, BlazBlue, Tales of Arise, The Lunar Chronicles, and audience submitted reflections on what media got them through 2021.

#118 - Fate/Zero

#118 - Fate/Zero

2021-12-2602:18:18

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and/or Saturday with your friends and loved ones! To celebrate the holiday season, we're covering an entry in the long running Fate franchise for the first time, 2011's Fate/Zero, based on the light novel written by Gen Urobuchi, created by TYPE-MOON and animated by ufotable. Our reasons for making this our Christmas special are flimsy at best, but it has a lot of snow in it so, sue us (please don't, we're poor). Fate/Zero is a prequel series to the story of Fate/stay Night but works as a standalone anime that you can enjoy with any or no familiarity with the Fate series. But is this a good place to start? How does this series hold up 10 years later? Who would we want to summon as Heroic Spirits to fight for us in the Holy Grail War? Find out now! In the pre-show, Austin talks about seeing Macross Plus in theaters, Ryan talks about submitting panels to Momocon 2022, Will talks about watching Miyazaki's films for the first time in order, and other brief non-sequiturs.

One truth prevails, and that truth is that Bill is a huge Detective Conan fan. Yet, he's never had a chance to gush about it on the podcast. That changes today with our first podcast on the long-running mystery series, Detective Conan a.k.a. Case Closed! Bill introduces the franchise with a historical breakdown and explanation of what the essence of Conan is. Then, Bill and Austin review Movie 9: Strategy Above the Depths, Bill's chosen title to introduce to a total newb. Before the review, Austin and Bill talk about what they've been watching and some current event news including Netflix Cowboy Bebop reactions, the passing of Keiko Nobumoto, the announcement of Netflix's Bubble, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure returning, and Austin being a guest on The Film Buds Podcast talking about Tokyo Godfathers.

We're back this week with a story that will make your head spin, around and around, like a.... well, you know. We're talking about the 1998 horror manga by Junji Ito, Uzumaki. The works of Junji Ito have grown in popularity significantly over the last few years with the re-releases of many of his major works in the United States. To celebrate the 2021 spooky season, Tori, Bill, and Austin talk about Ito as a creator, Tori "liking him before he was cool," Bill's binge reading, and of course the main event, Uzumaki!

10 years ago, a sweet pastel-pink magical girl and her saccharine adventures took the anime world by storm, and then promptly threw us all into a spiral of despair and Love(paper)craftian horror.  On this episode, we're talking about the 2011 modern anime classic, Puella Magi Madoka Magica and it's divisive 2013 sequel film Rebellion. Produced by Studio Shaft and written by the now infamous Gen Urobuchi, Madoka set a new standard for the magical girl genre in the 21st century, for better or worse. Austin, Tori, Sarah, and Ryan break it all down for you in this latest TIA Podcast episode. If you enjoy this or any other episode, leave us a Rating and Review on Apple Podcasts!

Would you believe that this episode was recorded AN ENTIRE YEAR AGO?! Because of production schedules, editing issues, school, work, an international pandemic, and generalize malaise, it took us forever to release this. Fear not true believer, the tales of Otaku Unite! are timeless. Actually, no, that's a lie. Join us in our second Otaku-mentaries episode covering the 2004 anime and fandom documentary, Otaku Unite! (listen to our first episode on Akihabara Geeks here). Otaku Unite! is a bizarre spectacle of half insightful anime history and half inexplicable sideshows. How little has changed in the anime community in 17 years! Listen to Sully, Austin, Bill, and Tobias guide you through this magic mirror into the anime community of the early 2000s. Also, as we do, we use this documentary as a springboard to talk about anime fandom issues in the present. Enjoy!

Hey everyone! Look, another interview! For the third entry in our Leiji Matsumoto interview series, Sully chats with Jonathan Tarbox about Matsumoto’s WWII comic The Cockpit and how it relates to Ivan Morris’s analysis of Japanese literature and the “nobility of failure.” Jonathan also talks about his experiences in the anime convention scene, working in the manga industry in Japan, and what makes The Cockpit one of Matsumoto’s most fascinating works, even without a proper English release. Jonathan Tarbox graduated from Oberlin College and did graduate work at the University of Chicago and Indiana University. Jonathan has worked as an editor at COAMIX and DC Comics, working on titles such as Claymore, Fist of the North Star, and Black Cat, and has taught at UC San Diego and California State University.
