Remember when we were going to start a mini-series? Well WE STILL ARE because now there are TWO OF THEM! Kotatsu Corner is a mini-sode series where we take a break from our typical, highly organized episodes and just chat about whatever is on our minds.

Wow guys, this one took a while to come out! We recorded this way back in the far off time of June 2020 and had to delay it to make space for our 100th episode celebration. But now that's firmly in the past and we can release this into the wild! Bill takes us on a planet-hopping journey with Kaiba, Masaaki Yuasa's 2008 television series. He is joined in his body-swapping adventures by Tobias and Edwin, as they take a look at Osamu Tezuka's influence, the transhumanist themes, and the surreal visuals of the series, as well as plot Kaiba's place in Yuasa's catalog.

This time, Tobias, Austin, and Sully discuss Hayao Miyazaki's sophomore feature, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, an adaptation of his original manga work. We discuss the film's development, legacy, messages, the involvement of Evangelion's Hideaki Anno, and how a film about wearing masks and taking care of our fragile ecosystem is more relevant than ever in 2020.

Wow we finally made it episode 100! What better way to celebrate than by discussing the anime our name comes from... Neon Genesis Evangelion! What can really be said about Eva that hasn't been said already? Who knows, but we're going to give it a shot! The tales of Shinji, Rei, and Asuka have captivated the hearts and minds of audiences for 25 years and counting, with a new film on the horizon that will hopefully be released... eventually. After reflecting on making it to 100 episodes, we give an overview of the series followed by discussing how we first got into NGE, our favorite characters, the series' major themes, and what we think audiences young and old can get out of NGE in 2020 and beyond. (Note: Evangelion is an incredibly dense topic and for that reason, we elected to limit our scope to just discussing the 1995 TV series for this episode. Podcasts on the 2 original films and the Rebuild films will follow... one day!) Thank you so much to everyone who has listened to us, attended our panels, or otherwise supported us over the years. We'll continue striving to make the best podcast we can. Here's to another 100! Special thanks to everyone who contributed to our "Congratulations" chorus, including an incredibly special cameo from Amanda Winn Lee, director of the ADV & Manga Entertainment Evangelion dubs and the original voice of Rei Ayanami! Huge thanks to Amanda for helping us celebrate.

We're back again with another interview! For this episode, Sully and Austin had the chance to sit down with noted anime scholar Helen McCarthy! Helen has been a pioneer in the English-speaking anime community for almost 40 years, having brought anime programming to UK sci-fi conventions, founding and editing Anime UK, and authoring over a dozen books on anime fandom and research. Helen co-authored the monumental Anime Encyclopedia with Jonathan Clements, now in its third edition, written one of the definitive biographies of the God of Manga, Osamu Tezuka, which was published in English, Japanese, and Korean, and had the chance to interview Hayao Miyaki in-person for her book Hayao Miyazaki: Master of Japanese Animation. Sully and Austin reflect on Helen’s beginnings in anime fandom, what it took to publish the world’s largest English-language anime resource, and the importance of diverse voices in global anime scholarship. Helen also gives a sneak peak into her upcoming book: a collection of scholarly essays on the works of Leiji Matsumoto!
