This past weekend, Hayao Miyazaki celebrated his 79th birthday! What better way to celebrate than to review the film he regrets the most. On this episode, we take a look at 1992's Porco Rosso from Studio Ghibli (our VERY FIRST review of a Studio Ghibli movie). Bill and Austin also discuss some upcoming Third Impact Anime projects and our 2020 Anime New Year's Resolutions. We're hoping our dear listeners will help us stick to them...

Surprising nobody, the Third Impact Anime gang spent this year's Halloween weekend at a convention -- Anime Weekend Atlanta, to be precise! How did the convention fair in this unconventional date? What guests did they bring out? How many people will stay up until 3 AM to see a panel about anime-inspired musical theater!? All these questions are answered in our convention report, starring Ryan, Sully, Andrew, and Tobias.

Happy Black Jack-sgiving! Or, Black (Jack's) Friday? Either way, he'd be the best one to slice the turkey. This episode, we're gathering around the dinner table to discuss the Osamu Dezaki directed film based on the classic Osamu Tezuka character, Black Jack: The Movie! Joining us for this family get together is returning champion and "question-asker-supreme," our wonderful friend Basil from OSMCast. Enjoy!

Note: This episode was recorded before Halloween and intended to be released before we went to Anime Weekend Atlanta but hey, we had a convention to prep for so please pardon the outdated info in the beginning. To stave off the inevitable arrive of Thank-Christmas-giving, we're here to extend the Halloween season just a bit with our post-Halloween special on legends and yokai in the TV series Yamishibai. For those unaware, or if you didn't listen to last year's Halloween special, Yamishibai is an anime anthology series consisting of a bunch of spooky short stories. This year, we picked 2 episodes each to explore the urban legends, yokai, or cultural elements they were based on. Please enjoy!

Following up on our previous Summer Anime Impressions episodes, we're back with "Team Midpoint". These shows will be running for more than one cour, so we're taking a break halfway to discuss our thoughts so far. Do they still burn as brightly as they did 13 weeks ago? Will they make history in the saga of anime canon? Here's the ensemble we're bringing you today: Fire Force (Bill) Vinland Saga (Ryan) Ensemble Stars (Tobias) Also discussed: Link's Awakening, My Hero Academia, Dragon Quest XI, Untitled Goose Game, and more!

In this episode, Sully, Tobias, Austin, and Bill discuss Isao Takahata's directorial debut feature film, Horus, Prince of the Sun. We discuss the film's background, legacy, possible inspirations on The Legend of Zelda, and what we thought of watching it through our 2019, post-Ghibli eyes. In a lot of ways, it feels like an anime from the 60s, but in a lot of ways... it doesn't! Buy Horus, Prince of the Sun on bluray from Discotek! Thank you for listening! Want to support our podcast?

#77 - Farewell, Hamacon

2019-08-0702:25:08

A couple weeks ago, we were given the great pleasure of attending Hamacon in Huntsville, Alabama for the second year in a row as their Featured Panelists. This year's Hamacon was the last EVER and while we are sad to see it go, we are truly grateful for the great times and awesome friends we've made through it!  In this con-versation episode, Tori, Tobias, Austin, and Edwin are joined by fellow podcast host, current co-director of Momocon, and former Director of Awesome at Hamacon, Basil Berchekas (@itsbasiltime on Twitter). Also, before we chat about Hamacon, Sully stops by to tell us about his experience traveling out to San Diego for Comic Con. We also chat about the KyoAni arson attack, the history of Hamacon, our panels, and share con stories new and old.

If you haven't heard by now, Final Fantasy VII's long awaited Remake is coming out next March! We got a ton of new information about it at this year's E3, so of course it's the perfect time to revisit Final Fantasy VII in anime form! Austin, Tobias, and Tori are joined by our gaming pals, Will and Ryan of Mid Shelf Gaming, to discuss the 2005 film Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, as well as it's 2009 "Complete" version and other adjacent FFVII anime projects.  We discuss how we watched the film for the first time back in the day, how Tifa is really the main character, how this movie is only almost all fan service, and much more!

To celebrate Pride month, Sully sat down with voice actor, script writer, and ADR director David Wald to discuss his work in working to dub and license LGBTQ themed anime, including Love Stage!! and Hitorijime My Hero.  David is known for voicing Gajeel Refox in Fairy Tail, Bulat in Akame ga Kill!, Berg Katze in Gatchaman Crowds, and Tetsutetsu in My Hero Academia, and has been the ADR director for Love Stage!!, Hitorijime My Hero, Kokkoku, Bloom Into You, and the upcoming dub of Cutie Honey Universe. In this episode, David discusses pushing to get more queer anime into the West, the place that LGBTQ fans have in the anime community, and introducing anime to a wider audience. Sully and David also talk about how anime can play an important role in the coming out narratives of LGBTQ fans. Note: Due to connection issues, there are some drop outs on David's end from the mid point until the end of the podcast. Austin tried to edit around them the best he could but unfortunately, the sound quality is not the best.  Thank you for listening!  If you'd like to support our show, please consider sharing our show with your friends, or donate to us on either Ko-Fi or Patreon!

So while some jerks were in Atlanta on Memorial Day weekend, the rest of us were in Raleigh for Animazement! The con brought us out as Featured Panelists, doing what we do best: talk way too much about Japanese cartoons. We had a total of 24 hours of content to provide over the weekend, some new, some old. As we’ve never really talked in-depth about our panels on the podcast, we break all of them down in this Dynamaxed episode of the Third Impact Anime Podcast. If you missed Animazement, or are still feeling those post-con blues, this podcast will transport you right to the halls of the Raleigh Convention Center, that’s the Third Impact Anime Guarantee™.

Last weekend, at Animazement in Raleigh, NC, Sully got the chance to sit down with voice actor Linda Young, most famous for her iconic portrayal of the evil Frieza in the first Funimation dub of Dragon Ball Z! Besides Frieza, Linda has a long history of acting and voice work, from stage and commercials, to other anime roles. Notably she can be heard as Genkai in the dub of Yu Yu Hakusho, and the land lady in Double Decker. Huge thanks to Linda for coming on the show, and to Animazement for making this possible!  Thank you for listening!  If you'd like to support our show, please consider sharing our show with your friends, or donate to us on either Ko-Fi or Patreon!

Last weekend at Animazement in Raleigh, NC, Bill and I had the pleasure of having Robert Woodhead on the show. Robert is the Founder and CEO of Wilmington, NC's AnimEigo, one of the oldest anime licensing companies in North America. Anime fans these days would know them best for their highly successful Kickstarter campaigns to re-release titles such as Bubblegum Crisis, Otaku no Video, Riding Bean, and most recently, Gunsmith Cats.  Huge thanks to Robert for coming on the show! And thanks to Animazement for making this possible.  Note: Please pardon the audio quality on this episode. It was recorded with a phone on the convention floor, but it sounds better than you'd think?
