Anime: Ep 39 - Legend of the Galactic Heroes (with Andrew from Recovery of an Anime Junkie)

A good dictator or a corrupt democracy? In this podcast episode we are joined by Andrew from the Recovery of an Anime Junkie podcast in his second appearance. First, we have our usual housekeeping and our contest winner announcement (0-7).
We got some news like a new Rumiko manga, new Ghost in the Shell coming, and making fun of Andrew's three favourite anime in a call back to our very first anime episode (7-56).

In 1988, an OVA space opera series started and it went on to be regarded as one of the greatest anime of all time. That tile is called the Legend of the Galactic Heroes. We cover season one aka episodes 1-26, and we discuss, break down, and analyze this epic to the fullest extent we could (56-end).

Anime: Ep 36 - Gatchaman

Fire the bird missile! This episode begins with talk over season 2 of Netflix's Castlevania. Is the show worth checking out? Tori brings us up to speed over the next couple anime films he watched such as the Space Cobra movie (0-23).
We run over an updated moving bar which is some new shows we could possibly review that are now over 15 years old [Fall 2003] (23-35).

Our retro anime up for review is the 1970's superhero team hit called Gatchaman. The show entailed many spinoffs, OVAs, and movies, but was the original show any good and does it hold up (1:13-end)?

Anime: Ep 28 - Aura Battler Dunbine (with Brains from Trash Pandas Watch Anime)

Football is coming home. Plus, Brains from TPWA joins the crew in this episode. Tori has not one but two quest updates and he runs down Nodame Cantible and Spice and Wolf (0-32). Isekai anime is a major sub-genre in anime today. We discuss the state of isekai, what shows are associated with it, and more (32-1:44). Before isekai was even a genre let alone popular, director Tomino and Sunrise came out with a show called Aura Battler Dunbine in the early 80's. Is it worth going back to watch or is it simply a product of the time (1:44-end)?

Anime: Ep 27 - Trigun

The boys are back in town. Full cast for this one. Hiki, Tori, and JD start off with some recent bad news (0-23). Tori had a great idea for a discussion regarding if the anime from 20 years ago, specifically from 1998, still hold up. (23-1:15). In 1998, many anime came out that stands the test of time, are well regarded, and are brimming with nostalgia. In this episode, we review such an anime by the name of Trigun (1:17-end).

Anime: Ep 25 - Slayers (with Jay from Smack It Down)

For episode 25 not only do we have a guest in Jay from the Smack It Down podcast, but we also start off with some pretty good story time (0-19). Tori has another quest update. This time over a strange 2005 anime called Basilisk (19-32). We had a question for discussion from a listener about the best romance anime stemming from Maison Ikkoku (32-56). From there, we go into the great debate over Pokemon vs Digimon. We compare likes and dislikes over Pokemon the First Movie from 98 and the Hosoda directed Digimon the Movie: War Games from 2000 (58-1:42). As Jay is the guest, he chose the retro anime up for review to be the cult classic from 1995 called Slayers. Does it stand up today though? (1:42-end).

Anime: Ep 24 - SaiKano (She, the Ultimate Weapon)

Spring means romance is in the air. I guess a short intro is in order (0-4). As per request, we read some negative mail (4-13). We tackle some topical questions and a few more directed questions at the hosts. Been some time (13-55). We have reached the half way point in the Spring anime season, so that means it is time for a mid-season round up. We go over the status of 6 anime from the current season (55-1:28). Finally, the reason why we are all here. Time to review the tragic romance anime from 2002 by the name of SaiKano aka She, the Ultimate Weapon. Boy, this one sure was something (1:28-end).

On a glorious Patlabor Day, we at RLR are joined by Bcom from the Nerdom and Other Nonsense podcast as we introduce the cast and what's up (0-6). Do you enjoy music based anime?
