Doc was a guest on the excellent Blade Licking Thieves podcast! Huge thanks to Grant, The Heat and Zen for having him along for the ride. You all should totally subscribe to their podcast…if you like smart, funny things. See the show notes below for the episode description.
Today’s episode is a bit different than usual, as we’ve thrown out the usual review episode format and in its place have a special bonus episode featuring guest and friend of the show TheSubtleDoctor. You can find Doc’s writing at The Fandom Post and the excellent Wave Motion Cannon; or, you can hear him as one of the hosts on the awesome Warui Deshou Podcast — if you haven’t yet checked any of those fine things out, get on it! So, join us for a mostly thoughtless and ill-informed discussion on a variety topics, such as our thoughts on fanservice, Gundam, Gelato, the latest news, and just what the heckis anime anyways!?
It’s been a long time coming. We recorded this show back in August. We have no excuse…but better late than never! And, at least this podcast is about an excellent anime, Leiji Matsumoto and Daft Punk’s sci-fi masterpiece Interstella 5555.
In this first part of our Interstella show, we talk about what the thing is, how it came together, our personal histories with it, and some high-level, spoiler-free stuff we really really like about it. If you’ve never seen this anime, we hope we can sell you on it, and if you have seen it, then we hope you’ll hear about it ONE MORE TIME.
Also: what is the best scene in anime involving a shark? Who was the actress that inspired Leiji Matsumoto’s iconic female character design? Did Shadon spoil Harry Potter for you? Let us know.
