Anime is ART - Bonus Episode - Kumoricon 2018 and meeting Yoshitaka Amano

EK and Danny had an amazing time at Kumoricon 2018 and sat down the next day to record their thoughts!

We also share convention highlights and how this con reminded us of the reasons we podcast, and why art is so awesome.

Angel's Egg Crossover Cast - with Warui Deshou

EYour favorite anime podcast crossover is back! We team up again with the Warui Deshou podcast to dissect and gush over Mamoru Oshii and Yoshitaka Amano’s 1985 masterpiece art film, Angel’s Egg. CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of stillbirth, miscarriage, possible anxiety-inducing subjects such as loss of faith. ***The first half is spoiler-free, see timecodes below*** (This episode follows Warui Deshou's format, which uses more clips and sketch segments than we do, so be prepared for intermittent wackiness) ——— We discuss the film’s gorgeous aesthetics, the lives and other works of the principle creatives, their personal relationships to Catholicism and/or faith in general, and try to interpret what is perhaps the most inscrutable anime film ever made. Interpretations provided are our own, and we don’t claim them to be definitive, exclusionary or authoritative in any way. This episode is very personal, we spend a good deal of time talking about our personal histories and feelings ...
