Oldtaku no Radio #040 – Kase-san and Morning Glories

This episode of Oldtaku no Radio welcomes Erica Friedman for a review of "a story of survival," Kase-san and Morning Glories – both the anime adaptation and the manga! The anime's a short affair about a developing relationship, but there's a lot to learn from and love about choices made in its adaptation as well as its source material's publication. Lend us your ears for an hour, we'll sell you a love story.

Oldtaku no Radio #039 – Patlabor (OVAs)

It's time again for Anime Secret Santa, and a certain special someone left us one heck of a present to unpack: Patlabor! While we were given the OVAs and movies to review, we had more than enough to talk about with just the OVAs, so we'll get around to the movies on a bonus episode or three. We talk about the OVAs as a collection in general and then get into specifics about each of the six OVAs (counting the two-parter as a single OVA), and the results, knowing the inclinations of the two hosts, may surprise you! Happy holidays to all, and a special thanks to our secret Santa.

Oldtaku no Radio #038 – Perfect Blue

The works of Satoshi Kon are few but powerful, and his directorial debut, Perfect Blue, is no exception. This adaptation of Yoshikazu Takeuchi’s novel, Perfect Blue: Complete Metamorphosis, is a psychological thriller that follows the career of pop star and aspiring actress Kirigoe Mima. It’s biting commentary on idol culture and the ugly dangers therein. Join Jared and Ink and special guest Phillip as they dance around spoilers to bring you a deep dive into a deep film.

Oldtaku no Radio #037 – Higurashi When they Cry

There are several reasons why Higurashi When They Cry consistently finds itself on so many must-watch series when October rolls around, but that doesn't mean that it's a show for everyone. Listen in as Jared and Ink are joined by AGP's @QX20XX and Reverse Thieves' Alain Mendez to dig into the origin and makeup of this iconic series about a series of gruesome murders and mysterious disappearances in the small village of Hinamizawa. If you've yet to see the series, there's a spoiler-free section, and if you have seen the series, there's an indulgent, spoilerific section that follows. Enjoy!

Oldtaku no Radio #036 – Oldtaku no Oddities

If you don't remember MTV back in the '90s, when it was 98% music and 1% Kurt Loder, then you definitely don't remember the other 1% – the ballsy, experimental animated shorts of Liquid Television and the longer, more serial (but not any less weird) shorts of the Oddities animation programming block. Join Jared and Ink as they reflect upon their teenage cartoon obsessions by talking about Liquid Television's Aeon Flux as well as The Head and The Maxx from MTV's Oddities after a fresh rewatch of all three! And to mark our three-year anniversary as a podcasting duo, Jared and Ink reminisce about the past year as well as the two before that. So grateful to have you(r ears). Now press play already!

Oldtaku no Radio #035 – Barakamon

Looking for one of the cutest stories about a tortured artist? Look no further than Barakamon, which focuses on a professional calligrapher (who knew?) who butts heads with the Tokyo art crowd and is sent to live on a remote island to cool his head and refine his art. Doesn’t sound cute? Just wait until you meet the village brat Naru … not to mention an entire cast of characters so charming of course you’ll only find them in fiction. Jared and Ink discus the values of fluff, how they relate to some of the story lines, and more! Barakamon is currently streaming on FUNimation.com.

Oldtaku no Radio #034 – The Transformers: The Movie

The Transformers toy line is legendary, and the car-toon it inspired was hugely popular with many of the kids growing up in the '80s. But when one set of toys outwears its welcome in the marketplace and a new set of toys is ready to be sold, there remains a question of transition. The answer is a HUGE animated movie showcase that surprised just about everyone who saw (and heard) it. Bringing together familiar TV voices and some serious star power (Orson Welles, Leonard Nimoy, and Eric Idle to name a few), 1986's The Transformers: The Movie brought The Transformers to a new plane with more intense visuals, more mature subject matter, and a linear story unlike anything seen so far in the TV series. Join Jared and Ink as they talk giant (transforming) robots as well as the movie's inspirations and influences with none other than Patrick from The Cockpit.

Oldtaku no Radio #033 – Keijo!!!!!!!!

Get ready for Jojo’s Bustzarre Assventures as Jared and Ink talk about the 2016 sports parody Keijo!!!!!!!! by Xebec with special guest Basil from OSMcast. This shonen parody, which adapts a portion of Daichi Sorayomi’s manga (alt title: Hip Whip Girl), centers around a fictional sport wherein girls in bathing suits do battle atop different floating stages in a pool using nothing except for their butts and boobs. Don’t worry; we haven’t dove off the deep end – there’s quite a bit to muse on and laugh about regarding this amusing series. Listen and find out!

Oldtaku no Radio #032 – Girls' Last Tour

Originally meant to accompany our PEZ episode for a grand, post-apocalyptically themed episode, we're talking about the whimsical despair that is Girls' Next Tour! This anime features Takaharu Ozaki adapting Tsukumizu's manga (which we also discuss! ...briefly) about two friends, Chito and Yuri, exploring the world into which they've been thrust by war and trying their best to survive its fallout. This show is slice-of-moé solemnity at its best ... or worst. You decide. (We just talk.) Spoilers are woven throughout our commentary, so we advise you to check out Girls' Last Tour, currently streaming on HIDIVE, before listening. Although like all good road trip movies, the value of experience lies in the journey and not the destination.
