Vintage Anime Club Podcast

A group of friends, a disc of anime, a bottle of wine...better make it two. We're an anime podcast taking a look back at some older anime titles on physical media, and seeing if they still hold up or not. Sometimes time lets us appreciate overlooked titles, while other instances require us to remove those rose-tinted glasses. So grab a glass of wine and have a listen.

A group of friends, a disc of anime, a bottle of wine... Better make it two bottles.

Dec 14, 2017

On this very special episode, we decide to throw all the rules out the window and go over what we feel will become a classic anime title twenty years from now: Makoto Shinkai's your name. And you know what that means, right? SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS! Seriously! Join Ed, Kate, Dennis, Han, and Garrett as we try to break down this film. And please go see this movie before listening to this episode.

On this episode, Dennis, Eve, Han, and Karen are joined by special guest Bryan Newton, director on Rick & Morty and previously Teen Titans GO! plus host of the Animation Success Stories Podcast. Bit of a downer in the intro as we discuss Hiromi Tsuru's passing and Nobuhiro Watsuki's arrest. The discussion does pick back up as we discuss the banned from Toonami episode "Hot Springs Planet Tenrei" including the fashion choices, fan service, villain ineptitude, and just all in all silliness of it before we get into the three-episode finale. The big fights at the end, the reveal of the mysteries behind the Galactic Leyline and Melfina, ludicrous space ship combat! What will happen to the crew of the Outlaw Star at the end? Listen to our discussion, and feel free to add your own on social media or email, like listener Andrew. A special thank you for listening at the end of the episode! And who let that cricket in here?!

On this episode, Alcuin returns as a guest as Dennis, Ed, Kate, Karen, and Han continue going over Outlaw Star. We also talk a little about the recent North American premieres of Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel - I. Presage Flower and Takeshi Miike's 100th film Blade of the Immortal. We also talk the Outlaw Star spinoff show Angel Links, Jim's innocent and pure love, the best space fight so far in the series, return of the MacDougall Bros., Gene's intimacy issues, and how to survive on a planet with greater gravity.

Thanks to special guests Han and Alcuin (Instagram: @different_elves) for joining this episode.

Nov 3, 2017

On this episode Dennis, Ed, Kate, Caitlin, Garrett, and Karen are joined by Han to discuss episodes 15-18 of Outlaw Star. We discuss the Anten Seven, emo Gene, Captain Ahab and Moby Dick, Harry MacDougall's mechanical MacArm, the poor treatment of Melfina in half of these episodes, fighting for love, Firecat's fate, and the return of the Caster gun. We also discuss Aisha's cooking, Aisha's nickname for Suzuka, Aisha's work ethic, and what if Aisha were Jim's partner instead of Gene. It's a very Aisha focused podcast this time. You better get ready.

Thanks to special guest Han for continuing to stop by and drop some wine knowledge on us.

Dennis, Ed, Kate, and Garrett are joined by Sanjay and Rishon for some more Outlaw Star discussion. We delve into the great space race, a real introduction for the MacDougall brothers, biohacking, "Is This Filler" along with comparisons to some Cowboy Bebop episodes, and weird spaceship shenanigans.

Thanks to special guests Sanjay (@sanjay.vas) and Rishon (deviantART @ bishounenizer), who unfortunately had to attend a function before we could end the episode.

Gene Starwind, on this episode the Vintage Anime Club is once again joined by Han to continue discussing Outlaw Star. Gene Starwind, there will lots of Fred Luo talk, the ending of Gene vs Suzuka, sassy Gilliam being sassy, filler episodes, and off-model characters. Gene Starwind, there is also the confusing manner in which Gene is in debt to Fred, or vice versa (not really sure). Gene Starwind, your journey continues in these podcast discussions!

Sep 22, 2017

On this episode, Dennis, Ed, and Kate are joined by now regular show members Caitlin, Garrett, and Karen, plus special guest Han as we discuss the first five episodes of the Toonami classic series, Outlaw Star. A definite fan favorite now seeing a new resurgence with a recent Funimation re-release plus a re-airing on Toonami (as of this recording). We also discuss, some of the broadcast versus uncut differences, how much of a badass Hilda is, parallels between Outlaw Star and Firefly, and many questions about the Ctarl-Ctarl Empire.

Special thanks to returning guest Han for joining us.

Dennis, Diana, Ed, Kate, and Sam are joined by Garrett and Karen to discuss Escaflowne: A Girl in Gaea, more commonly referred to as Escaflowne: The Movie. Since most of the actors return for their respective roles, we don't really go over who played who in this episode, which is a first. We have many opinions especially in comparing it to the TV series. So join us on the final trip to Gaea.

On this episode, Dennis is the lone host joined by returning guests Garrett, Sanjay, and Rishon to discuss the Funimation release of The Vision of Escaflowne. A new dub! Uncut version, too! After we get to know Rishon's anime origins, we get to delve into the 2016 re-release of the series that was partially funded via Kickstarter. We talk about the deleted scenes that most of us haven't seen until this release, some name and place pronunciations, technical issues of the physical release, and of course, a very much in depth talk comparing the new dub cast with the old dub cast. Dennis also gets a further surprise in one of the special features. Now, let us return to Gaea once again!

On this episode, Dennis, Ed, Eve, and Kate are joined by Caitlin, Garrett, and Han to talk Eve's pick, the 1992 OVA Tokyo Babylon, from famed studios CLAMP (for the manga) and Madhouse (for the animation production). We talk about Subaru's onmyoji powers, Hokuto's fashion sense, and Seishirou's true motives. Also, thoughts on Japanese Oasis?

Short episode today as Kate, Ed, Dennis and guests Caitlin and Garrett bore Han with our SDCC 2017 lows and highs. We talk some of the off-site events, shuttles, panels, Marvel, cosplay, lines, and then some. And then we just catch up on what we've been watching, which leads to some interesting stories we never expected.

On this episode, Kate, Eve, Ed, and Dennis are joined again by Caitlin, Karen, and Han to talk about The Special Combat Duty Unit Shinesman! But bear with us as we recall and recover our experience at this year's Anime Expo. For the sentai parody that is Shinesman, we talk a lot about the dub & translation differences (which we highly enjoyed), monster corporate sabotage, unfulfilled plot points, hero color choices, and the mysterious translator Tokyo Rose.

On this episode, Dennis, Ed, and Kate are joined by Caitlin, and new special guest Sanjay, and eventually his wife Rishon! We only had time to ask Sanjay some questions, but we promise to get Rishon next time she's on. Too busy working towards Anime Expo. Our main topic of discussion: the first Cardcaptor Sakura movie. Kate and Dennis are pretty out of their element when it comes to Cardcaptor Sakura knowledge, so it's great to have some people on to carry the load. We also talk at length about Pioneer's dub differences and directing choices compared to the Japanese version, along with silly things like Asian parental pressure, Yukito's fashion sense, Tomoya: creepy/not creepy, ghosting a ghost, and more.

So many people on again! Ed and Dennis are joined by returning guests Caitlin, Garret, Karen, and Han to talk about one of the anime classic Akira. How does it hold up to today's standards, and is it still a technical marvel after all the animation innovations that have occured since? We also go over the different license holders for North America, Tokyo 2020 Olympics, dub name pronunciation differences, the unfortunate treatment of Kaori, and Dennis' issue of accidentally turning off his microphone near the end.

One this episode, we've got just about everyone on the show. Dennis, Diana, Ed, Eve, Kate, & after a long hiatus, Sam! We're joined by Mike for the first time to talk about one of his and Diana's favorites, the 1993 film Ninja Scroll. After watching Wicked City for our first episode, we can make a better comparison due to the fact that both movies have the same creative mind behind both productions in Yoshiaki Kawajiri. We unfortunately also have to talk about the way the heroine is treated in the film, because it's a big plot point. We also go over Diana's anime skit homage to this movie, movie universe rules, no relation to Ninja Resurrection, and ninja magic.

On this episode, Han returns to join Kate, Ed, and Dennis as we go over the Masamune Shirow's 1998 Appleseed OVA. With many different versions of this anime, we tried to go back to the first one, released by Manga Entertainment. Paradise isn't all that it seems, as the city of Olympus deals with terrorist threats and political struggle. But is it all flash and no substance? We can't help but compare it to both Bubblegum Crisis and Ghost in the Shell.

On this wine and food filled podcast, Dennis, Ed, and Kate are joined by special guest and sommelier Han to talk about another Studio Ghibli classic, Porco Rosso. Kate and Dennis check out a couple of new shows on their own and also talk a little about Your Name. We also get to know a little about Han's anime history. Then it's all about the adventures of a pig pilot, the women in his life, the people with vendettas against him, and a hotshot rival. In an age where seaplane pilots, both good and bad, rule both sea and sky. And we actually had the DVD copy this time with some Disney included bonus features.

It's our first year anniversary! Dennis, Ed, Eve, and Kate go over some show fun facts before talking about this episode's topic: My Neighbor Totoro. We go over the characters, the plot (or lack thereof), theories surrounding the movie, and how raising kids in Totoro simply wouldn't work in modern times. Also, we go over our first anniversay contest! You can win an Escaflowne movie Program Guide from AX 2000 along with a slightly used copy of The Vision of Escaflowne OST 1.

On this episode, Diana returns to join Ed, Kate, and Dennis for our Escaflowne TV finale, with special guest Alcuin. We get to hear what Diana's been up to, how Ed's trip to Japan briefly was (he's still jetlagged), and Alcuin's anime history. We also debut a new corrections and special shout out segment. Then Diana and Alcuin recall their Escaflowne stories, and that's just the first hour of the show! There's lots of feels for the ending, some unexpected. Hope you have enjoyed our journey through our first 26 episode rewatch and review. It'll be a while before we jump into another 26+ episode series, but it will most likely continue in this type of format.

And as a special bonus after the anime discussion, we go over some of Diana's Escaflowne collection. Complete with pictures! Check out our Facebook page for it. And a brief tease of our first giveaway!

That voice in your ears isn't the Puppet Master, it's the Vintage Anime Club! In a change of plans, Ed, Kate, and Dennis go over the 1995 classic Ghost in the Shell before the 2017 live-action version is released to see if it still holds up. We go over some of the differences between the Special Edition DVD, 2.0, and 25th Anniversary edition (even though Dennis keeps referring it to "20th" instead of 25th). We go over some things that were influenced by this film along with what could have influence this film, same-face character design, scenes as the inspiration for the live action film (based on trailers alone), future tech prediction, and so much diving.

And of course, we go over some of the important characters' voice actors along with the bonus features of the Special Edition DVD.

Sorry for the laptop fan noise. We had to record directly into the laptop instead of using our normal digital recorder.

On this episode, Dennis, Kate, and Ed are joined once again by Karen as we go over the penultimate disc of Bandai's release for The Vision of Escaflowne, episodes 21-23. Hitomi further develops her Vibe powers. Will catgirls ever find love? Does Allen seem more overprotective and controlling to you? Who's that beastman with the long flowing hair (or is it a mane)? Do the brothers reconcile, or is there still too much distrust between them? And we're at (at least we think) the final Club Escaflowne segment.

Feb 28, 2017

You've had plenty of time to see it. We've watched it a bunch of times, too. Dennis, Kate, and Eve are joined by guests Caitlin, Karen, and Garrett to take a break from anime to extol the virtues of Dreamworks' Voltron: Legendary Defender seasons 1 and 2 (currently on Netflix). We also talk a little about the original Voltron/Beast King GoLion, other Voltron reboots, season 1 and 2 spoilers, and what we hope for season 3. You'll also learn what a "dilq" is. So suit up, grab your bayard, and lets go get those Galra. And I'll form... the head!

Kate, Ed, and Dennis continue on in the adventures in Gaea with special guest Karen. The romance subplots in Escaflowne come to the forefront now. We also talk about some upcoming anime home releases, toy festivals, Western historical figures in anime, animation budgeting issues, hair theory, tarot card poker face, and blood luck. And of course, Club Escaflowne part 5.

Feb 9, 2017

On this episode, hosts Dennis, Ed, Eve, and Kate are once again joined by special guest Karen to continue our Escaflowne TV talk, this time for disc 5. We finally get some answers to some burning questions, but that also leads to even more questions! We also talk about Anime Los Angeles, current anime con trends, Escaflowne/Avengers parallels, Guymelef hair, Allen's backstory, Escaflowne/Fullmetal Alchemist parallels, mirror worlds, the power of wishes, and the ultimate question: who does Hitomi really like? And the second non-Sekitomo CLUB ESCAFLOWNE, with all the denim clothing again.

Jan 26, 2017

On this episode, Kate, Ed, and Dennis are joined by Garrett to discuss Tekken: The Motion Picture...well, technically it's just a two-part OVA. But that's what it was released as via ADV. We go over our history with the Tekken fighting game franchise along with a thorough discussion of this anime's merits. Some discussion topics include a few current anime simulcasts, Kingdom Hearts series, One Piece: Film Gold, pre-internet rage-quitting, Tekken Volleyball & Bowling, Enter the Dragon, kangaroos & dinosaurs, axe biting, and the standard of fighting game plots.

We'll be at Anime Los Angeles this weekend. Come say hi!
