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.

Nov 16, 2018

On this episode, Karen, Ed, Dennis, and Kate help you relive some of your supposed repressed childhood memories as we go over 1981's The Fantastic Adventures of Unico. How could an adorable baby unicorn cause so much trauma? Osamu Tezuka, that's how. We'll go over comparisons to Fantasmic, can horse hooves really do that, tsundere demons, and staying away from strangers' drinks.

On this episode, we have the OG trio of hosts Ed, Kate, and Dennis as we discuss the not so spooky but definitely full of monsters anime Night Warriors: Darkstalker's Revenge, which was known as Vampire Hunter: The Animated Series in Japan. Yup, it's another fighting game anime, this time based on the cult classic Capcom fighting game series Darkstalkers (Vampire in Japan). We discuss some fighting game moves and animation scenes, how bats is everything in this show, and Capcom's love for JJBA, some questionable fashion choices, and the return of bonus feature discussion. All aboard the Felicia hype train! No really, she has a train in this anime.

On this episode, Karen, Ed, Kate, and Dennis have another Discord recording session to discuss Armitage III, the 1995 OVA series, not necessarily the movie. We've noticed quite a few sources of inspiration and other comparisons for this anime title, along with also inspiring further media as well (spoilers for a 2017 sci-fi movie). While we make these comparisons, does Armitage do enough to honor them without being a copycat? Or does it somehow fall short. Grab a glass of wine and listen in.

On this episode, Kate and Dennis return both sick and jetlagged to join Ed and Karen as they discuss the third and final Dirty Pair Feature: Project Eden, aka Dirty Pair: The Movie. With all the destruction they cause, will the Lovely Angels ever find romance? And is a bottle of wine worth all that trouble? Listen in as we discuss these things and more.

On this episode, it's a small club meeting with only Ed, Garrett, and Karen. Will this podcast stay the course, or will it go off the rails? You'll have to listen in to find out as we discuss the second of three Dirty Pair features.

On this episode, we have just a small meeting with Dennis, Ed, and Kate as we convene over Discord. After butchering the title for The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl, the club tackles the main discussion for the 1985 OVA of Dirty Pair: Affair on Nolandia. As Dennis and Kate's first introduction to Dirty Pair, we see how it stacks up for those looking to jump into the classic series. There's references to other sci-fi movies and anime titles abound, as we cover the first of the three features in this release.

On this episode, Karen, Han, Ed, and Dennis meet up to discuss the cult favorite Dragon Half. We meet some crazy characters like Mink, Dick Saucer, Damarammu, Vina, the King, and many more. Violence, comedy, singing, action, romance, magic, and some fan service. It's got it all, but is it any good? You'll have to listen to find out, or watch for yourself on Crunchyroll.

On this episode, Han, Garrett, Kate, Ed, and Dennis are joined by Jill, who definitely lends a helping hand with our lack of The Pillows knowledge as we discuss FLCL. After a long intro, we toss out the episode by episode discussion to go more free-form with the podcast talk. We talk things like Vespa spare parts, head trauma, trying to be mature for your age, kid bickering, Haruko's motivations, a Gainax deep dive, and trying to make as much sense of the Atomsk plot as possible. Put on those nori eyebrows, and crank up that music, because we're going on the FLCL ride.

On this episode, special guest and non-anime fan Byram joins the crew of Dennis, Ed, and Han to talk about one of Byram's few favorite anime titles, Spirited Away. As life takes Byram further away from Los Angeles, we decide to break our norms and go with something after 2001 as a special exception. We discuss Chihiro's journey of self discovery, parental folly, lots of fantastical creatures, and of course, No Face, one of Byram's most favorite fictional characters. Don't ever forget yourself.

On this episode, we somehow survived the inferno known as Anime Expo. Dennis, Ed, Kate and Karen come back from being melted to discuss Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie. After a blitz of news from and during AX, we go into some Street Fighter game memories, or for some, the lack thereof. We discuss how often they actually fight in the streets, Cammy's brief appearance or Cammy-O if you will, Seattle-raised Kate not being able to get over "North Seattle" being a thing, Ken's shorts, fighter bromances, what's in Ryu's bag, the famed Chun-Li vs Vega fight, the lack of Psycho Crusher, and we settle the debate of wizardry in Street Fighter.

A small group today as Dennis, Ed, Kate, and Han gather together to discuss Vampire Hunter D after a bit of a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure discussion. Not Bloodlust, the original 1985 Vampire Hunter D. We talk about the trio of D characters in D, Doris, and Dan along with Doris' most impractical battle attire, some Fist of the North Star comparisons, Greco being like Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, Ray's mysterious power that only gets used once, D's sassy left hand, Dan becoming a man, Urban Vision's very dark and hard to see film version, and Cartoon Netork's edited version called "Night of the Vampire Robots."

On this episode, Bryan Newton returns to join in on the finale for the first season of The Big O, with Karen, Garrett, Ed, Kate, and Dennis. In the final four episodes, we take an extended look at the most noir-like episode of the series so far, how missing memories and amnesia might actually affect day to day life, mobile desks, Pagan holidays, the best mech fight of the series, and that cliffhanger ending! Will we ever get to season 2? Maybe someday.

Thanks to special guest Bryan Newton for joining in. Listen to his podcast Animation Success Stories, and follow him on Twitter @DarkKingZoro.

On this holiday weekend recorded episode, we sit back and relax with Eve, Ed, Dennis, Garrett, Karen, and returning from her work inflicted exile is Caitlin, as we cover episodes 5-9 for The Big O season 1. After a brief tangent regarding anime related shirts, we get straight into the important topics such as: more of Roger being a louse, explorations of Dorothy's "memories," music theory, cats wearing suits, FMA references, and why Roger has a Terry McGuiness cosplay in his closet. Oh, and surprise! Kate also makes a guest appearance.

On this episode, we're recording over Discord for the first time, so bear with us in a new, but not too often recurring format. We've got Dennis, Ed, Han, Garrett, and Karen here to talk about the Toonami classic, The Big O. We go over the international fan influence, is Roger actually a ladies man or does he just think he is, the fluctuating weight of Dorothy, what it's like living in Paradigm City, opening troubles, and so much more. Is Roger even a good negotiator, or is he just the city's ONLY negotiator, thus the best by default? Find out, and let us know what you think.

In our second Ghibli movie for our second anniversary month, we've got a new visitor! Mike joins the show (a different Mike than previously) along with Diana, Dennis, Ed, and Han to discuss Isao Takahata's film Pom Poko. For this review, we go over some bits regarding Japanese folklore, especially regarding one of the tanuki's prominent body features. We also discuss some of the more serious messages within the film as it also contrasts the more light-hearted tone. In memory of Isao Takahata, thank you for all emotions you have given us through your works.

Thanks to special guest Mike, who you can find @HolySpacePug on Twitter.

On this episode, most of the hosts are afflicted with mysterious anime disease preventing them from rewatching this movie, but fear not! Dennis and Eve are joined Garrett, Karen, and new special guest Alicia! It's our second anniversary, and we're honoring the late, great Isao Takahata as we go over his celebrated classic Grave of the Fireflies. We get Alicia's anime origins, poor family decisions, youthful innocence, and who thought this was a good movie to pair with My Neighbor Totoro during its theatrical run?

On this episode, Karen returns to chat with Eve, Ed, Kate, and Dennis to discuss the final episodes of Naza. Soon, we will be reincarnated to watch a different set of anime, but for now we'll end the tale of Incan anime reincarnation. There's the last awakened spirit, the final end all plan to defeat Tate, a wavering heart or two, Jigumi/Shiogami's true motivations, and what happens to the Tate fan club.

On this episode, we return to Tawantinsuyu as Dennis, Ed, Eve, Kate, and Garrett discuss episode 5 through 8 of Nazca. There's coffee talk with Dan, Kyoji's growth as a warrior, that other girl talks and her name is Tatsuko, and Yuka's regression. Some mysteries are solved, but more questions abound. So say a prayer to Iriyatesse, and hopefully you can break the reincarnation cycle.

On this episode, Diana and Sam return with hosts Ed, Kate, Dennis, and our regulars Garrett and Han to discuss the 1994 OVA series Macross Plus. Full disclosure, Diana loves this series and makes it known. We don't go into as much of an episode by episode breakdown as in previous podcasts, but there's still lots of discuss. There's lots of talk about the music, the mechs, and the military tech. There's also virtual idols, toxic masculinity, top songs list, and more!

We discuss common Toei Animation cost cutting measures, Tetsuro's always moving eyes, Matsumoto's female character designs, soundtrack fitting for the era, and the pacing issues that happen when trying to condense dozens of episodes into a greatest hits clip show for a movie.

On this episode we have Ed, Kate, Dennis, and Garrett all watching New Dominion Tank Police for the first time. While most of us have seen the original 1988 Dominion Tank Police, the 1993 sequel never came across our screens until this recording. We talk some logistics of having a Tank Police squad, Leona and Al's relationship, some character differences between the two series, and the barebones release of New Dominino Tank Police by Maiden Japan.

Happy 2018 everyone! We have Dennis, Ed, Kate, Garrett, and Karen to talk Please Save My Earth, a 1993 six episode OVA based on a long running shoujo manga series. It's got everything! Love, romance, reincarnation, yazuka, psychic battles, and aliens! But is it any good? Better hope that your terrible neighbor demon child doesn't force you to become engaged, because we've got a doozy of a show to talk about.
