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.... Show More

On today's episode, special guest Byram returns to join Ed, Kate, and Dennis as we discuss 1973's Belladonna of Sadness. This film deals with a lot of heavy, mature themes, and is definitely not one for the kids to watch. So have a listen, and maybe don't make a deal with the devil. Thanks to special guest Byram, who you can follow on Instagram @radierase. Dennis: @ichnob | Ed: @ippennokuinashi | Kate: @TaikoChan Website | Email |...

On this episode, we go into our final batch of Slayers to discuss, with hosts Ed, Karen, Kate, and Dennis. After the briefest of E3 2019 talks, we still have to talk about anime after all. And since it's anime, how will Eris be defeated? How will Rezo be defeated (again)? And more importantly, how are our OTPs doing in this series? Find out this and more as we go over the final four episodes of Slayers season 1. Dennis: @ichnob | ...

On this episode, we go over what just might be the funniest batch of episodes in the first season of The Slayers. There's not one, but two marriage proposals to two different characters, potential inspiration for one of our favorite Avatar: The Last Airbender episodes, Team Rocket style antics of Zangulus and Vrumugun (or Z & V as we like to shorthand), and the problems with wanted posters. Featuring Ed, Karen, Dennis, and Kate. D...

On this post-Endgame episode, the crew goes over the next batch of episodes of Slayers season 1. Shabranigdo is defeated? And who are these new crazy characters? There's talk of out of character Lina, strong sense of Justice, Will Smith, and ghostbusting. Got a lot of thoughts about these episodes, but we promise, no tangent spoilers for Avengers and Game of Thrones. Dennis: @ichnob | Karen: @RyaCosplay | Kate: @TaikoChan Website ...

On this episode, the club gathers to discuss the 1993 OVA, Battle Angel. Or more commonly known by the Western manga release as Battle Angel Alita. But, it's originally known as Gunnm in Japan. All of this of course, because we wanted to discuss this before the theatrical release of Alita: Battle Angel, the live action adaptation. Confused yet? Good. We go over just a bit of the manga/anime name differences, other similarities to ...

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.

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 d...
