Podcast #2

Sunday 22nd April 2012


Manga UK PodcastThe 2nd episode of the Manga UK podcast is now ready for download, hosted by Anime Chronicle’s Jeremy Graves, and featuring Manga Entertainment’s Jerome Mazandarani and Schoolgirl Milky Crisis author Jonathan Clements. From Dragon Ball Z to Blue Exorcist, Cabin in the Woods to Battleship, your questions are answered in Ask Manga UK and more!

Episode two, recorded 20th April 2012.

You may occasionally hear the sound of a London bus braking, or girls outside the studio screaming because it started raining, even the sound of fire engines going by, but it won't affect your enjoyment of the programme.

00:00 – 00:06:46. An impromptu discussion (Jeremy sneaked the mic on when the others weren't looking) on observations of London, how many times Hayao Miyazaki thinks you should visit the cinema every year, and selling titles in high street retailers.

00:06:46 – 00:43:03. Introductions, talk on new and forthcoming releases, discussion on Dragon Ball Z and Blue Exorcist being released on DVD in the UK (including detailed information on the decision behind the latter being a subtitle only release). Also (spoiler-free) talk on the movie Cabin in the Woods and an interesting fact on the market for Blu-Ray worldwide.

00:43:03 - 1:07:08. The community portion of the program known as “Ask Manga UK” where we take a variety questions submitted via Facebook & Twitter and answer them for you. This time topics include the possibility of more subtitle only titles, re-releases of titles previously owned by other licensors, the Anime Boom and more.
Remember that all questions submitted for “Ask Manga UK” are kept and could be used at a later date! Enjoy the show.

FEATURED RELEASE

RECENT FEATURED POSTS

Bleach Music: Miwa

Tom Smith rings the ch-ch-changes…
Bleach series 13 continues the clash between Soul Society’s Shinigami and Sousuke Aizen’s Arrancar army. It also brings with it a new talent in Japanese pop-rock: miwa. This fresh-faced female, armed with a guitar and an arsenal of upbeat pop-rock songs, provides the series’ twelfth opening theme, ‘chAngE’.
Following its remarkable success in UK cinemas last Autumn, Manga Entertainment is thrilled to announce that the home video release of Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' debuted last week in the Official UK Home Video Chart Top 20.

Shigeru Mizuki and Yokai

Remembering a manga giant
Shigeru Mizuki is largely responsible for the modern-day yokai phenomenon, thanks to his enduringly influential Spooky Kitaro manga series and other similarly ghoulish serials like Sanpei the Kappa and Akuma-kun.

Naruto Music: Asian Kung Fu Generation

Tom Smith on the Britmaniacs behind the Naruto theme.
They’re so loud and proud that they insist on writing it all in caps: ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION – possibly one of Japan’s most important alternative rock acts. The group’s tenth single ‘After Dark’ makes for the energetic, guitar-heavy opening theme to the latest volume of Bleach, released in the UK this month, and the group’s sound might at first seem reminiscent of America’s indie scene dashed with elements of punk, it actually has a lot more in common with The Who, their generation, and the sea of British-based guitar heroes that have appeared since.

Karneval

Andrew Osmond rolls up for the fun of the anime fair…
Roll up for Karneval! See cosplay cats, robot sheep, hi-tech airships, battling super-beings, smiling snowmen, mutating monsters and cute boys. Some very cute boys, in fact. Let’s face it, studio Manglobe – which has a CV that zigzags between the gruesome Deadman Wonderland and the cuddliness of The World God Only Knows – has opted to make the pretty youths into the main selling-point.

Time Travel in Anime

Paul Browne rewinds from Naruto Shippuden: The Lost Tower into the past
In the latest Naruto film The Lost Tower, the title character and his comrades embark on a mission to capture Mukade – a missing ninja who has the ability to travel through time. Mukade’s plan is to travel into the past and take control of the Five Great Shinobi Countries. During the battle with Mukade, Naruto and Yamato find themselves hurled back twenty years in time. Will Naruto and his friends be able to return to his own time? And will their actions in the past save the future?

Patema Inverted

Jonathan Clements on the movie that turns anime on its head
Boy-meets-girl has never been so strange as in this feature, in which the leads must literally cling to each other or fall away to an uncertain fate. Patema Inverted winningly plays with matters of spatial awareness, perspective and weight, regularly flipping its angles until the viewer literally can no longer remember which way is truly up.

Arthur Rankin Jr (1924-2014)

An obituary of anime's secret angel
Arthur Rankin Jr, who died last Thursday, was not often thought of in connection with Japanese animation, though he played a major part in its history. In America, he’s best known as the co-founder of Rankin/Bass Productions. A stateside brand, the Rankin/Bass name is linked with handmade family cartoons as fondly as Oliver Postgate or Aardman are in Britain. But while the studio’s cartoons – especially the stop-motion Christmas classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) – are evergreens, few people know their animation was Japanese.

Psycho-Pass

Who watches the watchmen watching your thoughts...?
Psycho-Pass; the first half of the name should warn you. This is a blend of SF and horror by the studio which brought you Ghost in the Shell, now splicing cyberpunk, police procedural and splatter. There will be blood, and dismembered body parts, and if no-one’s actually eaten a human liver on the show yet, there’s still Psycho-Pass 2 to come.
Welcome back, in part three we'll taking a trip to Shonen Jump's awesome J-World and hanging out in the greatest place for anime fans - Akihabara!
