Comic Con chats and ninja nonsense, in the Manga UK podcast

Manga UK PodcastThe Manga UK podcast is back for its fifth outing, in which Jerome Mazandarani demonstrates his mastery of languages by speaking Australian, Jonathan Clements promises not to talk about ninja but then does anyway, Andrew Hewson offers a new and original interpretation of the voice of Bane, and Jeremy Graves silently weeps.

00:00:00-00:40:00 : Discussion on San Diego Comic Con, Japan Expo, MCM Manchester Expo, new acquisitions by Manga UK and more. Jonathan reveals that his Animefest speech is now available to view online.

00:40:00-00:55:45  : The upcoming Ninja Scroll Steelbook release, and history (or lack of it) of ninja. An unexpected digression into English chroniclers of the Dark Ages, while discussing men in black chucking knives at each other.

00:55:45-1:04:15  : Discussion on the Fullmetal Achemist Sacred Star Of Milos premiere in London. Hotel woes, and grateful acknowledgement of the little clicky box on a Radisson booking page, which allows to avoid the embarrassment of making your guests pay for their own room.

1:04:15- 1:50:04 [end] : Ask Manga UK featuring questions on licensing, how Dragonball Z Season One has done since its release, life changing anime, old 90’s videodubs, Madoka Magica and much more.

Gatchaman Crowds

Warning against surprise attacks by alien galaxies from beyond space
The colourfully mad Gatchaman Crowds is one of those anime which isn’t happy unless it’s doing umpteen things at once, all seeming completely different.

If this show dropped all the extreme fan-service it would still be an exciting action-horror adventure, not far removed from an extended arc of Supernatural or the like.
