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.

Aug 27, 2020

On this episode of the Vintage Anime Club Podcast, we go back to Tomobiki where the local high school is ramping up the hustle and bustle before the school festival tomorrow. Except that it keeps being tomorrow. So join Diana, Ed, Kate, Sam, Dennis, and returning special guest Eron as we discuss Urusei Yatura Movie 2: Beautiful Dreamer, which was released in 1984. The Urashima Taro references are very much at the forefront of this one, along with a few other things that we deep dive into, with some of Oshii's early experimentation with film, if this needed to actually be with Urusei Yatsura characters, inspiration for other films, and the contrast in reception between this versus the first film Only You.

Thanks to Eron (@eronrauch) for being a guest, and check out his digital photobook about locations in Yakuza 0 called "Such is the Power of The Empty Lot," available from Heterotopias.

On this episode we have Diana, Ed, Karen, Kate, Dennis, and the return of Sam to discuss the first Urusei Yatsura movie Only You, released in 1983. Based on Rumiko Takahashi's first serialized manga, and the feature length directorial debut for Mamoru Oshii, we see glimpses of story, design, and direction in their more globally known works that we're more familiar with. We can't help but bring up some Ranma comparisons, why Ataru is surrounded by all the ladies, weird alien customs, one of anime's earliest himbos, Wedding Crashers, and puns for days. CW: We also discuss briefly about the scandal with the writer for Shonen Jump's Act-Age manga in our news section.

Urusei Yatsura: Only You is out of print on DVD and not available on Blu-ray yet, but Discotek does have plans to re-release it soon.

Special thanks to Alec of Anime Los Angeles for lending us his DVD copy of the Animeigo release.
