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.
