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.

Feb 8, 2024

On this episode, join hosts Ed, Karen, Kate, Garrett, & Dennis as we discuss the 1998 OVA series Kite, also known as A Kite in Japan. Is this hentai or not? There's a lot of tough subject matter to discuss in this one, so this episode is not for everyone. But between the sex and the violence, is there enough in this revenge story that has garnered praise from some noteworthy Hollywood film makers along with inspiring a No Doubt music video? Let's find out more about our young assassins.

Join Dennis, Ed, Karen, and Kate on a road trip across most of America with the cult classic 1990 film A Wind Named Amnesia. Wataru bears witness to what humanity has become when no one remembers how to speak or act in a society, and picks up Sophia along his journey. There's psychic battles, Cerebro, killer mechs, references to the big coastal American cities, and one man's appreciation for jeeps.

It's a holiday themed episode, as Ed, Dennis, Garrett, Karen, & Kate discuss 2003's Tokyo Godfathers by Satoshi Kon. Less away in a manger and more thrown in the dumpster, listen along as we discuss points like how dangerous driving is on snowy streets, found family versus real family, so many Kiyokos, not the mama, and miracles on the streets of Tokyo. It's no silent night with how much trouble our trio gets into throughout the film, so hope you enjoy, and have a happy holidays!

On this episode, join Diana, Kate, Ed, Dennis, and returning guest Samantha for part 2 of Master of Mosquiton. More scientists, more travelling adventure, more backstory, and more of that unexpected 90s OVA ecchi--Inaho not only has to deal with trying to get the O-parts, but she also has to deal with Mosquiton's ex in Camille. Will she be able to obtain eternal life, or will she lose Mosquiton to either Camille or St. Germaine? Activate those pyramid powers, because it's time to go to the moon.

We're continuing the spooky in November with the first of our two -part miniseries covering the 1996 OVA Master of Mosquiton, featuring hosts Diana, Ed, Kate, Dennis, and returning guest Samantha. Why is this vampire and his minions being bossed around by this young woman? How many O-parts are there in this world? What are Honou and Yuki's real forms? Who knew Mosquiton was actually a ladies man? And finally, won't someone back Dr. Hubble his photograph? What looks like an ecchi-comedy from the box art is actually a globe-trotting adventure for a macguffin (but yes, there's comedy and some ecchiness). So strap in and earn that money for travel expenses, because we're going O-Parts hunting with Mosquiton and Inoha.

On this spoopy episode, join Ed, Kate, and Dennis as we discuss the 1988 OVA series Vampire Princess Miyu. There's different vampire rules here than we're used to seeing. Though none of the standard weaknesses apply, Miyu's unaging is typical but granting eternal life is new. There's exorcisms, creepy dolls, not-Alphonse Elric, double sad backstory, and Himiko doesn't even need a warrant for any info.

On this episode, join Dennis, Kate, Ed, and the return of Caitlin as we discuss the 1987 OVA Metal Skin Panic Madox-01. It's not like prototype mech suits just fall out from the back of a truck, but in this anime, they do! There's a severe case of toxic masculinity for our antagonist 1st Lt Killgore, Ellie's amazing pilot skills for a woman we guess (?), Koji's priorities, Shiori's ten lines of dialogue, and (mostly) reading the manual. Join us on a stolen mecha joyride for Madox-01.

On this episode, join hosts Dennis, Ed, Kate, & Garrett with speccial guests Patrick and Jennifer as we discuss the opening animations for Daicon III and Daicon IV. Before they founded Gainax, these two amateur animation shorts are still inspiring folks in the industry today after more than 40 years. Fandom crossovers and cameos, galore. It's the first anime bunny girl committed to film. And if you haven't heard ELO's "Twilight" yet, do yourself a favor and stream it. Still a banger.

On this episode, join Ed, Karen, Sam, Diana, Kate, & Dennis as they finish discussing the second half of the 1988 OVA series Aim for the Top! Gunbuster.

On this episode, join Diana, Sam, Kate, Dennis, Karen, & Ed as they discusss the 1988 OVA series Aim for the Top! Gunbuster, one of Gainax's earliest releases. How many parodies is too many parodies? Do the mechs have to take a fitness test too? And are those really regulation space suits? You'll have to mostly ignore some of the pseudo-science included in the show, even if the post episode science lessons are fun, but we'll get through this series thanks to hard work and guts!

Produced by two different anime studios, this was also Central Park Media's first ever anime release on VHS! Having covered New Dominion Tank Police back in our early days, it's time to actually go over the origins of Leona, Bonaparte, and Buaku, plus all the wacky hijinks this late 80's anime gets into.

On this episode, join Kate and Dennis with first time special guest Rhys as we discuss 1990's Cyber City Oedo 808. Lots of action, violence, and profanity (for the dub at least) in this one, but for a Yoshiaki Kawajiri project, there's actually no nudity. But we discuss things like DC's Suicide Squad, Kawajiri's original intentions, stabbed through the gut, vehicle safety inspection, RGB all-in-one coolers, Goggle/Gogul, single-legged pants fashion statement, anime Babu Frik, vampire disease, cybertooth tigers

It's our Gundam Wing TV series finale podcast, featuring Ed, Garrett, Kate, Karen, Dennis, and returning guests Daniel and Kristen, who were also the guests on our first Gundam Wing episode. But before we can get to the final Epyon vs Wing Zero fight, there's all these other politics we have to deal with. How many more times must Relena try to talk to Milliardo, when was the Tallgeese II built, a close enough colony drop, more space fencing with Dorothy's VR headset, and some "oh yeah, those guys" return reactions.

As things come to a head in space, all the players are now set in motion. Memories return, sides are switched left and right, Gundams are switched left and right, battleships are destroyed, other battleships are fully operational, but most importantly, all the non-Heero Gundam pilots get a nice spotlight in this batch of episodes. There's even a cameo by fan favorite Gundam girl Sayla Mass! Help us complete this mission for our Gundam Wing rewatch. There's only one more left, and we promise not to self destruct.

On this episode, join Dennis, Ed, Kate, Karen, and returning special guests Patrick and Jennifer for our eigth Gundam Wing recap episode. And we have so many talking points. Things like how long the Sanc Kingdom was actually running, how to pronounce "Quinze," what motor skills are retained with amnesia, Gundam Pokemon trading, Noin's cowboy outfit, going after Relena for real this time, and twirling your eyebrows with your fingers. There's a lot of plot in this batch, and we try to make sense of it all. It's time to feel the rhythm emotion.

Zechs once again dons the mask, Pagan shows how tough he is, it's harder to craft peace than Relena thinks, the good guys wear white, fencing revisited, high on the Zero System, and Peacemillion is a silly name.

On this episode, join the OG trio of Ed, Dennis, and Kate as we discuss the next batch of Gundam Wing episodes, 26-30. That's right folks, we're back in the After Colony era. The downside for this batch (or upside in the shorter podcast length) is that there are two recap episode covering the first half of the series. We discuss things like Heero's newly awakened Newtype powers, how often the Wing Gundam is sunk into the ocean, Sally & Noin's chemistry, how fast can a kingdom be rebuilt, and the introduction to Dorothy Catalonia.

On this episode, join Dennis, Ed, Garrett, Kate, Karen, & Diana as they discuss the 1997 film Princess Mononoke, which was released in the US in 1999. One of Ghibli's iconic films, there was a lot to talk about this time. So much to discuss that we actually had to edit a bunch out because it would just be too long. Let's see if you can notice some of the cuts! Besides the many themes of the film and the moral grayness of a majority of the characters, we also discuss some of the amazing action sequences, is leprosy still around, cannot help comparing the dub vs subs on this one, Gaiman praise, and discussing the "you're beautiful" line. So buckle in for a long one that could have been even longer.

On this episode, join hosts Ed, Garrett, Karen, Kate, and Dennis as we discuss the 1970 film Cleopatra, by Mushi Productions. Part of the adult targeted "Animerama" trilogy, this is not your Tezuka's Astro Boy or Kimba the White Lion. This film plays it loose with history while also showcasing fine art from various cultures, at times both childish and adult, and filled with lots of heartache and loss. Come listen and see how we try to make sense of this film.

On this episode, join Karen, Kate, Ed, Dennis, and returning guest Julia as we reach the end of the first half of Gundam Wing. Covering episodes 21-25, we finally get the reveal of the Wing Zero Gundam (though it's not outright called that by any of the cast), is Quatre still a precious bean, Heero saying the line, hardly knowing the Mercurius or Vayeate, Nichol still simping, and is Lady Une dead?

It's time to take the fight to space as the Gundam pilots leave earth for now. There's Lady Une's new makeover, colony simps, more Gundams getting destroyed or not destroyed, self-piloting mechs, and a scientist reunion.
