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.

Jun 23, 2022

On this episode, join Dennis, Karen, and Ed as they discuss episodes 14 through 17 of Princess Tutu. It's the second half of the series, and here comes the format change. Ed experiements watching half an episode a day to have a somewhat similar experience to when it originally aired in Japan. We're introduced to our big bad of the series, The Raven. Mytho and Kraehe get some fabulous, feathery costumes along with some new admirers. Is Pike switching her love interest? And who is this curious little girl with a funky beat? Listen in on the fourth episode of our Princess Tutu miniseries, zura.

On this episode, Dennis, Kate, and Karen are joined by returning special guest Kristen to discuss episodes 10 through 13 of Princess Tutu, the end of the first half. There's lots of buildups and payoffs with this batch of episodes. Various princess identities revealed, more of Fakir's backstory, the truth about Edel, Fakir and Duck getting along, love being found, and even some Smash Bros. observations.

Many thanks to our special guest Kristen (@kori.starfire)

On this episode, join Ed, Kate, Karen, and special guests Sanjay and Rishon as they continue with the Princess Tutu rewatch, covering episodes 5 through 9. Things are taking more interesting turns as Mytho regains more pieces of his heart. We talk about a different version of a Fire Festival, what are the differences between a crow and a raven, how deep do Fakir's scars go, and...well let's just put a pin in that one for the time being. Now then, lights, music, podcast!

On this episode, join Karen, Kate, Ed, and Dennis as they discuss the 2002 series Princess Tutu. We somehow avoid a major recording disaster with Dennis forgetting the actual microphones, so this episode's audio sounds different than what you're used to hearing. But we still have much to discuss, such as all of the dance battles, what we think happens in Once Upon a Time, why do people like Mytho, more animals than we realize, and is Neko-sensei worse than Kimura-sensei? Maybe you can help us decide. Un, Deux, Trois! It's time to discuss the first four episodes of Princess Tutu.

On this episode, join Dennis, Ed, Garrett, and Kate as they discuss the 1986 Studio Ghibli film Castle in the Sky. We couldn't go over the 1989 dub as the Disney version is the one that's easily streamable. Nonetheless, we still have a lot to talk about, such as never trusting people who always wear sunglasses, sky pirate etiquette, is it steampunk, the Dragon's Lair, Terminator robots, and just where did that apple core go.

On this episode, join Dennis, Diana, Ed, Karen, and Kate as they discuss 1995's Ruin Explorers - Fam & Ihirie OVA series. And before that, we also get into some of our highlights of the Winter 2022 anime season plus looking forward to Spy x Fa--I mean the Spring 2022 anime season. Other talking points include Diana's origin with Ruin Explorers, comparisons to Slayers and Lodoss Wars, which anime characters does Ihrie remind Dennis of, what is Fam's D&D class, Wacky Races, and is Lyle like Steve Urkel? Drop that Magical Beat, and don't set off any traps. It's time for Ruin Explorers!

On this episode, we have Dennis, Ed, Kate, and Karen to discuss the 1991 OVA series Sukeban Deka, aka Delinquent Detective. Only two episodes, expired North American license, and out of print but still cheap to find second hand? Sounds like the perfect series for us to cover. What can one student as an undercover detective armed with only a yo-yo do? Quite a lot actually. Listen is as we discuss school bus safety, tracing in the art world, sibling rivalry, dramatic still frame shots, and Junko's hard life. So badge up, because mom needs saving. Join us as we discuss Sukeban Deka.

On this episode, it took almost two years but we're finally covering the infamous Garzey's Wing, the 1996 OVA series by Yoshiyuki Tomino of Gundam fame. Join Dennis, Ed, Kate, and Karen as they go through both the Japanese and English versions of the series, try to make sense of the plot, butcher the pronunciation of a bunch of character names and places, and maybe have a too much wine for once. Plus, with the the help of some blogs, we also get some insight into the source material novels for Garzey's Wing, too. So summon the spirit of a Japanese man, get whisked away to another world by Yamato Takeru no Mikoto, and don't forget your swimsuit for the high school reunion pool party. We're heading to Byston Well.

On this episode, join Ed, Kate, and Dennis as they discuss the 1997 prequel OVA series Sakura Wars. Based on the long running Sega game series of the same name, but taking place before the events of the first game, we want to know how well this OVA holds up especially for those who are unfamiliar with the game series. Ed also gives us a deep dive into the series itself along with some historical importance it has on Japanese audiences. We also talk about steampunk mechs, the dual life of a stage performer and soldier, if granny deems you worthy, and comparisons to another Taisho era based anime that involves fighting demons. So put on those fancy clothes, because we're heading to the theater. Enjoy!

It's a jam packed full host podcast with Diana, Sam, Karen, Kate, Garrett, Ed, and Dennis! There is quite a bit that happens in the second half of the Magic User's Club OVA. There's a combo of a beach PLUS hot springs episode, yet it's actually not as ecchi as we'd think! Some insight on the pasts of both Takakura and Miyama. There's also some school hijinks like a festival prep, confession culture, and sneaking in after school is closed. Join us as we discuss the real question that's been on our minds since the start: will Jeff do something? Listen in and find out.

On this episode, we've got a full clubhouse with Diana, Sam, Ed, Karen, and Dennis hosting our first podcast of 2022 with Magic Users Club OVA, episodes 1-3. High school magic users versus alien robots with a little bit of ecchi thrown in? What's not to love? Takakura and Aburatsubo have to show three new members the ropes: second years Sae and Nanaka plus first year Akane. And on top of all of this, there's the antagonistic manga club plus two very in your face investigative journalists causing trouble and distractions. So don your wizard or witch hat, prep your magic wand and magic cards, and pad that broom you're riding on because the wooden handle is very uncomfortable. The Magic User's Club is off to see the Bell!
