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 13, 2024

It's our final Slayers Try podcast! Hosts Dennis, Ed, Garrett, & Karen are joined by returning guests Patrick & Jennifer to discuss the last four episodes of Slayers Try. How will our heroes defeat Dark Star? What happens to the Golden Dragons? Does Gourry get his sword back? Most importantly, what happens to Jillas?! We also have fun discussing the mid credits epilogue for this season. So grab your Dark Star weapon, and get ready for the end of this adventure!

Our fox-man with a funny accent does what few people have done before: outsmart Lina and the entire gang.

On this episode, join our small host trio of Dennis, Kate, & Karen for part 2 of our Slayers Try miniseries, covering episodes 57 through 61. This batch of episodes has less pinball antics, but more Filia related content. Other talking points include a Zelgadis fan on the animation staff, golden dragon workout gear, what's another word for old, trying to remember Almayce's weapon, and more Xellos being Xellos. So keep your hands and arms inside the podcast vehicle at all times until the episode comes to a complete stop, and whatever you do, don't eat the Dradora Surprise.

On this episode, join Dennis, Ed, Karen, & Kate as we return to the world of Slayers with 1997's Slayers Try.

Talking points include who's that Pokemon, going from Star Wars to Dune, something about a Dark Star, sneaking around, and a fox man with a cockney accent.

On this episode, we have Dennis, Garrett, Ed, Kate, and Karen to discuss Fatal Fury 2: The New Battle. It's the second Fatal Fury TV special to air, and the introduction of Mai Shiranui. Talking points include "I'm Terry Bogard, no more," Andy's character upgrade, villain pipe organ tropes, perverted old man tropes, and Mai's costume changes.

It's our first episode back from vacation. Join hosts Ed, Garrett, Kate, and Dennis as they discuss the 1992 TV special Fatal Fury: Legend of the Hungry Wolf.

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.
