On this episode, Kate and Dennis are joined by returning guest Caitlin and new guest Karen as we go over the classic series The Vision of Escaflowne in honor of the 20th anniversary of the series finale and just before the re-release of the series on bluray by Funimation. We find out Karen's anime origins, go over old convention war stories, talk about some of our favorite Ocean Group dub actors, disappointing sequel series to good anime, and that's all before we even talk about this week's anime topic.
We do have some hard hitting questions though. What's up with Van's useless armor? Merle doesn't wear pants? Why does Dennis even remember Monster Rancher? Is Amano secretly a terrible person and athlete? Why does Hitomi think it's a good idea to run "through" Van...again? How does Fanelian steel work? What is the purpose of Allen's puffy shoulders? Did Zaibach invent the equivalent of Skype? Ancient Fanelian technology = ancient Aztec technology? Is Dilandau a giant prude?
Hope you enjoyed our talk about Disc 1 of The Vision of Escaflowne. Remember, don't watch the music videos on this disc. However, the next batch of episodes will have something better... Club Escaflowne.
Thanks to special guests Caitlin (We're Not Twins Cosplay) and Karen (Rya Cosplay).
