Short but knowledgable

I stumbled across this podcast whilst looking at some other anime podcasts. Each episode isn't very long but the hosts, who have good chemistry and both seem to be genuine and knowledgable fans, do cover the anime they review in some depth with decent insight. They cover a lot of anime that I've never heard of but it has been interesting to discover them through the podcast.

Highly Recommended

RAP is my absolute favourite anime podcast. It has a no nonsense straight to the point review format that doesn't spend much time on anything other than the subject of the episode. Some podcasts spend 20 mins to an hour before they even get to the review at hand, thankfully RAP doesn't waste the audience's time and gets straight on with it. The hosts Ian and Lewis obviously have a great general knowledge of anime history but they don't come off as know it alls and are never obnoxious or opinonated like some other podcast hosts out there. I have a pretty decent knowledge of anime across all genres from the 1950's to modern day but they've managed to unearth a few old OVAs that I hadn't heard of to check out.
Whether you're a seasoned anime fan who's watched a lot of older stuff or you're looking for some recommendations for earlier titles you're sure to get something out of this show. It's also refreshing to listen to a British anime podcast in a sea of American ones (not that I have anything against those but it's nice to change things up a bit). Give RAP a try and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
