Anime World Order Show # 225 - 2x2 Ninja Consultant Nonsense Trivia, 2023 Edition
After vanishing--NINJA vanishing--for nearly a decade to start raising a family in NYC, we're reunited with Erin and Noah of the long-defunct Ninja Consultant podcast (and Livejournal!) for the annual pre-Thanksgiving tradition that is THE TRIVIA EPISODE~!. Lots of new gimmicks this time around, be it game types or the fact that our Patreon supporters at the $5 and up tiers were able to watch this carnage unfold live on video courtesy of our Discord! Just take a gander at what you missed out on. Visit www.animeworldorder.com for full show notes and supplemental links.
Anime World Order Show # 224 - The Crime Is Drinking Budweiser After Showering, The Sentence is Death
Mike Toole returns to the show for this MONSTER CHILLER HORROR edition of AWO released on Halloween, in which Gerald reviews the polar opposite of The Poe Clan: Go Nagai's Shuten Doji! Now that we've done this, the YouTubers can follow in our wake and make this one a meme darling. Visit www.animeworldorder.com for full show notes and supplemental links.
Anime World Order Show # 223 – Some Might Consider This Moto Hagiography
This is perhaps our most tragic episode ever, for not only have we lost our sole sponsor Right Stuf due to Crunchyroll shutting it down, but Clarissa is reviewing The Poe Clan, one of the great shojo manga masterworks by Moto Hagio.

Anime World Order Show # 222 – So Much For the Laws of Physics!
In this episode, Daryl reviews a title suggested by our top Patreon backers as he reviews the now beloved super robot OVA series from 1998, Shin Getter Robo, which for the sake of avoiding confusion we might just want to call Getter Robo: Armageddon.

Anime World Order Show # 221 – It Wasn’t C-Beams Glittering Near the Tannhauser Gate, It Was Otaku Tears
We're joined by longtime mecha enthusiast Rob Lantz as we offer up a MOSTLY SPOILER-FREE review of Gerald's favorite OVA series of all time: 1988's Aim for the Top! Gunbuster, the pro directorial debut of Hideaki Anno and one of the first subtitled anime ever legally released in the United States which is now available on Blu-Ray. It's uh, kind of a big deal.

Anime World Order Show # 220 – Witness the Beginning of Toei’s Dark Universe
This was originally the intro of Show 219, but it took a little longer to edit. So, PRESTO! In Show 220 Gerald shares his thoughts on Knights of the Zodiac, the 2023 live-action film adaptation of Saint Seiya. Visit www.animeworldorder.com for full show notes and supplemental links.
Essential Since 2006
You can’t find another anime podcast trio with the knowledge and chemistry they have even after all these years.
The only anime podcast you need
Top reviews about anime classics, hidden gems and occasionally mainstream. Very knowledgeable hosts with much experience.
Best anime podcast out there.
I’ve been through so many other podcasts about anime that feature nothing but snide “nerds” who haven’t seen anything made before 2010 and are more annoying than enjoyable. I love this show and it’s nice to hear three different opinions plus a huge knowledge of all types of anime. Do I disagree with their opinions? (Especially Gerald?) Sometimes, sure. But most of the time they are right on and when they don’t like something, at least they explain why. Please keep going forever.
