Japanimation Station is an anime podcast where hosts Jonathan Lack and Sean Chapman, creators of Weekly Suit Gundam, create deep dive conversations not just on individual shows, but on complete bodies of work, approaching these shows not just as fans, but with a fresh pair of critical eyes. We get deep into the stories, characters, and aesthetics, but also place the series and their creators into the proper contexts of history, backstory, and behind the scenes details that make these works so special. And, hopefully, we’ll have some fun along the way. Welcome to Japanimation Station.

Great Way to Find New Shows

I initially started listening a few years ago to have a guide on UC Gundam because the decades of continuity made it rather overwhelming to approach. I found myself sticking around after they started discussing other shows and also checking out episodes of their main Weekly Stuff podcast due to their in-depth research and discussions. The effort they put into their research makes every episode interesting and has made me check out shows that had never interested me before. If you enjoy learning about the anime industry and film theory in general, this podcast is a great resource to gain a greater understanding of those topics and find some great new shows to add to your watchlist.

Great for new and old Gundam fans

This podcast got me back into Gundam. Love the discussions. Would like to hear discussions of other Mecha series like Eureka Seven
