For June, I'm discussing one of my favorite shoujo manga: CLAMP's Tokyo Babylon! So of course, I had to recruit Lucy & Robin of the wonderful CLAMPcast in Wonderland to help me do an extra long deep dive of this bold & stylish, supernatural queer cult classic: What makes it so special, why it being "problematic" is actually important, how it's themes & story elements are still relevant over 30 years later, and most importantly: THE FASHION! We discuss the basics of the characters and story up until the SPOILERS, which start around 1:50:00. Enjoy!

This month’s episode is another short ReView! What is a “ReView” episode, you might ask? Well, it’s my highly-clever (ok not really) name for episodes where I go back and revisit an older title I haven’t seen in a long time, and see if what I remember (and what my opinions on it) are still the same now that some time’s gone by. And with this April ringing in the 35th Anniversary of Dragon Ball Z's premiere in Japan, what better time to revisit one of my favorite movies from the franchise--movie #12, "Fusion Reborn!". Will this film still come out victorious as one of my top faves, or will I realize I made a mistake and it's a ridiculous mess? Let's find out!

FireFarret ,

A retro weeb dream!

Do you like forgotten, obscure, retro, or old media? Check! Are you an Otaku, and love anime and manga? Check! Do you love finding lost gems? Check! Each episode the host goes into detail on titles that would be forgotten to newer generation of anime fans. It’s easy to see the hosts love for these titles, and I have yet to finish an episode without thinking “man, I really want to watch/read that!

LavinaRose ,

A space for fun nostalgia and in-depth nerdism

As someone who’s been into Manga and anime since the 90’s, it gets hard for em to get into the new Titles and media.

Media that refuses to adjust to the current progress, media that sticks harmfully to it guns to minority representation and issues.

It honestly disheartening and keeps me holed up in hope of re-release and remaster of older titles.

This Podcast, rejuvenated my interest in the medium.

The recommendations, the analysis, and the sheer fun presentation and love for Manga and anime is refreshing.

And quite honestly, excuse the boldness, I’m tired of Male centric views and opinions regarding manga and anime aimed at women and minorities, and their entitlement in thinking their opinion is above correcting or reversing.

Therefore, if you’re like me, and you want to spend time after a long office day job to Someone who is knowledgeable and sincere in their love for nostalgia and the medium, you’re in the right
podcast.
Go Bunny!
You got it girl!

TuzoAnime ,

Terrible Podcast One Star.

I'm a simp I can't give you one star. This is going to sound alwful, but it needs some male energy.
