We’re not done awakening the trailblazers yet as planned, so for this special extra large THANKSGIVING DAY episode, Gerald’s put together another exciting trivia episode to expose how little Daryl and Clarissa know, even when the topics pertain to things previously reviewed on this very show! We’re joined for the festivities by a special guest, Dawn from the Anime Nostalgia Podcast, who accepted this invite with about 2-3 hours notice and just woke up prior to the start of the recording.

It’s a podcast. It’s a special podcast. It’s got super discussions about Code Geass, Berserk Season 2, Anime Weekend Atlanta 2016, and Gerald’s review of a Most Dangerous film from 1986, Ai City.
Introduction (0:00 – 58:28)
The emails ask the question that is either from or will summon That One Guy Who Always Comments Whenever We Mention Code Geass, since it’s about what we think about Code Geass aka “a show for which our thoughts on it have made people we know stop talking to us for years.” After about 17 or so minutes of that, the remainder of this introduction segment is dedicated to a convention report since Daryl and Gerald went to Anime Weekend Atlanta 2016 as Press. Actually, this ends up also becoming about Berserk Season 2, 91 Days, and the Takarazuka Revue’s production of Lupin the Third:
Promo: RightStuf Anime (58:28 – 1:04:45)
Normally, the promotion spot does not take over 6 minutes. But this time, we have to Get Our Shit In because Lupin the Third Part II Collection 1 is now available for preorder, and it features three episode-length commentary tracks by Daryl. The set ships on 12/20/16, just before Christmas, so preorder now to ensure your Christmas bounties are well, depleted because Lupin is a thief. On the subject of bounties and thieves, Daryl’s Twitch page with donations is here for those inclined to chip in now that he’s finally, FINALLY committing to the previous bounty incentive, Gundam 00.
Review: Ai City (1:04:45 – 1:54:34)
Gerald reviews this Most Dangerous anime from thirty years ago, in 1986. The article Daryl was referring to which he wrote is available to read on Anime News Network: Thirty Years Ago: The Best Anime of 1986 (note: Project EDEN should probably be considered a 1987 release, as I can’t find the proof that it premiered 4 months earlier ahead of the Japanese theatrical debut.) There was a follow-up as well, Twenty Years Ago: The Best Anime of 1996 (And Some Others Too). What is Ai City about? Let’s try to find out together. And don’t you jump in the comments to “correct” us after having read the Wikipedia entry for it either, because approximately 0% of that information is taken from what transpires in THIS movie.
