AWA 2010 – Anime’s Craziest Deaths Title Listing

Ouch. We sort of stopped podcasting for the last month and change, huh? Well, not technically; we put in a bunch of guest appearances on OTHER podcasts. We just didn’t release new episodes of our own because we were busy preparing for Anime Weekend Atlanta (convention report forthcoming). In addition to my Panel OF DOOM!, Anime’s Craziest Deaths was back with about 45 minutes of new material. Subsequent editions of the panel at AWA will probably be about an hour long to help make room for more all-ages appropriate programming (that and it’s NOT EASY to find new clips since they barely make this sort of thing anymore!), but here’s the listing of what went down (note that whenever possible, if a same title was reused from previous installments, different clips were shown):

Rurouni Kenshin OAVs
Dark Warrior
Lily C.A.T.
Cybernetics Guardian
Battle Royal High School
Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan
Sword of the Stranger
Battle Angel
Hellsing Ultimate
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
Shadow Skill
Macross Plus: The Movie
Angel Cop
Wicked City
Ghost in the Shell (movie)
Princess Mononoke
The Professional: Golgo 13
Blood: The Last Vampire
New Fist of the North Star – only at AWA does the mere sight of Kenshiro before he does anything result in the biggest applause of the night
Zambot 3
Ideon Movie 2
Vampire Hunter D
Dai Mahou Touge aka Magical Witch Punie-chan
Lupin the Third: Dead or Alive
Space Pirate Captain Harlock SSX – this plus the new CG movie trailer means now everyone knows DON’T F*CK WITH HARLOCK
Black Lagoon
Mobile Suit Gundam
Mad Bull 34
Crystal Triangle

The Video Art Track (VAT) was filled to capacity and then some, though about halfway through the show about 25-33% of the crowd all got up and left. I don’t think it was because “the crowd was burned out” so much that Anime HELL was beginning right at that same time. Heck, that’s where I would have been, otherwise! Here’s hoping that next time with the shortened running time I won’t find myself put opposite other “wacky clip” panels, since it’s generally the same crowd who goes to them.

  1. I know you guys are busy but please please please release a new podcast soon. My drives to and from work are long and boring and I always listen to the AWO podcast to keep me awake. I believe I have listened to all of the old episodes now so give us something new. Hell, upload 3 hours of raw unedited recording we’ll listen to it!

    [Now that the major conventions are over for the year (and that I’ve beaten Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2), we should be able to resume recording this week. Except now I want to replay Mass Effect 2. –Daryl]

  2. where can i get the video? i wanna see it all over again 😀

    [There actually is no single video. I have a series of clips which I arrange and show in real-time at each panel. I can’t really upload the clips anywhere either, since they’d probably just get taken down, but if you want to re-experience the might and glory, I’m going to try and work something out in the near future that might help in that regard! –Daryl]
