ALL THE ANIME PODCAST - 25th March 2020
"Skynet is taking seed"
Jeremy Graves and Andy Hanley are back to bring you nearly 70 minutes of fun discussion to help pass the time.
Today, while they have every intention of trying to remain on topic that quickly doesn't happen as they begin talking about many Transformers related topics including the various old school animated series as well as the variety of classic Transformers comics and now manga available!
But they do get onto anime related talk, there's some brief discussion on the fact you can stream the Konosuba movie right now on Crunchyroll, and in the "what they've been watching" pile they talk about Fate/GO and the tv series of Eureka Seven!
And of course there's more questions from the community covering a variety of topics such as the possibility of us releasing/licensing certain titles, possible anime flavoured Pepsi Max collaborations and even what anime characters would we like to/hate to be stuck in lockdown with.
A fun show as always! Our next episode will be recorded on Friday and will be focusing on the discussing (at least) the first 3 episodes of Cardcaptor Sakura, which you can stream on Channel 4's All4 service HERE.
If you want to let us know what you thought of the first three episode of Cardcaptor Sakura, you can do so via Twitter/Facebook/Instagram and be sure to including the tag #AskAllTheAnime so we know it's a comment directed for the podcast. Continue Reading

Mariko Miyagi, who died on Saturday from malignant lymphoma, supposedly left her acting career behind in the 1980s, but remained prominent in the public eye for many further decades. A teenage vaudeville performer in the dying days of the Second World War, she swiftly rose to media stardom in the post-war era, initially as the singer of the Occupation-era toe-tapper “Nayamashi Boogie.” By 1956, she was playing the title character in Tenten Girl, one of the early TV drama hits, based on a manga by Shosuke Kurakane. In the days before video tape, she would finish her theatre performance and rush to the studio, changing costumes en route, ready to rush in front of the cameras. The samurai-era comedy-musical would also get two short movie adaptations in 1956, bringing Miyagi to the notice of the Toei studio.
Thanks to her singing voice and star appeal, Miyagi was selected to play Bai-Niang, the heroine in Toei’s animated feature White Snake Enchantress (1958, Hakujaden). This inadvertently made her one of the most prominent and influential voice actresses in the era of early anime, and the first anime pin-up. Continue Reading

One of Yui Ishikawa’s voice-acting roles tends to overshadow the others. We’re thinking about the taciturn giant-killer called Mikasa Ackerman. Ishikawa has voiced the character since the anime version of Attack on Titan debuted in 2013, and she’ll certainly be with her to the story’s end.
But as Ishikawa reveals in the following interview, her favourite character is someone else – namely the ex-army girl Violet Evergarden. First created by Kana Akatsuki in light novel form, the character’s journey through trauma and healing was animated by Kyoto Animation in an acclaimed Netflix series and now continues in feature films. As the first Violet Evergarden feature, Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll, comes to Britain, here are Ishikawa’s own thoughts on the character. Continue Reading
