“Little Gribbly Mushi – The Dragon Dentist Special”
With our home video release of The Dragon Dentist coming soon, join Jeremy, Andy and Keith as they put the focus on this first television anime produced by Studio Khara.
With us having just announced the plans for our home video release (see HERE), we conclude the week with the latest of our watch-a-long themed discussion episodes as the focus is on the first episode of The Dragon Dentist.
As well as talking about the first episode of this two episode feature in both spoiler-free and spoiler filled terms, we also delve into some background on Studio Khara; the studio formed by the creator of Evangelion, Hideaki Anno.
We also discuss how The Dragon Dentist was originally a short film as part of the Japan Anima(tor) Expo and ive you some useful background info on not only those but also the two-part feature as well.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a watch-a-long episode without Jeremy having a small quick for Andy and Keith to see just how much they were paying attention to what they were watching.
A fun 65 minutes of discussion to take you into the weekend!
