Episode 112: Mugabe Musashi

In this episode of Anime Pacific, we (inexplicably) spend more time talking about Robert Mugabe than any other Anime Podcast combined: And that's a guarantee.

We also review Oshii's pretentious trainwreck magnum opus; Miyamoto Musashi and discuss the alarming amount of pedos crawling out of the woodwork for children's day.

Shootin' The Breeze

We dedicate several minutes to Robert Mugabe. Why? Who knows.

Review: Musashi: The Dream of the Last Samurai

"Whaddya mean Mugabe got re-elected!?"

Nothing spoils a masterfully tense yet exciting sword fight like two crudely animated narrators whose juvenile attempts at humour essentially spoil each and every successful scene preceding it. The idea of an anime documentary (or "doconime") is, in and of itself, a good idea. The way it was executed, however, leaves a lot to be desired.

How I miss "Patlabor 2" Oshii.
