Podcast – #9 ‘Before they were famous’

Hi Everyone,

Episode 9 of the podcast  is out. As a really big fan of Studio Ghibli and Isao Takahata in particular I wanted to take a look at what Takahata and compatriot Hayao Miyazaki were doing before they setup Studio Ghibli. So Lewis and I delve back into the late 60’s and early 70’s to look at two of their earliest works with reviews of Horus – Prince of the Sun and the Panda! Go, Panda! short films.

You can find the podcast on PodOmatic, iTunes, Stitcher and Soundcloud by searching for Retro Anime Podcast or play directly with embedded player at the top of the post.

Thanks for listening,



Horus – Prince of the Sun (Toei)


Panda! Go, Panda!
