Podcast – #19 ‘A Bit of the Old Ultra Violence’

Hi Everyone,

In this episode Lewis and I dig out some 80s OVAs that were typical of a lot of the material being released in OVA form in Japan at the time and for anime fans who got into anime fandom in the UK during the 90s formed the bulk of the VHS anime releases that the likes of Manga Entertainment, Kiseki and Co were putting out. So yes, were looking at violent action OVAs with review’s of the first anime adaptation of Yoshiki Takaya’s Guyver manga; Guyver: Out of Control and Takeyuki Kanda’s Blue Sonnet.

Thanks for listening,
