Here are this week's releases.
For Renton, every day's the same. Nothing happens, nothing changes. He goes to school, he goes home. The only thing that keeps him happy is lifting on his ref board. Then one day, a giant mecha called an LFO comes crashing down on him - literally. Inside is the most beautiful girl he has ever seen!
The thing is, the girl is on the run from the military with her stolen mecha, and she's brought trouble with her. Renton will have to summon up all his courage to face his childhood hero; get the girl he's hopelessly smitten with to like him; and - oh yeah - live up to the legacy of his father who saved the world. But hey, at least it's not boring anymore.

Upon many growing email requests for a “Must see before you die Anime & Manga list” I thought I’d go a second round and give a more thorough look into title recommendations for both mediums
Alright so, from weeks of deliberation with my various fellow Otaku brethren on and off the podcast as well as through some extensive research from the likes of ANN, ANIMENFO, ANIDB & MYANIMELIST what I have cooked up here folks is an updated and rebooted list of MUST SEE ANIME & MANGA TITLES…for almost anybody open to the mediums…fanboys and newbies alike!
Now generally speaking these kinds of suggestive lists typically highlight some of the most agreed upon classics most fans would have already known about but let’s be honest here, no matter how impartial and objective you try to be with these things there is always bound to be someone else out there who will find fault or even claim bias on the chosen selection…and that is perfectly fine…..in fact it would be dumb not to be expected
These kinds of lists should be seen as more of a guideline / gap filler into the best or even possibly the overlooked gems that the medium’s have had to offer and as such it can be very helpful for quite a few folks
I’ve tried to generate this list based in terms of agreed quality first and foremost not just on accumulative popularity which is why some of the more obvious long running shows will not be on this list at all, however for this list I’ve tried to stick with titles that have more or less finished their story run – giving you the opportunity to make your own final open and shut case point about each title…..for the most part
This time around I’ve tried to keep it a little bit more varied in terms of genre and target demographic, ya know, so people can pick out something that may be of a particular taste to em
This list is NOT in any particular order

and welcome to DREAMcast’s first Halloween instalment of The NIGHTMARECAST
Yes that’s right folks on this episode your host’s Donwun & The Old Boy wrestle with the interesting topic of your not so friendly protagonist THE ANTIHERO!
Now at first this might not seem like a particularly ghoulish topic for a Halloween podcast but when you come to think about it these so called dark hero’s have raised the bar in what people in general are used to seeing in terms of violence and horror. So to drive that point on in our conversation for once we here @ DC broaden our discussion into the wide world of Television and Film bringing up some the more recently enjoyed Antihero brands.
Things like Dexter, Breaking Bad, The Punisher, The BATMAN, movies where people are enjoying chaos, murder and horror: SAW, Piranna 3D, Nightmare on Elm Street…ya know the commonly know stuff
This leads me to ask the question what actually scares us nowadays in media.....in where we have a startling revelation about Katface(well, startling to me anyway)
Then once we get all that outta the way we get back to the Anime & Manga stuff in true Halloween fashion, which leads us onto what should be the epitamy of terror….DEMONS
DEVILMAN – a title me and katface have been looking forward to discussing on the podcast for a while now
We also discuss Demons in general and how in anime and manga they are pretty much seen as any other normal character…with no real emphasis on terror, hell or anything else you would think a demon would be about....more of a means to an end in terms of power and other exploitable traits....bah
Then we end with some nice Halloween recommendations
Oh did I not mention we are joined on this episode by an uninvited guest that has escaped from prison…..AGAIN!
And lastly here’s some are EXTRA LINKSrelated to some of the topics discussed on this episode
