With us keeping up with our own hallows eve tradition from last year, Jonn and Zeonic decided to help you guys out on this darkest of nights. Wither you’re out trick-or-treating as  a manchild, on your way to visit your friends to delight in watching crappy scary movies, or trying hard to get hooked up at the club with no such luck. Whatever the case, we will fill your ears with hearing how we celebrate Halloween night, the Go Nagai way! So for this year, we call on the powers of the second OVA of Devilman.

(0:00 – 33:20) Review: Devilman OVA – “The Demon Bird”: If you are looking for “that” anime on Halloween night to watch, then look no further than finding most of the works by Go Nagai. Last year was just part one of Jonn and Zeonic going through the pits of Go Nagai Hell, only to find that both must continue their quest to finish the Devilman OVA’s. This time they are threatened by redneck demon turtles, water shaping demons, harpies, demon rhinos and such harpies nuking Japan… and SATAN! This is of course SPOILED to you guys, as we throw in brief talk of Chris Chan, Go Nagai other works, when Parkour started, and other misc. crap… you know, the usual. You can more than likely expect us to cover the Amon: Apocalypse of Devilman anime next year (gif NSFW probably).

(33:20 – 1:05:46) Off-Topic Ramblings: Half way through this recording, we pretty much were done with whatever we had to say about Devilman, so that ventured us off to discuss other topics of interest. These include: what “was” on sale on RightStuf, Lupin the 3rd discussion, Zeonic seeing Little Nemo as a child without knowing it, stupid opinions on twitter, HASHTAG GAMERGATE GATE GATE #ANIMOOGATE RAGE, and the issues of fansub weeaboo’s out there (speaking of, here is the F fansub link and Reporter Blues so far. Guys. its ok to fansub anime thats in another language, because we wants to see it!) So with that, Happy Halloween and see you guys next time!

Music Selection:

OP – We will keep this show going on for a while…

ED – This devil didn’t really lose this fight…

This show has:

I have never seen better “parkaying” before this…

“I never heard of harpies…” (click at 11:30)

  1. Devilman 4ever. I’m gonna demand at least one Devilman related review/discussion a year until you run out of material.

    Chris-Chan, the man(tomboy?), the legend. Sweet Jesus.

    I also need to watch a good chunk of Lupin. The only Lupin I own right now is Discotek’s release of the first series. Gotta get on those movies and stuff sometime. Definitely excited for Cagliostro.

    • We will gladly meet that demand, as Amon is a shoo-in for next years special. Unless you have other halloween themed anime you want us to review, you are welcome to suggest those (I know we can do Lily Cat, Roots Search and the original Vampire Hunter D movie).

      Chris Chan never seems to stop surprising people with his actions. It seems every episode now has us saying something about him, because he still continues to be a source of content.

      Yea im stoaked to get Castle of Cagliostro on DVD in Dec. They got a lot of material to go with it also.
