Episode 216: Miracle Train and lots of previews

We’ve got a great show this week. Per request I go a bit more indepth on skiing in Hokkaido. We also talk about the news and then Anime. Batou reviews Miracle Train and I did a first episode preview of the following nine (that’s right, nine) new shows: Ookami Kakushi, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, Chuu Bra!!, Dance in the Vampire Bund, Hanamaru Kindergarten, Kaito Reinya, Ladies vs. Butlers, Omamori Himari and Seikon no Quasar. Here’s a hint, they were mostly bad.

Show Notes


Intro – Errand by Faylan from Seikon no Qwaser
Outro – Neko Mimi Mode by Dimitri From Paris from Tsukiyomi Moon Phase


Miracle Train ~Oedo-sen e Youkoso~ – Wait until it hits the US and NetFlix it.

  1. I have a feeling that you misunderstand the appeal of BtTtS, the fact that you never mentioned once the name of Hideyoshi is just purely disgraceful XD

  2. … We really got to get you to review more “mature” content ichigo… priceless …. priceless… quote “she literly rides his face. like OH OH OH*pause*yea *pause* ok *pause*
    and it hade multiple view points. ..ect….” … very nice ichigo cant w8 for the next review. 🙂

  3. Neither is Tokyo. But the Oedo sen has two stops in the Nakano area, so he could be representing one of those. It’s not like he could be named “Higashi-Nakano”.

  4. I’m thinking that M. Night Shyamalyan (or however you spell it) will be on his way back with The Last Airbender.

    Avatar was good, too, Batou! Well, do I even have to say so? With all the people who have gone to see it, a friend on any side of you would be screaming it at you. Don’t just sit in you anime hole! BOTH Avatars can be a good experience.

    As for that Tekken trailer, um, they got the characters right (OK, Heihachi is not a buff grandpa); but the budget is cheap and it looks like there are no effects, in a movie which could really use it. It’s just martial artists badly acting in a cheap set.

  5. You mentioned in the news section about the new Chinese Anime Astro Plan. I checked it out and it is amazing how much it blatantly rips off Macross and Gundam. I mean damn…they didn’t even try to hide it. Also it is awsome hearing about Japan on the Podcast I am possibly going to Yokosuka in a few months to live and you have already added alot to my list of places to go.

  6. hi ichigo and batou, I am a listener from BeiJing and I really like your podcast, especially this episode so I put a comment on. I notice ichigo spend so much time on every first episode of this season’s new released Animes this time. I must say that is SO helpful! Now the 3rd episode of hanamaru kindergarten is about to come out and I am looking forward to it ’cause I love those 4-years-old girls! Thank you for make a preview on this season’s animes so I can watch hanamaru. (I was about to gave up while I heard from my friends that there was nothing good this week) Thank god I listen to your podcast later and gave hanamaru a chance! Thanks! Can’t wait for your next show!
    PS: your intro music. I admit it’s a so-so song. But that is a reminder of a lousy anime. Breast-feeding with combat? I mean, come on! are you really that bad taste ichigo
