Dustin and John, hosts of the Anime of Yesteryear Podcast, team up with Fino to examine yet another of Yoshiaki Kawajiri’s works. However, Goku Midnight Eye mixes up the classic Kawajiri formula of having a cool-headed, snarky loner fighting strange creatures by adding the horrors of technology. With robot pterodactyls, migratory bird weapons, and stripper motorcycles running amok, what hope does our questionably-attired protagonist have?
This week’s topic is Ninja Scroll, the movie with bee men, exploding rats, outrageously large chins, and snakes erupting out of every orifice. Though it comes from the 90’s, this film carries on the 80’s spirit as only Yoshiaki Kawajiri could conceive.
Hosts: NoMachineGun, Moonhead, and Ace.
