Plead The 5555th

It’s been a long time coming.  We recorded this show back in August.  We have no excuse…but better late than never!  And, at least this podcast is about an excellent anime, Leiji Matsumoto and Daft Punk’s sci-fi masterpiece Interstella 5555.

In this first part of our Interstella show, we talk about what the thing is, how it came together, our personal histories with it, and some high-level, spoiler-free stuff we really really like about it.  If you’ve never seen this anime, we hope we can sell you on it, and if you have seen it, then we hope you’ll hear about it ONE MORE TIME.

Also: what is the best scene in anime involving a shark?  Who was the actress that inspired Leiji Matsumoto’s iconic female character design?  Did Shadon spoil Harry Potter for you?  Let us know.
