We cover the divisive second season of one of the most talked about and exceptional animated shows ever created. This time round the Miyazaki influence is even more prominent, the animation veers from a little bit sloppy to more breathtakingly beautiful than it’s ever been, there are character and narrative issues, longtime fans still calling foul and love and hate being bent back and forth like so much water and fire.
Joining me once again after a year I have Daniel Floyd, the voice of Extra Credits, Joshua Garrity of the Cane and Rinse podcast and The Animation Archives, Sharon Shaw of Do Try This at Home, Jerome McIntosh of GameBurst and from Gonzo Planet, Duane Griffiths. As well as this epic round-table session I have included essay materials from Andy Rodriguez and Nama Chibitty, offering some quite differing perspectives on the overarching saga.
Next week: With the release of the audio drama based on my first novel: The Cartographer’s Handbook, the next show will be a spoiler-filled interview with some of the performers and a detailed discussion on how the book and audio were constructed.
