It’s Popzara’s Movie Time! Podcast…with an anime twist! Japanese animation reached unprecedented heights in 2022, with an astonishing number of anime films showing up in theaters across the country – even topping the box-office. To mark such tide-turning events regular host Ethan Brehm takes a well-earned breather as Sensei Nate Evans is joined by Popzara’s own Chris “Wolfman” Mitchell and – making his podcast debut – Sebastian Stoddard in a kawaii-packed episode looking at the best theatrically released anime movies of 2022. Plus a few surprises.
But there’s more! The gang also discuss anime-adjacent goodies like Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, Spy x Family, Chainsaw Man, Bleach Thousand-Year Blood War, Studio Ghibli’s Zen – Grogu and Dust Bunnies, the domination of Netflix-produced anime, Junji Ito anthologies, why 3DCG is so jarring, the Japanese-ness of Ghostwire: Tokyo, and so much more. Ganbatte!
