Japan On Fire 14: Mamoru Oshii – The Red Spectacles & Patlabor

Kenny B and special guest Coffin Jon from VCinema continue their exploration of Mamoru Oshii and after quiet, surreal and religious anime in part 1 comes live action (anime) and a leap from the small screen to the big. Therefore we are reviewing The Red Spectacles (1987) and Patlabor (1989) in this episode.  Surrealism, absurdism and religious imagery is in need to be judged and the results are surprisingly favourable.

Japan On Fire 13: Mamoru Oshii – Angel’s Egg (1985)

Japan On Fire continues with anime but temporarily aborts the Studio Ghibli season for the start of the tale of Mamoru Oshii, director of Ghost In The Shell, Patlabor and Avalon. Ken and special guest Coffin Jon from VCinema talk of Oshii’s career, why he divides even fans of his work and in the second hour try and provide their interpretation of the Oshii 1985 anime Angel’s Egg. Also remember to check out our bonus episode featuring a review of the Australian Z-grade sci-fi movie In The Aftermath. It does connect to Angel’s Egg quite a bit as a matter of fact.
