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.
