VCinema Guest Hosts On Podcast On Fire – Mamoru Oshii Double Feature!

It must be the season because we have yet another appearance by your friendly neighbor Asian film blabbermo…podcasters on a show that’s not their own.  This time, I guest hosted on Podcast On Fire Network’s latest season of Japan On Fire, a series that focuses on (surprise) Japanese cinema.  This season is focused on animator/filmmaker/basset hound lover Mamoru Oshii, which was initially a surprise for me, but a pleasant one since I hadn’t had a chance to take in all of his work.

The first of the two episodes that I’m on looks at his 1985 indie OVA Angel’s Egg.  During the second of the two, a bonus episode by POF’s reckoning, we discuss In The Aftermath: Angels Never Sleep, a New World Pictures oddity that wasn’t directed by Oshii, but used footage from Angel’s Egg mixed with a live-action post-apocalyptic story.  Sound weird?  Check out both episodes and find out more.

The Angel’s Egg episode can be downloaded from Podcast On Fire here or iTunes.

The In the Aftermath bonus episode, on the other hand, is only available on Podcast On Fire here.
