Double Edged Double Bill Episode 123 – Anime In a Pokemon Shell

This week, Double Edged Double Bill is returning to Japan with a special episode on anime. Adam and Thomas aren’t otakus by any stretch, but they’ve sought the help of previous guest and anime super fan Yonathan Habtemichael to help dissect this diverse and plentiful medium. First, they take a look at the highly influential action/sci-fi film Ghost in the Shell! Then, a thoughtful look back at the massive cultural phenomenon that was Pocket Monsters with Pokemon: The First Movie! Together, our trio answers all the important questions. Does John Cena owe his invisibility to anime? What is the upsetting canon backstory of Mewtwo? What two films will they choose for next week’s episode on the cinema of Spain? Well, release this episode from your Pokeball to find out!
