We're Drew and Richard and we like cartoons and comics! Akihabara Renditions is the podcast dedicated to anime, manga and fan culture during Japan's Bubble Economy from the 1970s to 1990s. We're here to provide reviews, analysis and insight into anime and manga in North America and Japan. We also write for our blog at akibaren.net!

No clever titles, as Richard and Drew lay down the law and discuss the 1994 OAV, Taihoushichauzo!, AKA, You're Under Arrest. This episode was recorded back shortly after New Year's and before the world went to hell, so we open with some chit-chat about what we were up to closing 2019. We discuss the passing of anime seiyuu Inoue Makio and theatrica…
 
Richard and Drew sit down to chat about one of their favorite series in the Gundam franchise, nay, a favorite TV series of all time - 1985's Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. Zeta has been held highly in the pantheon of Gundam series but went through a long period of harsh criticism. Unlike a typical review of the series itself, we decided to discuss the se…
 
Drew and Richard are back with another edition of Akihabara Renditions' Creator Profile series! In this episode, we're going to discuss another titan of mecha anime fandom, the professional life of Kawamori Shouji. From his early career, through the success of Superdimension Fortress Macross, and beyond, tune in for our overview of his works! Downl…
 
In this episode, Drew and Richard talk about a panel they were planned to present at Anime Weekend Atlanta in 2018, the Yoroiden Samurai Troopers 30th Anniversary! We talk about the original TV series and the OAVs that came after. YST is a series that was near and dear to our hearts in our earlier fandom and is still a show we talk about off-air, s…
 
Japan is preparing for the abdication of its current Emperor, which means the coming of a new era! Actually, this doesn't mean anything except or history and political junkies... doesn't it? Well, not so fast! Drew will explain the significance and brief history of the Imperial Calendar system and Richard confuses monarchies for someplace that elec…
 
Upon us soon is the 40th Anniversary of the airing of the original Mobile Suit Gundam. A TV series whose original run went from being shortened due to poor ratings to one of the most visible anime franchises. It's success having gone from Japanese Star Trek to Japanese Star Wars. Drew and Richard sit down for a chat and reflect on the franchise's v…
 
It's that time of the year again, our annual tradition! The grand-daddy of them all - it's time for Christmas Craptacular! On this, the sixth edition of the Craptacular, we change nothing! We watch some shitty cartoons and report back to you dear listeners! Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! Download this episode, you geek!…
 
In this episode of Akihabara Renditions, Drew and Richard sit down and talk about a film that was seemingly everywhere in an earlier time of fandom but has conspicuously disappeared - 1987's Twilight of the Cockroaches! Take a trip down memory lane as we revisit a film we're seeing for the first time in two decades! As we mentioned in the show, the…
 
Hey everyone - if you're reading this then it means Drew is up late putting together a podcast because him and Richard are putting together panels for an anime convention! Which, just so happens to be the topic of our show! We'll be at Anime Weekend Atlanta presenting the following panels, so if you're also there, we'd love to meet the listeners! T…
 
Drew and Richard are back for another exciting episode of Akihabara Renditions! We get back to our roots and have a good, old-fashioned review episode about old Japanese cartoons. We're headed back to the heyday of the Bubble Economy era by reviewing two OAVs - Robot Carnival (1987) and Record of Lodoss War (1991). Download it you geek!…
 
In this exciting episode of Akihabara Renditions, Drew takes to stealing content from Twitter to get some discussion going for the podcast topic. First, Drew and Richard discuss the hashtag #FilmstruckFour and each select 4 anime that have shaped their overall taste in anime fandom. Then we turn the tables around and discuss something we hate about…
 
On this episode, Richard and Drew sit down with Basil and Kevin from the OSMCast about SeishunCon - Atlanta's Winter Anime Convention! We chat a little bit about programming and history of the convention, in the hopes of a longer recording about the show more in general - and guess what? When you're busy as a panelist and totally free-form your sho…
 
In this episode of Akihabara Renditions, we explore the life and work of a creator, in this case, director, whose work is near and dear to us: Tomino Yoshiyuki. We’re test driving a new format that we hope to expand into other episodes. Once we sat down and did our notes for this, we figured that this would be best split into two episodes.…
 
This episode has been in the can for a couple of months now. Back at the end of September at Anime Weekend Atlanta, Drew sat down with Basil of our Podcast Superfriends, the OSMcast, and discussed various anime streaming services and their state from a consumer perspective. Basil has some great analysis and theorizes that with the number of service…
 
Returning to our roots for a true, Akihabara Renditions tradition! Join Richard and Drew as we first subject ourselves to the pain of terrible Japanese cartoons then review and discuss them all for your listening, uh, pleasure? We've alerted the authorities and have sent the Kraumpus to Japan for the production crews responsible. Be warned, we've g…
 
Richard and Drew sit down and have a very brief discussion about Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky. A little bit of podcast rust and remnant tryptophan from the holidays, we'd mistaken Side 5 (Texas Colony) for Side 4 (Moore's Colony) when discussing this piece. Just the quality you'd expect from Akihabara Renditions! Hosts: Drew & Richa…
 
We're back for another episode of Akihabara Renditions! In this episode, we're going to talk briefly about a subset of anime fandom that is near and dear to our hearts - Plastic Modeling (PlaMo), particularly of the Gundam variety. It's a quick episode where we talk about some of the history, some of the different "lines" of GunPla and some build d…
 
In this episode of Akihabara Renditions, we continue the life and work of Tomino Yoshiyuki. We're picking up in 1985 and working our way up to 2017. Please let us know in the comments, via email, Facebook and Twitter how you liked this pair of episodes! Thanks for listening! Hosts: Drew & Richard Download this episode, you geek! Show Notes: Our sho…

In this episode of Akihabara Renditions, Drew and Richard sit down to talk about some of those first series of anime they saw that really drove them over the edge - those shows that went beyond just being cool cartoons but really encouraged us to dive really deep into the backgrounds of those shows. It provided for some great commentary and hope yo…
 
Richard and Drew come back for the first episode of Series 2 of Akihabara Renditions! This episode will introduce a little bit of a new format as Richard and Drew dust off some of the podcast rust and discuss what's been going on the last few years and the show topic. Hosts: Drew Sutton, Richard Hoelsher Check us out at akibaren.net!…
 
We're back with another fantastic episode. This episode, we discuss the epic 1990s OAV Giant Robo The Animation: The Night the Earth Stood Still. Just listen to the podcast and then watch this show. Hosts: "Suharashiki" no Drew Sutton, "Shougeki" no Richard Hoelsher, "Shikou" no Marc Smaik and "Shizukanaru" Taylor Hall. Download this episode!…
 
After Drew went to Japan (and returned), the crew went to Anime Weekend Atlanta (and returned), Marc and Drew began promoting Seishun Con while Richard went to Japan (and later returned), we've still managed to get some podcasts together. Please accept our apologies for the delays. With that said, episode 26 features a do-over for Richard and Drew …
 
Just before Anime Weekend Atlanta, we celebrate our twenty-fifth episode (and it only took 30 months to do!) by changing things up a little bit. Here at Akihabara Renditions, we do our reviews a little differently - we all are subjected to the material to be reviewed and each give our opinions on it. I think it makes for a much more balanced review…
 
Basil from the OSMcast, our podcast superfriends, sticks around with us for another part where crotchety old men talk about the new-fangled cartoons from Spirng 2009 this year. This episode would have been much, much better had it been released near-after it was recorded as we only look at the series as the first couple of episodes were available a…
 
Welcome back, friends. In this episode, our good friend Basil from the OSMcast! winds up in Atlanta and helps us along with our MTAC review - right on schedule as the convention was three months ago and the additional four to six weeks of S/H between review and posting. Releasing on schedule just isn't how we roll. :P Hosts: Drew Sutton, Richard Ho…
 
A magnificent podcast as Marc and Drew sit down and discuss MomoCon for what they thought would be a brief discussion. Marc sets a dangerous precedent by offering a party for listeners once a single episode's downloads surpass the number of fingers on a normal individual's fingers on two hands! So, order your drinks by downloading this podcast! Hos…
 
Episode 21 is finally ready (or not) to go! In this episode, we find out how much Drew loves the 1980s as we review Megazone 23 PART 1 and Project A-ko. I don't think his co-hosts will ever forgive him. Drew picked a fine time to get concerned over quality. At least, what he has control over and that's what has taken so long for this to get posted.…
 
This is not a normal episode by any length because we talk about a con AT A CON and are GUESTS on OUR OWN show. Plus - to get even more trippy, this is actually the SECOND piece of bonus material recorded at the convention for Akihabara Renditions. We introduce (not really) a guest and friend of ours, Jason Sohiel Asgari of gaijINside.com in an ear…
 
Baby, sometimes we just need some time away. So, we took a month off after the Christmas Craptacular. Then about another six weeks after this episode was recorded, we took some more time, because we're all nerds and therefore, lazy. However, to make up for the time apart, we're back with a big two part episode! In part 1 (or, according to MLS - Meg…

Episode 18 features three reviews of series that you'll have to download the episode to find out what! Our gift to you at the Christmas holiday season and for ringing in the new year is the second installment of our Christmas Craptacular series! Hosts: Drew Sutton, Richard Hoelsher and Marc Smazik. In this episode we review - I'm still not telling …
 
Finally, three months after the convention, this episode is edited down and is ready for your consumption. Consume! Podcast Notes: This episode has two components, the first recorded on Friday, 19 September 2008 when we sat down with a good friend of mine, Keith Daniell. Keith has been staffing with Anime Weekend Atlanta for the past 14 years, save…
 
With Anime Expo 2008 a few weeks away and our last episode several weeks before and the lack of news content in the past several shows, we decided to jump back in the game with some news-oriented discussion. Hosts: Drew Sutton, Jason Brown, Marc Smazik and Richard Hoelsher. I'm sure most of the news articles came from this fine site here but if you…
 
After a brief hiatus and considering a switch to a second "season" (and, deservedly being made fun of for it), Akihabara Renditions is back to touch upon another massively popular and important franchise to Japanese animation fandom. Hosts: Drew Sutton, Richard Hoelsher, Jason Brown and Marc Smazik. After our review of Mobile Suit Gundam F-91 back …
