Episode 84: Tokyo Godfathers

We’re wrapping up Ani-May this week with what I can honestly say is one of the finest holiday films we’ve ever featured on the podcast! Satoshi Kon’s 2003 holiday opus Tokyo Godfathers is a fairy tale about redemption, miracle babies, and all the good stuff you would hope a Christmas movie would be about, all wrapped in the guise of a quest narrative that’s slightly comedic and very melodramatic, but it all works out in the end.

Joining us this week are Niall Flanagan and Dwayne Moloney of the Secret of the Sailor Madness podcast. Niall and Dwayne are the best animation experts we know, leading us through the finer points of Satoshi Kon’s catalog, mid-2000s Japanese culture, proper “Ode to Joy” usage, and a whole lot more!
