Episode 53: Cyberpunk Battleground (Akira vs Ghost in the Shell)


This week The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast forgets all about the superhero multiverse, and turns away from the horror genre, to open the door to another cookie in the jar; anime. This week Paul sings the high praises of two of the all time greatest juggernauts in the cyberpunk world of anime, 1988's "Akira" and 1995's "Ghost in the Shell".  It's a love affair, mainly Paul and his anime films.  So grab a java and get comfortable as The Bats, Bows n' Books heads off into the future landscapes of two classic tales from the land of Japan.

Outro Track: "Empty Streets" by Scandroid; from the 2016 self-titled release

Background music that can be heard throughout the episode originates from both the Akira Original Soundtrack and the Ghost in the Shell Original Soundtrack.
