THE AMATEUR OTAKU EP. 11 – Celebrating Studio Ghibli Part 2 (Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke)

Greetings, Otakus of All Ages!
Join The Amateur Otaku as they catch up on some of the different anime that they have been checking out lately. In midst of this, Brandon goes on a super Neon Genesis: Evangelion tangent and Doc Isak goes overboard with his madness in the best and most charming way possible. Also, as a follow-up to Episode 9, our celebration of Studio Ghibli comes to a close as we cover two more of their legendary films, Spirited Away (2001) and Princess Mononoke (1997). They share their love for these films and Brandon tries way to hard to wax poetic on the imagery and profoundness in an enjoyable deep dive on the wondrous messages and high art that emanate from these Ghibli masterpieces. You won’t want to miss their thoughts on this newest edition of the Amateur Otaku Podcast!
