Oldtaku no Radio # 042 – Dennou Coil

As the song goes, “You always hurt the one you love,” and our takes on Dennou Coil (alt. Den-Noh Coil) are definitely not sparing. Scott Spaziani rejoins our humble ‘cast as we break down what endears this much-overlooked darling of a Sci-Fi series to us and explore some of its weaker points. This original story from Mitsuo Iso began production in 1997 and features tech that wouldn’t be made publicly available until nearly 20 years later! There are no spoilers discussed in the first half, so feel free to dive in to get a feel for whether this is something you’d like to watch. But after you’ve watched, continue on to our spoilerific section!

    • Jared Nelson's profile

      Jared discovered anime in the early 1990s through stacks of third-hand fandubs and Streamline Pictures tapes. By the tender age of 16, he was humming Macross 7 songs in art class, dreaming of Asuka Langley and hanging Rurouni Kenshin posters on his wall. A few years later he moved to Japan where he worked as an ALT (assistant language teacher) in Ibaraki and Fukuoka Prefectures. While he returned home with a deep appreciation for Japan, its culture, and its public transit system, Jared fell out of anime fandom and only returned in 2010. A self-proclaimed 3rd-level bard, Jared enjoys tabletop gaming and game design, video gaming, giant robots, history, comics, and most recently manga. He is also eternally late to the party.
