Oldtaku no Radio # 013 – Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack

Happy (month of) Halloween! To celebrate, we at Oldtaku no Radio bring you the true horror that is Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack – the 2012 OVA which adapts Junji Ito’s Gyo manga. Because we were too scared to tackle this title alone, we decided to re-traumatize All Geeks Considered co-host Vinnie via an invite. After having read the original manga and watched the movie, we speak to the differences between them as well as what worked, what didn’t, and why. Press play and give a listen and don’t forget to leave a comment to share your thoughts or just say hi!

    • 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.
