In our newest contribution for the Bonus Round on Anime3000, we look at the first half of the 2009 Satelight show, the Guin Saga. An adaption of a classic Japanese fantasy series that ran for over a 130 volumes by scarily prolific author Kaoru Kurimoto. Guin Saga is the story of Guin a man with amnesia who is trapped in a leopard mask that helps the prince and princess of a fallen country as he tries to regain his lost memories. But as the Mongauli army peruses them they are forced deeper into the cursed land of Nospherus. We clearly enjoyed the books but how does the anime stack up? As a bonus we also have a dramatic reader from a “lost” book in the series. As a bonus besides your normal Thieves we have Otaku USA’s Caleb Dunaway as Remus, Patz fromInsert-Disc as Istavan, and Carl Li from Ogiue Maniax as the narrator.
Opening Song: “Guin no Theme (グインのテーマ)” by Nobuo Uematsu
Closing Song: “This is my road” by Kano
Skit Background Music: The First Advent ~ Kami no azakeri
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
What is the Speakeasy Podcast?
The Speakeasy is a podcast hosted by the Reverse Thieves where fans can pull up a stool and listen to an in-depth but casual conversation about the nuts and bolts of anime, manga, and fandom. The goal is not to review individual shows but the processes, themes, tropes, and concepts that go into making anime and manga what they are. A meta podcast if you like. Once a month the Speakeasy will try and solve another mystery while giving you a drink recipe to set the mood.
Who are the Reverse Thieves?
Hisui (Alain) and Narutaki (Kate) are two Japanese pop culture detectives for the blog the Reverse Thieves. The blog in an ongoing conversation about anime and manga with an emphasis on overlooked gems, broad trends in the industry and fandom, exclusive events at hot spots in New York City, and of course all things detective related. With a keen eye for detail one truth always prevails.
