Where Angel ends up in compromising positions and finds herself  in a face off with the terrible new Canadian super threat, Crawfish Kettlecorn! I mean… THE SCOURGE!

Also this episode Jim ruminates about his latest comic convention experiences, and the treasure found within. And we also take a look at the first two issues of Michel Fiffe’s BLODDSTRIKE BRUTALISTS mini-series, and TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES URBAN LEGENDS 03 by Carlson & Fosco this episode.

Savage FINcast Presents… Anime Time Capsule – Episode 01: Read or Die OVA (2001)

Now for something completely different. Savage FINcast hosts Jim Purcell and Zac Hawkins come together to share their joint love of the Japanese form of animation, ANIME! Specifically the TV series, short-run direct to video original content, and feature films that made it to English speaking shores from the mid 90s to the mid 2000s. A golden age of bombastic action, femme fatales, truck loads of gory goodness, giant robots, and all the questionable English dubbing you can stand.

In this our premier episode, we take a look at the somewhat forgotten classic of the early aughts, 2001’s READ OR DIE. A three episode original video animation high on espionage action, quirky super-powers, and deadly symphonies. Yomiko Readman is the world’s most dangerous super-spy, and also its most easily distracted. She and her fellow agents of the British Library have to save the world from an army of deadly clones grown from history’s greatest figures.

Join us as we unpack this action classic in… The Anime Time Capsule!


This is a new podcast idea Zac and Jim have been floating around for a while, its not strictly Savage Dragon related, but we think fans of Dragon might get a kick out of these weird and cool shows/films. If this is something people would be interested in seeing more of, leave a comment below or send an email to If you’ve got a suggestion for an anime you’d be interesting in seeing us  cover in a future show, we’re always looking to add to our anime watch list. Hope you enjoy this new podcast offering from the guys at the Savage FINcast!
