Episode 20 – The One With Tiffany Grant

Look who’s back, back again! Episode 20 of Kaiju Curry House is now available to download and/or streaming, whatever takes your fancy.

In this episode “The One With Tiffany Grant” the Curry House hosts are joined by surprise, surprise Tiffany Grant, an American actress and script writer who has done a number of kaiju related things, but most famously Neon Genesis Evangelion as Asuka. Tiffany talks about Neon Genesis and the recent re-release/re-dub that’s available on Netflix, how to be a good fan when you go to a convention, her role in Gamera, thoughts on the Tremors franchise (I couldn’t resist) and more.

Thank you to the group who posed their questions. If you have any favourite Tiffany moments then please share them with us.

Of course you’ll also hear what have been up to and “If nothing else” to keep you informed.

The One That Nobody Can Agree On

Episode 11

Hello kaiju fans, episode 11, “The One That Nobody Can Agree On” is now available for you to download and/or stream.

In this episode we take a deep dive in to the anime phenomenon that is Neon Genesis Evangelion. Now I say we, but I haven’t seen the show since around 2002, so I bring very little to the table. However Alex and Joe love this series and talk at length about the true meaning behind this beloved franchise.

If you aren’t a massive fan then perhaps they guys will persuade you to give it another shot, and at the very least there are still the sections “what have kaij-you?” been up to and “If nothing else”.

Spoiler warning, this episode will discuss the full series and both feature films, so if you haven’t watch it, but are planning to you might want to binge it on Netflix first to avoid any spoilers.

If you want to chat with us about the show, or have another anime with kaiju to suggest as a topic drop us a tweet or message in the Facebook group.

Hope you enjoy!

Costume Couture: Do You Even Gijinka?

Of all the trends in cosplay, gijinkas are probably one of our favorites.  A gijinka, if you aren’t sure, is a human version of a non human character. Cosplayers get to bring out the largest amount of creativity when designing these costumes. There is literally no right or wrong way to do it. This episode, Ian and Rae throw gijinka suggestions at each other and ask them to cosplay it in 5 minutes or less. That’s right; it’s our first game show. Do you have any gijinkas in your wardrobe? What would you be interested in cosplaying? Check it out our video below and see if our hosts were up to the challenge.

Costume Couture: Do You Even Gijinka?

SMT08: Cowboy Bebop, Futurama, Blueberry Morning

We are taking our first animated trip overseas with an episode of the Japanese anime series Cowboy Bebop (Cool your transforming jets, weaboos. This may not happen again). We discuss the somewhat controversial episode Cowboy Funk, arguably the most cartoony episode of Bebop. Maybe 2nd to Mushroom Samba?

Then we travel far into the future and a bit into the past with an episode of what is probably our shared favorite show after early Simpsons, Futurama with the fantastic episode Roswell that Ends Well. We discuss the sad hungry bug monster that is Doctor Zoidberg, explore what Bebop’s Fey and Futurama’s Fry have in common, and ask why Fry becoming his own grandfather doesn’t impact his descendant, Doctor Farnsworth.

We finish things out with a discussion of the healthy granola-adjacent cereal, Blueberry Morning.

Are you a fan of Cowboy Bebop or Futurama? Of course you are! Let us know your favorite ep in the comments or on Twitter @HeroesPodcasts!

The 50 Best: Heroes of Women, #30-21

It’s not everyday that heroes comes along and changes the course of American history.  For the next five weeks, we count down the 50 best women heroes in fiction. Heroes were chosen from every platform of pop culture, including film, tv, literature, and stage.  They were also inspired by you, the fans, on the many polls that the Heroes Podcast Network can offer. Lastly, the women were chosen based on their iconic statuses, fandom following, and the admirable qualities the individual characters possess.

Looking for a bunch of dudes? Aren’t we all? Don’t worry; the 50 best men heroes in fiction is up next! But what about the great baddies of history too? Yep, that list is in the works as well! Now, enjoy the countdown. Here’s #30-21.

#50-41 can be found here. #40-31 is here.

30. Jessica Rabbit

a1ea2904c18237d8f644fe4f29fe2356

Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
While some only focus on Jessica’s looks (and she’s hot, like, the hottest cartoon ever), she is so much more than that. She’s often mistaken for this femme fatale. She even says, “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.” Throughout the movie, it’s revealed she cares deeply for her husband, Roger, and does everything in her power to keep him safe (despite his constant buffoonery).  Jessica is a highly intelligent, multi-talented woman. She was everything I wanted to be when I grew up as a little kid.  She may exemplify what are now cliched movie tropes, but she never comes off as just a gimmick. Instead, she’s a woman you want to know.

29. Katniss Everdeen

hunger-games-first-movie-clip-jennifer-lawrence

Hunger Games franchise
Is there anyone more inherently flawed than Katniss? Beginning the story as a girl determined only to survive, she transformed over the course of the three novels. Her skills and defiant attitude kept her alive throughout the Hunger Games, and eventually turned her into a martyr for Panem. She didn’t always embrace the role others put upon her, never being afraid to speak her mind. Her actions were often motivated by her simple wish to keep her family alive. Most of them, however, is what the country loved about her. It was through her sheer force of will, her determination just to live, that the tyrannical thumb which Panem was held was finally broken.

28. Morticia Addams

anjelica-huston-morticia-addams-bullet-blues

The Addams Family
Can you think of a more perfect homemaker? I know I can’t. Created in 1938 as a satirical opposite to the American Dream, Morticia was paved as the head of the household from the beginning.  She has always been level-headed and fair, favoring no one member of her family more than the other.  She kept everyone in line and never seemed bothered by anyone’s antics, often embracing them with love and respect.  She and her husband Gomez are without a doubt the best depiction of an equal and loving partnership ever created (and I will fight you on that one).  The two compliment and balance each other, their passion and romance never wavering, never compromising.

27. Leslie Knope

PARKS AND RECREATION -- "Galentine's Day" Episode 617 -- Pictured: Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope -- (Photo by: Colleen Hayes/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images)

Parks and Recreation
I don’t think there are enough words to express my love for this character. Leslie Knope is resilient. Set in a town where the majority of the population is against her good intentions, she is rarely bogged down by the negativity that surrounds her. She loves her town and she will do everything she can to serve it, even if that means going temporarily insane with love for it. Leslie is the sum of her parts, and her parts include the innumerable cast of supporting characters who back her up daily.  No person is successful on their own and Leslie’s success only gets better because of her friends in the Parks Dept. She is the fiercest friend and a woman we’d all be lucky to be one day.

26. She-Ra

hs_5

She-Ra, Princess of Power
It must be an easy life when you’re born to the King and Queen of Eternia. But that all goes down the toilet when you’re kidnapped at birth by the evil demon Hordak and taken to Etheria to be a brainwashed soldier in his army. Princess Adora never had a chance. Until one day she escaped and embraced her role as She-Ra. Now, originally, she was created to tap into the girl toy market for the He-Man audience, but she became so much more than that (kinda like her journey in the show). She’s one of the ultimate feminist icons: a princess and a warrior, kind and brave, intelligent and humble. She’s a worthy role model for any young person, girl or boy.

25. Scout Finch

atticus-and-scout

To Kill a Mockingbird
It may be difficult to think of a little Southern six year old as a hero, but giving To Kill a Mockingbird a second glance proves just how heroic Scout really is. Over the three year course of the novel, Scout is faced with situations that would make adults uncomfortable. She breaks up an angry mob. She is the only one to see Boo Radley. Scout is in the difficult position throughout most of the novel to see good people punished for good deeds because they go against the current social norm. She spends a lot of the book unable to understand this and angry at those who hate/taunt her father in particular. It’s an almost impossible to identify with as a reader, but watching her grow to understand how cruel the world can be as well as the symbol of the mockingbird itself, is powerful enough to stick with a reader for years. Very few are lucky enough to be a Scout, but we all desire to be that good.

24. Korra

1200

Avatar: Legend of Korra
It was incredibly difficult to narrow down which woman from Avatar should be featured. Each and every one possess the traits to inspire, including Azula.  Ultimately, though, it’s hard to win over the main character of a series. Korra has been an innovative addition to the world of Avatar. She began the series with the perpetually defiant phrase, “I’m the Avatar; deal with it,” a line that has resonated in my head since I first heard her speak it. She’s feisty and proud, both often leading to some pretty epic failures and some incredible successes.  She doesn’t just fall once; she falls a hundred times. Each time, she picks herself up, threatens to quit, and then does it again. It was her determination that captivated us. As viewers, we all saw ourselves in Korra at one time or another. We, too, are afraid to admit our shortcomings, but determined enough to defeat them. If someone so flawed, yet kind and wonderful, can be the balance to a chaotic world, then maybe, we are the balance to our worlds.

23. Samus

smash_samus_big

Metroid
You may be wondering why Samus is on this list. She’s not particularly interesting. Multiple writers over the years have kept her personality minimal so that players could more easily picture themselves as the title character. Was she the most influential character in video games? Absolutely not. This woman is on this list because she is in fact a woman. You had to beat the entire game in order to get to the beautiful finale of Samus being a woman.  At the time, it was shocking, and seemingly unimportant. For some magical reason, we were just a little less hung up on sex and gender back then, and it allowed for some special moments like this. This is more important now. A kick ass, long standing, battle star woman saving the universe is exactly the type of person that young people need to see themselves as while playing a video game.

22. Supergirl

supergirl-CW-DCU

Supergirl comics, DC
Kara Zor-El could have easily been a rip off of her more famous cousin. However, the writers turned it around so fast. They made her independent and identifiable on her own.  She remains optimistic in times of catastrophe, which come almost at every turn.  As a teenage survivor of the destruction of Argo City and Krypton, her kindness and compassion was often mixed with a hot temper and aggression.  Hers has never been an easy life, but she perseveres.  And through her many transformations, both comic and film, more and more people have been influenced by her.  New audiences can be exposed to her heroism in more mediums than most other characters on our list.  She’s iconic and necessary to the feminine culture.

21. Sailor Moon – Usagi

1200x630set1

Sailor Moon
There are many things that make the sweet Usagi important.  She fought evil by moonlight! Seriously, though, she was a fearless and kind leader for many years over many teams. She wasn’t always perfect, but she was always fair.  Usagi treated everyone, including the her enemies, with compassion.  Her sweet demeanor was often mistaken for naivete and weakness, but she should never be underestimated. Usagi was a true friend first and foremost, proving that despite villainy in the world, she had her priorities straight.  She was a pal, a mother, a superhero, and at even one point, a goddess. Sailor Moon was a true hero for everyone.

So there you have it, our next 10 women heroes. What do you think of our list so far? Tune in for #11-20 soon!
