Fawn, Justique, and Nick unite for a new AudioShocker series all about animation! We kick off this podcast with a popular topic that’s sure to be on every Animatic Attack episode for the foreseeable future — The Legend of Korra: Book 2: Spirits!
We tear apart the first two episodes of Book 2, Rebel Spirit and The Southern Lights, searching for clues about the direction of the ongoing story. Is Korra’s Uncle Unalaq manipulating her for an evil purpose? Or are the show’s writers simply trying to trick us by making him seem so suspect?
Then we take a break from our Korra conversation to review From Up On Poppy Hill, a 2011 Studio Ghibli film that’s finally on DVD in America! Directed by Goro Miyazaki (with a screenplay by his legendary daddy, Hayao), it’s a beautiful movie with elegant animation and a challenging plot involving

We wanna give you the From Up On Poppy Hill DVD! To enter our giveaway, leave a comment below telling us your favorite Studio Ghibli / Miyazaki movie and why you love it so much. The deadline is Tuesday, October 8th. We’ll announce the winner on Animatic Attack #2.
Then it’s back to Legend of Korra as we analyze the third episode of Book 2, Civil Wars Pt. 1. We dig the drama going on with Korra, but we’re more delighted by the dynamic between Aang and Katara’s kids — Bumi, Kya, and Tenzin. Also, Fawn drops a crazy theory about Jinora and the potential existence of TWO Avatars!
NEXT: We’ll return in two weeks with The Legend of Korra: Book 2 episodes 4-5 and the deliciously trippy Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure.
