The Speakeasy #016: Fantasy Island, A Primer on Fantasy Anime

Anime 3000 presents The Speakeasy Podcast:
Drink #016:
Fantasy Island,
A Primer on Fantasy Anime

In 1937, J. R. R. Tolkien wrote The Hobbit which in many ways set the stage for modern fantasy literature across the world. In 1974, Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson published Dungeons and Dragons which is the most iconic fantasy role-playing game ever created. These and many other fantasy material have long since influenced the anime community and helped shape a small but vibrant fantasy anime genre. As fantasy fans ourselves we are going to look at the various sub-genres of fantasy anime and point out some titles to watch. Just as a warning although we mention it in passing we do not go into detail about the tons and tons of elf-related hentai. That can be the topic of a different podcast.
