In this episode of Akihabara Renditions, Drew and Richard sit down and talk about a film that was seemingly everywhere in an earlier time of fandom but has conspicuously disappeared – 1987’s Twilight of the Cockroaches! Take a trip down memory lane as we revisit a film we’re seeing for the first time in two decades!
As we mentioned in the show, the movie was aired as a one-off movie night on Cartoon Network on Night of the Vampire Robots, and someone uploaded the whole broadcast to YouTube.
Show notes update 2018-12-21: Discotek Media has licensed Twilight of the Cockroaches for DVD release early 2019!

Drew and Richard are back for another exciting episode of Akihabara Renditions! We get back to our roots and have a good, old-fashioned review episode about old Japanese cartoons. We’re headed back to the heyday of the Bubble Economy era by reviewing two OAVs – Robot Carnival (1987) and Record of Lodoss War (1991).
