Episode 129 - Big Hair, Bigger Conspiracy (Megazone 23 Part 1‪)‬ Vintage Anime Club Podcast

    • TV & Film

On this episode, join Dennis, Ed, Karen, and Kate as they discuss Megazone 23 OVA 1. One of the breakout hits of the early years of original video animation, we get to see all the tropes and other things we have taken for granted in modern anime with this 1985 release. Besides a great soundtrack and some potention inspiration for things like The Matrix and Dark City, there's also the sci-fi lineage from some of the minds behind Macross, Yamato, Gundam, Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Urusei Yatsura, and so much more. From government cover-ups, deepfake AI, prolific product placement, motorcycle robots, and the always fun plot explanation over a sex scene montage (which we call "sexplanation"), grab your leather biker gear and have a listen. Because it's time to get into the zone. The Megazone.
