    Will You Be Able to Survive? (Finale)

    Will You Be Able to Survive? (Finale)

    Unfortunately, due to increasing workloads, the pressures of real life, and 15 hour time difference, we have come to the difficult decision to end the podcast. While I know this was sudden, we ended up facing very few other realistic options. In this episode we discuss exactly why we had to end the show, as well as look back on some of our favorite shows and mechs while also talking about some of our plans that never came to fruition. Thank you to everyone who came along on this ride with us!

    That's One Way to End a Season (Aldnoah Zero 2/4)

    That's One Way to End a Season (Aldnoah Zero 2/4)

    We finish up the first season of Aldnoah.Zero, and wow that is an experience. We break down the developing relationships, this show's treatment of mental illness, and also try to unpack what the heck is going on in that ending and if Slaine is even a real character.

    A-1 Anime Sauce (Aldnoah.Zero 1/4)

    A-1 Anime Sauce (Aldnoah.Zero 1/4)

    This week we take on the relatively recent Aldnoah.Zero, and Ian naturally takes the opportunity to rant about the Fate franchise. We talk about Aldnoah's strengths (its fights) and its weaknesses (almost everything else), and we still come out the other side mostly enjoying it.

    Fighter Jet of the Gods (Macross Zero)

    Fighter Jet of the Gods (Macross Zero)

    We go back in time to the distant year of 1998 to discuss this prequel Macross OVA. We talk a lot about this series' use of CGI, its poorly organized plot, and its surprisingly interesting ramifications for the Macross franchise as a whole.

    Shin Getter Getter G (Getter Robo Armageddon 2/2)

    Shin Getter Getter G (Getter Robo Armageddon 2/2)

    We finish up Getter Robo Armageddon and are left feeling very lukewarm. We talk about the characters (eh), the wayward plot (eh), and the giant robot fights (yeah!!!!). Does anyone ever actually read these? I can never decide whether to use first or third person in the blurbs.

    No Fuss All Apocalypse (Getter Robo Armageddon 1/2)

    No Fuss All Apocalypse (Getter Robo Armageddon 1/2)

    Fresh off our background reading, we dive into the "standalone" OVA series, Getter Robo Armageddon! We talk through the references, art style, and Extremely Noticeable Director Change of the first half of this show. We also finally have a real, lengthy mech corner.

Mecha Goodness

The guys are great and their dynamic is fun and entertaining. Ian with the real-world insight and historical knowledge and Dan constantly going off the rails. A fun look at each show/movie/manga the boys get into. Solid stuff

Great podcast for Mecha fans!

I’ve been following the show for about 2 years or so now, and Dan and Ian have both been a joy to listen to. They cover a broad range of shows through all eras of anime, and it’s always interesting to hear their thoughts.
