Ya. I know. So? Its a childrens franchise made for children. Its just fun when they do something like that. Hence my comment. Its like when Toei made Akibaranger, it was weird and awesome.

Agreed, it really does capture the essence of team sports so damn well while blending it with shonen battle staples. There are a lot of great sports anime out there but this just captures the highs and lows so damn well. Annoyed I can’t find the 3rd season dub here... very annoyed. Read more

I grew out of the Pokemon anime well more than 10 years ago by this point. However, I do have to hand it to the Pokemon Company every little while they’ll put out an OVA series that just seems tailor made to the older generation that was left behind by the eternally 10 years old Ash Ketchum. Pokemon: The Origins was Read more

Not really. Tomino started getting depressed while making Space Runaway Ideon his successor series to Mobile Suit Gundam. By the time they brought him back and requested he make a new Gundam, which became Zeta Gundam he was already falling into depression. The story you mention has been debunked by the man himself. In Read more

Fun story. Gundam Unicorn was written (it was a novel series) as the epilogue to the original UC story of Char/Amuro and designed to be an ending. While Victory does still exist its hundreds of years in the future so Sunrise doesn’t do much with that. Its why it sort of confirmed that Amuro and Char were killed at the Read more

I like having my official stuff. Also the DVDs were cheaper then the Blurays and I have The Vision of Escaflowne on both DVD (Bandai Release) and Bluray (Funimation release) and got to say the Bluray isn’t a huge improvement. So I expect Wing which came out a year before The Vision of Escaflowne would likely look Read more

Also affordable I picked the Bluray off Amazon for $25 canadian. I actually just picked up the Wing DVDs last night.  Waiting for a sale on 8th MS Team to have all what I would consider essential series.

Seems to happen more often than not. I mean, I don’t really expect somebody to have seen EVERY Gundam to write about it, I haven’t, and I’ve written two ranking lists on the subject (The Worst and the Best), a 50 episode weekly blog, and some random articles, but like... there is some just basic mistakes here.

The original Mobile Suit Gundam was supposed to be a one off which ends on a hopeful note. As confirmed Newtypes take their place. It was only later when Sunrise realized that they could make a shit ton of money off merchandicing an eternal franchise of model kits did they ask Tomino to make more. At which point the Read more

I found it interesting which series they included. Most notably Wing which I expect is a branch to the west as Wing is not nearly as popular in Japan as it is here. Also this served as a nice reminder that Hathaway’s Flash is still a thing.

Actually it's pretty much everywhere but America. I just went to see Train to Busan in theaters and going to see Peninsula next week. Theaters are opening in lots of areas.

I’ve been expecting Mulan would be pushed to streaming. First of all its big tent poll films Mulan was designed, cast, shot, and marketed to appeal to China to help Disney get a foothold in the country. Since COVID19 the Government of China, which had a huge hand in allowing the production and marketing of this film, Read more

Well I agree with you. The Tick wasn’t as good as the original two series and The Boys is pretty awesome.

I got Salmonella (or something like it) from spinach last summer. By far the worst three days of the year, don’t risk it to save some onions.
