    Cosmic Devil Daikengo - Episodes 24 - 26 [Final] So now to record our thoughts for the podcast. NG Knight Lamune & 40 - Episodes 1 - 6 I've long wanted to watch this show, I learnt about it in the early 00s in a book and watched the first few episodes when a fansubber called Nyoro-n started...

    Doraemon - Nobita's Dinosaur (Blu-ray) Watched ahead of a review on the next episode of the podcast. Japan Sinks 2020 - Episodes 2 - 7 I'm finding this interesting, I quite like the way the show tries to keep this optimistic tone going for our plucky survivors while undermining it with...

    Cosmic Devil Daikengo - Episodes 17 - 20 No Guns Life - Episode 14 Japan Sinks 2020 - Episode 1 I really liked this first episode, it was something a bit more adult and gritty, looking forward to the rest having avoided reading anything about it so far.

    Retro Anime Podcast - Episode 23 'Aces High'

    Thanks Craig 👍 Yes the music was good and we didn't talk about it, I really like MIO as well, the theme to L-Gaim has been my ring tone for about 17 years now! I think you're spot on with the extreme melodrama angle, I think Shintani was trying to come up with something that would keep people...

    Lupin III Part 1 - Episodes 10 - 23 [Final] An absolutely fantastic series, clever and genuinely funny and it looks really nice, but it is different and I can understand why it wasn't popular on it's initial run in 1971-72. You can also see the style and feel of the series change as Miyazaki...

    Lupin III Part 1 - Episodes 1 - 9 I picked up the Discotek set earlier in the year and wasn't planning on watching it just yet but after watching The Castle of Cagliostro it felt a good time to go back to the beginning. It's a great show with an easy charm about it but there is this underlying...

    Listeners - Episodes 11 & 12 [Final] Some good ideas but the writing was weak in the last few episodes and there just isn't enough room in 12 episodes to explore those good ideas which something that really frustrates me with the current everything is 1 cour anime production structure. The...

    Lord of Lords Ryu Knight Adeu's Legend II - Episodes 1 -3 [Final] A short sequel that is decent but doesn't have the quite magic as the first OVA. Lord of Lords Ryu Knight Adeu's Legend Final The obligatory chibi episode! Good silly fun though. I must get round to watching the original Ryu...

    Listeners - Episodes 6 - 10 Desert Rose I thought this was really entertaining, product of it's time blah blah and all that but good fun nonetheless. Lord of Lords Ryu Knight Adeu's Legend - Episodes 1 - 3 Now that I have the sequels to this massively overlooked but hugely entertaining OVA...

    Listeners - Episodes 1 - 5 I held off starting this as I had some other stuff to watch first, but couldn't avoid some of the comments about it being a typical Dai Sato show, it feels like a cross between Eureka Seven and Carole & Tuesday and I'm liking it so far. Area 88 - Episodes 1 - 3 [Final]

    Hi Everyone, Episode 7 is now out, this is the second part of our Macross retrospective with reviews of Macross II: Lovers Again, Macross Plus (OVA & Movie) and Macross Zero. Even though Zero came after Macross 7, it made more sense to group it with the other OVAs. Listen on Souncloud here...

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica - Episodes 7 - 12 [Final] (Blu-ray) I have to admit the last 3 episodes were actually very good, it was just that a lot of the preceding 9 episodes felt kind of pointless. The Magical Girl genre is not particularly my bag and admittedly I haven't seen much of it but I...

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica - Episodes 1 - 6 (Blu-ray) I've always wanted to see Madoka Magica and there still seems to be a fairly constant level of chatter about it so I thought it was about time I saw it, I have to say half way through the series I'm struggling to see what all the fuss is...

    RahXephon - Episodes 20 - 26 [Final] (Blu-ray) Yes, I'll dig it out for you. From my memory it's something like: Roots of Ambition Pailsen Files TV - Uoodo City The Last Red Shoulder TV - Kummen Jungle Wars TV - Deadworld Sunsa TV - God Planet Quent up to about two thirds through episode 52...

    Get in the Other Simulwatch - RahXephon! [ep26-22/05]

    Episodes 25 & 26 Completely agree that some of the deaths don't particularly impactful and Bahbem's who hasn't had enough presence particularly felt like that but then the reveal in episode 26 that he passes from body to body and actually set this up thousands of years ago makes sense. Bahbem...

    Get in the Other Simulwatch - RahXephon! [ep26-22/05]

    Episodes 22 - 24 Isshiki's ego got the better the better of him and his plan came crashing down around him just as he thought he succeeded, serves him right for sacking Haruka (which was very funny at the same time). Episode 22 was a very reflective episode for many of the characters. Jin's...

    Get in the Other Simulwatch - RahXephon! [ep26-22/05]

    Episode 21 So this episode really starts to set up the run to the finale as Isshiki reveals the big plan for the assault on Tokyo Jupiter (and explains what those glimpses of building sites were in previous episodes) and he's pretty confident about it as he expects it to be his final mission as...
