Spirit Hero Wataru - Episodes 35 - 41
Thunderbolt Fantasy Sword Seekers 3 - Episode 4
SSSS.Dynazenon- Episode 5
I was a little concerned as well, but agreed, it was a good episode nonetheless.
Back Arrow - Episode 16 & 17
Despite my lamenting how Back Arrow was plodding along in my last...
Spirit Hero Wataru - Episodes 31 - 34

A particularly bonkers episode that epitomises why I love Thunderbolt Fantasy

It's a real shame that Galvion was cancelled due it's sponsor going...
Lewis and I will be recording our next episode on Sunday with reviews of another couple of obscure 80s OVAs; Nayuta and Whatever, White Bear.
Reply here with any questions or comments you have for us.
I have to admit that now I've watched episode 15 it does feel like it's got into the mid series flab, I'm going to see it through, but not holding my breath that Back Arrow is going to end up anything more than mediocre to average at best.
I've found the range of opinions really interesting as...
Spirit Hero Wataru - Episodes 28 - 30
Thunderbolt Fantasy Sword Seekers 3 - Episode 2
Super High Speed Galvion - Episodes 10 - 15
The first half of Galvion felt a bit by the numbers but it has really shifted a gear in th second half and I am really enjoying it
SSSS.Dynazenon - Episode 3...
Thunderbolt Fantasy - Bewitching Melody of the West
Watched this prequel film in preparation of...
Thunderbolt Fantasy Sword Seekers 3 - Episode 1
I have been looking forward to the return of Thunderbolt Fantasy and it didn't disappoint.
Super High Speed Galvion - Episodes 7 - 9
Super High Speed Galvion - Episodes 1 - 6
I watched this raw in the 00s but wanted to rewatch it now that there is a good fansub available, I've always liked Galvion's design by Koichi Ohata.
Spirit Hero Wataru - Episodes 22 - 25
Back Arrow - Episodes 12 & 13
SSSS Dynazenon - Episode 1
Hokuto no Ken - Episodes 103 - 109 [Final]
It feels great to have finally watched all of HnK, for the life of me can't remember why I stopped at episode 80-something over a decade ago. An awesome series and a fantastic final confrontation between Ken and Roah and HnK definitely deserves it's...

We've new original mecha coming from Sunrise in October with the airing of Kyoukai Senki, helmed by Nobuyoshi Habara who helmed Fafner, which is a great mecha franchise so I've got high hopes for this. Link to ANN's article below.
Kyoukai Senki ANN article
Hokuto no Ken - Episodes 92 - 97
Demon Hero Wataru - Episodes 12 - 14
Back Arrow - Episode 9
I've long wanted to see this and a fansub has finally become available, a decent and pretty standard 80's one shot OVA, the 1994 version was better IMHO.
As Neil.T said the first few...
Hokuto no Ken - Episodes 89 - 91

Now into the final story arc of Hokuto no Ken.

MAZE: The Mega-Burst Space - Episodes 1 & 2 [Final]
This OVA fits a lot in it's 2 episodes...
Much later than I anticipated our latest episode is now out. This is a bit of a selfish one on my part as I love bike racing so I made Lewis watch a couple of 80s racing OVAs; Bari Bari Densetsu and Circuit Angel - Resolving Starting Grid.
