It was supposed to be a quiet Sunday morning podcast but then we kinda news-jacked ourselves from the future and well… it’s complicated, okay?
What’s not complicated is the sheer amount of cool anime stuff that’s been happening recently! We visit the Cowboy Bebop cafe, watch Macross Delta Passionate Walkure in MX4D, hear a bunch of Macross 2 songs performed live in concert, discuss Sentinel’s new Mospeada Ride Armor and go to not one, but two Shoji Kawamori talkshows to hear all about the creation of Passionate Walkure and the designing of the Armored VF-31 – that’s right, it’s double the Kawamori this episode of the SpeakerPODcast!
Back in February, Renato made his Macross singing debut at Mylene Party #4 … which mysteriously just
This is relevant, trust us.
so happened to be the final Mylene Party. Coincidence?!?!?
The Crew also stopped by the Noriyoshi Ohrai exhibit to get up close and personal with the original painting of one of the most iconic images in Macross history and attempts to answer that eternal question – Just how many Steven Seagals can fit into a single illustration?
Karice joins the SpeakerPODcast Crew in the middle of a very noisy izakaya to discuss a recent Macross fan club event. Why is one of the producers of Macross talking about VF-X? What do Macross 2 and Macross Delta have in common? And what is the one possible hint that we’ve gotten regarding the new show?
Renato also weighs in on Passionate Walkure (hey, he liked it!) before breaking down the recent remixed reboot of Macross the First. We then wrap things up with a bit of Yoshiki Fukuyama. BOYCYCLES!
With the madness of “Macross February” finally behind us, the SpeakerPODcast Crew takes some time out to chill with a few drinks and discuss Walkure’s 3rd concert and the marketing synergy behind it in more detail.
