This may well be the longest, most info-packed podcast we have ever done – but it certainly wasn’t planned that way!
We start off on a rather somber note this episode, as the Crew shares their thoughts on the recent passing of Unsho Ishizuka. Then it’s time for a “quick” news and event catchup before discussing the Macross panel at Anime Expo 2018 that Adrian and Mike helped out at.
Waiting for the premiere of Good Job at Akihabara.
You’ve heard his voice on the podcast before, but this episode we thought we’d give him a chance to tell his Macross story.
Growing up with one foot in the US, one in Taiwan, and another in Japan, this strange 3-legged creature has a unique history with the franchise and its fandom.
We also report back from a Kazutaka Miyatake talkshow where we got to ask the designer of the SDF-1 and the Yamato about his work on Macross Delta. Oh, he also had some Gundam and Blue Submarine No.6 tales to tell too.
We were recording in a new venue with new software this episode. Hopefully the sound quality didn’t suffer too much as a result but, as always, if you have any feedback, comments or suggestions, get in touch with us via Facebook or Twitter.
Miyatake was heavily inspired by Cambodia’s Angkor Wat when designing the Protoculture ship Sigur Berrentz.
Chapter 5 of Yamato 2202 (episodes 15-18) is out and Tim Eldred joins us to catch up on the latest news, merchandise and controversy, before walking through every element in detail and help us put the dots together.
Does Chapter 5 deliver on promises that previous episodes hinted at? Join us to find out!
Despite the controversy that the unveiling of the “Galaxy” has caused among some sectors of the fan community, it actually isn’t a new design at all.
