SpeakerPODcast EP.128 – Listen to our Shoegaze!

Macross Crossover Live 2019, the biggest Macross event of the year – or perhaps of the last 7 years – has happened and… well, we’re all still recovering from it to be honest.

The original SpeakerPODcast Crew and some special guests (and a cat with wine) reunite to discuss who sang what, confuse Macross 30 lyrics, and debate Megumi’s skirt twirling incident.

SPEAKERPODCAST EP.125 – City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes

It’s been a good two decades since we last saw Ryo Saeba and crews latest antics in animated form grace our screens (no, we don’t talk about Angel Heart around here).

City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes hit Japanese cinemas on February 8 and appears to have struck a nostalgic chord with audiences since some cinemas are still screening it over two months later. Shinjuku itself has been caught in the grip of mokkori fever, with collaboration cafes, and promotions all over the place – some pictures of which I’ve included below.

But how does the movie stack up? Does it try to reinvent everyone’s favorite lecherous sweeper for 2019 or does it stick to doing what Ryo does best?Tune in to find out!
